Best Modern Warfare 2 RAAL MG Perks & Equipment

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

For Perks, Bomb Squad and Battle Hardened are great choices to start the game off, protecting you against enemy equipment. As the RAAL MG can take a while to reload, Fast Hands is a no-brainer, and Ghost will keep you off the radar while setting up the lines of sight you’ll need to dominate with the weapon.

The Flash Grenade is great for flushing rooms of players, while the Promimixty Mine will prevent enemies from creeping up on you. Lastly, as mobility isn’t great with the RAAL, Dead Silence will give you some extra speed and stealthiness when you need it.
