Warzone player smashes World Record for longest sniper kill

Warzone maps have gotten bigger and bigger with points of interest, sightlines, and tons of high ground that would make Obi-Wan jealous. Thanks to all the grandiose setpieces in Warzone 3 it opens up some incredible sniping opportunities, and one player has taken full advantage of that by achieving the longest kill with a sniper rifle.

DeerArgreeable42 achieved an incredible feat and instantly took to the Warzone subreddit to show off the World Record sniper kill. Their elimination totaled 1.2 Kilometers in distance; a video accompanies the lofty accolade for any naysayers.

Thankfully the comments within the thread are filled with players congratulating DeerArgreeable42 for the achievement. Some wondered how they managed to even see the enemy in their scopes from such an unreal distance, but no answer was given so we have to assume they are simply just that good.

A few commenters poked fun at the typo of 'WW3' rather than MW3, offering their congratulations for being the best Sniper in World War 3 and hoping they receive a medal for their valor. Amidst the fun banter, everyone was positive and supportive of the new World Record.

DeerArgreeable42's sniper of choice was the XRK Stalker. However it was fitted with some interesting attachments that spawned some confusion. One notable upgrade to the sniper was the short barrel, an attachment that notoriously reduces range, but we are left without an explanation from the record holder. The best idea I've heard is that the bullet drop of the weapon equipped with the short barrel aligned with the range-finder sniper scope is better than a regular barrel.

To put the incredible distance into perspective: DeerArgreeable42 managed to hit a moving target almost a mile away from their current position. In Warzone's meta of slide canceling, diving, and bouncing against every surface in the immediate area, the achieved shot in the video is all the more impressive.
