While being a slow-firing rifle, the Sidewinder is proving to be a decent high-velocity and hard-hitting weapon, perfect for those preferring a playstyle that allows for close-to-mid range attacks.

Despite the low mag capacities available, its .450 Huntsman round can be heavy-hitting with the right recoil control attachments, and while it had received little love (and a small recent buff), this build can help you harness the power of the battle rifle for standard play! 



MUZZLE: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor (unlocked by leveling the DG-58 LSW to Level 9)

The Sidewinder can benefit from one of the more popular suppressor choices in the game, the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor. This mod balances bullet velocity with its core benefit: recoil control – a must to control the heavy .450 round’s tendency for unpredictable recoil bounce.

LASER: FSS OLE-V Laser (unlocked by leveling up the MTZ Interceptor to Level 11 or the EBR-14 to Level 10)

Undoubtedly the best performing laser in its class, the FSS OLE-V Laser allows for aiming stability and improved ADS times and sprint-to-fire times.

UNDERBARREL: Bruen Heavy Support Grip (unlocked by leveling the Striker SMG to Level 8)

The Sidewinder’s unpredictable recoil will also be mitigated through the use of the Bruen Heavy Support Grip – an attachment which ensures overall horizontal recoil control and firing aim stability. The grip also does not employ any sprint-to-fire penalties, adding further to the mobility and handling that the platform provides.

MAGAZINE: 30 Round Drum (unlocked at Level 28)

While the magazine reload time may be slow and this is the only high-cap mag viable for the Sidewinder, the 30 round drum rewards the user with a good amount of .450 ammunition to expend on various targets in the close-to-mid range area. Use the heavy firepower of this ammunition caliber to ensure faster armor breaking times as well as quick kills for unarmored targets!

OPTIC: JAK Glassless Optic (unlocked via the Arsenal Store)

Undoubtedly a favorite of Warzone PC users since its introduction in Season 2, the JAK Glassless Option allows for precise target acquisition and a cleaner sight picture with minimal visual recoil.


OPTIC: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x (unlocked by either leveling up the MCW 6.8 to Level 8 or the DM56 to Level 19)

Undoubtedly a favorite of meta builders in Warzone’s PC version, the Corio Eagleseye has the best balance of range, visual shake control, and ADS time that will allow the user to aim at the mid-to-long range category. Use the scope to engage whether in short or mid-range engagements and spot targets with its simple yet effective 2.5x magnification.


These attachments will help you make the most of a slow-firing yet powerful battle rifle!
