The Denel NTW-20 is a multi-caliber anti-materiel rifle produced in South Africa since the 1990s. It can be chambered for cartridges ranging from 14.5×114mm to 20×110mm Hispano-Suiza, feeding from a magazine mounted on the weapon's left side. The 65-pound weapon is fielded by a crew of two, one carrying the receiver, and the other the barrel and ammunition. To aid in carrying, a large rounded carrying handle is often affixed to the weapon.

A future variant of the weapon dubbed the NTW-50 (apparently chambered for a .50 caliber cartridge) appeared on Battlefield 2042.
