League of Legends
Call of Duty
While the list of sniper rifles in Call of Duty: Warzone is quite extensive, the number of players using them is not. Since Raven Software made severe changes to snipers in Season 3, players haven’t been too keen on re-equipping them on their loadouts. The developers essentially made it close to impossible to one-shot kill an enemy with a headshot when using a sniper. While these changes have had catastrophic repercussions on the sniper class as a whole, there’s still one that’s considered the best in Warzone.
For multiple iterations of Warzone, the Kar98k was king of the snipers. It featured unmatched mobility and accuracy, allowing players to quickscope their opponents back to the lobby in a matter of seconds. However, since the Kar98k’s reign came to an end, other snipers have emerged to take over its spot. Guns like the Swiss K31, LW3 Tundra, and HDR have come and gone as the best sniper rifles in Warzone.
In Season 4 Reloaded, the 3-Line Rifle is our pick for the current best sniper. While heavier guns like the ZRG 20mm and HDR are certainly close, the 3-Line Rifle has all of the traits that players look for in a top sniper rifle. It features solid aim down sights time and overall mobility, making it perfect for close-range engagements that players like to get into with a sniper. The 3-Line also holds its own at long range, featuring solid damage range and accuracy.
Players looking to use the 3-Line Rifle can essentially treat it like the Kar98k of the older days in Warzone. It’s quick, accurate, and can kill in two shots. The recommended loadout for the 3-Line Rifle in Season 4 Reloaded is as below:
- Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
- Barrel: Empress 514mm F01
- Optic: N/A
- Stock: ZAC Custom MZ
- Underbarrel: Mark IV Skeletal
- Magazine: .30-06 30 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Leather Grip
- Perk 1: Silent Focus
- Perk 2: Deep Breath
While the sniper class is still at the bottom of Warzone after the Season 3 nerfs, the 3-Line Rifle is the best choice of the bunch.
