The map of Al Mazrah is giant in Call of Duty: Warzone 2, and players will need a long-range weapon in order to succeed. While players can equip a strong assault rifle or light machine gun, we recommend going with a sniper rifle if you truly want to do some damage. The sniper rifles in Warzone 2 are particularly strong, as all five of the guns in the class are viable in one way or the other. However, only a select few sniper rifle loadouts make our list of the absolute best to use in Warzone 2.
These sniper loadouts will feature three different weapons. Also, we won’t be listing marksman rifles, this is a list of pure sniper rifles in Warzone 2. We’ll make a separate list for the marksman rifles in a future guide. For now, though, players can find out which sniper rifles they should use above the rest in Warzone 2.
Best Sniper Rifle loadouts in Warzone 2
We won’t list the three loadouts in any specific order, so don’t take any stock into where a loadout is listed.
1. Signal 50
The most powerful sniper in Warzone 2 had to make this list — the Signal 50 is a semi-automatic beast of a sniper that can inflict a ton of damage with a single shot. It has abysmal mobility, but players can think of it as the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle from the original Warzone; it’s strong, slow, and should be kept at a distance.
- Barrel: 29″ TV Kilo-50
- Stock: FSS Echo Stock
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Magazine: 7 Round Magazine
- Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip
2. MCPR 330
If players want a slightly faster sniper, they can go with the MCPR 330. This bolt-action sniper is more mobile than the Signal 50 and almost as powerful. It’s a traditional sniper that can be used by any player in Warzone 2.
- Barrel: 22″ OMX-456
- Laser: FSS Ole-V Laser
- Magazine: 5 Round Mag
- Bolt: Cronen Smooth Bolt
- Rear Grip: Cronen Cheetah Grip
3. Victus XMR
The new sniper rifle in Season 1 of Warzone 2 also happens to be one of the best options in the class. The Victus XMR is lethal at long range and has an incredibly balanced loadout, making it a threat for any situation.
- Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
- Optic: SP-X 80 6.6x
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive
- Stock: XRX Rise 50
That does it for our list of the top sniper rifle loadouts in Warzone 2. We recommend trying out all of the snipers in the game, though, as each has its own strengths.
