What is the best Modern Warfare 2 SP-R 208 loadout? If you consider yourself as a bit of a hot shot in Call of Duty’s latest game, then you’re going to want to find out.
The SP-R 208 is a powerful marksman rifle, providing you hit someone in the chest or above. The rifle, which first made its debut in the last Modern Warfare game, is a valuable asset for sharpshooters, especially when it’s fine-tuned with an assortment of attachments. But what is the best setup for this weapon, which is arguably one of the best Modern Warfare 2 guns and best Modern Warfare 2 marksman rifles? You’re about to find out.
SP-R 208 Modern Warfare 2 loadout
The SP-R 208 has dozens of attachments that you can switch in and out over time, but finding the right combination is key to unlocking the gun’s potential. Here’s the best SP-R 208 loadout in Modern Warfare 2:
- Receiver: SP-R 208
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
- Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension
- Laser: 1Mw Laser box
- Barrel: 23.5″ Fluted R-67
- Magazine:10 Round Mag
The SP-R 208 is the deadliest marksman rifle available in the game currently. It’ll one-shot kill most players you tag above the chest, but where it really falls short is on its fire rate. However, you can still create one of the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts with it.
Since the SP-R 208 is a bolt-action rifle, chaining shots together when you miss your first is a nightmare. But with this loadout build, you’ll be back in action in no time at all.
Your first attachment then should be the FSS ST87 Bolt. This prioritises the rechambering speed over rechambering accuracy – something that’s already quite high with the SP-R. Pair this with the ZRL T70 Pad Extension stock, which boosts your crouch movement speed, sprint speed, and ADS speed, and you’ll find the mobility of this gun has already been dramatically improved.
We’ve slapped the 23.5″ barrel on the SP-R here, which increases its damage range, hip fire accuracy, movement speed, and bullet velocity, but if you’re looking for something a bit quicker (and lighter) you can opt for the 12.5″ barrel at the cost of damage and range. Also, the bigger mag keeps you firing for longer, without impacting the mobility too much.
And finally, since the iron sights on this rifle are pretty clean and easy to use, we’ve opted for the 1MW Laser Box to help us fire from the hip a bit easier. This laser grants buffs to both accuracy and recoil control and it can’t be spotted by enemies. It’s also a bit easier to see than the blue STOVL laser.
Best SP-R 208 Modern Warfare 2 class setup
As for secondaries, equipment, and perks, we’ve got you covered. Since the SP-R 2-8 is a bolt-action rifle, we’d advise you to use Overkill to pick a secondary that will actually pack a punch. In this case, we’d recommend one of the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifles – the M4 (you can find our best Modern Warfare 2 M4 loadout here).
This no-nonsense AR has a user-friendly recoil pattern, good range, and plenty of customisation for both long, medium, and short ranges. You can’t really go wrong with picking the M4, to be honest.
Outside of that, we’d recommend Double Time, which doubles the duration of tactical sprint and increase your crouch movement speed by 30% and Overkill for your base perks. For your bonus perk, Fast Hands is a must as it’ll speed up your reloads, and for your Ultimate Perk, Bird’s Eye should be your pick. This will zoom out your minimap, giving you more information at your fingertips, especially when UAVs and Radars kick in.
And last but not least, our lethals and tacticals recommendations. Given you’re going to spend a fair amount of time lining up your shots from a static position with the SP-R, we’d recommend carrying some Claymores with you, as this will help you protect your flank. For tacticals, Stims are a great option as they’ll give you a boost of health if you’re caught between a hard place and a rock.
Alternatively, pairing your Claymores with Stun Grenades will help you go on the offensive in close quarters.
That’s all you need to know about the best SP-R 208 Modern Warfare loadout right now. Of course, there are plenty of other options available in this competitive FPS game, so be prepared to experiment and go out of your comfort zone – you never know what you might stumble upon.
