In the current meta of Call of Duty: Warzone 2, sniper rifles are very much in the mix. Due to the long sight lines that are present all over the map of Al Mazrah, players have found that having a sniper in their back pocket is extremely useful. Snipers are mainly used at ranges where an assault rifle might not be able to hit shots consistently. Although, as of right now, not one sniper can one-hit K.O. an enemy, even with incendiary rounds due to a recent nerf in Season 2. If players are searching for a powerful sniper in Warzone 2 after this nerf, they should check out the Signal 50 and its best loadout.
The Signal 50 is a semi-automatic sniper rifle that can most closely be compared to the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle from the original Warzone. The Signal is an extremely powerful sniper, firing a large caliber bullet that causes the gun to kick straight up when shot. Naturally, this over-the-top recoil is one of the Signal 50’s weaknesses that will need to be corrected with its loadout. Luckily, there are certain attachments players can equip to increase recoil control while keeping the sniper’s other stats high.
To see the full loadout for the Signal 50 in Warzone 2, keep reading below.
Best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2
With this particular loadout for the Signal 50, we’re mainly looking to boost damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control. We’re not particularly concerned with mobility, seeing as though players will likely be firing at enemies who are close to or over a hundred meters away. While players can equip mobility attachments, that will hinder their ability to hit long-range targets.
- Barrel: 29″ TV Kilo-50
- Stock: FSS Echo Stock
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Magazine: 7 Round Magazine
- Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip
The loadout begins with the 29″ TV Kilo-50 barrel, which reduces mobility but increases damage range, recoil control, and bullet velocity. We continue on with the FTAC Ripper 56 and FSS Echo Stock, both of which reduce recoil and aim idle sway. The attachments are wrapped up with the SA Finesse Grip, which slightly increases ADS so it doesn’t take multiple seconds to lift the gun, and the 7 Round Magazine. We’ve decided to stick with the default Signal 50 scope, as it’s perfect for medium-long range gunfights.
