Warzone 2 received a new marksman firearm in the form of the Tempus Torrent with the release of Season 2 Reloaded, and JGOD describes this weapon as a “monster” when used correctly. Marksman Rifles still need to establish a firm position in the gameplay meta of Warzone 2. The class enjoyed great success in Warzone 1, but in Warzone 2, it has been difficult for semi-automatic rifles to compete with fast-firing light machine guns due to the increased rate of fire of these weapons.
Marksman rifles were introduced back into play in Season 2 Reloaded, and the Tempus Torrent was the weapon that completely dominated the long-range meta of the battle royale. The Warzone 2 expert JGOD put the new “hard-hitting” weapon through its paces and came away impressed with its performance.
JGOD explains why the Tempus Torrent is an essential weapon in Warzone
JGOD made a comparison between the Tempus Torrent and the most popular ISO Hemlock. However, the Tempus Torrent has a TTK of 380 milliseconds at 71 meters, while the Hemlock has a TTK of 700 milliseconds at 58 meters. Fire rates make this number appear to be more impressive than it is. When it comes to the place Tempus Torrent, it has some insanely rapid times to kill. If you hit three enemies in the skull within 50 meters of each other, you can get a TTK of 380 milliseconds.
The YouTuber admitted that, in all likelihood, players couldn’t successfully strike three headshots in a row due to the limitations imposed by the weapon’s semi-automatic fire mode. “Within 71 meters is going to be where this shines, which is kind of a crazy range but is easier to say than to do,” he said.
Using the statistics provided by TrueGameData, JGOD discovered that every missed shot results in a penalty of 150 milliseconds for the players. The Tempus Torrent is a firearm that exemplifies the concept of high-risk, high-reward combat. It would help if you had a high level of ability because there is a good chance you will perish within that time frame.
The best loadout for the Tempus Torrent in Warzone 2
The following is JGOD’s preferred loadout for Tempus Torrent, complete with attachment customization.
- Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40 (+0.44, +0.28)
- Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity (-0.35, -6.39)
- Magazine: 30 Round Mag
- Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip (+0.74, +0.30)
- Optic: Aim OP-V4 (-1.55, +1.80)
JGOD does not anticipate that the Tempus Torrent will be able to contend with the DMR-14 of Warzone 1, but he believes that it is worthy of recognition nonetheless.
