Looking to switch up your Warzone loadout for maximum effect? Whether you’re paying in Solos, Squads, or Rumble, transforming your guns into an entirely new weapon can be just the injection of fun and fresh change your gunplay needs.

There are a few assault rifles that players are learning can be made into secret snipers, with the right attachments.

Sniper Setups Warzone
CR-56 Amax

CR-56 Amax Assault Rifle

Yes, the new CR-56 Amax assault rifle can be transformed into a sniper. GGRecon’s Galil attachments guide describes the Amax as having a relatively quick fire rate, high damage, and exquisite control, and thanks to several players and streamers, we now know how to put just the right attachments on the weapon to make it into a secret devastating semi-auto sniper rifle.

The headshot power of this secret sniper is undeniable and can produce one-tap takedowns at close range, and two-taps at medium. Practice makes perfect with this setup however, and you must be controlled and accurate.

Pros

  • The Amax sniper setup is perfect for long-range engagements and nails longshots.
  • High ground and peek spots can be used to your advantage.
  • Works well as an up-close weapon even with this setup.

Cons

  • You must perfect your timing to counter recoil.

Below are the attachments you should use in your Amax setup to transform the AR into a secret sniper.

Attachments

  • Sniper Scope Optic
  • XRK Zodiac S440 Barrel
  • XRK Gatekeeper Stock
  • Bipod Underbarrel
  • 10 Round Mag

The stability legs of the Bipod will give you more crouching and prone recoil control, while the XRK Zodiac barrel increases damage range. The 10-round magazine takes the damage stat through the roof. The combination of all of these attachments remodels this AR into a sniper in no time.

Oden

Oden

Another AR with similar capability is the Oden. As an AR, the Oden has the slowest fire rate of every gun in its class but makes up for this with raw power. Over long distances as an AR, the Oden gave off very little recoil, so slap some sniper attachments on the AR and it becomes a beast.

Below are the attachments you should use in your Oden setup to transform the AR into a secret sniper.

Attachments

  • Sniper Scope Optic
  • 810mm Barrel
  • Colossus Suppressor
  • Bipod Underbarrel
  • Granulated Grip Tape Rear Grip

Again, the Bipod legs provide stability, while the 810mm barrel increases bullet velocity and damage range. Paired with the colossus suppressor, which decreased overall sound of shots, and the granulated grip tape which gives you more aiming stability, the Oden can be lethal as an AR-turned-sniper.

M4A1

M4A1

The M4A1 assault rifle was GGRecon’s top choice in our Warzone loadout guide, so it comes as no surprise that the most reliable gun in the game can also emerge as a dependable sniper, too.

Below are the attachments you should use in your M4A1 setup to transform the AR into a secret sniper.

Attachments

  • Sniper Scope Optic
  • 10 Round Mag
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Bipod Underbarrel
  • M16 Grenadier Barrel

The only real change in this AR-to-sniper setup is the monolithic suppressor, which provides the best sound suppression, as well as increased damage range.
