What is the best Warzone 2 marksman rifle? For those with a fast trigger finger and deadly accuracy, marksman rifles offer something unparalleled in Al-Mazrah.

With the precision (and often the damage) of snipers but with a faster, semi-automatic rate of fire, marksman rifles are excellent at deleting opponents in mid-to-long-range gunfights. Some of them are so good that they are widely considered some of the best Warzone 2 guns for the whole arsenal, rather than just within their own category. But which ones are the best? Read on to find out.

Best marksman rifle in Warzone 2

Right now, the best Warzone 2 marksman rifle is the SP-R 208. The Lockwood MK2 and the EBR-14 are also great choices, though.

SP-R 208

Thanks to its super high-damage, and that fact it’s fairly easy to level up, the SP-R 208 is arguably the most popular marksman rifle in Warzone 2. It can be built to have either excellent range for long distance shootouts, or to have snappy ADS speeds that make it surprisingly effective at close-range too.

Check out our Warzone 2 SP-R 208 loadout for our favourite build.

Lockwood MK2

Despite the slightly old-school looks, the Lockwood MK2 still delivers a modern day punch. It’s a bit slower when it comes to fire rates, and similarly to the SP-R above, it leans more towards being a traditional sniper on this list, but for some players it hits just the right note – especially with the right optic bolted on top.

Take a look at our Warzone 2 Lockwood MK2 loadout guide for a great class.


Unlike the other two entries, the EBR-14 boasts a much higher rate of fire, allowing you to deal some serious damage in a short space of time. If you focus on using attachments that help with accuracy and range as well, then it can compete with the Lockwood and the SP-R at most ranges.

So that’s our rundown of the best Warzone 2 marksman rifles. These weapons offer accuracy and damage stats that can compete with those of some of the best Warzone 2 sniper rifles, so should never be discounted from the Warzone 2 meta.
