This tier list is for Assault Rifles in Modern Warfare's Multiplayer Modes & Warzone

Details of these recommended weapons can be found below.

Assault Rifles Out-Performing Their Roles

S ranks are given to assault rifles that have good performance and/or require very little resource to reach decent status. Some of these require a bit of practice with recoil management but the advantage they give is worth the effort.

All-Range Easy To Use Weapon

Despite numerous changes, M4A1 is still a very easy to use weapon with minimal recoil and no weird muzzle climb patterns. It is a reliable and steadily performing AR that can deal with most battlefield situations.

Practice Recoil Control For Ranged Targets

M4A1's recoil pattern was changed in past updates. Now, it would require some practice if you are aiming to extend the weapon's effectiveness at hitting targets from afar (which you should). Use bots to get practice easily!

Insane Burst Damage With Hardly Any Recoil

AN94 fires the first 3 rounds as a quick burst that has hardly any recoil before reverting back to full auto, shredding their targets if all 3 shots hit. The burst also makes it easier to hit longer ranged targets, letting AN94 perform well beyond most standard range.

Practice Burst Resetting

Best Assault Rifle Criteria

Role Fulfillment

Different assault rifles have separate roles based on the restriction of its stats, that makes them better suited for different roles such as a mid-range rifle or close quarters weapon. Whether the ARs have the stats or attachments to maximize these roles are part of the considerations.

Versatility

A weapon gets higher ranking if it can perform multiple roles. If a weapon can be effective at range even if its primarily a close-quarters weapon, then it gets a higher ranking.

Accessibility

How soon these Assault Rifles can be acquired is also considered in the ranking. If a weapon takes forever to grind out, then it may affect its ranking since players might be better off grinding attachments for other weapons instead.
