It’s safe to say that there are two dominant weapons currently running the meta in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play. If you’ve played any Ranked or watched the Call of Duty League in any capacity, then you know the TAQ-56 and Vaznev-9K are the meta choices. However, some players have been cooling down on those two guns, as that’s all that they or anyone else uses. As a result, players have been looking for some off-meta weapons to use in Ranked. If you fall into this crowd, we recommend trying out the PDSW 58 submachine gun and its best overall loadout for Ranked Play.
The PDSW 58 is a replica of the P90 from previous Modern Warfare games and it has a decent multiplayer loadout. However, in Ranked, players need to use other attachments that prioritize stats like accuracy and mobility. In addition to that, some of the PDSW 58’s best attachments are banned in Ranked, meaning players can’t just copy and paste their regular multiplayer loadout.
To see the full loadout for thePDSW 58 in Ranked Play, keep reading below.
Best PDSW 58 loadout for MW2 Ranked Play
- Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
- Stock: CQB Stock
- Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip
- Comb: TV TACCOMB
This loadout focuses on a couple of different stats. First up, there is the Bruen Pendulum muzzle, which reduces both horizontal and vertical recoil at the cost of mobility. Next, there is the STIP-40 Grip, which also boosts recoil control.
The next two attachments make up any lost mobility. The CQB Stock and TV TACCOMB both boosts aim down sights time and sprint-to-fire speed, giving players a nice improvement in mobility. While this PDSW 58 loadout won’t be quicker than a Vaznev-9K or more lethal at range than a TAQ-56, it will be able to do some damage in Ranked Play.
