If you’re looking for a versatile but deadly weapon class to use in Warzone 2, look no further than the Assault Rifles.

5. M4

M4 Assault Rifle in Warzone 2

It’s almost impossible to go wrong with the classic M4 Assault Rifle in Warzone 2, we just can’t rank it above any of the other options in this list because it’s more of a jack of all trades, master of none.

The M4 will serve you well in almost any situation, having low recoil and decent bullet velocity which result in a fast TTK. It’s extremely easy to use, and the perfect weapon for players who are just starting out.

4. M13B

While the M13B doesn’t quite pack the same punch as the original Warzone’s version, it’s still a very powerful weapon.

With low recoil and a fast fire rate, the M13B is an incredibly forgiving weapon that kills enemies fast as well. Whether you’re trying to beam far-away players or rip someone off a head glitch, you’ll find the M13B a great choice.

3. Kastov 762

Both the RPK and Vaznev-9k have been quickly picking up traction as the best in their class, and Warzone 2’s Kastov 762 acts as a versatile middle ground between the two.

The Kastov 762 can be built almost any way you want, serving you as either a long-range beamer or mobile Sniper Support. Its only downside is it’s one of the most bouncy weapons in the top five Assault Rifles, but those bullets hit hard.

2. Kastov-74u

What makes Warzone 2’s Kastov-74u so powerful is that it’s the perfect hybrid between an Assault Rifle and SMG.

Boasting more mobility and a faster time to kill than a traditional Assault Rifle but more range than an SMG, there’s no better weapon to pair with a Sniper Rifle such as the Victus XMR. Just build the Kastov-74u for mobility and you’ll be almost unstoppable at close to medium range.

1. TAQ-56 – Best Assault Rifle in Warzone

After Warzone players were begging for SCAR buffs, it’s finally meta thanks to the TAQ-56 being the best Assault Rifle in the game.

The TAQ-56 includes an element of what makes every other Assault Rifle great, combining them into the perfect package. Whether you’re going for a more mobile iron sight build or equipping a scope for those longer-range fights, you’ll be killing players with ease.

The TAQ-56 is slightly harder to use than the Lachmann-556 and M13B but the damage you’ll be dishing out makes for a worthwhile trade.
