Best AC-42 Assault Rifle Gear for Battlefield 2042


Battlefield 2042 All-Out War features 22 weapons across a range of categories, but not all of them can be considered one of the best weapons in Battlefield 2042, so we’ve ranked each weapon from best to worst and counted the top 10.

Battlefield 2042 is finally here and DICE is working hard to fix the bugs and glitches that have plagued the game since its launch. The bloom mechanic has prevented a lot of the weapons from being effective at range, but now that it’s fixed, there can be a lot more variety in their choices.

Any specialist can use weapons from the SMG, Assault Rifle, LMG, Marksman, Sniper, Utility and Secondary categories. But some weapons have proven to be more effective than others, so we’re looking at the best of the best.

We ranked each weapon in Battlefield 2042’s All-Out Warfare and counted the top five.

Best guns in Battlefield 2042 All-Out Warfare

10. DM7

Battlefield 2042 DM7 Sniper Rifle

The DM7 is the first Marksman rifle you’ll unlock Battlefield 2042, but it’s still an extremely solid choice. With a solid rate of fire and very little recoil, you’ll be able to land multiple shots at your enemies in quick succession.

Previously, it struggled from a distance thanks to the “oppressive” bloom mechanic, but after the November 25 update it’s a solid choice, regardless of scope. You’ll be able to beat your opponents at close range, then use the Plus system to equip it to capture targets at long range.

9. NTW-50

NTW-50 sniper rifle on the battlefield 2042

The NTW-50 is Battlefield 2042’s heaviest sniper rifle, but that means it’s very powerful.

If you are an infantry player you know how difficult it is to take on vehicles, but the NTW-50 solves that problem. You will be able to do a quick job of any vehicle that crosses your path, whether it is a hovercraft, tank or helicopter. In addition, it is also deadly for infantry players.

However, you should use the NTW-50 as much as you can, as DICE has confirmed that damage to their vehicle will be nerfed in a future update.

8. PBX-45

PBX-45 SMG in Battlefield 2042

While the maps in Battlefield 2042 are massive, there are still plenty of close combat opportunities. This is where the PBX-45 really shines, being a great weapon for pushing back targets and getting in front of enemies.

It will start to fight at a longer distance, but stay within the boundaries of the buildings and you can take down any enemy that gets in your way.

7. M44

M44 revolver on the battlefield 2042

Perhaps a surprising choice, the M44 revolver is arguably the best secondary in the game.

Not only can he shoot in the head with a single hit, but he also deals serious damage to his body. You can even equip it with a 4x scope thanks to the Plus system, which makes it effective at short and medium range. If you are looking for a powerful hand cannon by your side, we recommend the M44.

6. MP9

Mp9 SMG in Battlefield 2042

Another SMG, the MP9 is also a great choice for taking on the enemy. What makes it so effective is a fast rate of fire which gives it an incredibly low TTK.

Now that bullet spread has been fixed, the MP9 is even a solid choice in mid-range combat, but you’ll have to be wary of burning your ammo. Any SMG is a solid choice in Battlefield 2042, so the MP9 is well worth your time.

5. K30

K30 SMG in Battlefield 2042

The K30, often referred to as the KRISS Vector, is one of the best close-range options in the game. With an extremely low TTK, enemies unlucky enough to run into it don’t stand a chance.

Even if an objective is swarming with enemies, you can use the Plus system to set up a suppressor and run and shoot without them knowing where you’re going to hit next. He has a considerable kick, but stick to his ideal range and you’ll be nearly unstoppable.

4. SWS-10

Sniper SWS-10 in Battlefield 2042

Battlefield has always been known for its incredibly satisfying sniping, and the SWS-10 does just that. Being the first sniper rifle you unlock, it has become the benchmark for many players not only because it’s powerful, but also because it’s fun to use.

Whether it’s shooting long distance shots or pushing on lenses, the Plus system lets you tailor the SWS to your preferences. This allows for multiple styles of sniper play in a lifetime, which is especially useful for massive 2042 maps.

If you are looking for the classic Battlefield sniper with an excellent all-rounder, the SWS-10 will be the sniper rifle for you.

3. M5A3

M5A3 Battlefield Assault Rifle 2042 Beta

Assault rifles are powerful tools in every FPS game, and the Battlefield 2042 M5A3 is no different. With a solid TTK and incredibly simple recoil, this is the perfect all-rounder.

Equipped with a Red Dot sight, you can easily use it for close range engagements. Then you can use the Plus system to attach the 4x scope and remote laser enemies.

While the other weapons on this list are powerful, the M5A3 will be a great choice for beginners and longtime Battlefield fans alike.

2. SVK

Battlefield 2042 SVK Sniper Rifle

The SVK Marksman Rifle is a deadly choice in Battlefield 2042, as it is capable of taking down a player with just two hits to the body and one to the head.

We rated the SVK above the SWS-10 because it is extremely easy to use. It has an incredibly fast bullet speed, so you won’t have much trouble landing those long shots, and its semi-automatic rate of fire makes it much more forgiving.

Whatever your playstyle, the Plus system allows the SVK to be a dominant weapon in any situation.

1. LCMG

LCMG LMG in the battlefield 2042

In the large-scale chaos of Battlefield 2042, having a huge magazine at your disposal is a powerful tool. The LCMG has proven to be the best weapon for the massive battles of Battlefield 2042, with its low recoil and huge ammo belt allowing players to tear apart multiple enemies without ever having to worry about reloading.

It’s slightly slower than some of the other weapons on this list, but once you’ve mastered it you’ll have no problem mowing down enemy after enemy.


Take any weapon from this list in Battlefield 2042 and you will be one of the most powerful forces on the battlefield.
