5. Chimera and Signal 50

  • Chimera Build
    • Muzzle: TY-LR8
    • Barrel: 10" SA Phoenix
    • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro

These are the best loadouts that I suggest using in Season 5 of Warzone 2. There are some other guns like M4, Lachmann-762, RPK, Vel 46, and PDSW 528 that you can also give a try. The newly added FR Avancer is also a good sniper support weapon, but not as good as the Chimera.

Warzone 2 Season 5 Best Perks

Here are the perks that I believe are the best ones to add to your perk package.

  • Perk 1: Overkill (essential if you want to carry two primary weapons)
  • Perk 2: Double Time / Bomb Squad
  • Perk 3: Fast Hands
  • Perk 4: Birdseye / High Alert

After the update, Bomb Squad prevents you from getting down even if you're stuck with a lethal. This makes it a great option alongside Double Time. Fast Hands is a no-brainer as the third perk, but you can also pick Restock. Finally, it's a toss-up between Birdseye and High Alert. Professional players have been using Birdseye a lot recently, but I think High Alert is equally good.

I haven't listed Ghost here because you can find and equip Stealth Vest to stay hidden from UAVs. Also, consider using Quick Fix if you're playing resurgence game modes on Vondel and Ashika Island.
