Best Victus XMR Warzone 2 loadout: Class setup, attachments, Perks

Victus XMR Warzone 2.0

The Victus XMR is among the best sniper rifles in Warzone 2 and thanks to recent changes is among the chosen ones capable of one-shotting opponents from afar with the explosive rounds. So here’s our best Victus XMR meta loadout for Warzone 2’s battle royale.

Introduced in the Warzone 2 Season 1 update, the Victus XMR is a “hard-hitting, bolt action sniper rifle with .50 cal BMG ammunition,” based on the real-world AW50.

Alongside the MCPR-300 and FJX Imperium, the Victus XMR is the best sniper rifle in Season 3 for insta-killing enemies at long-distance. While the gun lacks mobility, it makes up for it in raw firepower which is essential for dominating foes on Al Mazrah and Ashika Island.

Here’s the best loadout for the Victus XMR, including the attachments, perks, and equipment to use.


Best Victus XMR Warzone 2 loadout


  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90 Silencer
  • Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
  • Laser: Accu-Shot 5MW Laser
  • Stock: XRX Rise 50
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive

For our loadout, we focused on making the weapon one-shot enemies with ease and made sure it was powerful when used at long range. To do so you’ll need to use the .50 Cal Explosive ammunition as it isn’t possible to one shot against a fully plated enemy without it.

The downside to the Explosive rounds is that they noticeably decrease the Victus XMR’s bullet velocity. To offset this it’s best to use both the Nilsound 90 Silencer muzzle attachment and Mack 8 33.5 Super barrel. As an added bonus the silencer will also make any shots fired quieter.

Since both the silencer and barrel slow down the Victus XMR it’s best to use the two remaining attachment slots to speed up the ADS. The best attachments for this are the Accu-Shot 5MW Laser and XRK Rise 50.

After the Season 3 patch, it’s better to use the Accu-Shot 5MW Laser than the VLK LZR 7MW as the latter has an extremely visible laser that can give your position away. Both provide the same ADS increase so you aren’t missing out on much anyway.

Best Victus XMR Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Smoke Grenades

Having Overkill is essential for any Sniper Rifle loadout as it allows you to equip an SMG or AR to provide a short-range option when not holding a sniping angle.

Next, Double Time is a nice quality-of-life perk to have as it makes getting around the map easier. The 30% crouch movement speed increase shouldn’t be overlooked either as it can be useful whilst trying to stay quiet and sneak up on an enemy team.

Spotter ensures you’ll never be caught off guard by enemy equipment, killstreaks, or field upgrades. This is particularly useful when entering buildings where enemy teams could have set up claymores and proximity mines.

For the Ultimate Perk, it’s best to use High Alert as this perk gives you a chance of fighting back when shot from behind. Since most players don’t use Cold Blooded you’ll receive a lot of intel on where other teams are positioned using this.

We round off the setup with a Throwing Knife for finishing off opponents quickly and Smoke Grenades to help reposition and create cover in areas that would otherwise put you at risk.

How to unlock the Victus XMR in Warzone 2

The Victus XMR Sniper Rifle was originally unlocked by completing Sector A7 of the Season 1 Battle Pass. However, those who missed out can still acquire the sniper rifle by completing its respective challenge or picking up and exfilling with any Victus XMR variant in DMZ.

Best Victus XMR alternatives in Warzone 2

We believe that the Victis XMR offers some of the best damage in the Sniper Rifle class, but if it’s not cutting things for you, we recommend trying the MCPR-300.

Equipped with devastating damage as well as being simple to control, this sniper can kill in one shot and is overall among the most consistent Warzone 2 sniper rifles.
