Warzone’s big Season 6 update is now officially live and players have been busy getting to grips with all the new content. The SP-R208 is one of the new guns that can be unlocked via the Battle Pass, but what attachments should you be using?

The SP-R208 is the latest marksman rifle to join Modern Warfare’s deadly arsenal. This gun performs very similarly to that of the Kar98K, giving players the ability to quickly pump out lethal headshots. Whether it will dethrone the ever-popular HDR/Kar loadouts remains to be seen, but the SP-R208 does aim to give players more choice when it comes to choosing a deadly sniper. 

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. In order to help you get the most out of this gun, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate your enemies in Warzone and Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer.

Best SP-R208 loadout for Warzone

This loadout will allow you to grab those long-range headshots with ease.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • SP-R 26”
  • Variable Zoom Scope 
  • .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags
  • Sloan KR-600 Feather 

The SP-R208 has absolutely incredible range when kitted out with these attachments and can effortlessly down opponents with just a few shots. This marksman rifle’s rapid chambering animation allows for some quick follow-up shots, giving you tremendous amounts of kill potential at mid to long-range distances. 

If you’ve followed our other meta loadout guides, it should come as no surprise that we’ve equipped the Monolithic Suppressor. This mighty muzzle increases the SP-R208’s damage range and keeps your shots suppressed, making it a must for those that wish to kill their enemies without compromising their position. 

Both the SP-R 26” barrel and .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags effectively max the SP-R208’s damage range, allowing you to kill enemies in long-distance engagements. If that wasn’t enough, both attachments increase the rifle’s bullet velocity, so you won’t need to lead your shots that much when going for those cross-map kills. Even if you do end up missing a bullet or two, the Sloan KR-600 Feather increases your rechamber speed. This effectively enables you to keep pressuring your foes and claim kills against even the most well-armored of targets. 

Lastly, the Variable Zoom Scope is one of the two viable options in Warzone, especially if you’re looking to use the SP-R208 as your standard sniper class. This scope offers 3.5x and 8.0x magnification levels, offering great coverage across most distances. 

Best SP-R208 loadout for Multiplayer

The SP-R208 can make short work of multiple enemies thanks to its high damage and quick rechambering.
  • ZLR Asp
  • Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • XRK SP-LITE 208 Blitz
  • .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags
  • Sloan KR-600 Feather

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer modes are usually much faster paced than Warzone due to the condensed nature of its maps. Because of this, you’ll want to avoid using the sluggish but powerful loadout above. After all, mobility and quick ADS speeds are vital in multiplayer. To help you rack up those cranium kills in record time, we’ve put together the following loadout. 

First up is the ZLR Asp and XRK SP-LITE 208 Blitz. Both these attachments drastically enhance the SP-R208’s ADS speed, while also increasing your sprint to fire stat. This allows you to quickly zap onto nearby enemies and deliver lethal one-shots. 

While the SP-R208 may not have the worst iron sights in the game, we’ve attached the Corp Combat Holo Sight to provide greater accuracy and range. The optic is really down to personal preference and any standard red dot sight will do here, so make sure you play around with these to see which one is best for you. 

Rounding things off at the bottom is the 338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags and Sloan KR-600 Feather. These two attachments should always be prioritized as they not only bolster the SP-R208’s damage, they also allow you to quickly fire off more shots.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
