Best Snipers & Loadouts In COD Warzone 2.0

Know more about the 3 Best Snipers in Warzone 2.0 along with their attachments and class builds.

Last updated:

Being a good sniper is a blessing in call of duty games and has huge benefits in warzone 2. Sniping is an essential part of the game and to be good at it, you need to play with the best in-game snipers.

Even when playing with a high-caliber sniper, you might not land those long-range kills. That is due to keeping the best snipers with the wrong perks and attachments equipped.

Warzone 2 currently has 5 snipers including MCPR-300, Victus XMR, Signal 50, LA-B 330, and SP-X 80. Out of 5, our top 3 suggested sniper rifles are LA-B 330, Signal 50, and Victus XMR.


Key Takeaways:

  • Sniping is very important in Warzone 2.0 and it’s easy if done with the best in-game snipers.
  • Warzone 2.0 is a fast-paced game, so you need a sniper which has fast ADS and Chambering speed.
  • You can’t one-shot your opponent with every sniper in warzone 2.0 so other strategies need to be acquired.

Sniping is interesting in warzone 2 because you cannot one-shot an enemy even with a perfect headshot. If you are equipped with 3 armor plates (250 HP), still the highest damage a sniper can deal to you is 200.

Let’s dive right into it.

LA-B 330

Description

LA-B 330 is the best bolt-action sniper rifle in the game right now. It is debatable to say Signal 50 is better, but the greater handling and more accuracy of LA-B 330 prove it’s a better choice.

Bolt-action snipers are known for their long range, but LA-B 330 comes with additional high damage and more accuracy which makes it the deadliest sniper in warzone 2.0.

Bullet Velocity plays an important role when using LA-B 330 as higher bullet velocity leads to less bullet drop so the bullet projectile is straighter and more accurate. LA-B 330 can be unlocked by reaching level 16 with SA-B 50 Marksman rifle.

Best Weapon Attachments

LA-B 330 works have a wide range, but we suggest the following weapon attachments which are suitable for high-kill rounds when under pressure.

  • Barrel: 23.5” Fluted R-67
  • Bolt: FSS ST87
  • Comb: Aim Assist 406
  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Laser: FSS Ole-V Laser
  • Stock: ZLR T70 Pad Extension

As mentioned above, Bullet Velocity and High Damage are two important factors when using LA-B 330. The 23.5” Fluted R-67 fulfills both our requirements and additionally, suppresses our shots so our position is not revealed.

To minimize ADS time, we have used ZLR T70 so you can quickscope in aggressive plays. LA-B 330’s better default ADS and higher mobility property makes it a powerful sniper when you are ADSing too much and playing a fast-paced game.

It’s normal for any sniper user to miss a shot so in that case, recovery is very important. The FSS ST87 bolt makes this easy as the time taken after missing a shot and getting your sniper ready to shoot again is reduced to high amounts, so you recover the missed shot by hitting the opponent again.

Best Perks & Secondary Pick

You are allowed 2 Base Perks in your loadout. We will suggest that you keep Overkill as your first Base Perk. Overkill lets you equip any primary gun as your secondary gun. So, if you have LA-B 330 in your first slot, you need something powerful and faster in the second slot.

In this case, Kastov 545 is the best option for you. 3 terms are enough to describe this Assault Rifle: Low Recoil, High Damage, and High Accuracy. Kastov 545 will be your perfect companion when opponents intend to aggress on you.

The second base perk can be Bomb Squad. When equipped on it, you take less damage from non-killstreak explosives hence keeping your survival rate high. Keep Focus as your mid-game bonus perk which will increase your ADS accuracy due to extended Hold Breath duration.

Finally, for your Ultimate Perk, use High Alert due to which your vision pulses when an opponent is detected outside of your vision. It quickly alerts you that the enemy is close by, so you get cautious and search for them.

