The Best Warzone Guns After The DMR 14 Nerf

Season One for Call of Duty: Warzone is in full swing.

After the integration of Black Ops Cold War into the popular battle royale, the somewhat stable metagame underwent drastic change thanks to the additions of the MAC-10, Diamatti, and most notably, the DMR 14 tactical rifle.

In recent weeks, the DMR 14 has dominated the metagame thanks to its extremely high damage output and minimal drop-off at longer distances.

On January 5th, Raven Software confirmed that a weapon balancing update is coming soon, much to the delight of players. With the DMR in line for an impending nerf, what are the best Warzone classes to use?
