Best DMR 14 loadout and class setup in Call of Duty: Warzone

The best DMR 14 setup for Warzone

'How do I make my DMR 14 stand out?', you ask. Well, we have the answer. The DMR 14 is a powerful Warzone Pacific tactical rifle that's capable of rattling off shots as fast as you can pull the trigger. While it isn’t as dominant and oppressive as it once was in the old dreaded DMR meta, it’s still absolutely useable in the right hands. In the guide below I'll explain what combination will make the best DMR 14 in Warzone Pacific.

The best DMR 14 loadout in Warzone

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 20.8” Task Force
  • Optic: Royal & Kross 4x
  • Ammunition: Salvo 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap

The Task Force Barrel and Agency Suppressor up the DMR 14's bullet velocity and effective damage range, meaning it'll be easier to hit targets from afar as you won't have to lead your shots so heavily. Basically, it transforms this weapon into an absolute laser beam.

The Salvo 40 Rnd Fast Mag will ensure you've got plenty of shots to rattle off quickly as you'll chew through the DMR 14's ammo reserves fast if you're tapping the trigger. And it'll up your reload speed too which is essential if you're in an intense gunfight.

The Airborne Elastic Wrap helps speed up your ADS time. It's pretty brutal with the Agency Suppressor and Task Force barrel, so this is a big help..

I've opted for the Royal & Kross 4x optic as it zooms in just enough you'll be able to pick off targets from mid to long range, but doesn't go overboard. If you want something that'll be better at short to mid range, don't be afraid to swap this out for something a little smaller.

The DMR 14's recoil is quite severe, so the Field Agent Foregrip will reduce the kick nicely if you don't feel like the Airborne Elastic Wrap is necessary for speed and ADS.

Secondary weapon

We recommend an SMG, which will come in very handy when taking on targets at close quarters. You can't go wrong with the Mac 10 or MP5. For other options we have a comprehensive guide to the best SMGs in Warzone.

Best DMR 14 loadout with Perks and Equipment

Below I've put together a list of the best Perks and Equipment to take with the DMR 14:

  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

As is the case with most Warzone loadouts, take your pick from Cold Blooded, Double Time, or EOD here. I've gone for EOD, because you'll often get roasted by enemy explosives when you least expect it, and EOD can rescue you from certain death. However, if you fancy something different, the alternatives are helpful. For example, switch to Cold Blooded if you find yourself getting killed by enemies with thermal snipers constantly.

Overkill or Ghost are two strong options for your second Perk slot. As I've touched on above, Overkill grants you to ability to equip a primary weapon in your secondary slot. In this case I'd say it's worth doing, as the DMR 14 isn't an ideal weapon to clear out buildings or shred people at close range.

If you'd rather pick up your secondary weapon from a Loadout Drop or ground loot, though, Ghost will help you stay undetected whenever a UAV appears in the sky. An excellent attribute to have if you reach the latter stages of a match and the circle is super small.

Amped is an absolute staple in my books, as it lets you swap your weapons much faster than usual. This is great for Warzone's varied fights, especially if you suddenly need to close the gap or run out of ammo when peppering an enemy with your DMR 14.

Semtex is your best bet for an all-purpose lethal. If vehicles are getting you down though, try Thermite Grenades or Proximity Mines.

Lastly, Stun Grenades are brilliant for disorienting enemies so you can get an aggressive push on. Honestly, I can't get enough of them.

How to unlock the DMR 14 in Warzone

You can unlock the DMR 14 pretty easily, although it might be a tad time-consuming if you’ve only just bought the game. All you need to do is get to level 49 and you’ll have the gun unlocked forever though.

And that wraps up our guide to the best DMR 14 class loadout we've found so far in Call Of Duty: Warzone. Don't fret, for we have plenty more Warzone guides for you! Our best Warzone guns guide may be the perfect starting point, or you could try out one of the brand new weapons like the MG 82 LMG which took the meta by storm.
