October 3, 2023: Season 6 is now live so we've adjusted the best MW2 RAAL MG loadout and the best attachments for multiplayer.

When it comes to building the best Modern Warfare 2 RAAL MG loadout in the early stages of Season 6, attachment selection is key in order to extract the most performance from this heavily underrated LMG during a Modern Warfare 2 match.

Armed with a deadly rate of fire and high damage output, the RAAL MG is the perfect weapon for those who prefer to pick off opponents from afar. However, for those who want to run and gun, the lack of mobility means it's very difficult to traverse the map as fast as possible.

Before we take a closer look at the best Modern Warfare 2 RAAL MG loadout, check out our guides showcasing the best Modern Warfare 2 sniper rifle and all of the Modern Warfare 2 maps available to play right now.

What is the best Modern Warfare 2 RAAL MG loadout?

  • Barrel: 26.5" Demo Field Pro Barrel
  • Optic: Hybrid Firepoint
  • Stock: Demo Folding Stock
  • Ammunition: .338 Mag High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip

With the damage levels of the RAAL MG already high, this build focuses on extending the range and addressing mobility.

The extra movement speed makes it much easier to navigate the map and react quickly to any incoming threats.

Best Modern Warfare 2 RAAL MG attachments

Thanks to the Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith, there's a huge variety of attachments capable of improving the RAAL MG's sluggish mobility. Here's an unbeatable combination to use for the remainder of Season 6:

  • Barrel: 26.5" Demo Field Pro Barrel
  • Optic: Hybrid Firepoint
  • Stock: Demo Folding Stock
  • Ammunition: .338 Mag High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip

Mid-range and long-distance duels are often decided by damage drop-off which is where the 26.5" Demo Field Pro barrel comes into its own. The increase in damage ensures you can compete with assault rifles. Alongside the barrel, .338 Mag High Velocity rounds also help with high damage output.

For improvements to mobility, the Demo Folding Stock, makes it much easier to move around while aiming down sights with the Hybrid Firepoint optic that's perfect for dealing with targets near or far.

How to unlock RAAL MG in Modern Warfare 2

The RAAL MG isn't part of a weapon family meaning the unlock process is incredibly straightforward in Season 5.

All you need to do to obtain it is reach level 25.

Best Modern Warfare 2 RAAL MG perks and equipment

Once the best RAAL MG attachments are equipped, we can recommend a perk package and equipment combination to deal some additional damage and improve mobility even further. Here's what you should use alongside the LMG for the rest of Season 6.

Perks

  • Double Time (Base)
  • Bomb Squad (Base)
  • Fast Hands (Bonus)
  • Ghost (Ultimate)

Double Time increases Tactical Sprint which allows you to move around the map even quicker with the RAAL MG in hand. Fast Hands also improves mobility thanks to an increase in reload and weapon swap speed.

Equipment

  • Frag Grenade (Lethal)
  • Smoke Grenade (Tactical)

The frag is great when it comes to dishing out some extra damage while a smoke grenade provides improvised cover if a fast-moving submachine gunner attempts to spring a surprise.

Is the RAAL MG good in Modern Warfare 2?

The RAAL MG has its place as a strong LMG but it won't feature in the meta during the early stages of Season 6. It's a fun weapon to unleash a relentless barrage of fire onto the opposition but if you want a gun that tops the scoreboard on a regular basis, it's worth looking elsewhere.
