Best Weapons to Use in Warzone Season 5

6. Swiss K31

Prior to Season 4 Reloaded, the story of the Swiss K31 was always that its bulky handling held it back from seriously competing with the Kar98k as the best sniper in the game. Well, after receiving a rework to its ADS animation and base reticle, Swiss K31 fans finally have a strong argument to place this gun at the top of its weapon class.

Not much needs to be said about this long-beloved weapon. The Kar98k remains an outstanding sniper, allowing any nimble player to rack up headshot feeds in style.

The best overall SMG and weapon to use at close range, the Modern Warfare MP5 is the go-to option for pro players for a reason. It's time-to-kill is unmatched by almost all of the weapons in the game, while its handling has remained as consistent from the day Warzone first launched,

3. EM2

From here on out, it's all about assault rifles, which make sense considering that is what Call of Duty has always been all about. Surprise, surprise. The early returns on the brand-new EM2 is that the TTK on this weapon are insanely good, the only issue is its recoil will be hard for many to deal with.

2. FARA 83

Despite its nerfs in recent patches, the FARA 83 remains a top-tier primary option thanks to its forgiving recoil pattern. This weapon will not fail players. Other guns may win out due to slight statistical advantages, but the FARA 83 will is as consistent of a gun to use as it gets.

1. C58

Even with the much-needed recoil correction of the C58's "no recoil" Royal & Kross 4x Optic, the AR continues to pretty much be the new CR-56 AMAX. If you can control its recoil, its damage output simply makes it slightly above the rest of the guns in the game.
