A Warzone 2 expert claims that they have found a “secret” loadout for the X12 pistol, which makes the weapon’s range and damage so good that it’s like a DMR.

Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded is coming to an end, and the season’s meta has been pretty stagnant as the RPK and Fennec have stood out among the rest.

Warzone 2 Season 2 will look to shake things up, as various balance changes and new weapons will spice up the meta and make things interesting. Despite the RPK and Fennec dominating, players still seem to find fun weapons and loadouts to use.

Popular Warzone 2 content creator Metaphor has built a “secret” DMR pistol loadout for the X12, which they say does “a lot of damage,” and is “really fun to use.”

So, if you’re looking for a unique and fun weapon to use in Warzone 2 before the big update, here’s Metaphor’s X12 DMR pistol loadout.

Metaphor’s Warzone 2 X12 DMR pistol loadout

  • Barrel: XRX Sidewinder-6 Slide
  • Trigger Action: XRX Sidewinder-6 Slide
  • Ammunition: 9mm Overpressured +P
  • Stock: XRX Pistol Stock
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro

The DMR was an extremely strong mid to long-range weapon in Warzone 1 that absolutely destroy players. It was eventually nerfed, but the player base’s memory of how strong the weapon was still lives on.

The most important attachments in this build are the XRX Sidewinder-6 Slide barrel, which boosts the weapon’s recoil control and bullet velocity, and the 9mm Overpressured +P ammunition, which causes the target to flinch.

These attachments, plus the added recoil control and accuracy from the XRX Pistol Stock and Cronen Mini Pro optic make Metaphor‘s DMR pistol loadout for Warzone 2’s X12.

Metaphor states that this X12 loadout “does a lot of damage if you’re hitting your shots,” but you definitely want to “stay mid-range with it,” as it isn’t very effective up-close.
