December 1, 2022: Struggling to master the Victus XMR ahead of Season One Reloaded? Scroll down for the best loadout and best attachments for your loadout.

Warzone 2 is finally here much to the excitement of players dropping into the action. Before landing in Al Mazrah, the best Warzone 2 Victus XMR loadout is bound to prove popular as players search for a strong sniper rifle to use in long-distance duels.


Described as a "hard-hitting, bolt-action sniper rifle," the Victus XMR heavily resembles the L96A1 from Modern Warfare 3 and if it's anything like its predecessor, it'll slot into the early meta with ease.

Elsewhere in the world of Warzone 2, knowing the best Warzone 2 guns to use can prove hugely beneficial alongside knowing the ins and outs of the Warzone 2 map.

What is the best Warzone 2 Victus XMR loadout?

Attachment Name
BarrelMack 8 21.5" Short
OpticTeplo-OP3 Scope
StockXRK Rise 50
Ammunition.50 Cal High Velocity
Rear GripBruen Q900 Grip

Despite the slight reduction in damage, this build provides improvements to range and accuracy ensuring the shots you fire hit the target.

The improvements to handling also make it very easy to tame the high levels of kick generated by the sniper's immense power.


Best Warzone 2 Victus XMR attachments

The Warzone 2 gunsmith contains a wide variety of attachments with numerous pros and cons. After some testing, this set of five is the best to use:

  • Barrel: Mack 8 21.5" Short
  • Optic: Teplo-0P3 Scope
  • Stock: XRK Rise 50
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

The choice of the Mack 8 21.5 Short barrel is due to the reduction in aim-down sight (ADS) speed. Although it decreases damage, the increase in reaction time is hugely advantageous. For further ADS improvements, the combination of XRK Rise 50 and Bruen Q900 Grip works extremely well.

To guarantee minimal damage drop-off, the .50 cal High Velocity ammunition means the chances of scoring a hitmarker are greatly reduced.
