Our Warzone Season 3 weapon 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 latest major update.

With the Season 3 patch, not only did we get the new Nikita AVT assault rifle and the M1916 marksman rifle, but we also saw some major changes made to a wide range of weapons. As such, here is how the weapons stack up in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 3.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Weapon Rankings

S Tier

These options in S Tier make up those that are expected to be most relevant in Warzone's weapon meta moving forward. The Black Ops Cold War AK-47, JAK-12, Milano 821 and MP-40 appear to be the most likely to dominate in their respective roles, while the rest of the options here could certainly still emerge as the go-to weapons, especially after the sniper rifle rework.

A Tier

MG42

In A Tier are a wide variety of options that are top tier viable and remain generally very balanced to use in Warzone. Essentially, these options are right outside of the main meta, but are still able to get the job done and allow you to be competitive. The MG42, DP27, Type 11, BAR, AX-50, Armaguerra 43, MP5 (BOCW), PP19 Bizon and Streetsweeper remain right behind those in S Tier, as they are still great options for those comfortable using them. For now, the all-new Nikita AVT will slot in here as it appears to be an excellent sniper support option.

B Tier

These weapons in B Tier remain viable in Season 3, but could all use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider mastering them. Overall, these weapons are just fine but don't have anything that makes them stand out as fun or exciting options to use. A lot of these are fairly popular still but aren't as statistically sound compared to the guns above. For now, the all-new M1916 will slot in here as it appears to be fun to use for medium range, but having to use sniper ammo will make it annoying to truly run.

C Tier

The C Tier includes guns that definitely could use a buff in Warzone. While those such as the Nail Gun have become weak after receiving numerous nerfs, others such as the G-43 simply run out of ammo much too quickly to be viable.

D Tier

Striker 45

  • AK-47 (MW)
  • FR 5.56
  • AUG (BOCW)

  • Gracey Auto
  • KSP 45
  • Striker 45
  • 725

At this point in the tier list, the guns don't have a place in the meta at all. Although the higher end of this tier could perhaps be fine for players to get a kill or two, it gets pretty dreadful by the bottom of the list. We're also throwing the new Whitley LMG in here for now as, unfortunately, it seems as if its recoil pattern is just too unusable to possibly be a decent option.

F Tier

Dragunov

  • Magnum
  • .357
  • Mk2 Carbine
  • Crossbow (MW)
  • Crossbow (BOCW)
  • Dragunov

There is little to no hope for these weapons in F Tier, as well as those who happen to pick them up in-game. If you're in the Gulag, do what you need to do. Otherwise, look to swap out these guns from your inventory immediately.
