The best M82 loadouts in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Barrett is back.

A classic Call of Duty sniper rifle has returned in Black Ops Cold War.

Recommended Videos

The M82 is the Barrett .50 Cal that we used to know—and the behemoth sniper rifle is as big and sluggish as everyone remembers. It’s the third and final sniper unlocked at the game’s launch.

It has best-in-class damage, but it also has a lot of recoil and is very slow to use. But it’s powerful and you can use that to your advantage by equipping it with some useful attachments in the Gunsmith.

These are the best M82 loadouts in Black Ops Cold War.