Signal 50

Description

If you are looking for speed, then your answer should be Signal 50. This is, by far, the fastest sniper in warzone 2. Talk about quick scope kills, ADS kills, or even long-range kills, this sniper can do everything and that’s why Signal 50 is one of the best snipers in warzone 2.0.

Getting battle royale victories in Al-Mazrah can be hard for a sniper player. With Signal 50 as your primary weapon and some tweaks, this sniper can dominate.

Best Weapon Attachments

After testing a lot of attachments on this sniper, we have finalized the best weapon attachments which provide increased fire rate and more recoil control.

  • Barrel: 29″ TV Kilo-50
  • Laser: FSS Ole-V Laser
  • Magazine: 7-Round Magazine
  • Muzzle: Bruen Agent 90 Silencer
  • Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip
  • Stock: FSS Echo Stock

A few points to note in the preferred attachments. Lasers are a big drawback as their beam is visible to enemies. But we have kept it to trade our loss with more ADS speed and aim stability. Hence, proven to be a potential option for aggressive kills.

Another point to note is that we have left optical attachment to be your personal choice as it does not matter a lot on Signal 50. The weapon in its default state is slow, so we have used the SA Finesse Grip which adds more to the sprint-to-fire speed along with improved ADS speed so you will feel a lot better when quick scoping.

Bullet Velocity is always an important point when it comes to choosing snipers. That is why, to end things off, we have used the Bruen Agent 90 Silencer attachment to reduce gun recoil and also decrease bullet drop, making it a very accurate sniper.

The 7-Round Magazine is used to give you a couple of extra shots when you are feeling confident and sprinting on your enemies.

Best Perks & Secondary Pick

Our main objective here is to have a high survival rate in Al-Mazrah to win battle royale games. For that, we need to stay in the shadows and play slowly. We will be deciding our perks and packages according to this.

The best choice along with a sniper is to keep Overkill as your first Base Perk. As you know it, you will get to keep a second primary gun with you to stop enemies from crowding you.

Keep Kastov 74-U or M16 as your second primary weapon. They are fast, effective, and deal significant damage to close-range targets so you can throw opponents out of the lobby.

The second suggested Base Perk is Tracker. A sniper’s main play is Stealth and for that, we always lay low. You will need to silence your gun and your steps and for that, we have Tracker.

We recommend using Fast Hands as your mid-game Bonus Perk. It makes switching guns faster and also makes reloading fasters so you can get involved in multiple fights.

Ultimate Perk should be Ghost. Most players keep Bird’s Eye equipped on their perk list so, to keep yourself undetected from those UAVs, Ghost will save you. Always remember to take care of your flanks when playing in shadows, so keep some claymores with you all the time.

MCPR-300

Description

At number 3, we have MCPR-300 which is the best long-range option for you. MCPR-300 is your only option if you are camping and want to hit long-range shots with maximum accuracy.

For Sniper Specialists, MCPR-300 is the only viable option when heading into Al-Mazrah because it is the biggest battle royale map made by the developers.

It can be used as a deadly long-range sniper as well as a quick-scope killing machine if used with proper attachments and perks. You don’t have to do anything to unlock this sniper as it will already be unlocked for you.

Best Weapon Attachments

Currently, the best-tested MCPR-300 loadout will let you extend its maximum potential so you can land those unexpected shots that make your enemies rage quit.

Starting with weapon attachments:

  • Barrel: 17.5” Orca Barrel
  • Bolt: Cronen Smooth Bolt
  • Laser: FSS Ole –V Laser
  • Magazine: 5-Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Cronen Cheetah Grip

The listed Weapon attachments will increase MCPR’s fire rate, shot range, accuracy, and handling. The biggest problem with snipers is that the ADS is always shaky, so accuracy is distorted. Your 17.5” Orca Barrel will solve this problem for you as it brings stability.

