The MSG90 is a semi-automatic sniper rifle that is featured in CrossFire.


MSG90 is a militarized version of the PSG-1, with additional improvements like reduced weight (1 kg lighter than the regular PSG-1) and faster firing speed. The MSG90 fires 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition. It has high accuracy, fast firing rate (only if scoped), and also light weight. However, it mostly takes 2 shots to kill enemies in normal health, although hitting on enemy's chest in a very close range might occasionally kill him in one shot.

What makes MSG90 special is that this rifle is extremely light to be carried around, despite that it acts as a sniper rifle in-game.

  • The model of the MSG90 used in CrossFire is an MSG90A1 since it uses a fully-hooded front sight.
  • Some CF versions sell this gun in the Item Shop on an expensive price above 40,000 GP, more expensive than the price of the PSG-1. In real life, MSG90 should be cheaper than the predecessor.
  • The magazine modeled for the MSG90 will always be a 10-round magazine clip as depicted from its size. However, this would look strange to other CF servers where the MSG90 only holds 5 rounds per magazine. Note that it should be a smaller one once coupled with 5-rounds.
  • In CFPH, players will receive a permanent MSG90 by completing the final Sniper Badge, despite this gun being available in the Item Shop.
