The M4 is a classic Assault Rifle that’s a perfect all-rounder in Warzone, reliably powerful at virtually any range. So, here’s the best M4 loadout to run in Warzone Season 3, with all the attachments, Perks, and Equipment needed to make the ideal build.

Assault Rifles are consistently among the most popular weapons in Warzone, and although the newer MW3 options have taken over, the M4 is still a solid choice. The classic AR has dominated plenty of CoD titles over the years, and it’s just as reliable as ever in Season 3.

With that in mind, here’s the best M4 loadout for Warzone 2 Season 3, with all the meta attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best Warzone M4 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: Hightower 20″ Barrel
  • Optic: JAK Glassless Optic
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

Kicking off the best Warzone M4 loadout is the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor Muzzle and Hightower 20″ Barrel, improving the AR’s improving its bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil control to make it more effective in long-range fights.

In my experience, this M4 build is incredibly easy to use in Warzone, but it lacks the laser accuracy of other meta picks in its category, so the JAK Glasses Optic is an essential pick as it helps to reduce the visual recoil that affects many MW2 guns. However, you could swap this for your preferred Optic if you want a little extra zoom, but you’ll have to cope with less stability.

The FTAC Ripper 56 Underbarrel also helps keep the weapon under control and the 60 Round Mag grants you enough ammo to eliminate all of your targets.

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: Ghost
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

The best M4 loadout in Warzone isn’t complete without the meta Perks, and the Double Time and Sleight of Hand combination is the ideal place to start. Double Time drastically improves your Tactical Sprint duration to make you more mobile, while Slight of Hands reduces reload times.

Next up, Tempered reduces the number of plates you need to reach maximum armor, Ghost hides you from enemy radars.
