Swagg with Modern Warfare 2 Scar-H

The SCAR-H was one of Modern Warfare 2’s most beloved weapons back in 2009, and with a new MW2 hitting shelves later this year, FaZe Swagg has replicated the Assault Rifle in Warzone with a low TTK loadout.

Warzone is chocked full of well over 100 weapons, giving players plenty of options from Vanguard, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare to choose from. Warzone’s Gunsmith allows players to mix and match attachments to create unique builds, offering even more control.

However, there are still some classic guns from early CoD games that are nowhere to be found. The OG Modern Warfare 2 is home to some of the most iconic weapons in the series, and players would love to get their hands on them once again.

With a new Modern Warfare 2 set to drop later this year, FaZe Swagg has found a way to bring the SCAR-H from 2009 to Caldera.

Scar in Warzone

Although the SCAR-H isn’t an option in Warzone, the FN Scar 17 from the Modern Warfare reboot is one of the battle royale’s oldest Assault Rifles. It shares a number of characteristics with the SCAR-H, and can easily be transformed with the right loadout.

Swagg did exactly that in his July 21 video, where he decided to run the weapon in preparation for Modern Warfare 2. While these recreations are often great for nostalgia but far from meta, the Warzone pro actually felt the SCAR-H was a decent option heading into Season 4 Reloaded.

After dropping a 31-kill solo game on Caldera, Swagg said: “The SCAR…I’m excited for it to return. It has a great TTK in this game, it kills really fast.”

Check out Swagg’s Modern Warfare 2 SCAR-H loadout in Warzone below:

Swagg’s SCAR-H Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FORGE TAC 20.0″ LB
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Magazine: 30 Round Mags

Luckily, FN SCAR 17 already has the look and feel of the SCAR-H, so Swagg’s loadout is about boosting its stats to make it perform as it did 13 years ago. The keys here are the Monolithic Suppressor and FORGE TAC 20.0″ LB Barrel, as these boost the damage range and velocity to achieve the SCAR-H’s incredible TTK at mid-range.

The Commando Foregrip buffs recoil control and stability in order to recreate the original weapon’s laser accuracy. Meanwhile, he went 30 Round Mags in the name of being authentic, meaning the setup works best in Solos or Duos.

Finally, Swagg related the iconic iron sights with the VLK 3.0x Optic, purely to help the SCAR hold its own in those longer-range fights.
