With BOCW weapons looking to take a hit in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3, we're here to guide you through an M4a1 setup that you can rely on. With these attachments you'll be bodying squads at every range, so let's get started. 

The M4a1 has always been strong in Warzone, but luckily, it stayed under the nerf-radar and remains one of the best choices to this day - Season 3. The M4 is a full-auto assault rifle with a fantastic range of attachments and no real downsides, which makes it ideal for almost every situation.

The Monolithic Suppressor makes it on to pretty much every Warzone setup, and for good reason – you keep off the radar and gain range while you're at it. For ammunition, we've got a similar story, extra rounds are always good. Some of you might be thinking: why 50 and not 60 rounds? In the case of the M4a1, the dps is strong enough to win most engagements before you've spent 50 rounds so the disadvantages to handling that the extra ten rounds provide are simply not worth it.

With the barrel, we've taken the M16 Grenadier, a good middle ground between range and handling that's offset nicely by that no-stock mobility boost. Finally, optics, which will be perhaps the most controversial choice as a lot of players dislike the extra complexity required by a variable zoom optic. That said, the Canted Hybrid – if you can be bothered to practice with it  – will finish this build off nicely, and give you the perfect all-rounder weapon. 

Are you going to give this M4a1 setup a go? We're pretty sure you won't be disappointed. Let us know you're thoughts on the meta-shift right now on Twitter or Facebook, and for all the best Warzone guides (and a whole lot more) sign up for free on EarlyGame
