Our Warzone Season 4 assault rifle tier list is here to break down the best weapons to use in Call of Duty's hit battle royale now that the latest major weapons balancing patch have entered the mix.

In addition to adding the new Black Ops Cold War C58, Raven Software has made some major nerfs and buffs to a handful of guns in the weapon class. Will this be able to shake up primarily the mid-to-long range meta? Here are the best assault rifles to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.

Warzone Season 4 Assault Rifle Tier List 

S Tier

  • RAM-7
  • Krig 6
  • CR-56 AMAX
  • FARA 83
  • FFAR 1

After withstanding a pair of nerfs last month, the CR-56 AMAX has received yet another hit in Season 4 in the form of an upper torso damage multiplier nerf. With this being Raven Software's third hit to the longtime beloved gun, it's time to drop the top dog mainstay lower in the list. While the FARA 83 and FFAR 1 remain the two best ARs to use up close, perhaps the RAM-7 and Krig 6 will have free runway to take over the spotlight.

A Tier

  • AS VAL
  • AK-47 (CW)
  • XM4
  • M4A1
  • Grau 5.56
  • FAL
  • Groza
  • C85
  • AN-94
  • AK-47 (MW)

Despite already being a popular option, the XM4 received a damage multiplier buff, making it even more lethal. While the early returns on the new C58 assault rifle suggest that it could be the latest gun to take over the meta (à la MAC-10), it's best to start it off in the middle of the pack. Raven Software indicated that they wanted to drastically buff the Groza to put it more in a solid position in short to mid-range mobility-based AR builds. Although they delivered on the damage aspect, they also decreased its max damage range, so it remains to be seen if the Groza deserves more respect in the near future.

B Tier

  • FN Scar 17
  • M13
  • QBZ-83
  • Kilo 141
  • Oden
  • FR 5.56

These ARs simply won't stand a chance in Verdansk at the moment. There is some hope for the FN Scar 17, however, as Raven Software has ramped up its damage multipliers to improve its time-to-kill (TTK). While this is a welcome sight, the FN Scar 17 still sorely lacks the necessary magazine capacity to be viable in-game modes outside of solos.
