One of Modern Warfare’s classic Sniper Rifles, the AX-50 has been a contender in Warzone since launch, but here’s how you can get the most out of the often-overlooked pick. When it comes to sniper loadouts in Warzone, the AX-50 is a niche pick that can pack one hell of a punch in the right hands. It might not be the go-to option, but with the right build, it can hang with the very best.
Balance updates that arrived in the Season 3 Reloaded patch tweaked snipers across the board, making the AX-50 stronger than ever. With these adjustments, there’s never been a better time to try out the under-appreciated sniper. Here’s a complete rundown on everything you need to build the optimal AX-50 loadout in Warzone.
Best AX-50 sniper loadout in Warzone
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 32.0″ Factory Barrel
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
The default AX-50 is among the most accurate snipers in Warzone. Therefore, it’s not the end of the world if your setup drops this stat to boost other areas. That’s exactly what we’ve targeted with this build, improving ADS speed, Range, and Bullet Velocity at the expense of some accuracy. To start out, the Singuard Arms Assassin Stock along with the Stippled Grip Tape will both make the sniper harder to control. However, their benefits can’t be understated. You’ll be quickscoping better than ever thanks to these two and the addition of a Tac Laser only further improves ADS speed.

Adding a bonus 35% Max Range to the weapon, along with 55% faster Bullet Velocity, we’ve gone with the Monolithic Suppressor and the 32.0″ Factory Barrel. Combined, these attachments will boost the AX-50 in line with Warzone’s top snipers and keep you competitive from afar.
Best HDR sniper loadout in Warzone (Perks & Equipment)
- Perk 1: E.O.D.
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Secondary: PPSh SMG
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
If you’re running a sniper in Warzone, it’s absolutely crucial you set yourself up for success at close range as well. Being caught out with nothing to help could result in a quick loss. Therefore, grab an SMG and pair it with Overkill so that you can get the best of both worlds. Adding Amped to the mix will only further improve your odds of survival. An SMG would be no good if you’re slowly swapping out from the Sniper. Run these perks to fully optimize the build and become an absolute force on the map.
On top of that, the usual will do you here: there’s nothing better than the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor duo to round out a devastating Warzone loadout.
