Our Warzone sniper rifle tier list for June 2021 is here to breakdown the best weapons to use in Call of Duty's hit battle royale and keep players up to speed with the latest meta.

With one of the more major recent updates, Raven Software changed quite a bit with the Black Ops Cold War optics, so how do weapons in the class now stack up? Here are the best sniper rifles to use in Call of Duty: Warzone in June 2021.

Warzone Sniper Rifle Tier List June 2021

S Tier

Likely a surprise to very few, these three options are the most likely to fit the needs of any sharpshooter in Verdansk, especially those who are more aggressive in taking fights. 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. Keep in mind that the Pelington 703 and Swiss K31 might take a bit more time for some to get used to as the Black Ops Cold War weapon animations are a bit stiff.

A Tier

The three of these options group nicely together as while they are viable options, it feels like most players would abandon ship for the stronger, easier to handle S tier counterparts mentioned earlier. While the ZRG 20mm is a bit of the slower side thanks to it having a higher bullet velocity and less bullet drop, the LW3 - Tundra and SP-R 208 are more balanced with their strengths and weakness.

B Tier

  • AX-50
  • HDR

Two snipers that were once the kings of Warzone early on in their lifespan, the AX-50 and HDR have fallen behind in the pack as newer snipers were added to the mix. Nonetheless, longtime players know exactly what these options are capable of, and it shouldn't be a surprise to see them still dropping in loadouts.

C Tier

  • Rytec AMR
  • M82
  • Dragunov

Three snipers that are all semi-automatic, it's quite unfortunate that they all find themselves at the bottom of the list. Both the Rytec AMR and the M82 are technically more viable than the Dragunov, but all three leave a lot to be desired with their damage outputs and are tough to recommend regardless of the scenario.
