Optics are mostly down to personal preference, but we like the Aim-OP V4 as it offers great accuracy at medium to long range. In the Underbarrel slot, we recommend the 5.56 High Velocity Ammunition, which improves the weapon’s firepower in long-range engagements.

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

The first Perk is Overkill, 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.
