Our Warzone Pacific Mid-Season 1 sniper rifle tier list is here to break down which of the guns are the best to use in Caldera and Rebirth Island with the launch of Raven Software's Mid-Season Update.

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 sniper rifles to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific after the update.

Warzone Pacific Mid-Season 1 Sniper Rifle Tier List

S Tier

  • Kar98k (MW)
  • Swiss K31

Sitting atop the Warzone sniper rifle summit is the Modern Warfare Kar98k and the Swiss K31. After sharing the throne for a bit with the Swiss K31, the Kar98k (MW) has had a bit of an edge early on in the Warzone Pacific era thanks to it having the Focus perk, which negates the Flinch Resistance nerf seen in the Swiss K31. However, since the Swiss K31 continues to be such a popular option as well, it deserves to be in the S Tier as well.

A Tier

In A Tier are four snipers that are right behind the Modern Warfare Kar98k and Swiss K31. All of these options are top-tier viable.

B Tier

In B Tier are six options that are solid and remain generally very balanced to use. The AX-50 remains a fairly popular choice despite being one of the oldest tenured weapons in the game, while the rest remain solid options but nothing to write home about.

C Tier

  • M82
  • Rytec AMR
  • Dragunov

The C Tier includes guns that definitely need a buff in Warzone. As the story remains with semi-automatic snipers in Call of Duty, it's no surprise that the M82, Rytec AMR, and Dragunov all remain at the bottom of the list.
