Best Warzone XM4 loadout and attachments

Below is a comprehensive list of the best attachments you can put on the XM4 to get the most out of the weapon, and the levels at which you can unlock the attachments.

Warzone best XM4 loadout: Our XM4 class recommendations and how to unlock the XM4 explained
  • muzzle: Agency Suppressor (unlocks at level 46)
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight (unlocks at level 40)
  • stock: Raider Pad (unlocks at level 54)
  • ammunition: 45 Rnd (unlocked at level 31)
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap (unlocks at level 53)

First of all you want the Agency Suppressor use as muzzle. This has been a popular choice for a while and it works great here. It improves vertical recoil control and increases both bullet velocity and damage range – in addition to noise suppression, of course. It affects the speed of ADS and the general stability of aiming, but not at a high toll.

For the laser of the XM4, we went for the Tiger Team Spotlight. Rather than opting for an optic, this laser attachment improves your overall movement speed with this weapon, making it easier to take down enemies and complementing the entire build in the best possible way.

While the Agency Suppressor is a must, compensating for its flaws is essential. There we use the Raider Pad in front of. The ADS fire and movement speed is then improved and the sprint time to fire is shortened. Hip fire’s accuracy is slightly reduced, but other than that, the mobility improvements are more than welcome.

About ammunition. We choose the 45 Rnd here, since the XM4 can definitely use those extra bullets.

Finally, the Airborne Elastic Wrap a good choice as a rear grip. This increases your ADS speed, your stability and your resistance to flinching. This is at the expense of the ADS, your normal speed while firing and your ‘sprint to fire’ time. But remember, the stock makes up for these flaws perfectly.

Best Warzone XM4 class creation, perks and equipment

As above, here’s the full list of the best equipment items to use with the XM4 in your custom Warzone class.

  • Perk 1: Quick Fix (unlocks at level 42)
  • Perk 2: Overkill (unlocked at level 38)
  • Perk 3: Amped (unlocked at level 1)
  • secondary: Swiss K31 (unlock by getting 2 Headshot kills in 15 different completed matches with a sniper rifle)
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor (unlocked at level 30)
  • lethal: Claymore (unlocked at level 1)

With this XM4 build it won’t be long before you take down enemies, and that’s why Quick Fix using it to start regenerating your health right away at the start of each battle is an ideal combo. If level 42 is too much for you, we recommend EOD, as it will reduce damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire. Use this until you unlock Quick Fix.

As always, we suggest Overkill as the second Perk. Take the Swiss K31 as an ideal supplement. This sniper rifle is very fast and can deal a lot of damage over enormous distances.

If someone sneaks past you and your sniper rifle, Amped is ideal for increasing the speed of your movements.

As extra equipment, the Heartbeat Sensor is very useful for discovering enemies and their locations. Finally, the Claymore is ideal for defending your position against aggressive enemy players.
