The best Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II RAAL MG loadout

When playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare IIit’s best to come prepared with a powerful weapon that can take down opponents quickly. While there are a variety of weapons that fall into this category, currently, the best option is the RAAL MG, in terms of time to kill (TTK). This LMG is dominating the meta right now, thanks to its ridiculous damage output. This weapon has a ton of different attachment choices, making it tricky to build it as effectively as possible.

RAAL MG overview

The RAAL MG in Modern Warfare II.

As always, let’s first take a look at some of the RAAL MG’s characteristics so you know how to use it properly. The most important thing to be aware of (aside from the fast TTK) is that the RAAL is absurdly slow since it’s an LMG. In fact, it’s one of the slowest weapons in the entire game, making up for its tremendous power. It’s not just slow in terms of mobility, it also has sluggish aim down sights (ADS) times and terrible reload speeds. Still, even with all these downsides, the RAAL absolutely shreds through the competition, so long as you’re already aiming at your foes ahead of time. But what’s the best way to build the RAAL?

The main goal of this particular class setup is to reduce the RAAL MG’s sluggishness as much as possible. To do so, start with the FSS Ole-V Laser, which boosts your ADS speed, aiming stability, and sprint-to-fire speed. Then, we recommend using the Cronen Mini Red Dot (make sure to tune the eye position to Far) for a clean sight, though use whichever Optic you’re comfortable with.

Follow that up with the FSS Riot Stock for improved crouch movement speed, sprint speed, and ADS times. Next, you’ll want to use the 50 Round Belt Mag for faster ADS speed, better movement, faster reloads, and a boost to sprint-to-fire times.

Finish off the build with the Bruen Q900 Grip Wrap Rear Grip, which improves your ADS speed and sprint-to-fire times, making the RAAL feel much lighter. Keep in mind, all of these weapons will improve overall snappiness and mobility at the expense of control and accuracy, so you’ll want to adjust accordingly depending on the map you’re on.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be entering its second season, and while Activision hasn't officially unveiled all of the contents of the update, the company did make a few announcements to stir up excitement. Much like you'd expect with live-service games, Call of Duty is built on a seasonal system, wherein the game gets major content drops with each update.

Season 2 is gearing up for launch after a short delay, and for many fans, it's a make-or-break scenario, because reception to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 has been middling thus far.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 will finally fix its looting system
Characters shooting enemies in Warzone 2.0.

After a two-week delay, Activision will finally release Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 on February 15. Ahead of its release, Activision published a new blog post detailing what to expect from Season 2. Most notably, Season 2 will completely change how looting and inventory management works in Warzone 2.0, hopefully fixing one of the most heavily criticized things about the game.

Now, instead of the menu system featured since launch, Warzone 2.0 will work similarly to the first installment: loot will now drop to the ground in a pile. This willstreamline the looting process, allowing players to grab items much faster. In addition, Medium and Large Backpacks are being removed entirely, only allowing the use of Small Backpacks for the duration of the match. This will not only improve how players collect loot, but will also prevent players from hoarding Self-Revive Kits and other items.
