The M4A1 has been the best assualt rifle since launch. Here's our guide to the best M4A1 warzone loadouts & attachments

18:00, 27 Feb 2020

For almost all of Modern Warfare, the M4A1 assault rifle has been the top weapon for a majority of players. In multiplayer the M4A1 is unrivalled, and with the Grau 5.56 undergoing a nerf in recent Call of Duty news, players have swapped back to the M4A1 in Warzone. Its versatility not only allows it to excel at long-range as an assault rifle should do, but it also dominates up close. However, with so many attachments, many players find it difficult to make the right choice. Well, that’s where we come in. Here's our guide to the best M4A1 Warzone loadout and attachments.

The best M4A1 Warzone Loadout Attachments

For your M4A1 Warzone loadout, you will want to select attachments that increase your aiming stability and range, as it is likely that you will have to beam players from afar. The M4A1 naturally does well up close, so you won't have to optimise this for Warzone, and you're best investing in the long-range attributes. Here's our recommendations.

Here you'll find perfect attachments for Warzone. The Monolithic Suppressor and M16 Grenadier barrel are the two components of any M4A1 loadout that you should always have. The meta does change slightly through updates and the Corvus barrel can also be used, however, the M16 remains the most consistent. Commando Foregrip and Granulated Grip tape help stabilise your M4A1 across long ranges, and the 60 Round Mags helps you slay multiple people without having to dip into cover to reload. This is the perfect M4A1 Warzone loadout.

The best M4A1 Loadout Attachments for Multiplayer

This is where the assault rifle really shines. With the Grau 5.56 rivalling the M4A1 in Warzone, the M4 remains the undisputed king of multiplayer, perfect for pub-stomping and slaying in the CDL. With the following attachments, you’ll be able to outgun all players with ease.

  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

With these attachments, you’ll be able to put your gun up much faster than with other attachments. The No Stock and Stippled Grip Tape are tremendous for this exact mechanic. Although, you will be sacrificing some accuracy, which is why you’ll want to stay up close and personal with most enemies. However, this doesn't mean you won't be able to beam players across the map, because with the range and damage boost that is offered through the barrel and muzzle selection you will have created a beautiful all-round weapon capable of getting kills at all ranges.

Other aspects of your M4A1 Loaouts.

Of course, the attachments aren’t the only aspect of your class set-up. For your secondary, you can either run Overkill or a secondary such as the RPG or the Renetti pistols. At this point, it's more about personal preference and deciding which game-style you’re better at. The M4A1 pairs well with a sniper in Warzone, and on multiplayer you should definitely be running a pistol or combat knife alongside this for your extra bonus speed.

For the Field Upgrades, we recommend using Dead Silence if you’re planning to rush and the Trophy System if you’re playing at long-range. Both upgrades have their advantages, but a rusher doesn’t really need a trophy system and a long-range player won’t be doing much running around. 

Lastly, we have the perks. As of right now, the competitive scene is made up of only a few perks. For slot one, we advise equipping either Double Time or E.O.D. In slot two, Ghost is your best option, unless you're on the CDL playlist where Pointman is your only option. And finally, Battle Hardened is what you should be using for slot three.
