In my opinion, there are only two you should consider - the Tempus 26.4" Archangel and the FSS 20.8" Nexus.

These provide a significant and similar upgrade, both increasing the Damage range, Bullet velocity and Recoil control - all three things you want to pack a punch at distance.

They also both have two hinderances - decreased aim down sight speed and movement speed. These flaws are easily overlooked in a game like Warzone and can be combatted with attachments such as the Tac Laser and No Stock.

I've always found the Archangel sight to be clean and reliable for tracking an enemy at range, but it can be said that is harder to line up the target at very long ranges and can be slightly tough if the iron sights cover your opponent fully at extreme ranges.

It also does more damage, is more accurate and has better control according to the in-game stats.

The Nexus barrel really helps you line up your target much more cleanly, thanks to the trident styled ironsights, that could make the difference in a gunfight.

If you're in the market for a short-range attachment, the Drifter barrel is great and provides a really clean ironsight.
