The .50 GS is one of the more common secondary weapons you will see in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, mainly thanks to its notoriety within the community. After some post-launch buffs, the .50 GS is a capable pistol that players can use to their advantage in a multitude of situations. However, if players really want to get the most out of the .50 GS in Modern Warfare 2, they need to use its strongest loadout.
Best .50 GS loadout in Modern Warfare 2
- Barrel: SA Tyrant Fifty
- Laser: FJX DIOD-70
- Trigger Action: SA Hare Trigger
- Magazine: 13 Round Mag
- Rear Grip: GS .50 Wood Grain
The SA Tyrant Fifty barrel was recently buffed by increasing its damage range, so we had to throw it on the loadout. Players also get a bump in their magazine size with the 13 Round Mag. The rest of the loadout is focused on improving the .50 GS’ mobility so players can get their gun up faster and land shots onto enemies quicker.
Best .50 GS class setup in Modern Warfare 2
If you want to completely fill out your class setup for the .50 GS in MW2, you can look below for recommendations on perks and equipment.
- Base Perks – Double Time, Bomb Squad
- Bonus Perk – Focus
- Ultimate Perk – Ghost
- Lethal – Drill Charge
- Tactical – Stun Grenade
The perks we’ve chosen are Double Time and Bomb Squad to allow players to run faster and survive explosions. Focus is the Bonus Perk pick due to the .50 GS’ tendency to kick when being shot at. The Ultimate Perk is Ghost so players can stay off of the radar when a UAV is in the air.
Finally, our lethal equipment pick is the Drill Charge to flush enemies out of spots and the tactical choice is the basic Stun Grenade to get some easy kills on players who are affected by it.
