If there is one pistol in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that players either love or hate, it is the Basilisk.
If you use the Basilisk to good effect, then you will love this pistol. If you struggle to get to grips with it or keep dying to it in one bullet in-game, you probably hate it.
However, one thing every player can agree on is just how powerful this weapon can be in the right hands.
And when you add the right attachments to this weapon, it can become even more deadly.
This article will show you the best Basilisk loadout in Modern Warfare 2 for you to run your opponents ragged around the map.
The Best Basilisk Loadout in MW2
- Barrel: 10.5″ FTAC Arrow
- Laser: REVO-LSO 7MW
- Trigger Action: Match Grade
- Ammunition: .500 Snake Shot
- Rear Grip: Akimbo Basilisk
When it comes to creating the perfect Basilisk loadout, there are a couple of options available. However, for the most powerful loadout that will allow you to fly around the map, engaging in several close-combat fights, this loadout is the one to choose.
Barrel: 10.5″ FTAC Arrow
The first attachment you will want to include in your Basilisk loadout is the 10.5” FTAC Arrow. This attachment is an essential aspect of this loadout, as it increases the movement speed, bullet velocity, hip-fire accuracy, and damage range of the weapon.
As you would imagine, increased hip-fire accuracy is essential for this loadout, as we are running akimbo pistols, and ADS is not possible.
When running this loadout, you will likely want to run around the map at pace, engaging in as many close-range gun fights as possible. Therefore, increased movement speed is another excellent attribute.
However, sometimes you will find yourself in less-than-ideal gunfights at a slightly further range. To give yourself a fighting chance in these gunfights, you need the additional damage range and bullet velocity this weapon attachment provides.
Laser: REVO-LSO 7MW
The second attachment we have added to this Basilisk pistol loadout is the REVO-LSO 7MW laser. This attachment increases the hip fire accuracy of this loadout even further and also reduces the hip fire recoil, another important improvement for this weapon.
The last thing you want to happen is you engage in a gunfight, and fire your akimbo pistols a couple of times, only to see your operator pointing at the sky due to the recoil.
Finally, this attachment also increases your sprint-to-fire speed, making close-range gun fights even easier.
Trigger Action: Bryston Match Grade
The next attachment to consider for your Basilisk pistol loadout is the Bryson Match Grade trigger action. We love this attachment as it improves your aiming idle stability, trigger response time, and fire rate.
It is no secret that the time to kill speed in MW2 is incredibly fast, so having that additional improvement to the fire rate and trigger response time could be the difference between winning or losing a close gunfight.
Ammunition: .500 Snake Shot
Next, this ammunition attachment should need no introduction. The .500 Snake Shot ammunition improves the damage radius of each bullet, an essential attachment to allow you to engage in even more gunfights with your Basilisk. Rather than getting confined to tight corners and small rooms, this attachment can give you the confidence to engage from further away, making this loadout much more dynamic and usable in several situations.
Rear Grip: Akimbo Basilisk
Finally, this loadout would not be anywhere near as effective without the Akimbo Basilisk rear grip attachment. What’s better than having an incredibly powerful Basilisk pistol in your arsenal? Well, having two, of course.This pistol is already our pick for the best pistol in MW2, and this loadout only makes it even more powerful.
