Sniper rifles will always have their place in the Warzone meta, and some of the best weapons in the game come from this category. The game currently boasts 13 snipers, and they each offer something unique on the battlefield.

There are certainly some snipers considered to be the best in the game, and they include the HDR, AX-50, SP-R 208, and Kar98k. Many Warzone players also hold the opinion that the HDR is one of the best weapons in the game, as it is capable of downing fully armored enemies when shot in the head and has high bullet velocity. With the right sniper rifle loadout, players will have the upper hand when it comes to medium- and long-range encounters. Here are the three best sniper rifle loadouts in Warzone Season 2.

3 Best Sniper Rifle Loadouts in Warzone Season 2

HDR

A hard-hitting sniper rifle capable of taking down fully armored enemies via headshots. It is considered by many to be the best of its kind in the game.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 26.9" HDR Pro
  • Optic: Thermal Dual Power Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Stalker-Scout
  • Magazine: 9 Round Mags

AX-50

The AX-50, like the HDR, can eliminate fully armored enemies with a single shot. In comparison to the HDR, it has a faster fire rate, reload time, and aim down sights speed, but it suffers in the bullet velocity department.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: 32.0" Factory Barrel
  • Optic: Thermal Dual Power Scope
  • Stock: Singuard Arms Marksman
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Kar98k

The Kar98k can one-shot enemies at close or medium range but is not viable when it comes to long-range encounters. It is highly mobile and accurate but can be weak due to its damage drop off and low bullet velocity.

  • Muzzle: Compensator
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6"
  • Optic: 4.0 Flip Hybrid
  • Stock: STVOL Precision Comb
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape
