Our Warzone assault rifle tier list for July 2021 is here to breakdown which of the guns are the best to use in Verdansk now that the community has had a chance to see how the Season 4 meta has shaken out.

Here are the best assault rifles to use in Season 4 of Call of Duty: Warzone in July 2021.

Warzone Assault Rifle Tier List July 2021

1. S Tier

Despite Raven Software's sudden June 30 nerf to the FARA 83's recoil, the Black Ops Cold War DLC weapon still reigns supreme in the assault rifle weapon class. In terms of Modern Warfare ARs, the RAM-7 is in a class of its own due to its damage. Lastly, the Cold War AK-47 and XM4 can be deadly in the right hands, both in mid-to-long ranges and up close, depending on how players build them.

2. A Tier

  • Krig 6
  • C58
  • AS VAL
  • CR-56 AMAX

In the A Tier, we have four options that players can still use and find a lot of success with. The Krig 6 may now be the easiest assault rifle to control in the game, but its damage can feel soft at times. The brand-new C58 was just starting to blossom, but after its hit in the recoil department, players may want to abandon ship. Meanwhile, the AS VAL can unquestionably put in work despite its limiting magazine options, while the CR-56 AMAX still remains viable, albeit a bit of a shell of what it once was.

3. B Tier

  • FFAR 1
  • M4A1
  • Grau 5.56
  • FAL
  • Groza

With the FFAR 1, M4A1, Grau 5.56 and FAL in particular, the B Tier is mainly made up of weapons that have mellowed out thanks to nerfs they've received over the months, but can still be decent. The Groza on the other hand, remains nothing to write home about for most.

4. C Tier

  • M13
  • FN Scar 17
  • AN-94
  • AK-47 (MW)
  • Kilo 141

In the C Tier, we have five ARs that are all pretty mediocre and could use some buffs to get them back into more custom loadout drops.

5. D Tier

  • QBZ-83
  • Oden
  • FR 5.56

Lastly, these three D-Tier assault rifles are really lacking a lot of departments and simply won't stand a chance in Verdansk at the moment.
