MW2 Lachman-556 Build

The 9″ Lachmann Rapp Barrel will increase your damage range, provide recoil control and increase bullet velocity! This will make your weapon more accurate over longer distances!

It will reduce your ADS speed and Movement speed but this will be boosted using other attachments!

The Cronen Mini Red Dot will make it easier to hit shots! This Red Dot Sight is great at short and long range!

The VX Pineapple grip will make sure any recoil is more centralized! This makes it so your shots will be more accurate!

The Lachmann S9 Factory is added to increase the mobility taken away when using the barrel. This will increase sprint speed, ADS speed, aim walking speed as well as crouch movement speed!

Using the FSS Ole-V Laser not only increases the ADS speed, it increases the sprint to fire speed! Also this laser is only visible in ADS.
