There are also two weapons, namely the PKM LMG and D13 Sector, and the usual weapon balance changes. Interestingly, the latest COD Mobile Season 11 patch update only buffed four weapons, including the Kilo Bolt-Action, H20405, R9-0 and CBR4, introduced last season.
There were no changes to the assault rifle class; however, last season saw a major shakeup to the meta, which prompted a drastic reorganization of our assault rifle tier list. So, without further ado, here are the best assault rifles to use in COD Mobile Season 11, based on the weapons' performance in the meta.
COD Mobile Season 11 Assault Rifle tier list
If you didn't know, assault rifles are all-purpose guns and are the most-used class in the game. Additionally, weapons can be tailored to various use cases depending on the attachments and loadout.
Note: Our tier lists are not an exact science; however, we do strive to make our AR list as accurate as humanly possible.
Description of the tiers
- S-Tier: Even without the perfect loadout, the S-Tier assault rifles in COD Mobile Season 11 are considered the best of the best. You can't go wrong.
- A-Tier: With the right attachments and a great loadout that suits your playstyle, the A-Tier assault rifles can compete with the S-Tier.
- B-Tier: These ARs can still pack a punch with the perfect loadout and should be considered average.
- C-Tier: Weapons in this tier are only effective in specific situations or for particular playstyles. You will require the perfect loadout to get the job done.
- D-Tier: The trash tier. You would be better off simply going for one of the other assault rifles on this list.
AR tier list
There's a total of 20 assault rifles in COD Mobile Season 11. Interestingly, the latest gameplay patch only included weapon balances changes to four guns, none of which were from the assault rifle class. Followingly, we have ranked all the assault rifles from best to worst, primarily based on their performance in the meta.
The Type 25 was a strong meta weapon in COD Mobile Season 10 after receiving a long list of buffs, including recoil reduction, increased fire rate and increased damage to the abdomen, which made it particularly scary in close quarters combat.
Given that there are no balance changes to any assault rifles this season, the Type 25 will continue to be a formidable force to include in your arsenal. The M13 is an equally fierce mid-range assault rifle, boasting a fast fire rate, high headshot, and body shot damage with low recoil.
Make no mistake by doubting the capability and lethality of these weapons. While they are on the A-tier, the Swordfish, KN44, AK-117, and Man-O-War are well-deserving of a spot in the S-tier. These weapons boast incredible firepower and are more than capable of melting enemies during combat.
Despite these guns being fantastic options to include your arsenal, they have fallen out of favour following the Type 25, M13 and AS VAL's immense growing popularity. Indeed, these weapons, like the Peacekeeper MK2, pack serious damage, fast fire rate and solid accuracy, which can be made even stronger with the right attachments.
These weapons are perhaps not worth "C-tier" status but, similarly to the weapons in the B-tier, have mostly fallen out of favour for more robust and broken options, like the Type 25 or M13, this season. This season, these weapons may require the perfect loadout to contend with S-tier or A-tier weapons.
We recommend avoiding these weapons in COD Mobile Season 11. Despite not being total trash, there are far better weapons to use this season.
That completes our list of the best Assault Rifles in COD Mobile Season 11, ranked from best to worst. If you disagree with our ranking, then unlucky for you -- we don't care.
