Best XM4 Loadouts in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The XM4 is the first assault rifle unlocked in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer, but with the right attachments it could be the best.

This weapon is best used when at medium to long distance away from your target. However, it could also be unstoppable at close range with the correct loadout.

With not even a week since Black Ops Cold War's release, the MP5 is dominating the multiplayer meta. This XM4 class rivals the firepower of the most used gun in the game.

Both of the following loadouts pack a significant punch in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer.

The Best Gunfighter XM4 Loadout

While the gunfighter wildcard is not required to create a solid XM4 layout, it's recommended. With three extra attachments, this weapon is near unstoppable at mid to far range.

Optic: Microflex LED
Muzzle: Socom Eliminator
Barrel: 13.7" Takedown
Body: Steady Aim Laser
Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
Magazine: 40 Round Speed Mag
Handle: Airborne Elastic Grip
Stock: Buffer Tube

The 13.7" Takedown barrel increases the range of the XM4 significantly. Even when playing search and destroy, it is recommended to use this over a suppressor.

With these attachments, this weapon has practically no recoil. It shoots like a laser. Also, the 40 round speed magazine allows you to hold down the trigger longer while being able to load quickly.

The Best XM4 Loadout (No Gunfighter)

Optic: Microflex LED
Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
Barrel: 13.7" Takedown
Magazine: 40 Round Speed Mag
Handle: Airborne Elastic Grip

This loadout shares most of the core features of the gunfighter loadout, minus the close-range important steady aim laser. This loadout is best used at medium range.

The non-gunfighter loadout borrows the optic, barrel, magazine, and handle from the gunfighter variant and for good reason. The optic is a must as it's regarded as the best in the game for the gun.

The barrel and magazine are essential because of the increase in firepower, accuracy, and ammo each gives to the XM4.

You can't go wrong with either of these loadouts, but if you have gunfighter unlocked you should give that a try first.
