As is tradition, there is a long list of weapon balance changes affecting a range of popular guns in Warzone 2. However, everyone’s favorite M16 Rifle is still going strong, as it has been left untouched following the latest update.
As with most other COD weapons, you must pair the M16 with the right attachments to get the most out of it. However, finding the best gunsmith loadout is daunting, which is why we’ve got you covered with the best Warzone 2 M16 loadout in the latest update. So without any further delay, let's dive into the details.
Best M16 Loadout in Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded
The best gunsmith loadout for M16 in Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded is:
- Muzzle: Harbinger D20
- Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
- Stock: Corio Precio Factory
- Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
- Optic: SZ Holotherm
To start off, we've gone for the Harbinger D20 attachment for the Muzzle slot. It's a tactical suppressor with a heat cover, which conceals the bullet sound and deals more damage while the recoil is smoother. To unlock this attachment, you need to upgrade the STB 556 weapon to Level 18.
Next, our M16 loadout uses 5.56 High Velocity, which is an ammunition attachment in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. The attachment increases the bullet velocity in order to minimize the bullet drop at the cost of a reduction in damage range. The 5.56 High-Velocity attachment can be unlocked by raising the STB 556 to Level 7.
To further improve the aiming stability and recoil control, we've picked the Corio Precio Factory stock attachment for this M16 rifle loadout. This stock attachment provides stability and decent recoil control for high-caliber rifles like the M16. Unlocking this attachment requires you to level up the M4 to level 7.
Finally, the SZ Holotherm is a perfect fit for M16's optic slot, as it highlights the enemies, even if they're behind a smoke, using the thermal ability. To unlock this attachment, Raise the PDSW 528 to Level 12.
So there you have it, the best M16 rifle loadout for Warzone 2 Season 1 reloaded with all the right attachments.
