When it comes to picking up a decent submachine gun for your next Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer game, you can do a lot worse than the MX9. This subsonic SMG is going to deal a decent amount of damage at a middling distance – but, it can handle itself in closer quarters too. Sound good? Here’s what you need to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 MX9 loadout and class setup.
With the right attachments, this MX9 build could become one of the best SMGs in Modern Warfare 2 right now. But, that’s not the only thing you need to worry about. You’re going to need to know what the best perks are for this class, and things like which lethals and tacticals to use too.
Best Modern Warfare 2 MX9 loadout
Alright, let’s kick things off by talking about the SMG itself. Here is the best Modern Warfare 2 MX9 loadout out there right now:
- Stock: Bruen STB 556 Stock
- Comb: FTAC C11 Riser
- Muzzle: AVR-T90 Comp
- Underbarrel: Bruen Q900 Grip
- Magazine: 32 Round Mag
Since the best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs are all about frying enemies quickly and efficiently, you’re going to want to set this MX9 up for better recoil, quicker ADS, and improved damage.
To help with that, we’ve selected two core attachments that’ll help with your ADS speed. The Bruen Q900 rear grip improves your sprint to fire speed and your ADS speed, as does the FTAC C11 Riser comb.
While both of these attachments boost the gun’s overall mobility, it does affect recoil control. So, to counter that, we recommend sticking the Bruen STB 556 stock on, which enhances recoil control without reducing the mobility gains as much as the Bruen HCR 56.
Similarly, the AVR-790 Comp helps improve the vertical and horizontal recoil of the gun, smoothing out its recoil pattern so you can keep your shots nice and central.
And in the last slot, we’ve slapped the 32 round mag in. The MX9 comes with 25 round mags as default. Having seven extra shots might not sound like much, but in a fast-faced multiplayer environment, you’ll need all the help you can get.
Best Modern Warfare 2 MX9 class setup
First things first, we need to talk about the secondary weapon you’re going to want to use for this class. The MX9 is great in short-range firefights, but you’re going to want to equip the X13 Auto when it comes to a sidearm. This is great in a pinch and a fantastic weapon to switch to when you need to reload.
If you want to unlock a fully-kitted X13 Auto, you can read up on how to get the Side Impact blueprint for the X13 Auto in Modern Warfare 2 right here.
Looking at the perks, you’re going to want to run Scavenger and Tracker as your base perks. Tracker is going to help you hunt for enemies by highlighting recent footsteps while Scavenger is going to ensure you never quite run out of ammunition while you’re running-and-gunning around.
In the bonus perk slot, we think Hardline is the best option right now. To put it simply, this is going to help you get killstreaks quicker – which, in turn, should get you even more kills while you play. As for the ultimate perk slot, we think Quick Fix is the best option for a class that’s all about adopting a run-and-gun strategy.
Finally, looking at the equipment options available, we think Stun Grenades and Semtex are the best pairing for throwables and something like Dead Silence for your field upgrade is the best choice. We know this has been nerfed a little bit, but it’s still a great way to run around without worrying about being heard.
Well, that’s everything you need to know about the best MX9 build and class setup out there right now. If you want something with a little more range, check out our picks for the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifles here. Either way, this MX9 should help you rank up fast in-game.
