The Best Warzone ZRG 20 mm Loadout | The Best Sniper Rifle In The Game

The ZRG is finally good and replaces the Kar98k and Swiss K31 in Warzone as the meta sniper rifle. We have the best ZRG 20 mm setup and loadout for you here.

The ZRG 20 mm was never really popular before because it was just way too slow, but thanks to the recent balance changes the ZRG is one of the few snipers left that can still one-hit-down from any range. Since the Swiss and Kar can no longer kill with a headshot at range, the slower, fatter snipers like the HDR, AX-50 and ZRG have become popular again. So let's take a look at what this big ol' BOCW sniper is capable of and what the best setup and loadout for the ZRG in Warzone is.

Since the ZRG is slow, we'll aim to boost the ADS as much as possible. You won't get a sniper like the pre-nerf Kar98k, but you can get the ZRG fast enough.

The suppressor allows us to remain invisible on the map when shooting and allows the weapon to wobble less, which compensates for the disadvantage of the barrel. The barrel increases our bullet velocity though, so it's worth it. While the grip and the laser provide the speed. Finally, we slam on a larger magazine. I don't think I need to explain further, three bullets are just not enough. If you can aim well, you can now get 5 kills before you have to reload.

The Grav is still a dark horse, but it's now slowly climbing up the meta ladder. Thanks to its good mobility, the Grav is currently the best assault rifle in Warzone at distances of 0 to 25 meters, which makes it the perfect sniper support. Of course, an AK-47 or XM4 still works great, but definitely check out the Grav as sniper support. Here's our in-depth Grav guide.

The Best Equipment for the ZRG 20 mm

TacticalHeartbeat Sensor

We recommend a typical sniper loadout here. Because the ZRG is a slow-moving weapon with plenty of punch, it's less suited to fast, quick-scope action. So you want to find a good sniper spot and defend it. Here Claymores are the absolute best choice to cover your back. And with the Heartbeat Sensor you can check buildings before you climb onto the roof, or you can slowly work your way into the last circle.

The Best Perks for the ZRG 20 mm

Perk 1Cold-blooded
Perk 2Overkill
Perk 3Combat Scout

The usual meta setup again. We need overkill to be able to carry both weapons, and we know the combo of Combat Scout and Cold-blooded well enough by now. Combat Scout marks live pings enemies and Cold-blooded counters this perk, so we don't get marked ourselves.

That was all there is to know about the ZRG. If you're looking for another strong sniper, try the HDR.
