The best M16 loadout for Warzone is being theorized by the community after the tactical rifle from Black Ops Cold War was added to the Call of Duty battle royale mode.

Black Ops Cold War Season One kicked off Dec. 16 with integration between the latest Treyarch title and Warzone. Players can now earn cross-progression for the battle pass across both titles, use Black Ops Cold War weapons on Verdansk and Rebirth Island, as well as try out the new weapons in the battle pass.

The M16 has plagued public match lobbies since BOCW launched. The burst tactical rifle is considered by all to be overpowered. Does that strength transfer over to Warzone alongside the powerful weapons from Modern Warfare?

Best M16 Loadout Warzone: Best Attachments to Use

Here are the best attachments to use on the M16 in Warzone:

  • Optic: Visiontech 2x
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 20.5" Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap

The M16 is all about bursting down enemies from medium to long range. This build optimizes the weapon's power while also tuning for recoil control.

The muzzle, underbarrel and grip attachments are aimed to steadying your gun to compensate for the Task Force barrel. Both attachments help offset the recoil increase from the barrel. The barrel is the crux of the build providing 14% more damage, 50% more bullet velocity and effective damage range.

As it's a burst weapon, it's all about connecting early on. If you're unable to finish an enemy with the M16, the damage inflicted should make it an easy elimination for a secondary Mac-10 or MP5.

Black Ops Cold War Season One is available now.
