Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has revealed his best SP-R208 (R700) loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone, demonstrating how powerful this new marksman rifle can truly be. 

The SP-R208 is one of the latest weapons to join Warzone’s deadly arsenal in Season 6, so it was only a matter of time before it featured its very own NICKMERCS makeover. While it may have lost its original  Modern Warfare name (R700), it still packs an almighty punch when kitted out with the right attachments. In fact, this marksman rifle is one of the very best sniper classes in the entire game. 

Offering both incredible range, high precision, fast rechambering, and huge damage potential – the SP-R208 is one gun you’ll want to add to your collection. This particular loadout is all about maximizing the SP-R208’s range and accuracy, giving players the ability to deliver devastating one-shots that send opponents reeling to the gulag.

If you’re after a hitscan sniper that is both incredibly easy to use and extremely potent, then this loadout will give you all the tools needed to grab a dominant Warzone win. 

Best SP-R208 loadout for Warzone

The SP-R208 is the best sniper rifle in Warzone
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor 
  • Barrel: SP-R 26”
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Solozero SP-R 28mm
  • Ammunition: .338 Lupua Mag 5-R Mags

Nick’s loadout is very similar to our own SP-R208 build, but his one sacrifices a little speed and converts it into higher accuracy. However, the loss in speed is negligible when you can simply click on heads and down targets across any range. However, the 7x magnification on the Solozero SP-R 28mm can make it a little difficult to use on closer targets, so you’ll want to use an AR to cover this weakness.

Both the Monolithic Suppressor, SP-R 26” barrel, and .338 Lapua Mag 5-R Mags effectively max out the SP-R208’s damage range, allowing you to kill enemies in long-distance engagements with deadly precision. If that wasn’t enough, the barrel and ammunition also serve to increase the SP-R208’s bullet velocity. 

“This thing is no joke. I’m telling you, this is the best sniper in Warzone by far,” the Twitch star said. “It’s just like the Kar98k as it shoots fast and it’s got a crazy ADS, but the crazy thing about this sniper is that it’s hitscan.”

This means you won’t have to lead your shots at range, effectively eliminating any frustrations that come with long-distance sniping. Being able to just focus on your target and not having to compensate for bullet drop/travel time is huge, particularly when you want to rack up those high kill count games.  

The Solozero SP-R 28mm optic’s superior magnification enables you to aim for those montage-worthy headshots no matter how far the target. After all, there’s nothing more satisfying than taking out an entire squad before they can even react. 

Nick uses this SP-R208 loadout to go on a 24-kill rampage across Verdansk, securing a dominant Warzone win in the process. It’s certainly not hard to see why this marksman rifle is currently the go-to pick for those looking to deliver lethal cross-map headshots.
