The PDSW SMG in Modern Warfare 2 is an extremely powerful choice that is reminiscent of the P-90 from previous Call of Duty games. For those interested in using this versatile SMG, here’s the best PDSW 528 loadout to use in Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 Reloaded.

Modern Warfare 2 brought back some absolutely classic weapons and maps from the iconic franchise, which were meant to pull on the heartstrings of those OG Call of Duty fans.

The PDSW 528 is one of nine SMGs in MW2.
  • Barrel: 17″ Corvus Prorange
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
  • Stock: CQB Stock
  • Rail: Integrated Reflex Rail
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip

The 17″ Corvus Prorange barrel gives Modern Warfare 2 players plenty of benefits including extra recoil control, damage range, bullet velocity, and hip fire accuracy.

We’ve also opted for the CQB Stock and VLK LZR 7mw laser, which supplies further mobility, with increased crouched movement, sprint speed, sprint to fire speed, and ADS speed. The Integrated Reflex Rail is a nice clean sight that allows players to stay on target without too much impact on the ADS speed.

Finally, the Bruen Q900 Grip is a great pick for winning gun battles, as it boosts the PDSW 528’s ADS speed and sprint to fire speed further, allowing you to consistently get your shots off first.

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

First off, Bomb Squad is a great Perk for making sure you stay alive in situations where explosives are being chucked around, which tends to happen a lot in Modern Warfare 2.

Further, the Battle Hardened Perk will work nicely with it, as this will protect you against Tacticals like Flash Grenades and Stuns. We’ve then opted for Fast Hands so that you can reload your weapon fast and stay in the fight, as well as Quick Fix for the Ultimate Perk to help with the same motive.

We’ve chosen the Semtex and Flash Grenade for Lethal and Tactical equipment in this loadout, as both are solid options for taking advantage of the enemy. Lastly, we have the Dead Silence Field Upgrade, which is perfect for run-and-gun SMG playstyles.
