Call of Duty: WWII

The second weekend of the Call of Duty: WWII Beta is underway and there are several different maps and game modes that players can enjoy during the beta. New weapons, a new map and a new scorestreak have also been added.

The Beta had powerful weapons from the get-go, however, Sledgehammer Games added new weapons into the game. The new weapons that were added to the beta are Waffe 28 SMG, M1A1 Carbine Assault Rifle, M1903 Sniper Rifle and the Toggle Action Shotgun. There are at least 3 different weapons in each weapon category, and this guide will help you by find the best weapons in the Call of Duty: WWII Beta.

Best Weapons In The Call of Duty: WWII Beta:

In the Beta, there are several different weapons to choose from, however, there are some that stand out, and perform better than others. Keep in mind, there will be weapons listed in this guide that you might not like, but they can work well for other players with different play styles.

Grease Gun:

The Grease Gun is one of the most underrated guns in the Beta. The weapon has great stability and damage output, however, it is not the best, when it comes to the fire rate. The low fire rate also has a benefit, as it allows players to eliminate targets at a distance, but the gun is not ideal in close range encounters. Quickdraw and grip are great attachments for the weapon, but you can use rapid fire, if you think it is necessary.


The PPSH-1 is a gun that might not perform well at the beginning, however, once you unlock a few attachments for the weapon, it is one of the best ones in the game. The high fire rate results in a lot of recoil, but with the grip attachment, the gun performs extremely well. Quickdraw and Grip or Grip and Extended Mags is recommended on the weapon.

Type 100:

The Type 100 is the best weapon a player can use in the Call of Duty: WWII Beta. The low recoil, decent fire rate and high damage output allows players to challenge enemies at any distance and take them out with ease. The weapon performs well in close quarters combat as well. Quickdraw and grip are the ideal attachments for this weapon.


The STG44 is the best Assault Rifle in the Call of Duty: WWII Beta. The weapon has great fire rate and little to no recoil, along with great damage output. The STG44 makes quick work of enemies, regardless of their location. The low recoil allows players to take out enemy units at a distance with ease. The best attachments for this weapon are the Quickdraw, Grip and Rapid Fire, however, if you have a hard time using the iron sights, then players can replace the Rapid Fire or Quickdraw attachment for the Lens Sight or Reflex Sight.

M1A1 Carbine:

The new Assault Rifle, M1A1 Carbine, is a great weapon to use. The Semi-automatic rifle is ideal for long range encounters, due to the high damage output and low recoil. The weapon kills in three shots and you can use various attachments with the weapon. Quickdraw and grip are a must-have, while you can pick any attachment as your third, if you Infantry Level 2 or high.

Winchester 1897:

If you are an aggressive player, who runs around with shotguns, then the Winchester 1897 is the weapon for you. The Pump-action shotgun has a high damage output, which allows you to kill enemies with one hit at close range. Steady Aim and Advanced Rifling are the best attachments for this weapon. You can equip the Expeditionary Division to give yourself 4 Incendiary Shells that will light your enemies on fire. A very fun weapon to use, and lethal as well.

Hopefully this guide helped you find the best weapon for your play style in Call of Duty: WWII Beta. Call of Duty: WWII comes out on November 3rd for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
