The Warzone best assault rifles are your typical pick for all-rounder weapons that will work well with most encounters in this expansive battle royale. Warzone recently introduced its new map Caldera, and that has placed a new emphasis on assault rifles, as it features tight valleys, high up peaks, and claustrophobic buildings. However, with weapons coming in from Modern Warfare, Cold War and Vanguard, you can be a little spoiled for choice, so we're breaking down the Warzone best assault rifles that you should be picking up in Caldera.

Warzone Best Assault Rifle: Perks

Before we get into our list of the Warzone best assault rifles, there's not much point spitting laser beams at range if you cannot mix up your game through your perks; you'll need to know which secondary guns are best to be paired with, and how to use your perks to finish your kills off and make sure you can stay alive.

  • Secondary - SMG or Sniper 
  • Perk 1 - Double Time
  • Perk 2 - Ghost / High Alert
  • Perk 3 - Amped
  • Lethal - Semtex
  • Equipment - Stun Grenade

Warzone Best Assault Rifles: BAR 

Making it into our Warzone best assault rifles, the BAR is one of the newer additions to the roster of weapons in Warzone Pacific. The BAR has a slow rate of fire and is on the bulkier side, but more than makes up for it in stopping power. This thing shreds through enemies, especially at mid to long range. And with a steady recoil, the enemy will barely know what hit them before it's too late. Here are the attachments we'd recommend for the BAR, which might slow things down a little more, but it will ensure that your shots hit hard: 

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer
  • Barrel - CGC 27" 2B
  • Optics - G16 2.5x
  • Stock - Cooper SP
  • Underbarrel - M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine - .50 BMG 40 Round Mags 
  • Ammo Type - Lengthened
  • Rear Grip - Leather Grip
  • Perk 1 - Hardscope
  • Perk 2 -  Fully Loaded

Warzone Best Assault Rifles: Cooper Carbine

The Cooper Carbine is one of the Warzone Best ARs.

The Cooper Carbine is our next Vanguard weapon making it into the Warzone best assault rifles. This is quite the opposite from the BAR, with far less damage output, but a lot more flexibility in movement. This near pseudo-SMG was added as part of Vanguard Season One, and naturally has become a popular pick in Warzone, however partnered up with something a bit more longer ranged, and you've got an excellent middle ground of damage, speed, range, and accuracy. Here are the attachments for this Warzone best assault rifle: 

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer
  • Barrel - 22" Cooper Custom
  • Optics - G16 2.5x
  • Stock - Cooper 45RS
  • Underbarrel - M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine - .30 Carbine 45 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type - Lengthened
  • Rear Grip - Fabric Grip 
  • Perk 1 - Tight Grip
  • Perk 2 - Defender

Warzone Best Assault Rifles: C58

The C58 is one of the Warzone Best ARs.

One of the last weapons to be added to Cold War, and one that wasn't immediately taken in by players, the C58 is now one of the Warzone best assault rifles. Despite taking some getting used to, and many hours needed to unlock the better attachments, the C58 is the most hard-hitting assault rifle in Warzone. Once its recoil is harnessed, it could very well be your chosen monster, leaving players only a slither of a chance of beating you in a long-distance gunfight:

  • Muzzle - Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel - 18.5’’ Task Force
  • Laser - N.A
  • Optic - Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel - Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition - 45 Rnd Drum
  • Rear Grip - N.A

Warzone Best Assault Rifles: NZ41

The NZ41 is one of the Warzone Best ARs.

Yet another Vanguard weapon making it into the Warzone best assault rifles list, and for good reason. Much like the BAR, the NZ41 is a heavy hitter which is needed far more often than not thanks to the wide open plains of Caldera. You'll certainly need a lighter weapon like the MP5 or MP40 to counter the heft, but you'll be left with a gun that has excellent stability, making for a great mid to long range choice. Here are the attachments that solidify this as one of the Warzone best assault rifles: 

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer 
  • Barrel - Orbweaver 360mm BC 
  • Optic - G16 2.5x 
  • Stock - Orbweaver Elite
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strafe Angled
  • Magazine - 6.5mm Sakura 45 Round Mags
  • Ammunition - Lengthened
  • Rear Grip - Pine Tar Grip
  • Perk 1 - Brace 
  • Perk 2 - Surplus

Warzone Best Assault Rifles: STG44 

The STG44 is one of the Warzone Best ARs

The Vanguard weaponry is asserting its dominance over the meta with the STG44,. This may be a starter weapon in the main multiplayer of Vanguard, but it is becoming a steady favourite for starters and pros alike for its adaptiveness and all-rounded performance. In all essence it is the replacement for guns like the Krig 6, and we expect it to stay favourite for some time. Here are the attachments that make this one of the Warzone best assault rifles: 

  • Muzzle - Scythe Compensator
  • Barrel - N/A
  • Optic - MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock - Konstanz Tactical
  • Underbarrel - M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine - N/A 
  • Ammo Type - Lengthened
  • Rear Grip - Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1 - Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 2 -  On-Hand
