Best MCPR-300 Warzone 2 loadout: Class setup, attachments, Perks

Ryan Lemay

The MCPR-300 remains the most popular sniper rifle in the game in Season 4 even if this category of weapons is somewhat falling out of favor. If you need the best loadout to maximize MCPR-300’s potential on Warzone 2 then you are in the right place.

Warzone 2’s Season 3 update reintroduction of one-shot sniper builds thanks to the buffed explosive rounds, marking the point at which MCPR-300 was instantly brought back into popularity.

Now in Season 4, the sniper rifle’s popularity is not waning one bit as it is currently sitting at an impressive 9% pick rate according to WZRanked.

Despite this, snipers require a high level of skill and accuracy to master. Fortunately for you, the MCPR-300 dominates long-range engagements and is an ideal weapon for new players and skilled veterans alike.

The MCPR-300 brings back shades of Call of Duty’s iconic Barett .50cal which isn’t surprising as it’s based on the real world Barrett MRAD. The heavy-duty sniper can be kitted to suit multiple playstyles. Luckily, we’ve put together the ultimate meta MCPR-300 loadout in Warzone 2.


Best MCPR-300 Warzone 2 loadout


  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Barrel: 22″ OMX-456
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Ammunition: .300 Mag Explosive
  • Magazine: 5 Round Mag

Our loadout focuses on achieving the one-shot kill potential the MCPR-300 is built for. To be able to one shot it’s essential that you use the .300 Mag Explosive ammunition attachment. Without this attachment, the MCPR-300 can not one-shot a fully plated enemy.

Unfortunately, the explosive rounds lower the MCPR’s bullet velocity quite a lot. To offset this it’s best to use both the Nilsound 90 muzzle and 22″ OMX-456 barrel. These increase bullet velocity, damage range, and offer the added bonus of making any shots fired quieter.

This combination of muzzle and barrel does noticeably slow down the MCPR-300. To improve its ADS and make it feel snappier you’ll want to equip both the Corio LAZ-44 V3 laser and 5 Round Mag. These two attachments significantly speed up ADS speed making it easier to snap onto targets.

It’s recommended to use the Corio LAZ-44 V3 over the previously preferred FSS OLE-V Laser as the latter projects a highly visible laser that can give away your position. Both provide an identical improvement to ADS so you aren’t missing out on much anyway.

Best MCPR-300 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Proximity Mine
  • Tactical Equipment: Smoke Grenades

Having Overkill is essential for any Sniper Rifle loadout. It allows you to equip an SMG or AR to provide a short-range option when not holding a sniping angle. A good sniper support weapon is essential as a heavy sniper like the MCPR-300 is incredibly difficult to use up close.

Next, Double Time lets you move around the map faster. Although this isn’t an aggressive build and focuses more on stationary gameplay it’s still useful to have the ability to sprint longer. Plus the 30% increase in crouch movement speed provided by Double Time is fantastic for sneaking around.

Spotter ensures you’ll never be caught off guard by enemy equipment, killstreaks, or field upgrades. Meanwhile, Ghost partners well with a silenced sniper as it keeps you off the radar and makes it harder for enemies to figure out your location.

Finally round off the setup with a Proximity Mine which can shut off an entrance or force opposing players to give away their position before pushing you and Smoke Grenades which are fantastic for emergency repositioning.

How to unlock the MCPR-300 in Warzone 2

Thankfully, you don’t need to do anything to unlock the MCPR-300 in Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2. This is the default sniper and is therefore unlocked as soon as you get into the game.

However, you will need to level up the MCPR all the way to max level to use the best build in Warzone 2 as that’s when you unlock the .300 Mag Explosive ammunition type.
