The best Warzone XM4 loadout is a subject returning to the forefront of the battle royale following the Season 5 Reloaded update. The mid-season update is the final content drop of the Pacific era and features a wealth of buffs and nerfs.

With the meta expected to change, the XM4 is growing in popularity once again. Armed with a fast rate of fire and impressive mobility, the assault rifle (AR) excels in mid-range engagements and in some cases it can compete at close-quarters.

Before we share intel on the best Warzone XM4 loadout, check out our guides showcasing the best Warzone SMG to use along with information on the next Warzone double XP event.

What is the best Warzone XM4 loadout?

Agency Suppressor
13.5" Task Force
Axial Arms 3x
Field Agent Grip
STANAG 60 Round

To make the most of the XM4's lethal fire rate, there are a number of attachments that increase damage and guarantee recoil remains low. Having tested a range of combinations, we've found this set of five capable of dominating matches. Check out the full attachment list in the table below.

This build will seem familiar to fans of Black Ops Cold War's selection of assault rifles. The improvements to damage drop-off and recoil make the XM4 extremely easy to control in long-distance duels without hindering mobility levels.

Best Warzone XM4 attachments

The XM4 can be a really great gun if you set it up correctly for Warzone. Given how Warzone plays, you'll want to focus on boosting range and reducing recoil/drop-off. Here are the best attachments to use.

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

This set of attachments bolsters its strafe and movement speed drastically. Selecting the 60-round magazine is a no-brainer. It minimises the need for constant reloading giving you more time to remain in the action.

With the Warzone meta shifting to two assault rifles or a sniper and assault rifle combo, the XM4 is a perfect close-range weapon with excellent mobility; negating the need for an SMG.

Best Warzone XM4 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.

Is the XM4 good in Warzone?

Following the Season 5 Reloaded update, the XM4 is a viable option in the final days of Caldera. In my opinion, the high mobility makes all the difference when it comes to outgunning any opponent in mid-range combat and thanks to the lack of damage drop-off, it will feature in the meta in some capacity.
