If you’re sitting there wondering how to put together the best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 loadout, you’re not alone. There are so many options when it comes to weapon attachments, perk setups, secondary weapons, and equipment items in Modern Warfare 2. It can be a little overwhelming if you try to think about it all at once. But, keep reading and we’ll talk you through everything you need to know about this class.

If you’re someone who knows about how to unlock all the Modern Warfare 2 guns, you’ll know that it’s going to take a moment to get your hands on the SP-X 80. However, when you do, you’ll find yourself with access to one of the best sniper rifles in the game right now. It really is a weapon you’re going to want to use.

So, without further ado, let’s get stuck in and talk about the SP-X 80 itself. Here’s everything you need to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X loadout, thanks to Call of Duty content creator Luke ‘FaZe Scope‘ Sharretts:

  • Receiver: SP-X 80
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
  • Stock: Max DMR Precision
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ BOX IV
  • Barrel: 18.5″ Bryson LR Factory

First things first, you’re going to want to look at the 18.5″ Bryson LR Factory barrel attachment. This is going to increase your aim down sight speed dramatically – something that will help you still make use of this sniper rifle in a tight spot. This aim down sight speed is built upon by the Max DMR Precision stock attachment, the Schlager Match Grip, and the Schlager PEQ BOX IV laser attachment.

When you add the FSS ST87 Bolt to this sniper rifle, you’ll find an increased rechamber speed that only increased the speed of this weapon further. We know this attachment setup does take away from the max damage range and recoil control this sniper rifle offers, but you should find it’s still more than effective at longer ranges.

We know it’s going to take a bit of practice to land those longer-range shots, but with this selection of attachments, you should be looking at one of the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts out there when it comes to sniper rifles.

When it comes to a secondary weapon, we think the Lachmann Sub is one of the best sniper support options in Modern Warfare 2. It’s certainly one of the best SMGs in the game right now and well worth checking out – which you can do in our guide to the best Modern Warfare 2 Lachmann Sub loadout right here. If you don’t have this weapon unlocked yet, using this best Modern Warfare 2 VEL 46 loadout is far from a bad choice.

When it comes to this class’ perk setup, you’re going to want to use Overkill (as you might already expect) and Battle Hardned in the base perk slots. Battle Hardened is going to protect you from the effects of enemy grenades – something you might find yourself facing a lot of if you’re sitting in one spot.

In the bonus perk slot, we recommend using Resupply and in the ultimate perk slot, Bird’s Eye is the way forward. This is going to help you see everything on the minimap – which will protect you and make you more effective from your sniper’s nest.

As for Resupply? Well, that will let you use more equipment items over an extended lifetime. So, we recommend taking Claymores and Shock Sticks with you into battle and using these throughout your in-game life to protect yourself while sniping. The final equipment item we recommend is the Portable Radar field upgrade – which can be used to keep tabs on anyone trying to sneak up behind you.

But, that’s all there is to it! We know the new Gunsmith system is a little strange, but this should help you work out what you need to equip and where. While you’re here, you should check out our guide on getting all the mastery camos in Modern Warfare 2 – they’d probably look quite nice nice on your new SP-X 80 build.
