All of the selected weapons are hand-picked from the current meta and based on the most popular weapons professional Warzone players are using. This list will be updated regularly with each new Season.

#1 – FFAR

FFAR Assault Rifle - Black Ops Cold War Warzone

Trusty, powerful, and deadly up-close, the FFAR is the weapon to use if you want great strafe speed and amazing time to kill at medium and close range. The FFAR has a tremendous kick, so the huge learning curve will be controlling this beast at range while also maintaining your movement.

#2 – MAC-10

MAC-10 SMG: CoD Warzone

Meet your new favorite sidekick in the Warzone. Meet the “Bullet Hose”… erm, the MAC-10. This weapon is absolute insanity, capable of wiping enemies in an instant up close and even from afar. We don’t want to use the word “overpowered,” but if any gun is close to that, it’s this.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 5.9″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition – STANAG 53 Round Drum
  • Stock – SAS Combat Stock

#3 – DMR 14

DMR-14: CoD Warzone

Even after many nerfs, the DMR is still an amazing weapon to use in Warzone. Aim high, spray meticulously, and you’ll surely be taking down enemies in a breeze. If you’re on a mouse & keyboard, this might be your best fit.

#4 – M16

M16 - Black Ops Cold War Warzone

Burst-fire destruction is the highlight of the M16. With solid accuracy, you can down enemies in just two bursts, leading to crazy moments of wiping players quickly. Aim for the head, as headshots do significantly more damage than body shots.

  • Muzzle – Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel – 15.9″ Strike Team
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition – Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag

#5 – Diamatti

Looking for a pistol to run as a trusty side-arm in a Ghost class or just to have for close encounters? Look no further than the Diamatti.

Many players opt to use them dual-wield, but we find that it’s less accurate when going for those headshots. Just one Diamatti is plenty. You can consistently down enemies in three bursts.

#6 – AUG

Like its M16 counterpart, the AUG is a burst fire beast. Pair this up with an FFAR for CQC or a MAC-10 if you don’t want to deal with sharing an ammo pool between weapons. Be sure to aim for the head, as you may be able to take down enemies with just 2 bursts.

  • Muzzle – Agency Silencer
  • Barrel – 18.2″ Strike Team
  • Underbarrel – Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 45 Round Drum
  • Optic – Axial Arms 3x

#7 – LW3 – Tundra

The LW3 Tundra (or Tundra for short), is a high powered sniper capable of stable shots at long range, crippling any opponent you come in contact with. Stay alert and stay at range, as you’ll be able to soften up enemies before a close-range engagement can even begin.
