Best Assault Rifles in COD Warzone

In this post, we’ve listed down the 10 assault rifles that are pretty effective in Warzone. The Grau 5.56 came out to be the best AR, followed closely by M4A1. But take note that these weapons don’t have much of a difference when it comes to damage and other attributes.

It is very tricky to choose objectively what the best assault rifle in Call Of Duty: Warzone is. But it should be something that has a relatively high damage profile and fire rate, less recoil and should not greatly affect your movement. With those factors being considered, here’s our top ten ARs you can use in Warzone battle royale.

In Warzone, it’s difficult to down an enemy regardless of the range, unless you have a pretty powerful weapon or pretty accurate with sniper rifles. That’s why when it comes to assault rifles, it’s always better to pack with high-capacity mags, so that during an encounter, you won’t have to several times just to finish off an enemy or two.

10. Oden

The Oden is the hardest-hitting AR in Warzone. It can decimate enemies even at incredible ranges. A 250-HP enemy can be killed by this weapon in 4 to 7 shots. You just need to get used to it. Because of a meager 20-round mag, significant recoil and slow fire rate, it deserves to be at the bottom of our best assault rifle list. As a personal preference, the following attachments are best for this assault rifle:


  • Barrel – Oden Factory 810mm
  • Optic – Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex
  • Stock – FTAC XL Elite Comb
  • Underbarrel – Tactical Foregrip
  • Rear Grip – Stipple Grip Tape

9. FN Scar 17

This AR is absolutely usable if there are no other options. It has high damage profile but with 20-round mag and slow fire rate. You should come across a lot of this lying on the floor at the start of the match. It is second to the last on this list but if you’ve adapted to it, you can still down enemies with few shots. Here are the attachments that could give this AR a little boost:

  • Barrel – Forge TAC 20″ LB
  • Stock – FTAC Collapsible Stock
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip – Stippled Grip Tape
  • Perk – Sleight of Hand

8. AK-47

In Modern Warfare multiplayer, this weapon is likable and it brings with it a good punch at every shot. However, its recoil is what sent this assault rifle almost at the bottom of our list. The only advantage it has among other assault rifles is that it reloads faster than any other gun in Call of Duty Warzone battle royale. With the following attachments, you can improve its attributes:

  • Barrel – 23.0″ RPK Barrel
  • Laser – Tac Laser
  • Stock – FSS Close Quarters Stock
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip – Stippled Grip Tape

7. FAL

The FAL assault rifle is a little weaker than Oden as far as damage is concerned. It can decimate enemies from a long range but it’s a lot more capable when used in close to mid range as it has fast rate of fire, and a manageable recoil. You can improve it’s attributes by adding the following attachments for CoD Warzone battles:

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – XRK Marksman
  • Optic – Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 30 Round Mag

6. RAM-7

The RAM-7 is a likable assault rifle in Call of Duty Warzone as it packs almost the same damage as the M4A1 but has a higher rate of fire like that of the M13. It’s a weapon that you really have to get used to before it becomes effective as its recoil veers off to the left and bounces a lot every shot. But you can minimize RAM-7’s shortcomings by giving it the following attachments:

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – XRK Ranger
  • Optics – G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel – Tactical Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 50 Round Mag

5. Kilo 141

The Kilo 141 comes pretty close to Grau and M4A1 as far as damage and stability are concerned. Just like any other weapons in Warzone, you need to get used to it to unleash its full potential. And if you’re looking for an assault rifle that can single-handedly down a squad without reloading, then this bad guy will do the job for you with its 100-round mag. But if you don’t want to sacrifice mobility, having a 60-round mag will do as well. You can even make Kilo 141 deadlier with the following attachments:

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optics – Solozero Optics Mini Reflex
  • Stock – FSS Close Quarters Stock
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip – Stippled Grip Tape

4. FR 5.56

The effectiveness of the FR 5.56 greatly depends on the user. At medium or long range, its 3-round burst can be deadly when the enemy is hit at chest height. But apparently, it can easily be outclassed by the M4A1, Grau and even the M13. The following attachments can best help make this assault weaponmore effective in CoD Warzone:

  • Barrel – FR 24.4″ Sniper
  • Optics – G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Stock – FORGE TAC Ballast Pack
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag

3. M13

The M13 is a very versatile assault rifle and probably one of the best in Call of Duty Warzone. With higher fire rate and fast handling, it becomes pretty useful in close to medium ranges. But with proper attachments, it can also be used for long ranges. Despite the M13’s low damage profile, it is still pretty effective due to its higher rate of fire and lower recoil. Needless to say, you can spray bullets at the enemy with laser precision. That would be enough to knock the enemy down in a such a short time. The following are the best attachments for this assault weapon:

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – Tempus Marksman
  • Optic – Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel – Tactical Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag

2. M4A1

It is not surprising that the M4A1 and Grau 5.56 battle the top spot. This weapon has always been one of the favorites in Call of Duty Modern Warfare multiplayer, and it’s still true even in Warzone. It has always been one of the best assault rifles out there and anybody who have used it can surely relate.

It has a pretty solid damage profile, high fire rate, and pretty manageable recoil control. With proper attachments, the M4A1 is pretty deadly in long range or medium range battles. Here are the best attachments for this weapon:

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optics – G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag

1. Grau 5.56

The Grau 5.56 is the best assault rifle in Warzone, and it’s pretty easy to see why, especially if you’ve been downed by an enemy using this weapon. It’s pretty easy to use and almost has no recoil. With this, you can decimate an enemy from a long distance without sacrificing its effectiveness in mid and close range battles.

For us, the Grau 5.56 is the king of all assault rifles for the Warzone battle royale, and added with the following attachments, this weapon will become very deadly.

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – FSS 26.4″ Archangel
  • Optic – Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex
  • Underbarrel – Cronen Shark II
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag

Bottom Line

The attachments that I specified in this post are based on my personal preference. They may or may not work for you. The best way to know what works best for you is to play around with other attachments and spend more time in Warzone battlefield to test them out.
