Is it really a Call of Duty without the M16? The three-round burst weapon has become part of the furniture in the Modern Warfare series' weapon room. Having been returned to its former glory during the recent two years, the MW2 M16 classes are back again and are trying to worm their way into the meta. So, if you fancy rolling back the years, here is the best MW2 M16 class, attachments, and perks. 

Best MW2 M16 Class: Attachments

In Modern Warfare 2, the M16 comes with a familiar feel to it, although its speed, or lack of it, can be described as quite stodgy. Therefore, you'll be wanting to use the M16 in a more reserved manner, rather than bunny-hopping around like you would with an M4 class. Instead, you're going to get results from posting up and pre-aiming, where it can be devastating.

The current crop of attachments might not best reflect how powerful this MW2 M16 can be, yet we can still mould it into quite a formidable AR. You'll be able to select an optic, unlike with other weapons, given that the barrels are all sub-par. Then, a muzzle, grip, and stock that allows for recoil management is required, before you gloss over any loss of speed with an efficient underbarrel selection.

  • Optic - FTAC M-Sub 12”
  • Muzzle - Forge-Tac Castle Compensator 
  • Underbarrel - FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Rear Grip - D15 Grip
  • Stock - Corio Precio Factory

 

Best MW2 M16 Class: Perks And Equipment 

The MW2 beta gives players access to the X13 Side Arm blueprint through its exclusive rewards, and the automatic pistol is quite a necessity with the MW2 M16 classs, given that you can quickly lose count of how many bursts you've unleashed and you might need a get-out-of-jail-free card in close proximity. Your semtex and flash grenades will also be quite crucial, as you'll often do grievous harm with one burst, but might need to finish off a foe who has cowered behind some cover. 

While the new perk system continues to scratch heads, you'll likely want to be going for Double Time and Scavenger in your first slot, as you'll need to be quick on your rotations after cleaning out the area you're operating in. Focus is a great choice for ARs and other long-distance guns, allowing for improved accuracy with sustained ADS time. Finally, Ghost is the choice for Perk 3, although you'll only have it activated after eight minutes of the game.

  • Secondary - X13
  • Tactical - Flash Grenade
  • Lethal - Semtex
  • Perk 1 - Double Time & Scavenger
  • Perk 2 - Focus
  • Perk 3 - Ghost 
  • Field Upgrade - Trophy System

This best MW2 M16 class might not necessarily be the most mobile gun on the game, but if you're accurate, you'll be poaching players off head glitches with ease.
