The ISO Hemlock performs pretty well in casual modes and BR, but Ranked Play is an entirely different playground in MW2 Season 2. In Ranked, there are certain rules in place that limit the use of attachments. Even certain guns and other weapons are banned. Fortunately, the ISO Hemlock is an option that is usable in Ranked. However, you can’t put the same attachments that you use in your loadouts outside of Ranked.
Best build for ISO Hemlock in Season 2 Ranked Play in MW2
Since you can’t build the ISO Hemlock in the same way as you do in casual modes, there is a specific build when it comes to Ranked Play. Here is the build to make the best ISO Hemlock in Ranked Play:
- Muzzle: FJX Fulcrum Pro
- Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
- Stock: Mace 600
- Rear Grip: XTEN Grip
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
This ISO Hemlock build makes it the best AR to use in Ranked Play in MW2 Season 2. The only AR competition to this can be the TAQ-56 but only with the right build. Let’s learn more about why this build is so good.
The FJX Fulcrum Pro muzzle gives you reduced vertical and horizontal recoil. Since attachments that are usually the go-to on muzzles are banned in Ranked Play, this is the best option. This muzzle won’t silence your gun but only because silencers are banned.
Attachments like the XTEN Grip and Cronen Mini Pro optic make the handling of the gun much better. The grip makes it so that the ISO Hemlock has a much faster sprint-to-fire time and also faster ADS time. The optics are essential because the ISO Hemlock default iron sight is very obstructive.
Finally, the Mace 600 stock gives the ISO Hemlock a lot of aiming stability and recoil control and so does the Phase-3 Grip. You need your accuracy to be on point in Ranked Play in MW2 Season 2. These attachments ensure you don’t miss your targets because of recoil.
