Best KG M40 Warzone attachments
This particular build focuses on improving the accuracy and range of the KG M40. Additional mobility is useful but the ability to outgun an opponent from any distance is far more important.
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Krausnick 720mm Shrouded
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: VDD 22G Padded
- Underbarrel: M1940 Strife Angled
- Magazine: .30-06 60 Round Drums
- Ammunition: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
- Perk 1: Tight Grip

Compared to other Vanguard assault rifles, the KG M40 is extremely powerful in those competitive mid-range engagements. The combination of MX Silencer and M1930 Strife Angled underbarrel provides improvements to recoil levels.
As for the rest of the loadout, the huge magazine enables you to score multiple kills without the need to reload. Overall, this build is incredibly strong and is highly likely to feature in the Season 4 meta.

Best KG M40 Warzone perks and equipment
Once you've equipped the best KG M40 attachments, taking time to prioritise Perk and Equipment selection is just as important as selecting the best barrel and muzzle combination. Here are the best Perks and Equipment to use alongside the LMG.
- Cold-Blooded (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Combat Scout (Perk 3)
This particular Perk combination has cemented itself within the Warzone meta. Cold-Blooded counters any players using Combat Scout, preventing the orange glow from appearing while Overkill enables you to select two primary weapons in the same loadout. We recommend pairing the KG M40 with an MP40 for maximum versatility.
Last and by no means least is Combat Scout. With opponents difficult to spot in amongst the greenery of Caldera, land your shots to highlight the target with an orange glow to spot them with ease.
- Throwing Knife (Lethal)
- Stun Grenade (Tactical)
The days of a Heartbeat Sensor and Semtex dominating Warzone are long gone! To guarantee a quick kill, the Throwing Knife is the perfect tool for the job alongside the Stun Grenade which slows the movement of the opposition, making them easy pickings for the KG M40.
Is the KG M40 good in Warzone?
After spending some time mastering the KG M40, it's a strong assault rifle but compared to the likes of the STG 44 and Automaton, it's tricky to see where the gun will slot into the ever-changing metagame. For those looking for an alternative to the meta, I highly recommend giving the KG M40 a try.
