Warzone 2’s best Sniper Rifles are ideal weapons for long-range battles across Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel. Here’s every Sniper Rifle ranked in Warzone 2 Season 4 Reloaded.
Warzone 2 Season 4 Reloaded has many options regarding playstyle and weaponry. Among all the buffs and nerfs included in the update, Sniper Rifles were left mostly untouched, meaning they’re still effective choices with some even able to one-shot enemies.
As you can imagine, the addition of one-shot Snipers has had a huge impact on the long-range meta. Sniper Rifles are now some of the most popular options in the game, as players look to pick off enemies from afar.
We’ll break down every Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 Season 4 Reloaded so you know exactly which one to use.

Best Warzone 2 Sniper Rifles
8. SA-B 50
Warzone 2’s Marksman Rifles have failed to leave their mark on the meta.
In last place, we have the SA-B 50. While the bolt action Marksman Rifle is certainly not an awful choice, its poor range and damage let it down, really only being effective at much closer ranges. The SA-B 50 is more suited for Ashika Island or Vondel gameplay than Al Mazrah.
7. SP-R 208
The SP-R 208 is great for quickscoping in Warzone 2.
In seventh place, we have another bolt action Marksman Rifle which is much more effective at close to medium-range sniping. The SP-R 208‘s damage and range aren’t its best attributes, hence its place in the list. However, quickscoping and fast, high-damage shots make this weapon deadly in the right hands.
Once again, the SP-R 208 is more viable on Ashika Island, and you may want to test the weapon out on the small map.
6. LA-B 330
The LA-B 330 is a balanced weapon with few weaknesses, but few strengths.
The LA-B 330 is a fairly reliable Sniper in Warzone 2 that is a great balance between long-range and close.
Those comfortable using a Sniper in medium-ranged encounters will definitely enjoy this weapon, especially as it can be built for however you’d like to use it, be it for close-range or long-range sniping.
5. Victus XMR
Warzone 2’s Vicus XMR boasts impressive handling and range.
Here we’re dealing with the first of the Snipers that have one-shot-headshot capabilities after the Season 3 update.
The Victus XMR has a great balance of handling and damage range. Usually, Snipers with long-range potential in Warzone 2 tend to be on the slower side, but the Victus has great aim down sight speed for a weapon that can take down enemies from crazy ranges.
4. SP-X 80
The SP-X 80 can kill enemies in two shots in Warzone 2.
In fourth, we have the SP-X 80, which is above the Victus due to its extremely fast handling and mobility. For quickscoping lovers who are looking for a Sniper that can get shots off quickly, the SP-X 80 is certainly the gun for you.
The main downside to this weapon is its range, as you will need to hit a player with a few shots to down them from long distance. But it’s speed make it easy to land quick follow-up shots, so we think it’s a top option in Season 4 Reloaded.
3. Signal 50
The Signal 50’s excellent fire rate makes it hard to ignore.
The Signal 50 is a great heavy Sniper option in Warzone 2 and just edges out the Victus XMR to grab the bronze medal. The weapon is known for its great fire rate, which can be the difference between life and death in a shoot-out.
It also has exceptional damage and range, which can be boosted with the correct attachments, and it’s also not as bad as you would think in terms of handling and mobility for a heavy Sniper.
With Explosive ammo, the Signal 50 is even perfect for picking off players who have three shields if you’re hitting those headshots.
2. FJX Imperium (Intervention)
The Intervention has quickly become one of the best Sniper Rifles in Warzone 2.
The return of the iconic Intervention generated plenty of hype within the community and players will be relieved to see it rank so high on the list of best Sniper Rifles in Warzone 2.
Now called the FJX Imperium, the Intervention strikes the perfect balance between range and mobility. With the right combination of attachments, it has an ADS speed fast enough to cope at mid-range, while the .408 Explosive rounds allow it to down enemies in one hit over long distances.
While it doesn’t quite take the crown, don’t be surprised to see the Intervention emerge as a fan-favorite choice in Warzone 2 Season 4 Reloaded.
1. MCPR-300 – Best Sniper in Warzone 2
Warzone 2 players who like heavy Snipers will enjoy using the MCPR-300.
The MCPR-300 is one of Warzone 2’s heavy Snipers, and it can be used right from the start of the game, no matter what level you are.
It’s designed for long-range combat, and Explosive rounds make it ideal for picking off enemies with a single headshot. It has excellent range and damage, capable of wiping out entire squads with a handful of well-placed shots.
It’s no coincidence that the MCPR-300 is also one of the most used Sniper Rifles, even cracking the top 10 most popular weapons in Warzone 2. With all this in mind, we’ve got no doubts about naming the MCPR-300 as the best Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2.
