Our Warzone weapon tier list for August 2022 is here to go over which of the guns are the best to use now that the new meta has settled down a bit once again after the launch of Raven Software's latest balancing update.

Since the initial Season 4 Reloaded patch, Warzone players have seen a handful of nerfs and buffs made at a rapid pace. As such, here is how the weapons stack up in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded in August 2022.

August 2022 Warzone Weapon Rankings

S Tier

These options in S Tier all form Warzone's weapon meta moving forward. The Marco 5 is perhaps the lone absolute overpowered option in its respective role, demonstrating just how wide open the game's go-to meta is at the moment. Since our last weapon tier list, the Kilo 141 has sadly been nerfed, while the VLK Rogue has been extinguished of its rage-inducing abilities.

A Tier

In A Tier are a wide variety of options that are top tier viable and remain generally very balanced to use in Warzone. Essentially, these options are right outside of the main meta but are still able to get the job done and allow you to be competitive. This group includes the ever-viable Grau 5.56, MAC-10 and Modern Warfare Kar98k.

B Tier

These weapons in B Tier remain viable in Season 4 Reloaded, but could all use some buffs to make more players seriously consider mastering them. Overall, these weapons are just fine but don't have anything that makes them stand out as fun or exciting options to use. A lot of these are fairly popular still but aren't as statistically sound compared to the guns above.

C Tier

The C Tier includes guns that definitely could use a buff in Warzone. Taking a look at the list of options here, there just aren't any inspiring names worth grabbing in a custom loadout drop at the moment.

D Tier

At this point in the tier list, these guns don't have a place in the meta at all. Although the higher end of this tier could perhaps be fine for players to still somehow get a kill or two, it gets pretty dreadful by the bottom of the list.
