Best SP-R 208 Modern Warfare 2 loadout

  • Barrel: 12.5″ Carbon Barrel
  • Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4
  • Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension
  • Comb: Aim-assist 406
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt

The SP-R 208 is the perfect quickscoping weapon in MW2, but however you choose to play, ADS and mobility are essential to unlocking the potential of this gun. We start our loadout with the 12.5″ Carbon Barrel, which reduces the time it takes to look down the sight and general movement speed.

For the Optic, Forge Tac Delta 4 which provides extra magnification to make it easier to land headshots at mid to long range. Then we’ve got the ZRL T70 Pad Extension for another buff to ADS speed so you can snap onto enemies as quickly as possible.

The Aim-assist 406 also works nicely with this build as it decreases the sprint-to-fire time, allowing you to be more reactive while running around the map. Finally, we’ve gone for the FSS ST87 Bolt, which drastically decreases how long it takes to rechamber after a shot.

Best SP-R 208 Modern Warfare 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Scavenger
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenades

If you’re not 100% accurate with the SP-R 208 it’s easy to burn through ammo quickly, so Scavenger is ideal for picking up extra bullets on the go. We also recommend Overkill to bring a second primary weapon along, preferably an SMG like the Fennec 45.

For the Bonus Perk, Fast Hands makes switching between your two primaries quick and easy, while also decreasing reload times so you’re never out of the action for long. Then, you should equip Ghost to stay away from enemy UAVs while you’re rushing around the map.

Other players may duck into cover to avoid your fire, but using Drill Charges can quickly flush them out even if you’re outside their building. We’ve paired them with Flash Grenades to disorientate enemies while capturing objectives.
