Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0's Sniper Class get a new member
There is certainly no shortage of good long-range weapons in Modern Warfare 2 with many solid options already existing in the Marksman and Sniper Rifle categories. The developers have introduced a unique system, using which weapons share a common lineage and belong to certain families or weapon platforms.
A total of ten weapon classes in the game will be shared with Warzone 2.0 and these will contain the entire collection of weapons in the game. Presently, there are only four Sniper Rifles in the class and they are:
- Signal 50
- LA-B 330
- SP-X 80
Each of these snipers are potent and are viable options to eliminate enemies from a distance with a single shot. Since some are heavier than others, they compensate for this disadvantage with higher damage and damage range stats.
How to get the Victus XMR
This weapon will be available to all players when Season 1 launches, regardless of whether they purchase the Battle Pass or not. However, it won't be a free weapon in the Battle Pass, and fans will have to play the game and level up Battle Pass tiers to obtain it. As soon as they hit the required tier, the Victus XMR will automatically unlock and be available to add to their loadouts.
The Victus XMR is the latest sniper rifle that will be available to players in both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 from November 16 itself. The start of Season 1 will bring a total of four new weapons to both games, with two of these being free to players and the other two being made available mid-season.
And that's all you need to know about obtaining the Victus XMR Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 through the Battle Pass in Season 1. Be sure to follow Sportskeeda for more updates on weapons and the best weapon build guides.
