The Warzone best M4A1 loadouts have remained a staple of the battle royale ever since their first introduction. Brought about thanks to Modern Warfare, the M4A1 quickly found a home for itself in WarzoneLining up with the likes of the Krig 6 and Grau 5.56, the M4A1 can shred at both close range and long range. If you fancy taking to the streets of Caldera with this brilliant all-rounder, then we've got the Warzone best M4A1 loadouts and attachments for you. 

Warzone Best M4A1 Loadouts: Warzone

For your Warzone best M4A1 loadouts, 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, much like the Warzone best FFAR loadouts, so you won't have to optimise this for Warzone, and you're best investing in the long-range attributes. Here's our recommendations for the Warzone best M4A1 loadouts.

  • Barrel - M16 Grenadier
  • Muzzle - Monolithic Suppressor 
  • Underbarrel - Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip - Granulated Grip
  • Ammo - 60 Round Map

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 one of the Warzone best M4A1 loadouts.

Warzone Best M4A1 Loadouts: 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.

The best M4A1 Multiplayer Loadout Attachments

  • 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.

Warzone Best M4A1 Loadouts: Perks

Of course, the attachments aren’t the only aspect of your Warzone best M4A1 loadouts. 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 any of the Warzone best snipers, 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.
