Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah has received a St. Patrick’s overhaul to celebrate the holiday and along with the water turning green, players finally have access to a one-shot Sniper Rifle. Here’s how to get the one-shot Shillelagh Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2.

Sniping was one of the most powerful playstyles throughout the entirety of Warzone 1 and the devs knew it, removing the one-shot headshot capability from Marksman Rifles. However, in Warzone 2, Infinity Ward made the controversial decision to completely remove the one-shot headshot ability from snipers, even taking it away when it accidentally arrived.

The devs teased that one-shot Sniper Rifles would finally arrive in Season 2 Reloaded, but with a major catch. In a creator call ahead of Season 2, the devs confirmed that a one-shot sniper would only arrive through a specific game mode.

With Season 2 Reloaded and the St. Patrick’s day event now here, the devs have hidden the highly requested one-shot Sniper Rifle in a fabled location. Here’s how to get the secret one-shot Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded.

There’s finally a one-shot Sniper Rifle as part of the St. Patrick’s Day event!

How to get Shillelagh one-shot Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2

Warzone 2’s one-shot Sniper Rifle can be found at the end of the rainbow on either Al Mazrah or Ashika Island. The waters of Al Mazrah have turned green and there are rainbows streaking across both maps, so find the end of the rainbow for some highly sought-after treasure.

No matter if its battle royale or DMZ, heading to the end of the rainbow in either Warzone 2 map will reward you with several gold chests full of high-tier loot, and the Shillelagh one-shot Sniper Rifle will be one of the rewards.

This green and gold St. Patrick’s Day-themed Victus XMR Blueprint is capable of one-shotting fully armored players with a headshot and it’s so powerful that body shots have a high chance of downing them as well.

This one-shot Sniper Rifle will only be available in that match, and you don’t get to keep the base Victus XMR Blueprint. While it may dominate long-range fights over the weekend, it’s likely to be removed when the event ends next week.

Expect the end of the rainbow to be extremely busy as players fight it out to get their hands on the deadly Shillelagh one-shot Sniper Rifle, but if you do, you’ll come away with one of the game’s most deadly weapons.
