Whether you’re using the PDSW 528 for fun or to unlock new attachments, this loadout will help you get your eliminations at a lightning-fast rate.

Best PDSW 528 SMG Loadout Build in MW2

The 5 best attachments for the PDSW 528 build in MW2 are:

The Point-G3P 04 laser is all about reducing your hip firing recoil, which is perfect for the PDSW 528, as it is incredibly powerful at close range.

With the 9.5″ Duke-30 barrel, your ADS speed and hip recoil control will improve significantly. While it does drop your overall range, you shouldn’t worry as this SMG is about killing enemies fast and close.

The Stip-40 Grip is going to do wonders for your recoil control. The base PDSW 528 has some pretty nasty recoil, so with this equipped you should find your firing to be a lot more accurate.

Additionally, the TV Taccomb comb will make your ADS speed a lot quicker, and make snapping from sprinting to aiming faster too.

Finally, the Cob Stock will finish it all off with a nice boost to your overall mobility, while making your ADS that little bit quicker. This is the final touch on a truly lightning-fast PSDW 528 loadout in MW2.

How to Unlock the PDSW 528

Best Secondary to Use With PDSW 528

The best secondary to use alongside the PDSW 528 in MW2 is this M4 loadout. This will give you decent versatility when it comes to combat at both long and close range.

However, in order to use the M4, you’ll need to use the Overkill perk. If you don’t want to use up a perk to get the M4, then the Basilisk revolver will offer you decent range and easy two-hit kills.

Best Perks to Use With PDSW 528

The best perks to use with the PDSW 528 in MW2 are:

  • Overkill
  • Double Time
  • Fast Hands
  • High Alert

With this MW2 custom perk package equipped, you’ll be able to cover both long and close range, while reacting to nearby enemies with lightning-fast precision.

It accounts for all possibilities, promoting speed and reaction times while allowing you to escape from a challenging encounter with ease.

Of course, if you want to throw different perks into the mix, you absolutely can. There are so many excellent perks available, so you should definitely check out every perk and perk package in MW2 first.

Best PDSW 528 Base Perks

  • Overkill
  • Double Time

With Overkill, you can bring along a second primary weapon instead of just a pistol or launcher. This is great when your primary weapon is an SMG, as it can be quite limiting in bigger modes like Invasion.

Of course, if you are happy with just a pistol, then you can switch it out for Bomb Squad or Battle Hardened.

Both of these reduce the effects of enemy tactical and lethal equipment, which will allow you to run and gun with a bit more freedom.

Finally, Double Time increases the duration of your Tactical Sprint as well as your crouch movement. It’s just useful for getting you around the map quickly and making a tactical retreat safely when needed.

Best PDSW 528 Bonus Perk

  • Fast Hands

Using the Fast Hands bonus perk is incredibly useful with the PDSW 528 in MW2. As its fire rate is so high, being able to reload quickly will allow you to essentially continually fire.

Additionally, if you’re using the Overkill perk, you’ll want to be able to switch weapons quickly. Fast Hands improves your weapon switching speed considerably, so you’ll definitely need it.

Best PDSW 528 Ultimate Perk

  • High Alert

While perks like Ghost and Quick Fix would work well with this loadout too, High Alert is definitely the best ultimate perk.

It notifies you with directional info when an enemy outside of your field of view spots you. This is perfect for players who want fast mobility and to be able to react quickly to unknown threats.

Best Equipment to Use With PDSW 528

The best equipment to use with this PDSW 528 loadout is:

  • Tear Gas
  • Molotov Cocktail

Both the Tear Gas and Molotov Cocktail equipment in MW2 are perfect for causing chaos and confusion. For example, the Molotov Cocktail will smoke players out of hiding spots and cause continuous damage.

They, therefore, work excellently with the PDSW 528 as it requires catching other players off guard to pull off eliminations flawlessly.

Best Field Upgrade to Use With PDSW 528

The best Field Upgrade to use with the PDSW 528 in MW2 is Battle Rage. It boosts health regeneration, increases resistance to Tactical Equipment, and replenishes Tactical Sprint continuously.

You’ll really need it as getting close to an enemy to successfully take them out with the PDS2 528 is always going to be risky. Having Battle Rage available to help you escape unscathed is very important.

Alternatively, the Munitions Box field upgrade is always helpful. It allows you to replenish your ammunition, and as the PDSW 528 burns through ammo quickly, it can be handy to have some spare.
