After the debut of Urzikstan, players have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of another one-shot Sniper within Warzone. Luckily for them, following some major buffs in Warzone Season 2, the wait could be over.
Warzone Season 2 brings a ton of fresh content for players to dive into. This includes an exciting new crossover with The Walking Dead, newly introduced weapons such as the RAM-9 and BP50, and more.
Additionally, the second major update for the game also brought huge weapons buffs and nerfs destined to drastically shift the meta. Among them, a fan-favorite Sniper was drastically buffed by the changes, making it a one-shot meta contender.
XRK Stalker one-shot Sniper in Warzone Season 2
With the Warzone Season 2 update, Raven Software have drastically buffed the XRK Stalker Sniper Rifle to make it down with “one-shot to the head within its Max Damage Range.”
MW3’s XRK Stalker now joins the KATT-AMR, which was previously the only MW3 Sniper Rifle capable of one-shotting enemies in Warzone. In addition to its one-shot kill capability, the weapon also received an improvement to its maximum damage range which is now 50.8 meters.
This will allow players to use the fan-favorite Sniper which boasts great mobility and ADS speed compared to the KATT-AMR which will now also be able to eliminate enemies with just a shot to the head in Warzone.
While some may desire greater diversity for one-shot Sniper options, the change to the XRK Stalker is indeed promising for Sniper fans. It opens the door for potential additions of other one-shot Snipers in the future. However, it’s important to note that this is just speculation, so take it with a grain of salt.
In any case, be sure to use the best XRK Stalker loadout in Warzone to be able to destroy enemies during long-range combat in Season 2.
