Call Of Duty Cold War weapon stats

Call Of Duty: Cold War features a diverse array of different weapons, organised into seven distinct classes: Assault Rifles, SMGs, LMGs, Tactical Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Shotguns, and Pistols. With 25 primary and secondary firearms to learn and master, there's a lot to take in with this weapons arsenal.

Below we've exposed the essential stats of every single weapon in Cold War, from damage to handling speeds and much more.

Now let's take a look at the essential stats of each Cold War weapon, so you can easily compare different guns in the same class.

Assault Rifle stats

Assault Rifles are the dominant force in any mid-range engagement. Good handling stats and reliable damage makes them a staple in most class setups for Cold War, but don't expect them to reliably challenge an SMG in close quarters, or a sniper over long distances.

SMG stats

SMGs were dominant in the Cold War Betas, and it doesn't look like that will change anytime soon. These fast-firing close-quarters shredders are perfect opposite a longer-range weapon such as an Assault Rifle or Sniper.

Hipfire Accuracy76.5777.5

LMG stats

LMGs aim slow but deal devastating damage to enemies at medium-to-long ranges. They're not great for running-and-gunning, but for fortifying positions and suppressing enemies, there's not much better.

Tactical Rifle stats

Tactical Rifles occupy the space between Assault Rifles and Snipers in Cold War. More sluggish than Assault Rifles but packing far more of a punch, these semi-automatic rifles can annihilate enemies at longer ranges.

Sniper Rifle stats

Sniper Rifles are the absolute kings of Call Of Duty: Cold War at the moment. Not only are they capable of killing an enemy in a single shot to the head (or sometimes even the chest), they're surprisingly viable at short range too as long as you're a seasoned quick-scoper.

Hipfire Accuracy181818

Shotgun stats

Shotguns are classed as secondary weapons alongside Pistols in Cold War, and therefore lack the bite of the Shotguns in Modern Warfare. But there's still nothing better for quick bucketloads of damage at extremely close quarters.

Pistol stats

Pistols are reliable sidearms for Cold War players who lack the Law Breaker Wildcard perk. Ranging from fast-firing machine pistols to punchy hand cannons, their speed and handling make up for any deficits when it comes to dealing reliable damage.
