Battlefield 2042 Best Weapons to Use In-Game

Having a hard time choosing which starting guns to use or other ones to unlock in Battlefield 2042?

Battlefield 2042 has a multitude of weapons to choose from and equipping the best ones can mean your victory if you play your cards right. Just like any other shooter game though, choosing the right type of weapon can be determined by the Specialist’s role and your playstyle. If you are unfamiliar with the guns in this game though, it will be difficult to choose the best ones.

In order to save you from all the trouble, here is a list of the Battlefield 2042 best weapons. These include the early game versions and the latest ones in the launch version.

Battlefield 2042 – Best Starting Weapons

Depending on your preference, there are a few starting weapons in the game, but these are the ones that just stands out from the rest. These have been the choice for most players now as well so check these out:

  • DM7 – The DM7 is a great mid-range automatic rifle for the starting group. It offers quite the damage, a lot of shots fired, and a good-enough distance from enemies. Chuck it up with some attachments and you can actually overpower this startup rifle in no time.
  • PBX 45 SMG – For newbies who love close quarters combat. Has high fire rate, does decent damage, and has short range but quick bursts. Best for those who love to dash and ambush enemies on sight.

Battlefield 2042 – Best Weapons at Higher Levels

Here are the best weapons to use if you have grinded for experience in Battlefield 2042. You can get them when you get around level 14 to 18 and are able to carry you for the rest of the game if you just know how to use them properly. Here are some of the best ones yet:

  • SVK – A marksman rifle that is heavily influenced by its western counterparts, according to its in-game description. It is close to a sniper rifle, but it can hold up on its own as it is quite accurate and lethal. It might have a small magazine size, but that is compensated by its super deadly damage that can at least give high damage on enemies, just make your shots count.
  • PP-29 – An SMG that has a large magazine size, small recoil, and quick bursts with high firepower despite its type. It can be shot at a decent distance and can easily overpower enemies with its fire rate.
  • SFAR-M GL – Has some nice firepower, large magazine size, great burstfire, and can be steadied with the proper position. The problem though is its lower handling, which makes it difficult to use this while being mobile. Just find a proper spot, line up your shot, fire, then move on.

These are the Battlefield 2042 best weapons to use in the game right now, and hopefully this helps you in choosing the right ones to carry around.

Battlefield 2042 is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
