When it comes to the top snipers in Call of Duty: Warzone, Modern Warfare’s Kar98k is the preferred head-popper by players. However, Black Ops Cold War now has the Swiss K31 sniper in its arsenal, and it looks, on the surface at least, like a carbon copy of the Kar98k.
But can it go scope to scope with its close relative on the battlegrounds of Verdansk? It’s still early days in Season 3, but there are already some strong Swiss K31 builds that mean it’s definitely a viable choice for sniping enthusiasts. With the Swiss being obtained relatively early in the Season 3 Battle Pass (tier 31) and dropping from loot crates, expect to see plenty of players trying out the new sniper in the early stages of Season 3.
From the early opinions of YouTubers and streamers, the Swiss is sitting pretty close to the top of the pile when it comes to snipers, and similarities between it and the Kar98k have already been drawn.
Here we share a Swiss K31 Warzone class built by ‘Metaphor’, which we think is the best around at the moment.
Best Swiss K31 Warzone loadout
- GRU Suppressor
- 24.9” Combat Recon
- Axial Arms 3x Optic
- Bruiser Grip
- Serpent Wrap
Arguably the best Swiss K31 sniper loadout in Warzone is this one, which has not only dominated the small Rebirth Island map with its quick ADS times, but could also hold its own as a long-distance sniper in the vast battlefield of Verdansk.
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 Metaphor does also point out that using the standard scope and equipping the Fast Mag attachment instead will make this gun even more suited to nailing those crazy montage clips.
With this being a sniper, you’ll need something to cover you in close quarters fights. To keep on brand you could pair this with the other new Season 3 Warzone weapon, the PPSh-41. Our best PPSh-41 Warzone loadout has you covered for the best build.
Double Time, Overkill, and Amped would make for an effective lineup of perks. A Heartbeat Sensor and Thermite Grenades are also a go-to combination for your equipment.
We’ll be sure to update this guide if a more OP Swiss build is uncovered by the community.
