The best M13 loadout in Warzone

Want to try something different from the usual Warzone meta? The best M13 loadout is a classic Modern Warfare gun, and it's highly effective on Caldera

What is the best M13 loadout in Warzone? The M13 is often overlooked in Call of Duty’s battle royale as it can lack some punch over long distances. However, the M13 is a machine in close and mid-range battles, with next to no vertical recoil and a rate of fire that makes up for its low damage per shot rating. On top of this, it’s also very mobile and quick to aim down sights with.

It’s harder to quantify, but the best M13 loadout simply feels good to use in Warzone – provided you don’t try to kill snipers with it. Shooting from long distances with the M13 works well enough, but you won’t be able to down enemies very easily unless they have already lost their armour. In order to get the best out of this underutilised AR, we’ve put together our pick of the best M13 attachments for the dream Warzone M13 loadout.

For this setup we’ve tried to maximise the aim down sights speed, improve the range and recoil further, and ensure it still has all the essential features of the best Warzone guns, namely a suppressor and big magazines. We also have an alternative M13 class setup that features a short range optic and slightly better handling stats.

Here is the best Call of Duty Warzone M13 loadout:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Tempus Marksman
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • 60 Round Mags
  • Commando Foregrip

While the M13 has nearly no vertical recoil, it can veer off to the right even with these attachments, so try pulling a little left as you shoot for the best results. The Monolithic Suppressor is essential as it trades aim walking steadiness and aim down sight speed for damage range and sound suppression, a no-brainer deal.

The Tempus Marksman barrel also builds the M13 in the same way, focusing on improving the damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control of the weapon. Again, this comes at a cost to the weapon’s aim down sight speed and movement speed, but you won’t notice this nerf while in-game.

The improvements made to the M16’s damage range and bullet velocity mean we can slap a VLK 3.0x Optic scope on this assault rifle. Without these attachments, your shots at range would be difficult to land, but the M16 is a completely different beast with the right set of attachments.

To ensure we have enough bullets to take down multiple enemies, we’ve gone with the 60 Round Mags. This does negatively impact our mobility yet again, but the trade off is worth it. At very worst, if you find you’re too slow with your M16, you can always switch to your secondary weapon.

Finally, the Commando Foregrip rounds off this build with buffs to recoil stabilisation and aiming stability. Don’t worry about all the hits to the M16’s mobility, this weapon can afford to take a beating in this area.

Those are the attachments you need to build the best M16 loadout in Warzone. You may want to consider bringing either our best Warzone PKM loadout or our top Warzone Kar98k loadout for a longer range option – nailing targets as extreme distances with this setup is tricky and it won’t deal enough damage.
