Modern Warfare 2: Best MX9 Loadouts [Tried & Tested]

I have played MW2 for 80+ hours and the following is the best loadout setup you can keep for MX9.

One of the best close and medium-range weapons that are being used by top players in Modern Warfare 2 is MX9. It has the power to unleash hell upon your opponent when in close quarters. I am going to tell you the best possible Modern Warfare 2 MX9 loadout builds and class setups that you could use in the game to beat your opponents in battles.

Key Takeaways
  • MX9 is an SMG belonging to the AUG family and is one of the most versatile weapons in the game.
  • There are two loadouts that you can build, one is a close-ranged loadout, and the other is mid-ranged.
  • Using the first loadout, you focus on playing aggressively in the game with the help of its hip-fire accuracy.
  • The second loadout is used to hold off positions and camp your way to victory.
  • Both loadouts are an excellent choice of builds to further excel in Modern Warfare 2.

When it comes to the right attachments, I recommend taking special care in selecting the optimal ones. The primary focus of the attachments is to make your weapons handling much better and its accuracy pinpoint.

These attachments that I use will help you overpower your enemy at close range with their hip-fire accuracy.

32-Round Mag Bruen Q900 Grip FTAC C11 RISER Bruen STB 556 Stock EXF Solarfire
  • High Round Magazine
  • Recoil Smoothness
  • Increased Bullet Velocity
  • Improved Hip Fire Accuracy


  • Effected stability over long sprays
  • Laser might be disturbing sometimes


Secondary Weapon

You will be using the Overkill Perk with MX9 class setup, so you should pair it with something robust. In that manner, you will be going for the Lachmann-556 AR Loadout, which packs quite a punch and is great for long to mid-range battles.

It can be used to engage multiple enemies at the moment. In my opinion, it will prove as an outstanding pair with the MX9 class setup.

With the following attachments, you can make the rifle an absolute beast.

Lach – 12 Cronen Mini Red Dot FSS Sharkfin 90 Lachmann TCG-10 40-Round Mag


The perks in the game are a great way to add realistic abilities into play which makes it more fun. Since your play will be to rush into opponents and massacre them. You will need the ultimate stealth-like perks at your side.

These perks can be used to become somewhat of a ninja to run up to enemies and annihilate them. 

  • Base Perks: Overkill and Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost


As mentioned earlier, my play is to rush people and get them out as quickly as possible. For the game plan to be successful, you’ll also need the right attacking equipment.

With the play at hand, the best optimal choice would be to go for the Flash Grenade and the Semtex combo. The flash grenade can mess with the opponent’s plan as they will be left blinded and confused.

Field Upgrade 

One can use field upgrades to enhance their gameplan ten folds. Using Dead Silence is the option when it comes to the MX9 class setup, as it is a stealth-based upgrade. It makes your steps go silent, making it so your opponent can’t hear them. 

It is the most powerful Field Upgrade for flanking and pushing adversaries. When combined with Ghost, your opponents won’t be able to anticipate your arrival.

As the previous loadout was more about close-range combat, the Modern Warfare 2 MX9 loadout build 2 differs from it. It is more of a middle-range assault rifle-like build that can conquer opponents from meters away. Some people consider SMGs to be powerful in close-range combat, which is true. But that is where my MX9 class setup differs.

The way the gun is designed, it can easily counter assault rifles with its quick fire rate and recoil control. It can match up to elite ARs like the M4 assault rifle and give a run for their money. But that would require you to have certain attachments that make it into the beast. Well, that is where you get lucky cause I will be enlisting all the attachments needed to make it.

The attachments that I am gonna use with the MX9 loadout build will primarily focus on beaming your opponents. This means you have to maintain your distance and use the recoil advantages that the attachments give to good use.

You would have to maintain and hold up a position and fire up your enemies, and that requires the following attachments. 

Muzzle Barrel Magazine Optic Laser
AVR-T90 Comp 16.5” STB Factory 32 Round Mag Slimline Pro Schlager ULD-66 Laser
  • More Versatile
  • Improved ADS Accuracy
  • Aiming Idle Stability
  • Sprint to Fire Speed


  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Decreased Sprinting Speed
  • Laser Visible in ADS


Secondary Weapon 

You may think that a secondary weapon isn’t required in the MX9 class setup. But that isn’t the case because the MX9 mid-range loadout can fall short sometimes. Emphasis on the “sometimes” but yes, it can happen. It falls short at long ranges when you’re holding up a certain location which is basically your play here.

So to avoid that, you will be adding the best sniper in the game, which is the MCPR-300 that will cover the long-distance range. The weapon is as accurate as it comes, but it can be a little hard to choose between the right attachments for it.

That is why I will again provide you with the best attachments to go with it.

FSS Merc Stock Cronen Cheetah Grip 5-Round Mag 22” OMX-456 300 Mag High-Velocity


As for the perks you should go for the following picks:

  • Basic Perks: Scavenger and Battle-hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Focus
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost


It can be a little tricky to think of the right equipment when you’re dealing with a class setup for MX9. There are a lot of camping and holding positions required for the MX9 midrange loadout to work. So to help in those difficult camping situations, you can use equipment such as the Medical Syringe and Claymore. 

Field Upgrade 

Whilst holding a position, the Trophy System is the best possible field upgrade. It is because it deflects upcoming projectiles, such as grenades, and saves your position. It can be really advantageous to use it in the MX9 class setup. Most people do not understand the importance of a trophy system and underestimate it. 

How To Unlock MX9

Now the aggravating part of Call Of Duty is unlocking guns. Which is just a long process that needs to be done by upgrading different weapons. It is an important part of every gun class in the game. But with the MX9, it is relatively easier to unlock when compared to other guns.

You are first introduced into the AUG family with the STB 556. It is a variant of MX9 and is unlocked at level 40. It is an easy-to-play gun that can be upgraded fast if given the right amount of time. You would have to upgrade the weapon up to the 13th level to unlock the MX9. It is a procedure that requires patience, so be ready to go through it.

My Take On MX9

As the MX9 is classified as an SMG, I find it best in close-range combat situations where you can absolutely drill the opponent. Its incredible handling ability makes it the best possible gun to use in close-range combat. 

Its quick rate of fire and amazing stabilization are what help bring the results to the table, making it one of the best guns in Modern Warfare 2. With my MX9 Loadout build, you won’t have to depend on your teammates to finish the opponent off. 

All in all, the MX9 loadout build in Modern Warfare 2 is an amazing choice of a gun for classic and aggressive players. You could easily win multiplayer battles quickly with the assertive game plan provided above.

Players with knowledge of COD guns cannot stay away from a loadout of this class. After knowing about each detail of the weapon, which loadout are you intrigued to build? Additionally, I suggest taking a look at Huzaifah Durrai’s comprehensive review of Modern Warfare 2 for an in-depth analysis.
