5. Combat SMG (Best For Short Range)

One of the fastest shooters.

If you want a fast-firing SMG with decent damage at close range, this is your gun. It's very easy to find and can deal lots of damage in a very short amount of time. Do remember though, that the high damage and fire rate do come at the cost of high recoil. If you don’t have a large mousepad, maybe think twice before using this smg.

What makes Combat SMG great:

  • Very high fire rate.
  • Very high DPS.
  • Easy to find.
  • Large magazine size.

4. Striker Burst Rifle (Best For Mid-Long Range)

If one shot wasn't deadly enough, how about two at the same time?

This burst AR is the strongest AR for long ranges and even has a mythic version. It shoots two bullets at a time and deals strong amounts of damage per hit. Since two bullets are fired at a time, you usually would deal twice the damage as other ARs since both the bullets have a chance of hitting. This gives the AR a higher DPS and makes the kill time shorter.

What makes Striker Burst Rifle great:

  • Shoots two bullets at a time.
  • High damage shots.
  • High fire rate.
  • Easy to find.
