The KATT-AMR has brought one-shot sniping back to its peak in Warzone and this is the best loadout to effortlessly rack up kills in the battle royale.

Most of Warzone 2’s lifespan saw sniping relegated to a niche with only the Signal 50 remaining meta. This was improved somewhat when a handful of snipers were given the ability to down in one shot with special ammunition, but the bullet velocity penalty limited their usefulness.

Naturally, players have been crying out for another Kar98k level sniper ever since and they might have finally gotten their wish with the KATT-AMR easily being the most powerful sniper in Warzone since Caldera.

Best KATT-AMR Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor XL
  • Barrel: Zang-34 Barrel
  • Stock: Tactical Stock Pad
  • Bolt: Ephemeral Quickbolt
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal High Grain Rounds

To take advantage of the KATT-AMR’s exceptional power it’s essential to maximize bullet velocity. To accomplish this it’s best to use both the .50 Cal High Grain Rounds ammunition and Zang-34 Barrel, with the High Grain rounds preferred since Season 1 Reloaded when the Spire Points round were nerfed.

You can further boost bullet velocity by equipping the Sonic Suppressor Xl muzzle. As a bonus, this keeps the sniper suppressed making it harder for enemies to figure out where they are being shot from. Meanwhile, the Ephemeral Quickbolt attachment greatly improves the rechambering speed, keeping you in the fight for longer.

A downside to this setup is that it is rather heavy, so the Tactical Stock Pad is ideal for improving the KATT-AMR’s ADS speed. This keeps it feeling relatively snappy, at least for a heavy-duty Warzone sniper.

KATT-AMR Warzone Loadout: Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: Focus
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 4: Combat Scout
  • Lethal: Proximity Mine
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

Focus is an obvious choice with any sniper rifle as it not only reduces flinch when aiming down sights but also greatly extends the duration you can hold your breath. For Perk slot 2, Sleight of Hand is nice as it cuts down the KATT-AMR’s long reload time significantly.

With how prevalent High Alert is in Warzone, Cold-Blooded is a strong choice for Perk Slot 3 completely negating the effects of the popular fourth Perk. This is good for a sniper as it prevents enemies from flailing around when you aim at them making it harder to land that crucial headshot.

Combat Scout is usually a niche option for the fourth Perk slot but it’s surprisingly impactful on the KATT-AMR specifically. The passive pinging of enemies you shoot at will give your squad constant intel allowing them to follow up when required.

Since you won’t be too mobile using this sniper a Proximity Mine makes sense to lockdown entrances and make it harder for enemy teams to flank you. When you do eventually need to reposition, a Smoke Grenade can provide the cover needed to do so.

How to unlock KATT-AMR in Warzone

The KATT-AMR is unlocked in Warzone by reaching Level 4 when you first get access to the Gunsmith though you’ll still need to progress through 29 gun levels to acquire all of the sniper’s unique attachments.
