Modern Warfare 2 has some great Assault Rifles to choose from, and the STB 556 is one of the best, especially with these attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Modern Warfare 2 has an abundance of guns to choose from with the new Weapon Platform system.

Those who enjoy Assualt Rifles in Call of Duty multiplayer games will be in heaven for Modern Warfare 2, as there are many good options. One of the best ARs to choose in MW2 is the STB 556, which is reminiscent of the AUG from previous games.

The STB 556 is the first weapon that’s unlocked in the Bruen Bullpup platform. Here’s the best loadout for the Modern Warfare 2 STB 556, including the optimal attachments, Perks, and Equipment to use.

Best Modern Warfare 2 STB 556 loadout attachments

  • Barrel: 18″ Bruen Guerilla
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Underbarrel: FFS Sharkfin 90

The 18″ Bruen Guerilla barrel is great for extending this weapon’s bullet velocity, allowing you to get the first shot off while also helping with some recoil control.

In order to balance out the aim down sight speed lost with the barrel, the VLK LZR 7MW laser will increase the STB 556’s mobility, but beware as the laser is visible to enemies while aiming down sights.

For even more recoil control, the STIP-40 Grip is a great choice, especially when coupled with the FFS Sharkfin 90 underbarrel which provides some aiming stability.

Lastly, the 5.56 High Velocity ammunition further increases the weapon’s bullet velocity, ensuring you get the first hit on your target.

Best Modern Warfare 2 STB 556 loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix/Ghost
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

First up, we’ve chosen Bomb Squad for protection against explosives, which are very strong in Modern Warfare 2. We’ve also opted for Battle Hardened, for even more protection against enemy Flash, Stuns, Shock Sticks, EMPs, Gas Grenades, and Snapshot Grenades.

As for the Bonus and Ultimate Perk, Fast Hands and Quick Fix will keep you in the fight, but if you prefer to stay hidden, Ghost is another great option.

As for Equipment, Flash Grenades are extremely strong and useful for breaching areas, while you can’t go wrong with the Drill Charge, which is also great for clearing rooms.
