Easily one of the most accessible sniper rifles in all of Warzone is the AX-50 from Modern Warfare. The sniper feels right at home for Call of Duty players as it closely resembles a few weapons from previous titles.
Armed with a bolt-action firing mechanism, a widespread change to the vast majority of snipers as part of the Season 3 update has seen the popularity of the AX-50 skyrocket thanks to its ability to take down an opponent with a single bullet.
With Season 3 of the Pacific era in full swing and players always on the lookout for a powerful long-range weapon, the AX-50 is still proving a popular choice despite some stiff competition from other weapons in the same category. With that said, find the best AX-50 Warzone loadout and the best attachments to equip in our definitive loadout guide.
What Is The Best AX-50 Warzone Loadout?
Having spent countless hours mastering the AX-50 during the Verdansk era of Warzone, surprisingly little has changed since the switch to Caldera. Find a full attachment list for the sniper below.
|Barrel||Singuard Arms Pro|
|Stock||Singuard Arms Assassin|
|Rear Grip||Stippled Grip Tape|
This simple yet hugely effective build increases damage output alongside improving reaction times, allowing you to pick off targets as soon as you manage to spot them.
Best AX-50 Warzone Attachments
With everyone attempting to master an all-new sniper meta, we've found a combination of attachments that guarantees a high output of damage and a quick aim-down sight speed. Here are the best AX-50 Warzone attachments to use:
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: Singuard Arms Pro
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
This set of attachments is perfect for any long-distance duel on Caldera and Rebirth Island. The Monolithic Suppressor and Singuard Arms barrel provide a significant increase in damage output while the combination of Tac Laser and Stippled Grip Tape improves aim-down sight speed and sprint-to-fire time, allowing incredibly fast reaction times when using the AX-50.
Overall, the AX-50 has returned to the top of the metagame thanks to its immense power and this set of attachments only improves it further, making it one of the very best snipers to use in Warzone.
Best AX-50 Warzone Perks and Equipment
Once the best attachments are equipped to the AX-50, selecting a set of Perks and Equipment to complement the rifle is the next step to building the strongest loadout. Here are the best Perks and Equipment to use alongside the AX-50.
- Frag Grenade (Lethal)
- Stim (Tactical)
A simple Frag Grenade is hugely effective during a Warzone match. Cook it to perfection for instant impact or time your throw to destroy an incoming vehicle with ease.
For our tactical, the Stim continues to prove useful thanks to its instant health regeneration and temporary speed boost allowing you to duck and dive from any potential threats.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
Overkill is essential when opting to run a sniper rifle setup. Having a strong secondary weapon always makes the difference if you have to deal with a target in close proximity and you want a weapon that is more effective than a pistol or a launcher.
Alongside Overkill, we've gone with EOD for an increase in explosive resistance and Amped for a faster weapon swap speed. This will help you switch to a more suitable weapon in certain scenarios.
Is the AX-50 Good In Warzone?
After using it in Caldera for a few matches, I can safely say that the AX-50 is still one of the strongest snipers to be used in Warzone. The surprisingly high levels of mobility combined with the high bullet velocity make it very easy to lock onto a target and eliminate them with minimal effort.
