The Rytec AMR: How to Unlock the New Sniper Rifle in Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®

Season Four Reloaded brought in the big guns – or, literally, a massive sniper rifle – to Multiplayer, Co-Op, and Warzone™. 

Free for all players who complete its challenge, the Rytec AMR is an anti-material rifle listed within the greater sniper rifle category capable of ripping through enemy equipment and vehicles, let alone infantry. Here’s its in-game description:

“This semi-automatic Anti-Material Rifle is chambered in .50 BMG for dominant long range assaults. A 25x59mm high-explosive payload variant is officially listed as “experimental,” but has been deployed on multiple classified missions with great effectiveness.

And here’s how you unlock the Rytec AMR:

Get 3 Quickscope Kills using Sniper or Marksman Rifles in 15 different matches.

Dust off your scope of choice and pop in that montage music playlist. Unlocking the Rytec AMR will require you to relive the “glory days” of quickscoping in Call of Duty. Fortunately, as you’ll find when attempting this challenge, quickscopers old and new can have some fun en route to unlocking this awesome AMR.

An Alternate Way to Unlock the Rytec AMR

Before we give our tips for unlocking this powerful long-range rifle, there is another way to unlock the Sniper Rifle Delta family outside of the challenge.

Now available in the Store, the ‘Lost Souls’ bundle includes the Damnation blueprint for Sniper Rifle Delta. This variant of the weapon comes pre-built with five attachments: the FTAC 488mm Dictator Barrel, Tac Laser, the Cronen C480 Pro Optic, Stippled Grip Tape, and the XRK Mastodon Stock. With these attachments combined, this configures a highly mobile weapon capable of aiming down sights at blazing speed compared to the base weapon.

On top of this blueprint, the ‘Lost Souls’ bundle also includes a calling card (‘Get Over Here’) and an emblem (‘The Chosen One’), both of which are animated to give your profile enough flair to match the Damnation’s awesomeness.

So, if you just can’t wait to play with the Sniper Rifle Delta, consider picking up the ‘Lost Souls’ bundle in the Store today.

Alternatively, if you rather earn this weapon through the in-game challenge – which is the only way to level the weapon up and unlock its Camo Challenges – don’t worry; we have some tips to make this easier on you:

Top 5 Rytec AMR Challenge Tips

5. Marksman or Sniper Rifle? Sniper rifles have a more forgiving damage profile, allowing for one-shot kills at greater distances and, in some cases, below the upper chest. However, marksman rifles are more mobile and make it easier to quickscope, at the cost of it being harder to land a reliable one-shot kill outside of a headshot. In summary, choose the weapon type – and more importantly, specific weapon – that fits your skill and comfort level.

4. Quickscoping 101. If you don’t know what quickscoping is, it’s simple: run around, acquire target, aim down sight, fire quickly, and repeat until you get three kinds of these kills in a game to tally one up for this challenge.

3. Stick to Multi-Life Multiplayer and Warzone Modes. Like the Kali Sticks challenge, multi-life game modes allow you to quickly rack up opportunities for quickscope kills. In other words, if that 900 reload cancel double switch fakie off the tower in Rust doesn’t work out, you can respawn and try, try again.

2. A Montage-Worthy Loadout. Now that you figured out what weapon you’re most comfortable with and how to quickscope with it, here’s a recommended loadout we have for this challenge, keeping in mind you should use a loadout that’s to your personal preference:

Primary Weapon: Your Choice

Secondary Weapon: Kali Sticks (Fastest weapon in terms of movement speed, to be whipped out when travelling towards the next engagement)

Perk 1: Quick Fix (Activates health regeneration immediately after kills, great for those bouncing between engagements quickly)

Perk 2: High Alert (Alerts you when enemies outside your peripheral vision target you, which allows you to snap around and quickscope them in response)

Perk 3: Amped (Faster weapon swaps to make those ridiculous double-switch quickscope moves easier to pull off)

Lethal Equipment: Any (doesn’t matter, but shooting and whipping out a Throwing Knife at the same time looks cool if you’re going for eye-catching plays)

Tactical Equipment: Flash / Stun / Gas Grenade (Disorienting your opponents make them easier targets to quickscope)

1. Reconnaissance is Power. Whether it’s running Recon Drones and UAVs on your own or playing with squad that makes reliable callouts and uses these recon tools religiously, the more intel you have on enemy movements, the more information you have to set-up your quickscoping trap.

