Before Season 2, snipers so far were not really good for making one-shot headshot loadouts in MW2 and Warzone 2. Since then they have got some much-needed buffs along with other good changes that came with Season 2. Let’s take a good look at how to make a decent one-shot sniper loadout in MW2 and Warzone 2 Season 2.
Best sniper loadout class in MW2 & Warzone 2 Season 2
While there are many different snipers, there are only a few that are powerful enough to use as a one-shot headshot sniper. The MCPR-300 is by far the strongest and most versatile in this category. Its high damage paired with good handling is a blessing, especially in Warzone 2 on the new Ashika Island Map.
This is the loadout that you should be using for your MCPR to get those nasty one-shot headshots:
- Muzzle: Nilsound 90
- Barrel: 22” OMX-456
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
- Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4
- Ammunition: .300 Mag Incendiary
This MCPR-300 build can get those one-shot headshots and be a decent sniper overall regardless of its headshot capabilities. Let’s go into detail with each attachment and why you should use it.
Nilsound 90 Muzzle
The Nilsound 90 on the muzzle is essential on your loadout to get your sniper silenced enough so that it the shots are not heard from far away. This muzzle also provides slightly increased damage range and bullet velocity.
22” OMX-456 Barrel
Increasing the sniper’s damage range and bullet velocity by a lot, the 22” OMX-456 Barrel is key to having enough damage at long range for this sniper in MW2 Season 2. This barrel will also make it so that you don’t have to aim ahead of a moving target too much due to the increased bullet velocity. It is the best barrel overall.
FSS OLE-V Laser
The FFS OLE-V Laser attachment provides a very fast ADS time which is essential to snipers in general. This will make the handling much better. Be a bit careful with this though as the laser will be visible where you are aiming when you ADS.
Forge Tac Delta 4 Optic
Forge Tav Delta 4 gives you a clean optic with a decent range. This makes it even easier to get those one-shot headshots in MW2 Season 2. It also is faster in ADS than the default scope that comes along with the MCPR sniper.
.300 Mag Incendiary Ammunition
This ammunition makes it so that your bullets will do fire damage after hitting the target. It ensures that your target does not get away with very low health as the fire will take care of any remaining health if it’s very low.
