January 25, 2023: Ahead of Season Two, we've checked over our intel to reveal the very best sniper support loadout available in Season One.

Utilising the best Warzone 2 sniper support loadout is essential for many players dropping into Call of Duty's battle royale. With a variety of terrain to overcome, getting your hands on a sniper rifle is an excellent tool to deal some long-distance damage.

Although it's immensely satisfying, Warzone 2 sniper rifles lack the versatility needed to secure numerous victories in Al Mazrah. In a bid to improve close-quarters and mid-range performance, you can fall back on an extensive weapon arsenal that features plenty of sniper support options.

What is the best Warzone 2 sniper support loadout?

Primary Weapon
SP-X 80
Secondary Weapon
Perk Package
Weapon Specialist
Semtex (Lethal) Stun Grenade (Tactical)

With Season Two on the way, the best sniper to use in Warzone 2 is currently the SP-X 80. Armed with an impressive damage output and the ability to eliminate opponents from extremely long distances, this particular sniper is the one to use. Here are the attachments you should equip:

  • Muzzle: FTAC Dreadnought
  • Stock: Max DMR Precision
  • Ammunition: .300 High Velocity
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip

Alongside the sniper, you'll want a powerful gun that's capable of shredding through anyone attempting to stop your sniping spree. There are numerous options but after spending time testing a range of guns, we recommend the TAQ-56 assault rifle as part of the best Warzone 2 sniper support loadout.

Make sure you check out our TAQ-56 loadout guide for all there is to know about this lethal assault rifle.

Best Warzone 2 sniper support package

Once you've equipped the strongest attachments onto the SP-X 80 and the TAQ-56, it's time to select a perk package that provides the highest amount of versatility during a match. Here's what we recommend.

Weapon Specialist

  • Overkill
  • Strong Arm
  • Spotter
  • Survivor

The main element of this particular package is Overkill. The ability to carry two primary weapons in the same loadout is the key to making the most of a sniper support loadout. Alongside the base perk, Spotter allows you to see through any nearby equipment or field upgrades through walls which is handy if anyone's placed a claymore on the other side of a closed door.

Choosing the best weapons isn't the only part of the best sniper support loadout. Having equipment capable of dealing even more damage and disorienting your opponents is also important. After testing various combinations, we've settled on a pair of grenades perfect for the job.

  • Semtex (Lethal)
  • Flash Grenade (Tactical)

The semtex is perfect for some extra explosive damage and to deal with any oncoming vehicles while a flash grenade temporarily blinds anyone standing nearby.
