Defender is the title of a group of common assault rifles that are manufactured exclusively by Dahl and use the Jakobs barrel.

Usage & Description

The Defender is highly effective as a long-range or sniping weapon. The higher damage and accuracy but lower fire rate granted by its barrel make it less useful while hip-firing or at short ranges.

Notable Variants

  • Scorpio - Unique assault rifle with a variable burst fire count when zoomed and variable fire rate when hip fired.


  • The Defender is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
