Now that the CR-56 AMAX has seen a nerf in Call of Duty: Warzone, many assault rifles are looking to take the place as "Best AR in Warzone" for Season 3. There is an abundance of options, but based on all the available ARs and loadout options, we've selected our three favorites as the best after the AMAX nerf.

Here's our list of the best ARs in Warzone Season 3, post CR-56 AMAX nerf.

1. Krig-6

The Krig-6 has been given a buff at around the same time the AMAX received a nerf, making it potentially next in line for the best in the game. What it lacks a bit in mobility it more than makes up for in firepower and ability to shoot from range. The recoil with the field agent grip attachment is barely noticeable and allows you to put in steady shots on enemies from middle to far distance. Right now, we feel like, after the AMAX nerf, this buff may mean more players will run through Verdansk with the Krig-6 as one of their weapons.

2. FARA 83

Of course, the Krig-6 does face competition from the CR-56 AMAX's partner in crime for many players, the FARA 83. The FARA allows you to move around so agile while having more than enough firepower to put down all enemies that stand in your way.

After the FFAR got a nerf, the FARA 83 got a buff, and since the buff, this gun has been one of the best AR options in Warzone, both to run as your primary weapon or secondary alongside another AR like the AMAX. For duel-rifle-wielding players, maybe consider running this alongside one of our other two top AR options instead of the nerfed AMAX, you might find that the meta still revolves around this rifle.

3. FFAR

However on the contrary, after NICKMERCS more recently uploaded a video on the FFAR's revival, many players, including us, went to see if the video was true, and it is. With the specific loadout below, NICKMERCS showed us that despite the nerf, the FFAR is still viable in Warzone:

  • Muzzle: Flashguard
  • Barrel: 19.5" Task Force
  • Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd
  • Reargrip: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The fire-rate and mobility of the FFAR is hard to ignore. According to NICKMERCS, pro players have found this build and it feels as if "it's back like it never left." With little recoil and great range and power, the FFAR is still one of the best not just ARs but overall guns in Warzone
