The M13B is an assault rifle that you either never touch in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer or you want to use it all the time. Fans of the gun were thrilled to see it enter the game with Season 1 of MW2, but it’s not the best overall weapon statistically, which turned others away from it. Regardless of your stance on the M13B, if you’re planning to use it in MW2, you want to ensure you’re using the absolute best loadout.
The M13B is essentially the same weapon as the classic M13 from Modern Warfare 2019. It has roughly the same iron sights as that weapon and behaves almost identically. However, there are a few new mechanics with the new M13 that players should be aware of. For starters, the M13B seems to have more recoil than its predecessor and has slightly less damage. This can make the M13B difficult to use right out of the gate, but it has a set of attachments that can turn it into a terrific AR.

Best loadout for the M13B in MW2
To make the M13B competitive with other assault rifles in MW2, I’m going to be increasing its overall damage range and recoil control. These two stats aren’t the best for the M13B by default, so buffing them will provide a huge boost to the rifle.
- Barrel: 14″ Bruen Echelon
- Muzzle: Echoless-80
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro/SZ Mini/Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Rear Grip: D37 Grip
To start, I have the 14″ Bruen Echelon barrel and the Echoless-80 muzzle. The former increases recoil control, bullet velocity, and damage range while the latter essentially does the same. This means the M13B is getting a significant boost to damage range and recoil control.
Then, there are two more attachments to improve recoil in the FTAC Ripper 56 and D37 Grip. Finally, the Cronen Mini Pro is the optic of choice, but I have added two other alternatives if you don’t like that particular sight.
As a final note, you can use the M13B in the new Modern Warfare 3 and use this same loadout to great effect. However, you will need to change most of the rest of the class, as the perks have been entirely changed in the new multiplayer title. You can still use the same lethal or tactical as well as a similar secondary weapon. Of course, I suggest using some of the new content first so you can experience some of the fresh items in MW3.
