The SP-X 80 Sniper Rifle remains one of the top choices for quick scoping in Modern Warfare 2 Season 5. This guide will unpack the best SP-X 80 loadout, offering you the complete rundown of necessary attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Since the launch of Modern Warfare 2, bolt-action Sniper Rifles have stood out as some of the best weapons in the game. Whether you’re quickscoping or picking off enemies at long range, there’s a Sniper Rifle that’s perfect for you.

One of the best choices for quick scoping is the SP-X 80, which has been praised by top players such as FaZe Booya. If you’re looking to dominate with Sniper Rifles, we have a list of all the attachments, Perks, and Equipment you’ll need to build the best SP-X 80 loadout in Modern Warfare 2 Season 5.

Best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 loadout attachments

The SP-X 80 is a light Sniper Rifle in MW2.
  • Barrel: 16” ZLR Executor 80 Barrel
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Match Grip
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt

The best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 loadout is all about increasing the weapon’s aim down sight (ADS) speed and sprint to fire time, making quickscoping easy.

We’re kicking off this loadout with the 16” ZLR Executor 80 Barrel which increases its ADS speed at the cost of range, so only use this barrel in 6v6. Then, the FSS OLE-V Laser further helps with ADS speed but also sprint to fire, allowing you to dart around the map and snap onto enemies before they can get their gun up.

We’re further helping the SP-X 80’s ADS and sprint to fire speed with the Schlager Match Grip and increasing its fire rate with the FSS ST87 Bolt.

Almost all of these attachments will hurt the SP-X 80’s recoil control, but that’s not something you need to worry about when using a bolt-action rifle.

Best Modern Warfare 2 SP-X 80 Perks & Equipment

Sniping in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer is a popular playstyle.
  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions Box

When building the best SP-X 80 loadout, we can’t recommend anything other than Bomb Squad and Battle Hardened in Modern Warfare 2, as both Stun Grenades and explosives are incredibly powerful.

Fast Hands is the perfect Bonus Perk for Sniper Rifles, and while we’d love to recommend Quick Fix as the Ultimate Perk, Ghost is too important not to use.

Flash Grenades are by far the best equipment in the game, and Drill Charges are perfect for rooting out campers. Finally, we recommend the Munitions Box, as you’ll quickly burn through ammo if on a high Killstreak.

How to unlock SP-X 80 in Modern Warfare 2

It’ll take some time to unlock the SP-X 80 in Modern Warfare 2, as you’ll first need to reach Level 17 with the LA-B 330.

However, thanks to the Platform feature, you’ll also need to rank up both the SP-R 208 and SA-B 50 to unlock them.

Best alternatives to SP-X 80 in Modern Warfare 2
