In Call of Duty Warzone 2, the M4 is one of the strongest weapons you can use in Season 1, and we'll get you the best loadout & class for you!

That's what the guide is about: We show you the M4 in our Warzone 2 loadout guide and present you with the best build for this weapon. You have either already unlocked the appropriate attachments through Modern Warfare 2, or you still have to get them by playing Warzone 2.

Warzone 2 - Best M4 Loadout in Season 1

This is our M4 build for Warzone 2 in all its glory.

The Best Attachments for the M4

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle COMP - Improves recoil absorption & control.
  • Barrel: Hightower 20" Barrel - Improves range and accuracy
  • Underbarrel: -
  • Stock: Demo Precision Elite Factory - Improves recoil control and target stability
  • Sight: VLK 4.0 Optic - Improves range and accuracy
  • Laser: -
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag - Increases ammunition capacity but decreases overall velocity
  • Grip: -

Why these attachments: The M4 is a true all-rounder and can be equipped with a variety of attachments. Still, the gun is not the most lethal, and that is exactly what we want to change. With the Hightower 20" barrel, VLK 4.0 Optic sight, and Demo Precision Elite Factory stock, we improve range, stability, and accuracy. This ensures that the M4 will deal high damage even at long range, which is quite common in Warzone 2, and will make your opponents bite the dust quickly.

With the FTAC Castle COMP, we also improve control and recoil absorption. Combined with the 60-round magazine, you can take out your opponents with ease.

The Best Perks & Gear for the Best M4 Loadout in Warzone 2.

Modern Warfare 2 has countless perks and perk packs that you can choose from to get started quickly. These perks also come into play in Warzone 2 and you should think carefully about which ones you pack for this loadout/build.

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost

Why these perks? Double Time allows you to sprint twice as long to get from cover to cover quickly and Bomb Squad reduces damage taken from explosive weapons. Fast Hands makes you reload and use your equipment faster, so you always have the upper hand in fast-paced situations. The ultimate perk is Ghost, which allows you to remain invisible to your enemies' radar systems or scanners.

Which Grenades & Equipment?

  • Explosive grenade: Semtex
  • Tactical equipment: STIM (syringe) or Stun Grenade

This Secondary Weapon Fits the M4 Loadout

In the normal multiplayer of Call of Duty, secondary weapons are mostly superfluous. But especially in Warzone and DMZ, you often need exactly this secondary weapon. For the best M4 loadout in Warzone 2, you take a pistol with you because you lack the perk for a 2nd main weapon. This is where the X12 comes in quite handy.

Choose the X12:

  • Muzzle: Corvus Series-D
  • Sight:
  • Laser:
  • Grip: Cronen LIMA-6
  • Trigger Action: XRK Lightning Fire
  • Barrel: XRK Sidewinder-6 Slide
  • Magazine:

The most important thing here is the trigger. With the XRK Lightning Fire, you can shoot the pistol very quickly if you run out of ammo on your M4 in the middle of a fight.

How do you Unlock the M4 for Warzone 2 & DMZ?

You don't have to do anything else to play the M4 in Warzone 2 and DMZ. The M4 is a standard weapon that you can select from the beginning. Only the many attachments have to be unlocked over time.
