November 2, 2022: The AX-50 won't appear in Warzone 2 but there's still an impressive selection of snipers on offer.

Sniper rifles often have an impact on the metagame in Call of Duty titles thanks to their immense power in long-distance duels. Throughout the history of the franchise, players have had numerous options in order to make an impact whether it's through quickscoping or picking off opponents from afar.

With the launch of Warzone 2 on the horizon, several members of the community are already turning their attention to the new arsenal of weaponry. Just like the first Warzone title, the sniper rifle category will be one of the most popular as players aim to score their first victory.

The AX-50 from 2019's Modern Warfare is one weapon likely arriving. But before we share the best AX-50 Warzone 2 loadout, check out our guides showcasing the best Warzone 2 guns and the best Warzone 2 FOV settings.

What is the best AX-50 Warzone 2 loadout?

At the time of writing (September 7, 2022), it's impossible to determine the best AX-50 Warzone 2 loadout as the game's launch is still a while away. The next chapter of the battle royale is expected to release in mid-November, it'll be a few months before the best loadout for the sniper rifle appears.

Once we've had a chance to test various combinations, we will update the guide with all the intel.

Is the AX-50 in Warzone 2?

Despite a lack of information from Infinity Ward, a leak unveiling several weapons arriving in Modern Warfare 2 all but confirms the presence of the AX-50 in Warzone. As always, it's important to take leaks with a pinch of salt but considering the sniper appeared in 2019's Modern Warfare, there's a chance the leak is accurate.

If the AX-50 is in Warzone 2, the sniper will feature a bolt-action mechanic alongside a huge damage output. However, the kick after firing a bullet will require some control.
