Recently in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3, a new meta weapon popped up that no one expected: the AZ-50 sniper rifle. Raven Software accidentally turned the weapon into a hit-scan weapon thanks to an unintended change in a recent update. This essentially means there’s no bullet drop or lead required when shooting this weapon. To say the least, players immediately took advantage and designed their own loadout for the AX-50 in Warzone.
However, as they always do, the developers at Raven Software patched the AX-50’s unintended change. This was done fairly quickly, so not every player was able to use the new and improved AX-50 while it lasted. While the AX-50 is certainly not what it was with the hit-scan bug equipped, it can still serve as a valuable sniper rifle in Warzone Season 3. As such, we’ve put together the best loadout for players to use with the AX-50.
Best AX-50 loadout in Warzone
The AX-50 hails from Modern Warfare and was hugely popular when Warzone first released. Since then, it has fallen to the wayside due to other, stronger snipers being introduced. At its core, the AX-50 is meant for quick scoping and medium-range engagements in Warzone. If players want a longer-range sniper, they can try out the HDR or LW3 Tundra. If they want to quick scope and beam players from around 50-100 meters, then the AX-50 is their weapon.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 32.0″ Factory Barrel
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
This AX-50 loadout in Warzone is designed to increase mobility while also improving damage range and bullet velocity. With these attributes boosted on the weapon, players will be able to go around either Caldera or Rebirth Island and take on any medium-range gunfight that comes their way.
