The marksman rifle category in Warzone was once dominated by Modern Warfare's Kar98k and thanks to the Season 3 update, this is no longer the case. A huge dose of buffs and nerfs from Raven Software has altered the long-range meta, causing the SP-R 208 to rise in popularity.
Resembling the iconic R700 from Call of Duty 4, the SP-R 208 comes with a bolt-action firing mechanic alongside lethal mid-range damage and high mobility levels. While it's deadly at longer distances, its close-range capabilities aren't the best but with the right set of attachments, there's no need to worry.
In this guide, find the best SP-R 208 attachments and the best SP-R 208 loadout to use in the battle royale.
What Is The Best SP-R 208 Warzone Loadout
|Optic||Variable Zoom Scope|
|Magazine||.300 Norma Mag 5-R Mags|
Rather than improving the SPR's mobility, this build improves accuracy and range, ensuring your shots hit the intended target every single time. Armed with an impressive damage output, additional accuracy and range improves the SPR even more.
SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle Overview
The outright mobility is what sets the SP-R apart from the rest of the Marksman Rifles in Warzone.
With minimal bullet drop and almost no damage drop-off, it is very easy to take down a target with just a single bullet to the head, making it deadly in and mid-range and long-distance duels.
Thanks to the Gunsmith, there are numerous attachment combinations to suit all styles of play, but which are the best attachments to equip on the SP-R?
Best SP-R 208 Warzone Attachments
- Monolithic Suppressor (Muzzle)
- SP-R 26” (Barrel)
- Tac Laser (Laser)
- Variable Zoom Scope (Optic)
- .300 Norma Mag 5-R Mag (Ammunition)
This particular combination of attachments provides increases in damage range and aim down sight speed, enabling you to lock onto a target as fast as possible.
The choice of scope provides a crystal-clear view of any targets that could be lurking in the distance, but for those that prefer to get up close and personal with the SP-R, we recommend selecting the G.I Mini Reflex.
Best SP-R 208 Warzone Perks and Equipment
Once the best set of attachments is equipped, it's time to choose a strong combination of Perks and Equipment in order to complete the best SP-R 208 Warzone loadout. Find the best Perks and grenades to use alongside the marksman rifle below.
- Semtex (Lethal)
- Stim (Tactical)
This combination of utility may be used a lot of the time but that’s because it’s the best.
The Semtex is great for dealing with any additional targets that are in close proximity while the Stim provides an instant boost of health in addition to a temporary speed increase.
- Double Time (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
Double Time further utilises the incredible mobility of the SP-R, doubling the length of Tactical Sprint and enabling you to move around the map quickly. Overkill allows you to run two primary weapons in the same loadout, perfect for creating the best all-purpose loadout, and Amped increases weapon swap speed which allows you to react to any situation as quickly as possible.
Is The SP-R 208 Good In Warzone?
Thanks to the huge sniper nerfs in Season 3, the SP-R 208 is beginning to grow in popularity once again. This particular loadout is deadly in mid-range and long-distance duels thanks to the attachment combination selected.
In my opinion, the popularity of the rifle is only going to continue. I recommend using the rifle on Rebirth Island and Caldera as soon as you get a chance!
