Warzone Sniper tier list - every Sniper and Marksmen Rifle ranked from best to worst for Season 3

Warzone Season 3 is here and it comes with six new weapons and an abundance of balance changes to shake up the meta. With all that in mind, here's our tier list of the best Sniper Rifles in Warzone Season 3.

With Warzone Season 3 finally being here, sniper rifles might just be the best weapon class in the game to start the season.

Please note: This tier list is updated to take into account the buffs and nerfs introduced in the Season 3 Reloaded update.

There is a brand new Season 3 Verdansk map, and people will need time to learn the new map, and when people don't know a lot about the map, snipers tend to thrive, as your enemies will not know from where you are shooting from.

Keep in mind that recent changes to Cold War weapons will have a big influence on how Sniper Rifles perform, as well as new balance changes released alongside Season 3.

Finally, there is a brand new sniper added to the game, the Swiss K31, and it packs a lot of destructive power, so it rightfully goes right at the top of our tier list.

With all that in mind, here is our Season 3 Sniper Rifle tier list.

Warzone Sniper Rifle tier list 

For the purpose of this tier list, we have combined both categories together to rank the best Sniper/Marksmen Rifles in Warzone.

The rankings include all Snipers and Marksmen Rifles from Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare.

Description of the tiers

We have opted for a standard five-tier system, S to D.

S-Tier: The absolute best Snipers in Warzone

A-Tier: The correct loadout will help this Rifle compete with the best.

B-Tier: In the right hands or in certain scenarios this Sniper Rifle is very capable.

C-Tier: A personality pick, maybe you feel confident with it, or you run a loadout that is perfect but ultimately this gun will leave you wanting compared to others higher up the list.

D-Tier: Garbage tier - don't waste your time.

Remember tier lists are not an exact science. Many factors should be taken into consideration when deciding which weapon is which tier and personal preferences and playstyle can have a big influence.
