Modern Warfare 2 Kastov 545 loadoutActivision

The Kastov 545 is a solid AR that can deliver a great performance in Modern Warfare 2, however, you might need the best meta loadout for it, luckily, we have one right here.

Season 3 Reloaded of Modern Warfare 2 has begun, and while the Kastov 545 has been hit with a nerf the AK-47 lookalike still deals good damage at a medium range bundled with a decent rate of fire.

However, its recoil is powerful, and the weapon is not the best at close range, meaning you need to build this weapon well in order for it to live up to M4 standards.

  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Rear Grip: Ivanov ST-70 Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56

We start our best Kastov 545 Modern Warfare 2 loadout with the FSS OLE-V Laser. One of the main issues regarding this Assault Rifle is its recoil and accuracy. It can be extremely frustrating to deal with, especially with the quick rate of fire. The FSS OLE-V Laser aids in that greatly, same with FTAC Ripper 56.

The Echoless-80 has the same perks and will help that recoil stay a little more under control when firing. This is also boosted by the increase in muzzle velocity granted in the Season 1 Reloaded update.

For the rear Grip, we recommend using the Ivanov ST-70 Grip due to its increase in flinch resistance – something that’s vital when competing in close combat.

The addition of the 45 Round Mag will grant you a larger pool of ammo to dispatch more enemies before you run dry.

Best Kastov 545 Modern Warfare 2 class

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Thermite
  • Tactical: Stim

The base perks we recommend are Overkill and Scavenger. Overkill allows you to grab something more long-range to allow for all distances to be covered and Scavenger gives you a few more bullets since you’ll likely be firing quite a few during a kill.

Since Overkill is a great perk to have, the bonus perk should be Fast Hands. This lets you swap weapons and reload with ease and the speed required to take down the enemy with few problems.

As for the ultimate perk, there is really no other option than Ghost. It’s the best perk in the game and, with the number of UAVs present in Modern Warfare 2, a bit more protection is vital. It may take up to level 52 to unlock but it’s well worth the wait.

Since you’ll likely be in the fray of battle constantly, we recommend using a Stim and Thermite to deal some devastating damage and keep you alive when you really need it.
