Sniping and Call of Duty go hand in hand. And sniper rifles are popular weapons in large maps of battle royale games.

So when Call of Duty dropped the popular Warzone battle royale, it makes sense that sniper rifles would move to the forefront. The weapon meta in the game has changed numerous times, but sniper rifles have always been a mainstay in loadouts for their consistency.

Warzone isn't exactly a quickscoper's paradise, though. If you run around in the battle royale trying to hit trick shots, you're probably going to get destroyed. But if you want to run with a sniper rifle to grab some kills at a distance, we've got some ideas for you.

The sprawling hills of Verdansk are rife with opportunities for some long-range sniper shots. Thankfully, there are a few good weapons to use when you want to re-enact scenes from Shooter with Mark Wahlberg.

Here's the best sniper rifles, and their best loadouts, to use in Warzone.
