Searching for the best HDR setup in Warzone? There wasn’t much of a debate over the best sniper rifle in Warzone for over a year due to the power of the Kar98k, but the update to Warzone Season 3 changed sniper rifles forever. For the first time in years, the new and improved HDR is rising up to claim the top spot.

This bolt-action sniper is capable of downing a fully armoured enemy in one shot, making it an extremely powerful piece of kit in the best Warzone loadouts. Getting the first shot onto an enemy squad can immediately put your team in a man advantage making the ensuing brawl much, much easier. So, what is the best HDR Warzone setup? We’ve assembled the following build with two key factors in mind: keeping that muzzle velocity and damage maxed out, and improving the handling stats.

The best HDR Call of Duty Warzone setup is :

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • 26.9″ HDR Pro
  • Tac Laser
  • FTAC Stalker-Scout
  • Variable Zoom Scope

The Monolithic Suppressor muzzle extends the HDR’s damage range and keeps you off the radar by providing sound suppression. Likewise, the 26.9″ HDR Pro barrel also improves the damage range while enhancing the weapon’s recoil control and bullet velocity. You do have to sacrifice some mobility for it, but this is a worthy trade-off.

As for the Tac Laser, this attachment improves your aiming stability significantly at the cost of having a visible laser pointing from your sniper rifle. You can turn the HDR into an aggressive sniper rifle by attaching the FTAC Stalker-Scout to improve the aim down sight speed, though this does come at the cost of aiming stability.

Finally, we’ve gone for the Variable Zoom Scope which allows you to toggle between 5.5x and 12.6x. This scope is perfect for the HDR as you can land long distance shots with ease.

And that’s everything you need to build the best HDR setup in Warzone. For your secondary weapon, you may want to consider one of the best SMGs in Warzone to blast your enemies away at close range.
