Warzone 2: One Shot Sniper Best Loadout

Learn all you need to know about the One Shot Sniper in Warzone 2

Warzone 2 came with some interesting changes, which were received with mixed opinions. One of the more controversial changes was that they removed one-shot sniper kills from Warzone 2. However, that didn’t stop the community from testing out every possible loadout and attachment available to see if they could still make a sniper capable of accomplishing this goal.

Key Takeaways
  • In Warzone 2, some changes, like removing one-shot sniper kills, stirred mixed reactions.
  • Fortunately, the Victus XMR is a one-shot sniper, slightly slower with a shorter range, but you can optimize it with specific attachments:
    • Mack 8 33.5 Super barrel.
    • VLK LZR 7mw laser.
    • SP-X 80 6.6X optic.
    • XRX Rise 50 stock.
    • .50 Cal Explosive ammo.
  • As a secondary weapon for the one-shot sniper, the HCR 56 works well.
  • While the one-shot sniper is deadly in solo play, it’s less reliable in duos or squads, possibly due to a glitch or oversight that might get fixed later on.

The only sniper that has the power to punch through 3 plates of Armor and kill an enemy in one shot is the Victus XMR. The sniper will help you secure easy kills at long range and give you the satisfaction of killing an enemy in one shot. Unlike other snipers, it is stronger but also slower and has less range. However, it’s great for sniping at mid-range and will shatter the enemy.


The right attachments can really make or break the One Shot sniper in Warzone 2. If you change one of these attachments, the sniper will no longer be One shot.

So you need to follow these attachments to the tee. The One Shot sniper is built to have the most damage possible. However, that comes at the cost of Bullet velocity and range. The attachments will make the gun harder to play with, but it’s still the only sniper to kill with one shot.

All the necessary accessories for the One Shot Sniper are listed below.

  • Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7mw 
  • Optic: SP-X 80 6.6X
  • Stock: XRX Rise 50
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Explosive

Since the sniper is going to dominate the lobby in mid to long-range fights, you will need a good secondary to destroy the enemies at Close Range. You can run an SMG cause they are fast and have a swift Fire rate, but the damage output per bullet is quite low. In a fight against multiple enemies, you will be at a disadvantage. We will recommend going with one of the strongest weapons in the game, the HCR 56.

The HCR 56 is a bit of a heavy gun because it is an LMG. It has a slower Aim Down Sight Speed and movement speed. You will be a bit slower using the HCR 56, but what it lacks in speed, it makes up for it in damage. The HCR 56 has one of the fastest times to kill in Warzone 2 and demolish a whole squad in one mag.

No Loadout is complete without its complementing perks to go along with it. They will give you the extra advantage you have over the competition and play to your strengths. They allow you to carry two primary weapons or even let you know when an enemy is looking at you. For the One Shot Sniper Loadout in Warzone 2, we will be using the Weapon Specialist Perk Package

Here are our picks of the Best Perks for the One Shot Sniper Loadout in WZ 2.0:

  • Basic Perks: Overkill and Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor


One of the most important items in the game is equipment. They help you turn the tables over an enemy and win a losing fight. The best equipment to use will be the Stun as your tactical and a claymore to proximity mine as the lethal.

Snipers are always at risk of being caught from behind, so you can put a trap behind you to stop any enemy from getting too close. The Stun will nerf the enemy movement, making them sitting ducks for your sniper.

Since Warzone 2 has removed One Shot sniping, you will be ahead of all the competition with the One Shot sniper in Warzone 2. However, it is speculated that the developer had overlooked this detail and will soon patch it. So you should get it before it’s gone.
