Identifying the best Warzone AR loadouts is never easy, especially with the meta-shifting with every major patch. Despite this, it’s key you find a top-tier weapon, as they’re unbelievably effective at eliminating foes in mid to long-range gunfights.

Of course, there are several viable assault rifle options in the Season 3 patch, each with its own strengths and weaknesses that excel in different situations. So, in order to pick the best AR in Warzone's current meta to devastate your enemies, I've created a ranked list.

Best Warzone Assault Rifles, ranked

5. TR-76 Geist

Best TR-76 Geist loadout

  • Muzzle: Casus Brake L
  • Barrel: Bruen Bridle Heavy
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

As the only MW2 option on the list, the OG TR-76 Geist is a blast from the past that brings more than just nostalgia. The bullpup AR is hard-hitting and makes short work of any foes in your path as long as you can control the recoil.

Capable of dispatching foes at mid and long-range, it's a versatile weapon that I love running on both Resurgence and standard BR. While it can't quite compete with the top dogs in MW3, it's nice to take a trip down memory lane and use an MW2 weapon from time to time.

4. RAM-7

Best RAM-7 loadout

  • Muzzle: Casus Brake
  • Barrel: Cronen Headwind Long
  • Stock: HVS 3.4 Pad
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

The RAM-7 hits like a truck and as a sniper support, it's built to charge head-on into skirmishes and defeat any enemies in its path.

With all the attachments above, you'll have the tools to play aggressively and rack up kills, especially in Resurgence where this weapon is unmatched.

While nerfs have brought it down from its previous heights back in Season 2, it's still an absolute force in Season 3.

3. BP50

Best BP50 loadout

  • Muzzle: ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: TRST-IV Grip Tape
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

Having taken over MW3 multiplayer since its recent release in Season 2, the BP50 is also making a splash in the Battle Royale meta. This devastatingly strong AR has a consistently strong TTK across all ranges, making it immensely versatile.

Specialising in mid to long-range combat, in my opinion, it performs best when in the hands of an aggressive player who isn't afraid to take risks. I've taken on countless SMGs at close quarters with this gun, so it's certainly no slouch in those high-pressure skirmishes as well.

2. Holger 556

Best Holger 556 loadout

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: Chrios-6 Match
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag

The Holger 556 is the ultimate choice for someone who is looking for a classic full-auto AR that decimates foes at long range. Plenty of firepower, stability, and solid mobility make this gun an absolute force on Urzikstan that's more than capable of delivering you multiple victories.

Built to provide bullet velocity, damage range, and control, the attachments above come together to create a premium setup that can farm opponents. While it will require some practice to master, I still think it's a top-tier choice in the hands of a sharpshooter.

1. SVA 545

Best SVA 545 loadout

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: STV Precision Barrel
  • Optic: CORIO Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Ammunition: 5.45 High Grain
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

When I'm looking for a long-range AR, I need it to be easy to use, versatile in combat, and deal plenty of damage from afar. Well, the SVA 545 ticks all those boxes and more in Season 3, that's why it's the premium assault rifle for securing kills from afar.

All the attachments above make this gun incredibly simple to operate and that's what you need when you're looking to carry a match. This gun has slowly crept up into the top spot due to multiple buffs, and in Season 3, it's finally getting its time in the spotlight.
