Here’s the best Warzone AX-50 loadout you should be using for maximum range and mobility to take enemies down afar in Season 5.

There are various great sniper loadouts in Warzone Season 5 for players who prefer to pick off their enemies from a distance. While the AX-50 isn’t as great as some other weapons in this class, it’s still a viable pick.

This Sniper Rifle lets you deliver hard-hitting shots from long ranges that will down enemies without any trouble.

We’ve prepared the best attachments and perks to make the best Warzone AX-50 loadout to help you take down enemies at far distances without any trouble.

Best Warzone AX-50 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Compensator
  • Barrel: 32.0″ Factory Barrel
  • Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope

We’ll start the best Warzone AX-50 loadout with the Compensator muzzle to reduce the weapon’s recoil, allowing for greater precision when firing at enemies during long-range combat.

The 32.0″ Factory Barrel will further boost the weapon’s recoil control while also improving the damage range and bullet velocity of the best Warzone AX-50 loadout. Now, you’ll be more likely to score eliminations with a single shot.

You’ll want to be able to get an enemy in your sights right away after reloading, and that’s where the Singuard Arms Assassin stock comes in. This attachment will improve your Aim Down Sight Speed.

You don’t want your aim ruined by terrible steadiness, so we’ve picked the Granulated Grip Tape for a relaxed and controlled grip. This attachment will boost your aiming stability, keeping you steady and on target when using the best Warzone AX-50 loadout.

A Sniper Rifle is only as good as its optic, so we went with the Variable Zoom Scope for the impressive magnification it provides to the Warzone AX-50.

Best Perks to use with Warzone AX-50 class

Double Time perk in Warzone
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

While sniping, it’s vital to reposition yourself between shots and keep your enemy guessing where you are.

We’ve picked the Double Time perk to increase your Tactical Sprint duration as well as increasing your speed while sprinting.

We strongly recommend paring an Assault Rifle or SMG with the Kar98k for close-range encounters. Overkill will allow you to take two primary weapons from your first loadout. Then you can hide from the radar with Ghost from your next loadout.

Amped allows you to switch weapons faster and reload launchers faster. Great for use with a Sniper/LMG loadout. This will be useful when switching back and forth between your primary and secondary weapons.

Most recent AX-50 buffs and nerfs

Raven Software has not applied any buffs or nerfs to this Sniper Rifle in some time, so the AX-50 has stayed relatively the same recently.

However, we will update this section with the latest buff or nerf for the AX-50 Sniper Rifle and how it affects the best Warzone AX-50 loadout.

How to unlock the AX-50

Best Alternatives

Warzone players roast “embarrassingly low effort” The Numbers event

Warzone players have slammed Season 5 Reloaded’s The Numbers event, calling the challenges and changes “lazy” and “terrible.”

Warzone The Numbers event and Sai melee weapon

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded’s The Numbers event is here, but players have been less than impressed with the “low effort” and “lazy” challenges and changes.

Each Season, there’s usually a Warzone event to give players some new challenges to complete and rewards to earn. These have included fan-favorites such as The Haunting of Verdansk and the 80s Action Heroes, but players are calling Season 5’s The Numbers event a disappointment.

For this event, the Mobile Broadcast Stations have been activated and players must visit each one to complete the challenges and unlock the Sai melee weapon. With how quick and easy this is to complete, players have slammed the “extremely underwhelming” event.

As with every event, players must complete a series of challenges to unlock Charms, Calling Cards, and an exclusive weapon Blueprint. The Numbers follows a similar format, but all players need to do is visit each Broadcast Station and they don’t feel the event is challenging or unique enough.

In a post slamming the latest Warzone event, Reddit user TheDudeofDudez said that The Numbers is “embarrassingly low effort” and “terrible.” They complained of the challenges lack of variety, where all you have to do is “Walk up to a van and press a button, hear some numbers, and that’s it.”

Another Redditor, JustThatOneGuy, elaborated on the issue. They explained that they completed all but two of the challenges in one game, and that was because the gas came in. “There’s no sense of speed or urgency as they’re active all match once activated,” they described. “No skill required to win gunfights as there’s no limit on how many are available per game.”

Popular Warzone YouTuber JGOD had the same experience, saying that it took him seven minutes to complete the challenge and unlock the Sai.

The event is now live, so it’s very likely it will stay this way until it concludes on October 5. While many feel it’s disappointing, some said they are just glad that the free Sai weapon is easy to unlock.

  2. Approach the back-left corner of the station
  3. Stand in front of a big, red button and press your “Activate” button
  4. You’ll receive some cash, and a broadcast will be played, so make sure you’re stood close enough to hear it
