Best sniper in Warzone is essential to making the best loadout in the new battle royale craze.

Call of Duty: Warzone, the new free-to-play battle royale, released March 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox one and PC. It's taken the gaming scene by storm garnering over 15 million players since launch. Players can customize special loadouts to be used in-game for an advantage against the enemy. These loadouts are just like classes in traditional Call of Duty multiplayer.

Best Sniper in Warzone: Sniper Rifle Tier List

Here's a tier list of the best sniper rifles to use in Warzone:

S Tier

  • HDR - This bolt-action sniper rifle is one of the best in the game. It goes hand-in-hand with the other sniper rifle in the S tier. The high damage makes it a force at range and important in mid-to-end game fights.
  • AX-50 - The AX-50 is the last sniper players unlock. Again, it's preference at this point if you prefer the HDR or AX-50. Both get the job done and are lethal at range. Slap a thermal scope on either and you'll be a thorn in the side of your enemies.

B Tier

  • Dragunov - Some might think that the semi-automatic sniper might benefit from its fire rate, but it pales in comparison to the bolt-actions. Such is life in past Call of Duty titles as well and it applies to the new battle royale. It's not terrible, but sway toward the AX-50 or HDR.

Honorable mentions go out to the marksman rifles as well. The Kar98k, EBR-14 and MK2 Carbine do damage with a long range scope. The former and latter are both found a bunch in supply crates so make use of them.
