The LMG meta in Modern Warfare 2 has yet to be fully explored, but if you're sick of being caught reloading with your assault rifle, well, this best RPK loadout is exactly what you need. The RPK is legendary in CoD, and has always been a favourite of players in the campaigns etc. But, it's never quite hit the forefront in multiplayer, until now.

Best MW2 RPK Loadout: Attachments

Weirdly, the MW2 RPK isn't quite as bouncy as usual guns and instead of being used as a long-range weapon like you might be used too, this year, the RPK is best used exactly like an AR - and you won't need to worry about not standing up to the likes of the M4, this best MW2 RPK loadout absolutely shreds. 

Ripping off your stock will get the ball rolling nicely, allowing you to match the speed of an AR. Then it's quite straightforward. A long barrel to minimise damage drop off, a rear grip to hold the gun straight, reducing recoil, and a muzzle that can contain its meaty chomp, and you're set.

Best MW2 RPK Loadout: Perks And Equipment

With an LMG, normally you'll be mounting up and staying put all game, until a Drill Charge catches you out. Well, not in the best MW2 RPK loadout. Instead, you'll want a balanced set of perks. Double Time and Bomb Squad are suitable (there's no need for Scav considering you have a 75-round mag), Focus for ADS stability and flinch reduction, and Birdseye, which will allow you to mimic a classic minimap, will serve you amazingly.

Then, a short-range pistol is quite necessary, just in case it gets too hot to handle. A stun grenade and semtex is great for flushing out campers too, and Dead Silence will allow for some easy rotations to be made without audio detection.
