ZRG 20 mm – Best COD Warzone Sniper

The newest sniper in Warzone is the ZRG 20mm, and it’s the best among the competitive snipers in the game. It has a fast rate of fire, great bullet velocity, and high damage. It guarantees that one-shot-kill headshot, and with the recent stealth nerfs to many weapons, the ZRG has come out on top when it comes to getting close to a hitscan rifle.

2. HDR

  • Damage: 250 | 112 | 107 | 91
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 31.5
  • Magazine: 5

HDR is the best choice if players want to go for long-range snipers with high bullet velocity. With the right barrel, this sniper is the best choice if you want to take hands-on combat ranging long distances. Although it’s slow and heavy, its bullet velocity makes up for it, and it is a top-tier sniper as well.

3. LW3 – Tundra

  • Damage: 250 | 112 | 102 | 91
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 47
  • Magazine: 5

LW3 – Tundra is one of the best COD Warzone Snipers in the game, due to its high damage and bullet velocity. It has the fastest bullet velocity of any sniper rifle on this list, placing it third on the list. Players can even use the Royal & Cross 4x scope to negate sniper glint.

4. AX-50

  • Damage: 250 | 112 | 102 | 91
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 40
  • Magazine: 5

AX-50 is a sniper that feels great to use but doesn’t have the speed of the Kar98k or the bullet velocity of the HDR. Although this might be in a slightly lower tier than the above, it offers a smoother and faster ride than HDR. It also provides players with the additional boon of low recoil, something players will swear they want more in snipers.

5. Pelington 703

  • Damage: 250 | 112 | 102 | 91
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 54
  • Magazine: 5

The Pelington 703 has high damage and fast ADS speeds that place it at the top of the sniper list, even if it isn’t the absolute best. Although it does not beat its predecessors in many ways, for aggressive players, it may be the best sniper rifle. This sniper rifle is great for fast-scoping, allowing players with steady hands to score quick headshots.

6. M82

  • Damage: 250 | 112 | 102 | 91
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 180

The M82 is scoring less in the tier although it guarantees deal high damage and has a fast rate of fire. It beats its successors due to its one-headshot kill ability, although it ranks less in many ways, including bullet velocity and bullet drops. Though not the best, it’s not the absolute worst and is a good choice for beginners.

7. Rytec AMR

  • Damage: 250 | 112 | 102 | 91
  • Range: Medium to Long
  • RPM: 165
  • Magazine: 5

The Rytec is one of the looked down upon snipers in COD Warzone. Although it holds more credit than players give it, it is not worth the expense when there are snipers like ZRG or HDR around.  On the plus side, its unique explosive and thermite round attachments can lay waste to a vehicle in a few shots. 

8. Swiss K31

  • Damage: 110
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 60
  • Magazine: 5

The Swiss K31 is a lightweight sniper rifle that is a great option for players wanting the form of a Kar98k or Pellington 703 but wants to go for long-distance shots. It is a good choice for fast-paced action but does not come close to high-tier bolt action sniper rifles in many ways.

9. Dragunov

  • Damage: 140 | 136 | 70 | 63
  • Range: Long
  • RPM: 208
  • Magazine: 10

What might be the worst sniper in COD Warzone, the Dragunov is not much of use in the game, as it deals low damage and has high recoil, to the point where every other sniper rifle beats it, making it the obvious worst of the game all in all. Except its satisfactory fire rate, nothing is in par and players might want to avoid it.
