Best XM4 Warzone Perks and Equipment

Once you've set up your XM4 using the attachments above you will want to consider a deadly combination of Perks and Equipment in order to excel on Caldera and Rebirth Island. Here are our recommendations.


  • Semtex (Lethal)
  • Stim (Tactical)

Selecting grenades is personal preference but on this occasion, we have selected the Semtex/Stim combination. Use the stun grenade to slow down the movement of an opponent and follow it up with a Semtex to deal the killer blow.


  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Combat Scout (Perk 3)

EOD increases resistance to explosives while Overkill enables you to run two primary weapons. The third and final Perk is Combat Scout. This Perk highlights a target once your shots have landed, making them very easy to spot during a match.
