Best Modern Warfare 2 Sniper Rifles
6. LA-B 330
The LA-B 330 is a traditional Call of Duty Sniper Rifle that performs well in almost any given situation, whether you want to quickscope or snipe from range.
While it doesn’t quite match up to some of our other choices, it’s still a more than viable Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2, and well worth a shot if you haven’t tried it already.
5. Victus XMR
Modern Warfare 2’s Victus XMR is a great Sniper Rifle at range, but it’s not particularly mobile. That’s not to say it’s a bad option. You won’t feel too sluggish, and it has high bullet velocity, so you won’t have any trouble landing those far-off headshots.
It packs a mean punch for those players happy to hunker down in a building and methodically pick off enemies. However, there are certainly better options further down this list.
In fourth place, we have the MCPR-300, which is the first Sniper that’s unlocked for players in Modern Warfare 2.
While this is a reliable Sniper with high damage and great handling, it’s pretty slow which makes it lose to some of the other Sniper Rifles on this list. That said, it’s still a great choice for Ground War and Invasion.

3. Signal 50
The Signal 50 comes in at third place thanks to its one-shot potential and incredibly fast fire rate. While it’s a heavy-duty .50 caliber Sniper, it can be built for a surprising amount of speed and its fire rate makes it especially powerful.
It’s essentially semi-automatic but has no recoil between shots, allowing you to take down several targets in extremely quick succession.
2. FJX Imperium
Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 introduced the FJX Imperium Sniper Rifle, which is this game’s version of the classic Intervention, a fan-favorite back in the original MW2. This weapon comes in second place and is the most popular Sniper Rifle in the game.
This weapon is fast and powerful, capable of taking out enemies with a single shot when aiming at their heads.
1. SP-X 80 – Best Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2
The SP-X 80 is Modern Warfare 2’s best Sniper, having everything you could ever want from a quickscoping loadout.
Whether you want fast ADS speed to snap onto enemies, or high bullet velocity to snipe players from a distance, the SP-X 80 has it all. Its fast fire rate and aim-down-sight speed make it versatile for all multiplayer map sizes.
This is the Sniper to use if you want to quickscope enemies in a dramatic fashion, allowing you to run around maps armed with a one-shot machine. That’s all for the best Snipers to use in Modern Warfare 2.
