The MX9 stands out as a formidable Submachine Gun in Modern Warfare 2, and optimizing your loadout is crucial for unlocking its full potential. To help you make the most of this weapon, we’ve put together the best MX9 loadout, including Perks, Equipment, and attachments.

In every season of Modern Warfare 2, the game’s extensive arsenal of guns competes to determine the best weapon in the game. The SMG category is particularly powerful, with the MX9 vying for the title against formidable contenders like the Lachmann Sub MP5 and VEL 46, all striving to establish themselves as the game’s best SMG option for players.

Being a bullpup weapon in the AUG family, the MX9 has a lot to live up to considering that its sister weapons, namely the STB 556 and HCR 56 are great weapons with low recoil, moderate damage, and a decent fire rate.

Here’s our best MX9 loadout for Modern Warfare 2.

Best Modern Warfare 2 MX9 loadout attachments

  • Magazine: 32-Round Mag
  • Optic: Slimline Pro
  • Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
  • Stock: Bruen STB 556 Stock

We’re diving straight into our best MX9 loadout for MW2 with the 32-Round Mag as it’s relatively straightforward – we want our ammo to be more powerful than plentiful.

The Slimline Pro is a gorgeous Optic that makes aiming gratifying and easier, while the Schlager ULO-66 Laser is a massive help when it comes to hip-fire accuracy and speed.

To round things off now, the Bruen Q900 Grip is going to help us out in a big way when it comes to recoil, and the Bruen STB 556 Stock is another useful way of boosting the gun’s mobility and accessibility.

Best Modern Warfare 2 MX9 Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Tracker
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal Equipment: Proximity Mine
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

For the best MX9 Perks & Equipment, Tracker will start us off as we love the fact you can see where players have recently been, giving you a chance to sniff out easy kills.

Battle Hardened is essential to combat the onslaught of grenades and Fast Hands is our Bonus Perk for that added reload quickness and the ability to switch to another gun in the blink of an eye.

For the Ultimate Perk, we believe you could go one of two ways, High Alert as it gives you a chance to react and turn the tables with your devastating SMG, or Ghost to avoid UAVs and such.

The Proximity Mine is always good for grabbing some cheeky kills as players just never seem to expect them, the Flash Grenade is an ideal projectile to use before peeking corners and rushing buildings, and Dead Silence always works well with Ghost to keep you silent and stealthy.
