If you’re looking for precision and power in Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer, you could do a lot worse than the LM-S. This marksman rifle is one of the most accurate available – and can be made even better with the right attachments. So, here’s everything you need to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 LM-S loadout and class setup.
A weapon that could be considered one of the best marksman rifles in Modern Warfare 2, the right LM-S build could rival some of the best sniper rifles in mid-range combat. However, the weapon build is just one part of this class. You’re going to need to choose the best perks and equipment to get the most out of this gun. But, we will go over all of that below.
Best Modern Warfare 2 LM-S loadout
So, without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 LM-S loadout and class build – starting with the marksman rifle itself:
- Optic: SZ Lonewolf Optic
- Stock: FT Mobile Stock
- Rear Grip: LM Cronus Grip
- Muzzle: Polarfire-S
- Underbarrel: Agent Grip
As you can see, these five attachments help boost the range and the accuracy of the LM-S for the most part, while improving the damage and mobility ever so slightly. The gun’s handling is perhaps the thing that comes off the worst here, but we’re looking to make this gun even more devastating from the get go.
The FT Mobile Stock improves your sprint speed, aim walking speed, crouch movement speed, and ADS speed at a small cost to aiming stablity and recoil control. The LM Cronus Grip improves your flinch resistance, while the agent grip improves idle aiming stability and hip fire accuracy.
While the Polarfire-S silencer helps keep you off the minimap, like the true marksman you are, it does also help increase the gun’s bullet velocity, its damage range, and recoil smoothness, which, I’m sure you’ll agree, are decent trade offs.
Finally, in the optics section, we’ve opted for the SZ Lonewolf Optic, purely because it’s a crystal clear holographic sight, but if you want something with extra magnification, the DR582 Hybrid sight is a good option – just be aware it’ll give off a small glint.
Best Modern Warfare 2 LM-S class setup
The first thing you need to think about when it comes to completing this LM-S class is the secondary weapon – and there’s really only one option for a marksman rifle like this; you’re going to want to use the X13 Auto. This fully-automatic pistol has more than enough firepower to get you out of a tight spot – something you might find yourself needing. If you don’t have it already, you can find out how to get the Side Impact blueprint for the X13 Auto in Modern Warfare 2 right here.
As for perks, you’re going to want to look at Scavenger and Tracker when it comes to the base perk slots. Scavenger is going to ensure that you never run out of ammo, which is easier than it sounds when it comes to a marksman rifle, and Tracker is going to help you watch out for enemies running around near you – and hunting those who are trying to run away.
For the bonus perk slot, we recommend checking out Fast Hands. We know the X13 Auto is going to help you when you’re caught short reloading your LM-S, but it can’t hurt to improve your overall reload speed a little more. In the ultimate perk slot, Ghost really is the only option. This is going to keep you off the radar when it comes to UAVs, Portable Radar scans, and Heartbeat Sensors – something that’s useful if you’re trying to hide somewhere with a marksman rifle.
Looking at the selection of equipment on offer, we think Semtex and Stun Grenades are the best combination when it comes to lethals and tacticals. It’s something of a classic pairing that Call of Duty veterans will know well – and there’s a reason they’re so popular. As for this class’ field upgrade, we think something like a Portable Radar might actually be the way forward. This should alert you when someone is sneaking up on you – and it can also be placed in a choke point to see who’s filtering through.
Well, that’s all there is to it. This LM-S loadout could just be one of the best guns in Modern Warfare 2 – in the right hands, anyway. Either way, using this class should help you rank up fast with this weapon.
