While the M4 is an incredible weapon in its own right, it only reaches its full potential once set up with the best attachments. Then there’s the full loadout to pair it with, including the Perk Package, and Tactical/Lethal Gear.
Here’s the best attachments to put on the M4 assault rifle, as well as some tips on using it. We’ll also recommend a full loadout to use alongside the gun, including which secondary weapon to bring with you when you drop into Al Mazrah.
‘Warzone 2’ best M4 attachments
Let’s begin with the best M4 attachments to use in Warzone 2. You’ll find them in the list below:
- Barrel: Hightower 20″ Barrel
- Stock: Corio Precio Factory
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Under: XTEN Nexus Grip
- Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
While unlocking these attachments, you may notice that you are unable to max out your gun’s level. This is due to the new shared progression Receiver system. You’ll need to level up guns like the M16, FTAC Recon and 556 Icarus to unlock every attachment. Head into the progression tab to find what you need.
These attachments prioritise handling and damage range, while also reducing recoil. You’ll be able to sprint around and start shooting quickly after spotting a target, and can still battle at range. This is an Assault Rifle build, so works best at medium range.
Best M4 loadout for Warzone 2 battle royale
The M4 is a great gun, but won’t win you matches on its own. Instead, you’ll want to make sure your whole loadout matches its style and pace of play. Here’s the best loadout for the M4 in Warzone 2:
- Secondary: P890
- Tactical: Flash Grenade
- Lethal: Semtex
- Perk Package: Specter
Run with this loadout and you’ll be able to move quickly, stunning enemies and sticking Semtex up into camping spots. Ghost will keep you hidden in the late-game, and Double-Time will keep you moving.
