Warzone Player Proves the SP-R 208 is Still the Best Sniper in the Game

Despite receiving heavy nerfs, the SP-R 208 is still the best sniper in Warzone, and a new clip proves it.

Sniper rifles in Warzone can be a little hit-or-miss, but there's one gun that never fails to deliver. The SP-R 208 is so good, in fact, that it's been through a round of nerfs and is still very much alive.

Capable of downing an enemy at tremendous range with next to no bullet drop, the sniper rifle is a real powerhouse. What's more, a single shot is often enough to wipe out incoming squad members.

In a new clip from Reddit user DreaminIsntMe, we can see the sniper in action. And it proves without a doubt that the SP-R 208 is still the best sniper in Warzone.

Proof That the SP-R 208 Is the Best Sniper in Warzone

Posting to the Warzone subreddit, DreaminIsntMe shows off their recent accomplishment with the SP-R 208. Obviously the player's skill is part of what makes the clip so good, but it's worth noting that no other sniper rifle could handle these enemies so easily.

As one of the game's final rings begins to close in, the Reddit user spots an enemy squad heading out of the gas. Despite the significant distance between the enemies and the Warzone fan's sniper spot, the SP-R 208 handles the opponent with ease.

In a very casual manner, the player slowly aims at each enemy and picks them off one by one. In the end, it only took 4 bullets to wipe the entire squad, leaving DreaminIsntMe with an easy quad kill.

According to the user, the footage was recorded just yesterday, safely after the weapon received its nerf. Players have been proving that despite the sniper no longer being a hit-scan gun, it's still incredibly powerful in the right hands.

SP-R 208 Best Loadout

The player claims that these attachments will net you the best results in Call of Duty: Warzone:

Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
Barrel: SP-R 26"
Laser: Tac Laser
Optic: Non-Variable Sniper Scope
Ammunition: .300 Norma Mag 5-R Mags

This looks very similar to our new Warzone post-nerf best SP-R 208 loadout, albeit with a small tweak. We'd say that anyone running this build will comfortably be experiencing the power that the SP-R 208 has to offer.

However, when it comes to zombie-killing, there's a different weapon that is quickly becoming the best in the game. Warzone Zombie Royale's best weapon makes killing undead easy and leads to a lot of players getting that easy Warzone Victory.
