It may have been nerfed but the MTZ Interceptor is still one of the best options in Warzone, especially with this optimized loadout that can dominate at every range.

Following a nerf on January 11, the MTZ Interceptor has become slightly less dominant but is still one of the best weapons in Warzone. Another nerf has been confirmed to be coming in the “near future,” but until then it remains a top-tier weapon.

The main strength of the MTZ Interceptor is that it’s laughably easy to use since it recenters perfectly between shots. This means you can spam-fire it to your heart’s content and rack up headshots and fast downs with ease.

Even so, the MTZ Interceptor only reaches its true potential in Warzone with an optimized loadout like this one that we’ve put together for your convenience.


Best MTZ Interceptor Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor L
  • Barrel: MTZ Blackthorn Barrel
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Stock: MCW Blackjack
  • Magazine: 20 Round Mag

The main priority with the MTZ Interceptor is to maximize range while minimizing recoil. The two most impactful attachments for this are the MCW Blackjack stock and MTZ Blackthorn Barrel which when used together make the marksman rifle much more accurate.

Continuing the theme of recoil and range, the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor is an excellent attachment that not only bumps up those key stats but also silences the MTZ Interceptor. This keeps you off the minimap making it harder for enemies to find you.

As with most Warzone guns, a larger magazine is beneficial to reduce the amount of reloads required and the biggest on the MTZ Interceptor is the 20 Round Mag. Finally, an easy-to-use medium to long-range optic like the Corio Eagleseye 2.5x is perfect for a precision weapon like this.

MTZ Interceptor Warzone Loadout: Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Focus
  • Perk 3: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 4: Combat Scout
  • Lethal: Proximity Mine
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

As with most Warzone loadouts, Double Time is an excellent option that provides additional mobility by improving your Tactical Sprint. For Perk slot 2, Focus lends itself well to the MTZ Interceptor by reducing flinch ensuring your shots hit their mark even when under pressure.

Cold-Blooded is practically a must with a precision weapon like this as it negates High Alert making it harder for enemies to predict and dodge your shots. Furthermore, it stops you from showing up on thermal optics which is useful.

Though there are several good options in Perk slot 4, Combat Scout stands out as having the best synergy with the MTZ Interceptor. It automatically pings and marks targets you shoot at for your teammates providing unbeatable callouts and communication.

Since you are likely to be playing a little slower with the MTZ Interceptor, a Proximity Mine is a good idea to prevent enemies from flanking you as easily. Then when you need to rotate or move a Smoke Grenade can be used to cover open areas that would otherwise be dangerous.

How to unlock MTZ Interceptor in Warzone

The MTZ Interceptor is an Armory Unlock which can be activated after reaching Level 25 and then completing five daily objectives. Alternatively, extracting with an MTZ Interceptor in Zombies will immediately unlock the marksman rifle letting you skip the grind entirely.

Best alternative to MTZ Interceptor in Warzone

Another top-tier marksman rifle is the extremely underrated KVD Enforcer. It offers comparable performance to the MTZ Interceptor albeit requiring slightly more work to produce the same results. Even so, it’s a fantastic weapon that we wouldn’t be surprised to see become meta.
