Warzone content creator and competitor Swagg has claimed that the DMR rifle rifle – once Verdansk’s top dog by a huge margin – is back to its former glory following the Season 2 Reloaded update.
Fans of Warzone will be well accustomed to how the game’s weapon metas work, with each season (and major patch) usually followed by a quick reshuffle of weapon popularity as players figure out what’s best to secure wins.
Currently, the Vanguard MP40 occupies the top spot and has been for quite some time. With Season 3 on the way, we can anticipate that change and a new weapon making a run for first place.
For now, though, Season 2 is Reloaded, and according to Warzone creator Swagg, there’s another sniper rifle.
Swagg’s “Broken” DMR Warzone Gear in Season 2 Reloaded
In an April 9 YouTube video, Swagg explained that relative nerfs mean the DMR is “broken” again in Warzone, this time allowing players to drop enemies with unerring ruthlessness in Caldera.
Early on in the Black Ops Cold War lifecycle, the DMR emerged as the undeniably best weapon in the game, shooting enemies down incredibly quickly and consistently thanks to its accuracy and lack of recoil.
“They’ve nerfed so many long-range guns that you can raise guns like the DMR again,” he said. “In the right hands it’s so good now… Some say this gun is like the ogre, it won’t go away.”
Thankfully, the Warzone competitor has dropped his specific DMR gear, detailed below:
- End of a loop: Agency Suppressor
- Walk: 20.8 “Task Force”
- Optics: Axial arms 3x
- underflow: Field Agent Foregrip
- Magazine: 30 round
It certainly looks back at its Verdansk best at the hands of Swagg, and it rises on the list of Warzone’s most popular weapons – albeit still a ways off from where it once was.
Players need something more suitable for short distances when rocking the DMR, like the aforementioned MP40.
