With Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded in full effect, Call of Duty expert Metaphor has highlighted a powerful Sniper Rifle build that’s a perfect replacement for the St. Patrick’s one-shot rifle.

The Season 2 Reloaded update brought major changes that had a significant impact on the Warzone 2 meta, including the arrival of the Tempus Torrent Marksman Rifle along with multiple weapon buffs and nerfs.

Players were disappointed when the St. Patrick’s Day one-shot Sniper Rifle was removed, but Warzone 2 expert Metaphor has showcased a Sniper Rifle build that’s an ideal replacement for it.

Metaphor praised the capabilities of the SP-X 80 Sniper Rifle. He explained: “It’s a consistent two-shot kill. If you headshot people that have less than full HP, they will die from pretty much any range.”

He then revealed the attachments he used to create his build which he describes as “superior to anything else” that you can use for the SP-X 80. Despite its low pick rate of 0.9% on WZRanked, it’s an extremely deadly weapon.

Metaphor’s Warzone 2 SP-X 80 loadout

  • Barrel: 22.5″ Elevate-11
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Stock: Max DMR Precision
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
  • Ammunition: .300 High Velocity 

This loadout starts off by equipping the 22.5″ Elevate-11 barrel, FSS OLE-V Laser, and Max DMR Precision stock to improve the ADS speed, movement speed, aiming stability, and recoil control of the SP-X 80 Sniper Rifle.

The Schlager Match Grip provides an additional buff to the ADS speed while also improving the sprint-to-fire time. Finally, the .300 High Velocity ammunition buffs the bullet velocity so that you can shred through enemies.

WhosImmortal’s build for the SP-X 80 is “faster than a normal build,” and you can use it to cause serious havoc when playing Warzone 2. Be sure to try it out as you battle enemies in Season 2 Reloaded.
