Best Modern Warfare 2 Sniper Rifles ranked list

  1. FJX Imperium
  2. SP-X 80

  4. Signal 50
  5. MCPR-300
  6. Victus XMR

Best Modern Warfare 2 Sniper Rifles

7. LA-B 330

The LA-B 330 is a solid choice for quickscoping in Modern Warfare 2.

The LA-B 330 is a traditional Call of Duty Sniper that performs nicely in nearly any given situation, whether you want to quickscope or snipe from long ranges.

While it doesn’t quite match up to some of our other choices, it’s still a more than viable gun in Modern Warfare 2 and well worth a shot if you haven’t tried it already.

6. Victus XMR

The Victus XMR boasts high bullet velocity in Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2’s Victus XMR is a great Sniper Rifle at range but lacks mobility, which could be a huge factor for players who like to move around the map. However, this gun 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.

5. MCPR-300

The MCPR-300 is unlocked right away in Modern Warfare 2.

In fifth place, we have the MCPR-300, which is the first Sniper that’s unlocked for players in Modern Warfare 2, allowing players to get their hands once they unlock the Create-a-Class option.

While this is a reliable Sniper with high damage and amazing handling, it’s pretty slow which makes it lose to some of the other Sniper Rifles on this list. That said, it still remains a great choice for high player count modes like Ground War and Invasion.

4. Signal 50

Signal 50 Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2
The Signal 50 is one of the best Sniper RIfles in Modern Warfare 2 because of its fast rate.

The Signal 50 comes in at fourth place thanks to its 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.

3. Carrack .300

Carrack .300 Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2
The Carrack .300 stands out as one of the Snipers with the most powerful damage profiles in MW2.

Season 5’s Carrack .300 has carved its way into the top three best Snipers in the game, beating out several competitors who have been unstoppable in previous seasons. Call of Duty veteran players will be familiar with it, as it resembles the original MW2’s WA 2000.

The bullpup, semi-automatic sniper rifle vastly outperforms the original design and dominates long-range engagements with great damage and rapid bullet velocity.

2. SP-X 80

SP-X 80 Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2
The SP-X 80 features fast ADS and high bullet velocity in Modern Warfare 2.

The SP-X 80 is Modern Warfare 2’s takes the second-best Sniper spot, 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.

1. FJX Imperium – Best Sniper Rifle in Modern Warfare 2

The Intervention Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
The Intervention can one-shot kill in Warzone 2 Season 5 Reloaded.

Remaining unreachable in the first spot for several seasons, Modern Warfare 2’s best Sniper is the FJX Imperium. This powerful Sniper may be recognized by veteran players because it’s this game’s version of the classic Intervention, a fan-favorite back in the original MW2 2009.

This gun boasts impressive speed and power, making it highly effective at swiftly eliminating enemies. It excels both as a long-range beast and a powerful close-range option, offering exceptional comfort across various distances.

All in all, that’s all for the best Snipers to use in Modern Warfare 2 Season 6.
