What is the best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45 loadout?

Although the Fennec 45 is available to use in Modern Warfare 2, any kind of Gunsmith customisation is impossible meaning you can't equip any attachments on the SMG.


However, even without any attachments, it's still capable of making an impact when up close and personal with the opposition

How to unlock the Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45

In order to get your hands on the Fennec 45, all you need to do is reach Level 25. There's no need to use any other weapons to unlock a specific receiver so you can start shredding with this powerful SMG.

To reach Level 25 as fast as possible, we recommend jumping into some Invasion for large-scale action or Domination where playing the objective comes with some sizeable XP bonuses.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45


As mentioned above, the Fennec 45 that appears in the Modern Warfare 2 beta features no weapon progression, making it impossible to tell what the best attachments are.

Thankfully, it's not long before the full version of Modern Warfare 2 launches so be sure to check back soon for a detailed look at the strongest attachment combinations to use on the SMG.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45 perks and equipment

Although we can't determine the best Fennec 45 attachments, we can recommend a strong perk and equipment selection. Having a solid perk package and some powerful equipment to deal some extra damage makes all the difference during a match. Here's what we recommend.


  • Double Time (Base)
  • Battle Hardened (Base)
  • Quick Fix (Bonus)
  • Birds-Eye (Ultimate)

For our base perks, Double Time and Battle Hardened act as a strong starting combination. An increase in Tactical Sprint combined with resistance to any incoming flash or stun grenades allows you to move quickly and maintain focus on your target.

The best bonus perk to use in Modern Warfare 2 is Quick Fix due to the fast time to kill. Scoring a kill instantly triggers health regeneration enabling you to get back in the fight as fast as possible.

Lastly and by no means least is Birds-Eye as our ultimate perk. Once active, you can see red dots on the mini-map allowing you to plan your next move with ease.


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

This equipment combination is proving extremely popular. Use semtex to clear players off a Domination flag or stick it to an oncoming vehicle for an explosive surprise. As for a flash grenade, throw it around a corner to see if anyone's waiting and if they are, fly forwards to secure a very easy kill.

Lastly, dead silence is our field upgrade of choice. Temporarily silence your footsteps to sneak behind enemy lines without alerting anyone to your location.

Is the Fennec 45 good in Modern Warfare 2?

Although you can't improve the Fennec 45 in any area, the baseline is extremely good for running and gunning the opposition. Most kills use at least half a magazine so make sure to keep an eye on your ammunition if you're on a lengthy streak.

However, there are better options if you're looking for a SMG that performs at longer distances.

That's all there is to know about the Fennec 45 in Modern Warfare 2 so far. For more, check out our guides showing the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG alongside intel on the next Modern Warfare 2 double XP event.
