Our Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 sniper rifle 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 patch, although we didn't get a new sniper rifle, there were a handful of major changes made to options in the weapon class. As such, here is how the sniper rifles stack up in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.

Warzone Season 4 Sniper Rifle Rankings

S Tier

Sitting ever so comfortably now that their Flinch has been decreased by 12%, the ZRG 20mm and HDR should remain to be the best options in the weapon class, which says a lot about the state of snipers in Warzone considering these two are not all that easy to use.

A Tier

3-Line Rifle

In A Tier are seven snipers that appear to be right outside of the meta at the moment. The Modern Warfare Kar98k could see players return to using it now that its Flinch has been buffed. Ultimately, however, the main name to watch is the 3-Line Rifle, which received further buffs across the board.

B Tier

Swiss K31

In B Tier are four options that should remain decent to use. The Swiss K31 was a part of that group that had its Flinch buffed, but is still unimpressive for the most part since it isn't as light as the Modern Warfare Kar98k. The Pelington 703 is a pretty unexciting alternative to the LW3 - Tundra.

C Tier

The C Tier includes two rifles that have definitely needed some more buffs in Warzone. While the SP-R 208 did receive a buff to its Flinch, the more interesting changes to track are those tied to the Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle, which saw its Rate of Fire and Base Recoil buffed.
