Due to the immense power and versatility of the Kar98k Marksman rifle, Sniper Rifles in Call of Duty Warzone rarely feature in the metagame thanks to their lack of mobility. Despite this, they're still strong choices if you're looking for a gun to dominate in long-distance duels.
With a total of nine snipers to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which is the best one to select as part of the best Warzone loadout, especially when the majority of them are capable of taking down an opponent with a single bullet. Having tested each sniper, here's our Warzone sniper rifle tier list to find out which is the best!
Warzone Sniper Tier List
While this list does showcase the best and worst snipers Warzone has to offer, it doesn't rank the very best weapons in the arsenal which is where our full weapon tier list comes into play. Here's a closer look at the snipers!
The LW3 - Tundra and the Swiss K31 are the standout performers in Warzone's sniper rifle category, with both bolt-action beasts possessing extremely high damage outputs alongside recoil levels that are easy to control, giving you another chance to follow up with a second shot if the first one misses.
This trio of snipers are strong in particular scenarios but lack the versatility to be promoted into S-Tier. The high bullet velocity from each makes them excel at extremely long ranges but at closer distances, aim-down sight speed and sprint-to-fire times are far too long.
Some of these rifles once crept into the meta before being replaced with more viable alternatives higher up the list. The semi-automatic nature of the M82 does make it a useful companion to use against any oncoming vehicles but against the opposition, the high recoil makes it very hard to control.
Despite being one of the more mobile snipers, the Dragunov is the worst sniper to use in Warzone by some distance. With so many superior options available, we recommend staying well away from this sniper if you want any chance of grabbing a ride on the victory helicopter.
