The Swiss K31 sniper rifle has always been seen as the inferior little brother to the Kar98k in Call of Duty: Warzone – however, you may want to rethink that and consider swapping the Swiss into your sniper class.
In Warzone Season 5, the Swiss K31 is still one of the best Warzone guns, benefitting from changes to the optics of Cold War-era weapons, on top of some previous statistical buffs. Now, sniping enthusiasts can create as many FaZe Clan-worthy montages with the Swiss as they can with the Kar98k, which has ruled the roost for so long.
So with the Swiss K31 creeping its way into the Warzone meta, the question arises about which attachments, perks, equipment, and second weapon should you chuck into the perfect loadout for it? Well we’re here with the answers, so that you can finally change up your sniper of choice in Warzone and give the ol’ faithful Kar a bit of a break.
This is the best Swiss K31 Warzone loadout we’ve found for Season 5.
Swiss K31 Warzone loadout
- GRU Suppressor
- 24.9” Combat Recon
- SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
- Bruiser Grip
- Serpent Wrap
Arguably the best Swiss K31 sniper loadout in Warzone is this one, which boasts super fast ADS times, decent rate of fire, and (finally) a standard scope that is clean and viable to use.
The emphasis on improving ADS times and mobility in this build is to bring it closer in line to the best Kar98k Warzone loadout, but if you want a bit more ammo on board (in case, you know, you whiff a couple of shots) then you could swap out the Bruiser Grip for a 7 Rnd Mag.
With this being a sniper, you’ll need something to cover you in close and middle-distance fights. For that you’ve got plenty of great options, ranging from SMGs to ARs, but there are a few sniper support builds in the following guides that we recommend using:
For your perks, Double Time, Overkill, and Amped would make for an effective line-up of perks.
For tactical equipment, most use a Heartbeat Sensor, but Stun Grenades can come in very handy when running a sniper class. For your lethal, Semtex is the most popular choice, but Thermite Grenades are also handy for stopping teams pushing you.
So, after a long old wait, we finally have a sniper that can rival the Kar98k. This Swiss K31 Warzone loadout certainly gives its Modern Warfare-era rival a run for its money in Season 5.
