Modern Warfare’s SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle has been largely forgotten, but it actually remained a top sniper in the Warzone Pacific Season 1 meta.
Sniping is more popular than ever in Warzone Pacific, with fan favorites Modern Warfare Kar98k and Swiss K31 taking up the majority of sniper rifle loadouts. Vanguard sniper rifles haven’t found the same popularity, with players clamoring for major buffs.
However, there is an underutilized Modern Warfare sniper that is just as good, if not better, than the Kar98k and Swiss K31 – the SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle. Here’s why it’s so good and which attachments you should be using.
Popular FPS YouTuber Westie recently highlighted the SP-R 208, saying it’s “meta again” and actually prefers it to the hugely popular Swiss K31.
The SPR-208 belongs to the Marksman Rifle category of Modern Warfare, which makes it much faster than a traditional sniper rifle such as the HDR. But his stats are also not to be sniffed at, as he has faster ball speed than the Kar98k and Swiss K31.
According to TrueGameDataWestie’s SP-R 208 loadout has a bullet speed of 1251 m/swhich puts it in front of 1110 m/s of Kar98k and the Switzerland’ 1102 m/s. This faster bullet speed makes sniping much easier, where you barely need to account for bullet travel time.
You can also remove the Monolithic Suppressor to take advantage of the focus perk, which greatly reduces your character’s flinch when getting shot. With highly sought-after changes made to thrill in the Warzone Pacific update, the Focus Perk is perfect for keeping you on target.
Best SP-R 208 Warzone loadout
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: SP-R 208
- Laser: Tackle
- Optical: Solozero SP-R 28mm
- Magazine: Mags .300 Norma Mag 5-R
Westie’s SP-R 208 construction maximizes his bullet speed, making him incredibly easy to use in long-range combat in Caldera and Rebirth Island.
Combining the Monolithic Suppressor and SP-R 208 barrel gives a huge speed boost, but the .Mag 300 Norma Mag 5-Rs are what sets it apart. Using this loader increases speed by an additional 33%, bringing it to this impressive 1251 m/s statistical
Then the Tackle improves the ADS time to facilitate quickscoping, and the Solozero SP-R 28mm Optic is your standard sniper scope.
