November 30, 2022: Looking for the best sniper ahead of Season One Reloaded? Scroll down for the best SP-X 80 loadout and the best attachments.

The best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 loadout could find itself dominating the multiplayer meta in the not-too-distant future. Heavily resembling the AX-50 from 2019's Modern Warfare and taking inspiration from Modern Warfare 3's MSR, this particular sniper has all the key ingredients to succeed in long-distance duels.


The Modern Warfare 2 arsenal contains several snipers that pack a deadly punch from a distance and if the SP-X 80 comes with a fast aim-down sight (ADS) time and is easy to control, it'll skyrocket in popularity as players get to grips with what Season One has to offer.

Before we take a closer look at the best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 loadout, check out our guides highlighting the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG and the Modern Warfare 2 maps available to play.

What is the best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 loadout?

Attachment Name
StockPVZ-890 Tac Stock

This build increases accuracy and range which makes all the difference in long-distance duels.

We've also improved bullet velocity slightly in order to minimise any damage drop-off.


Best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 attachments

The Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith contains a wealth of attachments to transform any gun to suit any style of play. The same goes for the SP-X 80 which has plenty of room for improvement. Here's what we recommend:

  • Muzzle: BVM-338
  • Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock
  • Ammunition: .300 High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip

This attachment combination only fills four of the five slots due to all barrels failing to provide an increase in damage. Despite this, these still enhance range and accuracy when it comes to long-distance engagements.

The combination of BVM-338 muzzle and Schlager Match Grip minimise damage drop-off in a bid to guarantee one-shot kills every single time.

How to unlock SP-X 80 in Modern Warfare 2

The SP-X 80 is part of the Bryson Long Rifle weapon family meaning players may need to use another gun in order to obtain the sniper. Simply reach the specified rank with the other weapon. When we hear more about the unlock method, we'll reveal the fastest way to get your hands on it.


If the sniper doesn't feature in a weapon family, simply work through the ranks by playing the game. Whichever method it is, we recommend using a double XP or double weapon XP token to speed up the process.

Best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 perks and equipment

Although the best attachments for the SP-X 80 remain a mystery, we're able to recommend perks and equipment that provide further benefits over the course of a match. Here's what we recommend using alongside the sniper.


  • Bomb Squad (Base)
  • Overkill (Base)
  • Fast Hands (Bonus)
  • Bird's-Eye (Ultimate)

Overkill grants the ability to use two primary weapons in exactly the same loadout. Alongside the SP-X 80, we recommend the trusty M4 assault rifle as the ideal sidearm.


  • Frag Grenade (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)
  • Trophy System (Field Upgrade)
