A battle royale is only as good as its roster of weapons. The recent release of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 has thrown fans into a frenzy. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II's sequel is a big step up from what came before. The game now features AI soldiers and new borders to explore. Moreover, you can also battle it out with AI and user-controlled opponents for loot in the extraction game mode. 

As with every battle royale game, you will start with a limited inventory and expand as you progress. Activision's latest installment has ten weapon classes, which you can unlock by increasing your military rank or upgrading the weapon's base. However, with a decent set of ammunition to choose from, it's only suitable to equip yourself with the upper crust's best. Here are the five best weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. 

5. FSS Hurricane

World of Warcraft: Dragonflight Review

The FSS Hurricane returns to Call of Duty: Warzone 2 after being featured in the game's prequel. The FSS is a submachine gun (SMG) manufactured by Tempus Armament, a weapons manufacturer based in the game. You can quickly tell the weapons they manufacture from their muffed fist logo holding a spiked mace.

The FSS Hurricane's best features are its sharp point accuracy and large magazine size. The low fire rate and kill time can seem like a downer. However, the SMG makes up for it with various attachments. Although season 1 introduces the BAS-P as an SMG, it doesn't come close to the FSS Hurricane.

You can access the weapon during the Ghost Team mission. After taking control of Gaz, you'll be tasked with navigating to hangar 3. Of course, you'll meet resistance, but you can find the weapon inside the trailer a few yards from the soldiers firing at you. Walk into the trailer, and you'll find the weapon lying on the desk, waiting in the wings. 

4. Signal 50

The Signal 50 is your best bet for long-range firing. The sniper fires the fastest rounds and has an impressive recoil thanks to the reciprocating barrel. You don't have to worry about losing your target after firing a shot. 

On the downside, this rifle has poor handling speeds and low damage. These disappointing features may make you rethink equipping your avatar with the weapon. However, it makes up for it with a high refire rate. You can set up your station miles away and still strike down your enemy while drawing little attention to your base. Compared to rifles that deal more damage, the Signal 50 stands out for its impeccable long-range.

Moreover, the weapon has the best attachments and loadouts. The best part is that you don't have to upgrade many other weapons since most unlocks are unique to the Signal 50. You can only access this sniper by reaching player level 4 and earning enough XP. You can accomplish this by completing all the challenges and modes.

3. Victus XMR

Another sniper for the list, the Victus XMR, is significantly better than the Signal 50 for the impressive damage it deals. You stand a better chance of downing your enemies with the weapon's fascinating 275-damage headshot. One shot can take down even the most heavily armored foe.

What's more, this weapon handles better despite seeming like quite the heavy killing machine. Surprisingly, it handles better than the Signal 50. The weapon is available in the Season 1 Battle Pass and is unlocked after the successful completion of the level. 

As expected, the sniper has a downside: a low fire rate. However, the bolt-action sniper makes up for it with its long range and bullet velocity. Once you fire from a distance, you won't have to fire twice. The loadout and attachments can also transform the sniper into a top-tier annihilator. 

2. M4

The M4 is a lethal weapon owing to its high damage deals and low recoil. The weapon does an impressive job at both medium and close range. As a starter weapon, it gives newbies the thrill and features they need for a hit. However, you'll find other, more powerful weapons after making progress in the game. 

Moreover, the weapon is flexible and can fit into any class option. As part of the weapons, you'll get to unlock first in the game, the M4 draws you closer to gold camo. Also, its versatility allows for a wide range of loadouts and attachments, making it a compelling choice for warfare in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. 

Aside from its high fire rate and robust stopping power, the M4 has spot-on accuracy ranking it top among the mean killing machines. You can unlock this assault rifle by progressing to level 4 and accessing the custom loadouts. Level four allows you to access additional attachments and weapons, such as the M16.

1. STB 556

Making it to the top of our list is the STB 556. You can't simply go wrong with this assault rifle. It is the equivalent of the FSS Hurricane in the AR category for its impressive range and effectiveness. The weapon doesn't have recoil, meaning you can fire at will and not lose sight of your target.

Undeniably, no other assault rifles can match up to the tremendous power the STB 556 holds. It may come close to the Kastov 545, but the Kastov beats it at having a better stopping power. Notwithstanding, the STB 556 has a strong fire rate that compares to the M4.

It may take a while to access this weapon, but it is worthwhile in the end. You will need to level up to rank 41. You will need to spend a few hours on the game and defeat a pool of opponents to reach this rank.
