There’s a lot for assault rifle fans to love in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

There are at least six assault rifles to mess around with—and basically all of them are formidable in a variety of situations. But as is usually the case, a few guns stand out above the pack.

Now that the CDL season is in full swing, the XM4 has emerged as a dominant gun in the game. It’s so good, in fact, that players have agreed not to use it in league matches as part of a “Gentleman’s Agreement.” But that won’t stop you from using it in League Play.

Metas change and players switch up their loadouts often, so make sure to check back to see what’s new and what’s different every now and then. If these loadouts are good for the pros, they’re good for your League Play matches, too.

Here’s what loadouts the Call of Duty League pros were using for the XM4 before they agreed to bench it.
