Warzone 2.0 Weapon Tier List

Like our other tier lists, this list will start with the S-Tier Weapons with the highest pick rate, popularity within the community, and dominance in the current meta. These weapons will help dominate Warzone with ease.

The next one in line is A-Tier weapons, with the most popularity and decent pick rates. Although they slightly fall behind their S-Tier counterparts, they can be swapped with the S-Tier weapons only if a player likes something particular about that weapon. They are not that dominant in the meta, but they still exist due to past exposure to the limelight.

The weapons in B-Tier are usable but would not offer the same magnitude of firepower that is available in S-Tier and A-Tier weapons. Consequently, these weapons have a pick rate below one and are generally not seen much in Warzone 2 lobbies.

Then comes the C-Tier weapons, which offer no additional benefit. As such, they have a zero pick rate. These weapons are not up to par with their S-Tier and A-Tier counterparts. These weapons are better left avoided if you want to dominate Warzone lobbies.

As with any other tier list, this is highly subjective and based entirely on our game experiences. Also, the tier list contains direct links to our optimal weapon loadout guide for these individual weapons, updated for the new seasonal update.

Warzone 2.0’s meta remains a mixture of mid-range and long-range gunfights. As the game is in its early stage, there is no fixed meta. However, as time passes, the game will slowly shift into a mid-range or long-range based meta.

For an overall rewarding Warzone experience, we recommend players use long-range and mid-range builds for ARs and close-range builds for SMGs to dominate the current meta.
