Warzone 2’s best Sniper support weapon will round out your Sniper Rifle loadout by providing versatility at close-range and medium-range across Al Mazrah and Ashika Island.

As players make their way across Al Mazrah and Ashika Island in Warzone 2, they’ll encounter different terrain that they must adapt to. Utilizing a Snipe Rifle is one way to cover your long-range engagements, and there’s nothing as satisfying as flexing your marksman skills with precise headshots, especially if it’s a one-shot kill.

The best Sniper support weapon is the perfect pair to your Warzone 2 Sniper Rifle, whether you prefer the Victus XMR, Signal 50, Intervention, or MCPR-300.

As for your bonus Perk, Fast Hands increases your reload speed, and Overkill will allow you to carry the Chimera loadout as your Sniper support.

The Smoke Grenade continues to be incredibly useful in Warzone 2, and we suggest that players continue to equip the Tactical Equipment for extra cover.
