What is the best Modern Warfare 2 EBR-14 loadout?

SZ Lonewolf Optic
SO R55 Adaptor
7.62 High Velocity
Rear Grip
FSS Gen. 7 Grip

This particular build improves range and accuracy to guarantee your shots hit the intended target in every engagement.

Although it's easy to make an impact thanks to these improvements, you will need some trigger discipline to avoid high recoil from causing problems.

Best Modern Warfare 2 EBR-14 attachments

The Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith contains an extensive variety of attachments capable of transforming any gun to suit any style of play. After testing numerous combinations, we've found five that suit the EBR-14 perfectly:

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S
  • Optic: SZ Lonewolf Optic
  • Stock: SO R55 Adaptor
  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: FSS Gen. 7 Grip

The Polarfire-S muzzle provides sound suppression in addition to a slight boost in damage alongside the 7.62 High Velocity rounds that guarantee minimal damage drop-off during matches.

Reacting quickly is the aim of the game in Modern Warfare 2 and the FSS Gen. 7 Grip combined with the SO R55 Adaptor stock ensures a fast aim-down sight (ADS) speed and sprint-to-fire time.

Best Modern Warfare 2 EBR-14 perks and equipment

Once the best EBR-14 attachments are equipped, selecting a perk package and equipment combination is the next step to build the ultimate loadout for this marksman rifle. Here are our recommendations.


  • Bomb Squad (Base)
  • Double Time (Base)
  • Focus (Bonus)
  • Quick Fix (Ultimate)

Bomb Squad and Double Time are excellent base perks in Modern Warfare 2. The increase in explosive resistance provides additional protection from incoming grenades while Double Time doubles Tactical Sprint to improve movement speed even further.

Rather than Fast Hands, we've gone with Focus for improved flinch resistance alongside Quick Fix for fast health regeneration.


  • Semtex (Lethal)
  • Flash Grenade (Tactical)
  • Trophy System (Field Upgrade)

Is the EBR-14 good in Modern Warfare 2?
