The current meta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play calls for the TAQ-56 and Vaznev-9K as the primary weapons. These are the guns that all Call of Duty League professionals use and they are the two best guns in their respective classes. However, over the past couple of weeks, players have begun to grow tired of the same exact weapons every single match. As such, some fans have started to experiment with off-meta guns. If you want to begin or continue experimenting, we recommend the MX9 and its strongest loadout for Ranked Play.

The MX9 has received some buffs in recent MW2 updates, and as a result, it’s a much more balanced submachine gun in the latter half of 2023. Not only does the MX9 sport some of the best mobility in the SMG class, but it has a terrific damage profile and can be highly accurate with the right attachments.

To see the full loadout for the MX9 in Ranked Play, keep reading below.

Best MX9 loadout for MW2 Ranked Play

  • Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
  • Barrel: 508mm Rear Guard
  • Comb: FTAC C11 Riser
  • Magazine: 32 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

This loadout emphasizes both close and mid-range gunfights. The first two attachments, the Bruen Pendulum and 508mm Rear Guard barrel, increase recoil control and damage range but they both come at the cost of mobility. Luckily, I have the FTAC C11 Riser and the Bruen Q900 Grip equipped to improve aim down sights speed and sprint-to-fire time to mitigate those losses. Finally, there is the 32 Round Mag, which is important seeing as the MX9 doesn’t come with the largest magazine by default.

If you want to swap out any of the attachments for another, I recommend going for an optic such as the Cronen Mini Pro or the Slimline Pro. The MX9 doesn’t have the best iron sights but they’re good enough to use in Ranked. Moreover, you should be mainly using the MX9 at close range to avoid the TAQ-56s of the world at longer ranges.
