The best DMR Warzone loadout

There's no stopping this overpowered semi-automatic rifle

The DMR tactical rifle in Black Ops Cold War

Who’d have thought that we’d ever be seeing a semi-auto tactical rifle leading the meta in Call of Duty: Warzone. In the words of Paul Rudd, “not me.”

The DMR 14 tactical rifle is currently one of the best Warzone guns and has found its way into players’ loadouts for its ridiculous damage numbers and insane time-to-kill. Despite countless attempts by Treyarch to nerf the gun, the DMR 14 is still capable of two-tapping fully-armoured players, providing you can hit a headshot or two. This thing is nasty, and pro players and streamers are using it in abundance. The gun is even helping some of them set new Warzone kill records.

A proper nerf is now inevitable, so make good use of the DMR while you still can. Here’s our optimum build for the DMR 14 in Call of Duty: Warzone that’ll have you deleting squads in no time.

Best DMR Warzone loadout

  • Agency Suppressor
  • 20.8” Task Force
  • Axial Arms 3x Optic
  • Field Agent Foregrip
  • 30 Rnd Mag

This build exhibits what we think is the DMR in its ultimate form, and it comes courtesy of streamer ‘IceManIsaac’.

The damage output and the range on this thing is absolutely wild, and with that 3x scope you can zoom right in the heads that you’ll want to be hitting to delete enemies quicker than they can say “you’re hacking.”

Pair this DMR with a strong close range weapon (see our best MAC-10 Warzone loadout for some inspiration) and you’ve got yourself arguably the strongest loadout in the game right now.

Expect to also come up against a lot of these DMRs too, so be warned: don’t peek for too long.

For perks, we suggest using E.O.D. and Amped in your DMR Warzone loadout. For Perk two, go for Overkill if you want to run it with a MAC-10, or if you’ve got the hideously overpowered dual Diamatti pistols unlocked, pick them and choose Ghost as your Perk 2 instead.

For equipment, you can’t go wrong with a Heartbeat Sensor and C4.

Remember the DMR 14 is widely considered as one of the best Warzone guns right now, and it’s firmly in the crosshair of Treyarch’s balancing team. Expect more nerfs in the future, but for now, enjoy the power.
