Best Sniper Rifle loadouts for Call of Duty: Warzone (According to Charlie Intel)

Sniping is one of the most effective ways to win games of Call of Duty: Warzone, so we’ve put together everything you need to dominate long-range engagements.

As Warzone players are getting better at battle royale games, they’ve begun to realize that running at teams for close-range fights isn’t the best strategy to win. Snipers have become the meta, and most fights are now decided at range.

We’ve put together the best sniper loadouts, secondaries, and perks you can use to give you the edge when fighting at range.

Best HDR sniper loadout

For extreme long-range sniping, there’s no better option than the HDR.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9″ HDR Pro
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: FTAC Stalker-Scout
  • Ammunition: 7 Round Mags

As the HDR is a Modern Warfare Sniper Rifle, it’s considerably heavier than the other weapons on this list. You won’t be quick-scoping players up-close, but from far away, you’ll be unstoppable.

The HDR packs punch even with body shots, and has insanely fast bullet travel time, allowing you to click on enemies’ heads.

Best LW3 – Tundra sniper loadout

The Tundra, which arrived with Black Ops Cold War’s weapons in Season 1, is popular for its incredible bullet velocity. With the right attachments, you’ll hardly need to adjust your aim to hit far-off or moving targets.

  • Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel: 29.1″ Combat Recon
  • Optic: Royal & Cross 4x
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock
  • Ammunition: 7 Rnd

As discovered by YouTuber JGOD, the Royal & Cross 4x scope shows no glint. You can take your time to line up a headshot without revealing your location, and you can quickly reposition in fights with the lack of glint keeping enemies guessing.

And as an added bonus, the Royal & Cross 4x will also increase your ADS time.

Best Kar98k sniper loadout

You’ll see many competitive players run the Kar98k, and for good reason. It’s arguably the best sniper on the list, being an all-rounder suited for almost any situation Warzone throws at you.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

With these attachments, the Kar98k will have an incredibly fast ADS time, allowing you to use it even in close-medium range situations. If a player is mounted on a head glitch, you can peak with the Kar for a quick and easy headshot.

It’s also strong at long range, but you’ll need to learn the bullet travel time and drop, as its velocity is lower than the others on this list. However, if you want a quick and powerful Sniper Rifle for any situation, you can’t go wrong with the Kar98k.

Best secondary weapons for Warzone sniping

MAC-10 – close range

If you like to get up-close and personal for your fights, the MAC-10 is the secondary weapon for you. Begin a fight with a well-placed headshot from the Kar98k or Tundra, then push up with your MAC-10 in hand for quick clean-up.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

FFAR 1 – medium range

The FFAR’s popularity has risen exponentially since the DMR was nerfed. With a rapid fire-rate and insanely fast time-to-kill, the FFAR has become the go-to weapon. It will fall short at long-range for its bounciness and high recoil but it will melt enemies at anything from close-medium.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 round fast mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Pair it with any of the snipers on this list and you’ll be carrying one of Warzone Season 1’s most popular loadouts.

M4A1 – all-rounder

Being a strong choice since Warzone’s launch in March 2020, the M4A1 is a great accompaniment for a sniper loadout. Offering more range than other secondaries, the M4 is an all-rounder capable of taking fights at any range.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Stock: FORGE TAC CQS
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

Best perks for Warzone sniping

Perk 1 – Double Time

Snipers need to be moving fast to get the drop on their enemies and to stay unpredictable.

Double Time allows you to Tactical Sprint for longer and increases your crouch-walk movement speed. This allows you to quickly maneuver between cover, and strafe shoot to be a hard target.

Perk 2 – Overkill then Ghost

Snipers need a strong secondary weapon, and the Overkill perk allows you to take two primary weapons into the game. From your first loadout, you can get everything you need for the game ahead.

Then from your next loadout, you should take the Ghost perk. Simply pick up the weapons from your first loadout, and you’ll be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

With two primary weapons in hand, you’ll need to quickly swap between them. Whether you’ve been ambushed, or you quickly need to follow up on a body-shot with your sniper, the Amped perk will make weapons swap instantly.

Pair these Sniper Rifles, secondary weapons, and perks and you’ll be able to dominate opponents at all ranges in CoD: Warzone.
