Want to know what the best ZRG loadout is in Warzone? The ZRG 20mm is a sniper rifle designed to take out enemies from great distances, much further than the likes of the best Kar98k loadout and best Pelington 703 loadout. This weapon comes stocked with just three bullets per magazine, but each bullet is capable of downing an enemy from a single upper torso hit.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 has altered the way sniper rifles work by introducing a number of key buffs to this underutilised weapon class. The best Warzone ZRG loadout received plenty of improvements, including a huge boost to its max damage range, the ability to one-shot to the head at any range, and a head damage multiplier buff.

You first need to unlock the ZRG to use it in Warzone and Cold War. We highly recommend pairing the ZRG with one of the best SMGs in Warzone to protect yourself against flanking attacks. Here’s everything you need to build the best ZRG loadout in Warzone.

The best Warzone ZRG loadout is:

  • Sound Moderator
  • 43.9” Combat Recon
  • 5 Rnd
  • SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap

Sound suppression is essential in Warzone, especially for a long range sniper rifle as it allows you to avoid detection if you miss your target. The Sound Moderator muzzle includes sound suppression, increased bullet velocity and most importantly, faster aim down sight speed. The aim down sight speed makes the ZRG 20mm similar to the Swiss K31, except it can kill from any range. The added bullet velocity makes it easier to line up shots as you won’t have to account for as much bullet drop when firing from a distance.

To improve the ZRG’s long distance capabilities, we’ve gone for the 43.9” Combat Recon barrel which drastically improves the sniper rifle’s bullet velocity. This barrel does negatively impact the weapon’s aiming stability, but it isn’t enough to be a hindrance. The 5 Rnd magazine is almost essential on the ZRG as three bullets can become a real problem in the early game. When you have to deal with multiple enemies, you’ll be happy you have those additional shots.

The SWAT 5mw Laser Sight is crucial as it maximises the sniper’s aim down sight speed. Unfortunately, this means your enemies are able to see your laser as it’s always visible, but you can counter this by running with your secondary weapon. The laser sight also improves the ZRG’s aiming stability, perfect for sniping at a distance.

Finally, we’ve gone for the Airborne Elastic Wrap rear grip to add some much-needed flinch resistance to the sniper rifle. This attachment also improves aim down sight time, which never hurts on a heavy sniper rifle like this.

And that’s the best ZRG loadout in Warzone Pacific. Not sure what weapon you should pair with this lethal sniper rifle? We highly recommend the best MP5 loadout as this weapon is lethal at close range, even against assault rifles.
