Warzone Sniper Rifle Tier List July 2021

1. S Tier

The Kar98k and Swiss K31 remain at the front of the pack as they are the most likely to allow aggressive players to take over a lobby. From their excellent effective damage ranges to their quick rechamber speeds and light mobility, these snipers would allow any nimble player to rack up headshot feeds in style. Meanwhile, the HDR remains the best option for those who prefer to bunker down and pick off foes from limitless range.

2. A Tier

  • ZRG 20mm
  • SP-R 208
  • LW3 - Tundra

This trio of options groups nicely together in A Tier as although they are viable options, it feels like most players would abandon ship for any of their S Tier counterparts mentioned earlier. While the ZRG 20mm is a bit on the slower side thanks to it having a higher bullet velocity and less bullet drop, the SP-R 208 and LW3 - Tundra are more balanced in their strengths and weakness.

3. B Tier

In B Tier, the Pelington 703 and AX-50 stay lower down in the list as other snipers have entered the game and excelled. Nonetheless, longtime players know exactly what these rifles are capable of, and it makes sense to see them still dropping in loadouts.

4. C Tier

As it goes with semi-automatic snipers in Call of Duty, it should be no surprise that these three rifles all remain at the bottom of the list. While the M82 was the most recent of the trio to receive a buff, it's clear Raven Software still has work to do if they want to bring these snipers into the fold.
