Warzone Season 3 AX50 Sniper Rifle Loadouts

Weapon loadouts in Warzone play an important part. With this, you get to experience different combinations of attachments to a weapon. You can get the Monolithic Suppressor on a sniper for stealth gameplay, or get a Recoil Booster on an SMG to have better control of your sprays. This means that you can have hundreds of combinations on your weapons however you like.

The Warzone Season 3 Reloaded has made AX50 almost as if it’s a broken weapon. Although, this doesn’t mean that you pick up the AX50 with a random loadout in Warzone Season 3, and hope that it will get you the best experience. For that, it needs specific attachments that make it the beast of a weapon it is.

To get the best attachments on your weapon, normally you’d have to test them again and again. It might be that you’re looking at something completely different to get the best experience from the AX50.

With this guide, you won’t have to, as we have already prepared the Best AX50 Warzone Loadout for Season 3.

The Good & Bads of AX50

The recent update has bought snipers in the meta. Which as result has made the AX50 sniper rifle a one-shot one-kill weapon. And it has become a top choice in the new meta. At one point in the new update, a bug made the gun a hitscan weapon.

Hitscan means that you won’t have to consider the bullet drop when firing at long distances. Instead of that, your crosshair will be the end result of the bullet. With a hitscan weapon, your bullet will hit the enemy as soon as you fire it. In the case of AX50, the hitscan’s range was as long as 400m.

The recent buffs to the sniper rifles made them a go-to for every player in Warzone. And thanks to AX50’s faster cycle rate you have an upper hand in sniper battles.

It allows you to have a higher edge even in 2v1 battles. Did you know that having the proper settings can make a huge difference in fights in Warzone? Check out our Best Warzone Settings for PS4 [2022] and Best Warzone Settings for PC [2022] to make sure you’re not missing anything. 

But still, the weapon falls back due to its low muzzle velocity. This makes it hard to use when targeting enemies at extreme distances. As AX50 is a bolt-action sniper rifle, you’ll have to take cover while discarding the spent round.

Best AX50 Loadouts in Warzone Season 3

In Warzone, with the new meta, you get to have different options for the AX50’s loadout. The thing about warzone is that with it, you aren’t limited to one option.

With over 35 different attachments, including the perks, there are hundreds of different combinations you can make. But not all of these would be good enough to be called the Best Season 3 AX50 Warzone Loadout. So we’ve come up with some of the best AX50 Loadouts in Warzone.

AX50 Warzone JGOD Loadout

One of the first players to know about the absurd hitscan bug was JGOD. JGOD in a tweet thanked Symthic for informing the Warzone community about the Hitscan. Then, it wasn’t long before JGOD came up with his own Best AX50 Loadout.

For the loadout, he used the following attachments,

JGOD’s AX50 loadout.
  • Muzzle: Lightweight Suppressor
  • Barrel: 17” Factory Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Optic: Cronen C480 Pro Optic

Why This AX50 Loadout?

This loadout shows that JGOD has understood the AX50 and has worked on the things that it was lacking. With the Hitscan bug, there isn’t a need to have higher bullet velocity or range. The hitscan has a fixed range of up to 400m, as tested by JGOD himself.

The muzzle he chose for this build is the lightweight suppressor that ensures that you’ll be safe from enemies. And as there is no need to have a higher range, he went with a 17” Factory Barrel as it lowers the ADS speed. Tac Laser and Singuard Arms Assassin Stock in this loadout play the same role in reducing ADS speed.

Next up, you have different choices, you can either let it be or choose Stippled Grip Tape as the rear grip. And JGOD shows that Cronen C480 Pro-Optic is a good choice for the optics for AX50.

Secondary Weapon

The AX50 Sniper Rifle is best for long-range combat, but like every other sniper rifle, falls off in close-range combat. So, professional Warzone Players like to pair Submachine Guns with their Snipers. And when it comes to JGOD, he prefers using the Carl Gustaf M/45 Submachine Gun.

Although it is a solid gun, we prefer using the MP40. We recently did a guide on the Best MP40 Loadout In Warzone Season 3.

Equipment

  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

As for the Lethal, JGOD likes to use ‘Throwing Knife’ to get a confirmed kill. Whereas if you find yourself getting sneaked on, the Stun Grenade is a great help.

