The best ZRG 20mm loadout in Black Ops Cold War Season 2



The newest weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 2, the 20mm ZRG Sniper, released yesterday April 7. A bolt-action rifle, the weapon packs a punch but is lacking in some key areas, making it difficult to create its charge.

In essence, the ZRG 20mm is another bolt-action sniper that deals heavy damage one shot at a time. However, his stats are a bit skewed, as he packs top-tier damage but lacks mobility. To use it viably, players must use a charge that helps put it on par with the other bolt-action snipers.

To unlock the 20mm ZRG, players must purchase the “Jackpot Sniper Bundle” from the store or complete a challenge. The challenge requires 2 Long Shot medals in 10 different games using a sniper rifle. A fairly easy task, most gamers should be able to unlock the ZRG 20mm in a couple of hours.

Once this is done, the process of leveling up and designing equipment comes into play. However, gamers are a bit confused as to which accessories to use, as the 20mm ZRG features such strange stats. Fortunately, there is already a recommended upload floating around in the Black Ops Cold War community.

  • Muzzle: sound moderator
  • Barrel: 39.3 ″ rapid fire
  • Magazine: 5 RND
  • Handle: Airborne stretch wrap
  • Stock: Marathon Stock

The most important aspect for gamers to improve on the 20mm ZRG is its slow ADS and sprint-to-fire times. Apparently it takes forever to raise the gun and when it’s ready, enemies are already shooting at you. So for the recommended load, Airborne Elastic Wrap and Marathon Stock are in use to increase both ADS and sprint times to fire.

Following these two accessories is the 39.3 ″ Rapid Fire barrel to increase the rate of fire of the weapon. In addition, the sound moderator increases the speed of the bullet, another poor area, and keeps players off the map when they shoot.

Finally, the 5 RND magazine is equipped to increase the base 3 RND magazine of the weapon. Three rounds is not enough, so the 5 RND attachment is an update, but it also has no negatives on ADS timing.
