The best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 loadouts are something you will want to get on top of. Almost every new player launching into Battlefield 2042 will be rocking this assault rifle, as it is the go-to all-rounder. But surprisingly the M5A3 is a solid pick to take to the battlefield, even if it is available from level one. However, once you start to put a bit of time into this AR, what are the attachments you want to be swapping in and out? We've got you covered with our guide to the best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 loadouts.

Best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 Loadouts: Playstyle

A gun is aimed in a snowy environment.

For the best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 loadout, you'll obviously want to play quite aggressively. The M5A3 does especially well in the mid-range, so is great for that initial push up to the objective. The M5A3 has OK performance when we start to consider the long and short range, but a lot of that will be down to your attachments. However, when going long range keep to short first bursts, as the recoil is too much to beam enemies from afar. Remember that switching scopes in particular can make the difference in skirmishes when you move from wider to tighter areas.

The best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 loadouts really depend on the variety of ranges it can support. Luckily with three slots available for your underbarrel, barrel, ammunition, and sight you will be able to pick up the attachments for close, mid, and long range. 

For sights, you are going to want the Fusion Holo, the 8R Holo, and Bravo 3x, for your close, mid, and long range. To back those up we have the Close Combat, Standard Issue/Extended Mag and High Power for your ammunition. For the high power you may want to switch to single fire mode. For your underbarrel we'd go for the LS-1 Laser Sight, Rattlesnake Light Grip, and the ADR Bipod. Lastly for your barrel we'll go for the Shortened Barrel for increased handling at close range, the 6KU Suppressor, and the Extended Barrel. 

Best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 Loadouts: Gadgets And Throwables

To round out your best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 loadouts, we have to pick out the right gadgets and throwables. Since this is an allrounder that will take the fight to the enemy, the pick is pretty simple. In your gadget you are going to want the Recoilless M5, and your throwable a Frag Grenade. It might be a bit basic but grenades are insanely powerful in 2042, and with the amount of vehicles spamming infantry, a rocket launcher isn't going to go to waste.

Now you should be prepared to take on all ranges with the best Battlefield 2042 M5A3 loadouts. If you're looking for a specialist to go along with the M5A3, we'd recommend Battlefield 2042 Irish
