Our Warzone assault rifle tier list for November 2021 is here to break down which guns are the best to use as players begin to truly countdown the final days until the end of Season 6 and Verdansk.

From now until Dec. 2, the Warzone meta remains fairly stable as Activision and Raven Software have pretty much let The Haunting Halloween event do its thing, and are gearing up for the Operation: Flashback encore limited-time mode for Verdansk launch on Nov. 18. Before Season 1 and Vanguard integration arrive and drastically shift the meta once again, here are the best assault rifles to use in Call of Duty: Warzone in November 2021.

Warzone Assault Rifle Tier List November 2021

S Tier

  • EM2
  • AK-47 (BOCW)
  • XM4

At this point in the Warzone meta, the EM2, Black Ops Cold War AK-47 and XM4 are the clear best options for mid-to-long range engagements. Their TTKs and handling are simply a tier above the rest, and it comes down to preference between each of the three which players decide to main.

A Tier

C58

  • FARA 83
  • C58
  • QBZ-83
  • CR-56 AMAX
  • M4A1
  • Krig 6
  • FFAR 1
  • AS VAL
  • RAM-7
  • GRAV
  • STG 44

In A Tier are a wide variety of options that are top tier viable and remain generally very balanced to use in Warzone. The FARA 83 remains one of the most reliable ARs in the game, while the C58, QBZ-83, CR-56 AMAX, M4A1, Krig 6, RAM-7 and GRAV are all still sleeper favorites to use. The FFAR1 is really only viable as a sniper support option of course, as well as the AS VAL for those who play solos. Since the STG 44 is only available in the form of its Battle Pass Weapon Blueprints, it's tough to place it any higher due to players being unable to customize the new gun's attachments at the moment.

B Tier

  • Grau 5.56
  • M13
  • Groza

These weapons in B Tier remain viable, but could still use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider using them as shown by the AK-47 (BOCW) and XM4, which were here in previous tier lists. The Grau 5.56 is a great option for those who play Warzone more casually, and aren't fond of constantly unlocking and ranking up guns to keep up with the meta.

C Tier

AN-94

  • Kilo 141
  • FN Scar 17
  • FAL
  • AN-94

The C Tier includes rifles that definitely need a buff in Warzone. An unfortunate, but telling sign of the current meta is that all four of these guns, as well as the ones below it, are all from Modern Warfare.

D Tier

  • Oden
  • FR 5.56
  • AK-47 (MW)

At this point in the tier list, these ARs are not close to having a place in the meta. These three D-Tier assault rifles are really lacking a lot in a lot of departments and simply won't stand a chance at the moment.
