What is the best Assault Rifle in Warzone Season 2? Assault Rifles are the bread and butter weapon in Call of Duty, and its battle royale is no exception to this principle. They're versatile, being both effective at range and in close quarter situations. Most case, Assault Rifles also allow players to remain extremely mobile in Verdansk.

What is the Best Assault Rifle in Warzone Season 2?

Spoiler alert from Almxnd's tweet above, but we're going to have to give this one to the CR-56 AMAX. Although it's a close call, there are a few reasons why the best Assault Rifle is not Cold War's FFAR 1. The AMAX has the ability to perform well at range, and it's recoil pattern makes it easy to control at close range while aiming down sights.

Additionally, the AMAX at its best is a 2-4 shots to kill weapon. Compared to the FFAR, which is a 3-4 shots to kill. At range, the FFAR damage is dropped significantly while the AMAX can still hold its own. In a close range fight, the winner would most likely be whoever shot first. At range, the AMAX should always win (not counting player-to-player skill level of course).

The AMAX also pairs nicely with an SMG, such as the MAC-10, making it suitable for a high TTK (time to kill) class with any close-quarters weapon. It's even a great pairing for the FFAR with an Overkill class set up. Our recommended attachments are:

  • Muzzle - Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel - XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic - VLK 3.0
  • Under barrel - Ranger Foregrip or Commando Foregrip (Hardly a noticeable difference in performance, so it's dealer's choice)
  • Ammunition - 45 Round Mags

The call is very close, but at the end of the day consistency beats everything. The AMAX is the best Assault Rifle in Warzone Season 2.