The FSS Ole-V Laser and the Cronen Cheetah Grip improve MCPR-300’s sprint-to-fire speed and also ADS speed. This helps in opening your ADS faster than usual so quick scoping is a lot more efficient with these attachments.

MCPR-300 works perfectly on long-range spots so try it by picking up a position and camping.

Best Perks & Secondary Pick

Now that we have listed all the weapon attachments, let’s build the perfect class. For your secondary pick, initially in a match, keep any regular pistol as your secondary pick and go one with it. After killing an opponent, you can swap with their SMG or AR.

If you are looking for a more damage-dealing option, you will need overkill which allows you to carry two primary weapons. For that, make sure to equip the Weapons Specialist Perk Package in your loadout.

A flanking opponent is the worst nightmare of a sniper. To properly defend your flank in solo games, you will need the appropriate tactical equipment. Pick Claymores and place them at different points around you at some distance so the enemies won’t mess with you.

If you are playing to hit a 200 hp sniper shot on the enemy and then pushing them when they are one shot with a secondary weapon, keep Flash and Stun grenades with you. They will help confuse the enemy making it easier for you to get the kill.

Victus XMR

Description

Victus XMR is a newly released sniper in warzone 2. Your opponents should pray for their lives if you are fighting them with Victus XMR.

This Bolt-Action sniper rifle hits hard and has a high-bullet velocity that decreases bullet drop and makes a huge difference. It feeds on .50 Cal BMG ammunition thus explaining the heavy hitting.

Victus XMR is one of the two snipers that lets you, one-shot enemies, in warzone 2. Many players are under the impression that no sniper can knock an opponent out in 1 sniper shot, but they are missing out on all the fun.

Victus XMR can be unlocked by completing the entire A7 Sector of Season 1 battle pass which includes the four base awards.

Best Weapon Attachments

Snipers having a highly accurate aim using Victus XMR are more deadly. Our suggestion for the best Victus XMR loadout is down below.

Starting with weapon attachments:

  • Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
  • Laser: Accu-Shot 5MW Laser
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900
  • Stock: XRK Rise 50

Victus XMR will be a disaster at Al-Mazrah with a default loadout as it is not good at long-range. To increase the damage range by a significant amount, we have used the Barrel Mack 8 33.5 Super which is the longest barrel in warzone 2.

This barrel also increases the bullet velocity making this sniper more accurate and faster, but it reduces the ADS speed which is a big disadvantage. To overcome that, we used the Accu-Shot MW5 Laser which takes over and brings back the lost ADS speed making it deadly for long-range shots.

The problem with lasers is that they can be seen by enemies. But this won’t be a problem in our case as we are using it for a longer range. For fast-paced shots (sprinting and shooting), the XRK Rise 50 is your best choice as it increases weapon mobility, so the time taken to crouch, and ADS is less.

If you use explosive ammo with Victus XMR, you can one-shot your opponents which makes Victus XMR one of the best warzone 2 snipers. To unlock Explosive Rounds, you need 3 quickscope kills in 15 different matches. With our attachments, quick scoping is not a problem.  

Best Perks & Secondary Pick

Now that we have made this gun fully optimized for long shots and quick scopes, it’s time we make the whole loadout. For your secondary pick, you will need something fast to wipe out enemies on the point-blank range.

Kastov-74U is the strongest assault rifle in warzone 2 and does magic in close-range fights. It deals very high damage and can assist you if your sniper is running out of bullets. At mid-range, it might leave you vulnerable, but your fast ADS speed will save you.

If you are looking for a second opinion, STB 556 is your option. It is the most accurate assault rifle in warzone 2 and can help a lot in mid-range fights as well as close-range fights. Following the oldest trick in the book, you land a hard hit on your opponent with Victus XMR and then run them down with STB 556.

Snipers always need the right spot to sit and locate their enemies. To find a safe spot, you need to make sure it does not have any explosives planted somewhere. Equip Bomb Squad as one of the Base Perks which will detect the enemy explosives around you.

