When talking about the games that have defined 2024 so far, it’s impossible to omit xDefiant from the conversation.

Ubisoft’s free-to-play first-person shooter took the world by storm, swiftly rising to become one of the most popular games in the world.

With thousands of players joining the battlefield every day, it can be difficult for newcomers to adapt to meta trends

Luckily, we’ve thoroughly researched the current meta and singled out the best meta weapons and loadouts.

xDefiant Weapon meta tier list

xdefiant tier list

S tier xDefiant weapons

S tier- AK/47, M16A4, Tac-50, ACR

 

These weapons represent the creme de la creme of xDefiant’s best meta weapons.

Assault rifles are generally considered the most effective xDefiant weapons because of their versatility and reliability.

For this reason, 3 out of 4 entries in this tier are assault rifles as they continue to dominate the meta.

The black sheep among the AR’s is the Tac-50 sniper which is currently the most lethal long-range weapon in the game.

 

A tier xDefiant weapons

A tier – M44, MP7, P90, MK-20 SSR, Vector .45

 

While not exactly S-tier weapons, these guns are nothing to scoff at as they’re among the top meta performers.

This tier consists of a variety of weapons when it comes to class type and all of them can easily be considered S-tier if used by the right hands.

Predominantly consisting of SMGs though, our A tier features several SMG models that excel in close-range combat and mobility.

 

B tier xDefiant weapons

B tier – Double-barrel shotgun, M249, M5A2, M60, LVOA-C

 

This tier represents mediocre weapons that could ascend to the higher tiers with a couple of balance buffs.

Namely, the AR LVOA-C and M60 stand out as guns that could see an increase in meta play if they receive love from Ubisoft.

This weapon tier also features the Double-barrel shotgun which is the only somewhat relevant shotgun in the game.

C tier xDefiant weapons

C tier – RPK-74, M4A1, MDR, SVD

 

For one reason or another, weapons in this tier are not an optimal choice and are severely outclassed by other options of the same weapon class.

MDR and M4A1 assault rifles are statistically underpowered when compared to the top weapons in their tier like the AK/47 or M16A4.

Similarly, SVD and RPK-74 have better alternatives in the DMR and LMG weapon class.

 

D tier xDefiant weapons

D tier – M870, AA-12

 

This tier is dedicated to the bottom-of-the-barrel weapons that should be generally avoided at all costs.

Naturally, these include the two shotguns, those being the AA-12 and M870.

Even though they have different playstyles, one preferring a high fire rate while the other adopts a one-shot approach, both are very underpowered.

This is because they’re generally unreliable and inefficient, especially in any form of mid-to-long range combat.
