A new era of sniping is upon us, and this year’s collection of long-range weapons will be crucial for your success in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 alike. With the beta, we are able to judge the best Modern Warfare 2 snipers list that will both help navigate your way through the multiplayer maps and figure out which will be best to pour your time into levelling up for when the battle royale rolls out later this year. So, based on our early playing time, here’s all you need to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 snipers list.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Snipers

3 - LM-S

We’re not blessed with many guns to choose from for the best Modern Warfare 2 snipers list at this stage of the game, given that there is actually only one in the category. However, we’re quite accustomed to seeing marksman rifles sneak into the sniping category thanks to the reign of the Kar98k. Unfortunately, the LM-S isn’t quite what you want from a sniper, and is more of a DMR-esque gun that relies on players reining unfavourable in the “duff-duff” accuracy. If you can find the right attachments though you can find success in the LM-S, but not as a one-shot-kill sniper.

2 - Lockwood MK2

Here is where the best Modern Warfare 2 snipers list begins to take shape, as it becomes a straight toss-up between the Lockwood MK2 from the marksmen rifle category and the Signal 50. The MK2 provides everything that you’d expect from a mid-western saloon gun, with its polished wood providing a powerful slinging slug shot that will be fatal. However, it’s not quite blessed with the same high-tempo qualities that were needed in prevalent in the Kar98k and its chamber is quite slim.

Topping off the best Modern Warfare 2 snipers list is the Signal 50. The lone sniper is not to be discarded. It might be a bit lonely on its perch, but this doesn’t make it any worse, as the Signal 50 is a great sniper. With .50 Cal rounds, you’ll be devastating to any area of the enemies’ body, and it’s more than steady to wield. Smells quite like a Barratt .50 Cal to us…

Undoubtedly, the best Modern Warfare 2 snipers list could do with some more competition, with maybe a less-versatile and harder-hitting gun necessary for Warzone 2, while the marksmen rifles might only need tweaking slightly to become meta picks.
