Call of Duty Warzone Marksman Rifle Tier List, Ranked From Best To Worst

Marksman Rifles in Warzone are a hybrid between an assault rifle (AR) and a sniper rifle, making them some of the strongest guns to use in mid-range engagements. Throughout the battle royale's short history, some rifles have squeezed into the metagame but have quickly fallen out of favour while one has withstood every single nerf Raven Software has thrown at it.

Apart from the one exception, Marksman Rifles have never proven to be a popular choice when creating a strong Warzone loadout but on rare occasions, they do have their place within the game. With that said, find the best Warzone Marksman Rifle in our ultimate tier list!

Warzone Marksman Rifle Tier List

This particular tier list ranks all of the available Marksman Rifles within Warzone rather than looking at the very best weapons to be using as part of a loadout. Let's see which is the best and which one you should stay away from.


Topping the tier list by some margin is the Kar98k, a Marksman rifle many believe to be classed as a sniper. Thanks to its high mobility levels and devastating damage output, the Kar98k is still one of the best weapons to use in Warzone whether it's up close and personal or in long-distance duels.

Perhaps the next best thing to the Kar98k is the SP-R 208, a rifle that heavily resembles the iconic R700 sniper from Call of Duty 4. This bolt-action rifle can take down an opponent in a single shot but its lack of mobility puts it into A-tier.


Another bolt-action offering is the MK2 Carbine and while it is more mobile than the SP-R, the lack of damage output leads to regular hitmarkers appearing onto an opponent which often leads to an early trip to the Gulag. It's a fun weapon to use but nowhere near the level of the SP-R or the Kar98k.

This mixture of rifles and crossbows is one that you should stay well away from if you intend on dropping any kills during a Warzone match. The unorthodox nature of the crossbows may seem appealing but there are far better options to be using.

There you have it, that's the ultimate Warzone Marksman Rifle tier list! Once Vanguard's arsenal has been integrated into the game we will update the list to see how the new additions compare against what's on offer.
