Content creator Metaphor recently posted a new YouTube video revealing what he thinks is a scary option to use at the moment in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.

As most longtime Warzone players can likely attest, the DMR 14 tactical rifle in its heyday was perhaps the most overpowered weapon ever seen in the game's history. The DMR 14 tactical rifle was so overpowered throughout the entirety of the Black Ops Cold War era's Season 1 that players in the community started calling the game DMRzone. Even with full plates, the DMR 14 was a two-shot kill to the head, and a one-shot kill to the head with stopping power rounds. If you weren't using a DMR 14, you pretty much stood no chance in-game at the time.

Breaking it all down in a recent YouTube video eloquently titled, "the DMR 2.0 is HERE, BEST EBR-14 CLASS SETUP in WARZONE 2," Metaphor showcased how this marksman rifle build is perhaps one that all players should be giving a try in Season 1 Reloaded.

"This thing is kinda crazy if you're hitting shots with it," Metaphor said in the video. "It's basically like the DMR meta is finally back and, I'm gonna be honest, I'm kinda scared. I'm kinda scared because this thing has the potential to two-shot if you get headshots and in general, it's just really, really insane damage output on this weapon.

"Now I'm not gonna lie, this thing really sucks at long range, but at close range and mid range, it's insane."

Here is Metaphor's sniper support Fennec 45 build with the attachments and tuning listed below:

  • Muzzle: ZLR Talon 5 (+1.40 oz, +1.00 in)
  • Barrel: 22" Boremaster Barrel (+0.29 lb, +0.35 in)
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity (-0.68 g, -9.00 gr)
  • Optic: VLK 4.0 Optic (-3.00 oz, -1.35 in)
  • Stock: SO-90 Factory Stock (-4.00 oz, +2.40 in)

Ultimately, as explained by Metaphor, this build maximizes the bullet velocity, range and recoil control of the EMR-14, but it does appear that the last thing this needs to truly complete with the OG DMR 14 is more stopping power at longer ranges.
