Assault Rifle: M4A1

Because it embodies a "jack of all trades" skill set, the M4A1 is a strong choice for any player.

Assault Rifle: M4A1

The M4A1 is one of the most popular assault rifles in the entire realm of Warzone, and it is not particularly difficult to see why. The M4A1 is the ideal combination of volatility, versatility, and total control. Its easy to handle recoil pattern even makes it a more than formidable choice from ranges that other assault rifles struggle at.


  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic – G.I. Mini Reflex or PBX Holo 7 Sight or VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mags

The redundancy of the monolithic suppressor throughout these attachment explanations really speaks to how good the attachment is as a range-extender with very little downside. The Stock M16 Grenadier not only furthers the same range, but also improves recoil and bullet velocity. All the optics are a matter of player-choice. The Commando Foregrip boosts aiming and recoil stability. Having a 60 round mag, although it can hinder movement, creates a massive clip that reduces the need to reload.


Fire Rate: With an extremely quick rate of fully automatic fire, it is hard to question how fast the M4A1 can be.

Control: With negligible recoil, much of the M4A1’s success lies in its ability to be a fast-firing gun with plenty of user control.

Damage: From closer up, the damage of the M4A1 can be devastating among other assault rifles, especially coupled with the fire rate of each individual round.

Accuracy: Shots in general are pretty spot on with the M4A1, with much of that being due to the aforementioned control.


Range: Because it is a fully-automatic assault rifle, range fall-off is something to consider.

Mobility: Although players can move acceptably well with the M4A1, mobility is not necessarily a strength.
