If you’re looking to be your team’s sniper in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play, then you will likely want to use the SP-X 80. While the MCPR 300 has seen some use in the Call of Duty League, a majority of pros will equip the SP-X 80 thanks to its superior mobility. You might get more hitmarkers than you’re used to, but as long you aim for the upper body, those shouldn’t be a problem. However, you will still want to throw on the best loadout for the SP-X 80 to ensure you don’t get out sniped in Ranked Play.
The loadout for the SP-X 80 in competitive play has largely remained the same since MW2 was first released. Players have generally favored mobility attachments over ones that can increase recoil control and damage range. This makes the SP-X 80 a quickscoping threat in Search and Destroy as well as a long-range one.
To see the best SP-X 80 loadout for Ranked Play, keep reading below.
Ranked Play loadout for the SP-X 80 in MW2
- Barrel: 22.5″ Elevate-11 Barrel
- Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock
- Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
All of these attachments improve mobility in one way or the other. The 22.5″ Elevate-11 Barrel adds an increase to base movement speed as well as improving aim down sights time. The rest of the attachments mainly focus on ADS time and sprint-to-fire speed, with the exception of the FSS ST87 Bolt. This attachment increases rechambering speed, which allows you to shoot your gun faster after you fire a bullet.
We have no muzzle or underbarrel equipped due to those attachments weighing down mobility too much. However, if players want to add an extra attachment, they can equip the High Velocity attachment in the Ammunition category. This increases bullet velocity but reduces damage range, so you might see more hitmarkers with it equipped, which is why we left it off our loadout.
