The Crossbow is officially the newest weapon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. The Path of the Ronin event fully unlocked and allowed players to unlock the Crossbow by completing all of the challenges in the event. Once players accomplish that task in Season 2, they have full access to the Crossbow in multiplayer and battle royale. Unlike other games, though, the Crossbow actually has some attachments, which means players need to level it up to equip its best loadout in Modern Warfare 2.
As always, the Crossbow is more of a gimmick weapon that an actual meta choice. While some Warzone fans will stand by the Crossbow as a meta weapon, MW2 players will find that they need to use the Crossbow in a specific way to even manage a few kills with it. Luckily, there are a few attachments to make the Crossbow even more usable in MW2.
To see the full loadout for the Crossbow in Modern Warfare 2, keep reading below.
Best Crossbow loadout in Modern Warfare 2
- Arms: SO Momenti
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
- Wire: 28-Strand Cable
- Stock: Speedtrak Echo
As players might expect, some of the attachments here look nothing like they do for any other gun in multiplayer. The two normal attachments are the VLK LZR 7mW laser, which boosts aim down sights speed and sprint-to-fire time, and the Cronen Mini Pro, a basic red dot sight. If players want a larger scope for some long-range fun, they can easily swap out the Cronen Mini Pro for a 4x optic.
The rest of the attachments help players boost their damage range and accuracy, both of which are crucial for players who want to try and one-shot kill their enemies. However, don’t expect to out-gun many assault rifles or submachine gun players, even with these attachments.
