For this Modern Warfare 2 Cronen Squall loadout, we’ve opted for the Lockgrip Precision-40 in order to help with recoil steadiness and aim walking steadiness. To balance out the loss in aim-down-sight speed, the FSS OLE-V Laser is a must.

The base magazine size of 20 is just not enough, so the 50 Round Drum is a great attachment to have. Next, the 6.8 High Velocity ammunition means that your bullet velocity will greatly increase, allowing you to hit targets faster at range.

Lastly, the XTEN Grip is perfect for giving the Cronen Squall a boost in sprint-to-fire and aim-down-sight speeds.
