Warzone expert reveals buffed Sniper Rifle will take over Season 4 meta
Isaac Hamilton a.k.a. IceManIsaac is a deadly Warzone expert with a Sniper Rifle in hand. Following the Season 4 update, the content creator has revealed which Sniper will take over the Warzone meta.
Certain Warzone Snipers were completely overhauled in Season 3 as the devs removed the ability to one-shot kill players with a shot to the head. These adjustments have not gone down well with players, and many are now hoping that the changes will be reverted in Season 4.
Luckily, IceManIsaac is around to prove that there’s still a way to find success with a Sniper in Warzone. With several popular Snipers falling to the wayside, the expert showcases which Sniper you need to be using in Season 4.
Since the Warzone Season 3 update, the HDR and AX-50 have been the two most popular Sniper Rifles in the game due to the fact that they maintained their ability to one-shot kill players at any range.
However, these two weren’t the only weapons to maintain this ability and IceManIsaac proves that most players have been overlooking Vanguard’s 3-Line Rifle as a top Sniper option. Not only did the weapon maintain its ability to one-shot players, but it also received a significant buff to its ADS speed in Season 4.

IceManIsaac points out that with a mediocre ADS speed no longer holding the 3-Line Rifle back, it’s primed to take over Warzone Season 4: “You have one-shot headshot kill at all ranges, it has a great ADS, it doesn’t have a terrible flinch that Snipers are notorious for, and on top of that it doesn’t have that horrible weapon sway.”
The Empress 514mm F01 barrel was one of the buffed attachments that now offers added ADS speed. Meanwhile, IceManIsaac highly suggests using the ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope as it eliminates glint from the weapon and still provides ample magnification for long-range kills.
The Silent Focus Perk 2 is the key to eliminating that annoying bounce and sway that comes with using a Sniper Rifle. Most of the remaining attachments focus on boosting the weapon’s movement and ADS speed.
Although there aren’t many viable Snipers to use in Warzone, IceManIsaac proclaims that “Snipers are back.” He explains that this 3-Line Rifle loadout will dominate on Rebirth Island, Fortune’s Keep, and Caldera, which makes it hard to ignore.
