Warzone 2 players using Sniper Rifles should keep a Sniper support gun for close-range encounters, and Warzone 2 expert Luke ‘Metaphor’ Canning has revealed the best one that you can use in Season 1 Reloaded.

If you prefer to pick off your enemies from a distance then Warzone 2 has a plethora of long-range weapon options for you to choose from, including numerous powerful LMGs and Sniper Rifles.

It’s best to pair these with close-range SMGs in case you run into trouble with enemies up close, and Warzone 2 guru Metaphor has showcased an extremely viable Sniper support option.

According to Metaphor, the Fennec 45 is the best Sniper support weapon that you can use in Al Mazrah because of its fire fate which allows it to take out enemies extremely fast in close-range battles.

Metaphor explained: “If I can headshot somebody and swap to this gun, it’s super quick and I just need to get one bullet to finish them off.” He described the Warzone 2 weapon as “insane” and called it an “absolute beast” in close-quarters combat during Season 1 Reloaded.

Metaphor’s Warzone 2 Fennec 45 loadout

  • Rear Grip: Fennec Stippled Grip
  • Optic: DF105 Reflex Sight
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: Agile Assault-7 Stock
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45

Metaphor’s Fennec 45 loadout focuses on “max speed.” The VLK LZR 7MW laser buffs both the ADS speed and sprint-to-fire speed of the SMG, and the Fennec Mag 45 will let you enjoy its high rate of fire.

He used the Fennec 45 alongside the SP-X 80 Sniper Rifle and was able to secure plenty of quick kills. Be sure to give this powerful SMG a try the next time you need a solid sniper support option in Warzone 2.
