After a long wait, Warzone Season 2 finally brought a new one-shot Sniper to the game following a major buff, and CoD expert Metaphor has shared his best loadout for dominating long ranges in Urzikstan and Fortune’s Keep.

Warzone Season 2 launched on February 7 bringing plenty of new content to the game for players to dive into, including new weapons such as the RAM-9 and BP50, the first-ever Ranked mode for Resurgence, Fortune’s Keep’s return, and more.

Additionally, the latest update also carried major weapon buffs and nerfs aiming to shift the game’s meta. Notably, one particular change has captured the players’ interest: the XRK Stalker is now included among Sniper Rifles with the ability to achieve one-shot kills without the need for explosive rounds.

Now, Warzone expert Metaphor shared his best loadout to make use of the change, designed to noticeably improve movement while maintaining high damage output.

Metaphor’s best one-shot XRK Stalker loadout for Warzone

  • Laser: SL Razorhawk Laser Light
  • Barrel: Fission 60 Barrel
  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor XL
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal High Grain Rounds
  • Stock: No Stock

To kick off Metaphor’s best one-shot XRK Stalker loadout in Warzone, he picked the Sonic Suppressor XL Muzzle, which is crucial in improving the Sniper’s maximum damage range from 50.8m to 75.2m. Also, it will grant extra bullet velocity and keep you off enemies’ radars.

Then, he chose the Fission 60 Barrel and .50 Cal High Grain Rounds Ammunition combination to further improve the bullet velocity and range, aiming idle sway, and aim stability.

Lastly, he selected the SL Razorhawk Laser Light to enhance the sprint-to-fire and ADS speeds, alongside the No Stock option to boost the movement speed, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speeds, offering great mobility and reaction time, which are essential for Sniper Rifles.

With improved maximum range and mobility, this class will allow you to kill enemies from afar easily. Compared to its counterpart, the KATT-AMR, the XRK Stalker boats better overall stats, resembling the feel of the fan-favorite Kar98k from Warzone 1.
