  • Optic - Cronen Mini Pro
  • Barrel - Hightower 20" Barrel
  • Grip - Phantom Grip
  • Muzzle - FTAC Castle Comp
  • Stock - Demo Precision Elite Factory

The Cronen Mini Red Dot is a good choice for increasing the weapon's precision, but you can use any Optic you want. However, the Tempus Hightower 20′′ Barrel is critical to this build because it improves bullet velocity, range, hip fire accuracy, and recoil control all at once, making the M4 effective in almost any situation.

The Phantom Grip will increase your Aim Down Sight speed and Sprint to Fire speed, and the FTAC Castle Comp aids in recoil control and keeping the weapon steady. And lastly, the Demo Precision Elite Factory will give an extra touch of control and stability to round the weapon out and make it deadly in quick gunfights. 

Best M4 Loadout in MW2 - Perks & Equipment

  • Secondary - X12
  • Perk 1 - Double Time
  • Perk 2 - Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk - Focus
  • Ultimate Perk - Ghost
  • Tactical - Flash Grenade
  • Lethal - Semtex
  • Field Upgrade - Dead Silence

The X12 is currently the ideal secondary weapon for the Modern Warfare 2 M4 loadout. This is a straightforward pistol that is excellent at its intended function as a backup. Additionally, Double Time will give you an advantage as you move around the map and engage enemies, and Bomb Squad will assist you in mitigating explosive damage as the action heats up.

As the game progresses, using the Focus Perk to reduce flinching will benefit you more and more. Ghost is required in this situation to hide you from the view of the numerous UAVs, portable radars, and heartbeat sensors used in matches. 

When it comes to gear, you can't go wrong with the Flash Grenade as your Tactical to blind enemies as you pick them off and the Semtex as your Lethal to deal some significant damage to numerous players at once or if you're in a tight spot. Last but not least, Dead Silence will temporarily silence you as you approach enemies, allowing you to ambush them with your powerful M4 setup.
