Our Warzone SMG tier list for November 2021 is here to break down which guns are the best to use as players begin to truly countdown the final days until the end of Season 6 and Verdansk.

From now until Dec. 2, the Warzone meta remains fairly stable as Activision and Raven Software have pretty much let The Haunting Halloween event do its thing, and are gearing up for the Operation: Flashback encore limited-time mode for Verdansk launch on Nov. 18. Before Season 1 and Vanguard integration arrive and drastically shift the meta once again, here are the best SMGs to use in Call of Duty: Warzone in November 2021.

S Tier

At this point in the Warzone meta, these four options will have you covered in close range engagements, plain and simple. While the OTs 9 and the Black Ops Cold MP5 are the two most dangerous SMGs to use for barrel-stuffing, the MAC-10 and PPSh-41 remain consistent, forgiving, mobile ADS SMGs.

A Tier

In A Tier are 10 SMGs that are quite good up close, but generally won't outpace the aforementioned S-Tier options. From the TEC-9 to the AK-74u, feel free to try out any of these options to see if you just simply prefer them over the more popular SMGs. The Modern Warfare MP5 is a great choice for those who play Warzone more casually, and aren't fond of constantly unlocking and ranking up guns to keep up with the meta. Introduced with The Haunting event just recently, the LAPA is a balanced option overall — definitely viable and has the ability to melt, but isn't one of the most consistent weapons due to its slow TTK if you miss the head and chest.

B Tier

  • PP19 Bizon
  • ISO
  • P90
  • Nail Gun
  • LC10

In the B Tier are six SMGs that are remain solid but could still use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider using them.

C Tier

Lastly, in C Tier are two SMGs that have fallen behind in the pack with the way things have settled down. Don't bother using them as they truly need a buff in order to be viable.
