This is our best M4A1 Assault Rifle loadout to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6, complete with best Perks and attachments.

Although a Modern Warfare weapon, the M4A1 Assault Rifle is still a great choice for players to utilize in the popular Call of Duty battle royale game. So here is how to make the best Warzone M4A1 loadout in Season 6.

The M4A1, or the M4 for short, is the signature Assault Rifle for the Call of Duty franchise. Nearly all modern FPS’s have an iteration of the M4A1, making it one of the most iconic weapons of all time.

When Warzone originally dropped, players flocked to the dependable and consistent rifle but as the seasons went on, buffs and nerfs gravitated players towards new meta ARs – with Season 6 now favoring Cold War’s AK-47.

Still, this Modern Warfare Assault Rifle is still a mighty weapon that players can use to dominate their enemies on Verdansk ’84 or Rebirth Island, so here are the attachments and Perks you should use to make the best Warzone M4A1 loadout in Season 6.

Best Warzone M4A1 loadout

Best Warzone M4A1 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

To silence the M4A1, we’ve slapped the Monolithic Suppressor on the best Warzone M4A1 loadout to hide our shots on the map and increase our damage range. The Stock M16 Grenadier barrel gives the M4 a massive damage and range boost as well.

The VLK 3.0x optic is the right amount of zoom to ensure the M4 is good in any position or distance. The Commando Foregrip gets a real handle on the weapon’s recoil, whilst the 60 Round Mags give the best Warzone M4A1 loadout plenty of ammo to mow down multiple enemies.

Best Perks for Warzone M4A1 class

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

E.O.D is an easy one as you can be aggressive with the best Warzone M4A1 loadout given how quickly it can kill, and it just stops you from burning in Thermite or being blown up by Semtex or Grenades.

Overkill is a standard perk as we want to pair the M4A1 with someone rapid like the OTs 9, then pick up Ghost later.

Finally, Combat Scout, one of the latest Perks to arrive in Warzone, is almost a must as it highlights enemies through walls and live pings them for your team.

How to unlock the M4A1 in Warzone

There’s no messing around with the best Warzone M4A1 loadout as the all-around beast is available from the second you boot up Warzone.

Get it equipped and start mowing your way through the Weapon Levels to unlock the best attachments to make the best Warzone M4A1 loadout.

Best alternatives to Warzone’s M4A1

In terms of alternatives, the XM4 remains one of Season 6’s beasts, but the MAC-10 still represents a solid close-range SMG melter, and the Kar98k and Swiss continue to battle for long-range supremacy.

Warzone Pacific dev responds to concerns over Caldera loadout drop changes

One of the Warzone Pacific developers has responded to player complaints about the loadout drop changes in Caldera.

Published

on

Warzone Pacific’s new Caldera map brought some major changes to player loadout drops which have proved controversial, and now one of the developers has explained how the new system will work.

There is a ton of anticipation for Vanguard Season 1 and Warzone Pacific. The developers have made some major changes to player loadout drops ahead of the new Caldera map’s launch.

Stopping Power Rounds have been completely removed from the game as a Field Upgrade and the Dead Silence Field Upgrade is receiving a considerable nerf. Players are also unable to call in a loadout drop right away.

Now, one of the Warzone Pacific devs has explained these changes.

One of the changes is that Warzone players won’t be able to call in a loadout drop from a Buy Station prior to the loadout drop event falling across the map. This led to criticism from many players including FaZe star Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson.

Swagg described the loadout changes as “wack” before elaborating that there’s no point in leveling up guns if you can barely use them. “If it’s like the flashback event then the loadout event didn’t happen until the 3rd circle,” he stated.

This led to a response from Warzone creative designer, Ted Timmins, who is one of the developers behind the Pacific. He explained that players will be able to access loadouts at the end of the first circle.

“Operation: Flashback was just the test bed for the functionality that proved successful – but to your point, it needed to still be early enough in the gameplay loop to allow for improved strategy and planning,” Timmins explained.

The reasoning behind this decision was to encourage players to plan their strategies better during the early stages of a match. Despite this, many players in the replies were still disappointed in these new limitations.

