Considered to be one of the best gun's in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the M4A1, or just M4, has various ways to loadout during gameplay. The assault rifle M4 can be used in both close-range fighting and also has the ability for shooting at a distance. This is the third assault rifle you can unlock in the game.

Compared to other assault rifles like the Famas or AK47, this rifle gives players the ability to strategically be used for close range combat, distance shooting, and even having a mix of both.

Best M4A1 Loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

This is an all-around great gun to use, no matter the situation you find yourself in.

Here are three ways to set up your M4 loadout:

1. Close Range Combat: Attachments: Barrel: FFS 11.5" Commando, Laser: 1mW Laser, Optic: Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex, Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape. The perks should coincide with running, so use these 3 perks: Double Time, Ghost, and Amped. Use a frag grenade and the Tacticle: Stim.

These settings are for close combat. The 1mW increases hip-firing and Stim will allow for quicker recovery, especially in between gun fights.

2. Far Range Combat: Attachments: Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier, Optic: Cronen LP945 Mini Reflex, Stock: Singuard Arms Invader, Rear Grip: Rubberized Grip Tape, Underbarrel: Operator Foregrip

This setup is made for accuracy, so far range combat is suited well with these attachments. This setup is used by the winningest CoD player, Ian 'Crimsix' Porter, who plays for the Dallas Empire. One downside is the sacrifice of mobility.

3. All-Around Gun Setup: Barrel: Corvus Custom Marksman, Optic: Integral Hybrid, Perk: FMJ, Ammunition: 60 Round Mags, Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip

This gun setup is used for both far-range and close combat situations. Although mobility is tainted, you will still have great accuracy long-range as well as being fit for a close-quarters combat.
