Free Fire Best Weapons Guide: Which is the Right Gun For You?

Garena Free Fire has a lot of guns to choose from, and it can be a daunting task to figure out which one is right for you. That’s why we’ve prepared this handy guide that will take you through the best weapons available in the game and help you choose the perfect one for you based on your preferred play style. 

We’ll start off with the decent ones and build up to which ones we think are the absolute best. You will find guns from all the categories here and pick any of them, because ultimately the best weapon for you will be one that you feel the most comfortable using.


Let’s start off with the MP40. This is hands down the best SMG in Free Fire which is perfect for close-range combat. Thanks to its high rate of fire, it can easily shred through any number of enemies should they dare to come close to you. It’s damage output is pretty good too. It’s very useful for all kinds of players and keeping it in your primary slot will make sure you don’t have to worry about close-range combat.


If you like using Shotguns, then the M1014 is the best shotgun you’ll find in Free Fire. It is absolutely lethal at close range. With its high damage and decent rate of fire it can make quick work of your enemies without running a sweat. And, it’s pretty easy to find in the battlefield, so even if you don’t normally use shotguns but can’t get your hands on an MP40, the M1014 will make a solid substitute for you.


The AWM is the best Sniper Rifle in the game. So much so, that simply its name is enough to instill fear in your enemies. Finding it is not an easy task at all, but if you can manage to get your hands on it you should definitely use it because it has incredibly high damage output. It can feel slow but a single shot of this gun can be enough to take your enemy down. So work on your aim and you’ll be killing left and right with the AWM in no time.


The M60 rifle has extremely high damage output. It is a great rifle which you can spray and take down enemies easily because it has low recoil. It’s rate of fire is pretty good too, and that combination makes it a solid option for players who like to spray.


The AK47 is an assault rifle that needs no introduction at all. This is the favourite weapon of a lot of people because of its high damage. But one issue with this gun is its high recoil, so the best way to use it is with Level 3 attachments. Thanks to the recoild, you have a higher chance of taking headshots using the AK47 which is another reason why people love this gun.


The SCAR is also a great assault rifle with a high rate of fire. This can deal a lot of damage to your enemies but even this is best used with Level 3 attachments. However, using this is a little easier than the AK47, so you might be able to net kills more easily with the SCAR.


FAMAS is another solid assault rifle whose damage is a little higher than the SCAR. Its rate of fire is pretty good too so if you can find this, we recommend it over the SCAR any day.  


The M4A1 is the most well-balanced assault rifle you can find in Free Fire. It can be used very effectively even without any attachments, thanks to its high damage, high rate of fire and low recoil. This would be the go-to assault rifle for beginners or people who don’t want to get too much into weapon statistics and just want to have fun running and gunning with their friends.


The Groza is hands down the best assault rifle you’ll find in Free Fire. The sad part is, that you can only find it in air drops, but it if you, go with it because it’s better than all the other assault rifles. It has a high rate of fire, high damage and very low recoil. So if you can get to an airdrop and loot it, by all means do it because it will be worth it.


The last weapon on our list the M79 grenade launcher. You won’t be able to find this easily in the field, but in case you do, be prepared to literally blow your enemies away. Its damage is unsurprisingly very high, and using it is a piece of cake. If you’re the only person left in your squad and you’re up against teams of 2 or more people, the M79 can be an absolute godsend, because it you can use it well you’ll be able to take multiple people down with a single shot.

These were our picks for the best weapons available in Garena Free Fire. Stay tuned for more weapons guides and other tips and tricks for all your favourite games, and let us know your favourite guns from Free Fire in the comments.
