Modern Warfare 2 M4 Best Class Build, Perks & Gear
Our picks for the best Modern Warfare 2 M4 secondaries, parks, and gear are:
- Core Advantage 1: Exaggerated
- Core Benefit 2: Scavenger
- Bonus benefit: Quick hands or Quickfix
- Ultimate benefit: Phantom
- Secondary: Accelerate 12
- Tactical: Stun Grenade
- Deadly: proximity mine
- Field Upgrade: ammo box
The two basic perks are all about making your life easier during the fast-paced fights you find yourself in. Exaggerated is necessary to use two main weapons, while Scavenger is the classic ability to grab ammo from corpses.
The bonus benefit can be either Fast hands Where Quick Fix. Both are amazing, but Fast Hands is a better perk to equip your secondary weapon faster while Quickfix increases your survivability during combat.
As your ultimate benefit, Phantom is by far the best option considering how long it takes for it to become active. Having it, you become invisible to enemy UAVs, handheld radars, and heartbeat sensors.
Accelerate 12 is a powerful shotgun that serves quite well as a secondary to use when changing zones or hunting enemies in tight corridors. It is a “one shot, one kill” weapon.
As your tactic, the Stun Grenade is extremely useful in situations where you need to enter a room or hallway. Throw it there and enter holding the Expedite 12.
Now the proximity mine is useful when you want to take advantage of cover and the M4’s ability to hit distant enemies. Place it near one of the entrances where you are to protect yourself.
Finally, the ammo box is a good choice since you are not going to have a bigger magazine for the M4. It also restocks your tactical and deadly explosives.
Enjoy the Modern Warfare 2 Beta!
