The Top 5 Best Snipers in Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded, Ranked
Warzone 2 snipers are varied and mixed: here’s the low down.
As they were in the first Warzone, sniper rifles are crucial to getting the best of enemies at long-ranges. Their unmatched damage and accuracy can tear through enemy armor, even if they can’t one-hit in the BR sequel. Regardless, here are the five best sniper rifles in Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded, ranked.
The Season Two Reloaded update left sniper rifles largely untouched in Warzone 2 – but minor changes to flinch on other weapon categories serves as a slight buff to the weapon class as a whole. We also saw a Victus XMR variant made a reliable one-hit, but only as part of the limited-time Saint Patrick’s Day event. As a result, there’s only a few tweaks to this list as we approach Season 3.
5) LA-B 330
The LA-B 330 continues to languish in Warzone 2, primarily because its mediocre damage just can’t compete with the more powerful, bulkier alternatives.
It does remain slightly faster in terms of handling and ADS, but its standing as the jack-of-all-trades also makes it the master of none. Our best recommended build balances damage and range, giving you the best fighting chance against any enemy:
- Barrel: 23.5” FLUTED R-67
- Laser: FSS OLEV Laser
- Stock: ZLR T70 PAD Extension
- Muzzle: NILSOUND 90
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
4) SP-X 80
The SP-X 80 is another all-rounder, but higher damage makes it more consistent than the LA-B 330. There’s still not as much damage as some of the better-ranked sniper rifles on this list, but it’s a decent option if you prefer a faster and slightly more forgiving sniper. Again, we’re focusing on balance in our recommended attachment list:
- Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock
- Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
- Ammunition: .300 High Velocity
- Muzzle: Bruen Agent 90
- Magazine: 8 Round Mag
3) Victus XMR
Very similar to the MCPR-300, the Victus XMR falls slightly short on the basis of being slower and clunkier. Our recommended loadout only opts for four attachments, but anymore slows it down unnecessarily and threatens to detract from its jaw-dropping power. You can tweak the optic from the default scope for better ADS speed, but it might hinder you at those really long ranges:
- Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
- Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
- Grip: Bruen G305
- Stock: XRX Rise 50
The MCPR-300 is a slower sniper rifle, and it often is overlooked as a best-in-class weapon, but it definitely remains a top two pick thanks to how hard it hits. The gun makes up for its slow rate of fire and sluggish handling with significant power and incredible range. Expect to deal heavy damage at any range using this loadout, even if recoil and ADS remain middling:
- Barrel: 22” OMX 456
- Laser: FSS OLEV Laser
- Grip: CRONEN ZERO Rear Grip
- Stock: FSS MERC Stock
- Muzzle: FTAC Reaper
1) Signal 50
The Signal 50 is still comfortably the best sniper rifle in Warzone 2 – thanks mainly to its semi-automatic rate of fire. Because Raven remain set on stopping snipers from being able to one-hit, there’s clamor for faster-firing snipers that can take enemies out in multiple quick shots.
Our recommended build seeks to balance recoil, bullet velocity and range, ensuring your Signal 50 does as much damage as possible and makes hitting shots as easy as possible:
- Barrel: 29″ TV Kilo-50
- Muzzle: Nilsound 90
- Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
- Ammunition: .50 Cal High Velocity
- Stock: FSS Echo Stock
