The M4 assault rifle (AR) is a staple of the Call of Duty franchise. Regularly appearing in the Modern Warfare series, the rifle features a fast rate of fire alongside low levels of recoil. These features mean it often features in the early stages of a new game as players attempt to determine the meta.

With the launch of Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, many are waiting for Infinity Ward to share more information on multiplayer and what it has to offer. While the developer remains silent, leaks have found intel on Perks, Killstreaks, and Field Upgrades.

In addition to those features, a Modern Warfare 2 guns list has emerged. It reveals a number of new arrivals to the weapon arsenal alongside fan-favourite guns. With that said, is the M4 in Modern Warfare 2? Here's everything we know about the gun appearing in 2022's title.

M4 Call of Duty History

For fans of the Modern Warfare series, this isn't the first time the AR has appeared in the series. Variations of the rifle appear in Call of Duty 4, 2009's Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, and 2019's Modern Warfare.

In all of the above games, the rifle features a fast rate of fire and minimal recoil. Its qualities lend themselves to a wealth of customisation options to suit all styles of play.


Is The M4 In The Modern Warfare 2 Beta?

The beta will act as the first opportunity for players to get their hands on Modern Warfare 2. Like previous betas, players can use a small selection of weapons likely appearing in the final build of the game.

Considering the history of the M4 in the Modern Warfare series, there's a high chance of the AR featuring in the beta rumoured to take place in the middle of September.

Typically, the M4 is one of the very first weapons you unlock and with plenty of attachments expected to appear, you will have the ability to gear it to suit your preferred style of play.

The Modern Warfare 2 Gunsmith features weapon tuning, enabling deeper levels of customisation and allowing players to fine-tune their selection to maximise performance.
