M60 Best Attachments & Class Setups Black Ops Cold War

The M60 is the big momma of the LMG class. It has the highest firepower and consistent ammo capacity. However, this is balanced by having the slowest fire rate and handling times in its class.

The Aim Down Sights Times are quite slow and the Iron Sights are frankly terrible. The weapon is quite accurate and it tends to have low horizontal recoil. However, after testing it can be sporadic at times especially from longer ranges. 

The guide below goes through the weapons stats and then suggests the best attachments to run on the M60. Finally, we give our top three class setups to run on the weapon. 

Weapon background

The M60 is a Black Ops classic appearing first in the original Black Ops and then later in Black Ops 2. 


  • Damage: 50
  • Rate of Fire: 517 RPM
  • Recoil: Low horizontal recoil

M60 Cold War Best Attachments

The best attachments for the M60 in Cold War are the:

  • 17.5” SOR Cut Down Barrel
  • Fast Mags
  • Serpent Wrap
  • SAS combat Stock

The SOR Barrel makes you 50% faster while moving and shooting, Fast Mags cuts 25% off reload times. Finally, the Serpent Wrap boosts ADS times by 25%. We also highly recommend an optic on the M60. The iron sights are horrific.

Another great attachment for the M60 is a stock. We suggest the SAS combat Stock or the Marathon Stock for increased handling times.

Best Class Setups

Class 1 – All Out Speed

This gunsmith setup is the fastest handling speeds you can achieve with the M60 while keeping most of its firepower.


  • 17.5” SOR Cut Down
  • Infiltrator Grip
  • Fast Mag
  • Serpent Wrap
  • SAS Combat Stock

Class Setup

The rest of the class is tuned towards a balance of stealth and countering enemy movement. The highlight of this class is the MP5. It’s a little beast to whip out if enemies get too close or instead of reloading that lump of an LMG.

  • Secondary: MP5
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja
  • Lethal: C4
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Proximity Mine
  • Wildcard: Law Breaker

Class 2 – Max Accuracy

This M60 setup is geared towards accuracy and works really well on bigger game modes and maps. It’s really effective in Combined Arms.


  • Royal & Kross 4x
  • 22.8” Task Force
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Field Agent Grip
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap

Class Setup

The max accuracy class setup is tuned for enemy reconnaissance and stealth. Forward Intel combined with Spycraft gives you the heads up on enemy reinforcements. Allowing you to take them out or even hack them before the enemy finds out.

  • Perk 2: Scavenger / Tracker

Class 3 – Thermal Noob

The final M60 class setup is the Thermal Noob. It reminds us of those cheese Black Ops 2 thermal LMG class setups. Remember the LSAT Target Finder noobs? Well, you might get dumped on for using it but it’s a beast class setup.

  • 22.8” Match Grade
