Best BAS-P loadout for Modern Warfare 2

The BAS-P is one of the new weapons in Modern Warfare 2 Season 1, so we’ve put together the best loadout with attachments and Perks.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 adds the brand-new BAS-P SMG into the mix, shaking up the close-range meta early in the game’s lifecycle. We’ve got the best BAS-P loadout in Modern Warfare 2, including the ideal attachments and Perks.

The Season 1 update for Modern Warfare 2 brings a host of new content to Infinity Ward’s latest game. Fans can now play the classic Shoot House map in multiplayer, and Tier 1 Hardcore playlists have finally been added.

It also brings plenty of new weapons for players to try out, including the BAS-P SMG. The devs describe it as a gun with an “aggressive fire rate and modular frame” that could become a strong choice in the close-range meta.

We’ve got the best BAS-P loadout in Modern Warfare 2, which will show off the top attachments, Perks, and equipment to make the new SMG one of the game’s best.

Best Modern Warfare 2 BAS-P loadout attachments

  • Barrel: 10.5″ Bruen Typhon
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

Kicking off our best BAS-P loadout for Modern Warfare 2 is the 10.5″ Bruen Typhon Barrel. This option boosts the SMG’s damage range and bullet velocity, while also suppressing its shots for stealthy gameplay.

It’s important to be quick off the draw with an SMG, so the VLK LZR 7MW Laser will increase the ADS and sprint-to-fire speed, as well as general aiming stability. We’ve paired this with the FSS Sharkfin 90 for even more stability, making the BAS-P more effective at mid-range.

With such a quick fire rate, the BAS-P does suffer a little with recoil, but the D37 Grip goes a long way toward keeping it under control. Finally, we’ve got 50 Round Drums for extra ammo capacity, making sure you always have enough bullets to deal with multiple enemies.

Best Modern Warfare 2 BAS-P Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Base Perk 2: Tracker
  • Bonus Perk: Hardline
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Snapshot Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

You’ll most likely be tearing around the map with the BAS-P in Modern Warfare 2, so the Battle Hardened Perk will help you tank any explosives that would normally stop a killstreak dead. Meanwhile, pairing it with Tracker will make it easier to find enemies by following their trail.

In the Bonus slot, we’ve got Hardline, reducing the number of kills needed for Killstreaks, meaning you can turn the tide of a match with useful UAVs and air support. Ghost is also a vital Perk for this loadout, keeping you off the radar to open up flanking opportunities.

Rounding the best BAS-P loadout is Semtex, Snapshot Grenades, and Dead Silence. Semtex is ideal for clearing objectives quickly, Snapshots is a ticket to free wallhacks, while Dead Silence lets you move around the map silently for a short period.

How to unlock the BAS-P in Modern Warfare 2

The BAS-P is unlocked via the Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Battle Pass, and is earned by completing Sector A6.

First, you’ll have to use four Tokens to get the lower rewards from that Sector, before using a fifth to claim the BAS-P and add it to your arsenal.

Best BAS-P alternatives in Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 is crammed full of top SMGs, so we recommend switching to the Lachmann Sub MP5 or Fennec 45 if the BAS-P isn’t working out.

On the other hand, there’s FSS Hurricane, which is still classed as an SMG but feels much more like an Assault Rifle.
