MW2: Top 10 Best Weapons – That’s How the Meta Was Determined

Where do the setups come from? The meta setups come from YouTuber and CoD expert IceManIsaac. He introduced her in a video. He tested the best weapons over tens of hours playing with and against CDL professionals. If you don’t have all the attachments for any of the lineups yet, here’s how to quickly maximize your weapons in Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2: Best Assault Rifles

Installation for the Kastov-74u: We don’t need to reveal much more about this weapon. In another article, we already introduced you in detail to the Kastov-74u setup for Modern Warfare 2, which was even banned by CDL pros for being too powerful.

  • Mouth: Xten Havoc 90
  • run: BR209 barrel
  • shaft: Markeev R7 shaft
  • Handle: True Tac Grip
  • undercurrent: Agent Grip

Setup for the TAQ-56: Although the TAQ-56 is not banned by CDL professionals, it is still extremely strong. The assault rifle shines with the setup with extremely high precision and speed of movement. You are also well equipped with it from a distance. In Modern Warfare 2, you should use this setup to make the TAQ-56 one of the best weapons.

  • Mouth: Sakin tread-40
  • run: Tundra 14.5” per barrel
  • shaft: TV Cardinal Shank
  • Ammunition: 5.56 Armor piercing
  • undercurrent: FTAC Ripper 56

Lineup for the M4: We’ll come to Miss Call of Duty, if you want. Probably the most classic weapon in the franchise, the M4 is also extremely strong in Modern Warfare 2. The assault rifle is similar to the TAQ-56. However, the M4 fires slightly faster and is less accurate at long range. You need this setup to get one of the 10 best weapons in Modern Warfare 2.

  • run: Hightower 20″ barrel
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Speed
  • shaft: Tempus P80 Strike stock
  • Handle: Xth grip
  • undercurrent: Agent Grip

Setup for the STB 556: This assault rifle is arguably the best weapon to get you started in Modern Warfare 2. You can build the STB 556 full recoil control and turn it into a laser. If you’re better at controlling recoil, you can remove the muzzle attachment and go for target speed. This setup makes the STB 556 one of the top 10 weapons in Modern Warfare 2.

  • Mouth: Xten Havoc 90
  • visor: Slimline Pro
  • Pistons: FTAC C11 Boosters
  • Handle: Bruen Q900 handle
  • undercurrent: Lockgrip Precision-40

Modern Warfare 2: Best Submachine Guns

Setup for the Vaznev-9k: Among the submachine guns in MW2, the Vaznev-9k is a kind of all-rounder. With the SMG you are much faster than with the guns mentioned above. Even at medium ranges, the weapon is usable, although not as much as an assault rifle. To make the Vaznev-9k one of the top 10 weapons in MW2, you’ll need the following attachments.

  • Mouth: FTAC Castel Comp
  • run: CAS-1 381MM
  • shaft: Otrezat tribe
  • Handle: Demo X2 handle

Setup for the Fennec 45: You have to be strong now because this setup is disgusting. Like the Kastov-74u, the Fennec 45 has been banned by CDL pros because it’s just too strong. With the attachments, the Fennec 45 can only be used in close combat, but there it is all the more powerful.

  • Mouth: Lock shot KT85
  • run: ZLR 16.5″ ignition cylinder
  • shaft: FTAC Locktight axle
  • Handle: Fennec rubber grip
  • undercurrent: Lockgrip Precision-40

Lineup for the Lachmann Sub: The Lachmann Sub is similar to the Fennec 45. Only use this submachine gun in close combat. There, the device mows everything down faster than you can say “unfair”. However, unlike the Fennec 45, the Lachmann Sub has not been banned by CDL pros.

  • Mouth: Bruen Cubic Comp
  • run: L38 Falcon 226MM
  • shaft: LM Stockless Mod
  • Handle: Lachman TCG-10
  • undercurrent: Xten Drop Grip

Modern Warfare 2: Best Sniper Rifles

Setup for the MCPR-300: It gets a little more delicate. Probably the second best sniper in MW2 is one of two starter weapons in its class. The MCPR-300 impresses with its high mobility and aiming speed. So you’re extremely fast with it, but you can still spread one-shots – Quickscoping is back. You will need these essays in MW2.

  • visor: Cronen Zero-P visor
  • run: 22″ OMX-456
  • shaft: FSS Merc stock
  • Handle: Cronen Cheetah Grip
  • Magazine: 5-round magazine

Lineup for the Signal 50: The only sniper more powerful than the MCPR-300 is probably the Signal 50. It is much slower, but can fire semi-automatically. What Infinity Ward thought remains a secret, but the CDL pros took the consequence and banned the weapon in Modern Warfare 2. You’ll need these attachments in the setup.

  • Laser: Corio LAZ-44 V3
  • visor: Forge Tac Delta 4
  • shaft: SO inline shaft
  • Handle: SA finesse grip

Modern Warfare 2: Best Light Machine Guns (LMGs)

Setup for the Raal MG: This weapon is mostly impractical for the classic 6v6 mode in Modern Warfare 2. The LMG is just too cumbersome for that. However, you should not neglect the Raal MG. A CoD guru predicted that she will be part of the meta in Warzone 2.

  • Mouth: FTAC Reaper
  • run: 21″ EXF Rhino barrel
  • visor: VLK 4.0x visor
  • Handle: Dot 40 grip
  • undercurrent: SA Side handle

We’ve only considered primary weapons in these top 10 best weapons in Modern Warfare 2. However, the secondary weapons have it all too. This X13 setup is guaranteed to terrorize MW2 multiplayer.
