CoD: Black Ops – The best XM4 loadout and attachment guide

XM4 loadout

The XM4 is a very versatile gun that, while not really great in any field, will do very well in most areas. With a strong rate of fire, high accuracy, and good lethality, this is a great rifle to choose from if you’re new to the game. It won’t take a lot of expertise to get a good mix, so you won’t have to worry too much if you don’t run an optimal setup, as it can suit all gameplay. Below we will introduce to you the best XM4 loadout to help you master this weapon.

Best XM4 Loadout

XM4 loadout
  • Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle)
  • 13.5″ Paratrooper (Barrel)
  • Foregrip (Underbarrel)
  • Tactical Stock (Stock)
  • Quickdraw Handle (Handle)

While the XM4 loadout is powerful, there are rifles that outperform it at the range. With that said, it is a very versatile weapon and by using this setup you’ll be able to combine at both close and close range.

In our opinion, you are free to need a look for this weapon because attachments can be used in other areas to be more useful; not to mention the fact that the aim is very strong support.

However, if you’re having trouble with iron scopes, you can swap out the Tactical Warehouse or Quick Retraction Handle for vision; we recommend the Millstop Reflex.

The XM4 has a fairly predictable upward recoil with these accessories, which can be controlled with the Muzzle Brake 5.56 and the Foregrip.

You also replenish its powerful lethality with the 13.5 “Paratroopers’ Barrel, as well as the Quick Retraction Handle that allows you to quickly recap your victims.

Finally, the addition of a Tactical Warehouse helps you attack effectively while aiming down the line of sight, helping you better prepare for skirmishes and giving you an edge against oncoming enemies.

Secondary – XM4 loadout

  • 1911
  • Muzzle Brake .45 APC (Muzzle)
  • 6.54″ Paratrooper (Barrel)
  • Steady Aim Laser (Body)
  • 12 RD Speed Mag (Magazine)
  • Quickdraw Handle (Handle)

The accessory is seldom the star of the show, but 1911 is great for keeping track of weakened enemies and will give you enough to take short bursts when overwhelmed.

With a setup like this, you can create a weapon that compliments the XM4 loadout and provides reliable support in any situation.

You can easily switch to a shotgun if you feel the need to, but paired with the XM4, you don’t have to worry about that.


  • Stun Grenade

Among the available tactics, the stun grenade is very effective for checking the ridges and surrounding corners before moving to a more aggressive position.

Lethal – XM4 loadout

  • Frag Grenade

Again, frag grenades are probably the smarter choice in most situations.

Field Upgrade

  • Field Mic

The Field Mic is a great combination for the XM4 loadout as you can set it up both strong and defensive.

Placing it against the wall will allow you to easily push into hot contention points while placing it behind you will give you information if someone follows you.


XM4 loadout
  • Tactical Mask
  • Flak Jacket
  • Scavenger
  • Tracker
  • Ghost
  • Ninja

With a weapon like this, we found it unnecessary to use any additional accessories.

Due to the weapon’s versatility, it can easily be used for target game modes like Domination or Hard Score.

Tactical Mask and Flak Jacket will turn you into a target machine, helping you to fight explosives and tactics.

The XM4 can run through bullets quickly, so having a Scavenger would make sense like you would steal corpses in your massacre.

Wildcard – XM4 loadout

  • Perk Greed

When considering your Wildcard options, the choices are limited when you weigh the benefits they offer.

You could try adding more attachments, giving you more accuracy, a beautiful view, and a bigger magazine, but we don’t think they’re necessary.

Especially on a versatile and sturdy gun like this, so adding more perks to your XM4 loadout is the way to go.
