COD MW2: Best MINIBAK Loadout & Class Setup

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

The Minibak is one of the best weapons in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that has surfaced up until now and falls under the Sub Machine Gun (SMG) category. Now, to take advantage of the Minibak to the fullest, you will have to pair it with the most useful attachments, perks, and equipment

Furthermore, the Minibak is a weapon with a decent fire rate which is paired with a large mag of 64 rounds by default, and even with the large mag, it still retains its best SMG pros of lightness and high aiming speed

Key Takeaways
  • The Minibak can be unlocked by progressing further into the Kastovia Family.
  • Leveling up the Minibak by playing with it will unlock more attachments and mods for the gun to tinker with later in the gunsmith.
  • Now, the best attachments for the Minibak loadout are XTEN RR-40 muzzle, BAK-9 279mm Barrel, STOVL DR Laser Box, Otrezat Stock, and True-Tac Grip.
  • Furthermore, the best equipment for the Minibak loadout includes X 13 Auto as the secondary, Drill charge as lethal, Stim as tactical, and Dead charge as a field upgrade. 

Before moving on, here’s a quick overview of the Best Minibak Loadout for MW2:

- Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
- Barrel: BAK-9 279mm Barrel
- Laser: STOVL DR Laser Box
- Stock: Otrezat Stock
- Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
X13 Auto- Base Perk 1: Scavenger
- Base Perk 2: Tracker
- Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
- Ultimate Perk: Ghost
- Tactical: Stim
- Lethal: Drill Charge

Dead Silence

Likewise, as tradition has it, most of the Call Of Duty including Modern Warfare 2 have a limit of a total of 5 attachments on a weapon at a given time. However, the choice is totally up to you on which 5 attachments you want on your gun. The game gives you a variety of options to choose from that range from optics to even grips. 

However, there is always a combination of attachments that stands out among others just because of the capabilities it has,

For Minibak I recommend the following attachments:

  • Muzzle: XTEN RR-40
  • Barrel: BAK-9 279mm Barrel
  • Laser: STOVL DR Laser Box
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Rear Grip: True-Tac Grip
  • Improved Recoil Control
  • Increased Muzzle Velocity
  • Enhanced Weapon Stabilization
  • Improved Hip Fire Accuracy


  • Decreased Sprinting Speed to some extent
  • Laser might be a bit disturbing


Now, the ideology behind each of these attachments is to eliminate the weak points of the Minibak, and one of these weaknesses is the damage range and bullet velocity. So, in order to counter this area of the gun, I chose the XTEN RR-40 muzzle paired with the BAK-9 279 mm barrel, which gives me a big push in the right direction to boost the damage range and bullet velocity of the weapon. 

Next up, I make use of True Tac grip and Otrezat stock to eliminate another con of the weapon, which is Aim Down Sight (ADS). Through these attachments, you will achieve more mobility and better ADS time, which will greatly help you take care of enemies at close quarters. 

However, I recommend that you make use of hip fire in unexpected situations and also during very close-quarter battles. To also increase the Minibak’s hip fire capabilities, I have attached the STOVL DR Laser Box, which will, of course, increase the gun’s hip fire allowing you to hip fire more accurately.

COD MW2 Minibak Loadout Perks

Currently, one of the most important aspects of the Call Of Duty games is the perks, as they play a key role in all types of battles, so you should choose your perks wisely. However, some of the perks can work with any build, but some work best with certain types of builds.

And in my case, the best perks that suit me are the following:

  • Base Perk 1: Scavenger
  • Base Perk 2: Tracker
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost

First up is base perk 1, where I have chosen the Scavenger perk, which will be essential during the kill streaks.

  • Another top-tier perk to have is the Tracker perk, which will allow you to track your enemy’s movements 
  • Another useful bonus perk I went with is the Fast Hands perk which allows you to reload faster and also switch faster between primary and secondary weapons.
  • Finally, you have the Ghost perk as the ultimate because it will widely help you to conceal the location from the enemy and always keep your enemies on their toes.

Another very important part of a class setup is the equipment that you use with your weapon. The equipment plays a great role in your battles, and well-timed equipment use can give you an advantage over your foe.

That is why I went through the trouble to find out the best equipment that would suit my Minibak loadout, and I came up with the following:

  • Secondary: X13 Auto
  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

 The X 13 Auto is the best pistol that you can choose as it will never disappoint you in a dire situation due to its close-quarters capabilities.

  • Up next, I choose the stim and drill charge. I went with the stim because with this loadout, I will be chasing a lot of battles, and the ability to heal fully will help me take more fights. 
  • While the drill charge will be the most lethal to use, it can drill through any type of wall, even the floors and ceilings.
  • Lastly, the field charge that I recommend is dead silence, and it makes the best sense to have it as it will silence the footsteps and also hide you from the enemy’s recon abilities, but only if it is activated.

How To Unlock Minbak In COD MW2

In order to unlock the Minibak, you will have to go through a series of steps which will look something like the following:

  • Step 1: First, you will have to level up to the overall rank of 23, where you will unlock the Kastov 762.
  • Step 2: Next, you will have to level up the Kastov 762 to level 10, after which you will acquire the Kastov 545.
  • Step 3: Then you will again level up the Kastov 545 to level 13 to unlock the Kastov-74U.
  • Step 4: And then also level up the Kastov-74U to level 15, where you will receive the Vaznev-9K.
  • Step 5: Lastly, you have to level up the Kastov-74U to level 18, and it will unlock the Minibak.

There is a lot of misconception going around the internet saying that you also have to level up the Vaznek-9K to unlock the Minibak, but that is not the case. As you can clearly see in the above image, I unlocked the Minibak without leveling up the Vaznek-9K.

And with this, the guide on COD Modern Warfare 2 Best MINIBAK Loadout comes to an end, where I thoroughly discuss each of the variables that make the Minibak loadout a great success. However, if you still think that I missed something, then please do mention through the comment section down below.

Additionally, I suggest taking a look at Huzaifah Durrai’s comprehensive review of Modern Warfare 2 for an in-depth analysis.
