The M82 is a semi-auto sniper in Black Ops Cold War. It is described as having heavy recoil and slow handling. It is also a 1 shot kill to the head or upper chest.

The M82 certainly has the slowest handling speeds among the snipers in Cold War. It also has the slowest ADS times. This guide will look into the stats of the weapon, it will also suggest the best attachments to run with the M82 as well as the best class setups to run. 

The class setups are tuned to suit a variety of playstyles and objectives. 

Weapon background

The M82 has appeared in many Call of Duties. It is more commonly known as the Barret 50.cal. It is known for its high power rounds.

  • Rate of Fire: 180 RPM
  • Recoil: Moderate

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the M82 in Black Ops Cold War are the Infiltrator Grip, Serpent Wrap, and the Raider Pad Stock. The Infiltrator Grip is a great attachment on all the snipers providing a balance of speed increasements. The Serpent Wrap increases ADS times by 10%. The M82 has the slowest of all the snipers. Finally, the Raider Stock improves Sprint to fire times by 30% and Aim Walking Movement Speed by 40%. These attachments focus on improving the M82s much slower handling speeds.

Best Class Setups

Class 1 – M82 Best Quickscope Class

The quickscope class setup for the M82 is a controversial one. The weapon is not really recommended to use a run and gun sniper. However, here we have maxed out the ADS and handling speeds.


  • 19.5” Ultralight Barrel
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Infiltrator Grip
  • Serpent Wrap
  • Raider Stock

Class Setup

The rest of the class setup is tuned for countering enemy equipment. Here we also have the Stoner 63 as secondary for the longer-range engagements.

  • Secondary: Stoner 63
  • Perk 1: Tac Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Perk 3: Ghost
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun
  • Field Upgrade: Proximity Mine
  • Wildcard: Law Breaker

Class 2 – Barebones Iron Sights

The Barebones Iron Sights gunsmith setup focuses on speed. The highlight and fun part of the class is the use of the iron sights. The weapon acts more like a DMR than a sniper.


  • Iron Sights
  • 19.5” Ultralight
  • SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Serpent Wrap
  • Raider Pad

Class Setup

The remainder of the barebones class setup is tuned for ultimate perk use. Scavenger and Tracker work really well, especially when using the iron sights. It’s a little tricky to use so getting the heads up to an enemy’s recent movement will bag you easier kills and easy ammo refills. 

  • Secondary: 1911
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket / Tac Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger / Tracker
  • Perk 3: Cold Blooded / Ghost
  • Lethal: C4
  • Tactical: Flashbang
  • Field Upgrade: Field Mic
  • Wildcard: Perk Greed

Class 3 – Long Ranger Accuracy

The final gunsmith loadout maximizes the sniper’s accuracy at range. Fit the following attachments onto the M82.


  • Ultrazoom Custom
  • Infantry Stabilizer
  • 22.6” Combat Recon
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Bipod
  • Fast Mags
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Marathon Stock

Class Setup

The Long Ranger Accuracy class setup is geared towards absolute accuracy and additional firepower. Here we will use Tac Mask, Scavenger, and Ghost. We’ll find it a lot easier to navigate the map and stay stealthy at the same time.

  • Secondary: M79
  • Perk 1: Tac Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Perk 3: Ghost
  • Lethal: Frag
  • Tactical: Flashbang
  • Field Upgrade: Field Mic
