Best Guns in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered

If you don’t have the copy of the game yet, you can buy one on Amazon, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, or Steam.

1. the Desert Eagle (uNLOCKED AT RANK 43)

Best Side Arm or Pistol in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

A fan favorite for it’s brutal damage and iconic sound. The Desert Eagle remains to be the best side arm in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered. It’s great in close range fights but can sometimes be a pain to use from a distance. However it’s extremely reliable for the moments where you need to switch to your side arm.
Remember, switching to your pistol is faster than reloading.

2. The G3 (uNLOCKED AT RANK 25)

The G3, one of the best Assault Rifles in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Single fire weapons usually are a turn off for most players in Call of Duty as the weapon is only as good as your trigger finger. However the G3 is most of the time a two shot kill. So honestly you don’t need to be super fast with your trigger finger to make this weapon useful.

The red dot sight is usually the best choice for this weapon. However it really comes down to preference and comfort. It’s not going to affect weapon performance if you prefer the iron sights more than the red dot.,

3. the Mp44 (UNLOCKED AT RANK 52)

The MP44, one of the best Assault Rifles in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered

This weapon is extremely underrated. It has a pretty cool look to it and is very reminiscent of the STG-44 from Call of Duty: World at War. It’s fully automatic and is great for medium range but can be a little tough to use beyond that range.

The main downside is that there are no attachments for this weapon.

4. the Mp5 (uNLOCKED AT RANK 1)

Best SMG in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered.

The MP5 is probably one of the first guns players will fall in love with when playing online. It’s reliable, fun to use, and looks cool. Most players prefer using the gun with either a silencer or a red dot sight.
The red dot sight can be good for game modes such as Domination and Headquarters. While the silencer is great for Search and Destroy. There also is really no need of using the Stopping Power perk to give this weapon more damage.



5. the p90 (unlocked at rank 40)

The P90, the best Sub Machine gun in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered.

The P90 is by far the most powerful sub machine gun in Modern Warfare Remastered. It shoots extremely fast and has a pretty high clip capacity. It has a lot of recoil and can be tough to control. However once you get used to it and learn how to deal with the recoil, it really packs a punch compared to other weapons in the game.

It’s also does great damage without the Stopping Power perk.

6. the m16 (Unlocked at rank 1)

The Best Gun in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered

As of right now, the M16 is the best primary weapon in Modern Warfare Remastered. It does ridiculous amounts of damage at short, medium, and long range. Most of the time it is a one burst kill, if not it’ll two or three. It really depends where you shoot. Most upper-body shots will only take one burst.

Whether this gun will be nerfed or not is unclear at the moment but right now it is the most popular weapon in online play.  Red dot sight seems to be used more often than the iron sights but once again, it comes down to preference.

7. The M40a3 (Unlocked at rank 3)

The best sniper in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered

The Call of Duty sniping scene began with Call of Duty 4 and this weapon played a huge part in it. It being a sniper of course makes it deadly at long range. However if you know how to quick-scope, you can make it a killing machine at close range.

The ACOG attachment on it was popular in the original game and remains to be among the best guns in Modern Warfare Remastered.

8. THE M60e4 (Unlocked at rank 19)

The Best Light Machine Gun in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered

Another underrated weapon, the M60E4 does tons of damage and has a very high clip capacity. It’s major downside is the time it takes to reload the weapon. However this gun is great for the game mode Domination when it comes to defending points.
While there are more weapons that are great in this game, these are the ones that perform the best in gun fights. These are also the guns most commonly used by players online.

liking the Aug – the M13 – and M91 so far


Ak74 u. For real


The MP44 and the STG are two names for the same gun


Weak ass list.


Bad list! What’s your point?? Just discribe some guns??

Guy who can spell describe

Ur actually f***ing retarded describe is spelled describe not discribe

Guy who corrects grammar

you’re actually f***ing retarded you’re is not pronounced ur so don’t spell ur it’s you’re


But ur is used as ‘Text slang’ and repeating what this other guy said doesn’t help you prove a point but actually makes you appear dumb because you cannot seem to find a better insult.


Bad list lol. Mp44 over ak? No ak74u? M60 over rpd?


It really does come to preference but I can see how he thinks the ak74 u is strong. Personally, I use it because it’s comfortable for me but some people might think it’s strong because of its high power that allows it to do lots of damage. However, like you said, many guns can beat it in terms of accuracy and reliability. In the end, it comes down to what you prefer.
