Best DXR-1 loadout and attachments in Battlefield 2042

Sight BKS 8X
Ammunition High Power
Underbarrel Factory Mount
Barrel Extended Barrel

The DXR-1 Sniper Rifle is a great weapon to utilize and can be made even more powerul – especially when utilizing the following attachments:

  • First off, you’ll want to equip the BKS 8X sight, as this is still one of the fastest scopes when it comes to ADS within Battlefield 2042.
  • To complement the quick ADS speed, make sure to use the High Power ammo, as this will decrease bullet drop and increase chest damage.
  • Because of the other attachments we’re utilizing, you can leave the Underbarrel unchanged with its default Factory Mount.
  • Choose the Extended Barrel, as this will increase the DXR-1’s Velocity, and combined with the High Power ammo, packs a serious killing blow.
