Looking for a great Warzone 2 SP-R 208 loadout? Marksman rifles are one of the strongest weapons in MW2 and they’re just as powerful in Warzone 2, though you do need to use the right attachments. One-shot kills are impossible if your opponent has three armour plates, but the sheer speed of the SP-R 208 ensures that follow-up shots will be easier than with the more cumbersome sniper rifles.

The SP-R 208 is strong thanks to its lightning-fast aim-down sight speed and ability to kill enemies in the free PC game with a single upper body shot at close and medium range. The damage drop-off, armour, and long sightlines of Warzone 2 mean you’re not going to get one-shot kills, even to the head, but as we saw with the Kar-98k in the first Warzone, that doesn’t mean it’s not any good. Provided your aim is sharp, this is easily one of the best Warzone 2 marksman rifle in the game right now.

Here’s the best Warzone 2 SP-R 208 loadout:

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S
  • Barrel: 23.5″ Fluted R-67
  • Optic: FTAC Charlie7
  • Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity

While suppressing shots isn’t really essential, the Polarfire-S adds the most damage range and velocity to your shots of any SP-R 208 muzzle, so it’ll be very easy to hit moving targets at range and take a chunk off armour from them. The 7.62 High Velocity ammo and 23.5″ Fluted R-67 barrel are there for similar reasons, extending your effective damage so you can compete with true snipers.

The scope really is down to personal preference, but as you’ll be fighting best up to long-range then we suggest taking a scope that’s roughly 6x or above, but not above 10x. The FTAC Charlie7 fits the bill perfectly, but the 4x VLK works better if you intend on close-range combat. Lastly, we’ve added the ZRL T70 Pad Extension stock to improve mobility a tiny bit.

If you’re wondering what Warzone 2 guns and kit to pair this rifle with then we suggest a fast-firing SMG for close-range brawls. Our best Warzone 2 Vaznev-9k loadout gives you one of the fastest-killing guns in the game with very little recoil to boot.
