Warzone 2: Best M4 Loadout, Class, Perk & Secondary

After playing with the weapon for over 100 hours, here is my M4 Loadout recommendation in COD Warzone 2.0.

M4 is one of the best assault rifles available in COD Warzone 2.0. Whether it’s short-range or long-range, assault rifles are a must-carry for players. M4 is the assault rifle that fulfills all your needs. With less recoil, a high fire rate, and a decent range, the M4 is the best gun in almost every fight. However, to make it more impactful, you will need to have the best loadout & attachments for M4. That’s why we are here to tell you about the best M4 loadout in COD Warzone 2.0.

Key Takeaways
  • M4 is one of the best early-game guns in COD Warzone 2.0.
  • M4 is a very decent and balanced Assault Rifle, which can be further improved using the right attachments and loadout.
  • The best perks for this loadout are Scavenger, Strong Arm, Fast Hands, and High Alert.
  • The secondary weapons that I suggest are Expedite 12 for short-range weapons or the Victus XMR for long-range combat.

Why Trust Us: Huzaifa has played Warzone 2 for more than 100 hours on Steam, experiencing every mechanic and element the title has to offer.

Best M4 Loadout in Warzone 2

Here are the best attachments you can get for M4 in COD Warzone 2.0:

  • Barrel: Hightower 20” Barrel
  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Underbarrel: FTac Ripper 56
  • Stock: Corio Precio Factory
  • Magazine: 60-Round Mag

  • Easy to handle
  • Recoil Control
  • Improved Muzzle Velocity
  • Reduced hip fire bullet spread


  • Not fastest TTK
  • Effectiveness decreases with range


The Hightower 20” Barrel provides increased Bullet Velocity, Damage Range, and Recoil Control. Combining the M4 with the Harbinger D20 provides great stability along with Sound Suppression. With Bullet Velocity and Damage Range increased more, the mid and long-range fight becomes much more advantageous. 

You get increased Bullet Velocity with 5.56 High Velocity; however, it decreases your damage range. The FTAC Ripper 56 is a great attachment to reduce recoil and improve stability.

However, it does that at the cost of decreased Aim Down Sight Speed and Walking Speed. As for the Magazine, I suggest the 60 rounds, as M4 will require more bullets in long-range fights. 

Best Perk Package For M4

M4 is a great weapon; however, to utilize it to its full potential, we will need the Best Perk Package available for M4. As such, we’ll need more ammo and mobility. That is provided by the Commando Perk Package, which is the best Perk Package you can get for an M4 loadout in Warzone 2.0.

You will need a lot of ammo when you use 60 60-round magazine on M4 while emptying them on your opponents. The Scavenger perk gives you ammo and also an extra plate from the enemies you killed. That way, you will never have to worry about finding ammo and wasting your time looting.

With Strong Arm, you will be able to throw tactical or lethal equipment far away and see their area of effect. It is very convenient when it comes to fighting a team.

Even a second matters in COD Warzone 2.0, as you will be up against teams. The small interval while switching weapons can often lead to deaths. That’s why Fast Hands is there to save the day and provide you the flexibility you need for close-range fights.

Best Secondary Weapon

I have built this M4 for most mid and long-range. So, the best option is to use the best close-range weapon. However, it is up to you to decide the same. With that in mind, we have listed the best Secondary Weapon for M4 in COD Warzone 2.0 below:

Short-Range Option – Expedite 12

Expedite 12 in COD Warzone 2.0

For a quick kill and a lot of damage, you can use Expedite 12, as it is one of the best shotguns for close-range fights. However, if you are not a fan of shotguns, you can alternatively use FSS Hurricane as an SMG and get the most out of it.

As for the attachments for Expedite 12, these are the ones that I have considered best.

  • Muzzle: Bryson Choke
  • Stock: Resonance Stock Collapsed
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Bolt: Expedite L-Bolt
  • Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser

These are the best attachments that will allow you to dominate your opponent in close-range fights.

Long-Range Option – Victus XMR

Victus XMR in COD Warzone 2.0

Why use long-range when you can use M4? Well, M4 doesn’t do a lot of damage with a single bullet. Moreover, it’s sometimes difficult to spray your opponent when they are too far away. Victus XMR, which is one of the best Snipers, allows you to deal a lot of damage in a single shot. However, it doesn’t kill one-shot. Therefore, you will have to get the second shot, and if you can’t, you always have the option to spray using M4.

As the opponent’s health will be low because of the heavy damage through the sniper, you can get him down through a few shots of M4.

To use Victus XMR at its full potential, these are the best attachments you should use.

  • Muzzle: Bruen Counter-Ops
  • Barrel: Mack 8 33.5 Super
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

Best Tactical & Lethal Equipment

Finally, we will discuss the best Tactical & Lethal Equipment you will need with the Best M4 Loadout in COD: Warzone 2.0 to draw the most out of the perks. There are some choices that’ll give you an advantage over your opponents.

Shock Stick

Now, Shock Stick allows you to surprise your enemies by electrocuting them. Moreover, it even destroys other equipment. Not only that, you can even disrupt an enemy’s vehicle, which makes a great surprise for them.

Frag Grenade

The most basic yet the most powerful one. When pairing it with Strong Hand perks, you can easily outdo a squad with some tactics and strategy. Grenade alone is capable of downing a squad or damaging vehicles.
