Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has tons of guns to choose from, and each gun can have a variety of loadouts, so deciding what weapon to choose can be a daunting task. So we’ve prepared this handy all-rounder guide for the M4A1, one of the most versatile weapons in the game. This loadout should be able to help you no matter what the situation or your preferred playstyle is.
The M4A1 is one of the best guns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It is very versatile and is available from the start. It’s also got an easy recoil and handles quite well which makes it a good weapon to main. With a huge number of attachments available, here’s one of the best loadouts for this rifle.
So this loadout is all about having the most all-rounded performance from this rifle.
Here’s the 5 attachments that you need to put on this rifle.
- Barrel: Use the Stock M16 Grenadier Barrel
- Optic: Operator Reflex Sight
- Stock: Singuard Arms Invader
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape
This weapon loadout is all about having good power, good range, and decent recoil reduction. The only thing that suffers here is mobility but that’s fine since you’re getting much better weapon handling in return.
Once you’ve equipped these attachments, you’ll want to pick a secondary gun. Here I would suggest using the 1911 handgun which will help you get out of some tight spots when you need to reload.
Onwards we go to perks. Here you’ll want to use EOD for Perk 1. This perk will increase your resistance to non killstreak explosives which means that youll be able to stay alive for longer and take a bit more damage on the battlefield.
The next perk you’ll want is Hardline in Perk 2. This will reduce the cost of killstreaks by 1. This means that you’ll be able to get killstreaks faster.
The final perk you’ll want is Battle Hardened in Perk 3. This increases your resistance to flashbangs, stun grenades and EMPs, which could be the difference between surviving or dying.
All of these perks together will allow you to be a bit more aggressive since you’ll take less explosive damage, be less affected by non-lethal equipment and also get killstreaks faster.
For your lethal equipment, you can use a frag grenade. You can also use Molotov Cocktail or Semtex, it just depends on how you tend to utilize your utility.
For non-lethal you can use either the flashbang or the stun grenade. This will help you when you’re pushing and when you need to gain a slight advantage going into combat situations.
Now let’s see what killstreaks you should be using with this build.
The first one you’ll want to set is Cruise Missile. Thanks to your perk, you’ll get this at 4 kills so you’ll be able to deal quite a lot of damage, especially if they’re close together.
The next one you’ll want to set is a VTOL Jet. You’ll get this at 7 kills and this is such a great killstreak to have since it will assist you and your team so much.
The final kill streak is White Phosphorus which you’ll get at 9 kills. This is also extremely powerful and damages enemies all over the map.
Now, if you don’t have White Phosphorus unlocked you can use the UAV, chopper gunner or whichever one you feel will help you get an advantage.
And finally for your field upgrade, pick Dead Silence.
This will silence your footsteps and increase movement speed making you an absolute deadly force to be reckoned with.
This build is all about giving heavy damage and being versatile.
If you’re in a match with a lot of enemy killstreaks like Choppers and Jets, you can swap the 1911 for an RPG to damage those. But mainly, you should be playing aggressively with a lot of movement and off-angle peeks.
With a little bit of time and some practice, you’ll be an unstoppable monster with the M4A1. Now, this is just one of the builds with this weapon and there are so many more ways to use this gun.
