For as long as Call of Duty has been in the public eye, quickscoping has been one of the more popular ways to play the game. Whether that’s been in traditional multiplayer or battle royale, the mechanic of quickscoping has been prevalent in every facet of the game. The mechanic simply involves players using a sniper, aiming in slightly, and then hitting an opponent before they fully aim down sights. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, quickscoping is better than ever, with several snipers in the mix. However, there is one sniper and one loadout that quickscoping players should be using above all others in Modern Warfare 2.
While some players might argue that a marksman rifle, such as the SA-B 50, is a better quickscoping option than a traditional sniper, those weapons are more inconsistent in terms of damage. Of course, if players can hit headshots every time they shoot, then a marksman rifle might be the way to go for quickscoping. However, players that don’t want as many hitmarkers from hitting below the head will benefit from a regular sniper.

Best quickscoping loadout in Modern Warfare 2
The overall best sniper to use for quickscoping in MW2 is the SP-X 80. While the LA-B 330 has a slightly faster mobility profile, the SP-X 80 has much stronger damage and range. This will allow players to get one-shot kills much more consistently while still having great mobility.
- Barrel: 22.5″ Elevate-11
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
- Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock
- Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
One of the other benefits to using the SP-X 80 is you don’t have to change its scope. The SP-X 80 comes with a terrific scope by default, freeing up an attachment slot. The attachments included on the loadout all increase mobility in one way or the other. Players will see drastic improvements to their aim down sights speed and sprint-to-fire time using this SP-X 80 loadout, making it perfect for quickscoping.
