Are you curious about the best Signal 50 loadout for Warzone 2.0? Then rest assured, as we show you the best loadout with the optimal setup for dominating Al Mazrah.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 has been a massive success worldwide. The direct sequel to Warzone Caldera, Warzone 2.0 features guns, equipment, and game mechanics from MW2. There are 70 weapons in MW2, which are also present in its BR counterpart.

Among the 73 weapons, 7 of them are Sniper Rifles. Warzone 2.0’s largest map in CoD history makes it a ballpark for Sniper Rifles. From the Sniper Rifle class, the Signal 50 has managed to steal the spotlight with its unmatched damage output and versatility.

The Signal is based on the Barret 50 Cal. The powerhouse of a Sniper Rifle is the hardest-hitting weapon in the game. With its rapid-fire rate, the gun outclasses every other weapon of the same class. So, here’s the optimal build for Signal 50 in Warzone 2.0.

How to unlock Signal 50 in Warzone 2.0

The Signal 50 is available when players reach Player level 44 in CoD: Warzone 2 for the first time, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon is unlocked. To unlock some of the better attachments for the gun, players must level up their rank with the Signal 50 as players would with any other weapon in Call of Duty games.

To rank up Signal 50, keep playing Warzone 2.0 when it is equipped. While the Signal 50 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by slaying enemies, taking down killstreaks, and completing contracts. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the Signal 50 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before a Warzone 2 match begins.

Best Equipment & Perks for Signal 50 Loadout

The weapon specialist package is excellent for calm and calculated players. The base perks are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm grants players more projectile-throwing power with a preview of the trajectory, while Overkill allows them to carry two primary weapons.

Furthermore, players can use Spotter for the bonus perk, which spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. Lastly, the ultimate perk is Survivor, which acts as a self-revive but in the form of a perk.
