April 16, 2024: To reflect the meta, we've updated the Warzone SMG tier list ranking each one from best to worst.

What is the best Warzone SMG to use in the battle royale? That's one question on the minds of Warzone fans preparing to drop into the action once again.

With Season 3 Reloaded on its way and Raven Software continuing to apply numerous buffs and nerfs to Call of Duty's battle royale, the strongest SMG is a hot topic of conversation among players looking to gain the upper hand in close-quarters combat.

In this guide, find our Warzone Urzikstan SMG tier list ranking each weapon from best to worst.

What is the best Warzone Urzikstan SMG?

Determining the best Warzone SMG is a tricky task. With nine to choose from and each one possessing a wide range of characteristics, there's one to suit all styles of play.

Currently leading the charge are the RAM-9, HRM-9, and AMR9 thanks to their impressive rate of fire, high mobility, and strong damage output capable of shredding through any opposition in close-range combat.

There's very little separating the Warzone SMG selection. Below the top tier, there are plenty of choices when looking for an alternative. The likes of the ISO 9mm and the Fennec 45 come with plenty of firepower but their lack of versatility lets you down in the heat of battle.

Closely following the A tier is the B tier containing even more variety. The PDSW 528 and Lachmann Sub come with huge magazines as standard and as the first season of the battle royale progresses, there's always a chance the list moves around.

As the meta continues to evolve, we'll be sure to continue updating our SMG tier list with any broken builds and weapons that are worth avoiding.
