In the fast-paced world of Warzone 2, expert players have uncovered a game-changing revelation: a sniper rifle, the SP-X 80, which possesses the ability to eliminate foes with just a single shot. This lethal capability is not a design feature but rather an unexpected glitch that has propelled this weapon to newfound popularity.
Traditionally, sniper rifles have held a pivotal role in the Warzone gaming universe. The Kar98K, famed for its blend of swiftness and firepower, is a prime example of this dominance. However, Warzone 2 initially saw a decline in sniper potency compared to its predecessor, Warzone 1.
This trend was reversed with the return of one-shot kills using incendiary rounds, bringing sniper rifles back into the spotlight. Yet, a recent wave of updates has seen their power curtailed, and they’ve been altogether removed from Ranked play.
Despite these changes, a remarkably potent configuration for the SP-X 80 has emerged that resurrects its one-shot prowess. Gaming experts, Metaphor and FaZe Testy, have lauded the SP-X 80 for its extraordinary power due to a glitch involving its incendiary rounds.
The potent setup proposed for the SP-X 80 includes the .300 incendiary rounds, Schlager Match rear grip, and the FSS OLE-V Laser. There are also some variations in barrel and stock choices, with the following setup being recommended:
- Barrel: 22.5′ Elevate-11
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
- Ammunition: .300 Incendiary
- Stock: Max DMR Precision
- Rear Grip: Schlager Match
Interestingly, while these setups are demonstrably potent, the SP-X 80 has yet to firmly establish itself in the game’s meta. Current WZRanked statistics place it as the 35th most popular weapon overall.
Looking ahead, it’s uncertain whether the SP-X 80 will soar in popularity, especially if this happens before the game’s developers apply a balancing nerf. Some players are holding their ground, advocating for the MCPR-3000 as the superior choice despite the rising star of the SP-X 80.
In the evolving arena of Warzone 2, the discovery of the SP-X 80’s unexpected potential offers players a thrilling new approach to gameplay, underscoring the game’s dynamic and unpredictable nature.
