The Modern Warfare 2 weapon arsenal continues to expand and thanks to regular doses of weapon balancing from Infinity Ward, there are always a few that stand out from the crowd due to their exceptional in-game performance.

With the start of Season 4 on the horizon, fans are looking forward to the potential return of a familiar face while others are hoping developers address a glitch sending them to the shadow realm.

As with most seasonal updates, the arrival of new weapons is guaranteed. But instead of focusing on weapons dominating the meta, players are debating the worst weapons to use in multiplayer.

What are the worst Modern Warfare 2 weapons?

In a poll created by Reddit user Dbeast1738, the user narrows the worst guns down to six unpopular options ranging from the M16 assault rifle to the Tempus Torrent marksman rifle.

With the votes continuing to roll in, players believe the M16 is the worst weapon in the entirety of Modern Warfare 2 despite receiving a significant buff as part of the Season 3 update.

Although the poll suggests the M16 isn’t a fan-favourite rifle, there are several members of the community that believe there are options that are far worse than this Call of Duty staple. One player says “the M16 doesn’t deserve the hate,” after recent buffs drastically improved performance.

Instead of the M16, another fan claims the “M14 (EBR-14) is the worst of them” and after attempting to tame its recoil, it’s hard to disagree.

As the weapon arsenal continues to expand, the worst guns and weapons to use in a loadout are bound to change, and with Season 4 expected to introduce another dose of weapon balancing, the title of the worst Modern Warfare 2 gun is bound to move away from the M16.
