September 20, 2023: Season 6 is on the way and we've tweaked the best MW2 SA-B 50 loadout and the best attachments to use.

The best Modern Warfare 2 SA-B 50 loadout is often slept on. The rifle remains a strong option before Season 6 begins. The SA-B 50 slots into the Modern Warfare 2 marksman rifle category, acting as a hybrid between an assault rifle and a sniper rifle.

Despite recent buffs and nerfs in other areas of the arsenal, this particular marksman rifle remains a solid option if you're after a weapon that rarely features among the best guns and makes an impact in mid and long-range engagements before the next seasonal update gets underway.

Before we take a closer look at the best Modern Warfare 2 SA-B 50 loadout, take a look at our guides showcasing the best assault rifle and when the next double XP event takes place.

What is the best Modern Warfare 2 SA-B 50 loadout?

This particular build heavily focuses on accuracy levels and although mobility takes a slight hit, it's very easy to land your shots with the SA-B 50.

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Stock: FTAC EZX-Pro
  • Ammunition: .308 High Velocity

The silencer suppresses the majority of gunfire, adding an element of stealth and a slight increase in damage range to guarantee maximum impact on the target.

Best Modern Warfare 2 SA-B 50 attachments

The gunsmith contains a huge range of attachments with various pros and cons. It takes plenty of time to settle on a strong combination so we've taken out the work to find a lethal set of five that guarantees plenty of kills over the course of a match. Here are our recommendations for the rest of Season 4:

  • Muzzle: Polarfire-S
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Stock: FTAC EZX-Pro
  • Ammunition: .308 High Velocity

This set of attachments is packed with power and accuracy improvements that make all the difference. The Polarfire-S muzzle provides the extra damage while the High Velocity rounds prevent any kind of damage drop-off.

Reaction time is another key area to improve for the SA-B 50. The Schlager Match Grip combined with the Schlager PEQ Box laser allows you to snap onto the target in a matter of seconds.

Overall, this combination is strong in several areas but the star of the show is the improvements in accuracy levels.

Is the SA-B 50 good in Modern Warfare 2?

The SA-B 50 is an interesting marksman rifle in Modern Warfare 2. While its laser-like accuracy is great for mid-range combat, the regular appearance of hitmarkers means it's very easy to miss out on easy eliminations. It's relatively solid but when the SP-R 208 is in the same category, it makes more sense switching to the other rifle.
