Description of the tiers
We have opted for a standard five-tier system, S to D.
S-Tier: The absolute best SMGs in COD: Mobile Season 4 which can melt the faces off opponents with ease.
A-Tier: With a great loadout these Submachine Guns could go toe-to-toe against the S-Tier.
B-Tier: These SMGs are very capable with a perfect loadout that fits your playstyle.
C-Tier: This SMG tier absolutely requires you to use a perfect loadout. While these SMGs have some downsides, they can still work well.
D-Tier: The trash tier. You would be much better off using one of the other SMGs in this list.
With the broad explainer out of the way, let's dive into the SMG rankings for COD: Mobile Season 4.
CODM SMG tier list: Ranked from best to worst
Below, we've ranked all 14 SMG options for the start of COD: Mobile Season 2 from best to worst, kicking things off with the S-Tier weapons which can melt opponents in mere seconds.
- PP-19 Bizon
The QXR was already one of the best SMGs in Season 3, and with three buffs making it even better at different combat ranges, the SMG now tops our list, followed by the PP-19 Bizon released in the previous season, and the ever-popular Razorback.
The QQ9 dropped one tier to make way for the QXR, while the Fennec remains popular. The MSMC makes its way into the A-Tier SMGs for COD: Mobile Season 4 thanks to some great buffs.
- AGR 556
- HG 40
- PDW 57
The HG 40 slides into the B-Tier thanks to some great buffs. The B-Tier SMGs in our rankings can still work well with the perfect loadout.
If you are adamant about using one of the C-Tier SMGs, find the perfect loadout to compliment your playstyle.
It is advisable to stay clear of the D-Tier SMGs, as they are quite underpowered compared to the S and A-Tier SMGs in our COD: Mobile Season 4 rankings.
