Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s meta is solidifying and players are finally figuring out what the best weapons in the game are. Kris “FaZe Swagg” Lamberson is one of the biggest content creators in Call of Duty history and he has come up with the perfect M16 loadout that you need to be using right now if you want to rake in those wins in Al-Mazrah. This entire build focuses on a “one-burst” setup that allows you to dispatch your enemies before they can react. Let’s take a look at this M16 loadout that has become a point of contention for nerfs.

Warzone 2.0: Best M16 Loadout 

Here are all the attachments you need to set up the best M16 Loadout in Warzone 2.0 right now: 

  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20

  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56

  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity

  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

  • Optic: Aim Op-V4

The Harbinger D20 is one of the best ways to reduce the M16’s bullet velocity and damage range and it is essential for the one-burst build. The FTAC Ripper 56 Underbarrel gives players some recoil reduction, making the M16 easier to control at range. 

Optics are a matter of personal preference but you cannot go wrong with the Aim Op-V4 which is one of the cleanest sights in the game. You can change this one to a different optic if you have other preferences.

For your ammo, you want to use the 5.56 High-Velocity Rounds which reduce damage range but increase bullet velocity noticeably. While it sounds like you will do less damage, you actually gain more DPS (Damage per second) thanks to the reduced bullet travel time. 

Finally, you want to use a 60-round mag to keep firing your weapon without stopping. In squad-based modes, it is the ideal Magazine to go for. For equipment, none of the following are must-haves but we definitely recommend using this setup for the M16 in Warzone 2.0

  • Perk Package: Weapon Specialist

  • Perk 1: Overkill

  • Perk 2: Strong Arm

  • Bonus Perk: Spotter

  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

  • Tactical Equipment: Drill Charge

  • Lethal Equipment: Flash Grenade
