The Modern Warfare 2 beta has arrived and after a few days we’ve already started to see some of the best guns in the game emerge. So if you’re looking to dominate, you can find the best weapons and guns in modern warfare 2 in this article.
From Assault Rifles to fast-firing SMGs, the best weapons and guns in Modern Warfare 2 so far focus on consistency and reliability and the meta has started to be established. Some of these weapons need to be unlocked through the Receiver feature in the Gunsmith or through a menu workaround, but it’s definitely worth doing to get them.
To find out what are some of the best modern warfare 2 weapons during the beta, read on.
Modern Warfare 2 best guns and weapons
Here are our three picks for the best modern warfare 2 weapons:
M4 – best assault rifle
The M4 is our pick for the best assault rifle in Modern Warfare 2 at the moment based on what we can use. Easy to use, reliable, and accurate with a few attachments, the M4 is about as reliable a weapon as you’ll find in any Call of Duty game.
With the best M4 loadout, you can improve recoil, gun kick, and AR accuracy. All of this should help you rack up killstreaks and kills in no time.
Lachmann-556 – best assault rifle
The Lachmann-556 is a solid backup AR in Modern Warfare 2. Although not as reliable as the M4, the Lachmann-556 offers good power and can really hold up in a firefight.
You’ll want a wide range of attachments to improve some of this weapon’s weaknesses, namely accuracy, but with the Fast Hands perks in your loadout, you should be able to top the leaderboard as well. You can’t grab this weapon normally right now, but you can read our guide on how to unlock the Lachmann-556 in the Modern Warfare 2 beta.
Lachmann submarine – best SMG
The Lachmann Sub is the big brother of the Lachmann-556 and it has firmly established itself as the definitive best weapon in the game right now. Accurate, powerful and reliable, the weapon, which is actually an MP5, is capable of carrying you through long killstreaks if you build your best Lachmann Sub loadout correctly.
You can’t actually unlock this weapon the normal way right now, and you need to do a few workarounds. So, for how to unlock MP5 in Modern Warfare 2 beta, check out our guide.
A runner up here is the Kastov-74u. However, since you can’t put attachments in them unless you’re in a match, it doesn’t quite match the ease of use and power that these three weapons currently offer. But, if you want to test it, it is also very strong in the beta version.
So, now that you know what the best weapons and guns in Modern Warfare 2 are, take a look at our other guides that aim to help you out and be successful in the game. These include our guide to the best perks, which lists a few choices you should equip in your base, bonus, and ultimate slots.
