One of the last assault rifles to be added to Modern Warfare 2 is one of the top choices in Warzone yet again, but players haven’t flocked to it just yet. 

When the integration between Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone first took hold, plenty of Call of Duty fans were worried about what would happen to weapons from Modern Warfare 2. 

Initially, some of the weapons from the previous titles were deemed “unusable” because of the health and TTK changes, but that has changed with recent buffs and nerfs. With a fair few MW3 weapons being knocked down a few rungs, MW2 guns are thriving, including the likes of the  M13C, Tempus Torrent, and FTAC Recon

However, they’re not the only ones getting some love as Warzone guru WhosImmortal has highlighted the TR-76 Geist as one of the top options in the game if you’re looking for a new assault rifle.

That’s right, the TR-76 Geist, which was added at the tail end of Modern Warfare 2’s cycle is a deadly choice again, even if some players are still ignoring it. 

“It was really good back in Warzone 2, it hasn’t seen much attention here in Warzone 3 but now, after various different updates and buffs to this and nerfs to other rifles, this is honestly feeling really good,” the YouTuber said, noting it is “easy to control” for an MW2 rifle. 

WhosImmortal added that it is a “surprising” choice to be in the meta conversation but the TR-76 “holds its own” in Warzone right now with solid stats. 

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: Bruen Bridle Heavy
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Magazine: 45-round mag

Like with most Modern Warfare 2 guns, the biggest drawback centers around ammo mag capacity. A 45-round mag is slightly better than some others that max out at 40 and even 15 rounds, but it lags behind LMGs, for example. 

It remains to be seen if the TR-76 Geist will become a part of the meta again as, according to WZRanked stats, players still aren’t taking an interest in it. Though, it clearly packs a punch.
