Best M4A1 loadouts for Call of Duty: Warzone

The M4A1 has been the dominant assault rifle in Modern Warfare since the game released, but it has recently taken a backseat in Warzone to the Grau 5.56. However, with a nerf being lined up for the latter, we take a look at the best ways to use the M4A1 in Verdansk. 

If you turn your attention to professional Call of Duty, one assault rifles dominates – the M4A1. Its moderate recoil and high fire rate are complemented by its incredible damage output, which has seen it cement itself as the go-to AR for nearly all players.


However, Warzone and Modern Warfare are very different, and the Grau’s lack of recoil has seen it become more favorable in Verdansk. Infinity Ward have confirmed a nerf is coming to Grau with Season 4’s mid-season update, meaning the M4A1 will probably come to rule Verdansk too.

Here are two powerful ways to run it, one designed for longer ranges and the other for players more confident of controlling its recoil.


Best M4A1 Warzone loadout for long ranges

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock M16 Grenadier
  • G.I. Mini Reflex
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 50 round mags

First up, on this longer-range class, you’ll notice the Monolithic Suppressor and Stock M16 Grenadier. These will offer a significant boost to damage range, as well as stabilizing shots to a significant degree. The suppressor will also keep you off enemy mini maps.

Next up is the Merc Foregrip, which will augment your recoil control and maximize your efficiency in distant gunfights. This will be complemented by the 50 round mags, which enable you to take on multiple players simultaneously, without the need to stop and reload. Although you could use 60 round mags, the weight increase isn’t worth the extra 10 shots.

Finally, the G.I. Mini Reflex is one you can swap out for a different sight, if you prefer. We’re just recommending optics on this class because the M4A1’s iron sights aren’t ideal for long-range engagements.

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Corvus Custom Marksman
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 50 round mags

For this close to medium range class, the M4A1’s iron sights will be sufficient. We’d recommend running a sniper in the back pocket for this class, to ensure you can still challenge enemies at long ranges.

The Monolithic Suppressor and 50 round mags remain, for the aforementioned reasons. We’ve swapped out the Stock M16 Grenadier barrel for the Corvus Custom Marksman, because the latter still improves range and recoil, without the significant reduction in handling and mobility.

The Commando Foregrip also stabilizes shots, without the penalties incurred by the Merc Foregrip. Finally, the FORGE TAC CQS speeds up ADS, enabling you to snap aim on enemies at shorter distances.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.


So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps. 


What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player


“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
