Warzone 2 sniper rifles were briefly able to one-shot kill, thanks to a new trick discovered with Incendiary ammunition.

Here are two of the best loadouts you could use to take out enemies with a single bullet:

One-Shot Kill MCPR-300 Sniper Loadout
Update (24/02/23)
Raven Software appears to have nerfed the Incendiary ammo in Warzone 2 to nerf one-shot kill snipers. These loadouts will no longer kill in a single shot, despite the added fire damage.

With that in mind, here are the best meta sniper loadouts in Warzone 2 right now in Season 2! They might not be one-shot kills, but they’re the best the game has to offer.

Best One-Shot Victus XMR Loadout in Warzone 2

  • Muzzle: Bruen Counter-Ops – Unlocked at Victus XMR Level 21
  • Barrel: Mach 8 33.5 Super – Unlocked at Victus XMR Level 3
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW – Unlocked at STB 556 Level 5
  • Magazine: 9 Round Mag – Unlocked at Victus XMR Level 24
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Incendiary – Unlocked at Victus XMR Level 18

Partner this Victus XMR with one of the best SMG loadouts in Warzone Season 2 and you’ll be dominating Al Mazrah.

Can Snipers One-Shot Kill in Warzone 2?

No, as of the latest Season 2 update, sniper rifles cannot one-shot kill in Warzone 2 even with Incendiary ammunition.

The maximum amount of damage able to be done with a single shot is locked to 249 (1 less than a fully-armored player’s total HP), and fire damage will no longer secure the kill.

It seems that the ability to use Incendiary ammo to one-shot kill was simply a bug. As much as players have been demanding one-shot snipers return in Warzone 2, Activision is yet to give us a sniper capable of dealing 250 damage outright.

By utilizing Incendiary ammo, players were sacrificing some bullet velocity, but eliminating an enemy in a single shot was a worthwhile trade.

You won’t find either of the above loadouts on our Warzone 2 meta weapons tier list but that doesn’t make them bad options. Despite Activision patching out the Incendiary ammo workaround, these are still powerful snipers in their own right.

Thanks to JGOD for providing us with the best one-shot sniper loadouts in Warzone 2!
