The sniper rifle metagame in Warzone underwent a major change as part of Season 3. Thanks to Raven Software, a range of buffs and nerfs impacted nearly every single sniper in the category, influencing which are the very best to use on Caldera and Rebirth Island.
One sniper that has skyrocketed towards the very top of the ever-changing meta is the HDR from Modern Warfare. This bolt-action beast possesses an immense damage output and while its mobility may not be as strong as others in the category, it compensates for it by taking down targets with a single bullet to the head.
With that said, find the best HDR Warzone loadout and the best attachments to equip in our definitive loadout guide for the sniper expected to dominate Season 4.
What Is The Best HDR Warzone Loadout?
|Barrel||26.9" HDR Pro|
|Magazine||9 Round Mags|
As a staple of the Warzone arsenal, we've had plenty of time to fine-tune the attachment combination in order to deal as much damage as possible and with this set equipped, it's very easy to do so.
Best HDR Warzone Attachments
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: 26.9" HDR Pro
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: FTAC Stalker-Scout
- Magazine: 9 Round Mags
This combination of attachments is perfect for scoring one-shot kills with ease as well as shredding through the armour of any opposition standing in the way.
As always, the monolithic suppressor makes an appearance in order to improve damage range while the choice of laser improves aim-down sight speed, giving you the ability to react quickly to a target.
Best HDR Warzone Perks and Equipment
Once the best set of attachments are equipped, the HDR's mobility can be improved by selecting the right combination of Perks. In addition, it's easy to deal some extra damage with a strong set of Equipment to fall back on. Here are the best Perks and Equipment to use alongside the sniper.
- Double Time (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
This Perk combination is very hard to beat. EOD increases your resistance to explosives while Overkill improves customisation options by enabling you to select two primary weapons in the same loadout. On this occasion, we recommend using Vanguard's Automaton for the perfect mid-range menace.
Lastly is Amped. This Perk increases weapon swap speed, allowing you to swap between the HDR and the Automaton as fast as possible depending on the situation
Is the HDR Good In Warzone?
After using it for a few matches, the HDR certainly has its uses despite its mobility. With nerfs to Modern Warfare's Kar98k and the Swiss K31 from Black Ops Cold War, the HDR is one of the strongest snipers in the entire game.
Instead of running and gunning, a slightly slower pace of play allows you to pick off any targets with ease. I highly recommend using the HDR over the course of Season 3.
There you have it! That's how to build the very best HDR Warzone loadout. For more intel, check out our page for the latest news, leaks, and loadout guides for Call of Duty's battle royale.
