Best XRK Stalker loadout in Warzone Season 1

A new sniper with a strong loadout

The Season 1 update in Call of Duty: Warzone introduced the XRK Stalker sniper, a bolt-action weapon that can be built to be a close or long-range monster. If you’re planning to use the XRK Stalker in Warzone, you’ll need to build its loadout in a way that allows you to compete with other long-range options.

While you can design a quickscoping loadout for the XRK Stalker, you are likely missing out on attachments allowing you to kill fully-armored enemies quicker. You will also likely find yourself in more long-range gunfights on Urzikstan, so you want your loadout to feature certain attachments for those situations.

To see the best loadout for the XRK Stalker in Warzone, keep reading my guide below.

  • Barrel: Fission 60 Barrel
  • Stock: Ural-M Stock
  • Bolt: Stalker Heavy Bolt
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive
  • Rear Grip: XRK Stalker Factory Grip

The loadout is centered around the Fission 60 Barrel and the .50 Cal Explosive ammunition. Both of these attachments give you extra damage, with the barrel also providing added bullet velocity. The .50 Cal Explosive ammunition still doesn’t allow you to one-shot kill fully-armored enemies in Warzone, but it gives the best damage profile possible with the XRK Stalker.

As for the rest of the loadout, I have Ural-M Stock for boosted flinch resistance and aiming stability while the XRK Stalker Factory Grip also helps with those areas as well. Finally, the Stalker Heavy Bolt increases rechambering accuracy, which I feel is more important than rechambering speed at longer ranges in Warzone.

Best Class Setup for the XRK Stalker in Warzone

Secondary Weapon

  • WSP Swarm, Lockwood 680, COR 45, or anything comparable


  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: Resolute


  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

And that does it for the best XRK Stalker loadout in Warzone. The sniper can’t one-shot kill fully-armored enemies, but that doesn’t mean it’s not totally useless in Season 1.
