Thus far in Season 5, the Grau 5.56 has legitimately been one of the top-tier ARs to use at long range. With its dependable recoil control and attachment setup that stood the test of time, the Grau 5.56 is a no-brainer option to recommend.

  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4" Archangel
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic

4. Vargo 52

Remaining to be one of Warzone's most underrated weapons for whatever reason, the Vargo 52 more than holds its own at longer ranges with its low recoil and consistent TTK.

  • Barrel: 18.6" Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Magazine: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

A weapon that's certainly been better in previous months, the KG M40 still remains in the top-three despite its nerfs in Season 5. It's simply going to take a bit more changes for Warzone's most feared players to stop using it.

  • Barrel: Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 60 Round Drums

  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
