The Nikita AVT might be one of the best sniper support weapons in Warzone. The discovery comes from JGOD, an ultra-popular Call of Duty content creator. The Nikita AVT is nowhere near the top of the current meta right now, and according to WZranked, a popular website that allows players to access gun statistics and current meta classes, the gun currently has a pick rate of under one percent.

In his recent video, JGOD shows off the assault rifle's ability to kill enemies at close and medium ranges. JGOD also shows off the weapon's high TTK Rate.

Here's the loadout he provides:

Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
Barrel: Kovalevskaya 546MM Sr
Optic: Slate Reflector
Stock: ZAC Padded
Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
Ammunition: Hollow Point
Rear Grip: Taped Grip
Magazine: 6.5 Sakura 60 Rnd Drum
Perk 1: Brace
Perk 2: On-Hand

Since this is a setup for sniper support, the Nikita AVT excels in short to mid-range situations, but will not be effective in long-range scenarios. JGOD also mentions that current meta snipers are the Three Line Rifle and ZRG 20mm, which both have the potential to kill in one shot if players can hit a headshot.

Here's JGOD's ZRG 20mm loadout:

Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
Barrel: 43.9″ Combat Recon
Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
Magazine: 5 Rnd

Pairing the Nikita AVT with any of the current meta snipers will give players the ability to be lethal at any range when dropping into Caldera.
