Entering Verdansk without knowing the best equipment can put us at a disadvantage. Nothing serious as Warzone is a rather balanced battle royale and with a little skill you can win even with the most excuse weapons, but have the right weapon will attract the odds of winning in our favor. Even if it is only thanks to a slightly better rate of fire, this is still an advantage to be taken into consideration. In this guide we talk about the best assault rifles in Call of Duty: Warzone, their characteristics and how they can change firefights.



All that matters

As in any shooter, the weapons available are very different from each other and you must therefore pay attention to some parameters. In this guide for Warzone we will analyze the best assault rifles through their main features. We are talking about a genre of weapons with excellent rates of fire without sacrificing too much accuracy. We will see which have the fastest reloads, the higher damage, the better cadences and going through other very important features. More specifically, our guide will address the analysis with this structure:

  • The damage profile, in the form Head | Chest | Stomach | Arts
  • The shots to kill, from the absolute minimum to the absolute maximum
  • The cadence, or the number of shots fired per minute
  • The capacity of the magazine
  • The charging time
  • Time to switch to Aiming Down Sight (ADS)

AK 47 - Warzone: the best assault rifles

The first on the list is a historical weapon for shooters. The AK-47 is a force of nature thanks to its high damage, which balances with a slight lack of accuracy. Through the patches it has seen several changes but still remains one of the best assault rifles in Warzone. With the addition of some modifications like the compensator, it can also become a lot lethal in both long and short range. Now let's see in detail its characteristics:



  • Damage profile: 56 | 42 | 35 | 35
  • Shots needed to kill: 2-4 | 3-5 | 4-7 | 5-8
  • Cadence: 560
  • Magazine capacity: 30
  • Charging time: 1.17 seconds
  • Time to target ADS: 300ms

M4A1 - Warzone: the best assault rifles

The M4A1 is one of the most versatile and well-balanced weapons in the game. The damage is not as high as that of the AK-47 but its accuracy, cadence and aim are a pleasure to behold. It also unlocks quickly to quickly become one of our best companions in battle. Here are its specs:

  • Damage profile: 42 | 28 | 28 | 28
  • Shots needed to kill: 3-6 | 4-9 | 5-12 | 6-14
  • Cadence: 800
  • Magazine capacity: 30
  • Charging time: 1.39 seconds
  • Time to target ADS: 250ms

M13 - Warzone: the best assault rifles

This rifle is probably the quick brother of the M4. The minor charging time e higher rate of fire make this weapon a great choice for medium and short range combat. Its damage is unfortunately the lowest in its category but it balances very well with the rest of the features:

  • Damage profile: 36 | 24 | 24 | 24
  • Shots needed to kill: 3-6 | 5-8 | 6-11 | 7-14
  • Cadence: 900
  • Magazine capacity: 30
  • Charging time: 1.30 seconds
  • Time to target ADS: 250ms



FN Scar - Warzone: the best assault rifles

A weapon found in the easy availability one of its greatest strengths. He manages to compete well with the AK in damage and hits to kill, but falls short of his magazine, reload time and aiming. To make it competitive it needs some improvements including: compensator, optical sight and FTAC Hunter to stabilize the aim. In case there aren't (or have) better guns, the FN Scar 17 is a good option to consider:


  • Damage profile: 56 | 35 | 35 | 35
  • Shots needed to kill: 2-4 | 3-5 | 4-7 | 5-8
  • Cadence: 570
  • Magazine capacity: 20
  • Charging time: 1.44 seconds
  • Time to target ADS: 350ms

Bonus weapon: FAL - Warzone: the best assault rifles

The FAL is one of the best assault rifles in all of Warzone, thanks to its very high DPS. It makes use of the fire mode semi-automatic to maintain good accuracy, therefore very versatile a medium-long range. It will quickly penetrate the armor of the enemies but you have to pay attention to its not indifferent defects. Charging takes a long time and the charger is small, enough to kill, but if we don't do the math right we will find ourselves caught. You can see here its characteristics at the extremes:


  • Damage profile: 72 | 54 | 45 | 45
  • Shots needed to kill: 2-3 | 3-5 | 3-6 | 4-8
  • Cadence: 470
