Sniping, especially quickscoping, has been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise since 2007’s CoD 4. Modern Warfare 2 carries on the tradition, bringing powerful Sniper Rifles that are perfect for both long-range and close-range fights.

One of the best Sniper Rifles in the game is the LA-B 330, a bolt-action rifle that offers a ton of attachments to improve its aim down sight (ADS) and sprint to fire speeds, and it will reliably one-shot enemies almost anywhere in the body.

We’ve got everything you need to build the best Modern Warfare 2 LA-B 330 loadout, including attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best Modern Warfare 2 LA-B 330 loadout attachments

best modern warfare 2 la-b 330 loadout attachments
  • Barrel: 16″ ZLR Executor 80 Barrel
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Optic: SZ Bullseye Optic
  • Stock: ZLR 170 Pad Extension
  • Comb: Aim-Assist 406

All of the attachments for the best LA-B 330 Modern Warfare 2 loadout are for improving the weapon’s ADS speed and sprint-to-fire time, allowing you to quickscope enemies with ease.

We’ve kicked off this loadout with the 16″ ZLR Executor 80 Barrel as it increases both ADS speed and bullet velocity, but because it hurts the damage range, we only recommend it for 6v6 play. The 23.5″ Fluted R-67 is the better choice for Ground War and Invasion.

Next, the FSS OLE-V Laser is the perfect choice for Sniper Rifles as it improves its accuracy, ADS speed, and sprint-to-fire time, with the only downside being that enemies can see the laser. For the scope, it’s hard to go wrong with the 6x SZ Bullseye Optic in 6v6 as it gives more than enough zoom while further improving mobility.

Finally, combining the ZLR 170 Pad Extension Stock and Aim-Assist 406 Comb only makes the LA-B 330 ADS even faster, so you’ll be quickscoping enemies before they can even react.

  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions Box

For Perks to pair with the best LA-B 330 loadout in Modern Warfare 2, it’s impossible to go wrong with the combination of Bomb Squad and Battle Hardened as you’ll get a ton of equipment thrown at you throughout at match.

Fast Hands allows for quicker weapon swaps and reloads. We also can’t recommend Ghost more, as UAVs are incredibly strong in Modern Warfare 2’s early meta.

For Equipment, players are begging for Flash Grenade nerfs which is a testament to their power, and the Throwing Knife offers a quick kill. Plus, the Throwing Knife has the added bonus that your Operator will use it as a quick melee weapon if you miss a crucial shot at close range.
