Are you excited to jump into Modern Warfare 2 or maybe you have already jumped in but feel you’re getting outmatched by better weapons? In this guide, we are going to go through the best weapons in Modern Warfare 2 on Day 1.

We have also listed the attachments for the weapon and linked to the best loadout for that weapon as well. Use one of these and you will have an amazing experience in the early days of MW2.

While everyone else is figuring out what weapons to use, you can jump in with these overpowered weapons.

Meta Weapons In Modern Warfare 2

Going into Day 1 of Modern Warfare 2 these are the current best weapons in the game:

  • M4
  • Lachmann 556
  • FSS Hurricane
  • Lachmann Sub
  • FTAC Recon

Let’s take a look at the class setups for each of these weapons.

Best Weapons in Modern Warfare 2 – Assault Rifle M4

Best Weapons in Modern Warfare 2 - Assault Rifle M4

MW2 has a range of powerful Assault rifles but the M4 is one of the best weapons in modern warfare 2. The below setup has very little recoil and has high damage. Combine it with this class setup for a camping style of gameplay and you’ll be sure to drop some high streaks.

Best Assault Rifle #2 – Lachmann 556

Best Lachmann 556 Loadout

The Lachmann 556 is a great choice of Assault rifle early in the game. With the below attachments, it reminds me of the Grau from Modern Warfare. If you like it you will love running this set up.

Best SMG #1 – FSS Hurricane

Best FSS Hurricane Loadout

The FSS Hurricane is one of the most powerful SMGs in Modern Warfare 2 at launch. This thing absolutely shreds through enemies and is my favourite weapon for a run-and-gun class setup. The attachments below combined with this loadout will make an unstoppable rushing class.

Best SMG #2 – Lachmann Sub

Best Lachmann Sub Loadout

The Lachmann Sub is the MP5 of Modern Warfare 2 and it’s a super powerful weapon. Again, if you love to run and gun and get into close-quarters, hip-fire battles, I highly recommend checking out this weapon with the attachments below:

Best Battle Rifle – FTAC Recon

Best FTAC Recon Loadout MW2

The FTAC Recon is a powerful Battle Rifle in Modern Warfare 2. If you want to unlock the FSS Hurricane you will have to use this weapon. While not everyone likes battle rifles, this thing can do damage. Using the attachments below makes this weapon a one-shot TTK when getting headshots.
