Latest Update: September 18, 2022 -

The Modern Warfare 2 beta showcased some of the best Warzone 2 ARs arriving in Warzone 2 later this year.

Scroll down for all there is to know.

The launch of Warzone 2 is on the horizon. Call of Duty's second iteration of the battle royale will act as a fresh start with a brand-new arsenal of weapons and an all-new map for players to drop onto. Although players will need to master a new collection of guns, the possibility of assault rifles (AR) dominating the meta is high.

Armed with impressive mid-range damage and plenty of customisation options, you can gear an AR to make an impact in nearly every single scenario you encounter over the course of a match.

With a few months until the game launches, some members of the community are already looking at the best Warzone 2 AR to use to ensure they have the upper hand as soon as the servers go live. Before that, check out our guide showcasing the latest intel including the Warzone 2 release date.


What is the best Warzone 2 AR?

With plenty of assault rifles likely appearing in the Warzone 2 arsenal, deciding which is the best one to use is currently impossible. However, with the likes of the M4 and AK-47 expected to return, players will have plenty of choices.

Considering the full Warzone 2 weapon list hasn't appeared yet, we're unable to rank them based on their in-game performance. As soon as we've tested each and every one of them, we will split them into tiers so you can see which ones are worth using and which ARs to avoid.


While we wait for the full list of Warzone ARs to appear, check out the Modern Warfare 2 guns list for a rough indication of the weapons likely appearing when Warzone 2 launches.

Warzone 2 reveal date

We already know Warzone 2 is in development but Activision is yet to mention it by name. With the Call of Duty Next event on the way, fans of the battle royale will hear more about the game on September 15, 2022.

In addition, the event will showcase Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer alongside intel on the mobile version of Warzone meaning there's something for all Call of Duty fans to look forward to.

That's everything there is to know about the best Warzone 2 AR. We will update this guide regularly once the game is out 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 2 FOV settings.
