Need a hand setting up the ideal SP-R 208 loadout? We've got you covered. The SP-R 208 is the newest piece of gear added to the Marksman Rifle category in Warzone Pacific, and it's an absolute treat. Fans of the Kar98k will immediately fall in love with this weapon, as it boasts massive damage at pretty much all ranges, as well as a great deal of customisation potential. For this reason, it can be tough to kit it out optimally, so here's our in-depth SP-R 208 loadout guide to help you get the best possible kit on this exciting new marksman rifle.
Best SP-R 208 loadout in Warzone
Without further ado, here's our favourite SP-R 208 loadout in Warzone so far. While you can go around with a Solozero SP-R 28mm sniper scope for longer range encounters, I prefer the lack of optic glint and more versatile nature of the VLK 3.0x Optic. Aside from that, I love this loadout for all ranges, dishing out massive damage in just a few shots.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: SP-R 26"
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Optic: Solozero SP-R 28mm
- Ammunition: .338 Lapua Mag
Because of the SP-R 208's vast amount of customisation potential, it's difficult to pinpoint the exact perfect loadout. This is my favourite way to run this gun. The .338 Lapua Mag increases your damage to the point where you're taking massive chunks out of your enemies' health at all ranges with body shots, even if they're armoured up. You can actually one-shot foes to the upper torso if they have an armour plate on, making this a great choice to whack out when finishing off enemies trying to armour up in a gunfight.
Of course, in Warzone, the longest barrel is a must, upping your already-impressive damage range to even further, but more importantly improving your bullet velocity. In Verdansk, this is vital, as it'll mean you don't have to lead your targets quite as intensely when aiming at them. The Tac Laser is a really nice attachment to get yourself zoomed into enemy targets as quickly as possible, and the visibility penalty is nothing compared to how swiftly you'll be able to snap enemy heads and pick them off.
Reload time is solid enough as is too, although with only 5 rounds per magazine you'll want to make the most of every single one of them. You can always switch to 10 Round Mags if this is really bugging you, but you will be sacrificing damage and bullet velocity, so don't get too greedy with ammo capacity.
Feel free to compare the stats of the SP-R 208 with the other Marksman Rifles on our Warzone Gun Stats page so you can become more clear which DMR is right for you though! If you're not a common user of Marksman Rifles, this gun probably won't be for you, but it'll serve nicely as an upgrade to the Kar98k for anyone who enjoyed using that weapon. In the meantime, give our other Warzone guides a gander or hop into Cold War's Outbreak mode for the current season!
