The FTAC Recon is a fantastic battle rifle and one you should certainly consider using in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. With the right attachments, it can be very effective from range, but also a very viable option for mid-range gunfights as well.

If you engage with enemies from the right distance with the right attachments on the FTAC Recon, you can easily take them down with just three bullets.

This article will show you the best FTAC Recon Loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The Best FTAC Recon Loadout in MW2

MW2 FTAC Recon 1
  • Rear Grip: Support CP90 Grip
  • Barrel: Bull Rider 16.5”
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Optic: HMW-20 Optic
  • Stock: Demo Precision Elite Factory

The attachments we have included in this article focus on increasing the FTAC Recon’s ability to take on medium to long-range gunfights and have plenty of success.

With these attachments and map awareness, you will find it easy to get a good position on your opponents and take them down quickly.

Rear Grip: Support CP90 Grip

The first attachment you should add to your FTAC Recon loadout is the Support CP90 rear grip. This grip is an excellent addition to the FTAC, as it provides more flinch resistance and aiming stability.

The small downside of adding this attachment is that your handling and mobility will drop slights, but your accuracy will increase, which is essential for gunfights at range.

Barrel: Bull Rider 16.5”

For the next attachment, we are looking at the barrel slot, more specifically, the Bill Rider 16.5” barrel. This option is a good one as it helps increase your damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control.

Unfortunately, you will need to rank up your weapon significantly before you can unlock it, but once you do, it will help make your gun a force to be reckoned with.

You can read our article on how to rank up quickly to help unlock it as fast as possible.

Underbarrel: VX Pineapple

With regard to choosing which attachment you should use for the underbarrel slot, the VC Pineapple is our choice here, as it further improves your recoil control and accuracy.

As we have touched on, the focus of this loadout is to ensure you can engage in gunfights at range, so having top-level recoil control and accuracy is essential.

Optic: HMW-20 Optic

Another attachment you can include on your loadout to make it even better for long-distance gunfights is the HMW-20 Optic. This optic is fantastic for long-range accuracy.

If you are not comfortable with this optic, you have plenty of others to choose from that will help achieve this effect.

Stock: Demo Precision Elite Factory

Finally, for the stock on this loadout, we have chosen to go with the Demo Precision Elite Factory. This stock is another factor that will reduce the recoil of your FTAC Recon, to help make it feel like you are firing a turret when you take shots at your opponents from a distance.

Alternative FTAC Recon Build

  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
