MX Guardian Shotgun in Modern Warfare 2Activision

The MX Guardian continues to dominate in Modern Warfare 2 Season 5, armed with its unrivaled full-auto capabilities. Here’s everything you need to build the best MX Guardian loadout for Modern Warfare 2 Season 5, including attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

A new Call of Duty update usually means new weapons, and while Modern Warfare 2 Season 5 hasn’t added a new shotgun to the current lineup, we did get a new explosive shotgun in Season 4. The MX Guardian Shotgun is a fully automatic Shotgun that devastates Modern Warfare 2‘s close-range meta, so you’ll want to ensure you have everything you need to create the best loadout.

Here’s the best MX Guardian loadout in Modern Warfare 2 including attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best Modern Warfare 2 MX Guardian loadout attachments

  • Barrel: MX-G Mobile
  • Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser
  • Stock: MX DCP-0
  • Rear Grip: XRK Rush
  • Ammunition: MX Pro Mag

We’ve built the best Modern Warfare 2 MX Guardian loadout to take advantage of its hip-fire capabilities, letting you rapidly kill enemies without the need to aim.

The MX-G Mobile barrel helps with movement speed, damage range, and hip-fire accuracy, while the Schlager ULO-66 Laser further helps with your aim from the hip.

Then, combining the MX DCP-0 Stock, XRK Rush Rear Grip, and MX Pro Mag will significantly boost your movement speed, allowing you to dart around the map while firing off a ton of Shotgun shells. You’ll find a slow ADS speed with this build so stick to close range where hip-fire can dominate.

For Equipment, Flash Grenades will blind your opponents for a quick and easy kill, and Semtex deals solid splash damage to gain the upper hand.
