Best Long Range Loadouts In Warzone 2

With players exploring the tons of content available in Warzone 2, it's only natural for some weapons to rise in popularity within the meta for their superior performance and lethality. When it comes to long-range weapons, you have many options to choose from, and that can make picking the best weapon a difficult task. 

Naturally, some weapons are better than others, and long-range weapons are no exception. So in this article, will be discussing the top 5 best long-range weapons and their respective loadouts based on the current Warzone 2 meta. 

The Best 5 Long-Range Loadouts In Warzone 2 Right Now

We've selected our list of the top 5 best long-range weapons and their loadouts in Warzone 2 with the help of YouTuber Warzone Loadout, so if you found the list helpful, please consider subscribing to their channel. We've also embedded their full video analyzing and demoing each weapon below for your convenience. 

RPK

Statistically, the RPK is considered the best long range-weapon in Warzone 2. (Picture: YouTube / Warzone Loadout)
  • Stock - Heavy Support Stock
  • Muzzle - Polarfire-S
  • Underbarrel - VX Pineapple
  • Optic - VLK 4.0 Optic
  • Rear Grip - Demo-X2 Grip

Although it isn't as versatile, the RPK LMG is considered to be, statistically, the best long-range weapon in Warzone 2's current meta, delivering high damage per shot and being stable to use from long distances. 

Thanks to the Polarfire-S muzzle, we receive some buffs to our damage range and with the VX Pineapple Underbarrel and Heavy Support Stock, we gain some much-needed stability and recoil control as this is an LMG. Lastly, the Demo-X2 Grip gives us even more recoil control and the VLK 4.0 Optic is our preferred choice, but you can choose any optic that you prefer. 

TAQ-56

The TAQ-56 is also considered one of the best long-range weapons in the game. (Picture: YouTube / Warzone Loadout)
  • Barrel - 17.5" Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Muzzle - Echoline GS-X
  • Underbarrel - VX Pineapple
  • Optic - Schlager 3.4X
  • Magazine - 60-Round Mag

If the RPK didn't exist, then the TAQ-56 Assault Rifle would most definitely take the top spot as the best long-range weapon in the game thanks to its insane damage over long distances, versatility, and how easy the weapon is to use even for beginners. 

The 17.5" Tundra Pro Barrel provides an increase in damage range and accuracy and the Echoline GS-X Muzzle gives us some extra recoil control and suppresses our shots. The VX Pineapple provides even more recoil control and steadiness, and we've added the 60-Round Mag to account for the number of bullets you'll be spraying, with the last attachment being the Schlager 3.4X as our preferred scope. 

Kastov 762

Although not as powerful, the Kastov is a powerful long-range weapon in Warzone 2. (Picture: YouTube / Warzone Loadout)
  • Barrel - KAS-10 584mm Barrel
  • Muzzle - Echoline GS-X
  • Underbarrel - VX Pineapple
  • Optic - Schlager 3.4X
  • Magazine - 40-Round Mag

Similarly to the TAQ-56, the Kastov Assault Rifle is also an extremely versatile weapon that packs a massive punch and is holding the number 3 spot firmly. Thanks to the KAS-10 584mm Barrel we can push the gun's damage range and lethality even further, and the Echoline GS-X balances the scale by keeping the weapon stable and adding some needed recoil control. 

We then have the VX Pineapple once again to add some extra recoil control, making this weapon even deadlier from a distance, and the 40-Round Mag to avoid needless reloads, and lastly, were opting for the  Schlager 3.4X as the optic for this loadout. 

EBR-14

While it is considered to be a bit inaccurate, the EBR-14 is still a viable choice for long-range weaponry in Warzone 2. (Picture: YouTube / Warzone Loadout)
  • Barrel - 22" Boremaster Barrel
  • Muzzle - Husher-65 Silencer
  • Rear Grip- FSS Gen. 7 Grip
  • Optic - Luca Bandera Scope
  • Magazine - 20-Round Mag

Next, we have the EBR-14 Marksman Rifle, which sports insane firepower (possibly the most powerful in the current meta) and versatility, but it falls short somewhat on the accuracy front, being very snappy and sometimes hard to control. So we've gone with the 22" Boremaster Barrel and the Husher-65 Silencer for increased recoil control, smoothness, and overall bullet velocity.

Then we have the FSS Gen. 7 Grip, giving us faster ADS and sprint-to-fire speeds, allowing us to zero in on targets much faster. Then we have the 20-Round Mag which is needed for any Marksman Rifle to avoid continuous reloads, and the Luca Bandera Scope for its two zoom options, letting you spot enemies from further away and put them down with ease. 

Lachmann-556

Although it's last on the list, the Lachmann-556 is still a good choice for long-range players. (Picture: YouTube / Warzone Loadout)
  • Barrel - 15.9" Lachmann RAPP Barrel
  • Muzzle - Echoline GS-X
  • Underbarrel - VX Pineapple
  • Optic - Schlager 3.4X
  • Magazine - 60-Round Mag

We then have the Lachmann-556 Assault Rifle, not by any means the worst weapon you could choose, as it has tons of versatility and stability, but lacks a bit of the punch that other weapons on this list are sporting. So to alleviate some of its issues, we've gone with the 15.9" Lachmann RAPP Barrel which boosts the weapon's ranged damage massively and adds some extra recoil control to balance things out.

Then we have the Echoline GS-X to boost recoil smoothness and make the gun more accurate over distances to account for its potential lack of firepower. The VX Pineapple will be equipped to aid in recoil control for this same reason, and lastly, the 60-Round Mag will be added for ample ammunition and the Schlager 3.4X will be our preferred Optic for this loadout.
