How to get one shot Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 & DMZ

Sniper Rifles are finally viable in BR.

With the Season 3 update for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and DMZ, the game received a major weapon balancing patch. Sniper Rifles received a huge buff after the developers decided to give them back their one-shot kill potential. However, you will have to use a specific attachment for this.

How to use one-shot kill Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 & DMZ

To make the Sniper Rifle a one-shot kill weapon in Warzone 2, you must equip the explosive rounds on it. Here's how to equip this special attachment on your weapon:

  • From the Weapons menu, go to Custom Loadouts and select a compatible Sniper Rifle of your choice.
  • Go to Gunsmith for the weapon and select the Ammunition attachment type.
  • Find and select the Explosive ammo type and your Sniper Rifle should now be ready to use as a single-shot kill weapon. This ammo type may be available by different names such as .300 Mag Explosive, .50 Cal Explosive, and .408 Explosive.

Which Sniper Rifles can one-shot kill in Warzone 2?

Currently, not all Sniper Rifles in the game have the potential of downing a fully plated enemy in a single headshot. Only the following bolt-action snipers can be customized to be used as a one-shot kill weapon:

  • MCPR-300
  • Victus XMR
  • FJX Imperium

Although the SP-X 80 and LA-B 330 are bolt-action snipers, they don't have any explosive ammo attachment, hence, they can't have the one-shot kill capability. On the other hand, the Signal 50 is a continuous-firing sniper without the bolt-action mechanic which makes it unsuitable for this power.
