Thanks to the high bullet velocity, the ZRG is extremely versatile thanks to its ability to score kills with just a single bullet. Its sheer power means that it isn't necessary to play passively and wait for a target to appear.

Although the ZRG packs a deadly punch, the relatively slow aim down sight speed and reload speed can make it extremely easy for players to get caught out by any aggressive players encroaching onto a specific location.

With the optimum combination of attachments equipped, the reload speed and ADS time can be improved, but is it capable of contending with the AX-50 or the HDR?

Best ZRG 20mm Warzone Attachments

After a bit of time testing out a range of attachments, here are the best to use:

  • Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel: 43.9" Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Magazine: 5 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

This set of attachments increases damage output to such high levels that one bullet will shred through three pieces of armour and send an opponent to the ground with no time to react.

The ZRG comes with a built-in optic leaving plenty of space for a five-round magazine and a laser sight to address the slow aim-down sight speed.

Overall, this build is very strong in long-range combat and thanks to its ease of control, it's very easy to develop consistency when landing those tricky snipes from afar.

Best ZRG 20mm Warzone Perks and Equipment

Once the best ZRG 20mm Warzone attachments are ready for battle, choosing a strong set of Perks and Equipment to complement the rifle is just as important. Here are the best Perks and grenades to use alongside the sniper.


  • Frag Grenade (Lethal)
  • Heartbeat Sensor (Tactical)

Arguably the most versatile piece of lethal equipment in Warzone, the frag grenade can be used in a variety of ways to add some additional kills to the scoreboard.

The heartbeat sensor is a no-brainer. It is an essential piece of equipment to determine the location of any oppositions that might be posted up inside a building.


  • Double Time (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

Double Time enables you to navigate Calera or Rebirth Island much faster than normal thanks to longer tactical sprint speed. Overkill allows you to equip Vanguard's Automaton as a secondary weapon, further improving versatility levels while Amped increases weapon swap speed which enables you to switch weapons depending on the situation.

Is The ZRG 20mm Good in Warzone

After a few seasons out of the limelight, the recent sniper nerfs have seen the ZRG 20mm slot into the early Season 3 metagame. Its deadly accuracy combined with a damage output hard to match is perfect for any long-distance duels.

If you haven't used this sniper during a match, I highly recommend it in order to make an impact.
