The M60 from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has never been considered a top light machine gun in Warzone. It’s often been overshadowed by LMGs like the Bruen MK9, or the Stoner 63. However, with the recent balance update in Season 4 Reloaded, the M60 has become an attractive option for LMG players, with the right loadout.
With Season 4 Reloaded, the M60 was one of two LMGs to receive a buff, the other being the PKM. In terms of stats though, the Cold War M60 LMG received a more substantial buff. Raven Software bumped up its maximum damage a tick and increased its headshot multiplier. While this might not make it the strongest weapon of its class in Warzone, the M60’s buff certainly warrants another pass when it comes to its loadout.
Best M60 loadout in Warzone
The main way to use a light machine gun in Warzone is for medium to long-range gunfights. It’s not going to excel at close-range unless it’s severely overpowered, like the Bruen back in 2020. This changes up the M60’s loadout quite a bit, as some players might be inclined to throw on multiple mobility-boosting attachments. Though not a detriment to the loadout, damage range and accuracy should be the areas prioritized.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 22.8″ Match Grade
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Stock: SAS Combat Stock
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
To maximize damage range, the Agency Suppressor and Match Grade barrel are the only choices. The former also suppresses sound when firing and the latter improves bullet velocity as well. For more help at long range, the Field Agent Grip is in use to vastly reduce recoil, which pairs nicely with the Axial Arms 3x scope.
Lastly, the only mobility-boosting attachment is the SAS Combat Stock. This stock improves movement speed while aiming and movement speed in general. While this loadout isn’t the Bruen of 2020, the M60 in Season 4 of Warzone is a great LMG option.
