Warzone Weapon Tier List And Best Weapons To Use (Season 6)

Season 6 of Warzone is finally underway, much to the excitement of the community. Thanks to regular updates by Activision and Raven Software, players are treated to new additions to the weapon arsenal, and as the early stages of the season gets underway, a new assault rifle and shotgun has been introduced to the popular battle royale.

With so many weapons to choose from, it can be tricky to determine which is the best weapon to use when dropping into Verdansk and Rebirth Island. Thankfully, we've come up with a definitive tier list showcasing which are the best and which aren't so good.

S Tier

  • FARA 83
  • Swiss K31
  • MAC-10
  • Krig 6
  • OTs 9
  • MG82
  • Kar98k
  • C58
  • CR-56 AMAX

These weapons dominate the competition, with a variety of assault rifles and even the Stoner 63 still holding its own despite recent nerfs.

The MP5 from Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War are viable options for close-quarters combat alongside the MAC-10 which still dominates thanks to its immense rate of fire.

For long-distance duels, no weapons come close to the Kar98k and the Swiss K31. Armed with incredible mobility levels and a lethal one-shot kill, these two rifles are the key to getting the upper hand over the opposition from a distance.

A Tier

  • GRAU 5.56
  • M13
  • TEC-9
  • Milano 821
  • Kilo 141
  • MP7
  • Grav
  • MP5 (BOCW)
  • DMR 14
  • M4A1
  • AK-74u
  • 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.

Despite regular adjustments, the DMR 14 continues to hang on in A Tier as it can still pack a deadly punch in those crucial mid-range engagements.

B Tier

  • AX-50
  • P90
  • AK-47 (MW)
  • Oden
  • PKM
  • Striker 45
  • QBZ-83
  • AS VAL
  • Uzi
  • KSP 45
  • Groza
  • Gallo SA12
  • AUG (BOCW)
  • Fennec
  • Streetsweeper
  • Origin 12 Shotgun
  • Bruen Mk9
  • .410 Ironhide
  • MK2 Carbine
  • PPSH-41

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
  • Swiss K

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.

  • PP19 Bizon
  • ISO
