Summit1g reveals powerful M4A1 loadout he uses to win Warzone matches

With Warzone being such a huge hit following its launch, Call of Duty players are trying to find the perfect loadouts to use in the battle royale game – and Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar might have found it.

One of the main features of Activision’s newest entry into the battle royale genre is the Loadout Drop, which costs $6000 and allows players to pick up any loadout from their public match classes and use them in the mode.

Though a divisive feature, this, of course, means people have had to experiment with some of their class loadouts to be usable in Warzone, and Summit’s might just be the best we’ve seen, combining stealth and range to help him maintain an incredible record.

Loadout Drops give players the opportunity to pick up their favored weapons.

If you’ve played the game much at all, you’ll know an Overkill class – featuring two primary weapons – is a near-necessity in Warzone, and can greatly alter your chances when you drop in on Verdansk. This usually features an M4A1 assault rifle and some kind of sniper rifle.

So what does Summit use on his M4 Overkill class? Let’s take a look.

Primary Weapon: M4A1 Assault Rifle

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic: Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

Secondary Weapon: Kar98 Marksman Rifle

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6”
  • Optic: Sniper scope
  • Stock: STVOL Precision Comb
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

The most notable addition to each gun is the Monolithic Suppressor, which is great for keeping Summit concealed on the minimap when shooting, making enemies second guess where they’re being shot from at any given time.

Outside of his two primary weapons, Summit’s perks are Cold-Blooded, Overkill, and Amped: the former keeping him hidden from the ever-present thermal sniper scopes, and the latter allowing him to swap weapons faster in case he finds himself in a bit of a predicament.

Finally, a Semtex and a Smoke Grenade occupy the Lethal and Tactical grenade slots, with the smoke being especially helpful if he ever needs to make a sneaky getaway, which could be the difference between a win and a loss in battle royale games.

Activision
Verdansk is one of the largest maps in battle royale.

Although everyone may not be quite as skilled as Summit, we can see why he runs this class: it’s perfectly built to pick up wins and offers itself to a more stealthy playstyle, which is particularly helpful to a map as vast as Verdansk where you want to keep your position as secret as possible.

Start using this loadout, and you might see your Warzone win record start picking up on another level.
