Crysis Wiki

The DSG-1 is a sniper rifle featured in the Crysis series.


The DSG-1 Precision Rifle is the KPA's sniper rifle.



  • The rounds fired from the Precision Rifle do not lose damage over distance, allowing the rifle to retain its effectiveness at long range.
  • The DSG-1 in multiplayer of Crysis WARS can kill another player in a well placed headshot, even at more than 400 meters.
  • Can instantly kill an unarmored target with a body shot & a Nanosuit target in armor mode with two headshots (or one in any other mode)


  • The DSG1 has a low rate-of-fire, making it unsuitable for close combat.
  • Its ammunition is rare, available in smaller quantities than Gauss Rifle's. but snipers are more frequent during the middle chapters of the game 

Crysis 2[]

The DSG-1 returns in Crysis 2, but in name only. The stock has been significantly shortened, same with the hand guard and the top rail, to accommodate a longer, heavier barrel. Where possible, alloys and polymer replace steel and carbon fibre, slimming the overall profile, especially the width. It's a semi-auto system, chambering high-velocity .405 cartridges. It is first available in "Lab Rat" from killing a C.E.L.L. soldier. It can kill most human targets in a single headshot or single body shot, and most Ceph with a single jelly shot or two body shots.

  • It deals a high amount of damage, and is very accurate at long ranges, making it ideal for long-range, precision strikes.
  • It can be silenced, allowing for stealthy, long-range strikes.
  • It can use the Reflex Sight, allowing for some versatility and use at medium ranges.


  • The DSG-1 must be steadied for more accurate shots, which consumes suit energy at a rapid pace. However, this is not necessary.
  • The magazine capacity and ammunition reserve is significantly less than the DSG-1 from the first game.


  • The DSG-1 rifle can also be found in the final level of Crysis, inside the XO's office after the aliens attack the carrier, leaning against the desk.
  • The DSG-1 in Crysis 2's Multiplayer incorporates a 100% Armor efficiency reduction, meaning Armored targets will be damaged similarly to unarmored targets.
  • The manufacturer of the weapon is named after Nathan Camarillo, the executive producer of Crysis 2.
  • Despite the rifle being semi-automatic in Crysis 2, when doing a dry reload the player opens a bolt, removes the magazine, and closes the bolt again.
