The Warzone Pacific Season 3 update could very well nerf the Kar98k and Swiss K31 Sniper Rifles and one expert believes a forgotten weapon will be the next best option in the battle royale.

Warzone’s Sniper Rifle meta consists of two incredibly popular options as both the Kar98k and Swiss K31 have dominated for a long time. However, Raven have already teased that major Sniper nerfs will arrive with the Warzone Pacific Season 3 update.

Given that the devs mentioned a “weapon shift”, players are already speculating that the Kar98k and Swiss will get hit the hardest. The good news is there are plenty of excellent Snipers at your disposal and a Warzone expert has picked out the weapon that could rise to the top.

Both the Kar98k and the Swiss K31 are amongst the most popular Warzone weapons. Despite their popularity, a massive shift in the Sniper Rifle meta is exactly what players have been calling for as the two weapons are considered overpowered by many.

Call of Duty expert Metaphor believes that Cold War’s Tundra would benefit the most from a Kar98k and Swiss nerf. The content creator shows off some impressive gameplay in a video that proves the Tundra is ready to claim the title of Warzone’s best Sniper.

Metaphor’s LW3 Tundra Sniper Rifle Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel: 29.1″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

While we don’t have official confirmation of which Snipers will receive nerfs, Metaphor thinks that the Tundra could take over the meta, “There are massive sniper changes coming in season 3 that will drastically shift the meta, the Tundra is also being hurt by these changes however it will rise above other weapons when the time comes.”

Like most Sniper Rifle loadouts in Warzone, Metaphor chooses attachments that drastically boost the ADS speed and movement speed of the weapon. Whether you’re attempting longshots or quickscopes, having a fast ADS speed will maximize the Tundra’s potential.

Meanwhile the 29.1″ Combat Recon and Wrapped Suppressor attachments will provide improved aiming stability and bullet velocity. If you want to get ahead of the game, make sure Sniper Rifles like the Tundra are adequately leveled up before the nerfs arrive.
