With such a wide variety of weapons to choose from, our Call of Duty: Warzone Weapon Tier List for April 2021 focuses on the best of the best in each tier. For example, we've left the MAC-10, LC10, and Groza off of this list, but they still rank as S-Tier or A-Tier weapons.

Without further delay, let's dive into the best of the best from S to F tier weapons in Warzone.

Warzone Weapon Tier List April 2021

1. S-Tier

  • AUG (Cold War)
  • FFAR 1
  • LW3 - Tundra
  • Kar98k

At least one of these weapons are on everyone's loadouts. Sometimes even two of these four. While everyone is awaiting nerfs to both the Cold War AUG and the FFAR 1, we'll continue to see these weapons dominate Verdansk. It's safe to say that Season 2 saw the LW3 - Tundra took over as the best Sniper Rifle to use in Warzone, while the Kar98k remains tried and true.

2. A-Tier

  • MP5 (Cold War)
  • Grau 5.56
  • Gallo SA12
  • Riot Shield

A-Tier weapons are always incredibly strong and reliable. Arguably, these weapons don't really need a balance, nerf, or buff. They are as close to perfect as they can be. Not every weapon can be top dog, and sometimes second really is the best.

3. B-Tier

  • RPG
  • Streetsweeper
  • SP-R 208
  • Fennec

Now we're getting into that area where everyone rolls their eyes. The truth is that these weapons put out damage, come in handy when called upon, but B-Tier weapons have always been "you miss, you lose" type of weapons (SP-R 208 might be the exception here). If you have an RPG, and don't down the enemy on the first rocket, everyone is coming for you.

4. C-Tier

  • Krig 6
  • P90
  • Kali Sticks
  • AX-50

Krig 6 and P90 are both accurate weapons when built properly, but the damage output makes them hard to counter 1-v-1s where you don't shoot first. Sometimes you shoot first and you still lose using these weapons. The AX-50 is not a bad choice for a Sniper Rifle, but it really relies upon you seeing the enemy first. Kali Sticks are a fun and mobile weapon to use, the only downfall is that you're sacrificing all the range of a firearm.

5. D-Tier

  • Shadow Hunter Crossbow
  • SKS
  • Combat Knife
  • PP19 Bizon

Outside of Solos, and maybe even Duos playlists, these weapons are ineffective. Still, they're a fun mix-up and easy to use. FaZe Clan member Swagg has a video as recent as December 2020 where he effectively used the SKS in a Warzone lobby.

6. F-Tier

  • Dragunov
  • FR 5.56
  • Rytec AMR
  • 725

There is no reason to use these weapons in Warzone, outside of loot drops off of landing.
