Latest Update - August 9, 2022:

With Season 4 Reloaded in full swing, we've adjusted the best Warzone guns based on the most recent buffs and nerfs.

See what's dominating the meta below!

Season 4 of Warzone Pacific began a couple of weeks ago, introducing a new map to the rotation in the shape of Fortune's Keep. Since that changes so much about the game, you'll be wondering what the best Warzone guns are in Season 4, following the changes that Raven has made.

With Season 4 Reloaded on the horizon, there's a high chance the Season 4 meta could change so finding the best guns to use is important if you want to score plenty of wins.

We'll go over which guns are the best by breaking every single weapon down into tiers. You can then get a good sense of what is best to use.

For more on Warzone Season 4, we also have guides on the best Fortune's Keep landing spots and what the current meta is.

What are the best Warzone guns?

S Tier NZ-41, Marco 5, H4 Blixen, Cooper Carbine, KG M40, MP-40, Armaguerra 43

With regular doses of weapon balancing from Raven Software, the best crop of weapons often changes with the launch of a brand-new season. Season 4 is slightly different. The KG M40 has taken the mantle of the best Warzone gun to use following further nerfs to the NZ-41.

If you're struggling to find the best guns to use, check out the full tier list below starting with the best Warzone guns available in Season 4.

S tier

Following the most recent buffs and nerfs, these weapons stand out from the rest of the arsenal. The NZ-41 assault rifle (AR) is still dominating the mid-range meta while the Owen Gun is rising in popularity as a viable alternative to the MP40.

In addition, the sniper nerf sees the AX-50 and HDR from Modern Warfare make an appearance in the highest tier alongside the ZRG 20mm from Black Ops Cold War.

A tier

This set of weaponry is still capable of contending with the ever-changing meta, but does fall short in a number of areas. The most recent additions to A tier are the Swiss K31 and both Kar98k variations following the sniper balance overhaul.

If you're after an alternative AR, the EM2 and C58 from Black Ops Cold War can still compete with the best but their damage drop-off can prove problematic.

B tier

Some of the weapons that once dominated now find themselves in B tier as new weapons rise to the top of the pile. The brand-new Nikita AVT assault rifle appears in this tier due to its high recoil.

There's a wide variety of weaponry in this tier and with the right attachments, you can find success on Caldera and Rebirth Island despite their drawbacks.

C tier

These weapons may have featured in the meta of previous seasons but in Season 4, they're some of the more forgettable weapons on offer. They're certainly unique but with a lack of mid-range and long-distance performance, there are far better choices to use.

D tier

These weapons never feature in the meta and are often overlooked for good reason. Most of them feature significant flaws that no attachment combinations can fix.

If you want a really tough challenge, these weapons are perfect but don't expect to score plenty of kills.

Z tier

These weapons are easily the worst to use in Season 4 of the battle royale. It's best to evade anything in this tier altogether as there are several weapons that are much better to use on Caldera, Fortune's Keep and Rebirth Island.
