In a season of weapon changes and meta shifts, the XM4 has become a constant for a majority of players in Warzone. Because of all of the changes Raven Software has made to the assault rifle category, the XM4 has become one of the steadier options. It hasn’t received any buffs or nerfs this season and that’s actually attracted players to it after Season 5 Reloaded. This is in no small part due to its loadout, which hasn’t changed much this year.
Streamers and casual players alike seem to be using the XM4 more and more as Warzone Season 5 rolls on. Mason “Symfuhny” Lanier recently tweeted that he’s “been loving the XM4” following the Sept. 15 patch, which introduced some additional buffs and nerfs to rifles in Warzone. With this endorsement, players who haven’t used the XM4 before can discover its best loadout in Warzone.
Best XM4 loadout in Warzone
The XM4 acts like a standard assault rifle in Warzone, featuring a decently fast fire rate, great damage range and little recoil with the right attachments. Of course, players must know what those attachments are before they spend their hard-earned cash on a loadout with the XM4.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round
This loadout is fairly standard for an assault rifle in Warzone. The last three attachments on the loadout — Field Agent Grip, Axial Arms 3x and STANAG 60 Rnd — are used on almost every AR in the battle royale. The same goes with the Agency Suppressor, which allows players to stay stealthy on the map while also having a lowered recoil.
The one attachment that players may not have thought of is the 13.5″ Task Force barrel. This attachment got a buff in Season 5, and it now has improved bullet velocity, damage range and reduced recoil. This comes with some negatives to mobility but the XM4 is meant to be used at medium-long range. With this XM4 loadout in hand, players will be able to handle anything that’s thrown their way in Season 5.
