The FSS Hurricane is one of Modern Warfare 2’s best SMGs, but only if it has the best loadout. Here’s the best FSS Hurricane loadout in MW2, complete with attachments, Perks, and equipment.

In years gone by, an amazing SMG loadout can rip opponents to bits in no time at all, like the MP5. Similarly, the FSS Hurricane can also drop big numbers during a game of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Some of the game’s maps have some intense, close-quarters sections that are suited perfectly to the Hurricane’s strengths.

If you want to run around at great speed with the ferocious FSS Hurricane in Modern Warfare 2, then you need our best loadout for the weapon.


Best FSS Hurricane Modern Warfare 2 loadout

  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16″ Barrel
  • Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple Vert Grip
  • Rear Grip: Saxin ZX Grip
  • Stock: Demo Fade Pro Stock
  • Receiver: FSS Hurricane

The best Hurricane loadout in the game starts off with the FSS Cannonade 16″ Barrel as it simply adds a ton of firepower and range to the weapon, an unbelievable positive as it’s an SMG after all.

For the Muzzle, we recommended the XTEN Razor Comp as it’s the quintessential accuracy booster with adjustments made to both horizontal and vertical recoil. While the VX Pineapple Vert Grip is not only a great name, but it greatly increases overall gun control and hip fire accuracy for the Hurricane.

We’ve gone for the Saxin ZX Grip next as we’re happy sacrificing a bit of stability for even more recoil control, turning the FSS Hurricane into a laser by this point, and the Demo Fade Pro Stock decreases its recoil more so.

The FSS Hurricane is one of Modern Warfare 2’s top SMGs.

Best FSS Hurricane Modern Warfare 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Tracker
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Proximity Mine
  • Tactical: Stim

Tracker can be instrumental in landing easy kills as it allows you to follow the footsteps of unsuspecting enemies. On the other hand, Battle Hardened turns you into a walking tank that can pretty much nullify the effects of any thrown equipment — including those positon-revealing Snapshot Grenades.

It’s quite easy to get caught up with an SMG and unload a ton of bullets in no time at all, so Fast Hands is useful for getting the next clip in ASAP. As for your Ultimate, it’s a tricky one, but Ghost is an option you can’t go wrong with due to its concealment potential.

A Proximity Mine can either be a one-shot-kill device or even just a way of knowing an enemy is close, so we recommend that as your Lethal, whereas the Stim retains its healing properties that players have come to love over the years to get you straight back into a fight.

How to unlock the FSS Hurricane in Modern Warfare 2

In order to get your hands on this excellent SMG in Modern Warfare 2, you’ll need to level up the M4 to Level 13 to unlock the FTAC Recon, once you’ve done that, use the FTAC Recon until it reaches Level 16, and you should unlock the FSS Hurricane Receiver after doing this!

The concept of Gunsmith’s Receivers has thrown some players off, but once you understand the idea then the system becomes a piece of cake.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  1. Equip the M4 Assault Rifle
  2. Use it until it reaches Level 13
  3. Now, equip the FTAC Recon in a loadout
  4. Play games of Modern Warfare 2 with it until it reaches Level 16
  5. You can now equip the FSS Hurricane Reciever!

Alternative to the FSS Hurricane Modern Warfare 2 loadout

Even early in Modern Warfare 2, the game has provided players with plenty of solid options to take down opposition teams, so if the Hurricane isn’t your jam, try out the M4 or the FTAC Recon.

The M4 is your prototypical Assault Rifle with balanced stats and enough attachments to be customized to your liking. On the other hand, the FTAC Recon is a bludgeoning Battle Rifle with a small ammo clip, but ridiculous power.
