Best Modern Warfare 2 Vaznev 9K attachments

The Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith includes a wide variety of attachments allowing players to modify the Vaznev 9K to suit all styles of play. Here's what we recommend:

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip

This simple, yet hugely effective, attachment combination enhances mobility and recoil alongside increasing the range in order to improve versatility. The Lockshot KT85 muzzle reduces horizontal and vertical recoil enough to prevent any unwanted kick while the True-Tac grip improves sprint-to-fire and aim-down sight speed.

There are only minor improvements to the Veznev 9K but they're enough to make it a viable option.
