Best Warzone 2 SP-R 208 loadout attachments
- Barrel: 23.5″ Fluted R-67
- Optic: Luca Bandera Scope
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
- Comb: Aim-Assist 406
- Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension
The SP-R 208 is one of Modern Warfare 2’s most popular weapons and it has the opportunity to play a similar role in Warzone 2. The Marksman Rifle appeals to players who enjoy the quickscoping as the weapon’s excellent mobility makes it shine.
In Warzone 2 you’ll want to pick attachments that continue to highlight the weapon’s mobility and ADS speed, while also boosting its range to fit Al Mazrah. Therefore the 23.5″ Fluted R-67 Barrel is recommended despite the fact that it lowers ADS speed.
Next, the FSS ST87 Bolt will speed up your rechambering speed, which is a great asset for a Marksman Rifle. The Aim-Assist 406 Comb and ZRL T70 Pad Extension Stock will provide a major boost to mobility by increasing sprint speed, sprint-to-fire speed, and ADS speed.
While there are several decent options when it comes to the SP-R 208’s Optic, it’s difficult to predict what the Warzone 2 meta will be at the moment. However, we’ve highlighted the Luca Bandera Scope as a great place to start.
Best Warzone 2 SP-R 208 loadout Perk Package & Equipment
- Perk Package: Weapon Specialist (Overkill, Strong Arm, Spotter, and Survivor)
- Tactical Equipment: Semtex
- Lethal Equipment: Shock Stick
Thanks to the Weapon Specialist Perk Package, Overkill will allow you to pair the SP-R 208 with another Primary weapon. While it’s common to pair a Sniper with an SMG, we suggest a Sniper support Assault Rifle instead. The SP-R 208 isn’t all that versatile, so utilizing a weapon like the M4 that excels in all situations is highly recommended.
Strong Arm will allow you to maximize your distance when chucking Equipment around Al Mazrah, while Spotter will allow you to track enemy footsteps and surprise some unsuspecting foes. Meanwhile, when enemy players down you, Survivor will activate and ping their location for your allies.
The Semtex will allow you to make the most of Strong Arm, as you look to clear out tight spaces. The new Shock Stick will immobilize enemies for a brief moment allowing you to scope in and hit them in the head with your SP-R 208.

Best alternatives to the SP-R 208 in Warzone 2
Given its impressive damage range, the Signal 50 Sniper Rifle should excel in Warzone 2 as a heavy Sniper alternative to light weapons like the SP-R 208.
If you prefer light Snipers then the SP-X 80 could be the ideal alternative for you. Don’t forget that the Victus XMR Sniper Rifle will be available in the Warzone 2 Season 1 Battle Pass, so maybe the new weapon will take over the early Sniper meta.
