Best Weapons in Back 4 Blood (A Complete Tier List)

  • Best (S-Tier): M4 Carbine, Machete, Tac-14, Glock-23, Uzi, Frag Grenade
  • Good (A-Tier): AK-47, 357 Magnum, Fire Axe, M1A , M1911, RPK, 870-Express, Molotov, Explosive
  • Average (B-Tier): M-16, Hatchet, Bat, Glock-23 Auto, Beretta M9, Firecrackers

The S-tier weapons are the cream of the crops. Just what you need to get your zombie slayer mode on Back 4 Blood. Especially with the M4 Carbine and Uzi. The damage and control are a perfect balance.

The weapons in the A-Tier are some of the most fun to play with, but they require some skill to handle well, as they have either a slow rate of fire or a high recoil (ex-AK-47). Which if mastered makes the guns any zombie’s worst nightmare.

B-Tier is not particularly bad per se, but with so many better and more fun-to-use options out there, one would automatically replace the B-tier weapons with those. Although when you’re out of options these will be your best friends. Especially the Glock and the Bat.
