Assault Rifles. The bread and butter of Call of Duty gameplay, yet criminally undervalued. Modern Warfare 2 Assault Rifles (2009) are some of the most timeless weapons in the franchise’s history. Yes, we’re looking at you, ACR. With the new gunsmith options come a whole new catalogue of Modern Warfare 2 Assault Rifles looking to write their own pages in the history books, and maybe, just maybe, you might spy a timeless classic. But, you’ll be wondering what is the best Modern Warfare 2 Assault Rifle list, and we’ve got you covered…

Best Modern Warfare 2 Assault Rifles

3 - Lachmann-556

The first Modern Warfare 2 assault rifle is a steady pick for your chosen weapon, especially during the beta before later-unlocked guns take over. While it might soon be eclipsed by guns further down the list, the Lachmann-556 is a great starting point on the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifles list. It’s not greatly blessed with range, but you’ll make quite a bloodbath if you can find those areas between SMG and LMG ranges. Perfect for a sweet spot.

2 - M4

Well, you’ll already know what you’re getting from the M4. It's a staple of the assault rifle class, and it’s as reliable as ever before. The familiar iron sights return that make piercing opponents a joyful experience, while the body itself bares little recoil and bounce while packing quite a punch. You might soon find that the Modern Warfare assault rifle developers will be keen to show the M4 a bit of love, given its status in the Call of Duty franchise.

Looking at giving the M4 a go, we have the best M4 loadout in Modern Warfare 2.

 

1 - TAQ-56

Fledged with a brand-new name, the TAQ-56 might be more familiar to you described as the SCAR. Boasting a high fire rate and a lot of mobility with its favourable iron sights, the TAQ-56 is the last assault rifle to be unlocked, and it appears to be worth the wait. With the new gunsmith allowing you to transfer over attachments from other weapons to instantly build its kit, you’ll soon be able to control its temperament and evolve the already-comfortable gun into the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifle.

Bonus - Lachmann-762

Technically not an Assault Rifle, the Lachmann-762 is classed as a “Battle Rifle”, which comes as a class for the first time ever in the Call of Duty franchise. A dadbod version of the smaller aforementioned 556 variants, the Lachmann-762 is a direct brother of the FN FAL. Deadline heavy single-fire blows to enemies, the Lachmann-762 can also be quite deadly in the right hands, making it a serious contender to rival the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifles. 

The Assault Rifle class is destined to rule over Modern Warfare 2, given its versatility and appeal to map design, so it understanding the best MW2 ARs is definitely for the best. Shoot straight, soldiers.
