Warzone 2 brings the elusive One Shot Sniper, capable of taking out foes from great distances.

However, obtaining this unmatched weapon is no easy task. With just one rifle spawning per match in a specific spot, players must outwit other competitors seeking the same prize.

Overcome this obstacle, and you’ll possess the game’s ultimate firearm!

What is the One Shot Sniper?

The One Shot Sniper in Warzone 2 is a custom gold and green Victus XMR that has the ability to down players with just one shot, no matter where you shoot them.

It was only available during the St Patrick’s Day event, which ended March 20, and only one spawned per game.

This made the One Shot Sniper extremely sought-after and hard to get. Loads of players in every lobby rushed to pick it up immediately.

Every Way to Get One Shot Victus XMR Sniper in Warzone 2

To get the One Shot Victus XMR Sniper in Warzone 2, you must land at the end of the rainbow and loot the golden St Patrick’s Day supply boxes you can find there. It will be in one of these boxes.

You can also get it by killing and looting the player in your lobby who picked it up.

These are the only two ways that you can get the One Shot Sniper, as only one spawns per lobby.

If you do manage to pick up the One Shot Sniper, get one of the best sniper support guns in Warzone 2 to run alongside it!

As the St Patrick's Day event is now over, there is no way to obtain the One Shot Sniper in Warzone 2 any more.

Warzone 2 End of the Rainbow Location

The location of the end of the rainbow in Warzone 2 changes every game. Luckily, as the rainbow is clearly visible in the sky, it is easy to find the golden St Patrick’s Day supply boxes at the end of it.

It is also worth noting that these supply boxes at the end of the rainbow can spawn on top of buildings and vehicles or even under the green water in Al Mazrah.

Many players will rush to the end of the rainbow at the beginning of games. Be sure to head there as soon as possible to pick up the One Shot Sniper.

Can You Get the One Shot Sniper on Ashika Island?

Yes, in addition to Al Mazrah, the One Shot Victus XMR is available on the Ashika Island map.

Like in Al Mazrah, it can be found in one of the golden St Patrick’s Day supply boxes. These are located at the end of the rainbow.

If you’re lucky enough to get the One Shot Sniper on the Resurgence map, make sure to use it alongside one of the best Ashika Island loadouts to ensure you win!

Can You Get the One Shot Sniper in DMZ?

Yes, you can also pick up the One Shot Victus XMR Sniper in DMZ. You can also find it at the end of the rainbow, just like in the Warzone 2 battle royale mode.

Additionally, if you extract from DMZ with the One Shot Sniper, you can take it into DMZ again as a Contraband weapon.

Can You Unlock the One Shot Sniper Blueprint?

No, you cannot unlock the One Shot Sniper Blueprint for custom loadouts.

Even if you pick up the One Shot Sniper in Warzone 2 or extract with it in DMZ, you will not be able to unlock this powerful Victus XMR Blueprint to use in your custom loadouts.

Can You Make a Custom One Shot Sniper Build in Warzone 2?

There is currently no way of building a sniper rifle that can kill enemies with one shot in Warzone 2.

Every sniper rifle in Warzone 2 currently kills in two or more shots. Even equipping attachments like incendiary ammunition will not increase the damage enough for it to be a one-shot kill.

However, since the huge LMG nerfs in Warzone 2 Season 2 Reloaded, snipers are viable once again. Even if they can’t kill in one shot, the best sniper loadouts can still be very powerful!
