So, you've purchased Modern Warfare 2, and you want to upgrade to a single-fire weapon? It's time to get serious about your trigger finger. Skip the useless Battle Rifles and allow us to introduce the FTAC Recon. Here's a complete attachment setup and custom class for the FTAC, enjoy!
Modern Warfare 2 is now well underway, and we've been testing the weapons to see which ones stand out. It's the finest weapon in the BR category, and it can be used very effectively at mid-range. We'll be the first to admit that this is a loadout for those who prefer aggression, but we'd recommend you use the FSS Hurricane or our M4/MP5 loadout.
MW2 FTAC Recon Attachment Setup
|Muzzle||Shred CP90 Compensator||M4 Level 13 a FTAC Recon Level 11|
|Barrel||419MM EXF Barrel||M4 Level 13 a FTAC Recon Level 20|
|Optic||Cronen Mini Red Dot||M4 Level 13 a FTAC Recon Level 16 a FSS Hurricane Level 3|
Demo Fade Pro Stock
|M4 Level 19|
|Rear Grip||Sakin ZX Grip||M4 Level 8|
Pro Stock from Demo Fade
Stock from Demo Fade Pro
With this loadout, we want to do everything we can to improve damage range and recoil control, while also saving space for an optic, so we can use this puppy at range. The only attachment that might look odd is the Fade Pro Stock, but this is one of the few options that can give us a benefit (movement speed) without causing any damage to our aim-down-sight time.
Note: This is a non-Overkill loadout, so you'll need to bring a secondary weapon along with the FTAC Recon. This is entirely your choice, but we're loving the X13 blueprint you get at Beta level 15.

MW2 FTAC Recon Loadout: Perks & Equipment
Here's our favorite perk choice for a class like this:
|Bonus Perk||Fast Hands|
We've taken both Battle Hardened and E.O.D. as we're hoping to keep the grenades from falling on our way as much as possible. This weapon is a 10-round mag, so we might be reloading quite often. And for the Ultimate perk we've taken Ghost, but this might be swapped out for Hardline if you want.
If you want to see what else is on offer, you can see a complete list of every feature in MW2.
Here are a few of our favorite grenades as well as one of the finest Field Upgrades:
|Field Upgrades||Portable UAV|
Don't judge us for using Proximity Mines, this whole loadout is about pre-aiming at power positions. For a Tactical grenade, you could pick your favorite, but we just prefer stuns because they are the easiest and most reliable.
The Portable UAV has proved to be very useful for obvious reasons, and it recharges very rapidly, while the majority of the other Field Upgrades are just gimmicks.
The FTAC Recon is one of the better weapons in the game. However, we have a complete list of weapons here.