Perks

According to JGOD, there are a few perks suitable for this loadout. These perks make this the Best AX50 Warzone Season 3 Loadout. The perks chosen by JGOD are:

  • Perk 1: Quick Fix
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped

Quick Fix perk increases heath the regeneration speed in Warzone. The Health Regeneration now works 2 seconds faster than without the perk. This perk can be a life saver in many scenarios, and it ensures that you can secure back-to-back kills.

The Overkill Perk allows you to carry two primary weapons. But you won’t be able to equip the same two weapons. As the changing tide of the battlefield in Warzone, you don’t know when the need arises to have two primary weapons to fight enemies. So this perk is good to have.

Amped Perk allows you to swap between weapons and increases the reload speed of launcher-type weapons. You might rarely get to use launcher-type weapons, but we can assure you that a faster swap between weapons comes in handy when you’re using a sniper rifle.

AX50 Warzone Stealth Loadout

Up next is a loadout that we came up with ourselves while testing the weapon. As we had the first loadout from JGOD taking care of the ADS, we designed this 2nd loadout to ensure that the AX50 will have its long-range. For that, after a few tests with different attachments, we came up with the following loadout.

AX50's Best loadout in Warzone season 3 makes it superb.

  • Muzzle: MonolithicSuppressor
  • Barrel: 32” Factory Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Stock: Singuard Arms Assassin
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Optic: Thermal Dual power Scope

Why This AX50 Loadout?

There are high chances that Warzone will fix the Hitscan bug of AX50 in the coming weeks. That might deem the sniper useless to many players. Because we don’t want you to give up on the AX50.

So this AX50 Warzone Loadout for Season 3 is best when it comes to high range and accuracy. You can stay hidden while getting eliminations.

The Monolithic Suppressor has superior sound suppression when compared to the lightweight suppressor. It also increases the range of the AX50. But the weight of this suppressor affects AX50’s agility.

32” Factory Barrel again focuses on the range of AX50 by increasing its muzzle velocity. This longer barrel has stabilized shots, but it hinders the AX50’s mobility.

Tac Laser, Singuard Arms Assassin, and Stippled Grip Tape all ensure that this AX50 Loadout in Season 3 Warzone has reduced ADS. That way, as soon as you locate an enemy, it won’t take long for you to aim and take the shot.

As for the optional attachment, we have the Thermal Dual Power Scope. This thermal imaging scope has two magnifications of 5.0x and 12.1x. So whatever extreme ranges you have while fighting enemies, or whatever the lighting conditions you have, your sniper won’t be a setback.

Secondary Weapon

Renetti is a superb secondary weapon when it comes to sniping. In close combat, we don’t think there is a better weapon to pair with the AX50. 

Equipment

  • Lethal: Claymore
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

The Claymore is perfect for any sniper. As a sniper would have to stay in one place, looking for enemies to eliminate, anyone can sneak behind them and kill them. So placing Claymores at secure locations can take care of that.

As for the Heartbeat Sensor, it plays the same role as the Claymore, but you’ll have to use it from time to time to ensure that no one is close to you. And if someone comes close to you, you’ll have time to reposition yourself.

Using these pieces of equipment ensures that you can focus on taking out enemy targets without a worry about your six. Sometimes, these equipments might fail, whatever the reason may be. That’s why we’ve prepared the Best COD Warzone Audio Settings to ensure you can hear the enemy’s footsteps before they get near you.

Perks

When it comes to perks, you can choose a variety of perks. Each of these has its own benefits. We decided to take the following perks.

  • Perk 1: Cold-blooded
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Tracker

Cold-blooded perk makes you undetectable by AI-Targeting systems and thermal optics. You’ll still be visible to them, but won’t be marked.

Ghost Perk at first made the player undetectable to killstreak UAV, even if they weren’t moving. But after the recent nerf, the player will have to move for the perk to work. This comes in handy when you’re trying to reposition yourself to get a better shot at enemies.

Last but not the least, the Tracker perk allows the player to locate enemies by observing their footprints. And when you’re a sniper, it’s quite helpful to know where the enemy hid while you were reloading.

COD Warzone season 3 patch notes entail all the new changes in the gun meta. Now, the AX50 has reached the height of popularity. So there was a need to create the best AX50 Warzone Loadout in Season 3.

And we delivered 2 of the best loadouts. One is from the renowned Warzone player JGOD, whereas the other is a creation of our own.
