November 28, 2022: The Minibak is an interesting SMG to use during Modern Warfare 2 season 1. Scroll down for the best loadout and best attachments.

As attention turns towards the launch of multiplayer, the best Modern Warfare 2 Minibak loadout is bound to catch the attention of players dropping into the action.. Infinity Ward's latest entry into the shooter franchise comes with a new arsenal of weaponry to master including this particular SMG.


The Minibak, heavily inspired by the PP19 Bizon from 2019's Modern Warfare, features a rapid rate of fire and a huge magazine as standard. Although it's capable of excelling in close-quarters combat, its mid-range performance is lacking. But, with the right attachments equipped, the SMG can compete at longer distances.

Elsewhere in the Call of Duty universe, check out our guides showcasing the Modern Warfare 2 maps and the best Modern Warfare 2 perks to use as part of a loadout.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Minibak attachments

The Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith contains an extensive arsenal of attachments to customise the Minibak. After some testing, here's the strongest combination:

  • Barrel: BAK-9 279mm Barrel
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Optic: Slimline Pro
  • Stock: FT TAC-ELITE Stock
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip

In comparison to other SMGs, the selection of attachments for the Minibak is surprisingly small. However, the BAK-9 barrel brings a much-needed increase in damage output to the SMG.

Additionally, the combination of FT TAC ELITE stock and True-Tac grip ensures a fast aim-down sight and sprint-to-fire speed which is particularly useful when reacting to an enemy that flies around a corner.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Minibak perks and equipment

While we wait to find a strong attachment combination for the Minibak, we can recommend a strong perk package and selection of equipment that provides further in-game improvements.


  • Double Time (Base)
  • Bomb Squad (Base)
  • Focus (Bonus)
  • Birds'-Eye (Ultimate)

It's hard to go wrong with this set of perks. Choosing Focus as the bonus perk reduces flinch when aiming down sights, allowing you to keep track of a target even if they're landing their shots.


  • Claymore (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)

Although they're annoying, a Claymore is a great way to earn a few extra kills. Place one around a corner or by a doorway and wait for the eliminations to roll in.

Is the Minibak good in Modern Warfare 2?

The large magazine is great for dealing with multiple opponents in a short space of time and thanks to the improvements from our attachment combination, the Minibak is a force to be reckoned with in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.
