Recent nerfs in Call of Duty: Warzone have seen changes to the Battle Royale's meta. Most notably, the popular NZ-41 has received a nerf, opening the door for new weapons to potentially become the new meta.

As players scramble to find the next overpowered gun in Warzone. Swagg has re-discovered a weapon from the beginning of the game mode, released back in Modern Warfare. According to Swagg, the M4A1 may be the best Warzone gun after the NZ-41 nerf. Here's how to build the loadout that Swagg claims is the best.

Swagg's Best M4A1 Loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mags

According to Swagg, the M4A1 is still the "good old faithful" weapon to go for. The VLK Optic was always a reliable optic for the gun during modern warfare, and with a 60-round magazine, you'll have enough shots with low-recoil to take down enemies.

The gun may be an old choice, but occasionally in CoD, players discover old or unpopular weapons receiving a buff in updates, allowing them to be usable again. It's unclear if thats what happened with the M4A1, but the gun has always been a reliable choice of weapon, only overshadowed by metas throughout the years. Try running this loadout in your next game and decide yoursel if the M4A1 is back in the "best in the game" discussion.
