Modern Warfare 2 has brought a new set of weapons to the table and finding the best weapons can be a struggle. Our guide aims to simplify that and keep you one step ahead of the competition.
Modern Warfare 2 is here and the first meta of the game is starting to take shape. While there’s still a lot we haven’t seen, there are a few strong weapons that have become clear favorites early on.
This meta will look familiar to fans of the series, especially to anyone who played the previous Modern Warfare or who fell into Verdansk’s nascent days of Warzone.
Best Weapons in Modern Warfare 2 Beta
The early favorite across the community was the M4 and it’s easy to see why. With a generous amount of kickback and a quick TTK, this franchise staple looks like it’s ready for another big year.
While it doesn’t work exactly like its 2019 counterpart, it’s arguably as effective as it once was, provided you have the right gear.
Meta M4 gear in MW2 beta
This M4 is a long range threat, but can also handle closer missions without too much effort.
- walk: Tempus Hightower 20″ Loop
- Laser: 4MW laser box
- optics: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- stock: Demo Fade Pro Stock
- rear handle: XTEN handle
- Receiver: M4
Meta Lachmann Sub (MP5) Modern Warfare 2 Gear
The Lachmann Sub is by far the best SMG option available in the beta. While the process of unlocking it is a bit tricky at this point, once you’ve got it in your hand, it’s easy to see why this one stands out.
It features unparalleled TTK and doesn’t take long to get used to it, so if you want to play more aggressively than the M4 allows, this is the pick for you.
The Lachmann Sub (or the MP5 as most people will call it) is back and just as dominant as it was in MW 2019.
- Ammunition: 9mm hollow point
- Barrel: L38 Falcon 226mm Barrel
- Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
- Receiver: Lachmann Sub (Lachman 556)
- Stock: no stock
- Bottom: Lockgrip Precision 40
These are the two standout gear so far, but we’ll keep this page updated for all the latest meta tweaks.
