Black Ops Cold War: Best ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle Loadout

The ZRG 20mm is the newest weapon to hit Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. It’s a bolt-action rifle that packs a heavy punch but definitely lacks in mobility. Nevertheless, here’s the best ZRG 20mm loadout to have you slaying with the new weapon.

First off, the new weapon can be unlocked in the store by purchasing the “Jackpot Sniper Bundle.” If you want to unlock it the old fashioned way, just get 2 longshot medals in 10 different games using any sniper rifle.

So you’ve finally got the ZRG 20mm, but there’s another problem. The gun is heavy, it only holds a couple of bullets at a time, and other snipers just seem so much more viable. Not to fear, there’s a loadout that can mitigate the downsides to this weapon and make you a force to be reckoned with when it’s in your hands.

The worst aspects of the new sniper rifle are without question the dreadfully slow time to ADS and the tiny 3 round magazine. These are the things that we will aim to enhance using the attachments below:

Best attachments for the ZRG 20mm

  • Muzzle: Sound Moderator
  • Barrel: 39.3″ Rapid Fire
  • Magazine: 5 RND
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Marathon Stock

The idea for the Sound Moderator is to increase the bullet velocity when firing. The 39.3″ Rapid Fire will increase the fire rate so you can keep unloading rounds.

The Airborne Elastic Wrap and the Marathon Stock will help with the slow ADS time of the ZRG 20mm, and lastly, the 5 Round magazine will give you 2 extra bullets on top of the abysmal 3 rounds the base magazine has.

Using these attachments will add much more mobility to a very sluggish loadout, giving you more flexibility and making the ZRG 20mm compete with even the best of the other snipers in the game.
