Best quick scoping loadout for MW2 and Warzone 2 snipers

Fire faster than any other sniper out there

Recommended Videos

One of the most exciting parts about playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 is picking up a sniper rifle, and quick scoping your foes before they even know what happened. Of course, to do this, you want a sniper rifle loadout that has an impressive fire rate, and the right balance of damage and control at the same time.

There are plenty of sniper rifles available currently in MW2 and Warzone 2, but some are much slower than others. Because of this, there is mainly one rifle that comes to the forefront as the best quick scoping weapon in MW2, which is the SP-X 80.

On the other hand, players who want to quick scope in Warzone 2 will want to use its marksman rifle cousin, the SP-R 208. Here are the best quick scoping loadouts for both titles that take full advantage of these weapons.

When it comes to the SP-X 80, there’s a reason this is the sniper rifle of choice for most pro players and content creators in MW2. Whether you wish to dominate the public in regular multiplayer matches or you want to reach Crimson in Ranked Play, this is the sniper rifle of choice.

While there are a few options for how to trick out this sniper rifle, this is the premier loadout that will help you to fire off shots one after another in quick succession:

  • Barrel: 22.5” Elevate 11
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
  • Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock
  • Ammo: .300 High Velocity

This is not only the fastest-firing sniper loadout, but also one of the most forgiving. Since you can fire off shots so quickly, it is easier for you to make up for misses with a second chance. Search & Destroy players, in particular, should give this loadout a try.

When it comes to Warzone 2, what you’ll want the most here is speed. The SP-R 208 is the best of the bunch when it comes to fire rate and long-range capabilities. After all, massively open maps like Al Mazrah and Ashika Island require a nice balance between the two parts.

With this quick scoping loadout, you’ll be able to pop off shots and instantly react to whatever your opponents do.

  • Barrel: 12.5” Carbon Barrel
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
  • Comb: Aim Assist 406
  • Ammo: 7.62 High Velocity
  • Optic: DS Farsight 11

Unlike the weapons in MW2, you’ll want a better optic attachment here. In addition, this loadout tweaks this already speedy bolt-action rifle for its fastest possible shots to give you the edge over the many other snipers in battle royale.
