The best Assault Rifles to use as sniper support

When selecting your secondary weapon, you basically have two choices: either choose the mobility of an SMG but lack the damage range, or go for an Assault Rifle and make sure you are not struggling for mid-range fights.

1. Cold War Ak47

The cold war Ak47 is probably one of the most versatile weapon to use in Warzone. You can use it as a primary weapon like Joe Wo in pro-tournaments or as an SMG. However the best playstyle to use the Cold War AK47 today in Warzone is by far to use it as a sniper support!

Excellent damage profile, and manageable recoil!

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2′ Takedown
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

2. XM4

The XM4 is also very interesting to use in Warzone. As recently discovered by True Game Data, there is no difference if youshoot the neck or the head of your ennemies! Which means the XM4 is extremely powerfull and forgiving.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.7′ Takedown
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd
  • Stock: Raider Pad

3. QBZ

Like all the Assault Rifles presented in this article, the QBZ can be used in any playstyles: main AR or sniper support! Try this amazing gun next to your Swiss K31 and you won’t be disapointed of the results!

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 15.5′ Task Force
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Ammunition: Stanag 60 Round Drum
  • Stock: Raider Stock

4. EM2

The last gun added into the game for season 5 is amazing. Probably meta for long range, it’s also very good for close range rights! We are seeing a lot of builds being tested by professional players, but one consensus seems to be going for the following build: enjoy!

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 40 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Optic: Microflex LED

The best SMG to use as sniper support

The SMG will always be a good option if you want to have a great mobility next to your main primary sniper. Some SMG even have insane damage profile for mid range and you should definitely consider using one of the following.

1. TEC-9

On paper and based on pure statistics, the TEC-9 is the best sniper support SMG in the game. Indeed, the damage drop off is almost similar to the CW AK47, which is amazing considering it’s not the same category.

The TEC-9 has few downside though: recoil harder to control than other SMG, no real suppressor (you still have position concealment!) and the attachment to make it fully auto is unlock at the end of the weapon’s progression.

  • Muzzle: Full Auto Repeater
  • Barrel: 4.9′ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: Salvo 48 Rnd Fast Mag

2. Bullfrog

Probably the go-to SMG sniper support of most of players, the Bullfrog is amazing at all ranges. With almost no recoil, a good damage drop off and a big mag, it’s definitily one of the best secondary weapon to carry next to a sniper.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 7.4” Task Force Barrel
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: 65 Rnd Mag

3. PPSH-41

The PPSH-41 is a sleeper in Warzone right now. Very similar to the Bullfrog in term of gameplay, the PPSH-41 is actually very good and polyvalent no matter the range.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: 71 Rnd Mag

You can also use the Tiger Team Spotlight instead of the Optic or Ammunition, depending on your preferences.

4. AK-74u

No one actually uses the AK 74u in Warzone, despite the amaying statistics it’s having for mid range and sniper support capabilities. Try it, you might really enjoy it! Highlighted by TrueGameData in his sniper support video.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 50 Rnd Drum
