Warzone Season 6 SMG tier list shouldn't be a surprise to veterans of Verdansk who prefer to play fast, up close and personal.

Just as in any level of competition in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer, submachine guns are essential to a majority of players' loadouts in Warzone. Here is the October 2020 tier list for the nine SMGs players can use in Warzone Season 6.

Warzone Season 6 SMG Tier List

1. S-Tier

MP5, MP7

With an extremely optimal blend of mobility, fire rate and damage, both the MP5 and MP7 are simply devastating at close range. While the MP5 does have a bit less range and a bit more recoil when compared to the MP7, its sheer stopping power, especially when hipfiring, is what makes it the best option for many. Try to combo the MP5 with an assault rifle and the MP7 with a sniper rifle to cover all damage ranges most effectively.

2. A-Tier

Uzi, PP19 Bizon, P90, AUG

Sitting right below the meta SMGs, the Uzi, PP19 Bizon, P90 and AUG are four viable options for those looking to switch it up while still having a consistent close-range firearm. With each of these SMGs having been fine tuned since the launch of Modern Warfare, feel free to test out each of them to see which you prefer.

3. B-Tier

Fennec, ISO, Striker 45

These three SMGs find themselves at the bottom of the tier list with one trait in common—they weren't released at launch. Whether it be their lack of statistical strength in certain categories on-paper, or simply not excelling at anything at all, avoid using the Fennec, ISO and Striker 45.
