The major Warzone Pacific Season 3 update has thrown the Sniper meta into disarray. While most players believed the HDR and AX-50 would receive the bulk of the attention, it seems like the Type 99 is quickly stealing the spotlight.
Much like the majority of Warzone Snipers at the moment, the Type 99 can no longer one-shot players to the head from a considerable distance. Within 44 meters the weapon can one-shot to the head but from the same distance, the Type 99 can also one-shot to the chest which is completely game-breaking.
Best Warzone Type 99 loadout attachments
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Shiraishi 712mm Sniper
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: Removed Stock
- Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
- Magazine: 8mm Klauser 5 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
- Perk 1: Vital
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
The best Type 99 loadout for Warzone Season 3 is all about maximizing range, mobility, and damage output. The three most important attachments you’ll need to equip to produce the one-shot kill to the chest are the Shiraishi 712mm Sniper, 8mm Klauser 5 Round Magsand Vital.
The MX Silencer will allow you to one-shot to the chest from 44 meters instead of the Mercury Silencer’s 41 meters. Finding Sniper ammo could be a troublesome task in Warzone, so we’ve opted for Fully Loaded to keep you stocked up.
A slow ADS speed could ruin a Sniper loadout which is why you’ll want to equip the Fabric Grip and Removed Stock. Lengthened will increase your bullet velocity and it is the best ammunition option.
Meanwhile, the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x offers a great precision sight that is perfect for Caldera or Rebirth Island.
Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone Type 99 class
- Perk 1: Double Time
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
- Tactical Equipment: Stim
Snipers aren’t the easiest Warzone weapons to travel with, so the Double Time Perk’s increase to tactical sprint duration is quite valuable. Overkill is a necessity as you’ll want to opt for a Sniper support weapon.
Again, Snipers often lack swiftness when it comes to movement speed which makes Amped the perfect third Perk for this Type 99 loadout.
The Throwing Knife and Stim Equipment combination will allow you to maximize your ability to win close-range gunfights. Outmanouvering your enemies with the Stim and finishing downed players with the Throwing Knife will benefit.
