Modern Warfare 2 guru reveals “most feared” sniper loadout that isn’t actually a sniper

Warzone 2 players have been critical of the Crossbow, but the weapon shines in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer matches.

Season 2 reintroduced the fan-favorite crossbow. Unfortunately, Warzone 2 community members blasted the devs over its “woeful” power. In WZ1, the beloved marksman rifle one-shot downed enemies. Infinity Ward stepped in and made the weapon a two-shot down to the chest in WZ2.

Players can still one-shot down enemies with a headshot, but that’s no easy task with how harshly arrow shots drop off over range. The devs also removed the ability to one-shot kill enemies with snipers, as they did in WZ1, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

The crossbow is a polarizing weapon in MW2 and WZ2.

The LA Guerillas explained why the Crossbow is so powerful in Modern Warfare 2. Notably, the weapon can take down UAVs and Counter UAVs in one bolt and has a sprint speed of 6 meters per second.

On top of that, it is a one-shot kill from the waist up, boasts a fire rate of 24 rounds per minute, and can be reloaded in just two seconds.

“But the bolts travel slowly, so they won’t always hit where you aim.”
