Modern Warfare 2 has a host of Marksman Rifles to choose from, and the SA-B 50 is one of the more deadly options. Here’s the best SA-B 50 loadout to use in Modern Warfare 2, including attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Modern Warfare 2 has a bunch of Marksman Rifles to satisfy those who love single-fire high-damage weapons, especially when it comes to quickscoping.

While the SPR-208 and SP-X 80 have both gained the attention of the community, the SA-B 50 is an underrated option that can compete with the best Snipers and Marksman Rifles in the game.

That said, here’s the best SA-B 50 loadout to use in Modern Warfare 2, including the attachments to use and how to unlock the weapon.

Best Modern Warfare 2 SA-B 50 loadout attachments

  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
  • Stock: XRK Specter Mod
  • Optic: FTAC Charlie7

For the SA-B 50, we’ve found that leaving the barrel and muzzle attachments empty brings the best results while increasing the weapon’s mobility with the XRK Specter Mod and Schlager Match Grip.

To give the SA-B 50 an aim down sight speed boost without any negative repercussions, we’re using the Schlager PEQ Box IV laser attachment. The FSS ST87 Bolt is essential for speeding up the rate at which you can fire the weapon, as it increases the rechambering speed.

As for the Optic, the FTAC Charlie7 provides a clean 7.5x magnification, which is a great balance for both medium to long-range gunfights.

Best Perks & Equipment for Modern Warfare 2 SA-B 50 loadout

  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Focus
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Molotov Cocktail
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

We’ve gone with Bomb Squad for protection against enemy Lethal Equipment, which are very strong in Modern Warfare 2. We’ve also opted for Overkill as the SA-B is not the most versatile weapon. An SMG like the Lachmann Sub will cover close-range engagements.

For the Bonus Perk, Focus provides reduced flinch when aiming down sights with the SA-B and extended Hold Breath duration. As for the Ultimate Perk, Ghost will keep you off the radar, allowing you to take up sneaky positions and snipe from afar.

When it comes to Equipment, you can’t go wrong with Stun Grenades, as they’ll efficiently slow down your enemies to get your shots off. The Molotov Cocktail is a great Lethal to use for crowd control and getting enemies out of positions of power.

The Dead Silence Field Upgrade will let you get around without being noticed, keeping your footsteps quiet.

How to unlock the SA-B 50 in Modern Warfare 2

You will need to reach Rank 7 to unlock the SP-R 208 first, then rank the SP-R 208 up to level 13 to unlock the SA-B 50 in Modern Warfare 2.

The SA-B 50 is part of the Bryson Long Rifle weapon platform, which hosts some of the best Snipers in the game.

Best SA-B 50 alternatives in Modern Warfare 2

The LA-B 330 is a nice alternative to the SA-B 50, as it is essentially its Sniper counterpart. Another great alternative is the SPR-208, which is the first weapon in the Bryson Long Rifle platforms.

If you’re looking for something with a faster fire rate, the FTAC Recon Battle Rifle might be for you.
