Despite other assault rifles receiving a major boost in the Season 2 update, the M4 remains one of the best weapons in all of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. It has the perfect blend of mobility and damage range for an assault rifle, making it a threat at either close or long range. However, just like any other weapon in Modern Warfare 2, the M4 needs a strong loadout to compete with the other top guns in multiplayer.

While players could attempt to use a loadout that worked for them in the past, the M4 and every other weapon have changed since then. Infinity Ward has tweaked the weapons and added new attachments, giving players a new experience than the one they had in Season 1. The recommended set of attachments for the M4 are the ones that got it banned in the Call of Duty League, so players already know it’s strong.

To see the full loadout for the M4 in Modern Warfare 2, keep reading below.

Best M4 loadout in Modern Warfare 2

  • Barrel: Tempus Hightower 20″ Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Stock: Tempus P80 Strike Stock
  • Rear Grip: XTEN Grip

This loadout is primarily focused on increasing the M4’s base recoil control and damage range. These are the two most important stats for an assault rifle unless players want to play at close range. The loadout begins with the Tempus Hightower 20″ Barrel, which increases damage range and reocil control. Then, we have the 5.56 High Velocity ammo to boost bullet velocity. The Phase-4 Grip improves overall recoil control and stability while the Tempus P80 Strike Stock and XTEN Grip greatly increase mobility.

With this loadout, players can beam enemies across any map without having to put a ton of bullets in enemies. Players will also be able to compete with SMGs at close range.
