Many of the top-tier weapons are Vanguard guns, and that can be attributed slightly to the 10 attachments that each one contains. Despite the difference in attachments, the XM4 proves the damage potential and control that it has is hard to ignore. Five attachments are all you need when the base stats are so good.
Warzone Pacific Season 3 - Best XM4 loadout
One of the best aspects of the XM4 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 3 is simply the best stats. When building the most effective Black Ops Cold War rifle, you will only need the most basic of attachments to make the gun viable. In general, the main stats to focus on are range and control of the recoil pattern.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 13.5" Task Force
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Magazine: STANAG 60 Rnd
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
An Agency Suppressor is a classic muzzle attachment for the Black Ops Cold War line of rifles, and for good reason. This suppressor will provide a host of benefits like recoil control, damage range, and bullet velocity on each shot. On top of those stats, the suppressed shots are a fantastic bonus.
Next up is the 13.5" Task Force, and this has many of the same benefits as the Agency Suppressor. On this barrel, bullet velocity, effective damage range, and recoil control are all enhanced yet again. The only difference is that these will be increased to a higher degree, while the negative affects will be worse.

The last attachment that will help with control is the Field Agent Grip. Simply put, both vertical and horizontal recoil control will be increased to a much higher degree. With this underbarrel, there will be virtually no recoil to worry about, and accurate shots will be easy for nearly anyone using the rifle.
For the magazine, the STANAG 60 Rnd is the best option. The Salvo version can make the reloads faster, but the slowed mobility isn't worth the quicker reloads. On the other hand, the 40-round mags are also not enough. With the added health to Caldera, 60 rounds are a must.
The final attachment is the Axial Arms 3x optic. This is the standard mid-range optic for any Black Ops Cold War rifle. Comparable optics are the VLK 3.0x and the G16 2.5x from Vanguard.
With those five pieces, the XM4 loadout is good to go in Warzone Pacific Season 3.
