Call of Duty: Warzone SMG Tier List for May 2021 is here as a new weapon looks to fly up the rankings in Season 3.

It's a strange time in Verdansk. Although there are many choices of weapons that are viable in the current meta, most of them are Assault Rifles. SMGs have taken a backseat to the Assault Rifles that can be built like an SMG, such as the FARA 83, Cold War AK-47, and even still the FFAR 1. Nonetheless, SMGs are still the more mobile of weapon choices and you'll find they come in handy during the close-quarters fights.

Warzone SMG Tier List May 2021

1. S-Tier

  • LC10
  • MP5 (Cold War)
  • MAC-10

These three kings still remain supreme, though the LC10 sticks out as the dominant SMG for the time being. The bullet velocity of the LC10 was increased at the beginning of Season 3, while the maximum damage of the MAC-10 saw a small decrease. The Mac-10 still remains a top tier choice, and the Cold War MP5 is still as great as it was in Season 2.

2. A-Tier

  • MP7
  • PPSh-41
  • MP5 (Modern Warfare)
  • Bullfrog
  • Fennec

A-Tier SMGs are seeing more usage in Season 3, as many of them have been long standing fan-favorites. Thanks to the massive balance to Season 2 meta weapons, more players are dusting off their MP5s and Bullfrogs once again. Barring any game breaking updates or changes, we'll continue to see these weapons posing threats in close quarter fights throughout the month of May.

3. B-Tier

  • AUG
  • AK-74u
  • P90

Not much to say about the B-Tier SMGs. These are falling into the category of weapons we see now and then, but not often enough. Usually chosen by people looking for something new to use, or something they've had good runs with, these SMGs are not so bad.

4. C-Tier

  • Uzi
  • PP19 Bizon
  • ISO
  • Striker 45

Believe it or not some people still swear by the Uzi, but realistically these weapons try to be the Assault Rifle versions of SMGs, and end up half committing on both fronts. This results short comings for the close quarters and at-distance fights, and so they should be be avoided.

5. D-Tier

  • KSP 45
  • Milano 821

Once again, the KSP remains at the bottom of the list. The Milano 821 was ok for ground loot, but now that it's out of the loot pool it won't be swimming again anytime soon.
