Signal 50 is one of the best guns in COD Modern Warfare 2 under the sniper rifles category. It is also one of the weapons that you will be able to obtain early on in the game, and by using the best loadout and class setup, you can turn Signal 50 into one of the most powerful weapons of COD Modern Warfare 2. 

To dominate the opponents, you have to build the best loadouts for Signal 50 in COD Modern Warfare 2, along with the most tactical class setup for the weapon. 

Key Takeaways

My first loadout will focus on delivering the perfect long-range headshots while keeping the bullet velocity stable. Furthermore, for the sake of the rifle, I will be focusing on factors like handling speed and movement speed as well.

Below are the best loadout options for Signal 50 in MW2.

  • Receiver: Signal 50 
  • Optic: SZ Hollow Therm 
  • Rear Grip: SA Finesse Grip  
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser 
  • Barrel: 29” TV Kilo-50 
  • Comb: Aim Assist 406 
  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90 Silencer 
  • One-shot kill capability
  • Recoil Smoothness
  • Increased Bullet Velocity
  • Recoil Stabilization
  • Aiming Idle Stability


  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Reduced Walking Speed
  • Laser visible in ADS


I believe Signal 50 is no less than a nightmare. If used in the right way, the gun is capable of dealing heavy damage to enemies while you stay on cover. With the loadout mentioned above, I can guarantee that you will be able to take down an enemy from the opposite side of a map without taking much damage yourself. 

Perks And Equipment

The following perks and equipment are suitable for the weapon if you are going to choose the loadout I mentioned above. 

  •  Perk 1: Overkill 
  •  Perk 2: Double Time 
  •  Bonus Perk: Cold Blooded 
  •  Ultimate Perk: Birds Eye 
  •  Lethal Equipment: Thermite 
  •  Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade 

Secondary Weapon

For the secondary weapon, I recommend the Lachmann Sub, which is a modern MP5 but better. Since you will be covering long range with your sniper rifle, you will need a weapon that will cover medium to close range, and no weapon is better than the Lachmann Sub for that purpose.

Using the Lachmann Sub, you will be able to cover a close to medium range, and you will eventually have weapons that will help you deal damage from a distance as well as in close quarters. 

The recoil rate of the Lachmamn Sub is fairly good, and the DPS rate is also very high. With the right selection of secondary weapons, you will be able to become a pro player there, no matter what combat range.

My second loadout is more about the damage and improved ADS speed along with good mobility.

Here are all the features and attachments I use in the loadout for signal 50. 

  • Laser: Schlager Peq Box IV 
  • Underbarrel: FSS Shark Fin 90 
  • Barrel: FSS Jet Stream 
  • Rear Grip: Stalwart Grip 
  • Stock: FSS Echo Stock
  • Fast ADS SPeed
  • One shot kill 
  • Increased Bullet Velocity
  • Accurate Sprint to Fire Speed


  • Aim Walking Stability
  • Reduced Walking Speed


The loadout will significantly improve your Aim Down Sight so that any incoming targets can be spotted as fast as possible so you can cover yourself and counterattack efficiently. While the mobility with the loadout is not that great, you will still get a good amount of damage out of this build and better accuracy overall with signal 50. 

Perks And Equipment

Signal 50 is best for long-distance combat and is a highly damaging sniper rifle that can be utilized in extensive maps. Maps like Invasion are played in the best way by using sniper rifles like the Signal 50.

While using the sniper rifle, it is important to keep a low profile and use as many covers as possible no matter if you’re playing 6v6 mode or any other mode.

Below are the recommended perks for you so that you will be able to use the weapon from a distance In the safest way possible. 

  • Perk 1: Overkill 
  • Perk 2: Tracker 
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands, Resupply, Or Focus
