Through every iteration of the Warzone Battle Royale, the M4A1 has remained a powerful assault rifle, and that sentiment remains true in Warzone Pacific Season 3. Even on the Pacific island of Caldera, players continue to use the Modern Warfare rifle to dispatch their enemies.

Due to weapon tuning and changes, this rifle has gone through different tiers in any given meta. However, the damage per shot and the control that gives it so much versatility have been untouched. Even with a lack of attachments to choose from, the M4A1 loadout is a great choice.

The M4A1 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3 will only be able to hold five attachments at a time. Not having access to 10 attachments like the Vanguard weapons is certainly a drawback when counterbalancing a build, but many Modern Warfare rifles can still be found in top-tier rankings with fast TTK and long-range.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mags
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic

The Monolithic Suppressor is the first addition to the M4A1 loadout, and that is the norm across nearly all Modern Warfare weapons. This muzzle remains one of the best ways to compensate for weaknesses in rifles. Effective damage range increases and sound suppression are the main reasons to equip one.

Next is the Stock M16 Grenadier barrel. There are two barrels that can be considered viable and the other one is the Corvus Custom Marksman. Both of these barrels have incredibly similar stats that will enhance effective range, bullet velocity, and the overall recoil control on the weapon.

Compared to the Corvus Marksman, the Grenadier is a bit heavier and will cost slightly more in mobility. However, the rifle will perform better at range and in versatility. Swap in the Corvus if you want that extra mobility boost.

Commando Foregrips are another staple attachment for the Modern Warfare line of weapons, even in Warzone Pacific Season 3. These offer recoil stability and aiming stabilization with next to no negative impact on the mobility performance.

For the ammunition, many loadouts will use 50 Round Mags. In this loadout, the 60 Round Mags are used to make up for the increase in health in Caldera especially. Using the 50 rounds can be done in Rebirth without any consequences.

The VLK 3.0x Optic is the fifth attachment and is used on nearly every Modern Warfare rifle. A G16 2.5x would be the equivalent in the Vanguard loadouts that are based around assault rifles.

That's all there is to know about the M4A1 in Warzone Pacific Season 3.
