It’s no lie that the SA-B 50 needs some love in a Marksman Rifle category littered with better options, but that doesn’t mean you need to forget all about it. The SA-B 50 is a crucial part of the new Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith and will be integral to unlocking attachments for the better members of its family tree. So, we need to find some sort of middle ground here and with this best SA-B 50 loadout and attachment medley, you might just avoid losing your mind grinding this weapon.

Best MW2 SA-B 50 Loadout: Attachments

Unlike other members of the Bryson Long Rifle platform, the SA-B 50 is not a one-shot kill weapon, unless it's at point-blank range, which is not ideal for a Marksman Rifle. Instead, it's caught in limbo between its current category and the Battle Rifles, having the same power as the latter but keeping the bolt-action that is a temperament of the sniper.

So what do we do with the best SA-B 50 loadout? Basically, we need to make it as fast as possible, and push it toward a Battle Rifle, as there are no attachments that can make this a one-shot gun. So, attaching the FSS ST-87 bolt is the best place to start, allowing for a much faster "rechambering" time. Adding the Assault Stock, FTAC Ripper underbarrel, and Zulu-60 Muzzle will replenish any lost accuracy too. Then finally, an 18" barrel will help with enemies at range, but keep it a two-shot kill at all distances.

Best MW2 SA-B 50 Loadout: Perks And Equipment

We'll be needing to fly as far under the radar as humanly possible for your SA-B 50 Loadout, meaning that Ghost, despite its flaws, is required in the ultimate perk category. Focus, Double Time, and Bomb Squad prove efficient in the other selections, with Double Time also being a banker.

You might want to get used to using your utility too, as injuring players with a semtex mean you can get away with one-tapping enemies with great speed, or immobilising enemies with a stun will help you get those two-shot kills in.

It's worth wondering if the best SA-B 50 Loadout will get some upgrades in the coming weeks, joining the rest of its esteemed family as the best Marksmen rifles and snipers in MW2.
