Despite what many people expected, the SP-R 208 Marksman Rifle has quickly risen to become one of the most popular weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

With more than 40 primary weapons, players have plenty of options to choose from when they make their selection. However, one of the guns that should be near the top of their list is the SP-R 20 8 marksman rifle.

The weapon offers users plenty of range and much more mobility than other sniper rifles you can choose from.

This article will take you through the best SP-R 208 loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and explain why you should add these attachments and run this weapon.

The Best SB-R 208 Loadout in MW2

MW2 SP R 208 1
  • Barrel: 12.5″ Carbon Barrel
  • Laser: Canted Vibro-dot 7
  • Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension
  • Comb: Aim-assist 406
  • Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt

One of the main reasons the SP-R 208 has become such a popular marksman rifle in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is its mobility. Therefore, we have focused on creating a build that helps enhance that even further while increasing other aspects of the weapon to make it a force to be reckoned with.

Of course, it still isn’t going to be the best run-and-gun weapon in the game, as it is a sniper, but it does make the weapon much more viable in fast-paced action.

Barrel: 12.5″ Carbon Barrel

The first attachment to add to your SP-R 208 loadout is the 12.5″ Carbon Barrel. The reason we opted for this barrel is that it improves your operator’s movement speed while using this weapon, which is essential for getting around the map quickly, and getting into great sniping positions.

On top of that, it also increases your ADS speed, which helps you quickly lock onto targets and get them in your sights before they can shoot back.

Laser: Canted Vibro-dot 7

Next up, we’ve opted for the Canted Vibro-dot 7, which is ideal for mid-range and increases your accuracy and chances of hitting, even when firing from the hip.

If you prefer quick scoping, consider the SP-X 80 6.6X Optic. You can see here which gun you should use for quick scoping in MW2.

Stock: ZRL T70 Pad Extension

For even better ADS speed, the ZRL T70 Pad extension is a fantastic choice. Not only does this attachment improve your ADS even further, but it also lets you move much quicker while in the crouched position.

As a sniper, chances are you will spend plenty of time in the crouched position, trying to sneak past the opposition to get in a great spot. If you can do this at pace, that is an added bonus.

Comb: Aim-assist 406

The Aim-assist 406 Comb is another essential attachment to ensure that this loadout provides you with plenty of speed and mobility. It will increase our sprint-to-fire time, which gives you much more confidence when contemplating 1v1 duels.

Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt

The final attachment you should add to your SP-R 208 loadout is the FSS ST87 Bold. This attachment ensures the time it takes to rechamber in between each shot is much quicker, an essential trait for MW2.

With such a fast time to kill, if you miss your first shot, you could easily get turned on and killed before you get another shot off if you don’t have this attachment on your loadout.
