The Best Warzone 2.0 M4 Setup | A Decent AR

Here is the best M4 setup and loadout for Warzone 2.0. With this loadout, the M4 is a true monster, even in Battle Royale.

We've played a few hours Warzone 2. 0 by now, and it's obvious, a good assault rifle should be in every loadout. Especially because no sniper is one-shot at full plates. And when we think about an assault rifle in a loadout, there's no way to ignore the M4. This AR is especially good at mid-range and will perform in almost any situation. This is why it also is part of the new Warzoen 2.0 Meta. We've built the M4 a little more towards range, so that you're optimally equipped for the battle royal with an SMG as a secondary weapon.

But there are also other awesome ARs in Warzone 2.0: The best Warzone 2.0 Lachmann-556 Loadout

For the muzzle, we use the Harbinger D20, as it's silencing and improves bullet velocity and range. With the Hightower 20" barrel, we mainly improve the range and recoil. The underbarrel FTAC Ripper 56 adds accuracy, but also slows you down a bit. We chose the VLK 4.0 for the optic slot, as it is best suited for mid-range. As always, the optic is a matter of personal preference, so play what suits you best. Lastly, we increase the magazine to 45 rounds. A larger magazine is always a good thing.

WZ 2.0 M4 Loadout: Secondary, Perks & Equipment

Secondary: Vaznev 9k

As secondery, we opted for the Vaznev-9k in this loadout. The M4 covers all ranges except the very close one, which is why we support it with an SMG. It is particularly mobile and fast, which gives you an advantage in houses and buildings. A perfect complement to the M4.

Perks (Base, Bonus & Ultimate)

In Warzone 2. 0 we have to choose a pre-made perk package, which, if we want to play Overkill, can only be Weapon Specialist.

Perk Package Weapon Specialist

Base Perk

Overkill, Strong Arm

Bonus PerkSpotter
Ultimate Perk


Strong Arm lets you see the trajectory of the nades and Scout marks enemy equipment even through walls. Additionally, you can hack enemy C4 or similar. When you get downed, Survivor ensures that the opponent gets pinged. Not the optimal combination, but Activision leaves us no choice.

Equipment (Lethal & Tecticals)


Stun Grenade

Semtex is just a good grenade for any situation. Just stick it to your enemies, no matter if vehicle or infantry, and watch them explode. Stun grenades, on the other hand, are extremely powerful and almost a must have for any loadout. Thrown precisely, they leave your enemies with no chance to escape.

So that's our recommendation for a good Warzone 2. 0 loadout. If you prefer to play a sniper, treat yourself to the best Sniper in Modern Warfare 2.
