Before the recent update, the crossbow was regarded as one of the best guns in MWZ, but now a player may have just discovered the new “strongest weapon.”

Taking down those elite bosses in the Tier 3 zone can be challenging. They boast tons of HP and can deal lots of damage to you.

However, with this MWZ weapon build, you can take them down within a matter of bullets. So, let’s dive into which gun this is.

Strongest Weapon in MWZ

The strongest weapon in MWZ appears to be the brand-new XRK Stalker Sniper Rifle. This gun is a free unlock from Sector A4 in the MW3 and Warzone Battle Pass.

This was found and shared by Reddit user AhmedMoeTV, and you can view just how quickly this Sniper can kill the elite boss zombies.

Of course, as seen in the video, you must have the XRK Stalker triple Pack-a-Punched and have it as a Legendary rarity to make it the “strongest weapon” in MWZ!

To get to Level 3 Pack-a-Punch, you can use Aetherium Crystals to speed up the process or spend 30,000 Essence at the Pack-a-Punch machine.

The best way to get your weapon to Legendary is by using a “Legendary Aether Tool.” You can acquire one by having the schematic, crafting one, and bringing it into a match, or finding one by completing Tier 2 and 3 contracts.

You won’t need to add any attachments to increase its power. According to Ahmed, all the attachments he has added only affect ADS, rechambering speed, and an increased magazine count.

Based on this information, here is the build they are likely using in the clip:

  • Optic: DF105 Reflex Sight
  • Magazine: 10 Round Mag
  • Barrel: Handler LKP Short Barrel
  • Bolt: XRK Stalker Light Bolt
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser

This will make this XRK Stalker one of MWZ’s strongest weapons! While it may not be the exact loadout, it is a close match.

It is also worth noting that they are not using the optimal Ammo Mod to take down elite bosses. They have Napalm Burst active, but you can deal even more damage if you use Shatter Blast.

Similar to the crossbow, this will likely receive a nerf soon, so make sure you hop in as quickly as possible to utilize its power and grind those Tier 3 contracts!