To run down your enemies quickly, you need more sprint time. For that, your second Base Perk will be Double Time which fulfills the following need. Your mid-game Bonus Perk choice should be Fast Hands which will load your weapon faster.

Snipers always need their close-range areas to be clear which is always not the case when playing Battle Royale mode. Keep Bird’s Eye as your ultimate perk which reveals the close-by enemy UAVs and Radar pings.

If you are in the mood to play aggressively, keep Flash grenades in your tactical equipment list which will blind the enemies so you can kill them easily.

SP-X 80

Description

There is no doubt that a heavy sniper rifle does the job. But never underestimate a powerful lightweight sniper rifle. SP-X 80 is a powerful sniper that can prove to be lethal at close range.

If you are struggling using SP-X 80 in Al-Mazrah due to long range, don’t worry because these weapon attachments will help you increase sniper rifle bullet range, and it will deal more damage.

Best Weapon Attachments

In Al-Mazrah, mostly the obvious way to stack up kills is to take up your sniper and camp in a corner. You can do that with any gun, but SP-X 80 can do it better than them. With the following attachments, you might have a good chance at getting that Battle Royale Victory.

We will use the advantage of a lightweight sniper, as it will be easy to switch and scope in with it. The attachments focus on damage range and accuracy.

  • Ammunition: .300 High Velocity
  • Laser: FSS Ole-V Laser
  • Muzzle: FTAC Reaper
  • Magazine: 8-Round Magazine
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
  • Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock

Choosing a heavier Muzzle will be a bad decision on a lightweight sniper rifle due to weight imbalance that is why we have chosen an FTAC Reaper. This increases the bullet velocity of SP-X 80, and you have more control over the gun recoil now which helps at longer ranges.

To give a maximum boost to the sniper’s bullet velocity, we have used the .300 High-Velocity ammo which is used on most snipers to achieve the same objective. The 8-round Mag gives you some extra shots before you reload which is useful in a 1v1 fight.

Your opponent will spot you from far away if you ADS with the FSS Ole-V laser, but it won’t matter as you will already be giving away your sniper glare. So, use it while you can add some mobility points to your SP-X 80

Best Perks & Secondary Pick

With a lightweight sniper rifle as your primary, swapping between secondary and primary picks is faster. That is why we recommend balancing your picks.

A properly tuned VEL 46 loadout can be a very useful SMG as it is unstoppable at closer ranges and will keep you alive when you are getting pushed by multiple targets. Following a pattern, you might be thinking to keep claymores and other explosives to help your flank.

In this case, try something more effective like a Heartbeat sensor and a Semtex. Instead of waiting for your enemies to get closer to the flank, detect them on your heartbeat sensor and take them out without them getting closer.

With your SP-X 80 this dominant, keep multiple camping spots in your vision and stay on the move between them as it will help you collect more kills. Weapons Specialist should be your go-to perk package as it contains overkill and does the job.

Equip Strong Arm as your second Base Perk so your throwables are more accurate and land further. This is useful to clear off-angle camping spots.

When playing with your squad, equip Survivor as your Ultimate Perk so if you ever get knocked out by an opponent, it will ping them, and also your teammates can revive you quicker. As you have Strong Arm equipped, keep your choice of grenades under tactical equipment.

Conclusive Remarks

Warzone 2.0 includes 5 snipers in their weapon inventory at their initial release. Sniping is an important part of this game. Sniping becomes fun and easy if you know the gun statistics and how to use it. LA-B 330 is the best sniper because of its high damage dealing to the upper body of your opponent. It also provides more accuracy when used with a 23.5” Fluted R-67 Barrel.

That is all for the Best Snipers in-game. Make sure you try all the snipers with our mentioned loadouts and notice the improvement you will have.

COD: Warzone 2.0 is available on Steam for PC Players. Console players can get the game for free on their respective in-game stores and enjoy it.
