Call of Duty content creator Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has revealed his “no recoil” M4 loadout for Call of Duty: Warzone, demonstrating just how devastating this assault rifle can be. 

The M4 has remained one of the most popular weapons in both Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer and Warzone modes since release. While it may have lost its top-place ranking to the likes of the Kilo 141 and Grau assault rifles, the M4 still has great kill potential. This highly versatile AR boasts incredible damage across close to medium range engagements, making it the perfect gun for Warzone.

This particular loadout aims to push the M4 to its ranged limits, giving players the chance to effortlessly beam enemy squads across Verdansk with minimal recoil. Not only does this loadout give the Kilo a run for its money, it also demonstrates just how deadly this assault rifle truly is.

Best M4 loadout for Warzone

The M4 is still one of the best assault rifles in Warzone.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Corvus Custom Marksman
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic.
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

Nick’s build is purely tailored around boosting the M4’s already potent mid-range damage, while also keeping the gun’s accuracy high. This does greatly impact the assault rifle’s overall mobility and viability in close-quarters scenarios, but the pinpoint precision is well worth the trade-off.

Both the Monolithic Suppressor and Corvus Custom Marksman greatly enhance the M4’s damage range. If that wasn’t enough, the added bullet velocity and sound suppression make hitting mid-range targets a breeze. As the name suggests, the Monolithic Suppressor quietens your shots and stops you from appearing on the mini-map whenever you fire. This is extremely important when you wish to get the drop on enemy squads in the late-game. 

Meanwhile, the VLK 3.0x Optic offers great visual clarity which is extremely important when you’re aiming for those all-important headshots. This optic also comes packed with hidden recoil reduction, giving you fantastic mid- to long-range precision. It’s certainly not hard to see why the VLK remains the go-to optic in Warzone. 

The Ranger Foregrip adds further recoil control and aiming stability. Warzone’s meta guns all feature minimal recoil, so it won’t come as a surprise that this loadout aims to reduce the M4’s already negligible vertical kick. This attachment keeps the M4 stable when firing for heavy durations, allowing you to purely focus on landing your shots and racking up those montage-worthy kills.

Rounding things off at the bottom of the list is the 60 Round Mags. Unlike the standard multiplayer, Warzone’s enemies require a few more shots to take down. Fortunately, the 60 Round Mag gives you plenty of bullets to melt through even the tankiest of targets. The 60 Round Mag is a must for any player that’s aiming to secure high kill count games and satisfying squad wipes.

Nick uses this M4 build to go on a 23-kill tear, proving that the M4 is still one of the best assault rifles in the current meta.

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. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

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.
