The Warzone best snipers are without a doubt one of the greatest assets to your Caldera killing spree, and will help you become a sharpshooter like you never knew you could be. Interestingly, the sniper meta has changed along with Warzone's integration with Vanguard, so you've got a lot more to consider now that Caldera is here with Warzone Pacific.

But what exactly are the game's best snipers, and what are their loadouts? Here's our guide to Warzone's best snipers, and exactly how to use them.

Warzone Best Sniper: Loadout Perks 

Before we get into our list of our Warzone best snipers, it's important to know that a keen shot can only get you so far; you'll need to know which secondary guns work best, and how to optimise your perks to capitalise on the advantage gained by harnessing your inner Deadshot.

  • Secondary - SMG 
  • Perk 1 - EOD
  • Perk 2 - Ghost / High Alert
  • Perk 3 - Amped
  • Lethal - Semtex
  • Equipment - Stun Grenade

An SMG always goes well with a sniper for when things get a up close and personal. In that case, check out our picks for the Warzone best SMGs, to elevate your close range game. 

Warzone Best Snipers: HDR (#5)

Once upon a time in a land far, far, too familiar, the HDR ruled at the Warzone best snipers with an iron fist. The sniper is the best option for stealth fanatics often posted up on Prison's towers.

The hard hitter is still an effective weapon, with a one-shot kill to the head, although it is often overlooked due to the pace of Warzone in the current style. If you need to slow down or find yourself in lower-ranked lobbies, the HDR could easily find its way to being the top dog once again.

Best HDR Attachments:

  • Muzzle - Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – 26.9” HDR Pro Barrel
  • Stock – FTAC Stalker-Scout
  • Laser - Tac Laser
  • Optic – Variable Zoom

Warzone Best Snipers: Swiss K31 (#4)

As one of the more recent additions to Warzone, the Swiss K31 started off as a deadly and methodical opponent dropper, although some balance changes have ridiculed some of its finesse.

Similar to the likes of the Pellington and Kar98k, speed is the selling point here, especially with a rather weak multiplier when not hitting the head. Also, despite it being a good headshot merchant, it's a nightmare to level up.

Best Swiss K31 Attachments:

  • Muzzle - GRU Suppressor 
  • Barrel - 24.9" Tiger Team
  • Laser - Steady Aim Laser
  • Rear Grip - Dropshot Wrap
  • Stock - SAS Combat Stock

Warzone Best Snipers: Modern Warfare Kar98k (#3)

Despite not even being a sniper, the Modern Warfare Kar98k reigns supreme in the department. Technically a Marksman Rifle, the Kar98k is the most effective all-around sniper, topping the statistic charts in pretty much every department. 

With elegant speed, adept accuracy, and a cross-map range, the Kar98k can be a very formidable companion indeed.

Best Kar98k Attachments:

  • Muzzle - Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel - Singuard Custom 27.6″ Barrel
  • Optic - Sniper Scope
  • Stock - FTAC Sport Comb
  • Laser - Tac Laser.

Warzone Best Snipers: LW3 Tundra (#2)

Don't sleep on the LW3 Tundra, especially if you're fancying a shift from the usual Warzone loadout. The sniper is cracking - literally cracking armour - and should be your first alternative to our number one pick.

The only downside to the Tundra that doesn't allow it to rival some of the more prominent is the typical Black Ops Cold War sights, which unfortunately don't compliment their weapons over long ranges. However, at anything close-mid range, the Tundra is one of the Warzone best snipers.

Best LW3 Tundra Attachments

  • Muzzle - Sound Moderator.
  • Barrel - 29.1″ Combat Recon.
  • Laser - SWAT 5mw Laser Sight.
  • Ammunition - 7 Rnd.
  • Rear Grip - Serpent Wrap.

Warzone Best Snipers: Vanguard Kar98k (#1)

The Kar98k has already been in Warzone in its Modern Warfare form, but Vanguard's iteration of the weapon takes it from Marksman Rifle to Sniper in spectacular fashion.

Typically, Vanguard doesn't stand up in the way of sniper rifles, but the Kar98k from World War II packs a serious punch, and more than outweighs Warzone's previous iteration of the weapon.

Best Vanguard Kar98k Attachments

  • Muzzle: Scout Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD REO2K
  • Optic: Mk. 12 Night Vision
  • Stock: Short Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip

Let's say you are more of a mid-to-long-range kind of player, and the Warzone best snipers aren't quite your style. Why not check out our picks for the Warzone best assault rifles
