Finding the best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45 loadout can take plenty of time due to the limitless number of attachment combinations available in the Gunsmith. Fans of 2019's Modern Warfare and the first Warzone will recognise this particular SMG that often appeared in the loadouts of players.


Featuring one of the fastest fire rates in the entire game, the Fennec 45 excels in close-quarters combat but damage drop-off does impact performance when attempting to use it at longer distances.

What is the best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45 loadout?

This build takes the edge of the Fennec's incredible mobility but provides much-needed increases in damage, range, and accuracy.

Even with the extra recoil, the SMG shreds in close-quarters combat and with some additional trigger discipline, it can make an impact at longer distances.


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 38. 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 38 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 attachments

The gunsmith contains a wide variety of attachments for the Fennec 45, making it tricky to find a combination capable of improving the performance of the SMG. After some testing, here's an unbeatable combination to use:

  • Barrel: Fennec Covert Force
  • Optic: Slimline Pro
  • Stock: FTAC Locktight Stock
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45
  • Rear Grip: Fennec Textured Grip

The huge damage drop-off prevented the Fennec from making an impact at longer distances. Thanks to the Fennec Covert Force barrel, damage is increased slightly allowing you to contend in mid-range engagements. Alongside the barrel, the Fennec Mag 45 magazine contains plenty of bullets which comes in handy when dealing with large groups of enemies.

Overall, these attachments still suit close-quarters action but in scenarios where you need additional firepower, you're able to score even more eliminations.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45 perks and equipment

Once the best Fennec 45 attachments, selecting a strong perk package 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.
