If you’re hopping into the new Call of Duty League playlists, here’s every loadout you should be using in MW2 CDL Moshpit.

In the Call of Duty League, not everything goes. In fact, there is a significant list of restricted items that will have many players changing their loadouts specifically for the CDL mode.

But with fan-favorite weapons like the SP-R 208 completely banned from the mode, what are the best loadouts that you should be using to dominate in MW2’s CDL Moshpit?

Top 3 Best CDL Moshpit Loadouts in MW2


  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: KAS-1 381 MM
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Rear Grip: True Tac Grip

With silencers restricted, the Lockshot KT85 (unlocked at Lachmann Sub Lvl 10) instead offers a boost to Horizontal and Vertical Recoil control. As usual, the KAS-1 381mm (unlocked at Vaznev-9k Lvl 14) is a must-have, thanks to its increase to Damage Range, Hip Fire Accuracy, and Bullet Velocity.

The Commando Foregrip (unlocked at BAS-P Lvl 8) offers additional Aiming Idle Stability, and Recoil Stabilization, despite lowering ADS Speed.

The Otrezat Stock (unlocked at Vaznev-9k Lvl 5) will help you rush those important points, with some additional Aim Walking Speed and Sprint Speed. And the True-Tac Grip (unlocked at Vaznev-9k Lvl 10) balances out the loadout, giving additional Sprint to Fire Speed and ADS Speed that was lost from adding some of the other essential attachments.


  • Muzzle: Komodo Heavy
  • Barrel: 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Phase-3 Grip
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Rear Grip: Demo Cleanshot Grip

With no silencer option allowed, the Komodo Heavy (unlocked at Lachmann-556 Lvl 18) is your best muzzle attachment, boosting Horizontal Recoil Control in a big way. However, it does negatively impact both ADS Speed and Aiming Stability as a trade-off.

The Phase-3 Grip (unlocked at Vaznev-9K Lvl 9) offers Aiming Idle Stability, Hip Fire Accuracy, and Recoil Stabilization, at the cost of Walking Speed and ADS Speed once more.

The best barrel for the TAQ-56 has always been the 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel (unlocked at TAQ-56 Lvl 12), primarily due to its Damage Range and Bullet Velocity boost. However, it also brings additional Hip Fire Accuracy to the weapon, for those clutch close-range encounters.

And the Demo Cleanshot Grip (unlocked at TAQ-V lvl 13) works wonders at restoring lost Sprint to Fire Speed and ADS Speed, despite a small knock to Recoil Control. 5.56 High Velocity (unlocked at STB 556 Lvl 7) rounds are also a good option in CDL where Bullet Velocity often matters more than Damage Range.

  • Muzzle: XTEN Ported 290
  • Barrel: Hightower 20″ Barrel
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Stock: Demo Precision Elite Factory
  • Rear Grip: XTEN Grip
Best CDL M4 Loadout in MW2

Finally, to replace your trusty (but banned) silencer, the XTEN Ported 290 (unlocked at HCR 56 Lvl 16) offers up premium Vertical Recoil Control. Partner this with the Hightower 20″ (unlocked at M4 Lvl 15) barrel to boost Bullet Velocity, Damage Range, Recoil Control, and Hip Fire Accuracy – ensuring that the M4 hits hard but hardly moves.

Also boosting Recoil Control is the Demo Precision Elite Factory (unlocked at 556 Icarus Lvl 8) stock, which also lends a hand to Aiming Stability. However, it will decrease your overall speed and ADS Speed a little as a trade-off.

However, the XTEN Grip (unlocked at FSS Hurricane Lvl 5) saves the day by restoring our Sprint to Fire and ADS Speed. And the 5.56 High Velocity (unlocked at STB 556 Lvl 7) rounds will ensure you’re killing enemies before they kill you, with additional Bullet Velocity.

Right now, a lot of players are complaining about loadouts not working in CDL Moshpit, leading to a great deal of frustration. But there is a trick to get your CDL Moshpit loadouts working as intended!

With all Battle Rifles, Shotguns, Light Machine Guns, and a great deal of Marksman Rifles all restricted, these three weapons will be the meta in CDL Moshpit.
