Modern Warfare 2’s X12 is a great secondary option in Ranked Play matches, and you can take full advantages of its capabilities by equipping attachments, Perks & equipment to create the best X12 loadout for Season 3 Reloaded.

There are plenty of powerful weapons to choose from in Modern Warfare 2, including Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, and SMGs. Regardless of what you select, it’s always useful to have a good secondary weapon equipped as well.

The X12 Handgun is the quickest handgun in the Call of Duty title, making it the go-to option for CDL pros in Modern Warfare 2’s Ranked Play. If you want to put together the best loadout for it then we’ve got you covered.

Here is the best X12 loadout for Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 Reloaded.

Best Modern Warfare X12 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: XRK Ventor-900
  • Barrel: XRK LUC-9
  • Trigger Action: XRK Lightning Fire
  • Rear Grip: Cronen LIMA-6

The best Modern Warfare 2 X12 loadout starts by reducing the weapon’s recoil with the help of the XRK Ventor-900 muzzle, allowing you to land your shots with improved accuracy. Next, we use the XRK LUC-9 to buff the weapon’s movement and ADS speed.

Equipping the XRK Lighting Fire will ensure that you’re able to get off consecutive shots extremely fast while showcasing your trigger finger. Finally, the Cronen LIMA-6 Rear Gripp will let you pull out your Handgun faster.
