Looking for the best KG M40 loadout in Warzone? The KG M40 boasts the second highest damage per shot in the ​​assault rifle category, yet it’s surprisingly accurate when fired from mid to long range. With a fire rate above 600 RPM, you might struggle to control the weapon’s recoil at first, but this can be managed with enough practice.

Using our best KG M40 loadout, we can bolster the weapon’s accuracy even further to turn this gun into a low recoil monster from a distance. We’ve taken advantage of the balance changes in Warzone Season 4 to create a highly accurate KG M40 with very little recoil. The last few weapons added to the battle royale game have shook up the meta, including the Marco 5 and H4 Blixen, two excellent weapons that have become staples of the game. Here’s everything you need to build the best KG M40 loadout in Warzone Pacific.

The best Call of Duty Warzone KG M40 loadout is:

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
  • Scope: 1229/Slate 3.25x Custom
  • Stock: VDD 22G Padded
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 40 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Perk 1: Tight Grip
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The MX Silencer is a great choice for the muzzle slot as it improves the KG M40’s vertical and horizontal recoil control, perfect for landing consistent shots from a distance. This attachment does hurt the weapon’s aim down sight speed, but this isn’t too bad considering we won’t be fighting at close range. To top it off, the MX Silencer adds sound suppression to the assault rifle, stopping any shots from appearing on the minimap.

Up next is the Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded which has the largest impact on the KG M40. Sacrificing mobility for stability and control, this barrel substantially improves the gun’s bullet velocity, recoil control, and overall accuracy. There are some bonus effects too, such as flinch resistance, and reduced scope sway and gun bob to make long range shooting slightly easier. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of reduced aim down sight speed, sprint to fire speed, and movement speed.

To reinforce the long range capabilities of the KG M40, the 1229/Slate 3.25x Custom seems like a smart choice. For the stock, the VDD 22G Padded is a great option that also trades mobility for accuracy. The stock forgoes aim down sight speed, spring to fire speed, and hip fire accuracy in exchange for improved recoil, accuracy, and movement speed. Equip the Taped Grip to improve the KG M40’s stability while aiming.

We’ve gone for the 6.5mm Sakura 40 Round Mags which reduces the weapon’s damage and bullet penetration, but it introduces huge changes to the KG M40. Not only does the assault rifle gain drastically improved recoil control and accuracy, we also see a boost to the gun’s fire rate, movement speed, and aim down sight speed. For the ammunition, pick Lengthened to improve the gun’s bullet velocity without introducing any negative effects.

The M1930 Strife Angled underbarrel bolsters our game plan by improving the KG M40’s horizontal recoil control. Following on from this, Tight Grip increases the weapon’s accuracy while continuously firing to make the KG M40 incredibly accurate from a distance. Finally, Fully Loaded adds more starting ammo to the KG M40 – this should stop you from running out of bullets just as the match starts to heat up.

And that’s everything you need to create the best KG M40 loadout in Warzone. Our KG M40 build has been designed for mid to long range encounters, so we highly recommend picking one of the best SMGs in Warzone as a secondary weapon.
