The Best Loadouts For The Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle In Call Of Duty: Warzone Season Five

The Swiss K31 is currently one of the strongest sniper rifles in the Call of Duty: Warzone video game, being a straight pull bolt action sniper rifle. 

This bolt action and straight pull design makes the weapon a little faster than some choices, whilst also being much less cumbersome when it comes to rechambering.

The result is a bolt action rifle with a significantly higher fire rate than many of the other bolt action rifles to be found in Warzone. 

As well as being a faster choice amongst its peers, the Swiss K31 also has a low recoil, improved accuracy, a significant ammo capacity and quick aiming speed. 

That being said, there are ways that you can improve the Swiss K31 and negate the limitations that it might have by picking the right loadout.

Loadouts are weapon attachments and perks that can be combined with the gun to create your own, unique weapon class. 

There are certain choices you can make when picking your loadout and perks for the Swiss K31 that can heighten your gameplay and make for even more kills!

With this in mind, we are going to be looking at some particularly effective loadout and attachment choices for the Swiss K31, as well as some of the best perks to use with it so that you get the absolute most out of the sniper rifle.

Let’s get started. 

Unlocking The Swiss K31 In Call Of Duty: Warzone

Before we get started on the best loadout and perks, let’s first take a look at how you can unlock the Swiss K31, as there are specific conditions that need to be met before you can do so. 

When the weapon was first released on April 22nd 2021- at the beginning of season three of Call of Duty: Warzone-, the player would have to get to level 31 of the Battle Pass to obtain the gun.

This is no longer the case though, as when season four kicked off, the Swiss K31 was no longer locked into the battle pass. Instead, the player only needs to complete a simple challenge to gain access to it. 

The challenge is thankfully relatively easy, with the player needing to get two headshot kills with any sniper rifle within fifteen different completed matches in order to unlock the weapon.

If you are using a sniper rifle, headshots are a dime a dozen, so it shouldn’t be too taxing to get what you need to gain access to the Swiss K31.

The only issue with this challenge is that it can be time-consuming, as it needs to be done across fifteen matches. A tip to complete this challenge in as little time as possible is to play shorter game modes, such as Nuketown 24/7. 

Once the conditions have been met by completing the challenge, the weapon can be found on the rewards page. . 

To equip the weapon, simply go to the loadout tab and then equip the Swiss K31 as your primary weapon. 

Best Swiss K31 Attachments And Loadouts

Let’s take a look at some of the best choices for an optimal loadout when it comes to the Swiss K31. 

Barrel: 24.9” Combat Recon (Will Unlock at Level 30) 

The combat recon 24.9 inch barrel is a must when it comes to the most effective build for the Swiss K31, as, although it will decrease the control of your idle sway, it will add to the bullet velocity in a way that significantly increases the strength of the muzzle. 

This barrel became even more well suited to the Swiss K31 following the Season 4 early balance updates, as it received a substantial buff wherein the bullet velocity gain increased from 43% all the way to 50%.

Muzzle: GRU Suppressor (Will Unlock at Level 46)

Whilst the Sound Moderator is also a popular choice of suppressor for the Swiss K31- and for good reason- the GRU Suppressor beats it out due to the range of benefits that it offers, including an a boost to the vertical recoil control as well as the sound suppression along with heightened range for both damage and bullet velocity. 

The disadvantages to this suppressor include a bit of hit to stability and the speed of the aim down sight, but these are just minor effects.

Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight (Will Unlock at Level 31)

You might think that opting for a laser sight with a sniper is an odd choice, but it works excellently with the Swiss K31, as it can raise your aim down sight time significantly whilst only slightly decreasing the aim walking movement speed. 

Rear Grip: Serpent Grip (Will Unlock at Level 44)

The Serpent Grip is well suited to the rifle- as well as the other attachments we have suggested-  as it can improve the aim down sight time even more so. 

The grip does decrease your sprint to fire time a little bit, but compared to the balance that the attachment brings, it is more than a manageable disadvantage. 

Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip (Will Unlock at Level 33) 

Although you can use an optic rather than an underbarrel, utilizing the slot for the Bruiser Grip has become the most effective choice for this particular weapon since the default scope received a fix. 

The grip combines with the Serpent Grip to enhance the aiming stability and the movement speed of the weapon even more so. 

Best Swiss K31 Equipment And Perks

Perk 1: Overkill (Will Unlock at Level 38)

Overkill allows players to carry one extra primary weapon instead of a secondary weapon, which can make for some great pairings with the Swiss K31, such as the FARA 83 assault rifle.

This pairs particularly well with the K31 as it covers both long and short range. 

Perk 2: Cold-Blooded (Will Unlock at Level 29)

Cold-Blooded is a must for sniper rifle users in Warzone, as it allows the player to go undetected by the enemies thermal optics as well as the AI targeting system, which can make for plenty of sneaky headshots. 

Perk 3: Tracker (Will Unlock at Level 51)

Tracker allows you to see imprints of enemy footprints, making for easier enemy tracking and leading to better sniping opportunities. 

Tactical Equipment: Heartbeat Sensor Will Unlock at Level 1)

Much like the Tracker perk, the Heartbeat Sensor lets you keep an eye on enemies. 

The sensor also lets you see enemies that you haven’t actually come into contact with yet, making it well suited for sneaky sniping. 

Lethal Equipment: Claymore (Will Unlock at Level 1)

The Claymore pairs well with the sneak and snipe tactic that you might want to consider when using the Swiss K31, as you can place it nearby so that you can defend yourself against anyone who find your sniping location and tries to take you out.
