Midway through the debut season of the Warzone Pacific era, Raven continues to churn out patches in hopes of fixing issues and balancing the meta. With their latest patch, plenty of the player base's popular options at the moment received tweaks in particular. As such, here are the best SMGs to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific after the update.
Warzone Pacific Mid-Season 1 SMG Tier List
In the S Tier are five SMGs that have established themselves as ahead of the rest of the pack. The newest kid on the block, the Welgun, has proven to be slightly better than the MP-40. Meanwhile, although the MP-40 received a minor nerf to its damage range and lower extremities multipliers, these hits are marginal at best. Meanwhile, the OTs 9, Vanguard PPSh-41, and Owen Gun have certainly dropped drastically in popularity but have still translated to high K/D ratios for those using it so feel free to keep doing so.
In A Tier are six SMGs that are quite good up close, but generally won't outpace the aforementioned S-Tier options. Here, the M1912 "Tommy Gun," Type 100, and Sten join a lot of the former S Tier SMGs, including the Black Ops MP5 which unfortunately received hefty nerfs from Raven.
- Milano 821
- MP5 (MW)
- AUG (MW)
In the B Tier are a handful of SMGs that remain solid but could still use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider using them. These options have a proven track record of being decent, but will likely be nothing to write home about throughout the new Warzone Pacific era.
- PP19 Bizon
- Nail Gun
In C Tier are five options that are simply mediocre and definitely need a buff in Warzone. An unfortunate, but telling sign of the times is that even in the new Warzone Pacific era, all of these guns as well as the ones below it, save for the Nail Gun, are all from Modern Warfare.
- KSP 45
- Striker 45
Lastly, in D Tier are two SMGs that have been behind in the pack far too long. Don't bother using them as they truly need major buffs in order to be viable.
