CDL Moshpit is the first taste of competitive play that we’ve been able to access in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. While the developers continue to work on a full-fledged Ranked Play mode, CDL Moshpit is the place players can go to get some competitive practice in using the official CDL ruleset and mapset. If players are thinking of hopping into the playlist, they will need to create some competitive-focused loadouts. For assault rifle players that don’t want to use the M4, we recommend the STB 556, which has a fantastic CDL Moshpit loadout.
The professional players have actually banned the STB 556 amongst themselves, which is why players won’t see the AR used in official CDL matches. This is primarily of because how strong the STB is across the board, especially at close range. However, CDL Moshpit has not restricted the STB, so players are free to use it as much as they wish. For players that want to try out the STB, they need the AR’s best set of attachments to make it worth it over the M4.
Best STB 556 loadout for CDL Moshpit
The competitive loadout for the STB 556 hasn’t been updated by pros since they banned the AR altogether back in November. The old loadout for the AR is still viable in competitive play, though.
- Barrel: 508MM Rear Guard
- Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
- Optic: Slimline Pro
- Underbarrel: Operator Foregrip
- Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip
The loadout is primarily focused on increasing the STB’s recoil control and damage range while sacrificing mobility. Although, the STB already has the best mobility out of any AR, so players aren’t losing much in the way of mobility by using this set of attachments.
