Assault rifles aren’t quite dominating the meta in the Modern Warfare 2 beta currently, but they are still really powerful. So, you definitely should overlook them completely. And, one of the weapons is the Lachmann-556, which this guide will cover and offer the best Lachmann-556 loadout in Modern Warfare 2.
Focused on long-range fights and combat, the Lachmann-556 is the bigger brother of its SMG variant and it is a far slower weapon. But, it is capable of dealing more damage and being more accurate across longer distances, so this loadout will focus on that long-range combat.
Read on below for our suggestions for the best Lachmann-556 loadout and class setup in Modern Warfare 2.
Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann-556 best loadout
When it comes to building the best loadout for the Lachmann-556 in Modern Warfare 2, you will want to pick attachments that focus on the long-range capabilities of the weapon. Our best Lachman-556 loadout in Modern Warfare 2 is:
- Receiver: LM-16
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Stock: Lachmann S9 Factory Stock
- Rear Grip: LM Cronus Grip
- Laser: None
- Barrel: Lach-12 Barrel
- Muzzle: None
- Underbarrel: VX Pineapple Vert Grip
- Ammunition: None
- Magazine: None
The Lachmann-556 isn’t quite a part of the meta during the beta, but right now you want attachments that play to its mid-to-long range strengths. The Cronen Mini Red Dot gives you a better sight than the iron sights, while the Lachmann S9 Factory Stock is there to boost your sprint speed, aim walking speed, aim down sight speed, and crouch movement speed.
This attachment allows you to properly manoeuvre around the map while aiming down sights, while still maintaining your agility. The LM Cronus Grip is there to help with the flinch of the weapon and keep you on target at a range.
Following on from that is the VX Pineapple Vert Grip which reduces your Gun Kick, increases your aim walking steadiness, and boosts your hip fire recoil control, and hip fire accuracy. It does slow your aim down sight speed, but the buff offered by the stock choice helps negate this somewhat. The buffs offered are also strong enough that it warrants including in your setup.
Finally, we recommend the LM Aurora 90 Barrel which increases your bullet velocity and damage range, playing to the weapon’s strengths from a distance.
Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann-556 best loadout secondary weapon
The X12 is our secondary choice for the best Lachmann-556 class setup. It is trusty, reliable and, more importantly, capable of saving you in a sticky situation.
We actually will recommend you run Overkill on this loadout, so if you follow it completely, switch out the pistol for the Expedite 12 shotgun.
Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann-556 best loadout perks and equipment
When choosing your perks you won’t be moving around a lot, so the perks will focus on awareness and keeping you protected. Firstly, we suggest you run Overkill in order to get the Expedite 12 as a backup. But, if you want another perk, we suggest running Battle Hardened, which will keep you from being caught in a stun grenade for too long, or another tactical piece of equipment.
For your second base perk, you should be running E.O.D, which will stop you from flinching and getting damaged by lethal equipment and explosions being thrown in your direction from the position you are set up in. Next, you will want to use the Fast Hands bonus perk as the reload speed for the Lachmann-556 is relatively slow.
Lastly, you will want to run Bird’s Eye as your final perk. This will open up your minimap and allow you to see more of the map, rather than the more condensed view you get by default. This allows you to better survey your flank and keep an eye on more areas of the map.
For tactical grenades, make sure to run the stun grenade to catch enemies off guard if they jump-shot you around a corner. Then, as your lethal choice, you will want the proximity mine to keep an eye on your rear and stop you from being snuck up upon.
Lastly, the final equipment you want is the Portable Radar field upgrade which will work in tandem with the proximity mine to keep an eye on who is sneaking up behind you.
With this loadout, you should be a premier long-range sharpshooter with the Lachmann-556. So, now you are decked out with the best Lachmann-556 loadout in Modern Warfare 2, why not take a look at some of our other tips?
