The M4 is Modern Warfare 2’s most powerful Assault Rifle, and this fully automatic is doing wonders in the MW2 Open Beta. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on creating the optimal loadout for the M4 in MW2 Open Beta.
The M4 is one of the most versatile weapons in the game. It’s based on the M4 platform that branches out to M16 Burst Fire AR, Icarus LMG, and FSS Hurricane. The weapon was also one of the best and most used weapons in MW (2019).
M4 is one of the most popular weapons in the recently released open beta. It has the best damage over range and top of its class fire rate. It can be converted into a long-range beamer by using the proper attachments. Here’s the best loadout for M4 in the open beta of MW2.
How to unlock the M4 in MW2
The M4 is available from when players reach level 5 in CoD: MW2 for the first time, but that doesn’t ensure everything connected to the weapon is unlocked. Players will have to level up their rank with the M4 as players would with any other gun in Call of Duty games, new or old, to unlock some of the better attachments for the weapon.
To rank up a weapon, spend time in MW2 with it equipped. While the M4 will always gain a constant flow of XP while equipped, players can speed up the process by using it to slay enemies, take down killstreaks, and complete objectives. And they will gain even more weapon XP for the M4 if they activate a weapon-oriented XP token before an MW2 match begins.
Best M4 Loadout
- Laser: 4MW Laser Box
- Barrel: Tempus Hightower 20″ Barrel
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Stock: Demo Fade Pro Stock
- Rear Grip: XTEN Grip
- Receiver: M4
Best Equipment & Perks for M4 Loadout
- Tactical: Snapshot Grenade
- Lethal: Proximity Mine
- Base Perk – 1: Tracker
- Base Perk – 2: Battle Hardened
- Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
- Ultimate Perk: Hardline
A snapshot grenade and proximity mine are the best tactical and lethal for the loadout. The snapshot grenade is handy for checking areas, as it emits a scan when it’s projected. Furthermore, the proximity mine is an excellent tool for locking chokepoints.
As for the reworked perk system, the base perks 1 and 2 are tracker and battle-hardened. The tracker perk highlights the enemy’s footsteps and battle-hardened increases damage resistance to explosives in-game. On the other hand, the fast hands’ bonus perk increases the weapon switching and reload speed.
Other Alternatives to the M4 in the Current Meta
Other alternatives to the M4 are FSS Hurricane and AK-74u. However, there are other assault rifles in the game, but they are currently unavailable. So, the best alternative for this weapon can be determined when the game gets an entire release.
