MW2 introduced a new Marksman rifle, to build your best loadout to, called the Crossbow. Veteran CoD players might be familiar with the Crossbow as it has been previously featured multiple times in other CoD titles. Even if not, it is your typical crossbow with a pull-back mechanism that fires bolts of arrows in quick succession. This weapon is a high-risk high-reward type of weapon as missing shots can be detrimental to your gameplay, but landing them will give you easy one-shot kills.
Best Loadout Build for Crossbow Marksman Rifle in MW2
Listed below are the best attachments you can use on your crossbow loadout in MW2:
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
- Arms: SO Momenti
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mw
- Stock: Speedtrak Echo
- Wire: 28-Strand Cable
While the crossbow can be built in many different ways, this build offers a quick and reliable weapon that is fast yet accurate with its shots. You can put a different scope for a more medium to long-range type of engagement if you want to use it like that. However, in our opinion, Crossbow is best used in close to medium-range engagements and this build focuses on that.
Starting with the optics, the Cronen Mini Pro is the undefeated optic. You can never go wrong with it for close-range weapons. The aim down sight speed of this build is greatly increased thanks to the VLK LZR 7mw laser and the Speedtrack Echo stock. The damage range is further increased by using SO Momenti on the arms and the 28-Strand Cable wire provides faster bullet velocity.
