The assault rifle class in Call of Duty: Warzone has long dominated the meta, as the weapons in the class are a perfect blend of close and long-range power. For most players, their loadouts begin with a primary AR, which is the weapon they’ll use for most of their gunfights in Warzone.
In Season 4 Reloaded, this part of the meta has remained unchanged. Players are still using rifles more than every other weapon class. As such, players should know what’s the best AR to use in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded.
While there’s always going to be some debate as to the best weapon in a certain class, one gun will usually be consistently ranked higher than others. In Season 4 of Warzone, there have been a few different rifles atop the class, as Raven Software has released several meta-altering updates. At different points, the NZ-41 and Cooper Carbine were seen as the best ARs in Warzone. However, after the most recent update on Aug. 3, the consensus best AR in Warzone is none other than the KG M40.
Best AR in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded
The KG M40 has seen a meteoric rise occur for itself over the last couple of months. It started out as a weapon simply known for its high recoil control but not much else. Then, as the developers began to buff it, the KG M40 started to rise in popularity. Its peak has been Season 4 Reloaded, where its damage range finally rose to meet its already high accuracy.
Content creators and streamers have consistently used the KG M40 on their primary loadout in Warzone following the Aug. 3 update. The KG has arguably the best recoil control in all of Warzone, and recent buffs have boosted its damage range as well. While the AR is still slower compared to others, players don’t have to worry about moving quickly if they can laser enemies in a matter of seconds.
Players can view the best loadout for the KG M40 below so they can take advantage of it while its power lasts.
- Muzzle: MX Silencer
- Barrel: Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
- Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
- Stock: VDD 22G Padded
- Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
- Magazine: 8mm Klauser 60 Round Drum
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
- Perk 1: Tight Grip
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
We’re sure that a new top AR will rise later on in Season 5 of Warzone, but for now, the KG M40 is on top of the class.
