CoD Best AR in Warzone 2.0

Best AR

We all know that any game of Call of Duty is incomplete without its collection of blood-thirsty Assault-Rifles. This class of weapons truly is the most versatile one, featuring steady and hard damage along with low recoil and controllability. Assault rifles have been dominating most of the game, so it is of paramount importance that you know which among these to choose.

If you're looking for the best AR in Call of Duty Warzone 2, you've come to the right place. Here we will talk about how effective ARs are in the new game and how we have found the best one for you.

Assault Rifles In Warzone 2

If you play Call of Duty, you know that the weapon choices you would make for Modern Warfare 2 are slightly different from the ones you would make in Warzone 2. The two games require different attributes in their weapon choices. 

For example, you would go for the STB 556 or the Kastov-74u as easy picks in Modern Warfare 2, but in Warzone 2, on a map like Al Mazrah, you would need a different, long-range, accurate shooting assault rifle.

This is why we have made a Ranked list for all the assault rifles in the game, showing how they perform specifically in Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah. Have a look at the list below, go through our reasons for ranking them, and let us know your opinions.

Best Assault Rifle In Warzone 2

The best assault rifle in Warzone 2 is the TAQ-56. It outperforms all of its competitors in the whole of Al Mazrah. This information is of paramount importance to AR players like you since you're spending your experience leveling up a gun, so you must know that you’re leveling up the right one. The TAQ-56 has its way of deleting people. The top 3 on this list were all, however, very difficult to differentiate between.

Let us look into this in a bit more detail so that we may see why we have ranked the TAQ-56 as the best AR. In order to do that, we will compare it with its competitor assault rifles, so here is a list of the assault rifles in Warzone 2 ranked from best to worst.

  1. TAQ-56
  2. Kastov 762
  3. Chimera
  4. M4
  5. Kastov-74u
  6. M13B
  7. STB-556
  8. Kastov 545
  9. Lachmann-556
  10. M16

These were not easy to rank among each other; however, each assault rifle had its particular plus points and drawbacks, which led to this conclusion. Let us discuss some of these in detail.

5. Kastov-74u

This assault rifle is actually one competing to be the short-ranged assault rifle in the Meta right now, slightly ahead of the STB-556. The Kastov-74u is impressive since it is basically an SMG that works better on close-range encounters.

If this gun is found as ground loot, it is actually pretty nice; with the 1x holo sight, it works just like an SMG. The only drawback with the 74u is that its damage falls after about 50 meters so you can't do anything about that. The handling and mobility, however, can be built upon with attachments.

4. M4

The M4 is probably one of the better assault rifles in the game. Although it is the default assault rifle, it is very steady and effective in getting kills. You can even add more attachments to make it more deadlier for longer ranges.

The time to kill for the M4 is not the best of its strengths, but it can surely land kills since it is very steady and easy to control. Its role as the default gun shows how easy to use it is; definitely, the right choice for beginners.

3. Chimera

This new addition of the Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded is also an SMG with the high damaging power of an AR. the Chimera has a built-in suppressor and subsonic ammunition, which makes it a very impressive assault rifle for close ranges. It has a very high fire rate, but you need to fix the recoil to land all your shots.

This has an insane level of handling and mobility, but the increased range potential of an assault rifle makes it all the more special, making it the perfect balanced AR to support your sniper.

2. Kastov-762

This bloodthirsty war machine really is an all-rounder as an assault rifle. It has great damage at all ranges, whether close or insanely far. It has the least damage variation at different ranges. This gun has serious damage all the way to the end, unlike any other assault rifle in the game.

The only area it lacks is its recoil. The recoil on the 762 can be managed; however, it is necessary to do something about it since you need to land multiple shots on targets far away.

1. TAQ-56 (The Best AR in Warzone 2)

The TAQ-56, also known in some games as the SCAR, is the best assault rifle in the game. This gun really is a mixture of all other assault rifles in the best way. Although it is not as good in close range, this AR can be rocked in any other range. 

It can chop through enemies at any range with just a few bullets thanks to its high damage potential, great handling, and overall effectiveness. The TAQ-56 is one AR that you just cannot go wrong with, so in terms of leveling up an assault rifle, we think it's best that you level up your TAQ-56.

Stats Comparison For All Warzone 2 Assault Rifles

We have prepared a stats table so that it is easier for you to see why we made the decisions that we made.

Before we start with the stats, a few of the fields require a bit of explanation. Thus, we have given a comprehensive key down below:

  • DMG - Damage. At close range, This is the damage dealt to the Head/Chest/Stomach/Limb (in this order).
  • STK - Shots To Kill. This is the number of shots it takes to kill an enemy at 100/250 HP (in this order).
  • TTK - Time To Kill. This is the time it takes to kill a person with 100 HP, assuming all bullets hit the chest.
  • DPS - Damage Per Second. This is the amount of damage that is dealt per second, assuming all bullets hit the chest.
  • ADS - Aim Down Sights speed. This is how fast the gun, in base form, can aim down sight.
  • Move Speed - This is the ratio of your sprint speed while carrying this gun, to the sprint speed when you are unarmed. (50% means you’re half as fast with the gun equipped)
  • Mag Size - This is the number of rounds a gun can fire before it needs to reload.

Finally, let's just jump into the stats table, give it a look, compare and see for yourself.
