The SP-X 80 is a powerful sniper rifle in Warzone 2 that makes short work of enemies from afar but to maximize its damage, you need a meta loadout.
ARs, SMGs, and LMGs all have their place in Warzone 2, but none of them can wipe out an enemy at long range like a sniper rifle.
On Al Mazrah, sometimes the best way to rack up kills is to post up in a power position and pick off opponents from afar.
While there are countless weapons in Warzone 2 that are capable of doing this, the SP-X 80 is a specialist for the job.
Equipped with devastating damage as well as being simple to control, this sniper is a must-use gun for any sharpshooters out there, but be sure to use our meta loadout to maximize its potential.

Best SP-X 80 Warzone 2 loadout
- Barrel: 22″ Cavalry
- Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
- Stock: PVZ-890 TAC
- Ammunition: .300 Mag High Velocity
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
For starters, you’ll want to equip the 22″ Cavalry barrel and the .300 Mag High-Velocity ammunition. These attachments combine to significantly increase the SP-X 80’s bullet velocity and recoil control, enhancing its long-range capabilities.
Next, utilize the FSS OLE-V laser and the PVZ-890 TAC stock to boost your ADS speed for snapping onto targets before they can escape to cover. Not only that, these choices improve your overall mobility and sprint speed.
Finally, round off the loadout with the FSS ST87 Bolt to increase the SP-X 80’s fire rate, allowing you to get a second shot off on your opponent to guarantee the kill.
Best SP-X 80 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 it’s tempting to run the Recon perk package with the SP-X 80 for the extra flinch resistance from Focus, we feel as if Weapon Specialist offers more to the overall loadout. First up, it gives you Overkill, which allows you to run a second primary, making the overall setup significantly more versatile.
Next, Strong Arm allows you to be more precise with your throwables and launch them further. On top of that, Spotter ensures you’ll never be surprised by enemy equipment, field upgrades, or killstreaks.
Finally, for the Ultimate Perk, Weapon Specialist uses Survivor which pings any enemies you get downed by and allows allies to revive you quicker.
As for equipment, running a Grenade is a solid choice paired with Strong Arm, and a Stim for an extra boost of health is always a great option.
