The V9S pistol is currently one of the best guns in The Finals. It has high mobility and surprisingly high damage rates. The high damage rate occurs mainly because of the incredible fire rate of the V9S. It allows you to consistently win fights and move very fast at the same time.

  • Damage per shot: 18
  • Fire rate: 900

The XP-54 is based on the MP5 in real life. This is another noteworthy weapon for light builds. One of the key features of this gun is its scope, which allows players to be very accurate with their shots. Considering the relatively easy recoil and fire rate, the XP-54 makes for a deadly weapon in close ranges.

The old and reliable AK is known as the AKM in The Finals and is one of the first weapons you’ll get to use in the game. Overall, the AKM has great stats in every category. Solid damage, great accuracy, and easy recoil all make this gun one of the best weapons to use. The gun is strong at mid to long ranges and can make quick work of enemies.

R. 357

  • Magazine Size: 6
  • Damage per shot: 74
  • Fire rate: 180
  • Reload time: 2.5 seconds

If you’re looking to summon your inner Wild West shooter, the R. 357 is definitely for you. Compared to the other weapons in the S-Tier, this revolver demands the most accuracy. However, with some decent aim, this high-damage hand canon can outgun almost every player in the field. High risks mean high rewards.

Lewis Gun

  • Magazine Size: 47
  • Damage per shot: 25
  • Fire rate: 480
  • Reload time: 3.4 seconds

Although most of the guns in the Heavy Class aren’t as efficient and effective as the others, the Lewis Gin can be quite potent in chaotic fights. For a massive LMG, this gun has a very consistent recoil pattern alongside good damage. It pairs well with the high HP of the Heavy Units and allows players to win gunfights quite easily.

A – Tier

Statistically, some of the guns in the A-Tier are on the same level as the S-Tier, but they tend to be more situationally proactive. They aren’t as consistent in every situation compared to the higher-tiered guns.

Flamethrower

  • Magazine Size: 30
  • Damage per shot: 28
  • Fire rate: 180
  • Reload time: 4 seconds

Back in the beta phase, this weapon would have been the number one gun in the S-tier. However, recent balancing nerfs have caused this weapon to have lower damage than before. Still, the Flamethrower can deal massive damage across multiple enemies. You do need to be a little careful while using it because there is always the possibility of damaging your teammates. Aside from that, the Flamethrower is also useful in destroying goo barricades. The only downside is its range which makes it nearly obsolete in open areas.

SA1216

  • Magazine Size: 16
  • Damage per shot: 104
  • Fire rate: 140
  • Reload time: 3 seconds

The SA1216 is a very unique weapon, it is a four-barreled shotgun. The damage output for closer-range targets for this weapon is insane. The best way to use the gun is to spam when the enemy is at point-blank range. So, there is a learning curve for good positioning and getting used to the delay between shots, but once you can overcome that, you can be unstoppable.

Model 1887

  • Magazine Size: 6
  • Damage per shot: 125
  • Fire rate: 72
  • Reload time: 4 seconds

The Model 1887 might be categorized as a shotgun, but is effective for a much farther range compared to others. There is, however, a drawback: the fire rate. That means players will have to be quite accurate while using this gun. Due to the low bullet spread, the Model 1887 can be deadly in the right hands.

M11

  • Magazine Size: 40
  • Damage per shot: 25
  • Fire rate: 1020
  • Reload time: 2 seconds

The M11 is the default weapon for Light Build players. In many cases, it is quite similar to the SA1216. Therefore, it is important to play to the gun's strengths which are close-range fights and hitting your shots. Considering the accuracy and recoil, with a little practice, the M11 can be a laser beam.

B – Tier

These weapons are still very effective but require players to adjust quite a bit. They perform well if someone can cater to the dedicated playstyle these guns demand.

LH1

  • Magazine Size: 15
  • Damage per shot: 45
  • Fire rate: 550
  • Reload time: 2.8 seconds

The LH1 has one of the fastest kill times across all builds in the game but has one major drawback. It lacks accuracy because of its horizontal recoil. If a player can adjust to this flaw, then they can turn out to be a menace on the battlefield.

FCAR

  • Magazine Size: 20
  • Damage per shot: 30
  • Fire rate: 600
  • Reload time: 1.8 seconds

Next to the AKM, the FCAR is the next rifle that is available for Medium builds. Despite it having great accuracy and pretty easy recoil, the main reason why the FCAR is overshadowed by the AKM is its magazine size. Despite being effective in long-range fights, it does not show the same result as the other in most situations.
