Best Modern Warfare 2 M13C attachments

The Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith contains a wealth of attachments to gear the M13C to suit your style of play. After spending time mastering the weapon, we've found a set of five perfect for mid-range gunfights.

  • Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
  • Barrel: 14" Bruen Echelon
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip

The Sakin Tread-40 muzzle and the D37 Grip provide some much-needed horizontal and vertical recoil control, guaranteeing high levels of accuracy in multiplayer. For some additional damage, the 14" Bruen Echelon barrel comes into its own with extra damage output and bullet velocity to prevent any drop-off.

Fast reaction times are a key ingredient to succeeding with the M13C. We've gone with the VLK LZR 7mW laser for faster sprint-to-fire time so you always land the early shots as fast as possible.

Lastly, the Cronen Mini Pro optic provides a crystal-clear view of the intended target.

Best Modern Warfare 2 M13C perks and equipment

After selecting the best MW2 M13C attachments, finding a combination of Perks and equipment is the next step to building the very best loadout. Here are our recommendations.


  • Base: Bomb Squad
  • Base: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate: Quick Fix

The star of the show in Season 5 is Quick Fix. The ability to regenerate health by scoring a kill or capturing an objective means you can stay in the heat of the action for much longer.


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

Semtex is one of the most versatile pieces of lethal equipment thanks to the ability to stick it to surfaces. To make the most of the M13C, use a stun grenade to slow the movement of the opponents for easy eliminations.

Is the M13C good in Modern Warfare 2?


The M13C is a solid option to use in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. However, there are better rifles available. It's a good choice if you're looking for an off-meta alternative but we don't see it setting the meta alight anytime soon.
