The title of being the best Assault Rifle in Warzone is very prestigious, as it typically means the gun is one of the most popular weapons in the game.

That's not always the case, though, as powerful options can go under the radar for a while, especially after a major patch.

Although the SVA 545, RAM-7, and MTZ 556 have higher pick rates, WhosImmortal believes there's a slept-on AR that outmatches them all. Equipped with a deadly TTK and solid accuracy in Season 3, this has to be on your loadout list for Urzikstan and Rebirth Island.

BP50 is the "best Assault Rifle" in Warzone Season 3


  • Barrel: Lore-9 Heavy Barrel
  • Muzzle: Casus Brake
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Stock: MOAT-40 Stock

In the eyes of WhosImmortal, nothing is more important than "consistency" in a weapon, and that's exactly why they've crowned the BP50 as the "number one" AR.

With 732ms TTK up to 25m and a best-in-class 935ms TTK at over 60m, the BP50 is an absolute force in Season 3, but not everyone has clocked on just yet.

The build above not only focuses on maximising the weapon's damage but also enhancing control and strafe speed. This allows the gun to thrive on Rebirth as an aggressive AR that can put pressure on foes rather than just one that's built to sit in power positions.

Breaking down the popularity stats of the BP50, you can see that it's actually being ignored by a lot of the community. According to WZStats, it holds a solid 0.8% pick rate, which is respectable but nowhere near what it deserves.

This weapon is top-tier in Season 3, and it feels like it'll only be a matter of time before it gets recognised for its power. So, instead of waiting to jump on the bandwagon, add this weapon to your go-to list early, it'll pay dividends.
