With regular updates to the gameplay, the Call of Duty Warzone meta is constantly changing. This has been especially noticeable in the assault rifle class which has had tons of ‘overpowered’ weapons.

Currently, when considering only body-shots, the Black Ops Cold War AK-47 paired with the GRU suppressor and Spetznaz RPK barrel comes out on top in terms of time to kill. Under 37 meters the gun shreds opponents in a jaw-dropping 0.5 seconds. Beyond 37 meters the gun remains competitive with a 0.70 second time to kill.

The C58 with an agency suppressor and task force barrel is a close second. It is the only assault rifle that can compete with the gun at close range. From longer rages, the damage drastically reduces making it the second choice to the AK-47. Other guns like the Krig-6, FARA, and RAM-7 are also viable options however, they are not as ‘meta’ as the aforementioned guns.

When it comes to headshots, the RAM-7 is surprisingly powerful from short range. Although there are better options for long-range fighting, it remains competitive in its class. The AK-47 remains one of the top guns even when considering only headshots. It has a faster time to kill at all ranges than most guns in the class.

If you would like a more balanced gun which deals similar damage at all ranges, the C58 is your best bet. While the others in the class are still viable, we would not choose them over these three.
