So, you've been dropping into Call of Duty: Warzone and heading for those towers, but maybe you keep losing the firefight to other snipers? Or perhaps you're getting jumped by CQB teams? Don't worry, we've got you - here is the best Sniper Loadout in Warzone! With this bad-boy, you'll be clicking heads in no time!

For this guide, we are going to focus on a pure sniper build, something that you can use to hold those high-points either in solos or teams. If you're going to play with teammates, though, we suggest that you all take a sniper loadout. Getting shots on the same target will down anyone in Warzone if you're both equipped with snipers, but if one of you is still rocking the M4, then you're only going to draw attention to yourselves!


Best Warzone Sniper Loadout: Which Sniper Rifle Is Best in Warzone? 

The best Sniper Rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone is the Kar98k. There are good arguments to be made for something more powerful, like an AX-50, but the Kar98k can still drop someone with a single round if you land those headshots. The Kar98k's biggest advantage is its mobility. As the most mobile sniper rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone (technically a marksman rifle), you'll be giving yourself a huge advantage by moving and responding more quickly than your enemies. Here are the attachments that you'll want:

  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

Best Warzone Sniper Loadout: What Secondary Weapon Is Best For A Sniper? 

The best secondary weapon for a sniper is the MP7, which is back on top as the CQB king after recent MAC-10 nerfs. That answer also reveals one of the perks that you'll be taking: Overkill. For a dedicated sniper though, it's an absolute must – you need something reliable to switch out to when hell breaks loose, and the MP7 is best secondary weapon for this task. This weapon has always been dominant in Warzone, but particularly for those close-range reactive situations, where speed is everything, you can rely on an MP7. These are the attachments you'll want for the setup:

Best Warzone Sniper Loadout: What Perks Should A Sniper Take? 

For the ultimate Sniper loadout, you should take the Cold-Blooded, Overkill and Amped perks. Overkill and Amped are the perfect combination – if you're going to take two primary weapons, then give yourself the advantage of rapid switch outs. This is especially important for snipers in Call of Duty: Warzone; when the door to the roof bursts open behind you, you need to respond instantly. 

Best Warzone Sniper Loadout: What Equipment Should A Sniper Take? 

As every self-respecting sniper knows: Claymores are your friend, and a Heartbeat Sensor is the cherry on top. For obvious reasons, you should take Claymores – these puppies will down anyone without E.O.D. that tries to pull a sneaky on you. The Heartbeat Sensor has become meta for every build in Warzone, and for good reason. The Heartbeat Sensor will simply provide you with more than any other tactical; it can help when you think people are approaching, it can help when you're checking for free snipe spots, and in the end-game? It's just essential.
