Sakin MG38 LMG Modern Warfare 2Activison

Warzone expert WhosImmortal has identified a “powerhouse” LMG in Modern Warfare 2 that “decimates” opponents at medium to long-range.

When picking a weapon in Modern Warfare 2, most players gravitate towards ARs and SMGs, often overlooking the LMG category completely.

While these bulky guns lack mobility, they compensate for their shortcomings with raw firepower and powerful TTKs.

Not only that, they’re unmatched at long-range and make it easy to beam down enemies from afar with the correct setup.

Well, WhosImmortal has unveiled an LMG that deserves more attention and according to him, is a lethal option in multiplayer.

Describing the Sakin MG38 as a “powerhouse” that “decimates” enemies at medium to long-range, it’s safe to say WhosImmortal is a fan of this top-tier LMG.

While it may not be the perfect pick for the run and gun modes that operate at a faster pace, it’s ideal for holding down power positions and locking down areas on a map.

The build above aims to enhance the gun’s bullet velocity and damage, making it perfect for insta-killing enemies from afar.

It also bolsters the Sakin’s recoil, making it extremely easy to control, especially with the SZ Lonewolf Optic.

As the Sakin struggles against aggressive players looking for close-quarter gunfights, we recommend running Overkill.

This will allow you to run a shotgun or SMG as your secondary slot, giving you a versatile loadout that can eliminate foes at any range.
