Best S0-14 Modern Warfare 2 loadout

  • Barrel: 22″ Boremaster Barrel
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Ammunition: 25 Round Mag
  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Optic: VLK 4.0 Optic

The S0-14 lacks in two areas: Range and recoil control. That’s why we recommend using the 22″ Boremaster Barrel to increase your bullet velocity, damage range, recoil control, and hipfire accuracy, allowing you to stay on target regularly.

Complementing the Barrel are the Lockshot KT85 Muzzle and the FSS OLE-V Laser which both greatly impact your ADS and recoil as well as some extra sprint-to-fire speed so you can shoot fast and true.

While entirely optional, we do suggest using the 25-Round Mag and the VLK 4.0 Optic to grant a bit more range and a few more bullets, just in case you need them.

The S0-14 packs a punch but you need a loadout to keep that dreadful recoil under control.

Best S0-14 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Tracker
  • Bonus Perk: Hardline
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade

Battle Rifles are powerful so you need to make sure you’re ready for the enemy before they get to the objective. That’s why we suggest using both Double Time and Tracker. Double Time gives you a bit of a boost when getting to objectives whereas Tracker allows you to easily get the drop on the enemy.

When it comes to Bonus Perks, we recommend using Hardline for those quicker Killstreaks. Then, the best Ultimate Perk to use for the S0-14 is High Alert. It will work well with Tracker and give you a little nudge if an enemy has spotted you.
