Best Sniper Rifle loadouts for Call of Duty: Warzone

As sniping has become the meta in Call of Duty: Warzone, we’ve put together everything you need to win long-range engagements.

Warzone LW3 Sniper

Sniping is one of the most effective ways to win games of Call of Duty: Warzone, so we’ve put together everything you need to dominate long-range engagements.

As Warzone players are getting better at battle royale games, they’ve begun to realize that running at teams for close-range fights isn’t the best strategy to win. Snipers have become the meta, and most fights are now decided at range.

We’ve put together the best sniper loadouts, secondaries, and perks you can use to give you the edge when fighting at range.

Best HDR sniper loadout

For extreme long-range sniping, there’s no better option than the HDR.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ HDR Pro
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: FTAC Stalker-Scout
  • Ammunition: 7 Round Mags

As the HDR is a Modern Warfare Sniper Rifle, it’s considerably heavier than the other weapons on this list. You won’t be quick-scoping players up-close, but from far away, you’ll be unstoppable.

The HDR packs punch even with body shots, and has insanely fast bullet travel time, allowing you to click on enemies’ heads.

Best LW3 – Tundra sniper loadout

The Tundra, which arrived with Black Ops Cold War’s weapons in Season 1, is popular for its incredible bullet velocity. With the right attachments, you’ll hardly need to adjust your aim to hit far-off or moving targets.

  • Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel: 29.1″ Combat Recon
  • Optic: Royal & Cross 4x
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock
  • Ammunition: 7 Rnd

As discovered by YouTuber JGOD, the Royal & Cross 4x scope shows no glint. You can take your time to line up a headshot without revealing your location, and you can quickly reposition in fights with the lack of glint keeping enemies guessing.

And as an added bonus, the Royal & Cross 4x will also increase your ADS time.

Best Kar98k sniper loadout

You’ll see many competitive players run the Kar98k, and for good reason. It’s arguably the best sniper on the list, being an all-rounder suited for almost any situation Warzone throws at you.

Warzone Kar98k loadout
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

With these attachments, the Kar98k will have an incredibly fast ADS time, allowing you to use it even in close-medium range situations. If a player is mounted on a head glitch, you can peak with the Kar for a quick and easy headshot.

It’s also strong at long range, but you’ll need to learn the bullet travel time and drop, as its velocity is lower than the others on this list. However, if you want a quick and powerful Sniper Rifle for any situation, you can’t go wrong with the Kar98k.

Best secondary weapons for Warzone sniping

MAC-10 – close range

If you like to get up-close and personal for your fights, the MAC-10 is the secondary weapon for you. Begin a fight with a well-placed headshot from the Kar98k or Tundra, then push up with your MAC-10 in hand for quick clean-up.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

FFAR 1 – medium range

The FFAR’s popularity has risen exponentially since the DMR was nerfed. With a rapid fire-rate and insanely fast time-to-kill, the FFAR has become the go-to weapon. It will fall short at long-range for its bounciness and high recoil but it will melt enemies at anything from close-medium.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 round fast mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Pair it with any of the snipers on this list and you’ll be carrying one of Warzone Season 1’s most popular loadouts.

M4A1 – all-rounder

Being a strong choice since Warzone’s launch in March 2020, the M4A1 is a great accompaniment for a sniper loadout. Offering more range than other secondaries, the M4 is an all-rounder capable of taking fights at any range.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Stock: FORGE TAC CQS
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

Best perks for Warzone sniping

Perk 1 – Double Time

Snipers need to be moving fast to get the drop on their enemies and to stay unpredictable.

Double Time allows you to Tactical Sprint for longer and increases your crouch-walk movement speed. This allows you to quickly maneuver between cover, and strafe shoot to be a hard target.

Double time Warzone perk

Perk 2 – Overkill then Ghost

Snipers need a strong secondary weapon, and the Overkill perk allows you to take two primary weapons into the game. From your first loadout, you can get everything you need for the game ahead.

Then from your next loadout, you should take the Ghost perk. Simply pick up the weapons from your first loadout, and you’ll be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

With two primary weapons in hand, you’ll need to quickly swap between them. Whether you’ve been ambushed, or you quickly need to follow up on a body-shot with your sniper, the Amped perk will make weapons swap instantly.


Pair these Sniper Rifles, secondary weapons, and perks and you’ll be able to dominate opponents at all ranges in CoD: Warzone.

If you’re looking to overhaul your Call of Duty: Warzone loadouts, you can check out our guides on some of the weapons dominating the meta right now.

Warzone: New Roze skin glitch makes player heads invisible

A new glitch with the Roze skin in CoD: Warzone is making the head of her player model completely invisible to other players.

Published

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

A new glitch with the Roze skin in Warzone is making the head of the player model completely invisible.

It appears that a new bug has appeared in Warzone for the highly debated “Near Dark” Roze skin. Up to now, players have complained that the skin is essentially “pay to win”, as it is very hard to spot in dark areas of the map.

Now, there is a bug where the already hard-to-spot player model can have her head appear completely invisible, per a tweet from Twitter user @conne90.

In the video, whenever the Roze skin takes out her Heartbeat sensor, her head completely disappears, making her not only a hard target to spot but also nearly impossible to headshot.

We’re unsure if players will actually still be able to land a headshot while her head is not visible, but we can safely assume this is a game-breaking glitch, as it can be used to gather intel from head glitches while remaining unseen.

For example, if a player peeks over a building, staircase or ledge, they can simply pull out their heartbeat sensor and have their head completely invisible to enemy players. We’re unsure if this bug is platform specific, so be sure to let us know @charlieINTEL on Twitter if you can replicate this bug.

For the time being, we just recommend players stay vigilant, as there isn’t really much that can be done to combat this exploit. Fortunately, players cannot shoot while Roze’s head is invisible, so this isn’t a bug that will ruin normal Warzone games.

