The SP-R 208 is one of the most powerful bolt-action marksman rifles in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It is a variant of the famed R700 from Call of Duty 4 and was also featured in the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot. It now returns with a few improvements.
The SP-R 208 excels in precise shots at long ranges. Each shot carries a massive boom which signifies its power. You will need to get hold of its recoil but fair to say a good sniper/marksman will always be able to take out enemies with a single, controlled headshot.
To unlock SP-R-208 in Modern Warfare, you need to increase your rank to level 41 in the Bryson Long Rifle Platform. The same progression also carries other weapons, such as SA-B 50, LA-B 330, and SP-X 80, and can be unlocked by leveling up.
