With a wealth of different ARs to choose from in the loadout selection screen, it's tricky to decide which are viable options on the battlefield. As mentioned above, the BP50, SVA 545, and the MTZ 556 are the cream of the crop but other options could prove popular as Raven Software continues to tweak the weapon balance.

Closely following the top tier are the FR Avancer and the Holger 556. Although their damage output is close to beating the top ARs, the flaws of each slot them into A tier. Although they're not the best, they're still worth using.

At the very bottom of the list is the M16. It doesn't matter which attachment combination you select, recoil makes this particular AR very hard to control in situations where accuracy is the key to success.

Warzone Season 3 start date

The next season of Warzone will mark the halfway point of the current Warzone cycle. According to the battle pass timer, the Season 3 will begin on April 3, 2024.

That's everything there is to know about the best Warzone AR. We will update this guide regularly once the next update goes live and we've managed to determine which one is best to use as part of a loadout. In the meantime, check out the best Warzone FOV settings.
