This loadout for the M4 makes it the best assault rifle and should have you racking up kills.
Trying to figure out the best gun will always be somewhat subjective. Though, this time around we came to an objectively right answer that everyone playing the beta will be able to get behind. Join us as we point you to the best assault rifle in the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta.
Modern Warfare 2 Beta Best Assault Rifle
If you’ve spent any time in the beta you likely already know which assault rifle is the best. That’s right, it’s the M4. Now, the M4 that comes as part of the default class you start with is trash, so don’t think that’s what this is based on.
Instead, once you can edit a loadout and start putting attachments on the M4 is where it truly starts to shine. It’s possible the Kastov-74U or TAQ-56 could be better, but the fact that they don’t level up or get any sort of sight instantly removes them both from the running. The M16, being burst, is also not considered for this. Using a burst assault rifle is a matter of personal preference, but there has never been a burst assault rifle better than a full-auto one.
Here is our recipe for the best M4 you can make at around the gun’s 10th level:
- Optic: SZ Reflex
- Stock: Corio Precio Factory
- Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
- Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
- Barrel: Tempus Hightower 20″ Barrel
With this set-up, it works whether you want to use it full-auto or take distant semi-auto shots like the FTAC Recon. This is a great loadout whether you want to take it into Prisoner Rescue or Knock Out as well as Team Deathmatch.
If you want to further familiarize yourself with the weapons available, we have a guide for all weapons with included screenshots of each.
