Warzone Weapon Tier List And Best Weapons To Use (Season 4 Reloaded)

Call of Duty: Warzone is now in its fourth season of post-launch content for 2021. Thanks to regular updates by Activision and Raven Software, players are treated to new additions to the weapon arsenal and as the second half of Season 4 gets underway, a new submachine gun 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

  • MP5 (MW)
  • MAC-10
  • MG 82
  • C58
  • CR-56 AMAX
  • Kilo 141
  • FARA 83
  • AK-47 (BOCW)

These weapons dominate the competition, with a variety of assault rifles and even the MG 82 LMG still holding its own despite recent nerfs.

The MP5 from Modern Warfare is its next closest competitor, despite being in a different weapon category. The combination of MP5 and C58 is arguably the strongest and is endorsed by pro players.

The CR-56 AMAX from Modern Warfare is still a viable choice thanks to a consistent rate and minimal levels of recoil. For close-quarters engagements, the supreme fire rate and damage output of the MAC-10 still proves to be a popular weapon of choice.

A Tier

  • GRAU 5.56
  • Kar98k
  • M13
  • Kilo 141
  • Krig 6 
  • MP7
  • MP5 (BOCW)
  • DMR 14
  • 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)
  • 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
  • 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.

D Tier

  • Riot Shield
  • M82
  • FN Scar 17
  • PP19 Bizon
  • ISO
  • 725
