Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2’s Gunsmith system lets players create a variety of different weapons, so here’s how to bring back the classic Commando from Black Ops 1.

With Modern Warfare 2’s Gunsmith system, you can completely change how weapons look and behave. This opens the door for other classic weapons to be built, such as the classic UMP 45 and G36C in Modern Warfare 2019 and the original Warzone.

Thanks to Reddit user ‘TeamLoveAndStuff,’ here are all of the attachments you can use to turn the M4 into the fan-favorite Commando Assault Rifle from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops.

M4 ‘Commando’ loadout in Warzone 2 & Modern Warfare 2

black ops commando m4 build in modern warfare 2Modern Warfare 2’s M4 can be turned into Black Ops’ classic Commando.
  • Muzzle: Cronen Maw-86
  • Barrel: 11.5″ Carbine Shroud
  • Optic: DF105 Reflex Sight
  • Underbarrel: M203
  • Camo: Charcoal

While it might not be the meta loadout, these attachments will make Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2’s M4 look like the classic Commando Assault Rifle that also featured in Cold War as the XM4.

You could only equip one attachment back in the original Black Ops, so if you want to be completely authentic then you’ll only be able to equip the barrel, Cronen Maw-86 muzzle, and one other attachment.

However, since this is a modern Call of Duty you can equip a handful of attachments that the Commando offered. This includes the red dot sight, underbarrel grenade launcher, silencer, and extended mag.

Modern Warfare 2’s M4 isn’t completely black, so you can use the Charcoal camo to give it the authentic look. It won’t have the sling wrapped around it, but it’s as close as you’re going to get without it.

Perhaps there’s room for a blueprint with the sling attached to arrive, but we’ll have to wait and see what Infinity Ward have in store for future seasons.
