Since their release, Sniper Rifles have been notoriously underpowered in Warzone 2, but IceManIsaac has discovered a loadout that he believes could take over the long-range meta.
The RPK and Fennec 45 have all become the go-to meta weapons in Warzone 2.
Many players feel they aren't sufficiently competitive at long range due to the fact that they can no longer maintain one-shot kills.
IceManIsaac, a Warzone 2 expert, has shown off a new Signal 50 loadout that might see a Sniper Rifle take over Al Mazrah.
Isaac claims that the build achieves a "crazy fast" ADS speed and bullet velocity, making it seem more like a snappy bolt-action rifle like the SP-X 80, while still retaining the punch of a Sniper over long range.
It's also semi-automatic, so players can always follow up their shots even if they don't down enemies immediately. This is crucial in long-range fights when the opposing player has three plates.
Isaac even admitted that he did not intend to share the loadout at the time, because it might "ruin the meta" in the same way as the fire shotguns in the original Warzone. However, he ultimately felt it was too much fun to keep it locked away.
Check out IceManIsaac's Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2 below.
In Warzone 2, IceManIsaac's best Signal 50 loadout
- Muzzle: Nilsound 90 Silencer
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
- Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4
- Ammunition: .50 Cal High Velocity
- Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip
The Forge Tac Delta 4 Optic and FSS OLE-V Laser are the key components for this Signal 50 loadout, which cuts off much of the Sniper's ADS time and makes it more maneuverable.
Next, he picked up the Nilsound 90 Silencer and.50 Cal High Velocity rounds, which dramatically increased the bullet velocity, making it much easier to hit shots over long distances and removing the need for a Barrel.
Isaac picked the SA Finesse Grip for one last boost to the ADS speed, as well as a significantly faster sprint-to-fire time. With this combination of attachments, the Signal 50 becomes a lighter, lighter, and punchier rifle.
Anyone who has become a fan of the RPK and Fennec meta should give this build a go ahead of Warzone 2 Season 2.
