CoD: Best Class Setups for the XM4 in Black Ops Cold War

The XM4 is the first Assault Rifle unlocked in Black Ops Cold War, but that doesn't mean it should be overlooked.

The M4 appears in most Call of Duty games and this year comes in the form of the XM4. In Black Ops Cold War, it currently isn't the favored weapon of most professional players, however, following some weapon nerfs it’s slowly creeping its way into the meta. Here’s our favorite class, and the class of Atlanta FaZe’s Main AR, Arcitys.

ESTNN’s Class

We like to run a build of the XM4 that only reduces reload time, sprint speed and increased hip fire spread. Other than these, everything else is increased, making the weapon more mobile and more accurate. To build our class, you’ll want to use the following attachments:

  • Quickdot Sight
  • Infantry Compensator
  • 13.5” Reinforced Heavy Barrel
  • Field Agent Grip
  • Steady Aim Laser
  • Jungle Style Handle
  • 40 Round Mag
  • Raider Pad Stock

Arcitys’ Class

Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson of the Atlanta FaZe likes to run a more aggressive style XM4, increasing sprint out speed, base movement and aiming movement. If you’re a more aggressive player, you’ll want to use the following attachments:

  • Millstop Sight
  • Muzzle Brake
  • 13.7” Takedown Barrel
  • Infiltrator Grip
  • Steady Aim Laser
  • Drop Shot Handle
  • 40 Round Mag
  • Wire Stock

With the XM4 being the first weapon unlocked in Black Ops Cold War, many players overlook it. However, with the right attachments, it can be one of the best weapons in the game and is perfect for a flex player.
