  • For the Underbarrel, the VX Pineapple is a very good attachment that serves to boost the accuracy of the weapon considerably. It also maximizes recoil control.
  • The FSS-X7 Barrel serves to enhance the velocity of the bullets to a considerable extent. It also increases recoil control.
  • For the Stock, the Demo Quicksilver Stock functions to enhance your ability to walk and aim. This allows for much better and more accurate reactions to sudden movements from the enemy.
  • For the Rear Grip, the Phantom Grip is an extremely good attachment as it helps in aiming faster, which is much required, especially for close combat situations.
  • Lastly, for the Laser, we have chosen the 4MW Laser Box. The 4MW Laser Box serves to enhance the accuracy of the FSS Hurricane to a good extent.

More Attachments

If you want to play around with other attachments and make your own custom attachments build, you will have to unlock them. This can be done by leveling up different weapons in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. For instance, once you unlock the 0.50 GS handgun, you have to level it up until you reach level 4 to unlock the Corio RE-X Pro sight.

Make sure to play with as many weapons as you can as you unlock more weapons and attachments along the way.

Weapon Tuning

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 also comes with a feature known as Weapon Tuning, which can be unlocked by maxed-out leveling any weapon. Weapon Tuning allows you to tweak the weapon’s stats further with even greater customizability. This is also done by tweaking the attachments and will allow you to design the weapon to match your preference completely.

Best FSS Hurricane Class Build (Perks And Equipment)

For the perks and equipment for M4, we have picked the following as the ones for the best Modern Warfare 2 FSS Hurricane Loadout:

  • Basic Perk 1: Double Time
  • Basic Perk 2: Scavenger or Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands or Hardline
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix or Ghost
  • Secondary Weapon: X12
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex or Frag Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Battle Rage or Dead Silence

Basic Perks

The Basic Perks have been chosen considering the fast-paced gameplay, which is a key characteristic of the SMG weapon class.

Double Time and Scavenger are aimed at making quick combat easier for you. Double Time allows you to use Tactical Sprint for a longer duration of time. It also enhances your movement speed while crouching by 30%. In Modern Warfare 2, you need to have Scavenger in order to pick up ammo from dead bodies lying around.

An alternative for the Base Perk 2 is Bomb Squad. Bomb Squad helps protect you from different forms of explosives, which is definitely a much-required feat.

Bonus Perk

Fast Hands is the entry for our recommended Bonus Perk in Modern Warfare 2. As the name indicates, Fast Hands primarily allows you to reload faster. In addition to that, it also allows you to switch to your secondary gun as well as to use equipment faster as well. It comes in very handy when you are carrying a secondary weapon combined with Scavenger.

Hardline is a very good alternative to Fast Hands for the Bonus Perk for the FSS Hurricane weapon class build. Hardline allows you to earn killstreaks quicker, either by scoring 125 fewer scores or one less kill than is otherwise normally required. This depends on your streak setup preference. The FSS Hurricane, belonging to the SMG class, calls for a very quick gameplay, and Hardline complements such a playstyle quite well.

Ultimate Perk

For the Ultimate Perk, Ghost is undoubtedly a must-have option considering its up-time. It essentially keeps you invisible from being detected on the enemy’s UAVs, Heartbeat Sensors, and Portable Radars. This allows you to sneak around the map effortlessly with maximum stealth.

A good alternative is Quick Fix. It helps you to survive during combat and also allows health regeneration upon every kill that you make. This regeneration effect is boosted whenever you capture an objective and attempt to hold it.

Secondary Weapon

We have specifically designed this FSS Hurricane weapon loadout build to focus on using the FSS Hurricane primarily. In this light, we have chosen the X12, which is a simple pistol, as the secondary weapon. Switching to the X12 is fast and efficient for making the last shot at an enemy already damaged by the FSS Hurricane’s deadly shots.

Tactical Equipment

For the Tactical Equipment, we have chosen the Flash Grenade, which has been the go-to secondary grenade for Call of Duty players for generations, besides the Stun Grenade. It helps you blind enemies, before entering rooms or corridors, giving you an advantage over them. It is always better to be safe than sorry when entering rooms or corridors.

Lethal Equipment

The first option that we have chosen for the Lethal Equipment entry for the best FSS Hurricane weapon class loadout is Semtex. Semtex is very handy for modes focused on objectives like Domination, as it helps clear out flags very quickly.

You could also go with the Frag Grenade for your Lethal Weapon. Unlike Proximity Mines, Frag Grenades are much more offensive and help you clear out rooms and other dense areas of the enemy in one go.

Field Upgrade

Battle Rage is an absolutely excellent option for the Field Upgrade entry for the best FSS Hurricane weapon loadout build. When Battle Rage is activated, your health starts to regenerate quickly. Additionally, you also gain resistance to tactical. This allows for clearer vision, and your Tactical Sprint also constantly refreshes, making it possible for you to sprint further.

A good alternative to Battle Rage is Dead Silence. Dead Silence serves to temporarily make your footsteps silent, allowing you to maximize stealth. The duration of Dead Silence is refreshed upon killing an enemy with a gun, melee, or throwing knife.

Phantom Perk Package

It is important to note that you cannot equip many of these custom perks until you reach the required levels. For that, we recommend that you go with the Phantom Perk Package, which is available right from the get-go. It comes with Double Time and Ghost from our recommendations. In place of the others, you will get Battle Hardened and Cold-Blooded. Hardline is a good alternative that will allow you to hit killstreaks with lesser kills or scores.

Battle Hardened helps reduce the effectiveness of Flash, Stun, EMP, and Gas Grenade effects on you. It also serves to reduce the effect of Shock Sticks. Another important thing to note about Battle Hardened is that it essentially makes you immune to Snapshot Grenades.

Cold-Blooded makes you undetectable by AI targeting systems and thermal optics. It saves you from triggering High Alert warnings and also makes you invisible to enemy Tactical Cameras, Recon Drones, and Spotter Scopes.

Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition

SMGs have dominated the Call Of Duty games since the OG Modern Warfare series itself. The AK-74u from the original Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is a very good example in this regard. The FSS Hurricane, just like the AK-74u, is a very fast weapon that helps you obliterate enemies at close-range and mid-range distances.

With the vast range of attachments that Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has to offer, you can maximize the weapon’s usability according to your own preference.

With the release of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2, players have been hooked on trying out all the various weapons that the game has to offer. The FSS Hurricane has many people hooked because of being one of the most excellent SMGs to exist in the game.
