Modern Warfare 2 Season 3 finally reintroduced the iconic FJX Imperium or Intervention back to the arsenal after countless requests from the community.

The lethal bolt-action sniper is devastatingly strong from a distance, which makes it top-tier in Warzone 2. However, in the fast-paced multiplayer environment, you need to use a specific meta build to help the FJX Imperium thrive.

Luckily, we've got you covered with an extremely powerful Intervention build that is deadly in MW2 multiplayer.

  • Barrel: LR-Retort 19"
  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Ammunition: 408. Explosive
  • Rear Grip: Skull-40

Kick off the FJX Imperium loadout with the LR-Retort 19" barrel and the Nilsound 90 muzzle which will offer bullet velocity, damage range, and most importantly movement speed for the fast pace of multiplayer.

Follow this up with the VLK LZR 7MW laser for a significantly better ADS time, making it easy to quickscope foes if you're skilled with a sniper.

Next, the 408. Explosive ammunition is essential as it gives the Intervention the incredible one-shot potential it's famous for.

Finally, round off the loadout with the Skull-40 Rear Grip for better sprint-to-fire and an even better ADS time.

  • Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Focus
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix


  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stim

In terms of the perks for the FJX Imperium in Modern Warfare 2, we recommend running Battle Hardened to reduce the effects of enemy lethals. There's nothing worse than being stunned for multiple seconds just to be taken down without the ability to fight back, this perk will counteract that.

Follow this up with Bomb Squad to give you more protection from killstreaks and Focus for the reduced flinch, allowing you to land every shot on target when ADSing. Don't forget to use Quick Fix in the Ultimate slot for the health regen upon every kill, this pushes you to play aggressively and will make racking up kills significantly easier.

Finally, round off the class setup with a Stim for a boost of health and a Throwing Knife for those satisfying insta-kills.

If the FJX Imperium is a little too slow in multiplayer for your liking, then it's time you picked up the SPX-80 sniper.

Strongest when used without a scope, the weapon can dominate matches if you're pinpoint accurate and you can land consistent headshots.

It's worth noting this gun will take a long time to master, but you'll certainly reap the rewards and rack up plenty of kills if you put in the hours of practice.

So, there you have it, that's the best FJX Imperium loadout in Modern Warfare 2's current meta. Be sure to check out our Modern Warfare 2 homepage for all of the latest news and guides.
