Victus XMR Warzone 2.0Activision

The Victus XMR is a top-tier sniper rifle in Warzone 2 and is capable of one-shotting opponents from afar with a top-tier loadout. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with the best Victus XMR meta setup in Warzone 2.

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

Alongside the MCPR-300, the Victus XMR is the premium sniper rifle in Season 2 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, Perk Package, and equipment to use.


Best Victus XMR Warzone 2 loadout


  • Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
  • Muzzle: Bruen Counter-Ops
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Ammunition: .50 CAL incendiary
  • Stock: XRX Rise 50

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. For starters, equip the Mack 8 33.5 Super Barrel and the Bruen Counter-Ops muzzle which increase damage range and bullet velocity.

Along the same lines, the .50 CAL incendiary Ammunition is absolutely essential if you want to instantly down your opponents from long distances.

We can’t dump all of our resources into increasing the weapon’s damage range, so to help balance everything out, we recommend using the VLK LZR 7MW Laser to improve your ADS time.

Lastly, we opted to use the XRX Rise 50 Stock to give the Victus improved aiming stability to better lock onto enemies when aiming down sights. Aiming stability tends to be an issue for most MW2 weapons.

Best Victus XMR Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

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

You would think we would choose the Recon Perk Package while using a Sniper Rifle, but having Overkill is essential for any Sniper Rifle loadout. It allows you to equip an SMG or AR to provide a short-range option when not holding a sniping angle.

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.

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

How to unlock the Victus XMR in Warzone 2

The Victus XMR Sniper Rifle is unlocked by completing Sector A7 of the Season 1 Battle Pass, as the weapon is the High-Value Target (HVT) of that area. Luckily, this is one of the free Sectors of the new Combat Map Battle Pass, so can get hold of the gun without purchasing the premium option.

Best Victus XMR alternatives in Warzone 2

We believe that the Victis XMR offers the best damage in the Sniper Rifle class, but if it’s not cutting things for you, we recommend trying the SPX-80.
