Chapter 2 Best Guns & Weapons Evaluation

Best Weapon Ranking Evaluation

Ease of Use & Overall Versatility

This weapon ranking takes into account every weapon's overall versatility and ease of use. Weapons that can only work in specific situations are unlikely to be recommended here.

Evaluation Based on Solo Matches

This ranking is purely based on how well a weapon does in Solo Matches. This is due to team battles having different variables, including support and how quickly it can take down enemies so the evaluation for that is different.
