How to quickscope in Modern Warfare and Warzone explained
A Quickscope is an ancient Call of Duty technique where you get someone in front of you, aim down your sights, and then kill them quickly.
You've got very little time to actually do this - just under a second roughly - so you want to fire to kill the moment your scope is on them.
This means you should be aiming for the head, and while it may sound daunting to some, there are a few ways to make it far easier on yourself.
You have to perform these Quickscopes with either a Sniper Rifle or a Marksman Rifle, and while there are arguments for both, using a Sniper Rifle offers a bit more stopping power and range, so can make your life easier as a result, while a Marksman Rifle has more mobility.

Our recommendation for quickscopes is the middle ground between the mobility of a Marksman and the power of a Sniper - and that's the Kar98K. This is classed as a Marksman rifle, but it does an obscene amount of damage.
You'll want to kit this out whichever attachments you have that improve your Aim Down Sight speed, things like the Tac Laser, the FTAC Sport Comb, and the Stippled Grip Tape.
Beyond the choice of weapon - when and how is the best way to quickscope?
How to get easy quickscopes in Warzone
In Warzone, the best way to get your Quickscope kills is to play the Warzone Rumble mode. This mode allows you to respawn after every kill, and come into a match with a loadout, allowing you to get those valued three quickscope kills much easier for the Rytec AMR.
This mode isn't always available, so it requires the playlist being active.
Season 5 is here, and it features new Season 5 Battle Pass skins and Operators to unlock and map changes to explore. You can read all about it in the latest Warzone patch notes. There is also new challenges to complete in the form of The Lost Team Intel. While you get accustomed to the new season, read up on our Warzone tips and tricks, list of best Warzone loadouts, the best Warzone perks, how the Warzone Gulag works and how to quickscope.
Otherwise, in other Warzone modes, you'll want to keep an eye out for the free loadout drops that appear, and run with a team who are happy to support you in your attempts at getting your quickscopes.
A much easier method, ultimately, is playing in standard Modern Warfare multiplayer.

In Modern Warfare, you have the luxury of respawning upon death in most modes, giving you a better opportunity to get three quickscopes in a match.
We recommend playing a hardcore game mode. This means that enemies will take far fewer hits to take down, and that, in turn, means that you should have a far easier job of taking them out.
Other tips for quickscopes in Call of Duty
No matter which mode you're in, you can make things easier for yourself by taking up good positions. You generally want to follow along with sniping advice, which means finding a good spot to sit in where you can't be seen, but you can see out of.
From there, watch for players in front of you and move your reticle over their head before aiming down your sights and taking them out. High ground helps a lot with this too, so finding a good rooftop can often make this challenge a breeze.
On top of all of the above, you don't actually have to finish the matches you get three kills in. That means you can drop out once you've got three Quickscope kills and then jump straight into another game to get through this Rytec AMR challenge as fast as possible.
