The XM4 is one of the most versatile assault rifles in Warzone, especially when it’s equipped with these lethal attachments.

The XM4 is a deadly assault rifle that boasts excellent precision and deals decent range damage, making it a solid pick in Warzone. Previously known as the Commando, this reliable Black Ops rifle is certainly proving to a popular pick amongst Warzone players.

Its gunplay is very similar to that of the M4A1 thanks to its great accuracy, fire rate, and damage. Whether you’re after a new AR in Season 5 that can effortlessly secure you plenty of kills or you’re just tired of using close-range SMGs, then the XM4 is one gun that you’ll want to add to your arsenal.


In order to help you get the most out of the XM4, we’ve outlined the game’s best loadout and the attachments you should be using to help you secure that all-important win. 


Best XM4 loadout for Warzone

The XM4 is a great pick if you’re a fan of the M4A1.


  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip

This XM4 loadout is all about boosting the gun’s effective damage range and accuracy, while also greatly improving its handling when going full-auto. Due to the gun’s lower damage range, the XM4 is best used in close to mid-range firefights. To help with this, we’ve attached the Axial Arms 3x optic. 

This optic will give you just enough magnification to land those ranged headshots, but it will also keep you on target in closer engagements. Next, we’ve utilized the 13.5” Task Force barrel so the XM4 can deal a lethal amount of damage at close range. The increased damage, range, and bullet velocity will help bump up your DPS in those situations where you need to hit an enemy at a distance as well.

To further increase this AR’s mobility and effective damage range, we added the Agency Suppressor. Not only does this noise-canceling muzzle increase the XM4’s bullet velocity, but it also increases the gun’s ADS speed and damage range. Combine this with the Field Agent Grip for better recoil control, and you have a recipe for success. 

Rounding things off at the bottom of the list is the STANAG 60 Rnd attachment. This magazine will give you all the ammunition needed to melt multiple foes, especially at long-range where it’s essential that you don’t run out of ammo.


Best XM4 setup (Perks & equipment)

This XM4 class is best paired with a close-range meta SMG.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: MAC-10
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

Similar to many Warzone setups, this loadout also utilizes E.O.D, Amped, and Overkill. E.O.D greatly reduces the damage taken from non-killstreak explosives and fire, which in a game like Warzone, is a priceless addition to your setup. Amped allows you to switch between weapons faster, which is useful if you do run out of bullets mid-fight.

Lastly, Overkill allows you to equip the MAC-10 as your secondary. Seeing as this XM4 loadout mainly prioritizes ranged effectiveness, having a weapon like the MAC-10 will allow you to dominate in close-quarter gunfights and push any weakened opponents.

To round off this loadout, we’ve decided to use the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor in the lethal and tactical slots. The semtex is arguably the best lethal in Warzone due to it’s efficiency in not only damaging enemies, but also finishing off downed enemies quickly.


Similarly, the heartbeat sensor gives you the ability to track down non-ghosted enemies and flush out those pesky campers.

Alternative to the XM4 loadout

The Krig 6 boasts some of the easiest to control recoil in Warzone Season 6.

If you’re looking for an alternative to the XM4, then consider using this Krig 6 loadout. While the fire rate might be slower than the XM4, the recoil control and ranged effectiveness is some of the best in Warzone.

Another option is the Cold War AK-47 which has surged in popularity recently, becoming the most picked AR in the current meta. Rather than just being built for long-range, the AK-47 can be setup as a sniper support class to eliminate foes at close range, making it incredibly versatile.
