Black Ops Cold War has a great selection of sniper rifles. The M82 is a reliable machine that is capable of landing frequent headshots. It’s a beast of a weapon that you can make even better with some select attachments.
You can approach combat in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in different ways. Certain maps are made for close combat and high speed engagement, while others require a more patient approach. When it comes to the latter; you’ll most probably have to camp somewhere with a sniper rifle.
The M82 (Barret .50cal) is an excellent choice of weapon and is the last sniper rifle that you unlock in the game. It can dish out high damage and is absolutely lethal to anyone you catch in its sight. If you use it well then you can land some truly excellent headshots.
We’ve prepared this M82 loadout you can further improve the weapon.
Best M82 loadout for Black Ops Cold War
When you have this M82 equipped, your main strengths will be the damage and bullet velocity. The loadout is designed to work with these attributes while improving your rate of fire.
- Barrel: 22.6” Tiger Team
- Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip
- Magazine: 7 RND
- Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
- Stock: Raider Pad
We’ll start off with your movement speed. The Infiltrator Grip and Raider Pad will allow you to move and aim walk much quicker so that you can respond to nearby enemies. If someone is closing in on you then these two attachments will help you get out of there in time and respond fast.

Next we’ll focus on boosting the M82’s rate of fire with the 22.6” Tiger Team barrel. This will also buff your damage and bullet velocity but at the cost of decreased ammo capacity and starting ammo. The goal is to deal more damage with less shots and this barrel will accomplish just that.
The 7 RND mag will cover the cost of the barrel by providing a 40% increase in magazine size, max starting ammo and ammo capacity. You’ll also have slightly reduced reloading speed but this won’t matter as you’ll be able to fire more often.
We’ll cap this loadout off with the handle. The Airborne Elastic Wrap will reduce the time taken to ADS and provide you with 90% flinch resistance. Not to mention you will be able to better aim when you go prone.
If you want to cover your six during close combat then we recommend that you keep a few Stun Grenades on you. This will slow the enemy down so that you can take your shot with ease.
