The 3-Line Rifle has made its way into the Warzone meta once again in Season 5 Reloaded. If you’re looking to make the most of this deadly Sniper Rifle, here’s our best 3-Line Rifle loadout in Warzone.

Warzone Season 5 Reloaded marked the end of an era as the game’s final major update and introduced a huge number of balance changes for underused weapons.

Thanks to the patch, all different types of guns can be seen around Caldera, from Assualt Rifles to LMGs.

Sniper Rifles have also made a major comeback for the first time in many months, and the 3-Line Rifle is currently one of the top long-range options in the game.

Here’s our best loadout to make the 3-Line Rifle the best it can be in CoD Warzone.

The 3-Line Rifle is currently one of the game’s best Sniper Rifles.

Best 3-Line Rifle Warzone loadout: Attachments

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 820mm R1MN
  • Optic: 1913 Variable 4-8x
  • Stock: ZAC Custom MZ
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: .30-06 20 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Perk: Silent Focus
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

Kicking things off in our best 3-Line Rifle Warzone loadout is the usual suspect — the Mercury Silencer. A handy suppressor that goes well with the Kovalevskaya 820mm R1MN Barrel as it increases speed and bullet velocity to counteract some of the lost range.

We’re partial to the 1913 Variable 4-8x scope as it allows us to be a bit more flexible with our distances and the ZAC Custom MZ is an easy one here as the attachment improves the weapon’s speed. Meanwhile, the Heavy Foregrip offers a nice boost in aiming stability and recoil recovery, making those shots easier to land.

We want .30-06 30 Round Mags to keep us stocked and Lengthened versions of the bullets will go some way to increasing its bullet velocity, making the gun an absolute laser.

Coming to the end of this loadout now and we fancy the Leather Grip as it gives a healthy upgrade to weapon ADS, getting us down the sight of the 3-Line Rifle even quicker!

On the other hand, Silent Focus makes us more resilient if we get hit whilst ADSing and Fully Loaded saves you money on Munitions Boxes.

Best 3-Line Rifle Warzone Class: Perks & Equipment

description of 3-Line Rifle in Warzone
Having the right Perks & Equipment to go with the 3-Line Rifle cannot be underestimated.
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: MP40
  • Lethal: Thermite
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Cold-Blooded dampens the hopes of any Combat Scout users, keeping your secrecy under wraps. As good as this 3-Line Rifle loadout is, there are inevitably going to be fights fought in close proximity to an enemy, so Overkill allows us to sport an extra primary, such as the MP40.

Finally, Amped quickens the switching weapon action and means that if you’re in a hurry, you can have said MP40 in your hands much faster.

Thermite and the Heartbeat Sensor are items that have been used since Warzone’s early days and we see no reason why should change that now.

How to unlock the 3-Line Rifle in Warzone

There are no challenge conditions for the 3-Line Rifle, simply rank up until you reach Level 22.

Once you’ve accomplished this relatively easy feat, you’ll be able to put the 3-Line Rifle into a loadout and set about upgrading its weapon level to acquire our selected attachments.

Alternative to the 3-Line Rifle Warzone loadout

The ZRG 20mm and Gorenko are some other unreal Sniper Rifles you can test out to see if they work for you in Warzone.

With the meta being wide open now in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded, it might not be a bad idea to give some other guns a whirl.
