Our Warzone weapon tier list for August 2021 is here to breakdown which guns are the best to use in Verdansk '84 and Rebirth Island now that the community has had a chance to see how the Season 4 Reloaded meta has shaken out.

As content creators, pro players and casual gamers alike continue to discuss and experiment with different guns to see what truly got nerfed and buffed, here are the best weapons to use in Call of Duty: Warzone in August 2021.

Warzone Weapon Tier List August 2021

1. S Tier

Krig 6

  • C58
  • Krig 6
  • Kar98k
  • Swiss K31
  • MAC-10
  • MP5 (MW)
  • Milano 821
  • Bruen Mk9
  • PKM
  • HDR
  • ZRG 20mm
  • JAK-12

Sitting atop of the Warzone meta at the moment are the C58 and the Krig 6. Although most players will continue to opt for the Krig 6 due to its much less aggressive recoil pattern, the C58 is the best gun in the game in the right hands. The Kar98k and Swiss K31 remain outstanding snipers, allowing any nimble player to rack up headshot feeds in style. While the MAC-10 and Modern Warfare MP5 are the best SMGs in the game, the Milano 821 is the best sniper support option with the close-range assault rifles (e.g. RAM-7, FARA 83, FFAR 1 and AK-47 (CW)) simply not being able to compete up close in Season 4 Reloaded.

2. A Tier

SP-R 208

  • SP-R 208
  • FARA 83
  • MP5 (CW)
  • QBZ-83
  • LW3 - Tundra
  • Stoner 63
  • RPD
  • OTs 9
  • Gallo SA12
  • M19
  • CR-56 AMAX
  • AS VAL
  • Grau 5.56
  • M4A1
  • SA87
  • Pelington 703
  • Origin 12 Shotgun

In A Tier are a wide variety of options that are really good and remain generally very balanced to use in Warzone. From the post-nerf FARA 83 to the recently added OTs 9, feel free to try these guns out to see if you can find an underrated sleeper.

3. B Tier

MG 82

  • PPSh-41
  • Bullfrog
  • MP7
  • XM4
  • M13
  • Uzi
  • PP19 Bizon
  • MG 82
  • DMR 14
  • AK-47 (CW)
  • Groza
  • AK-74u
  • FFAR 1
  • FiNN LMG
  • M16
  • CARV.2
  • AX-50
  • AUG (MW)
  • Fennec
  • ISO
  • P90
  • KSP 45
  • Streetsweeper
  • Sykov

These weapons in B Tier remain viable, but could use a slight buff in order for more players to seriously consider mastering them. While the higher end of this tier could probably be fine for players to use regularly in their loadouts, it gets pretty dicey by the bottom of the list.

4. C Tier

Nail Gun

  • Nail Gun
  • RAM-7
  • Kilo 141
  • FN Scar 17
  • FAL
  • AN-94
  • VLK Rogue
  • R9-0 Shotgun
  • Diamatti
  • Renetti
  • AMP63

The C Tier includes guns that definitely need a buff in Warzone. From the Nail Gun to the RAM-7, Kilo 141 and FN Scar 17, these are mostly guns that were pretty strong back in their heydays, but simply are not worth players' time in Season 4 Reloaded.

5. D Tier

Hauer 77

  • Striker 45
  • AUG (CW)
  • SKS
  • M82
  • Oden
  • FR 5.56
  • Hauer 77
  • M60
  • EBR
  • X16
  • LC10
  • MG34
  • Holger-26
  • AK-47 (MW)
  • Model 680
  • Magnum
  • M91
  • Type 63
  • Rytec AMR
  • 1911 (MW)
  • 1911 (CW)
  • 725

At this point in the tier list, these guns from here on out don't have a place in the meta at all. The most notable weapon in here is the LC10, which has drastically fallen from grace with major nerfs to its maximum damage, minimum damage and headshot multiplier values after the Season 4 Reloaded patch.

6. F Tier

.50 GS

  • .357
  • Mk2 Carbine
  • Crossbow (MW)
  • Crossbow (CW)
  • Dragunov
  • .50 GS

There is little to no hope for these weapons in F Tier, as well as those who happen to pick them up in game. If you're in the Gulag, do what you need to do. Otherwise, look to swap out these guns from your inventory immediately.
