If you’ve played any Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer so far, then you’ve likely been the victim of a marksman rifle. These more mobile snipers have been extremely popular since the beginning of MW2’s life cycle. Players have loved the quickness of the rifles and their ability to perform just as well as traditional snipers in terms of damage output. One of the more popular marksman rifles in Modern Warfare 2 has been the SP-R 208, which has a deadly loadout.
The SP-R 208 is a returning weapon from Modern Warfare 2019. It hasn’t changed much in MW2, but it might be a little more lethal in this game, which has led to its growing popularity with the sniping community. There aren’t many downsides to using the SP-R, but if we had to nitpick, fire rate and damage range could be improved. Luckily, there’s a specific loadout for the SP-R 208 that does just that.
Best SP-R 208 loadout in Modern Warfare 2
The SP-R 208 has the ability to one-shot kill enemies, but it will require a near headshot. However, as players start to target enemies from farther away, one-shot kills begin to become an issue for the SP-R 208. The recommended loadout for the marksman rifle aims to fix those issues and give it some extra firepower.
- Barrel: 23.5″ Fluted R-67
- Laser: 1mW Laser Box
- Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
- Magazine: 10 Round Mag
The loadout starts out with the 23.5″ Fluted R-67 barrel, which offers the SP-R 208 some much-needed damage range as well as bullet velocity and movement speed.
Next, we have the FSS ST87 Bolt, which gives the marksman rifle added rechambering speed, which essentially means players can fire each shot faster. The rest of the loadout, with the exception of the 10 Round Mag, focuses on mobility so players can be even speedier when using the SP-R.
