Is the SP-X 80 good in Warzone 2?

With plenty of viable sniper rifles available in Warzone 2, it's hard to see where the SP-X 80 fits in but after using it in mid-range situations rather than long-distance duels, it's one of the less impressive options to use ahead of Season 5 Reloaded.

The ability to deal plenty of damage is there, but there are stronger snipers to use.
