Warzone 2 sniper rifle tier list

S Tier MCPR-300 SP-X 80
A TierSignal 50 LA-B 330

So far, the MCPR-300 and the SP-X 80 top our tier list closely followed by the Signal 50 and the LA-B 330. The difference between the two tiers comes down to the occurrence of hitmarkers.

Having used the Signal 50 and LA-B 330, the slightly weaker damage output results in inconsistent performance which is far from ideal in situations where landing a single bullet can add another elimination to your name.

How many sniper rifles are in Warzone 2

At launch, Warzone 2 will contain a total of five sniper rifles. The Season One update sees the arrival of the Victus XMR and as soon as we have a chance to use it, we'll add it to the list to see how it fares against the current selection.