 

If – and when – you unlock the Rytec AMR, you could use the above tips as a great starting point for learning how to quickscope with it. However, given the weapon’s experimental magazines and other cool configuration options, it’s best to experiment with the Rytec AMR to fully actualize its potential as a fantastic change-of-pace sniper rifle in your loadouts.

Sniping hotspots for the Rytec AMR and Getting in the Zone with Nikto

9. Junkyard on Shoot House. Forget the middle lane, which is notorious for those going for mounting longshots; from either team’s starting Gate, check down this lane for a potential long-to-mid range engagement as you circle around to catch those pesky wall-sitters.

8. North Lane of Khandor Hideout. Third (and final) new Multiplayer map spot. Especially in Domination where one flag calls this its home, there are a few bottleneck lanes and the opportunity to snipe over into others to go for an impressive clip.

7. The Passage and Pharmacy on Crash. Near an enemy spawn, this locale can be a bottleneck that enemy players rush through to get to mid-map quickly.

6. Outside South Spawn on Vacant. Two options here: either check the South Corridor or the small rooms within the Storage area. Also, remember you can shoot through the grated archway within the South Corridor.

5. East and Main Streets on Talsik Backlot. Long streets that ultimately lead to both squad’s initial spawns with plenty of buildings to clear. Alternatively, the Construction Site can lead to some impressive shots after bouncing off the ladder.

4. Pipes on Hardhat. Whether it is a collateral chance through the main pipe, or a stroll through the mid-map, the Pipes area loves to attract players looking for a dangerous shortcut through Hardhat’s center.

3. The Red and Green Warehouses of Scrapyard. Squads will either rush out of here to enter any of the lanes, or hole up to try and scout or snipe ahead for their team. Go for the flank towards either building, and you may be rewarded with an awesome feed.

2. Tower on Rust. For now, this is where you hit your game-ending trickshot. Plenty of air-time to pull off however many spins/weapon swaps/equipment cancels before nailing an epic killcam.

Blueprint Review and Loadout

Damnation

Now available in the Store, the ‘Lost Souls’ bundle includes the red and white Damnation weapon blueprint. The Damnation utilizes several improved ADS speed attachments along with a mid-range optic for a sniper rifle that competes well in mid- and long-range engagements.

The FTAC 448mm Dictator barrel, Tac Laser, Stippled Grip Tape, and the lightweight 3.5x magnification Cronen C80 Pro Optic all work to improve the Damnation’s ADS speed along with other mobility-enhancing benefits. To keep your crosshairs on target, the final XRK Mastadon attachment maintains aiming stability. This results in a snappier rifle that won’t feel burdensome when the enemy closes in.

Here’s a suggested loadout for the Damnation weapon blueprint that can be used in Warzone or Multiplayer:

Primary: The Damnation Blueprint

Secondary: CR-56 AMAX (Available at Tier 31 in the Season Four Battle Pass system)

Perks: Quick Fix, Overkill, Battle Hardened

Equipment: Frag Grenade, Snapshot Grenade

This versatile loadout gives you the option to punch down enemies fast using the Damnation, or to trade some power for mobility by switching to the new CR-56 AMAX assault rifle.

Quick Fix heals you up between engagements, especially important after taking damage while acquiring your target with the Damnation, and Battle Hardened keeps you focused when the enemy gets close and starts tossing in tactical grenades. Tag them with your Snapshot Grenade and then shoot down the identified targets or blast them with your frag.

A good strategy in Warzone and Multiplayer is to take out one or two enemies with the Damnation and then switch weapons once your position is known and you need the faster handling speed. Of course, if your Warzone squad has your back, fire away— your high damage output will clear the area in no time.
