The PUBG weapon tier list May 2020 is largely the same as previous iterations as relatively few changes have hit the game's balance ecosystem. No new guns made it into the battle royale outside of the Mosin Nagant, which shares its stats with the Kar98k. The M249 received a nerf on consoles, but it remains among the most powerful weapons in the game.

S Tier

  • AWM
  • Groza
  • M249

Despite its console nerf, the M249's firepower is unparalleled. On PC it's just as devastating as always.

A Tier

  • M24
  • Kar98k or Mosin Nagant
  • SKS
  • Mk14 EBR
  • SLR
  • Mini 14

Snipers still dominate PUBG. In almost all cases single-shot damage outweighs all other variables. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference, but provided one is accurate, that high peak is worth the drop in consistency.

B Tier

  • M416
  • AKM
  • SCAR-L
  • M16A4
  • QBZ95
  • Beryl M762
  • Mk47 Mutant

The 5.56 assault rifles typically outclass their 7.62 counterparts because of their easier handling and high fire rate.

C Tier

  • S1897
  • Vector
  • Tommy Gun
  • Micro Uzi
  • DP-28
  • S686

C Tier is full of situational weapons and subpar swaps for assault rifles.

D Tier

  • VSS
  • Winchester
  • S12K

The D Tier is for the guns that still have a use case outside of memes. Below this point weapons drop off into uselessness.
