The original Warzone has been depreciated in favour of Warzone 2. For the best LMG guide in the current Warzone, click here.

For those looking for an alternative to an assault rifle or a submachine gun, Light Machine Guns (LMG) are a viable option when it comes to dealing damage in Season 5 of Warzone Pacific. While their damage stats are often impressive, their lack of mobility is their biggest flaw, with sluggish movement speed preventing players from navigating Caldera and Rebirth Island as fast as possible.

Despite this, some LMG's continue to prove popular and regularly appear amongst the very best Warzone weapons available. With that said, find the ultimate tier list for Warzone's LMGs in this guide!

Warzone LMG Tier List

With 17 LMGs to choose from, there's no shortage of variety when it comes to choosing one as part of a loadout. Here's how each of the 17 fares against each other.


Despite recent nerfs to the Bren, it remains in the highest tier thanks to its unmatched performance in mid-range engagements.

With Vanguard now integrated into the battle royale, the DP27 and MG42 are also immensely powerful and more than capable of shredding through any AR players at medium range thanks to their high damage output and controllable recoil.

The MG 82 and Stoner 63 were nerfed after a brief period amongst the top meta weapons in Warzone and since the changes were implemented, they're still viable options but they're not as good as they once were.


The Holger-26 is perhaps one of the more underrated LMGs to use in Warzone thanks to the limitless attachment combinations. It's not particularly strong in a standout area but it can still make an impact in the right hands.

All four of these LMGs slot nicely into the lowest tier available. Even after attempting to find a strong attachment combo, all of them are awful in every aspect. Do not go near these LMGs.
