The best Battlefield 2042 DXR-1 build is:

  • SDB 10x
  • Standard Issue / Extended Mag
  • Factory Mounts
  • Extended Barrel

This bolt-action rifle is one of the strongest in the game right now, simply due to its firepower. If you’re looking to provide sniping support to your team, the DXR-1 is the gun to pick. Here’s how to set it up.

For sights, we’d recommend picking one long-range and one medium-range scope to have in your Plus Menu. For the former, we’ve opted for the SDB 10x and for the latter, the Raven 4x.

Ammunition-wise, the Standard Issue / Extended Mag should sort you out for long engagements, but we’d recommend having Armor Piercing as your second option – just in case things get heated.

As there’s only one mount, you’re stuck with the factory ones for your third slot, but where things get interesting is in the barrel department. Here we’d recommend the Extended Barrel so that you can boost the gun’s bullet velocity. As a second option though, we’d recommend a suppressor to help you stay quiet when you need to preserve your position. The 6KU Suppressor is your best bet here.

Best DXR-1 Battlefield 2042 loadout specialist class

While there are plenty of classes and specialists to choose from, there are a couple that are better suited to the best DXR-1 Battlefield 2042 loadout. Oddly enough, Assault and Recon are the best starting points.

While you’d think Recon would be the go-to as it’s typically built for long-range and intelligence gathering, Assault works surprisingly well. Characters like Mackay and Sundance are great for finding good positions to bunker down. On the other hand, Recons like Casper and Paik are great for making sure you’ve always got the advantage.
