Best Warzone MX Guardian attachments

The Warzone gunsmith contains an extensive range of attachments capable of transforming the MX Guardian to suit your style of play perfectly. With guaranteeing a fast time to kill the aim of the game, attachments that enhance damage and reaction times will prove popular in Season 4 Reloaded. Here's the strongest combination:

  • Barrel: MX-G Mobile
  • Laser: Schlager ULQ-66 Laser
  • Stock: MX DCP-0
  • Rear Grip: XRK Rush
  • Magazine: MX Pro Mag

For enhancements to hip-fire accuracy and damage range, the MX-G Mobile barrel is the best one to use. Paired with the Schlager ULQ-66 Laser, it's very easy to spray down any opponents that stand in your crosshair.

For maximum mobility, the combination of the MX DCP-0 stock and the XRK Rush rear grip ensures you have the fastest sprint-to-fire speed to react to anyone that suddenly moves into view.

Lastly, the MX Pro Mag gives you 15 bullets in the magazine which is ideal for breaking armour and downing enemies as fast as possible.

Best Warzone MX Guardian perks and equipment

Once the best MX Guardian attachments are ready for action, selecting the right perk package and equipment is the next step to building the best loadout. Here are our recommendations.


  • Base: Overkill
  • Base: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate: High Alert

Overkill gives you the ability to use two primary weapons in the same loadout. Alongside the MX Guardian, we recommend the Lachmann 556 assault rifle for some additional mid-range and long-distance firepower.

In addition to Overkill, High Alert is the star of the show thanks to the increased awareness it provides. When an opponent has found your location, your vision will pulse.


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke grenade

It's hard to go wrong with the combination of a Semtex and a Smoke grenade. Semtex is excellent for dealing some additional damage while Smoke has plenty of uses. Use it as a form of improvised cover when rotating or as a quick distraction to get out of danger.

Is the MX Guardian good in Warzone?
