Marksman Rifles are an underrated class in Modern Warfare 2, and the Lockwood MK2 has emerged as a very strong option. Here’s the best Lockwood MK2 loadout to help you dominate matches, complete with attachments and Perks.

One of the most appealing parts of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer is the sheer number of weapons to choose from. Whether you like running and gunning with an SMG, or picking off enemies with a Sniper Rifle, there’s a weapon in the game for you to use.

Marksman Rifles have also become increasingly popular since the game’s launch, with players loving how powerful and precise they can be. One of the top weapons in class is the Lockwood MK2, thanks to its ability to one-shot enemies at the right range.

We’ve put together the best Lockwood MK2 loadout to use in Modern Warfare 2, along with the ideal attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood MK2 loadout attachments

  • Barrel: Lockwood Frontiersman
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: Cut Off Stock Mod
  • Ammunition: .45 GVT High Velocity
  • Lever: Longhorn Lever

To begin the best Lockwood MK2 loadout in Modern Warfare 2, we’ve picked the Lockwood Frontiersman Barrel. This drastically improves the gun’s ADS speed to make it feel much snappier on close-quarters maps.

This pairs nicely with the VLK LZR 7MW and Cut Off Stock Mod, which also buffs the ADS speed as well as sprint-to-fire speed and general aiming stability. These make the Lockwood MK2 incredibly mobile, making sure you get your shots in before the enemy can react.

When it comes to ammo, we recommend the .45 GVT High Velocity Rounds, which increase bullet velocity at the expense of some damage range. Last up is the Longhorn Lever, which makes rechambering between each shot quicker to give you a fighting chance after a missed shot.

  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

Choosing the right Perks and equipment is vital to creating a loadout, so we’ve outlined the best options to use with the Lockwood MK2. We’ve gone for Scavenger to keep you stocked up with ammo on the go, while Overkill gives you the chance to bring an SMG like the Fennec 45 along for the ride.

In the Bonus Perk slot we recommend Fast Hands, allowing you to switch between your two weapons quickly so you’ve always got the right gun equipped. Then we’ve picked Ghost in the Ultimate spot to hide you from enemy radars to flank effectively.

Equipment-wise, a Semtex is perfect for quickly clearing a room or objective, while Flash Grenades will disorientate the other team while you move in for the kill.

Rounding out the class is Dead Silence, masking your footsteps to allow you to sneak around the map.
