The SVT-40 Marksman Rifle is often overlooked in Warzone despite possessing incredible power at longer distances. With the metagame changing on a regular basis and following the Season 2 Reloaded update, the popularity of Marksman Rifles is on the rise.

Armed with deadly headshot damage, the SVT-40 is capable of dominating in many in-game scenarios. With that said, find the best SVT-40 Warzone loadout alongside the best set of attachments to use in this guide!

Once the attachments have been equipped, selecting the best Perks for the job is just as important, giving you even more versatility during a match.
- Double Time (Perk 1)
- Ghost (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
First up, we've got Double Time on this list. With this Perk equipped you will be able to identify enemies that are directly ahead of you. Next up is Ghost. This perk will allow you to hide easily from enemy Spy Planes, making you invisible to enemy radar while moving.
Since there's no Overkill in this loadout, we recommend you use the Top Break handgun for now, as your secondary weapon. It's a broken weapon for now, so enjoy it before a fix comes in.
Last but not least is Amped. Thanks to the increased weapon swap speed, it's very easy to switch between weapons depending on the scenario you find yourself in.
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Stun
With the Semtex and Stun as your equipment, you will have an added benefit in the gunfights you walk into, provided you know how to use them correctly.
