The Signal 50 is the perfect rifle for beginner snipers in Warzone 2 thanks to its high fire rate and low recoil, punishing you less for mistakes while learning. Here’s our best Signal 50 loadout for Warzone 2, complete with the best perks and equipment for players drawn to the long-range playstyle.

Warzone 2’s Singal 50 boasts a great fire rate, making it perfect for taking out multiple enemies while maintaining a safe distance and holding choke points.

Not only that, its fast-firing profile makes it way more forgiving if you miss shots, unlike other snipers in the class. Warzone 2’s TTK elevates the Signal 50, making it easier to shred through enemies quickly.

In the current meta, the Signal 50 has quite low 0.4% overall pick rate, making it one of the least popular snipers in the game due to the lack of one-shot capability of MCPR or FJX Imperium. But if you cannot hit that crucial headshot then you are better off with a Signal 50 in the long run.

That said, you need the best meta loadout to maximize the Signal 50’s potential. Here are the best attachments, equipment, and Perk Package for the Signal 50 sniper.

  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Barrel: 29″ TV Kilo-50
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Ammunition: .50 CAL High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip

Similar to other Sniper Rifle builds, we focused on increasing the Signal 50’s range and recoil control. Decreasing recoil is especially important for the Signal 50 to land follow-up shots accurately.

The 29″ TV Kilo-50 Barrel is essential for increasing range, bullet velocity, and recoil control, while the Nilsound 90 muzzle suppresses your gunfire and improves velocity, too, at a slight detriment to your aiming stability.

The .50 CAL high-velocity ammunition helps pack even more of a punch to rip through enemy armor plates, while the FSS OLE-V Laser helps keep you aiming in quicker and more ready to take on surprise gunfights if they happen.

Finally, to improve mobility, we recommend using the SA Finesse Rear Grip to increase ADS speed.

Best Signal 50 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

Perk Package: Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor
  • Lethal: Grenade
  • Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade

While the Recon perk package could be extremely popular for sniper builds, we’ve opted for Weapon Specialist to take advantage of Overkill off the rip. We recommend going with the ever-dominant Fennec 45 as your second primary weapon, to negate the disadvantages of trying to run a sniper in close-quarters combat.

Next, Strong Arm allows you to be more precise with your throwables and toss them longer distances. On top of that, Spotter ensures you’ll never be caught off guard by enemy equipment, killstreaks, or field upgrades.

Finally, for the Ultimate Perk, Weapon Specialist uses Survivor which pings any enemies you get downed by and allows allies to revive you quicker.

Finally round off the setup with Semtex for flushing opponents out of cover and Flash Grenades for clearing enclosed spaces.

If the Signal 50 is a little too sluggish for your liking, we recommend trying out the Victus XMR. The deadly Sniper Rifle is capable of one-shot killing enemies and hits like a truck.

Activision described the long-range weapon as a “hard-hitting, bolt action sniper rifle with .50 cal BMG ammunition.”
