March 20, 2024: The final weeks of Season 6 are underway and we've updated our Warzone marksman rifle tier list so you know which is best to use.

The best Warzone marksman rifle remains an overlooked Warzone weapon category during Season 6. Despite containing some of the very best guns in Call of Duty's battle royale, players often avoid them due to high recoil in favour of more versatile options.

Marksman rifles are a hybrid between assault rifles (AR) and sniper rifles. Following recent weapon buffs and nerfs, there are a few that are capable of contending in mid-range and long-distance combat. But, what are they? We've got you covered.

Before we share more about the best Warzone marksman rifle, take a look at our guides showcasing the best sniper rifle and the latest intel on when the next double XP event takes place.

What is the best Warzone marksman rifle?

Although there are several marksman rifles to choose from, there are a couple that stand out from the crowd thanks to their superior firepower and versatility on the battlefield. For Season 6, the best Warzone marksman rifles are the Tempus Torrent and EBR-14.

The bolt-action rifle features incredible power capable of eliminating an opponent with a single bullet along with impressive mobility that creates plenty of versatility. As the cycle progresses, we'll continue to update and tweak our tier list to reflect the current meta.

While the EBR-14 and the Tempus Torrent sit at the top of the list, they're closely followed by the Lockwood MK2 which shares several similarities to the top tier. However, the lack of damage sees it slip into A tier.

The next tier contains the LM-S. The semi-automatic rifle packs a deadly punch but the high levels of recoil are extremely difficult to control in long-distance combat.

Sitting at the bottom of the list is the TAQ-M. Despite its incredible damage, it's almost impossible to control in mid-range and long-distance combat even with a strong attachment combination equipped.

How many marksman rifles are in Warzone?

There are a total of seven marksman rifles to use in Warzone. Each possesses a range of qualities and drawbacks but the two in our top tier are the only viable options to use as part of a loadout.

We expect the number of marksman rifles to increase as Infinity Ward adds new weapons to the arsenal. Once they appear, we'll compare and contrast them against the current crop and reveal if they're worth using.

When does Warzone Season 1 start?

With Season 6 now underway, attention is already turning towards Season 1 of the Modern Warfare 3 cycle. If leaks are accurate, the next seasonal update will go live at the beginning of December.

That's everything there is to know about the best Warzone marksman rifles. For more on the battle royale, check out our guides showcasing the best Warzone LMG and the latest intel on the Halloween skins available to unlock and buy.
