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.

In this guide, we’ll show you the best RAAL MG loadout 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?

Rear grip Bruen Q900 Grip Wrap

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 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.
