Warzone 2 Operator with Sniper

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.

As players make their way across Al Mazrah 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.

While playing with a Warzone 2 Sniper Rifle is a ton of fun, it’s undoubtedly a one-dimensional weapon that allows a major weakness to surface. Of course, the lack of versatility at close-range and medium-range can be accounted for by utilizing a Sniper support weapon.

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

Warzone 2’s best Sniper support weapon

In Season 1 of Warzone 2, the M4 has established itself as the best Sniper support weapon in the game. Warzone 2 offers players plenty of options when it comes to Sniper support and picking just one is a tough task.

Warzone 2’s Assault Rifles are incredibly versatile so don’t be surprised to see the top spot shift with the next major update. The Kastov-74u, STB 556, and Vaznev-9k are all in the running for Warzone 2’s best Sniper support weapon.

M4 Assault Rifle in Warzone 2

Warzone 2 M4 Sniper support loadout attachments

  • Barrel: Hightower 20″ Barrel
  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

The Hightower 20″ Barrel is the standard long barrel that’s ideal for Warzone 2 gameplay. The attachment will increase bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil control, making it easier to hit distant targets. Meanwhile, the Harbinger D20 will further boost the above attributes.

The M4’s standard mobility is well above average, which means we can focus on accuracy-boosting attachments. Even with the Phase-3 Grip stabilizing the weapon, you’ll still be able to snap onto close-range enemies.

The 45 Round Mag is another must-have Warzone 2 attachment as you look to take on waves of enemies. With the 5.56 High Velocity ammunition, your bullets will feel deadlier than ever thanks to the increased velocity. You’ll want to tune most of these attachments all the way up and to the right.

Best Warzone 2 Sniper support loadout Perk Package

  • Perk Package: Weapon Specialist (Overkill, Strong Arm, Spotter, Survivor)
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade

Given the introduction of Perk Packages in Warzone 2, players are restricted to the Weapon Specialist option when it comes to a Sniper support loadout. Weapon Specialist is the only Perk Package with Overkill, which is essential for this loadout.

The Flash Grenade continues to be incredibly powerful in Warzone 2, and until it receives a nerf we suggest that players continue to equip the Tactical Equipment.

Given that the M4 is going to be your weapon of choice for close combat engagements, the Throwing Knife will help you confirm kills and preserve ammunition as you won’t want to switch to your Sniper Rifle.
