The Best Snipers to use in Warzone

Although Warzone offers a huge array of weapon arsenal to a player’s inventory, the sniper, is by far, one of the most useful ones that I have used in the game. It has allowed me to pick off smaller teams, allow large teams to aimlessly recover in the gas, and help my team scout enemies miles away.

Although one of the least liked, one of the most versatile snipers rifles is the Dragunov. Like all the other snipers, this has the capability of downing an enemy player if you hit a critical position. It is also not a long reload time between shots, which makes it very effective in high-pressure situations. For example, if you are in the last circles, and there is a team of four in a high mountaintop, it should be easy to coordinate a clean sweep with an accurate player given the quick rate of the Dragunov. It also has some drawbacks, of course, like its base damage being low and its range being shorter than most, dropping after around 150meters. Due to this, it will be harder hitting a moving target in a quick-paced race to get away from the gas or an enemy team. However, with the right attachments, like the stock or optic, to increase your chances of a critical hit.

The second best sniper in the game is the AX-50. Although quite similar in preference to the HDR, it still has a lower bullet velocity and a bullet drop compared to the HDR. This can be a huge difference in gameplay dynamics. For example, if you make a headshot connect, that squad will scramble: do I help and revive my teammate, or do I make a run for it? That huge margin in a pressure-heavy situation makes the AX-50 slightly less good than the HDR. however, like the HDR, one of its best qualities is its thermal ability. To be able to more easily spot enemies, unlike the Dragunov, everyone is visible to the sniper and you can even change zooms for a more accurate shot.

The best sniper that comes to mind is the HDR, which is very similar to the AX-50. It does, however, have a slight advantage in velocity and accuracy that it is close to perfect. In my numerous times playing Warzone, it has been one of my most useful weapons in the game. It has the least bullet drop and can reach a target of over 250 meters. However, the HDR has huge amounts of recoil and takes a longer time to reload between rounds compared to the Dragunov. In fact, between the AX-50 and the HDR, the HDR is re-centered a lot higher. The best attachments to go with this sniper, due to its innate disadvantage, would be the bull barrel as well as the ammunition, to make it a very deadly weapon on the right hands.   Do you agree with what I said?

    i personally use the hdr with
    - monolithic suppressor (for sound suppression and slightly better bullet velocity)
    - 26.9" hdr pro barrel (for better recoil control and bullet velocity that feels like hitscan at most ranges
    - thermal dual power scope (for thermal optics at really long ranges)
    - FTAC stalker-scout stock for better ADS speed
    and then i use the tac laser because im not usually ADSing for long periods of time, but you could change it out for a perk or extended mags or a bipod if you want to.

    I personally use AX-50 with
    -monolithic suppressor
    -33.0" factory barrel
    -thermal dual power scope
    -singuard arms assassin
    -9 round mag
    I’ve this to be most effective for me in warzone.

  • Black _viper_PL LV.8 Monster May 19, 2020, 04:42 PM

    I have been playing using the ax for a long time but then i came to the conclusion that the hdr is better. At start i didn't feel that but once i unlocked the ax inside of the scope i felt like that is really good

  • Gamer987654 LV.2 Lurker May 20, 2020, 06:30 AM

    Thermal or variable

  • Black _viper_PL LV.8 Monster May 20, 2020, 04:08 PM

    Normal with 6x and 12

  • AussieZombie LV.2 Lurker May 18, 2020, 09:04 AM

    Personally, i don’t recommend the thermal scopes for war zone, because at the very first load out drop people often have the coldblooded perk, which makes sniping with thermals that much harder. So I would recommend the variable scope as it has an amazing zoom for really far ranges and medium ranges.

  • Gamer987654 LV.2 Lurker May 19, 2020, 05:11 AM

    I can see why you would say that but for longer distances even with cold blooded it is easier to spot people with the thermal than it is with the variable. Plus in my experience I play better with thermal

  • TyrantTRex LV.13 Xbox May 19, 2020, 07:01 AM

    I beg to differ bc ive had multiple instances where (since I play on Xbox) the thermals textures aren’t loading right and everything looks very much the same at those extreme distances whereas with all of the weirdly colored purifiers people are running around in the normal variable zoom worked a lot better Bc even with the textures not loading properly I could pick them out bc I could tell the difference in color

  • Gamer987654 LV.2 Lurker May 19, 2020, 10:27 AM

    I guess it’s just personal preference and using whatever feels comfortable is best I just found more consistent success with the ax with thermal

  • DARK GAMER LV.7 Nomad May 15, 2020, 08:09 PM

    I use HDR

  • Alonzo Cortez LV.11 Chief May 15, 2020, 09:40 PM

  • Andrew Holsten LV.2 Lurker May 15, 2020, 11:25 PM

    I like the AX

  • iSlayBTW LV.5 Lurker May 18, 2020, 08:58 PM

    Kar98k
    -Singuard Custom 21.2”
    -Tac Laser
    -Sniper Scope
    -FTAC Sport Comb
    -Stippled Grip Tape

  • TyrantTRex LV.13 Xbox May 19, 2020, 07:04 AM

    Sounds like you’re going for a quick scoping but consistent multiplayer build I just can’t see the car being more effective then the actual snipers in warzone except the draganov it’s probably better then that garbage

    I've been using the AX-50 for quite some time now but I recently started using the HDR. I like the speed of the AX-50 much better, but there is no arguing the fact that the HDR has much less bullet drop.

  • TyrantTRex LV.13 Xbox May 19, 2020, 07:02 AM
