SMGs are dominating the Warzone 2.0 meta but a handful of weapons are able to keep up with their popularity.
The Signal 50 is the only sniper rifle that is seeing consistent play and other snipers have fallen out of the meta to some extent.
Launchers are completely obsolete and they are seeing almost no play.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 saw the meta shift slightly thanks to buffs and nerfs in the recent seasonal balance patch. If you are wondering which are the best weapons in the current meta we have you covered with our tier list. Do note that personal playstyle preferences and ease of use can directly affect your experience with any weapon in the game. Our recommendations are based on weapon usage stats/popularity only. Here is a complete weapon tier list for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2. 

How the Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 tier list works

Here is how we evaluate the weapons for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.

  • S-Tier: These are the most potent weapons in the current meta and are currently seeing the most use in casual and pro play.

  • A-Tier: With the right loadouts, you will be able to use these weapons and go toe-to-toe against S-tier weapons without breaking a sweat.

  • B-Tier: These weapons are situational and in the right hands, they can be lethal.

  • C-Tier: Usually the weakest weapons in their respective classes and there are strictly better options available. While they are weak, you can get serviceable use out of them.

  • D-Tier: Weapons that are completely unfavored by the meta and there is no reason to ever pick them up.
