Our Warzone assault rifle tier list for July 2022 is here to go over which of the guns are the best to use now that the new meta has settled down a bit once again after the launch of Raven Software's latest balancing update.

Since the initial Season 4 patch, Warzone has seen the gap closing a bit between the absolutely overpowered options and the viable ones in the AR class. As such, here is how the assault rifles stack up in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 in July 2022.

July 2022 Warzone Assault Rifle Rankings

S Tier

In the S Tier are eight ARs that remain to be key parts of the meta in Season 4. For now, the NZ-41 remains at the top but just barely, as the KG M40, M13, Cooper Carbine, BAR and Vargo 52 continue to draw closer and closer to changing that. Meanwhile, the Nikita AVT, AS44 and Cooper Carbine remain to be the best sniper support AR options.

A Tier

In A Tier are a wide variety of options that are top-tier viable and remain generally balanced to use in Warzone. Essentially, these ARs are sitting right outside of the main meta, but are still able to get the job done and allow you to be competitive. Continuing the trend discussed earlier, now is as good of a time as any to bring out those long-lost fan favorites like the Black Ops Cold War AK-47, Grau 5.56 and M4A1.

B Tier

These weapons in B Tier remain viable, but could still use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider using them. Unfortunately, this is where the fun stops. Ultimately, some of these are fairly popular still, but just aren't as statistically sound compared to the guns above.

C Tier

  • FR 5.56
  • AK-47 (MW)
  • FN Scar 17

Whether it's for long-range or sniper support, these C Tier rifles are still not close to having a place in the meta and definitely need some buffs in Warzone.
