The Best Sakin MG38 Loadout For Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer

Unlocking weapons in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" requires a bit of an investment. As usual with the series, players gain access to some selections by leveling up their overall rank. In other cases, players unlock additional varieties by leveling up specific weapons. In fact, of the game's 42 unlockable options, 23 require the latter method.

Luckily, "Modern Warfare 2" players don't need to unlock every gun to find an adequate killing tool. With the right modifications, players can put together a powerful M4 loadout, Bryson 800 loadout, or even a Sakin MG38 loadout. The Sakin, like other LMGs, is great for unloading large amounts of damage through sustained fire, but it's much slower than many choices when it comes to handling, aiming down sights, and weapon swapping. With the right adjustments, however, players can enjoy greater mobility for those frenetic "Modern Warfare 2" matches without sacrificing the Sakin MG38's stopping power.

The ideal attachments increase the Sakin MG38's ADS speed

In "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," LMGs tend to work best for individuals who play a bit more methodically. They're not exactly the weapon of choice for running and gunning around corners as fast as possible thanks to the lengthy amount of time it takes to aim one after sprinting. That's why some of the best attachments one can use on the Sakin MG38, according to both Dexerto and The Loadout, will up that ADS speed.

In terms of Rear Grip, Optic, and Laser, both sites agreed that the Bruen Q900 Grip Wrap, Cronen Mini Pro, and Schlager PEQ Box IV are optimal choices. The Bruen Q900 Grip Wrap and Schlager PEQ Box IV both increase the Sakin's ADS speed. The Grip Wrap also provides an additional boost to sprint-to-fire speed at the cost of recoil control. However, the Sakin isn't too ideal for extreme ranges, so the loss isn't great. As a sight, the Cronen Mini Pro reduces ADS speed, but its clear picture and dot sight is a great improvement over the Sakin's iron sights.

Each website proposed different attachments to take up the last two slots, but The Loadout's Sakin Side Grip recommendation provides aiming stability without any sacrifices. Finally, Dexerto's idea to add the Cheetah STM Stock increases one's aim walking speed and even sprint speed to make the Sakin even more mobile. Mixing and matching these recommended attachments with one's personal preferences can turn the Sakin MG38 into a powerful asset for any multiplayer match.
