One-shot snipers are back in Warzone 2, and as a result, the community is constantly on the lookout for the strongest long-range rifle loadout. As the majority of sniper builds strictly focus on damage output, they often lack mobility and feel sluggish when manoeuvring around the map.

Well, James "JGOD" Godoy has solved this by creating the ultimate 'one-shot quick scoping' sniper for competitors who prefer to play aggressively with a rifle and flex their skills as a sharpshooter.

The setup significantly improves ADS time, making it easy to lock onto foes and wipe them out in an instant.

When it comes to designing the perfect quick-scoping sniper in Warzone 2 that can also one-shot enemies, JGOD has picked the FJX Imperium and focused on maximizing bullet velocity and massively improving ADS time.


  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Ammunition: .300 Mag Explosive
  • Magazine: 5-Round Mag
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4

All of the attachments above transform the FJX Imperium into a deadly quick-scoping rifle that's top-tier in Warzone 2, as long as you can land your initial shot.

When taking on enemies equipped with ARs and SMGs, the one-shot potential of this gun means you can win skirmishes instantly if you're accurate, but a misplaced bullet will often result in your death.

Luckily, the Forge Tac Delta 4 optic is extremely easy to use and has little to 'no glint' when aiming down sight. This means when you're taking out an enemy at long range, you're unlikely to give away your position.

When it comes to picking a secondary to run alongside JGOD's sniper build, we first recommend you equip the Overkill perk. This will give you access to a second primary and allow you to run a meta SMG.

In the current meta, there's no better choice than the Vaznev-9k, which has a combination of brilliant mobility and an unmatched TTK for close-quarter skirmishes.

With the FJX Imperium and Vaznev-9k equipped, you'll be a force to be reckoned with in Warzone 2, no matter what game mode you're playing.
