We’ve put together the best VEL 46 loadout for Modern Warfare 2, including the best attachments and Perks.


Best VEL 46 Modern Warfare 2 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Barrel: Schlager RV-8
  • Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser
  • Stock: VEL A-568 Collapsed
  • Underbarrel: Edge-47 Grip

We kick off the best VEL 46 loadout with the FTAC Castle Comp, which keeps the MP7’s recoil in check to help it hold its own at a longer range. Combining this with the Schlager RV-8 Barrel and Edge-47 Grip transforms the VEL 46 into a no-recoil monster that could rival some of the game‘s ARs.

As a mostly short-range gun, mobility is vital when trying to get the best of enemies in tight corridors. That’s why we picked the VEL A-568 Collapsed Stock for buffs to movement speed, sprint-to-fire speed, and ADS speed.

Finally, we’ve gone for the Schlager ULO-66 Laser for better hipfire accuracy, perfect for those situations where there’s no time to aim.

The MP7 is a CoD classic, and it’s a strong option again in Modern Warfare 2.

Best VEL 46 Modern Warfare 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Tracker
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

When it comes to Perks, we recommend Tracker in the first slot so you can hunt down enemies by following their footsteps. Then you should go for Double Time for an increase in sprint duration.

The MP7 can burn through ammo at a rapid pace, so Fand Hands will lower the reload speeds so you can get back into the action. Last up is the Ultimate Perk, and we’ve gone for Ghost to keep you off the radar and away from Killstreaks at the end of a match.

Equipment-wise, Semtex are an easy-to-use lethal that deals big damage, while Stims will provide a nice health boost to get you out of a pinch.

Best VEL 46 alternatives in Modern Warfare 2

If the VEL 46 isn’t working out, we’d advise you to switch to the FSS Hurricane. This new SMG is currently one of the strongest guns in the whole game.

But if you’re looking to move away from SMGs, the M4 is an incredibly versatile Assault Rifle that’s perfect at all ranges.
