Here are all the attachments, Perks and Equipment you need to build the best M4 loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.



Best M4 loadout in Warzone 2

The classic M4 Assault Rifle returns in Warzone 2, so we’re breaking down everything you need to build the best M4 loadout in Season 1 including attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Assault Rifles dominated Call of Duty: Warzone right up until the battle royale goes offline to make way for Warzone 2. If you’re looking to score your first win in Al Mazrah then we expect Assault Rifles to be a fantastic choice yet again, and because the M4 is the first one you’ll unlock, you’ll want to build the best loadout right away.

After having our hands on the M4 in Modern Warfare 2, we’ve picked out the attachments that will make up the best M4 loadout for Warzone 2’s early game meta.

Best Warzone 2 M4 loadout attachments

Best Warzone 2 M4 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Barrel: Hightower 20″ Barrel
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

For the best M4 loadout in Warzone 2, we recommend building the Assault Rifle to maximize its recoil control, damage range, and bullet velocity. But, you also don’t want to pile it with too many attachments that hurt its ADS speed.

To start, we’re combining the Echoless-80 Muzzle and Hightower 20″ Barrel to vastly improve the M4’s bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil control. Plus, the suppressor will be vital as it will hide your shots from the mini map.

Next, we’re going with the Cronen Mini Pro because it’s one of the cleanest blue dot sights in the game. The VLK 4.0x is also a solid choice if you prefer to take long-range fights but it will severely hurt your ADS speed.

The FSS Sharkfin 90 Underbarrel is perfect as it helps keep the weapon under control without offering any downside. Other Underbarrel attachments may help more with recoil control but will slow down the weapon even further.

Finally, we’ve opted for the 45 Round Mag on the best Warzone 2 M4 loadout. It’s a solid bump over the default 30 but won’t slow down the M4 as much as the 60 Round Mag. But if you mainly play Quads then the loss of mobility might be a worthwhile trade.

As the meta evolves there may be even more effective M4 loadouts, but this will be a great option in Warzone 2’s early game meta.

Best Warzone 2 M4 loadout Perk Package & Equipment

Best Warzone 2 M4 loadout Perks and equipment
  • Perk Package: Specter (Tracker, Double Time, Spotter, and Ghost)
  • Tactical Equipment: Heartbeat Sensor
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge

For the Perks and Equipment to use with the best M4 loadout in Warzone 2, we recommend opting for the Specter Perk Package which contains both Tracker and Double Time to pick up your enemies’ trail by tracking their prints and get around Al Mazrah much faster.

Spotter will ensure that you don’t fall victim to enemy Equipment like Claymores when entering a building. Then, we expect Ghost to be a vital Perk once again, hiding you from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

For Equipment, guaranteeing yourself a Heartbeat Sensor is always a good idea, but you should keep other Tacticals in your Backpack for when it runs out. And the Drill Charge complements the Heartbeat perfectly as you can hit campers through the wall.

How to unlock M4 in Warzone 2

Luckily, the M4 is one of the first weapons that Warzone 2 players will unlock, so simply reach Level 4 to unlock the Gunsmith and start building the best loadout.

Then, make sure you check out how to get your loadout so you can use your own M4 in Warzone 2.

Best alternatives to the M4 in Warzone 2

There are plenty of other great options in Warzone 2, with YouTuber JGOD predicting the RAAL MG to be a top choice.

If you prefer something with more mobility to pair with a Sniper Rifle, then the FSS Hurricane is expected to be another strong choice.
