Call of Duty WW2 Guide:  Most Powerful Guns for Multiplayer GameGuides  Call of Duty: WW2 Call of Duty WW2 Guides

Call of Duty WW2 Features a slew of era specific weapons for competitive multiplayer.  Most of the weapons in the game can be unlocked through normal progression, while others need to be unlocked through Division Prestige.  Guns are more than just their damage rating.  Other factors like range and fire rate will play into how quickly they can take down an enemy and from what distance.  Combined with different perks and attachments, a gun that’s less powerful in terms of damage rating may work better for you and your play style.

Regardless, if you’re looking for the most powerful weapons in the game when it comes to how strong they are, we’ve compiled a list of the weapons in Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer with the highest damage output across all the classes.   Below you’ll find the most powerful guns in the Rifle, SMG, LMG, Sniper and Shotgun classes.

Most Powerful Rifles in Call of Duty WW2

The most powerful rifles in Call of Duty WW2 happen to be two semi-automatic weapons.  What this means is that these weapons will not spray fire when you pull the trigger.  Instead, you’ll need to pull the trigger manually for each shot.  Both can be outfitted with Rifling attachments to negate damage drop-off at longer distances.  These single shot weapons will let you fire off a full clip with holding 8 and 10 rounds respectively.  If you’re more of a spray and pray type player, these might not be the best two choices for you.

Most Powerful Submachine Guns in Call of Duty WW2

Almost all of the submachine guns in Call of Duty WW2 have decent damage, but they vary most when it comes to fire rate and/or accuracy.  If either one of these is important to you, pick the weapon that best suits your playstyle.  If you’re going to be in close quarters, accuracy probably isn’t as important as fire rate.  While if you’re usually finding that you’re engaged with players at a distance, a more accurate SMG will likely be a good fit for you.

Most Powerful Light Machine Gun in Call of Duty WW2

There’s only one LMG with a damage rating of  8 in Call of Duty WW2 and it’s the BREN.  Unfortunately the damage comes with a slow fire rate.  If you want the highest damage possible out of the LMG class, you’ll need to put up with a one of the slowest firing guns outside of the Sniper Rifles.

  • Full-auto LMG that delivers high damage at a slow fire rate.
  • Damage – 8
  • Range – 8
  • Accuracy – 6
  • Fire Rate – 3

Most Powerful Sniper Rifles in Call of Duty WW2

We listed the top two Sniper Rifles here because after playing with them both they both seemed worth mentioning.  The M1903 is the most powerful weapon in the game.  It has the biggest zone you can hit a player in and take them down with one shot.  It is a bolt action so you’ll need to reload on each shot.  For those that take the plunge in Division Prestige for the Mountain Division, you’ll get access to the KAR98K.  This sniper rifle also has a large one shot kill zone, it’s just not quite as powerful as the M1903.  That small damage drop-off does come with increased accuracy.

M1903

  • Description:  Heavy bolt-action Sniper Rifle that has largest one shot kill zone.
  • Damage – 10
  • Range – 10
  • Accuracy – 4
