FJX Imperium: best loadouts for Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2

The Intervention sniper has returned to Call of Duty in the form of the FJX Imperium. This new sniper is available in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2, as part of the Season 3 battle pass, offering a healthy dose of nostalgia and power. It works a lot like you remember from the original 2009 Modern Warfare 2, but does offer a lot more customization this time around. With that in mind, let’s dive into the best FJX Imperium loadouts across Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2.

Recommended loadout:

Barrel TAC-Command 19-inch
Laser VLK LZR 7mw
Stock FJX Kilo-TAC
Bolt FJX Blast
Ammunition .408 Explosive

During Season 3, Activision reintroduced one-shot snipers in Warzone 2.0, but you’ll need a bolt-action rifle to utilize this feature. Thankfully, the FJX falls into this category and we’ll go over the best one-shot loadout below.

Start with the TAC-Command 19-inch Barrel, which improves the weapon’s recoil control, aim down sights (ADS) speed, and bullet velocity. Then, we advise using the VLK LZR 7mw Laser for faster ADS speed, better aiming stability, and improved sprint-to-fire speed. After that, we recommend picking the FJX Kilo-TAC Stock for faster crouch movement speed, sprint speed, ADS times, and sprint-to-fire speed. To boost the rechambering speed, we also advise using the FJX Blast Bolt. Then, finish off the build with the .408 Explosive Ammunition to earn those one-shot downs to fully-plated enemies.

With this build, you’ll be able to quickly pull off shots and if you connect with the head, you’ll down the opponent in just one hit. Just keep in mind, you’ll need to lead your shots significantly since the .408 Explosive rounds penalize bullet velocity so much.

Recommended loadout:

Barrel TAC-Command 19-inch
Laser VLK LZR 7mw
Stock FJX LUX-7
Rear Grip Skull-40
Carry Handle Field-Wrapped Handle

When it comes to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, the FJX deals enough damage by default, so you don’t need to add explosive rounds to secure one-hit eliminations. This build is similar to the Warzone 2.0 loadout, but with a few changes here and there.

Stick with the TAC-Command 19-inch Barrel for its boost to recoil control, ADS speed, and bullet velocity. Likewise, continue using the VLK LZR 7mw Laser to help with ADS speed, aiming stability, and sprint-to-fire speeds. After that, swap over to the FJX LUX-7 Stock for better aiming stability, aim walking speed, and sprint speed. Utilize the Skull-40 for faster sprint-to-fire speed and ADS times. Finally, equip the Field-Wrapped Handle Carry Handle, which improves your crouch movement speed and ADS speed.

This build is more so meant for aggressive playstyles and is suited to 6v6 maps. Though, it’s totally usable on the larger maps, too.

The best weapons in Modern Warfare 2: every gun ranked
Soldiers running in Modern Warfare II.

Your performance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2  has a lot to do with the weapon you come equipped with. Sure, a skilled player can excel with most weapons in the game, but having the best firearm for any given situation will lead you to more victories -- regardless of your playstyle. Modern Warfare 2 has around 50 primary weapons across seven categories, each with different stats, strengths, and weaknesses.

The meta in Call of Duty games shifts constantly as weapons are added and tweaked, so it's always a good idea to stay on top of the latest updates. In this guide, we'll rank each primary weapon in Modern Warfare 2  across all categories (with the exception of the Riot Shield). This ranking is in descending order, with the first spot being the best and the last spot being the worst. We'll also link to loadout guides for the weapons on this list so you know exactly which attachments to use.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III has seemingly leaked thanks to Monster
Five main characters from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

It looks like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III will be the title of this year's Call of Duty game. Following several leaks, including an undeniable one connected to Monster Energy, a joking tweet from the official Call of Duty Twitter account appears to confirm that this is true.
Leaks suggesting that 2023's Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III have existed for months, but ramped up recently. On July 17, the Call of Duty Twitter account put up tweets asking if Operators, weapons, and bundles from Modern Warfare II should carry over to this year's game and teasing that a big reveal would happen alongside the unveiling of Season 5. Later that day, Bloomberg's Jason Schreier stated that this is a Sledgehammer Games-led project that started as an expansion and morphed into a full game.
Then, Monday morning, images of Monster Energy promotional materials connected to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III emerged on Twitter, giving us confirmation of the name and our first look at the game's logo.

A leak like this is pretty difficult to deny, so Activision decided to play along with it. "Whew. Mondays," the official Call of Duty account tweeted. "Anyone have an energy drink they can spare?"
While not a traditional, explicit announcement, this tweet confirms the validity of the Monster Energy leak and affirms that this year's Call of Duty will be a direct follow-up to 2022's Modern Warfare II. Now, we'll just have to wait and see when Activision decides to officially reveal more about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III itself. 
Because it's not officially announced yet, we don't know what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III's release date or launch platforms are. Still, it's likely that it will launch across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox sometime this October or November after Microsoft's Activision Blizzard acquisition closes.

You’re probably using the wrong close-range Warzone weapon

Following the Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded update, players have flocked to various close-range weapons, including the Lachmann Sub, the FSS Hurricane, or the ISO 45. However, these close-range weapons pale in comparison to the X13 Auto, a sidearm that has found its way to the top of the close-range meta.

The beauty of this weapon is that, not only does it take down your foes faster than any SMG in the game, but it also doesn't require the use of the Overkill perk, as it's just a sidearm. But how exactly should you build the X13 Auto? Here's a recommended loadout, which focuses on practicality up-close. Just use it while you still can, as it may not last long.
