A Warzone 2 expert claims to have discovered a "secret" loadout for the X12 pistol, which makes the weapon's range and damage so great that it feels like a DMR.
Season 1 of Warzone 2: Reloaded is coming to an end, and the season's meta has been pretty stagnant, with the RPK and Fennec separating themselves from the rest.
Season 2 of Warzone will try to shake things up, with various balance adjustments and new weapons that will spice up the meta and make things interesting. Despite the RPK and Fennec dominating, players seem to still find interesting weapons and loadouts to use.
Metaphor, a popular Warzone 2 content creator, has created a "secret" DMR pistol loadout for the X12, which they claim does "a lot of damage" and is "really fun to use."
This is Metaphor's X12 DMR pistol loadout if you want a unique and fun weapon to use in Warzone 2 before the big update.
Metaphor's Warzone 2 X12 DMR pistol loadout
- Barrel: XRX Sidewinder-6 Slide
- Trigger Action: XRX Sidewinder-6 Slide
- Ammunition: 9mm Overpressured +P
- Stock: XRX Pistol Stock
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
In Warzone 1, the DMR was an extremely powerful mid-range weapon that would literally crush players. It was eventually nerfed, but the player base's memory of how powerful the weapon was continues to live on.
The most essential components in this build are the XRX Sidewinder-6 Slide barrel, which boosts the weapon's recoil control and bullet velocity, and the 9mm Overpressured +P ammunition, which causes the target to flinch.
Metaphor's DMR pistol loadout for Warzone 2's X12 is enhanced with the XRX Pistol Stock and Cronen Mini Pro optic.
This X12 loadout, according to Metaphor, "does a lot of damage if you're hitting your shots," but you want to "stay mid-range" with it, as it isn't very effective up-close.
