+ 4

Call of Duty: Warzone is now in its second season of post-launch content for 2021.


If you've been playing Modern Warfare, you'll recognise a lot of weapons – but if you're wondering which is best, check out this tier list.

With the integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone, there are a range of new weaponry that you can use when patrolling the streets of Verdansk.

S Tier

  • MP5 (MW)
  • MAC-10
  • XM4
  • FFAR 1
  • Kilo 141
  • M16
  • Kar98k
  • LW3 - Tundra

These weapons dominate the competition, with the Kilo 141 being the strongest assault rifle to use by some margin.

The MP5 is its next closest competitor, despite being in a different weapon category. The combination of MP5 and Kilo 141 is arguably the strongest and is endorsed by pro players.

For those looking to add further power to their long-range engagements, the M16 Tactical Rifle from Black Ops Cold War is the perfect tool for the job. With minimal damage drop-off, the rifle excels in long-distance combat.

The XM4 from Black Ops Cold War certainly gives the M4 and the Kilo a run for their money thanks to a fast fire rate and minimal levels of recoil. For close-quarters engagements, the supreme fire rate and damage output of the MAC-10 has already become popular.

Despite recent nerfs, the FFAR 1 assault rifle remains in the top tier thanks to its sheer versatility.

A Tier

  • GRAU 5.56
  • Kar98k
  • M13
  • Krig 6 
  • MP7
  • MP5 (BOCW)
  • DMR 14
  • CR-56 AMAX
  • M4A1
  • AK-74u
  • Stoner 63
  • Type 63
  • Pelington 703
  • SP-R 208

The GRAU 5.56 is one of the better weapons in the game as it used the same ammo as the M4. Its adjustable and almost customisable iron sights, dependant on which barrel you choose, make it a nice weapon to use.

The new additions of the Krig 6 provide plenty of variety when it comes to selecting an assault rifle. The Krig is a solid all-round rifle, capable of being effective in the majority of situations.

After two hefty nerfs, the DMR has been demoted from S Tier to A Tier. It's still effective but is nowhere near as good as it once was.

B Tier

  • AX-50
  • P90
  • AK-47 (MW)
  • AK-47 (BOCW)
  • Oden
  • PKM
  • Striker 45
  • QBZ-83
  • AS VAL
  • Uzi
  • KSP 45
  • Groza
  • Milano 821
  • Gallo SA12
  • AUG (BOCW)
  • Fennec
  • Streetsweeper
  • Origin 12 Shotgun
  • Bruen Mk9
  • MK2 Carbine

The Striker 45 only makes it into the B tier. Although it is a decent weapon there are far better SMGs out there.

This category is dedicated to the inconsistent weapons of Modern Warfare - sometimes they're hot and sometimes they're not.

The AX-50 is great for picking off enemies at long range, but it can produce hitmakers in unexpected scenarios.

There are plenty of weapons from the Black Ops Cold War arsenal that slot into B due to their inconsistent performances on the battlefield.

The recent recoil increases of Black Ops Cold War's AUG has sent it down the order but if you can counter the recoil, it's still a sold weapon to be using.

C Tier

  • FR 5.56
  • HDR
  • Origin 12
  • FAL
  • Dragunov
  • SA87
  • EBR-14
  • Holger-26
  • MG-34
  • Bullfrog
  • AUG (MW)
  • RAM-7
  • Oden
  • Hauer 77
  • M60
  • RPD
  • VLK Rogue
  • ISO
  • AN-94
  • Model 680
  • JAK-12
  • SKS
  • Rytec AMR
  • R9-0

Once a dominant AR on previous CoD titles, the FAL still boasts good damage statistics but a high level of recoil makes it tricky to use with minimal attachments.

Despite being semi-automatic, the low damage of the Dragunov makes it the unfavoured weapon in its class.

The SA87 LMG packs a hefty punch and a steady rate of fire but the near-uncontrollable levels of recoil make it very tricky to use.
