Here is our Back 4 Blood Weapon Tier List. Find out the best guns in the game to shoot some zombies in Back 4 Blood.

Back 4 Blood offers a multitude of viable methods for gamers to slaughter hordes of the undead. Players have access to a variety of weapons, including shotguns, snipers, and automatic pistols; they will almost likely find one that suits them. Additionally, players’ seemingly limitless access to attachments for their guns can produce some amazingly powerful weaponry.

Some weapons are simply better than others in Back 4 Blood without the need for any special attachments, and as many players will discover, a base weapon with no attachments can be more viable in certain situations than a fully decked-out gun simply due to the inherent characteristics of each firearm. When preparing to face an attack against the Ridden, this tier list should assist beginners to Back 4 Blood in deciding what to keep and what to discard. Here is our Back 4 Blood Weapon Tier List.
