The M4 is an iconic CoD weapon, and it’s a standout pick once again in Warzone 2 thanks to its low recoil and powerful TTK. With this in mind, we’ve put together the best M4 loadout in Warzone 2, complete with meta attachments and perks.

Best M4 Warzone 2 loadout

  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Barrel: Hightower 20″ Barrel
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

We begin our best M4 loadout with the Echoless-80 Muzzle, which improves the weapon’s bullet velocity while also keeping your shots off the enemies minimap. Then we’ve gone for the Hightower 20″ Barrel, for another boost to bullet velocity as well as general damage range.

Optics are mostly down to personal preference, but we like the Cronen Mini Pro as it offers great accuracy without consuming the whole screen. In the Underbarrel slot, we recommend the FSS Sharkfin 90, which drastically improves recoil control to make the M4 a laser at mid-range, ideal for the open spaces of Al Mazrah.

Lastly, if you’re playing Warzone 2 on squads, you’re going to need enough ammo to take down multiple enemies without reloading. That’s why we’ve picked the 60 Round Mags to help you dispatch as much of the opposing team as possible before having to change clips.

Best M4 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Resupply
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenades

There is currently no option to edit Perk Packages in Warzone 2, so recommend opting for the Vanguard option. The first Perk included is Double Time, which allows you to bring another primary weapon, such as an SMG or Sniper Rifle.

Explosives can end your match quickly if you’re not careful, so Bomb Squad is ideal for extra protection. Then, Resupply refills your own equipment every 30 seconds.

Al Mazrah is full of buildings for players to hide in, so it’s hard to spot every enemy team. Luckily, the Vanguard package features High Alert, which causes your screen to pulse when spotted by a rival player.

Equipment-wise, you can’t go wrong with Semtex to quickly flush a squad out of a building, paired with Flash Grenades to disorientate players before moving in for the kill.

Best M4 alternatives in Warzone 2

It may take some time for you to find the perfect weapon in Warzone 2, so if the M4 isn’t working you could switch to the TAQ-56 AR. Another powerful long-range AR, the TAQ-56 makes short work of foes with its strong damage output and top-tier stability.

But if you want something a little more mobile, the Kastov-74u could be the way to go. It’s absolutely lethal and is perfectly paired up alongside a meta sniper. While you won’t be beaming anyone from a distance with this trusty AR, it’s hard to outmatch this gun at medium range.
