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

As most Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 players are likely well aware, the Fennec 45 has already been well-regarded as one of, if not the best SMG for battle royale.

Breaking it all down in a recent YouTube video eloquently titled, "my FENNEC 45 is the BEST SNIPER SUPPORT in WARZONE 2," however, Metaphor showcased how this sniper support build is perhaps one that all players should be giving a try in Season 1 Reloaded.

As explained by Metaphor, who seemingly dropped back-to-back 30 bombs with the gun, the Fennec 45 could be the answer to those displeased with the way sniping has been in Warzone 2 so far.

"The whole reason why this gun is so great for sniper support," Metaphor said in the video, "is because if you headshot somebody, they're at 1 hp. Now if you pull out the gun with the fastest fire rate in the game, all you have to do is land one bullet on them and they die.

"So this gun is pretty much built for max speed, not a lot of range, but it still makes for a great sniper support in the sense that you're just trying to hit one bullet. But if you do get into a close-range encounter with somebody, you're going to have an absolute powerhouse of a weapon."

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

  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45
  • Optic: DF105 Reflex Sight (-3.00 oz, +3.00 in)
  • Rear Grip: Fennec Stippled Grip (-1.00 oz, -0.45 in)
  • Stock: Agile Assault-7 Stock (-3.35 oz, -1.32 in)

Ultimately, for those struggling to down enemies while sniping due to the lack of ability to one-shot, it appears this Fennec 45 strat might be the way to go. Alternatively, you could try to run the semi-auto Signal 50, which has the ability to get two shots off fairly easily in quick succession. Metaphor was running this setup with the SP-X 80, which is one of the best bolt-action snipers in the game at the moment.
