The Black Ops Cold War XM4 is a powerhouse Warzone assault rifle. The XM4 is a laser with almost no recoil, making it the perfect choice for medium to long-range fights. Let’s take a look at the class setup and attachments you need to make the best XM4 loadout in Warzone.
Best XM4 loadout in Warzone
These are the best attachments for the XM4 in Warzone:
- Muzzle: Agency suppressor
- Barrel: 13.5″ Task force
- Optic: Axial arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field agent grip
- Magazine: STANAG 60-round magazine
The XM4 is one of the most-used Warzone weapons even with all the powerful Vanguard weapons dominating the meta. That’s because there are few weapons as accurate as the XM4 in Warzone.
The XM4 assault rifle also has a fast rate of fire which helps to lower the gun’s TTK. Fast-firing, low-recoil weapons are always going to be prized in Call of Duty games.
Each attachment for the best XM4 Warzone loadout was specifically chosen to enhance its long-range capabilities.
The agency suppressor is by far the most popular muzzle device for assault rifles. It extends effective damage range and improves bullet velocity. This suppressor helps the best XM4 class feel more like a hitscan weapon at longer ranges.
The 13.5” task force is the best barrel for long-range builds because it improves recoil, bullet velocity, and damage range. Again, we are going for attachments that enhance our lethality at range.
The axial arms 3x optic has become the overwhelming favorite for Cold War assault rifles in Warzone. The optic has one of the best reticules in the game and provides enough magnification to kill players at a distance.
Next, equip the field agent grip to improve horizontal and vertical recoil. We are sacrificing some mobility by attaching the field agent grip, but it’s a worthy trade for the buff to accuracy.
Finally, complete the XM4 loadout with the STANAG 60-round magazine. The STANAG 60-round magazine gives a 100% boost to magazine capacity, and because it makes the XM4 heavier, it also slightly lowers recoil.
This XM4 Warzone loadout has a few drawbacks to be aware of before you take the gun into the Warzone. The XM4 has a short damage range and slow bullet velocity. We do our best to improve the XM4’s damage range and bullet velocity with the agency suppressor and 13.5” task force barrel.
This XM4 loadout also has a slow sprint-to-fire time, compounded by some of the attachments we equip. This will cause the XM4 build to struggle at reacting to close-range engagements.
Is this XM4 loadout the best AR in Warzone?
On paper, the XM4 is outclassed by meta Vanguard weapons like the Automaton and Cooper Carbine that have better DPS and a faster TTK. However, the XM4’s low recoil makes it perform better in-game than on paper. You might be surprised at how lethal the XM4 build is in the Warzone.
The XM4 has continued to be a popular weapon in Warzone even with the addition of the Vanguard weapons because it’s one of the easiest weapons to use. Low recoil, high fire rate weapons are more forgiving and great for new players.
We recommend using Overkill and Amped with the best XM4 loadout. Overkill equips a second primary weapon, and Amped speeds up weapon swap time. Bring a close-range primary weapon so that you won’t have to use the XM4 in close quarters where it is weakest.
Countless professional Warzone players use the XM4 to dominate in Warzone including ScummN, Loochy, and KayzahR.
Best weapons to pair with the XM4 loadout
The XM4 is most effective when paired with a high-mobility, close-range option. The MP-40 and Vanguard PPSh-41 are currently two of the most popular guns for close quarters. Check out our best MP-40 loadout and best PPSh-41 loadout guides to learn how to build close-range weapons.
The MP-40 is also viable at medium range, so you could use it as your primary weapon and swap to the XM4 to kill players at long range.
Use the XM4 as your primary with the PPSh-41, but swap to the PPSh-41 when your enemy is within 15 meters.
