We know we don’t need to give this piece an introduction, really, but we’re going to anyway. It’s time to talk about The Loadout’s Best Modern Warfare 2 Loadout of the Week, once again, and you’re in for a treat. Last week, we touched on the best Modern Warfare 2 RPK loadout available, but this week we’re talking about one particular SMG that shreds. If you want to take full advantage of the best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec 45 loadout out there, you’re in the right place.

When it comes to talking about the best Modern Warfare 2 SMG options available, the Fennec 45 has to be in the conversation. This short-range submachine gun fires fast and deals a lot of damage in a short burst. It doesn’t quite have the ammo capacity to deal with multiple enemies in a battle royale situation, but you’ll find it more than capable when it comes to MW2’s multiplayer mode.

So, we’re going to talk about how you can take advantage of this SMG’s natural strengths with a loadout courtesy of Call of Duty content creator ‘Ears‘. As you’ll be able to see for yourself at the 09:45 mark in the video below, they pair the following Fennec 45 build with a knife. While this is far from a bad thing, we’re going to pair it with something that offers up a little more range than a Combat Knife.

But, that’s for later. Right now, let’s talk about the Fennec 45 itself and what you need to equip it with. Here’s the Best Modern Warfare 2 Loadout of the Week’s Fennec 45:

  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Barrel: Fennec Covert Force
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40
  • Rear Grip: Fennec Rubber Grip
  • Magazine: Fennec Mag 45

The Fennec Rubber Grip works with accuracy-improving underbarrel attachment to improve this weapon’s sprint to fire speed and ADS speed, both of which lend themselves well to it’s naturally high mobility and insane fire rate.

The Fennec Covert Force barrel attachment then adds sound suppression while improving this weapon’s damage range and bullet velocity. It also tightens the hip-fire recoil spread, only improving this weapon’s close-range capabilities.

Now, we know the primary weapon is the main focus of a loadout, but it’s not the only thing you need to consider. That’s why we’re recommending that you pair this Fennec 45 with an akimbo X13 setup. You can find that build below:

  • Muzzle: FT Steel Fire
  • Barrel: XRK Sidewinder-6 Slide
  • Laser: 1mw Pistol Laser
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo X13
  • Magazine:  24 Round Mag

As for the rest of the loadout, Stun Grenades and Semtex are always a good bet when it comes to throwables. In addition to this, we recommend creating a perk package with Double Time, Scavenger, Resupply, and Quick Fix – just like Ears is using.

Is this loadout going to be using one of the best Modern Warfare 2 guns out there? We think so, but it’s worth trying it out for yourself. The Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 release date has been pushed back, but an update is coming and it could very-well make this gun even better than it is. We just don’t know for certain, yet.
