Our first of the Modern Warfare best M4A1 builds comes courtesy of Ian "Crimsix" Porter, one of the most decorated and successful Call of Duty pro esports players in the world. Having recently moved to Dallas Empire for the upcoming league, his M4A1 loadout focuses on sacrificing mobility for accuracy, ensuring the gun deals as much damage as possible at range.

If you love playing slowly, sitting in corners and pre-aiming doors for enemies to come barreling through, take a look at out stealth-focused build. With this, you'll be able to push for the high killstreaks, especially if you utilise things like the Heartbeat Sensor and Ghost perk.

Optic: Thermal Hybrid

Perk: Fully Loaded
Underbarrel: Bipod

For playing fast and frantic, I'd usually suggest rocking an SMG like the MP5. The M4A1 is so good however, that it can be used more than effectively in close quarters combat situations with a build like this, and relies a lot on hip fire kills up close.

Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip

Sometimes you just want to play as a standard assault soldier who can dabble in all sorts of situations. For that, you'll want this M4A1 build which can perform at range, up close, and everything in-between. The only thing you're sacrificing here is mobility, so while you'll be more than adept in close quarters combat, don't go barging into rooms full of enemies.

Barrel: Corvus Custom Marksman
Optic: Integral Hybrid
Perk: FMJ
Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
