The Best Sniper Rifle In Warzone 2.0

To make the most of the new battle pass, it's vital to have a strong weapon loadout. The weapon selection in "Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0" is vast, to say the least. There are plenty of ways players can choose to pose a threat to their enemies, be it through handguns, assault rifles, submachine guns, LMGs, and sniper rifles, among other categories. Any and all of these classes have their gems. But players will have some decisions to make concerning sniper rifles.

When it comes to sniper rifles in "Warzone 2.0," players will have five to choose from, not including marksman rifles. These rifles include the MCPR-300, LA-B 330, SP-X 80, Victus XMR, and the Signal 50. All of these weapons have their respective strengths and weaknesses. However, which one of them gives players the ultimate advantage over their enemies and is most formidable in a gameplay setting? Here is the sniper rifle that stands head and shoulders above every other weapon in its class that players can choose in "Warzone 2.0," as well as a handy loadout that can put it over the top.

The Victus XMR stands above the competition

According to Hayden Hefford of Rock Paper Shotgun, the best sniper rifle players can choose from when playing "Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0" is the Victus XMR. The website also lists the sniper rifle as among the best guns in "Warzone 2.0" independent of class. The accuracy can't be beat, and no other sniper rifle can match its damage range. For gamers who prefer to keep their distance, it's perfect for sniping enemies with only a shot or two (via Rock Paper Shotgun). According to Wanzi Koh of One Esports, the Victus XMR can even take down opponents with one well-placed shot should you have the right loadout for it. This loadout consists of the Victus XMR with the Mack 8 33.5 Super on the barrel, a VLK LZR 7MW laser, .50 caliber explosive caliber, XRK Rise 50 stock, and an SP-X 80 6.6X for the optic.

With this loadout, the Victus XMR is every bit as versatile as it is effective. "This build makes for a decent quickscoping loadout, with the added benefit of one-shot potential to the head," Koh notes of the loadout. "It combines monstrous stopping power with good mobility, so you should have a fairly versatile setup in your hands. And if you want even faster ADS speed, you can swap out the SPX-X 80 6.6X optic for the Bruen Q900 Grip, and stick to the default 8X scope."
