How to make Warzone 2 Sniper Rifles one-shot kill in Season 6: Best loadouts
Sniper Rifles are the go-to choice in Warzone 2 for long-range engagements while maintaining some degree of stealth. And when equipped with the proper attachments, they have the potential to one-shot kill enemies. Here’s how to make a one-shot kill Sniper Rifle loadout in Warzone 2 Season 6.
Warzone 2 has an arsenal of weapons, ranging from versatile Assault Rifles for long ranges to SMGs for close-quarter domination. Additionally, Season 6 brought new weapons like the TR-76 Geist and ISO 9mm into the game, along with The Haunting limited-time event.
However, Sniper Rifles have the ability to inflict heavy damage with just a few shots and can possibly kill with one shot too. With most players sleeping on this class, you can take down enemies from extremely long ranges, while maintaining a safe distance from heavily contested areas.
With that said, here’s everything you need to know to make Sniper Rifles a one-shot kill in Warzone 2 Season 6, as well as the best loadouts to use.

How to make Sniper Rifles one-shot kill in Warzone 2
In order to gain the ability to one-shot enemies with a Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2, you’ll need to equip Explosive Ammunition to your weapon and land a headshot.
Back in the game’s Season 3, the devs explained: “After testing in our Saint Patrick’s Day Event, we are adding one-hit-down Snipers to create added variety in combat playstyles. Bolt-action snipers equipped with Explosive Ammunition will be able to down enemies with one skill shot.”
Explosive ammo gives each Sniper the damage buff required to rip through a fully-plated enemy and knock them with one headshot. However, it also comes with some drawbacks, including a loss of bullet velocity, which makes shots less precise over long distances.
Which Snipers can one-shot in Warzone 2?
Warzone 2 Sniper one-shot kill capabilities have only been granted to heavier bolt-action rifles. At the time of writing, four Sniper Rifles have Explosive Ammunition as an option: MCPR-300, Victus XMR, Signal 50, and FJX Imperium, also known as the Intervention.
