Following the end of the beta, players have found the strongest loadouts to use in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.

Scroll down so you have the upper hand as soon as the game launches!

The best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts are few and far between. Although Infinity Ward's latest release contains an extensive selection of weaponry, players are already gravitating towards a couple of guns that are standing out from the crowd.

Depending on your style of play, there are weapons suited to picking off opponents from a distance and ones that are better suited to running all over the map and gunning anyone you encounter along the way.

Before we share more information on the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts to use, check out our other guides showcasing the Modern Warfare 2 maps and Modern Warfare 2 perks making their way to multiplayer.

With the opening weekend of the Modern Warfare 2 beta done and dusted, players have had a chance to use some of the weapon arsenal that will arrive in the full build of the game. At the time of writing (September 21, 2022), the above loadout is the very best to use.

Best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifle loadout


Although the Lachmann Sub currently dominates the multiplayer meta, there's one assault rifle (AR) that's capable of contending with the SMG in mid-range engagements. If you prefer a slower pace of play, we highly recommend the Lachmann 556.

Featuring minimal recoil and incredible damage output, the Lachmann 556 is one of the easiest weapons to use in all of Modern Warfare 2.

Best Modern Warfare 2 sniper loadout

So far, the Signal 50 is leading the pack when it comes to the best Modern Warfare 2 sniper rifle. Although you can't customise it in the beta, it's still capable of eliminating a target with a single bullet.

With plenty more snipers arriving soon, we expect players to discover another strong rifle to excel in long-distance duels.

How many guns are in Modern Warfare 2?


With the full launch of Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, it's not long until the full arsenal of weaponry appears. The total number of guns remains a mystery but based on the beta that contains 21 weapons, we expect even more to appear.

Once we hear more, we will continue to update this guide with all there is to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 loadout to use in multiplayer.
