Sniper rifles haven’t been deadly enough for most of the Call of Duty: Warzone 2, and it was one of the largest complaints for players of the battle royale. In Season 3, one-shot snipers have returned to the game, but it won’t be a universal change for every weapon in the class.
There are some very specific attachments and requirements for a one-shot sniper to be that deadly. First, the weapon needs to be a bolt-action rifle. Second, the weapon needs to have Explosive Ammunition equipped for enough damage. Below, we’ll outline a full loadout that you can take into Warzone 2 for some easy eliminations.
Best One-Shot Sniper Rifle Loadout Warzone 2
- Sniper: MCPR-300
- Muzzle: Nilsound 90
- Barrel: 22″ OMX-456
- Ammunition: Explosive
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
- Optic: SP-X 80 6.6x
Most of the attachments listed are mandatory for the best build possible. Having the bolt-action with Explosive Ammunition is required for maximum damage. Utilizing damage range attachments also can’t really be skipped. But you can at least change the optic you’d like to use based on your preference and how well you can hit your shots with the sight.
Variable zoom scopes offer the most versatility in the Warzone, so keep that in mind. However, it always comes down to which scope you’re going to hit your shots with most consistently, and I personally like to use the SP-X 80 6.6x.

Most of the snipers in the game already had access to Explosive Ammunition, but now the MCPR-300 was added to the list as well. With the speed and the power that it has, we want to focus on this rifle as our base for the best loadout possible in the battle royale. The Victus XMR comes close but simply has too much weight to justify using it
