While the Warzone meta changes with every new update and content drop, there have been a number of weapons that have remained staple picks throughout each season. 

Warzone features plenty of deadly weapons, but Assault Rifles tend to lead the charge more often than not. This weapon category offers fantastic damage, incredible accuracy, and great range — making it the most dominant class in the entire game. Versatility is imperative in Warzone, so it’s not hard to see why ARs remain such a staple pick among both competitive and casual players. 


Whether you wish to beam your foes with laser-like precision or simply want a do-it-all gun you can rely on, you’ll want to add an AR to your loadout. However, not all Assault Rifles in Warzone are the same. In fact, there are only a few that are truly worth leveling up and using. To help you blast through Warzone’s Season 2 update, we’ve put together a collection of the best Assault Rifles and the attachments you should be using. 

6. Best M4A1 Warzone loadout

It’s not hard to see why the M4A1 has remained a staple pick.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic 
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The M4A1 has been the dominant Assault Rifle in Modern Warfare since the game released. While its moderate recoil keeps it from being the single best pick, its high damage and great range make it one of the most versatile ARs in Warzone. 


The M4A1 can be kitted out in a multitude of different ways, but this build is all about bolstering the M4’s range. The added 60 rounds also enable you to punish multiple players, giving you the potential to claim those all-important squad wipes. 

5. Best Grau 5.56 Warzone loadout

Have you ever seen an ironsight so clean?
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4” Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Grau has the cleanest ironsight in the entire game, which frees up an extra attachment slot when creating the perfect loadout. While the Grau’s lack of optic may make it slightly harder to remain accurate at a distance, it does give you the edge in close to medium engagement ranges.  


Despite receiving several nerfs, the Grau still rewards those who prefer to aggressively push their foes. In fact, this gun’s overall speed enables players to quickly snap onto their targets and put an end to their game-winning dreams. 

4. Best Kilo 141 Warzone loadout

The Kilo 141 has been one of the strongest guns in Warzone for a few seasons now.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8” Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Kilo 141 has long been a dominant Assault Rifle in Warzone thanks to its incredible accuracy, minimal recoil, and fantastic damage range. In fact, this AR has proved so devastating that the majority of the player base utilized it in previous seasons. 


With this loadout, you’ll be able to effortlessly beam players from all distances without much recoil. Simply click on your target and let the bullets fly. Even in light of the nerfs, the Kilo still remains a staple pick in the AR category.

3. Best FARA 83 Warzone loadout

The FARA 83 has a ludicrous rate of fire.
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15.5” Contour
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag

This lightning-fast AR was released as part of Warzone’s Season 2 update, which introduced new operators, modes, maps, weapons, and more. While the FARA 83 may be the new kid on the block, it has been quick to enter our meta AR tier list.


The FARA 83 comes kitted out with a blisteringly quick rate of fire, high damage profile, and low recoil pattern, which make it absolutely devastating in close to mid-range engagements. However, just like most Black Ops Cold War guns, the FARA 83 does struggle to kill targets at a distance.

As a result, you’ll want to consider pairing it with one of Warzone’s best snipers to help with those long-range kills.

2. Best CR-56 AMAX Warzone loadout

Activision / Infinity Ward
The CR-56 AMAX may have a little more recoil, but it is still a viable option.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags 

The CR-56 AMAX (or the Galil) has remained a popular pick since its introduction in Warzone Season 4. This AR may have a much slower rate of fire, but this enables players to remain accurate across all ranges. If you are willing to look past this, you’ll be rewarded with an Assault Rifle that can melt through opponents in just a few hits. 

The most popular loadout is all about pushing the CR-56 AMAX to its ranged limits, while also keeping the gun’s ADS speed to a minimum. Don’t be put off by the AMAX’s 45 Round clip, as this AR is capable of pumping out some truly dizzying damage. 

1. Best FFAR 1 Warzone loadout

Activision / Infinity Ward
The FFAR is currently the most dominant gun in Warzone.
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 round fast mag

One of the best ARs in the mix has been the FFAR. Very few weapons in Warzone’s Gunsmith can match its accuracy. Not only that, but it’s well-balanced in every other category, making it one of the easiest weapons to pick up and win with.

Some of the attachments for the ideal FFAR loadout aren’t unlocked until the very end of the weapon’s progression, however. So you’ll have plenty of time to warm up with this beastly AR until it can reach its full potential.

So there you have it, the best ARs in Call of Duty Warzone. Be sure to give each of these loadouts a go and see which one works for you.
