Best DXR-1 Battlefield 2042 loadout
- SDB 10x
- Standard Issue / Extended Mag
- Factory Mounts
- Extended Barrel
This bolt-action rifle is probably one of the strongest in the game right now, simply due to the fact it has 95-rated 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. 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 Armour 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.
