Warzone Caldera Armaguerra

Here’s the best Sniper support weapon in Warzone to ensure that you’re ready for every type of gunfight across Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep.

Using a Sniper Rifle in Warzone can be an incredibly effective playstyle to rack up kills from a distance. While the focus with a Sniper is to keep your distance and utilize your weapon’s long-range capability, you don’t always have a choice of gunfight type when it comes to Warzone.

If players look to advance on your position, or if you need to rotate around the map, you’ll need a Sniper support weapon to increase your versatility. Sniper support weapons are known for their well-balanced damage range as they’re meant to excel from close-range to medium-range.

Whether you’re using the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle that has shot up the ranks in Season 5, the tried and true HDR, or the 3-Line Rifle, here’s the best Sniper support you can use in Warzone.

Warzone’s best Sniper support weapon

There are several fantastic options when it comes to Sniper support weapons like the Marco 5, Volk, and Cooper Carbine, but thanks to its incredible mobility, impressive TTK, and excellent range, the Armaguerra 43 outranks them all.

The Armaguerra has been a top Warzone SMG for a few seasons now and despite recent nerfs in Season 5, it remains one of the best in the game.

Warzone Armaguerra 43 Sniper support loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Imerito 550mm 03P
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito SA Folding
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 55 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Hardscope
  • Perk 2: Quick

The Armaguerra’s mobility and strafe speed took a hit due to nerfs but the Imerito SA Folding Stock, Taped Grip, and Quick offer an excellent boost to the weapon’s speed.

If you haven’t noticed yet from the attachments above, increasing the Armaguerra’s accuracy and recoil is vital when using it as a Sniper support weapon. Thanks to Hardscope, the Imerito 550mm 03P Barrel, and the M1941 Hand Stop, you can confidently engage in gunfights outside of the traditional close-range SMG sweep spot.

The Slate Reflector offers a clean sight that will help with hitting distant targets, while the 9mm 55 Round Mags will ensure you have enough bullets to down and kill enemies seeing as your other weapon is a Sniper.

Best Warzone Sniper support loadout Perks

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped

When utilizing a Sniper support loadout, you’ll have no choice but to use the Overkill Perk from the get-go. It’s imperative that you get your desired Sniper and support weapon paired with your first loadout. You’ll be free to pick up Ghost or any other Perk 2 with your next loadout.

Amped will be a vital asset in the Perk 3 slot as you’ll constantly be switching from your Sniper to your Sniper support weapon depending on the circumstances.

Meanwhile, Double Time should prove valuable as your Perk 1. Sniper gameplay requires a decent amount of rotating around the map, and doing it as fast as possible thanks to Double Time could be a lifesaver.
