Although it has been only a month since Call of Duty: Warzone's release, many players have begun to master its gameplay and formed unbeatable strategies and tactics. The new Battle Royale mode was released on the 10th of March and the upcoming Season 3 will be its first season transition, and it is expected to introduce several changes. Warzone is an extremely competitive game which can generate some intense 1v1 gunfight situations, where having the slightest advantage, even of a few seconds, can be crucial and tilt the outcome in your favour.

Warzone has an extensive arsenal of weapons to choose from, divided into type categories. Each deal different damage and have different reload times, recoil etc. Some weapons, like snipers, can eliminate the opponent in a single shot, while others, such as LMGs, consume more ammunition. Assault rifles are unquestionably the most well-known weapon class because of their flexibility and force. They can be utilized from various ranges and they are generally simple to use, which makes them ideal for everybody.

Reddit user Sorangkun, analyzed all of the existing Assault Rifles in the game for their statistics and suggested attachments, which will maximize your chances of winning a battle.

He tested every assault rifle against an enemy with three armour plates through body shots. Instead of categorizing rifles with the best overall stats, he stated the weapon which took the least time to eliminate your opponent, assuming that all your shots are on target. The outcome is slightly surprising:

  • FN FAL (480 ms)
  • AK-47 (535 ms / 5.45 ammunition = 522 ms)
  • ODEN (552 ms)
  • RAM-7 (544 ms)
  • M4A1 (576 ms)
  • Kilo 141 (616 ms)
  • Grau 5.56 (640 ms)
  • M13 (650 ms) 
  • CAR (700 ms)
  • FR 5.56 (834 ms)

According to this list, FN FAL has the ability to shred through your enemy’s armour the fastest, slightly increasing your chances of overpowering them. The reason these results are surprising is that the M4A1 is the most popular of these rifles, given its simplicity of usage, but these results prove that they aren’t the best choice by far for a quick takedown of the enemy.
