Understanding the Warzone meta is a surefire way for players to score plenty of kills over the course of a match. Usually, there are a few weapons from Call of Duty’s battle royale that stand out from the crowd, resulting in most fans using the same weapons.

With Season 4 Reloaded moving into view, players believe the current selection of skins is worse than Warzone 1, while recent improvements to anti-cheat are causing hackers to ‘hallucinate’ instead of ruining matches.

Ahead of the mid-season update, one player believes they’ve uncovered which sniper rifle has the best chance of dominating once the second half of Season 4 begins.

The next Warzone meta weapon?

During a recent match, Reddit user MousePandaGaming believes a sniper rifle will be the next weapon to dominate the Warzone meta. The player says: “The SPX is unmatched!”

The short clip demonstrates the immense power of the SP-X 80 in all kinds of situations, ranging from picking off a parachuting target or quickscoping an opponent that’s about to take cover.

Other players are in agreement with the potential of an SP-X 80 meta. Another community member gives the video their seal of approval: “That’s fire.” Other fans were quick to ask for the loadout MousePandaGaming was using.
