War is always war. Going there with a blowpipe or a slingshot and believing you are making a killing is not exactly the best. Knowing what war equipment to have and how to unlock it is essential for survival in the first few hours of the game. Let's take a look at the best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from the beginning, or almost, to be able to get by in many of the thorny situations of the new Infinity Ward title.


We start from the idea that all the weapons in the game can be divided into a special "Tier" based on different characteristics such as handling, damage, reload speed, rate of fire and magazine capacity. The mix of these aspects gives us an overall evaluation ranging from C (poor) to S (excellent). The weapons that we are going to analyze are some of the Tier "S" and "A" We have classified them according to 4 fundamental peculiar characteristics:



Versatility The best weapons must allow the player to adapt to any situation, be it long or short range combat. They must know how to adapt to any circumstance.
High damage or rate of fire The best weapons in the game must certainly do a lot of damage but also be able to guarantee bursts of shots with high rates.
High accuracy or low recoil A great weapon must not only do a lot of damage, it must also be able to give the safety of the shot.
Easy to use In the last section of the article, we will select weapons for ease of use. These weapons must give newbies the opportunity to be competitive immediately.
