When it comes to long-range combat in Modern Warfare 2, you could do a lot worse than the MCPR-300 sniper rifle. This modular weapon is as versatile as they come and you should be able to tweak it to suit to gameplay style easily. However, if you’re looking for the absolute best Modern Warfare 2 MCPR-300 loadout you’re in the right place.
With the right attachments, the MCPR-300 could easily be considered one of the best sniper rifles in Modern Warfare 2 and best guns and weapons, in the right hands, anyway. The advanced Gunsmith system and detailed weapon customisation features in play certainly help when sorting out the MCPR-300 itself, but there are other things to consider when it comes to the class.
Modern Warfare 2 MCPR-300 loadout
Alright, for the MCPR-300 itself you want to focus on the core of what makes it stand out as a sniper rifle. The best Modern Warfare 2 MCPR-300 loadout is:
- Receiver: MCPR-300
- Stock: FSS Merc Stock
- Rear Grip: Cronen Cheetah Grip
- Barrel: 22″ OMX-456
- Ammunition: .300 Mag High Velocity
- Magazine: 5 Round Mag
This build comes from Atlanta FaZe’s head coach, John ‘2Pac’ Hartley, and it’s as beastly as it sounds. This loadout takes all the best bits of the MCPR-300 and enhances them, making this a one hit kill weapon, regardless of where you tag them. This puts it up there to be one of the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts, especially for a sniper rifle.
The FSS Merc Stock improves the gun’s overall mobility, making notable improvements to your crouch movement speed, your sprint speed, and your ADS speed. The Cronen Cheetah Grip improves your sprint to fire speed and your ADS speed.
The barrel – arguably the most important part of this build – improves your bullet velocity, damage range, recoil control, and hip fire accuracy, while the .300 Mag High Velocity ammunition bolsters the increased bullet velocity.
In the mag slot, 2Pac has opted for a five round mag, as this helps the gun’s overall mobility and handling stats when compared with the 15 round mag. However, you can switch that out for 15 round if you find you whiff a few shots – just be aware that you won’t be as agile with the MCPR-300 in your hands.
All these attachments combined mean the gun is built for long-range accurate engagements, and at this point in the game, you won’t find a better Modern Warfare 2 sniper rifle.
Modern Warfare 2 MCPR-300 class setup
When it comes to the rest of this MCPR-300 class, we’re going to start out with the secondary weapon – and there’s really only one option at the moment. You’re going to want to equip the X13 Auto on this loadout. It’s fast-firing and the perfect sidearm to accompany a long-range weapon like this sniper rifle.
Looking at the base perk slot, you’re going to want to choose both Scavenger and Battle Hardened. For a class where you could be sitting around in one spot for quite some time, Scavenger is going to help you keep your ammunition topped up when you get a little low. In addition to this, Battle Hardened is going to help improve your chances in a fight if someone tosses a Flashbang – or something similar – at you.
Moving onto the bonus perk slot, Spotter is the best option. This is going to help you spot enemy equipment and field upgrades when you’re rotating, but it’s also going to let you hack them. If you see a rogue Claymore without its owner, why not hack it and use it to cover your own tracks.
Finally, Ghost is the best option when it comes to the ultimate perk slot for this MCPR-300 class. It’s going to keep you off the radar when it comes to UAVs, Portable Radar scans, and Heartbeat Sensors – something invaluable when you’re trying to rack up kills and get that elusive MGB tactical nuke in-game.
As for the equipment you’re going to want to use with this class, we think Semtex and Stun Grenades are still the best options. This is going to help you deal precision explosive damage from a distance – because Semtex doesn’t roll like a Frag Grenade – and Stuns will help buy you some time if someone tries to push you. We also recommend using a Trophy system as your field upgrade. This is going to protect you from any oncoming throwables when you’re sitting in your makeshift sniper’s nest.
Well, that’s all there is to it, really – everything you need to know about setting up the best Modern Warfare 2 MCPR-300 loadout which allows it to stand out. If you’re looking for something else, you can check out our guide on how to unlock all the weapons right here.
