Here’s the best XM4 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 5.

Best Warzone XM4 loadout attachments

Warzone XM4 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 RND

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout by boosting the XM4’s bullet velocity and damage range with the help of the Agency Suppressor muzzle and 13.5″ Task Force barrel. The muzzle’s sound suppression will keep your shots hidden from enemy minimaps.

Next, we’ll bring the weapon’s recoil under control with the Field Agent Grip, and you can use the Axial Arms 3x optic to pick off enemies from a distance since the XM4’s iron sights are obtrusive.

Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the 45 RND magazine to ensure that the weapon has plenty of ammo to take down multiple enemies across Caldera, Fortune’s Keep, and Rebirth Island.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone XM4 class

Overkill perk in Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

We recommend equipping E.O.D as your first Perk to help you withstand explosive damage from grenades and thermites. Overkill will allow you to get two primary weapons from your loadout so that you can pair the XM4 with an SMG like the Marco 5.
