Our Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded SMG tier list is here to break down which of the guns are the best to use in CalderaFortune's Keep, and Rebirth Island with the launch of Raven Software's latest major update.

With the Season 4 Reloaded patch, although we didn't get an all-new SMG, a handful of major changes were made to options in the weapon class. From the Armaguerra 43, H4 Blixen and Marco 5 nerfs, to the UGR, Uzi and Black Ops MP5 buffs, here is a breakdown of how the SMGs stack up in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded SMG Rankings

S Tier

In the S Tier are seven SMGs that should continue to be elite in Season 4 Reloaded. Ultimately, perhaps the only "broken" option at the moment would be the Marco 5. The H4 Blixen and Armaguerra 43 did receive minor nerfs, but they should remain close behind. Meanwhile, the Type 100, Welgun, Sten and MP-40 have still translated to high K/D ratios for those using them, so feel free to keep doing so.

A Tier

In A Tier are a whopping 16 SMGs that are still top-tier viable and remain generally very balanced to use in Warzone. Essentially, these options are sitting right outside of the main meta, but are still able to get the job done and allow you to be competitive. The Black Ops Cold War MP5 and UGR received some decent buffs, so perhaps more players will start using them moving forward.

B Tier

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 Warzone Pacific era. The Uzi did get buffed as well but its best magazine option, the .41 AE 32-Round Mags, is still quite limited in capacity.

C Tier

  • KSP 45
  • P90
  • Striker 45
  • Nail Gun

Whether it's as a close-range or sniper support option, these C Tier SMGs have been behind in the pack for far too long and are not close to having a place in the meta.