“This was the worst part of operation flashback,” replied one user. “I hope this change gets reverted back quickly once people realize it’s not an innovation, it’s a limitation.”

We don’t know yet if the developers will revert these changes in response to player complaints. At the time of writing, it seems that the loadout drop limitations in Caldera are here to stay.

Warzone Pacific update brings highly-requested Gas Mask fix

Warzone’s Gas Masks have long been a source of frustration to players, but the Pacific update is finally bringing a highly-requested change.

Published

on

Call of Duty: Warzone players have long complained that the Gas Mask animation causes frustrating deaths, but the Warzone Pacific Season 1 update is set to fix the issue.

Like any battle royale game, Warzone’s closing ring of gas is extremely lethal. If you have any hope of surviving, you’ll need to pick up a Gas Mask. However, the obtrusive animation has long been a source of frustration for Warzone players.

Warzone Pacific Season 1 launches on December 8, bringing the new Caldera map, major changes to the Gulag, RICOCHET anti-cheat, and more. It’s also bringing an update to Gas Masks, making them much less of an annoyance.

The issue with Gas Masks is that you have no control over whether the animation starts or not. This stops you from aiming down sight, plating up, reloading, or even deploying your parachute.

Being inside the gas is meant to be punishing, but Warzone players have long felt that the animation is overly frustrating and have been calling for change. It appears this change will finally arrive with Caldera and Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Warzone’s developers announced that “Gas Masks won’t interrupt as many actions as they previously did.” Now, it’ll be “easier to pull your mask off or on, as well as plating up or reloading a weapon while getting out of the Circle Collapse.”

But it doesn’t sound like the animation will be completely gone, as the Gas Masks are still designed to punish players caught in the gas and favor those safely inside the circle.

We probably won’t know the full extent of the changes until Season 1 goes live on December 8. Alongside nerfs to Dead Silence, this is a change the community has long been asking for, so hopefully, Gas Masks will now cause far fewer unpreventable deaths.

What is Warzone Pacific’s Big Game Bounty contract?

Warzone Pacific will bring the Big Game Bounty contract when it moves to Caldera in Season 1, so here’s everything you need to know about it.

Published

on

Warzone Pacific and all of its content have been revealed, including a brand-new Big Game Bounty contract. Here’s how Caldera’s new contract works, and how to complete it.

Warzone made some significant changes to the battle royale formula, swapping out traditional looting for loadouts and including in-game contracts to give those who complete them a leg-up.

Call of Duty’s battle royale is about to evolve even further, heading to the Pacific and bringing the RICOCHET anti-cheat, nerfs to Stun Grenades and Heartbeat Sensors, as well as a new contract – Big Game Bounty.

Here’s how the Big Game Bounty contract works, and how to complete it.

Warzone Pacific Big Game Bounty contract

Warzone Pacific’s new Big Game Bounty contract will act much the same as the classic Bounty, but will only mark the player with the highest kill count.

The developers confirmed that this contract will only appear once per game, so if you survive a Big Game Bounty contract on your head, you won’t have to worry about getting another one. And if you fail to eliminate the target in time, you won’t get another shot.

Of course, this is likely much more high risk than the regular Bounty. When taking on a Bounty, you could get a player of any skill or in any situation. However, with the Big Game Bounty contract, you’re guaranteed to get one of the best players in the game.

But high risk comes with high reward, as taking down this target will remove one of the most powerful forces on the map, giving you more chance of securing the win. Plus, there will likely be a nice cash and XP bonus for your efforts too.

Top-tier Warzone streamers seem unsure of Big Game Bounty, with pro player MuTex calling it a “find the streamer” contract. He said that it’ll “either be super fun or absolutely terrible” but we’ll have to “wait and find out.” But these top streamers almost play a different game to the rest of us, so it might be better received by the majority of players.

Warzone devs also teased there will be a “Top Secret Contract” in Caldera, but haven’t given any more information. Although they did reveal that it “comes with greater rewards compared to the standard loot from the Contract types it chooses from.”
