The best M82 loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4

This high-powered sniper needs a powerful loadout

The M82 sniper rifle has never been part of the weapon meta in Call of Duty: Warzone. While it boasts a tremendous amount of damage and strong mobility, other snipers have taken center stage in previous seasons. However, with Raven Software deciding to buff the sniper in Season 4, some players are wondering what the best loadout is for the M82.

In the past, the biggest negative against the classic Barrett .50 Cal replica has been its fire rate. Raven ensured that the sniper wouldn’t be too overpowered by lowering its fire rate a significant amount. The developers saw this was too much of a nerf, though, and decided to rectify that in Season 4. The M82 now features a much higher bullet velocity and damage profile, making it a viable weapon in Season 4 of Warzone.

To go along with this new buff, a fresh loadout has been designed for the M82 in Warzone.

Aside from its fire rate, another negative against the M82 is its high recoil. While the recoil is manageable, it has turned off some players from using it in past seasons.

With the right loadout, though, both the recoil and fire rate can be boosted to make the sniper far more competitive.

  • Barrel: 20.6” Rapid Fire
  • Optic: Royal & Kross 4x
  • Stock: Marathon Stock
  • Rear Grip: SASR Jungle Grip
  • Underbarrel: Bipod

Starting off the loadout is the Rapid Fire barrel and Bipod. The former is fairly self-explanatory while the latter reduces recoil by a solid amount. Next, the Marathon Stock and SASR Jungle Grip both increase the M82’s ability at close-range by boosting ADS and sprint-to-fire time.

Finally, the Royal & Kross 4x optic makes use of the M82’s prowess at long-range. Though some players might still prefer the HDR or Tundra, this M82 loadout is strong enough to be considered for the Season 4 meta.
