Warzone undergoes dynamic shifts with each update, introducing new weapons and changes that impact the game’s meta. For those aspiring to master sniping, we’ve compiled a list of the top seven Sniper Rifles and their optimal loadouts to effectively eliminate enemies with precision.

The power of snipers is unmatched for long-range engagements in Call of Duty Warzone, providing critical support by pressuring and eliminating enemy teams from afar.

To keep them in check and refresh the game‘s meta, Activision has implemented various buffs and nerfs to multiple sniper rifles in the game.

To help you figure things out as quickly as possible, we’ve put together this list of the 7 best snipers in Warzone, along with recommended loadouts for each included.

7. XRK Stalker

Best XRK Stalker Warzone Loadout

  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Barrel: Fission 60
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive
  • Bolt: XRK Stalker Light
  • Muzzle: Mammoth 50 Suppressor

Recently added to the game, the XRK Stalker resembles the iconic Remington MSR. With great mid-range and good ADS speed, this Sniper Rifle is an alright choice. However, it’s worth noting that even with the best loadout available, its low damage makes it impossible to one-shot enemies in Warzone.

6. Longbow

Best Longbow Warzone Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Barrel: PRO-99 long barrel
  • Ammunition: 7.62X39MM High gran rounds
  • Bolt: SA-M Quickbolt

One of the key features of the Longbow is how customizable it is, allowing players to shape it for quick gunfights as well as slower and stealthier scenarios that take place in long-range maps.

5. KV Inhibitor

Best KV Inhibitor Warzone Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor
  • Barrel: KAS-10 584MM Mod
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Ammunition: .338 Magnum Spire Point
  • Stock: KV Heavy Padded

The game’s newest addition is a hybrid between a Marksman Rifle and a regular Sniper Rifle, making it the friendliest of the bunch for every newcomer. With the proper loadout to fix its recoil effect and the low range it covers, this weapon can -without a doubt- excel in its category.

4. Victus XMR

Victus XMR previewed in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Best Victus XMR Warzone Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor L
  • Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive
  • Optic: SP-X 80 6.6X

With less power and range than other snipers, the Victus XMR shines mainly thanks to its extreme mobility, making it the most agile of the bunch. It also has good ADS speed, so it works perfectly at mid-range.

3. FJX Imperium

Best FJX Imperium Warzone Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor L
  • Barrel: Fahrenheit 29″
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Ammunition: .408 Explosive
  • Bolt: FJX Blast

Opposite to the KATT AMR’s lack of mobility, the FJX Imperium offers a nice balance of handling and aiming stability. This ultra-silent weapon works well for mid and long-range distances thanks to its ADS speed and helps the player’s stealthiness with add of the Sonic Suppressor L muzzle.

2. MCPR-300

MCPR-300 previewed in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Best MCPR-300 Warzone Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor L
  • Barrel: 22″ OMX-456
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Ammunition: .300 Mag Explosive
  • Magazine: 5-round magazine

Even though the MCPR-300 lacks control and accuracy, both can be enhanced following the loadout from above. This Sniper Rifle continues to be at the top of the game thanks to how great it performs due to its solid range and damage levels.

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor XL
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V laser
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Spire Point Rounds
  • Barrel: Zang-34
  • Bolt: Ephemeral Quickbolt

The KATT AMR is by far the best Sniper Rifle in Warzone at the moment as it’s the only one-shot sniper available so far. Despite its lack of mobility (which can be enhanced with the proper loadout), the rifle’s range and accuracy make it a great weapon for long-range lovers.
