The ability to one-shot kill an opponent has always been the main attraction for sniper rifle loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. Snipers are meant to view enemies from afar and, if players are accurate enough, down them without the enemy knowing what hit them. The snipers in Warzone 2 are incredibly versatile, with most of them seeing a relatively high pick rate thus far in Season 1. However, there’s currently only one sniper rifle loadout that has the ability to one-shot kill an enemy in Warzone 2.
There are five sniper rifles in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 at the time of writing, which is in the middle of Season 1. The LA-B 330 is the least-picked sniper rifle due to its inability to kill opponents in a timely manner. The other four snipers all have decently high damage, and all of them can down an enemy in two shots. The four remaining snipers, the MCPR, SP-X, Victus, and Signal 50, can all one-shot kill an opponent who has two armor plates. Of course, this will require a headshot.
If you’re looking for a sniper rifle loadout that can one-shot a three-plated enemy in Warzone 2, though, then keep reading below.
One-shot sniper rifle loadouts in Warzone 2
Currently, only the Victus XMR can one-shot kill a fully-armored enemy in Warzone 2. The Victus XMR is the newest sniper in the game, arriving with the Season 1 update via the Battle Pass. The Victus boasts the highest damage in the sniper class and can devastate enemies with the right loadout.
- Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mw
- Optic: SP-X 80 6.6X
- Stock: XRX Rise 50
- Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive
This Victus XMR loadout has the ability to one-shot kill enemies as long as players shoot them in the head. The loadout breaks straight through armor, even enemies with three plates equipped. If players can hit their headshots, there’s not a better sniper rifle loadout currently in Warzone 2.