In most lobbies, we don’t expect this bug to destroy competitive integrity, but perhaps some higher skilled players will choose to intentionally or unintentionally abuse this to gain information.

We’ll update if we hear any more about this bug, or if it becomes widespread. Be on the lookout.

Teasers suggest Zombies to takeover Warzone’s Verdansk

Zombies may be taking over the rest of Warzone’s Verdansk map over the next few weeks, as teased via a video from Call of Duty.

Published

Black Ops Cold War's Warzone - Shipwreck

Zombies may be taking over Warzone’s Verdansk map in the coming weeks, as teased in a video on Call of Duty’s Twitter.

It appears that the Zombie infestation at Verdansk’s new Shipwreck location could be spreading across the map, which would match earlier theories that the Zombie horde would periodically spread as Season 2 continues.

Before the launch of Season 2, we saw a teaser of the Zombies in Verdansk’s Hospital location, which showcased a model of the Trials machine from Black Ops Cold War Zombies.

Forwarding to Season 2, the ship Vodyanoy finally reached the shores of Verdansk, then becoming a Shipwreck location for players to land at. In this POI, players could find a fully functional Zombies Trial machine, which would prompt Zombies to spawn in the Shipwreck area as part of a small event that players could redeem for a reward with a Yellow Keycard.

Now over a week after the launch of Season 2, Call of Duty posted a video to their Twitter account, signifying that the Zombie horde is headed deeper into Verdansk.

In the video, we see footage from Verdansk’s own BCH-4 news station, reporting that the Zombies are now venturing out of the Shipwreck, perhaps into the Prison or Port area. A reporter, Mike Field is seen in the footage in a helicopter overlooking the Shipwreck, before being shot down. You can watch the full video below.

Hopefully in the coming days we see where the undead are headed. Perhaps they’ll hop between different areas of the map as time goes on, or maybe they’ll be multiple areas infested with the Zombies at once.

If rumors hold up, each new area should have a Zombies Trial computer, with a short quest to do for rewards. Players may be able to use the hordes as a distraction when in gunfights with other teams, so we’re sure to be in for some interesting strategies.

Stay tuned for more information, we’ll report as soon as more is available.

Call of Duty: Warzone best weapons

Here are the current best weapons and loadouts you should be using right now in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2; list is updated regularly.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s meta changes quite often, with every new season bringing new weapons and balance updates to existing ones. With the release of the Black Ops Cold War x Warzone integration, many weapons have risen to the top.

To be the best, you should always be leveling up and using the top weapons in the game. The most powerful, consistent, and accurate ones are always front and center in the arsenal of the best players in the game.

Here’s the most meta weapons, as of Black Ops Cold War’s Warzone Season 2.

#1 – FFAR

FFAR best Warzone loadout

The FFAR is currently the fastest killing automatic weapon in Warzone. It has a fast fire rate, high damage output, and a ton of recoil.

Once you master the art of movement and recoil control, you’ll be able to destroy any enemy in mere seconds. If you’re skilled enough, you can outplay entire squads of enemies all by yourself. Here’s the best loadout:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

#2 – MAC-10

MAC-10 Best Warzone Loadout

The MAC-10 is an ultra-powerful close-range machine, that even has some effectiveness at medium range. Like the FFAR, it has a fast fire rate with decent recoil. Master this SMG to be the most effective close-range fighter.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Round Drum
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock

#3 – KAR-98K

KAR98-K Best Warzone Loadout

The KAR-98K is the best Marksman Rifle in Warzone, by far. It has near-instant aim-down-sight speeds, great range, and a highly useful Variable Zoom Scope. Currently, there is a bug regarding the Presence of Mind perk that allows players to hold their breath for insane amounts of time.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Perk: Presence of Mind

#4 – CR-56 AMAX

CR- 56 AMAX Best Warzone Loadout

Looking for a dominant medium-range Assault Rifle? Look no further than the CR-56 AMAX. Aim high for quick kills on foes. The VLK optic makes for easy targeting at long-range – just make sure you compensate for the high recoil. High risk, high reward.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic

#5 – Kilo 141

Kilo 141- Best Warzone Loadout

The Kilo 141 is the ol’ reliable of Warzone. It’s consistent at range, easy to use, and has low recoil. If you know someone who’s new to Warzone, or you’re not a fan of recoil yourself, this is your optimal weapon.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic (Can replace with Corp Combat Holo)
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

#6 – AUG (Black Ops Cold War)

AUG - Black Ops Cold War Loadout

The AUG is a burst-fire beast capable of downing enemies in just 2 well-placed bursts. Be sure to aim for the head at range. Turning enemies into swiss cheese has never been easier. As long as you have the accuracy and trigger-discipline, this is your weapon.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Drum
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip

#7 – Bruen

The Bruen is a heavy-hitting LMG, perfect for long range and medium range combat. Its 60 round magazine ensures you won’t run out of ammo fast, and you’ll always stay on target with how stable this weapon is under heavy fire.

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag
  • Laser – Tac Laser
  • Optic – Corp Combat Holo Sight

Best Perks for COD: Warzone

In order to optimize your perks, we’re going to recommend the two loadout strategy for any game. On the first loadout, your perk 2 should be overkill to get you your two preferred weapons.

On the second loadout, pick up a loadout with Ghost or Restock for lethals and tacticals, depending on your preferences. Here’s the perk rundown:

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost/Restock
  • Perk 3: Amped

This has been our take for the best weapons currently available in Warzone’s meta. You can use all these weapons for high-kill games or slow-paced wins.

Good luck out in the Warzone! Stay tuned to @charlieINTEL for any updates regarding CoD: Warzone or Black Ops Cold War.
