M13 Assault Rifle in CoD Warzone

The M13 in Call of Duty: Warzone still remains one of the best Modern Warfare weapons in Warzone Pacific due to its high rate of fire and low recoil. Here’s how you can take advantage of this deadly weapon with the best loadout possible.

Even in Warzone Pacific Season 4, an old meta is taking back its former glories with the old, reliable M13 AR still dominating in the right hands.

This well-rounded rifle has one of the best fire rates among Modern Warfare’s weapons and if you use the right attachments, it can also come with little-to-no recoil.

This enables players to effortlessly beam their enemies with laser-like precision. Whether you’re tired of using the meta Assault Rifles or just want to use one of the game’s classic weapons, then our M13 loadout will enable you to remain competitive no matter the season.


Best M13 Warzone loadout

The M13 is still an incredibly sharp AR in Warzone Pacific.


  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus Marksman
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60-Round Mags

Starting off with one of the most popular attachments in Warzone: the Monolithic Suppressor. This is one of the go-to AR attachments due to the fact that it reduces your sound and increases your damage range. Yes, there’s a decrease in your ADS time and your aim steadiness, but the benefits far outway the negatives.

Moving onto the barrel, we have the Tempus Marksman. This also increases your damage range by 33%, while also improving the weapon’s bullet velocity by a whopping 50% and even improving recoil control. Again, it’ll have a negative impact on your ADS speed, as well as your movement speed, but the Tempus helps turn the M13 into an incredibly precise laser beam.

The M13 can almost be hitscan if you put the right attachments on it.

The Commando Foregrip will also help with the M13’s recoil, while also having the added benefit of helping mitigate the aim steadiness problems caused by the Monolithic Suppressor. This attachment also ensures your shots remain accurate when using the VLK 3.ox Optic.

Finally, we have the 60-round magazine, which will help you stay on target longer – an area that is incredibly important if you wish to aim for those all-important squad wipes.

Best M13 setup (Perks & equipment)

The M13 boasts a great rate of fire and fantastic precision.
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: Marco 5
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stims

You’d be surprised how many people are still running Combat Scout in Warzone, so having Cold-Blooded is perfect for keeping you hidden when being shot.

The Overkill perk enables the use of the Marco 5 – which still remains arguably the best SMG in Warzone — and only does this enable you to remain competitive in late-game circles, but it also allows for some incredibly mobile plays.

While Amped enables you quickly swap to your secondary in close-quarter scenarios. These perks are found on all of our meta Warzone loadouts, especially since they increase your overall survivability and combat effectiveness.

Lastly, Semtex and Stims give you the tools needed to hunt enemy players and flush out pesky campers.

How to unlock the M13 in Warzone

The M13 is one of the easiest ARs to unlock in Warzone.

The M13 AR is unlocked by reaching Level 39 in CoD Warzone. This is one of the easiest guns to unlock and will only take a few sessions to grind through instead of needing challenge requirements to overcome.

It can be an especially quick process if you pop some 2XP codes and hunt down as many contracts as possible in the likes of Plunder or Rebirth.
