Attachment glitch buffs XM4 and AK47 in CoD: Warzone

Warzone players have discovered that a specific attachment is glitched for the XM4 and AK-47 from Cold War, giving players fast aim down sight times.

Warzone Ember Sighting Point Bug

A new glitch in Call of Duty: Warzone allows players to aim down sights faster, giving a decent advantage in gunfights.

The Black Ops Cold War x Warzone integration has brought some interesting bugs to the game, with the most frustrating one in the form of weapon attachments not actually doing what they are supposed to do, as discovered by YouTuber JGOD.

Since the beginning of Season 2, Raven has mostly fixed these issues, but still, it appears that certain attachments still have secret functions, or do the opposite of what they are supposed to do in general.

A new faulty, or glitched attachment has recently been brought to light via a Reddit post by user jelleu, who points out that the Black Ops Cold War “Ember Sighting Point” laser allows players to aim down sights faster with the XM4.

This is quite an interesting find, considering the actual stat of the attachment says it decreases aim down sight speed, but from the video above, you can clearly see it actually does the opposite.

According to commenter KcMitchell, this works on both the XM4 and the Cold War AK47 only. However, this is a huge stat boost to both weapons, making them highly viable in combat. You can watch a side-by-side comparison in the video below, uploaded by the original Reddit poster.

The difference is quite drastic, especially when you consider how fast engagements are in Warzone. With even a small edge against opponents, we’re sure players will find great loadouts to use with these weapons.

Specifically, the Cold War AK-47 has always struggled to find a solid place in Warzone’s meta, mostly due to its long aim-down sight time and sluggish handling. We’re willing to bet that this new bug will make the weapon more viable in combat in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Get out there and try this for yourself. We’ll update if we hear any word from Raven about fixing this attachment.

This guide will go over what this error is and how you can get around it.

Disable In-Game Overlay & Nvidia Highlights

There have been various causes for this error in Warzone. Aside from the game crashing while loading a map, this can also occur when the camera returns to the player after they get killed.

Many players have reported this problem happening while they try to play the game with both In-Game Overlay and Nvidia highlights enabled at the same time, so we recommend disabling them both.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open up GeForce Experience while the game is turned off
  2. Go to the General tab and disable In-Game Overlay
  3. Save and close Nvidia Experience
  4. Launch Modern Warfare
  5. Go to Options > Graphics> Nvidia Highlights 
  6. Disable Nvidia highlights and restart the game

Update your GPU drivers

If you’re still encountering Dev Error 6178 then your GPU driver might need updating. This is because the in-game graphics can only be handled with the latest version of the GPU driver.

Here’s how you can update it:

  1. Open up Device Manager
  2. Scroll down and select Display Adapters
  3. Click on the GPU that you want to update select Update Driver .
  4. Select Search Automatically for updated driver software to install the new driver
  5. Launch the game to see if it worked.

Run the game as Administrator

The problem might be that the game requires certain permissions that you can only grant as the admin. For this reason, you can try launching the game as an Administrator and see if that fixes things.

This is a fairly simple process:

  1. Right-click on Modern Warfare
  2. Select Run as Administrator
  3. Click yes to grant permissions
  4. Wait for the game to launch and see if you encounter the error.

Increase the graphics settings

You can get this done fairly quickly:

  1. Launch Modern Warfare
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Select Graphics
  4. Change the texture resolution to Normal in Details & Textures

Best XM4 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 5

The XM4 is a superb, ranged killer in Warzone Season 5. Here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone XM4 loadout.

Published

Best Warzone XM4 loadout

The XM4 is an excellent Assault Rifle in CoD: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded, so here is the best loadout class to make the most of this meta gun.

The XM4 Assault Rifle, modeled after the original Black Ops’ Commando, is a medium-range weapon perfect for accompanying a long-range Sniper Rifle.

When sniping, you need something that can deal with targets up close and can follow up on armor breaks at a medium distance. The XM4 is an extremely powerful choice to run as your ‘pocket weapon’ if you’re looking for something to complement your favorite long-range weapon.

With Warzone Season 5 Reloaded bringing various buffs and nerfs to the game, most notable for the previously dominant Krig 6, the XM4 was left untouched, allowing it to rise in the meta. So, here are the attachments and perks to make the best Warzone XM4 loadout class to maximize the potential of this Assault Rifle in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone XM4 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Microflex LED or Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round

To make sure the best Warzone XM4 loadout is laser-accurate, we’re adding the Field Agent Grip. With this attachment, the XM4 will be as accurate as it needs to be at close-medium ranges. With some recoil control, you’ll also be able to beam enemies at a distance too.

The 13.5″ Task Force barrel received a significant buff in the Season 5 update, giving it majorly improved bullet velocity, range, and recoil control at the cost of some mobility. You should add the Agency Suppressor to the best Warzone XM4 loadout for even more velocity, which increases the weapon’s damage range while keeping you off the minimap.

We’re going with the STANAG 60 Round to ensure we have enough ammo to take down multiple enemies when using the best Warzone XM4 loadout. Finally, the XM4’s iron sights are still quite obtrusive, so you’ll want to use the Microflex LED or even the Axial Arms 3x if you’re looking for more range.

The XM4’s damage will drop off at a distance compared to some of the top Assault Rifles, so you should pair the best Warzone XM4 loadout with a long-range weapon such as the Swiss K31 or Kar98k.

Best perks to use with Warzone XM4 class

best perks warzone xm4 loadout class
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Tracker

E.O.D will allow you to withstand Semtex, Grenades, and a large quantity of any other serious explosive throwables. With so many players using Semtex or C4 to gain the upper hand in a fight, you’ll need E.O.D if you have any hope of surviving.

Overkill will allow you to get two primary weapons from your loadout. Then you can take the Ghost Perk from your next one, hiding you from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

While running both a Sniper Rifle and an Assault Rifle, you want to be able to swap between them quickly. Whether getting ambushed up close or following up on a snipe, the Amped Perk will allow you to switch weapons almost instantly.

Most recent XM4 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

There have not been any recent changes to the XM4 Assault Rifle in the Call of Duty battle royale, but we will be sure to update this page with any new ones when they go live.

How to unlock the XM4

best warzone xm4 loadout

To unlock the XM4 Assault Rifle for the best Warzone XM4 loadout, you’ll have to make sure you reach Level 4 in Warzone or Black Ops Cold War.

This is very easy and will be accomplished within a game or two. The main takeaway is it gets you to level up the XM4 quicker and get your attachments sooner.

Best alternatives

Following the Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update, the best Warzone XM4 loadout is still a great weapon to use alongside a Sniper Rifle. This puts it on par with the RAM-7 and Cold War’s AK-47. However, if you want something for closer ranges, then the LC10 and PPSH are excellent choices.

If you’re looking for more weapons to try out, check out some of this season’s best weapon loadouts below.
