Warzone expert Isaac ‘IceManIsaac’ Hamilton has revealed which Sniper Rifle is now capable of one-shotting enemies to the chest after the developers reverted its nerfs.
When you hop into a game of Warzone Pacific, you’ll face tough competition from opposing players and will need to select the best weapon loadouts for different combat situations in order to come out on top.
If you prefer to pick off your enemies from a distance then Sniper Rifles are the best choice, and Call of Duty expert IceManIsaac has showcased an extremely broken one that can instantly take out enemies in Season 4 Reloaded.
The Type 99 Sniper Rifle previously received a massive nerf in Warzone Pacific Season 3 and this was meant to prevent players from securing one-shot kills outside of the weapon’s max damage range.
However, this nerf was reverted in the July 28 update which increased the maximum damage range to 50 meters, up from 37 Meters. As a result, the weapon is able to eliminate enemies extremely quickly.
IceManIsaac described the weapon as “jarring and super satisfying to use.” You can use it to take out your opponents instantly with a single shot to the chest. The Warzone expert then revealed his loadout for the powerful Sniper Rifle.
IceManIsaac’s Type 99 Loadout
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Shiraishi 712mm Sniper
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x / ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope
- Stock: Removed Stock
- Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
- Magazine: 8mm Klauser 5 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Perk 1: Vital
- Perk 2: On-Hand
IceManIsaac uses many of the same attachments as the best Type 99 Warzone loadout, but he went with the Taped Grip for the faster weapon swap speed that it provides. Even if you hit a shoulder shot, you can switch to an SMG quickly to finish off your opponent.
The SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic is an ideal choice for Caldera but its biggest drawback is the glint that enemies can spot, giving away your position and putting you at a disadvantage. If you want to avoid the glint, you can try out the ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope instead
The Vital perk is a key part of this loadout as it increases the size of the critical-hit area on enemies. Finally, the Removed Stock and the SMLE Pistol Grip let you aim down sights faster.
