Best M4A1 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 6
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 attachments

- 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 stats prove LAPA is Season 6’s most underrated SMG
Stats from YouTuber TrueGameData proves that Season 6’s LAPA SMG is one of the most underrated weapons in Warzone.
The LAPA SMG arrived with Warzone Season 6’s The Haunting event, and even though it’s far from the most popular weapon, stats from TrueGameData prove it to be an extremely underrated weapon.
Season 6 marks Black Ops Cold War’s final season and the last gun, the LAPA, joined the fray as part of The Haunting event. While perhaps not powerful enough in Cold War, new stats prove it to be the most underrated weapon in Season 6.
YouTuber and Warzone statistician TrueGamaData compared the LAPA with two of the best SMGs, the OTs 9 and PPSH-41, and, even though it’s only the 23rd most popular weapon, he discovered that it’s a “top tier” Season 6 SMG.
Warzone LAPA TTK compared to OTs 9 & PPSH-41
What makes the LAPA so interesting is that it has three barrels that change how it behaves. Each one has its benefits, and TrueGameData compared each of them to his favorite SMGs, the OTs 9 and PPSH-41.
TrueGameData used the default site to compare the LAPA’s time to kill with the OTs and PPSH-41, and the LAPA’s BR Compact barrel came out on top.
However, when hitting a combination of different body parts, true to real players’ aim, the OTs 9 is best at close-range. The LAPA does have more range, with the Rifled barrel having the best long-range TTK of the three SMGs.
Because of these stats, its damage profile puts it in an extremely competitive spot.
Warzone LAPA has fastest movement speed
TrueGameData also compared the LAPA’s mobility with the OTs and PPSH and found that it has the fastest movement and ADS speed in the game. He said that these translate to the other mobility aspects, making it speedy across the board.
So if you’re looking for a speedy SMG, you can’t go wrong with the LAPA.
TrueGameData’s best LAPA loadout
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 7.9″ BR Compact
- Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
- Optic: Microflex LED
- Magazine: STANAG 50 Rnd
TrueGameData’s LAPA loadout is built around the 7.9″ BR Compact barrel, which gives a solid TTK at close range. The other attachments are standard for a Cold War SMG build, with a minor change.
He said that “the Iron Sights are terrible,” so you’ll want to use the Microflex LED instead. While this does leave out a mobility attachment, TrueGameData said that the gun is mobile enough that you can afford an Optic.
With the LAPA SMG boasting extremely competitive damage stats and the fastest mobility in the game, don’t be surprised if it starts climbing up the most popular weapons list as Season 6 marches on.

Vanguard devs explain why game size will be much smaller than Warzone & Cold War
Thanks to new tech, Call of Duty: Vanguard’s file size is set to be much smaller than Warzone and Cold War at launch.
Call of Duty players have grown increasingly frustrated with Warzone and Cold War’s massive file size, but Activision has explained why the problem will be fixed in Vanguard.
As Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War continue to update, the games’ file sizes have kept growing. Black Ops Cold War is now sitting at around 200 GB, with Warzone adding at least another 50 GB. If you have a smaller hard drive, Call of Duty doesn’t leave much room for anything else.
Activision already allows you to uninstall certain aspects of the games such as Campaign and Zombies, but they have plans to significantly reduce Vanguard’s file size at launch.
“Good news for hard drives everywhere,” tweeted Call of Duty on October 26. “Vanguard’s install size at launch will be significantly below previous Call of Duty releases.”
They didn’t reveal Vanguard’s exact file size, but players can expect to “save up to 30%-50%+ on next-gen console and PC hard drive disk space.” Although last-gen consoles weren’t mentioned, next-gen editions take up significantly more room, so this should bring the sizes more in-line.
This will be done through “new on-demand texture streaming tech,” which is already available in Modern Warfare and Warzone for PC. Rather than taking up space on your hard drive, textures are downloaded on the go. Warzone players previously saved around 25 GB when it was introduced, but their new tech appears to be more effective at reducing file size.
Of course, this could cause issues for players with a poor internet connection, so it remains to be seen if it’ll be optional.
This also lines up with the Microsoft Store listing that Vanguard will be 75 GB on Xbox One, and 95 GB on Xbox Series X|S. These early sizes are much smaller than Cold War’s 133 GB launch size.
Warzone and Vanguard will integrate later this year, bringing the new RICOCHET anti-cheat and new Pacific map. Warzone is currently tied to Modern Warfare, but it’s expected to shift over to Vanguard with Season 1. This could bring across the new tech, but we’ll need to wait for official confirmation.
We’re less than a fortnight away from Vanguard’s November 5 release, so we expect to find out more details before launch.
