The designated marksman (DM) is a military marksman role in an infantry squad. The DM's role is to supply rapid accurate fire on enemy targets at ranges up to 500 meters (550 yd) with a rifle capable of semi-automatic fire called a designated marksman rifle (DMR) equipped with a telescopic sight. Like snipers, DMs are trained in quick and precise shooting, but unlike the more specialized "true" sniper, they are also attached to an infantry fireteam and intended to lay down accurate rapid fire at valuable targets as needed, thus extending the reach of the Fireteam.

The DM's role is to supply rapid accurate fire at distances beyond the normal engagement range of the fireteam's riflemen. They are equipped with a DMR or Sniper Rifle, normally attached with a telescopic sight, and have access to all grenades.
