There are a whole lot of new guns in Warzone, but NICKMERCS’ opinion on the best sniper in Season 1 is no surprise.
Warzone is the perfect game for sniping. With a huge battle royale map to explore, it feels so satisfying to be able to pick off enemies from a distance.
With the addition of Black Ops Cold War weaponry, sniping just got more complicated in Warzone. Now there are more long-range weapons than ever to take out the competition.
What’s more, the overpowered Warzone DMR 14 is equally capable of taking out enemies from a distance. But when it came to picking the best sniper in Warzone Season 1, NICKMERCS had a clear candidate in mind.
The Best Sniper in Warzone Season 1
According to Warzone professional streamer NICKMERCS, the best sniper in Warzone Season 1 is an easy pick.
In fact, the best sniper is so obvious that the Warzone fan isn’t even changing his pick from pre-Season 1.
“Even with all the new guns being added, and a couple new snipers at that… still don’t stand a chance,” NICKMERCS confirms.
He’s referring, of course, to the Kar98k. According to NICKMERCS, the Kar98k has always been the “fastest way to put someone down.”
Now it seems that even the best sniper class in Black Ops Cold War can’t compete with the Kar98k’s dominance in Warzone. And after watching the YouTuber’s insane game, we’d agree that this sniper is certainly the one to use.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to take advantage of Warzone’s new no scope glint glitch that Black Ops Cold War snipers enjoy. However, the stopping power on this rifle is more than enough to dominate the competition, regardless.
Best Kar98 Loadout in Warzone Season 1
NICKMERCS was kind enough to share his best Kar98k build with us, and the stats certainly look incredible. Here’s how to build the best Kar98k in Warzone Season 1:
Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
Laser: Tac Laser
Optic: Sniper Scope
Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
Using this Kar98 build, which NICKMERCS dubs ‘Old Growth’, players will be able to eliminate enemies at incredible range. And with a backup weapon like the new king of Warzone for close encounters, you’ll dominate the competition in no time.
Recently, one Warzone player discovered a genius way to counter the DMR, Diamatti pistols, and Mac-10. With this in mind, it could be the perfect match for Warzone’s best sniper in Season 1.
In other battle royale news, Warzone streamer HusKerrs just smashed the record for Solo vs Duos kills. We’d like to see how that user handles the Kar98k.
