Looking for the best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2? The Signal 50 has carved out quite the niche within the realms of Warzone 2 Snipers. Despite being the heaviest and slowest-handling of its kin, the Signal 50 also fires by far the fastest. It's this proficiency at delivering quick follow-up shots that makes it one of the best Sniper Rifles in Warzone 2 - and we're here today to make it even better.
In the below guide you'll learn how to put together the best possible Signal 50 loadout and class setup in Warzone 2. We'll walk you through each of the five attachments in turn and why they work so well together; and we'll also run through some options for the best secondary weapon to use alongside the Signal 50 in Warzone 2.
Best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2
Here's the best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2:
- Barrel: 29" TV Kilo-50 (Unlock at Signal 50 lvl 15)
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 (Unlock at Lachmann-762 lvl 6)
- Magazine: 7 Round Magazine (Unlock at Signal 50 lvl 10)
- Stock: FSS Echo Stock (Unlock at Signal 50 lvl 4)
- Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip (Unlock at Signal 50 lvl 20)
Our pick for the best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2 pushes the effective range of the weapon considerably, while also lowering the recoil to help land those quick follow-up shots that make the Signal 50 so strong in the current meta.
The 29" TV Kilo-50 Barrel is the longest and heaviest on offer, but it's well worth it for the increased range, bullet velocity, and recoil control, as these are more or less the three most important stats to increase for the Signal 50.
We've followed this up with the FTAC Ripper 56 Underbarrel and the FSS Echo Stock, both of which reduce recoil and idle sway to help you make every shot count. You don't need a Warzone 2 Optic attachment for the Signal 50, so you have the slots to spare for this double-whammy.
We've then added the 7 Round Mag attachment to give you a couple more shots to play with before having to reload, which again synergises very well with the Signal 50's high fire rate. All this lowers the handling speed of the rifle quite a lot, so our final attachment is the SA Finesse Grip, to help increase the ADS speed to a more acceptable level.
When combined, these attachments turn the Signal 50 into the best possible version of itself in our opinion. Extreme range and the ability to very quickly chain together snipes over long distances without much recoil or idle sway to contend with; these are two very strong traits for a sharpshooter to have in Warzone 2.
Best Signal 50 loadout secondary weapon
The Kastov-74U is our ideal pick of secondary weapon for this Signal 50 loadout setup. One of the best Assault Rifles in Warzone 2, the Kastov-74U packs the stopping power of a Battle Rifle with the handling of an SMG, and yes, it's as good as it sounds.
If the Kastov-74U leaves you a little too vulnerable at mid-range, then a more flexible alternative would be the STB 556, an extremely accurate and powerful Assault Rifle that can handle itself at any range that the Signal 50 cannot.
Best Signal 50 class setup: Perks and Equipment
We think the Specter perk package (Ghost, Double Time, Tracker, Spotter) offers the best set of perks for this Signal 50 build. We'll break down each perk below, but we think this package is the most versatile, helping you avoid or push enemies depending on the situation. Since you can't customise your perk package in Warzone 2, Specter offers the best set for giving you a boost in any scenario.
Ghost is a top-notch perk that allows you to hide from enemy UAVs, which gives you a massive survivability boost throughout a Warzone 2 match. >However, that doesn't mean you need to sit back and hide from enemies. Double Time and Tracker help you play more aggressively, hunting down enemies by following their footsteps with some extra speed. If those footprints lead you into a building, Spotter will reveal any dangerous equipment, such as claymores, that could spell a quick death.
For your lethal equipment, we recommend using C4, as you can quickly toss it towards enemies or a vehicle for some easy kills. In your tactical slot, use the Heartbeat Sensor to know when enemies are getting close to your sniping perch. This should help you prepare for any unexpected sneak attacks, and will also prove incredibly useful for revealing enemy locations if you manage to survive until the last few circles.
That concludes our guide on how to put together the best Signal 50 loadout in Warzone 2's long-ranged and open Al Mazrah environments. If you want to see how the Signal 50 compares to other options, check out our Warzone 2 best guns tier list or our Warzone 2 weapon stats guide.
