The Call of Duty battle royale meta has kicked into high gear, and gamers everywhere are looking for the best MTZ Interceptor loadout in Warzone.

It’s quite interesting to see just how different Warzone’s meta is from CoD multiplayer. A gun that may be irrelevant in Hardpoint could be dominant in battle royale, and that makes everything worth using and leveling up if you’re a hardcore CoD gamer.

Those who leveled up the MTZ Interceptor for Warzone’s Modern Warfare 3 integration have been feasting with the gun’s wildly fast time-to-kill. While the Interceptor may fall by the wayside in MW3 MP, it’s really, really strong in BR.

This is the best loadout for the MTZ Interceptor in MW3 Warzone.

Sheer dominance is how many would describe the MTZ Interceptor in MW3 Warzone. Its two-shot potential was greatly nerfed during season one, but it’s still really strong, and definitely worth using at long-range.

Best MTZ Interceptor attachments in MW3 Warzone

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor L
  • Barrel: MTZ Blackthorn Barrel
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Ammunition: 7.62x51mm High Grain Rounds
  • Magazine: 20 Round Mag

It didn’t take long for Warzone sweats to find out that the infamous “DMR meta” had returned in MW3 Warzone. These attachments made the MTZ Interceptor a powerful beast with the capability of killing an enemy in two headshots before its nerf, but it’s still quite strong in the right hands.

With a 20 Round Mag, multiple headshots are no big deal. And the 7.62x51mm High Grain Rounds help to make it possible by increasing both Bullet Velocity and Damage Range, meaning you can truly disrupt enemies from a far distance in Urzikstan.

The MTZ Blackthorn Barrel also heavily increases Bullet Velocity and Range and Aiming Idle Sway, both of which are huge when it comes to semi-auto weapons in battle royale, so this setup is rife with opportunities for picking off enemies at long range.

Best MTZ Interceptor perks and equipment in MW3 Warzone

  • Perk Package
    • Perk One: Double Time
    • Perk Two: E.O.D.
    • Perk Three: Tempered
    • Perk Four: Ghost
  • Secondary weapon: WSP Swarm or Striker
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

This setup for your Warzone class should have you covered for a variety of situations, especially if you back up your MTZ Interceptor with a meta SMG like the WSP Swarm or Striker for when enemies approach you or you need to push into close-quarters environments like buildings around Urzikstan.

Double Time helps with mobility, while E.O.D. and Tempered can help keep your health up in a couple of different ways. And along with its suppressor, Ghost will help any MTZ Interceptor user stay off of enemy radar.
