"Penetrates through almost anything. The recoil is so tremendous you'll have to stop and fire."
— Inventory description.

The Anti-Tank Rifle is a powerful weapon in Dino Crisis 2 that can be used by Dylan Morton.


The Anti-Tank Rifle appears as a large, green and grey coloured bullpup rifle. The gun is thought to be of .50 cal caliber, judging by the size of the bullet casings it ejects. The Anti-Tank Rifle packs a huge punch, which can send a normal Velociraptor flying, but its rate of fire is slow. It is unlocked for purchase after completing the Third Energy Facility area.

The Anti-Tank Rifle can easily kill any enemy in the game except the Giganotosaurus, which cannot be killed with conventional weaponry (though it can be stunned for a moment with this gun). Moreover, the Anti-Tank Rifle is capable of wide shots - hitting multiple enemies close together, despite appearing as a precise, single-shot rifle. Thanks to this capability, it is effectively a straight upgrade to the Shotgun. However, despite its power, the Anti-Tank Rifle should not be used against Pteranodons due to their speed and numbers making it impractical.


Performance: Attack-90, Speed-30, Range-70.

Ammo Price: 20 Pts.

The weapon comes with three capacity upgrades. A +20 upgrade costs 8,000Pts. A +50 upgrade costs 14,000Pts. Finally, a +100 upgrade costs 24,000Pts.[1]


  • The Anti-Tank Rifle bears a resemblance to a real rifle: Walther WA2000. However, the WA2000 is a precision sniper rifle chambered for regular rifle ammunition types (versions include 7.62mm NATO, .300 Winchester Magnum, and 7.5mm Swiss), whereas the Anti-Tank Rifle appears to fire much more potent ammunition, perhaps .50 BMG (or bigger).
  • Despite its name, the gun's appearance doesn't really fit the typical specs you would expect in an anti-tank rifle: it is surprisingly small for this type of weapon, it (presumably) shoots .50 BMG bullets instead of 20mm (or bigger) shells, and the barrel is far too short.
