Our Black Ops Cold War Season 1 assault rifle tier list is here to settle the score for which of the 1980s firearms are strongest at the moment.
Along with the launch of Season One, Treyarch did some fine tuning to balance the FFAR 1, the Krig 6 and the AK-47 among others, so how have do they stack up? Here are the best assault rifles to use in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season One.
Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Assault Rifle Tier List
- Krig 6
Despite its nerfs, the AK-47 remains the king of Black Ops Cold War multiplayer due to its supreme time-to-kill (TTK), while the Krig 6 remains its closest rival for the more precise headhunters. While it can be argued that the AK-47 is more versatile thanks to its consistency in putting down enemies with body shots, the Krig 6 might be the best in class for those who prefer using an AR at AR ranges.
One of the newest guns in the game, the Groza has wasted little time establishing itself as a powerful option in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. It's just about in line with the rest of the ARs in TTK, who all sit just a hair behind the AK-47.
- FFAR 1
Contrary to the norm, this tier of ARs isn't significantly outclassed by the ones above, as it feels like the weapon class as a whole is pretty well balanced. The wild card is the FFAR 1, which was dominant, then nerfed to oblivion, and is now viable with the right attachments depending on who you ask.
