Battlefield 2042 Weapon Tier List

Battlefield 2042 is easily one of the most anticipated games of this year and while the game did have a troubling launch, it is safe to say that it is slowly picking up the pace and people are not slowing down at all when it comes to playing the game.

As with all the shooters, the game has a diverse class of weapons that you can choose from and this being a multiplayer focused shooter, a tier-list is in order. This definitive Battlefield 2042 weapon tier list is here to help you choose the best weapon for your requirements and will help you have a wonderful experience.

However, a point worth noting here is that considering how the weapons will be balanced with each patch, I would highly advise that you keep coming back to this list for new changes. So, let’s not waste time and have a look, shall we?


S Tier

Every game has S-tier weapons and in case you are talking about a game in which you are going to use characters, then we have characters that you are going to use. With that said, the weapons in this tier are going to be the meta and will deliver the absolute best experience to anyone who is looking to get started with the game.

You are looking at high damage, great controlling, and overall a mean machine and that is not something to mess against.

Weapon Name Type
PP-29Submachine Gun
SVKMarksman Rifle
MP9Submachine Gun


A Tier

Another great tier that is often overlooked is this one. Why do people overlook it? Well, there are a number of reasons behind this, to be honest. For starters, people assume that there is a massive gap between S and A tiers. Whereas, that is not true, at all. The line between these tiers is a lot thinner than one might think.

A-tier weapons are going to deliver just as better performance with slight quirks here and there but other than that, you are getting excellent weapons in your hands.

Weapon Name Type
AK-24Assault Rifle
LCMGLight Machine Gun
SWS-10Sniper Rifle
K-30Submachine Gun


B Tier

Battlefield 2042 is rife with some of the amazing weapons, however, the game does have a few that stick out like a sore thumb. Thankfully, this does not mean that the weapons are completely useless because even in tough situations, these weapons can be really, really good overall and can actually work really well.

You do need more practice with these weapons but the more you train with them, the better you will get with them. A lot of people I know feel comfortable with B-tier weapons because that’s how they started out.

Weapon Name Type
DXR-1Sniper Rifle
M5A3Assault Rifle
12M AUTOShotgun
PKP-BPLight Machine Gun


C Tier

This is where things start to get a bit trickier as compared to previous tiers. The C tier weapons are still okay, but they are best used if you are just starting out or you are playing with other players who are not as experienced because these weapons will not give you the type of performance you want.

Weapon Type
NTW-50Sniper Rifle
DM7Marksman Rifle
PBX-45Submachine Gun
AC-42Assault Rifle


D Tier

The D-tier weapons are the ones that you have to avoid at all costs because not doing so is only going to result in you not being able to play the game the way it is supposed to be played, and well, we don’t want that now, do we?

Weapon Name Type
VCARMarksman Rifle


Battlefield 2042 has come a long way despite being a game that was only released recently. A lot has changed and the developers are working hard at making sure that the game is getting and better with time. With that said, in this Battlefield 2042 tier list, you are given a good idea about which weapons you should be using and which ones you should be ignoring. So, be certain that you know where to begin.
