Throughout the history of Warzone, the weaponry from Modern Warfare has proven to be some of the strongest. With Season 4 Reloaded on the way, several players have resorted to the M13 assault rifle thanks to its impressive rate of fire and limitless customisation options.

While the most recent dose of weapon balancing has focused on other weapons, the M13 has flown under the radar and is a viable assault rifle (AR) to use on the streets of Caldera, Fortune's Keep and Rebirth Island.

With that said, find the best M13 Warzone loadout in addition to the best attachments in this comprehensive guide!

What Is the Best M13 Warzone Loadout?

Monolithic Suppressor
Tempus Marksman
VLK 3.0x Optic
Commando Foregrip
60 Round Mags

With the right attachment combination, the M13 can easily contend with the likes of the NZ-41 and Automaton which continue to make an impact in the Season 4 meta.

Best M13 Warzone Attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Tempus Marksman
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mags

This combination of attachments improves the M13 in a variety of areas, including an increase in damage range and a much-needed reduction in recoil.

This attachment combination ensures the damage levels remain high even when engaging with a target at longer distances.

Due to the fast rate of fire, equipping the 60-round magazine is essential to maintain a sustained wave of fire without having the need to reload on a regular basis.

The choice of the optic is personal preference but with the T-Pose reticle on the VLK Optic, it is extremely easy to eliminate your target quickly.

Best M13 Warzone Perks and Equipment

With the best attachments equipped onto the M13, it's time to look at the rest of the loadout in order to be prepared for any situation you may encounter in Verdansk or Rebirth Island.


Perk selection can be just as important as attachment selection in Warzone, and after testing a range of different combinations, here are the best Warzone Perks to use with the M13:

  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Ghost (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

This combination has been a staple of Warzone for several seasons because it is so good. EOD provides players with an increase in explosive resistance while Ghost keeps your location hidden from any enemy UAVs flying overhead.

The third and final Perk we selected was Amped. With an increase in weapon swap speed, it's very easy to switch back and forth between the M13 and the secondary weapon as fast as possible, ensuring you are prepared for any kind of in-game scenario.


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

This combination has been a constant in the loadouts of many players for a number of seasons as it's so useful. The Semtex is the ideal tool to deal additional damage to the opposition and it can be stuck to any oncoming vehicles leading to explosive results.
