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.
