The M4 has already emerged as one of the most reliable weapons in Modern Warfare 2 if you have a good setup for it. This article will provide you with that perfect Modern Warfare 2 best M4 loadout including the best attachments and class setup recommendations to fully round out your gear.
As one of the easiest to pick up weapons in Modern Warfare 2, the M4 packs quite a punch and is able to hold its own at long range and up close. However, some issues lie with its recoil and hip fire accuracy, which prevent it from being stellar out of the box.
But, this guide will solve that with our best Modern Warfare 2 M4 loadout. Read on for our attachment suggestions, perks to use, lethals and tacticals to equip, and of course, that all-important field upgrade.
Modern Warfare 2 M4 best loadout
When it comes to building your weapon, the M4 is a reliable and trusty assault rifle so you are going to want to pick attachments that keep it on target, without providing many downsides. Our best M4 loadout for Modern Warfare 2 is:
- Receiver: M4
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Stock: Demo Fade Pro Stock
- Rear Grip: XTEN Grip
- Laser: 4MW Laser Box
- Barrel: Tempus Hightower 20″ Barrel
- Muzzle: None
- Underbarrel: None
- Ammunition: None
- Magazine: None
Right now the M4’s best attachments focus on boosting the recoil control which can be a bit unwieldy without those measures in place. Firstly, the core to this loadout for the M4 is the Tempus Hightower 20″ Barrel which provides significant boosts to bullet velocity, damage range, recoil control, and hip fire accuracy. All of these stat increases turn the M4 into an extremely strong AR.
The 4MW Laser Box is our second attachment which boosts your hip fire accuracy and recoil control, allowing you to stay agile and react to any enemies. This makes hip fire with the weapon really strong when up close. It also negates the lost hip recoil control and hip fire accuracy from the barrel choice.
You will also want an optic with the M4 as the combination of the gun’s recoil and the hard-to-use iron sights are not fun to try and deal with. So, you just want to go for the basic Cronen Mini Red Dot.
Next, we recommend the Demo Fade Pro Stock which will provide some much-needed boosts to sprint speed and aim walking speed. This is vital for the weapon in your loadout as you want to be able to jump shot and quickly react to surprises and enemies that pop out of cover or are hiding in a corner. Finally, the XTEN Grip will provide you with some light boosts to sprint to fire speed and aim down sight speed. It does reduce your recoil control, but only by a smidge so it’s not noticeable.
Modern Warfare 2 M4 best loadout secondary weapon
Right now in the beta, the best secondary weapon for the Modern Warfare 2 M4 loadout is the X12.
This is a simple pistol that excels at what it is meant to do, be a backup. There isn’t much choice right now but the X12 is better than the other pistol available in the beta which is automatic.
Modern Warfare 2 M4 best loadout perks and equipment
When you are choosing your perks, you want to include base, bonus, and ultimate perks that really synergise well with the attachments and loadout you have built for your gun. That is why for base perks we recommend Double Time to boost your run and gun capabilities with the M4 and E.O.D.
E.O.D is particularly good in the beta right now as explosives deal a lot of flinch damage and damage generally, so this will help keep you on target when grenades come down your sightline. For the bonus perk equip Fast Hands to boost the reload speed of the weapon which is a little too long for our liking currently. This will keep your gun up more often and avoid you being caught off guard.
Finally, for the ultimate perk, you are going to want Ghost which is just as strong as it has always been. Even if you have to wait until later in the match to get the buff.
For your tactical, equip the stun grenade to disorient your enemies and catch them off guard either up close or from afar and the Semtex to have a trust grenade in your back pocket. Finally, we recommend you run the Battle Rage field upgrade which will enhance your sprint even further for a limited time and keep your health regenerating and you surviving while fighting.
And there you have our Modern Warfare 2 best M4 loadout with the best attachments and class set-up choices. With this loadout, you should be more than ready to go on some extended kill sprees and call in some of the higher killstreaks on offer in Modern Warfare 2.
