The DMR-04 Guardian is a Rifle that is a primary weapon in VALORANT.

Summary

The Guardian is a semi automatic rifle that sits at a low price of 2,250 compared to other rifles. The Guardian is unique for being the only semi automatic rifle, having a 1.5x zoom as well as the highest damage per bullet compared to any other rifles. It is also the lowest first shot spread weapon in the game.

The Guardian, though being semi-automatic, can still fire decently fast at 5.25 rounds per second. The Guardian shines at one aspect, its damage per bullet. It is a 4 to the legs, 3 to the body and 1 to the head at any range.

The Rifle shines on the defensive side, as with its extreme damage per bullet and 1.5x zoom makes it a dangerous rifle to peek, especially since it's a guaranteed one tap to the head.
