If you’re searching for a high-powered Assault Rifle capable of taking down distant enemies in Modern Warfare 2, here’s a guide on the attachments, Perks, and Equipment required to create the best Lachmann-556 loadout.

In Modern Warfare 2, there are 15 Assault Rifles available for players to unlock and level up, and many players tend to favor those with extended range and minimal recoil to efficiently target and eliminate their opponents.

Here are all of the attachments, Perks, and Equipment you need to have the best Lachmann-556 loadout in Modern Warfare 2.

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Barrel: 10.6” Lachstrike Barrel
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: LMK64 Grip
  • Stock: Lachmann S9 Factory

We’re kicking off this Lachmann-556 loadout with the FTAC Castle Comp muzzle and 10.6” Lachstrike Barrel. Combined, they’ll vastly increase the Lachmann-556’s bullet velocity while also helping with recoil control. 

Next, we’ve added the 40-Round Mag, as it’s great for salvaging multiple close-quarter gunfights in popular maps like Shipment and Shoot House. We’ve then gone with the LMK64 Grip, which helps mitigate all that aim-down sight speed we’ve been losing with the previous attachments while also increasing the sprint-to-fire speed.

Finally, we’ve added the Lachmann S9 Factory stock, as it helps with factors like ADS speed, sprint speed, crouch movement speed, and aim walking speed.
