The SP-R208 may not be one of Warzone Pacific’s obvious contenders for every loadout, but it’s definitely still worth bringing into your matches to dominate your opponents in Caldera or Rebirth.

Warzone Season 3 has shaken up the game’s meta and players are frantically experimenting with different weapons to try and see if there are any hidden gems. The SPR-208 is a fellow Marksman Rifle, like the now nerfed Kar98K, and it’s perfect with an SMG or AR alongside it, providing players with kill potential from a distance.

If you’re a fan of Marksman Rifles or just want to see how lethal this weapon is, then you’ll want to add the SP-R208 to your collection and give it this loadout to make it one of the best Sniper Rifle loadouts in the game.

In order to help you get the most out of this gun, we’ve put together a beastly loadout that you can take into matches of CoD Warzone.

Best SP-R208 Warzone loadout

This loadout will allow you to grab those long-range headshots with ease.

Attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: SP-R 26”
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Ammunition: .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags
  • Bolt Assembly: Sloan KR-600 Feather

To begin with, the SP-R208 rifle needs a Monolithic Suppressor, a go-to attachment for most guns, to conceal our shots and keep our position secure. Maintaining a position of pure secrecy will win you a fight before your opponent even realizes where you are.

Having the SP-R 26″ barrel improves the weapon’s damage and accuracy making one-shots easier and reducing the weapon’s TTK. Whereas the Variable Zoom Scope just provides us with a bit of flexibility with regards to our range and aiming zone.

To round off this loadout, we suggest adding the .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags as they bump up the weapon’s bullet velocity stat and it means that bullets will fly true. The SP-R208-exclusive attachment, the Sloan KR-600 Feather, will increase the weapon’s fire rate, making it a more viable option if you need an extra shot or two.

Best SP-R208 Warzone class: Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: MP40
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
  • Lethal: Semtex

E.O.D is a classic Warzone Perk that still slaps in Warzone Pacific and we recommend it to tank explosives. Overkill allows us to have another primary in case an enemy gets too close and the MP40 will do just the trick.

If you do get into a predicament that needs you to have your secondary in your hands, then Amped will allow that to happen much quicker.

For our Tactical and Lethal Equipment, we think it’s a fairly easy decision as the Heartbeat Sensor, even in its nerfed Warzone Pacific form, is still an invaluable piece of tech that can give you an edge when rooting out an enemy. Whilst Semtex is a great explosive device to make your opponent move, cause them damage, and even down if you stick them with one.

How to unlock the SP-R208 in Warzone

SP-R-208
Treyarch/Activision
The SP-R-208 was released with Modern Warfare.

For those who didn’t unlock the SP-R208 in the Battle Pass when it was available, you’ll need to get two longshot kills that are headshots in five different matches with a Sniper or Marksman Rifle.

Unfortunately, this challenge is not easy but with enough patience and attempts, you’ll be able to pull it off. There’s no denying this is a tough challenge, but with enough practice at long-range, picking up kills with a sniper will gradually get easier.

Alternative to the SP-R208 loadout

Kar98k loadout
Treyarch/Activision
The Kar98k is one of the best sniper rifles in Season 5.

If you’re looking for an alternative loadout to the SP-R208, check out our Kar98 loadout. It has been nerfed though, so you might be better off trying the ZRG 20mm or HDR instead.

All three options have different characteristics and it’s worth trying them all to see what works best for you.
