Best LMGs in Warzone 2: Every Season 3 Light Machine Gun ranked
Warzone 2 features several powerful LMGs that can dominate in long-range gunfights, but which one is the best? Here’s our complete ranking of every LMG in Warzone 2 Season 3.
There are many great long-range options in Warzone 2, and while Snipers tend to steal the limelight, LMGs are extremely dominant and have become a very popular weapon category in the game, with many taking advantage of their power.
For those looking to use an LMG, but are unsure of which to go with, we’ll go over all of the LMGs that you can use in Warzone 2, ranking them all from best to worst.
Here’s our ranking of the best LMGs in Warzone 2 Season 3.
Best Warzone 2 LMGs ranked list
Warzone 2 has six LMGs in Season 3, so if you’re struggling to decide which one to use, here’s all of them ranked from best to worst:
- RAAL MG
- Sakin MG38
- RAPP H
- 556 Icarus
- HCR 56
Best Warzone 2 LMGs
6. HCR 56
The HCR 56 is not necessarily a bad weapon in Warzone 2, but out of all of the LMGs, it’s the weakest link. This is mainly because other weapons in its class are superior when it comes to the LMG category’s main appeal, which is damage and fire rate.
5. 556 Icarus
The 556 Icarus is a versatile LMG and it’s a great option for those who would prefer a more Assault Rifle-like LMG in Warzone 2. This LMG has a great fire rate, recoil control, mobility, and handling, making it a top option for those who aren’t fans of heavy LMGs.
However, it lacks damage and accuracy across long ranges, hence its position on the list.
4. RAPP H
The RAPP H has the fastest fire rate out of all the LMGs in Warzone 2, and that’s its main appeal. Similarly to the 556 Icarus, the RAPP H is extremely versatile thanks to its fire rate, but it beats it in range, which just gives it the edge on Al Mazrah’s long-range sights.
Whether you’d like a heavy LMG or more of an Assault Rifle build, the RPK can do either, catering to whichever style the player prefers. While it received a minor nerf to its damage in Season 3, it’s still a solid choice.

2. Sakin MG38
The number two spot goes to the Sakin MG38 which is one of the best long-range options in Warzone 2. With great damage, range, and easy-to-control recoil, the Sakin MG38 is an absolute monster.
The Season 3 update did not alter the weapon, but Season 2 Reloaded saw its damage range reduced. However, it continues to be an extremely effective LMG that’s easy to handle.
1. RAAL MG – Best LMG in Warzone 2
The RAAL MG surpasses the Sakin MG38 in Season 3 to claim the title of best Warzone 2 LMG. Whether you’re playing on Ashika Island or Al Mazrah, the RAAL MG is as reliable of a long-range weapon as you’ll find.
It received a minor nerf to its headshot damage in Season 3. However, this was balanced out by major buffs to its damage profile in semi-auto mode. While we still recommend using the weapon in its standard form, this added versatility is not to be underestimated.
With the correct attachments, you can smooth out the RAAL MG’s recoil, allowing you to easily stay on target. Given its impressive TTK and damage range, the RAAL MG is our top LMG option.
