Ranked as the worst weapon within Warzone, the Sidewinder’s pretty controllable recoil and fairly good damage can make the gun appealing for some players. So, here’s the best Sidewinder loadout for Warzone Season 1.

Warzone Season 1 is in full swing with players enjoying all the new content that arrived with the update. This includes a brand-new big map, several quality-of-life improvements, and a fresh arsenal.

When it comes to long ranges, Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles tend to be the favored choice, however, Battle Rifles can be a pretty underrated pick despite them also having great damage and low recoil.

Here’s the best Sidewinder loadout for Warzone Season 1, including attachments, Perks, and Equipment.
