The best M4A1 loadout in Warzone

The M4A1 is the first assault rifle players have access to if they own Modern Warfare - find out how this weapon stacks up in Warzone

While the obvious answer to this question is that the best M4A1 loadout in Warzone is largely subjective, we’re pretty certain that the M4 class and setup we’ve got is the best build for the popular AR. This weapon is great for newcomers as it features a modest amount of recoil alongside an impressive time-to-kill speed.

The best M4A1 loadout has become a viable option in Warzone, offering everything you need in the battle royale game: accuracy, range, a fast rate of fire, and the potential to strap on a 60-round magazine. Given the number of players on Caldera, you’ll want to equip yourself with as many bullets as you can.

Of course if you’re new to Warzone then we’re afraid that you’ll need to do a lot of grinding to earn all of the attachments that really make this rifle so powerful. The M4A1 setup for Warzone we’ve got below offers decent damage per second over mid to long-range fights, without making the gun unwieldy in close-up gun battles.

The best Call of Duty Warzone M4A1 loadout is:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 60 Round Mags
  • VLK 3.0x Optic

The Monolithic Suppressor plays a big part in enhancing this assault rifle by improving the damage range and providing sound suppression. There’s a slight nerf to the weapon’s aim down sight speed, but we’ll happily sacrifice this stat to keep off the minimap when firing the M4A1.

You can take the M4A1 further by equipping the Stock M16 Grenadier which provides a big upgrade to the AR’s damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control. To improve the weapon’s recoil stabilisation, we’ve gone for the Commando Foregrip which also negatively impacts the M4A1’s mobility.

The 60 Round Mags hurts the weapon’s mobility once again, but we’re rewarded with large magazines which should save you a reload during intense fights. Finally, the VLK 3.0x Optic is the perfect scope for the customised M4A1 now that its recoil control and accuracy stats have been upgraded significantly.
