Are you looking for the best Modern Warfare 2 weapons to use in multiplayer? Here are our three picks for weapons you should be using

Modern Warfare 2 Best Weapons: The player can be seen shooting a person

Modern Warfare 2‘s beta is here and after a few days, we have already started to see some weapons emerge as some of the best in the game. So, if you are looking to dominate, you can find the best weapons and guns in Modern Warfare 2 in this article.

From assault rifles to quick-firing SMGs, Modern Warfare 2’s best weapons and guns so far focus on consistency and reliability and the meta has started to be established. Some of those weapons have to be unlocked through the Receiver functionality in the Gunsmith or through a menu workaround, but it’s absolutely worth doing this to get them.

To find out what are some of the best weapons in Modern Warfare 2 during the beta, read on.

Modern Warfare 2 best guns and weapons

Here are our five choices for the best weapons in Modern Warfare 2:

Modern Warfare 2 Best Weapons: The M4 can be seen

M4 – best assault rifle

The M4 is our pick for the best assault rifle in Modern Warfare 2 at the moment based on what we can use. Easy to use, reliable, and accurate with a few attachments, the M4 is about as trusty a weapon as you will find in any Call of Duty game.

With the best M4 loadout, you can improve the recoil, gun kick, and accuracy of the AR. This should all help you rack up killstreaks and killing sprees in no time.

Modern Warfare 2 Best Weapons: The Lachmann-556 can be seen

Lachmann-556 – best assault rifle

The Lachmann-556 is a solid backup AR in Modern Warfare 2. While not quite as reliable as the M4, the Lachmann-556 packs a nice bit of power and can really hold its own in a gunfight.

You will want a wide spread of attachments to improve some of the weaknesses with this weapon, namely accuracy, but with the Fast Hands perks in your loadout as well you should easily be able to top the leaderboard. You can’t grab this weapon normally right now, but you can read our guide on how to unlock the Lachmann-556 in the Modern Warfare 2 beta. Our best Lachmann-556 loadout guide should also help you to do the best with it.

Modern Warfare 2 Best Weapons: The Lachmann Sub can be seen

Lachmann Sub – best SMG

The Lachmann Sub is the big brother to the Lachmann-556 and it has firmly established itself as the definitive best weapon in the game right now. Accurate, powerful, and reliable, the weapon, which is effectively an MP5 is capable of carrying you on extended killstreaks if you build out your Lachmann Sub best loadout right.

You can’t actually unlock this weapon in the normal way right now and you need to do a few workarounds. So, to find out how to unlock the MP5 in Modern Warfare 2 beta check out our guide. But, our best Lachman Sub (MP5) loadout should help you dominate with it.

Modern Warfare 2 best guns: The FSS Hurricane can be seen

FSS Hurricane – best SMG

The FSS Hurricane takes our spot for the next best SMG and our best FSS Hurricane loadout in Modern Warfare 2 focuses on making the gun a laser beam.

A mesh of little recoil, high damage, 50 bullets in the magazine, and immense accuracy, make it a formidable gun in anyone’s hands.

Modern Warfare 2 best guns: The FTAC recon can be seen

FTAC recon – best battle rifle

Battle Rifles are a surprisingly strong category of weapons in Modern Warfare 2. And, right now the best in the category is the FTAC Recon. Capable of double tapping your enemies, and killing them with one headshot if they are at medium health, the gun is an exceptionally powerful, long-range firearm.

While you won’t be able to run and gun with this weapon, if you prefer a slower playstyle, you won’t find anything much better in the game right now.

A runner-up here is the Kastov-74u. However, as you are unable to put attachments on it unless you are in a match so it doesn’t quite match up to the ease of usability and power that these three weapons offer right now. But, if you do want to test it out, it is also really strong in the beta.

So, now you know what some of the best weapons and guns are in Modern Warfare 2, take a look at our other guides which are aimed at helping you out and succeeding in the game. These include our best perks guide, which lists a few choices you should equip into your base, bonus, and ultimate slots.
