Call of Duty players dreaming of using classic CoD guns in Warzone had their prayers answered alongside season three of Modern Warfare 2 with the introduction of the FJX Imperium.
One of the all-time great and memorable CoD guns, also known as the Intervention, has transitioned from one MW2 to the next. The 2009 MW2 sniper rifle was a favorite of players everywhere and a mainstay in montages across the globe. It’s back with a vengeance.
The bolt-action sniper is a beauty, and it’s made even better by customizing it in the Gunsmith, immediately making it one of the best sniper rifles in Warzone and MW2 alike.
Here’s the best loadout for the FJX Imperium in Warzone season five.

Why this is the best FJX Imperium loadout in Warzone
This loadout for the sniper rifle formerly known as the Intervention is lightning-quick, and it hits like a mini-nuke to the chest or head, especially if you swap out the High Velocity rounds for the Explosive attachment.
Starting in season three, bolt-action sniper rifles with the Explosive ammo attachment can one-shot enemies to the head. But we’ve found the High Velocity rounds offer a more consistent experience without losing bullet velocity and penetration.
As always, I love to pair up this sniper rifle with a close-range SMG or even an LMG for mid-range engagements to better your chances of finding success in Warzone, depending on which map you’re playing.

In the end, though, the FJX Imperium is a blast from the past and these attachments will be giving you flashbacks to the winter of 2009.
Best perk package for FJX Imperium in Warzone
- Perk Package: Double Time, Battle Hardened, Focus, Ghost
You can’t go wrong with this perk package for any sniper loadout in Warzone. You’ll always want to be on the move quickly and quietly, but Focus is a special addition when compared to other common perk packages to help you rein in your shots when sniping at long range.

Best equipment for FJX Imperium in Warzone
- Tactical: Stun grenade
- Lethal: Claymore or Semtex
Stun grenades and flash grenades are all you should be running in your tactical slot in Warzone simply because they’re both just way too strong to deny. Your lethal choice depends more on your playstyle, and more aggressive players grab the Semtex instead of the Claymore.
