For the CDL Moshpit and ranked mode in Modern Warfare 2, players are forced to use competitive settings. When it comes to loadouts, this drastically limits the number of weapons and equipment we can choose to use. Here are the best weapon builds for competitive play, along with our suggested loadouts for the competitive play modes: Hardpoint, Search, and Control.
In the CDL Moshpit and Ranked Playlists, players use the exact same competitive settings that the pros use in the CDL. In Competitive Call of Duty, all weapons other than ARs and SMGs are banned, as are most grenades and perks. The idea is to get rid of anything that might be broken and offer free kills, which is a ton of stuff in CoD.
Below you can find the best competition-compliant attachment setups for current meta-weapons, one for the M4 and one for the Vaznev-9K. We’ve also provided our suggested grenades and perks for each of the competitive modes: Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and Control.
To note: While the Kastov-74u and Fennec 45 are both solid weapons, and can be equipped in Ranked and CDL Moshpit, that’s just because the devs are slightly behind. The pros have already GA’d these two weapons, and so in a few weeks, if not days, they will no longer be available for pick up in the Ranked or CDL Moshpit playlists. For this reason, we haven’t bothered to do any loadouts for these weapons, we think it’s worth getting used to for everyone with the current pro meta: the M4 and the Vaznev.
How to Create Custom Classes for Classified Moshpit and CDL
When you load into a game from Ranked or CDL Moshpit, none of your normal classes will be available, instead you will see your competitive custom class slots. These are completely separate from your regular custom classes. Here’s how to access and modify your competitive custom classes:
- Create a private lobby.
- Choose a CDL game mode.
- Tab to “Weapons”, and you’ll now see a new list of custom classes.
- These are your competitive classes, you can edit and save them in the private lobby.
- Load into a Moshpit or Ranked CDL mode and you can choose one of your competitive classes.
It’s annoying that this is the only way to edit them, but with all bugs in MW2 and Warzone 2this is to be expected.
We advise you to create the following classes from your ten slots, as a reference:
- Hardpoint AR
- Hardpoint SMG
- SnD AR That.
- SnD AR Def.
- SnD SMG Att.
- SnD SMG Def.
- Control AR Att.
- AR Control Def.
- Control SMG Att.
- SMG Control Def.
Although, if you’re strictly an SMG or AR player, and you know you won’t choose the other option, you obviously don’t need to create classes for the other weapon. We’ll cover the perks and gear choices for each of these classes later, but the actual attachment setup for the AR and SMG won’t change between modes..
Top-Ranked/Competitive AR Setup: M4
|Muzzle||FTAC Castle Comp||Recoil Stabilization (+0.60oz) / Pistol Kick Control (+0.25in)|
|Cannon Hightower 20″||Recoil Stability (+0.40 lbs) / Damage Range (+0.30 in)|
Precision Elite Factory Demo
|Aim Speed Down (-2.80 oz) / Aim Stability Idle (+1.80 in)|
Recoil Stability (+0.70 oz) / Idle Aim Stability (+0.30 in)
|under the barrel||TV tow truck handle||Hip Recoil Control (+0.60 oz) / Aim Speed Down (-0.30 in)|
This is spec’d for low recoil and long range, but if that’s too slow for you, consider changing the stock to the Tempus. And if you really don’t like the iron sights on the M4, ditch the Muzzle Break for a 1x.
The highest ranked/competitive SMG configuration: Vaznev-9K
|Muzzle||The Pendulum Bridge||Recoil Stabilization (+0.60oz) / Pistol Kick Control (+0.25in)|
|Aim down sight speed (-2.70 oz) / Aim down sight speed (-1.25 in)|
Aim down sight speed (-0.65 oz) / Fire sprint speed (-0.35 in)
|under the barrel||TV tow truck handle||Hip Recoil Control (+0.65 oz) / Hip Shot Accuracy (+0.30 in)|
A lot of people don’t like Kastov’s default iron sights. If that’s you then don’t worry too much about putting a 1x like the Slimline pro on the weapon, the slower handling speeds are negligible.
Highest Ranked/Competitive Handgun Setup: X12
|Barrel||XRK LUC-9||Aim for walking speed (-0.35 lbs) / damage range (+0.30 in)|
|Crone Lima-6||Aim down sight speed (-0.65 oz) / Fire sprint speed (-0.30 in)|
XRK Lighting Fire
|Aim down sight speed (-0.12 oz) / Fire sprint speed (-0.07 in)|
If you don’t want to rely on your trigger finger in panic situations, you can always pick up the X13, which is fully automatic.
Perks and grenades for each mode (attack and defense)
Now that you’ve built your AR, SMG, and handgun, you can prepare each class for each mode. We suggest having separate classes for attack and defense in control and research. Here are our loadout suggestions for each mode:
|Bonus Benefits||Field Upgrade|
|Hard point||Drilling costs||Glow||Hardened Fighter, Bomb Squad||To concentrate||Trophy system|
|Search and Destroy Attack||Frag Grenade||Smoke||Double Time, Bomb Squad||To concentrate||dead silence|
|Search and Destroy Defense||Frag Grenade||Glow||Double Time, Bomb Squad||To concentrate||dead silence|
|control attack||Semtex||Glow||Hardened Fighter, Bomb Squad||To concentrate||Trophy system|
|defense control||Semtex||Glow||Hardened Fighter, Bomb Squad||To concentrate||dead silence|
You will notice that there are no ultimate advantages, but these are prohibited in competition.
