M16 in Warzone 2

Warzone 2 features the M16 Assault Rifle as a deadly long-range option, and we’ve got you covered with the best M16 loadout that you can create in Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded.

Assault Rifles are an ideal pick in Warzone 2 for dishing out a ton of damage in both medium and long-range battles across the Al Mazrah map. The classic M16 Assault Rifle is a decent choice for fans of burst-fire guns.

You can make the M16 into a powerhouse by choosing the right selection of weapon attachments, Perks, and equipment. If you’re wondering how to put together the best loadout for it then we’ve got you covered.

Here’s the best M16 loadout for Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded.

Best Warzone 2 M16 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: XTEN Ported 290
  • Barrel: 14″ Carbine Shroud
  • Optic: Schlager 3.4X
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

We’ll start off the best Warzone 2 M16 loadout by equipping the XTEN Ported 290 Muzzle and 14″ Carbine Shroud Barrel to buff the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control. Next, we’ll equip the VX Pineapple, which buffs your hip-fire accuracy and reduces kickback.

You can then use the magnification of the Schlager 3.4X Optic to take down enemies from a distance. Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the 45 Round Mag which grants you enough ammo to eliminate multiple foes.

Best Warzone 2 M16 loadout Perk Package and equipment

  • Perk Package: Weapon Specialist
  • Perk 1: Overkill
  • Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor
  • Tactical Equipment: Drill Charge
  • Lethal Equipment: Flash Grenade

We chose the Weapon Specialist Perk Package to pair with the M16 with an SMG like the Lachmann Sub for close-range battles with Overkill Perk, and Strong Arm allows us to throw equipment further.

Spotter is useful for locating enemy killstreaks, and Survivor ensures that teammates revive you quickly. Coming to equipment, we chose Drill Charges to deal explosive damage, and Flash Grenades to temporarily blind foes.

How to unlock M16 in Warzone 2

If you want to unlock the M16 in Warzone 2 then you’ll need to get the 556 Icarus LMG to level 14. Once you’ve accomplished this, you can select the weapon’s Receiver and begin using it in matches.

This can be done after grinding for a few games, and you can make use of Double XP Tokens that allow you to level up faster.

Best alternatives to the M16 in Warzone 2

If you want a viable alternative to the M16 then you can try out the TAQ-56, which is ideal for long-range battles.

The M4 Assault Rifle is another great option for dishing out damage to enemies and is one of the most versatile guns in the game.
