Best Lachmann-762 Loadout in MW2

The Lachmann-762 is a dangerous gun, made even better by a great loadout and build.

Modern Warfare 2 is finally here, and that means a lot of new players will be enjoying their first taste of Infinity Ward’s latest shooter.

Thanks to MW2’s new Gunsmith 2.0, many loadouts for guns have become more varied than in the previous Call of Duty games. But some attachments do stand out.

One of the strongest guns in the game is the Lachmann-762 Battle Rifle, which can get you easy kills at a decent range.

The Polarfire-S suppressor helps hide the noise of your gunfire, while also increasing bullet velocity and the damage range.

With the Lockgrip Precision-40, you’ll be able to increase your aim steadiness when walking. This helps especially when moving from building to building, before setting up camp again.

The 15.9″ Lachmann Rapp Barrel is easily one of the best barrel attachments in the Lachmann progression tree. This allows for increased damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control.

We’ve gone with the SZ Mini for our optic, since it can be a great sight for both mid and long-range firefights. However, this one can certainly be changed depending on preference.

Finally, we have the Meer Recoil-56 Factory Stock. This simply further helps with recoil control, which is the main point of this loadout, thanks to the Lachmann-762’s existing high stats.

How to Unlock the Lachmann-762

You’ll unlock the Lachmann-762 by reaching Rank 16 in MW2’s Multiplayer.

If you have yet to reach this rank, following our guide on quickly leveling up in MW2 will see you unlock this gun fast.

Best Secondary to Use With the Lachmann-762

We recommend using the X13 Auto as a secondary for this loadout, thanks to it’s high mobility and fast fire rate.

Since the Lachmann-762 is mainly useful for setting up as a Sentinel and watching over areas, you’ll likely have enemies come close to deal with you. Pulling out the X13 Auto and hopefully making quick work of them will make things a lot easier.

However, if you want to use one of your basic perk slots and equip Overkill, it would be good to use the Bryson 800 shotgun.

Best Perks to Use With the Lachmann-762 in MW2

The best perks to use with the Lachmann-762 Battle Rifle in MW2 are:

  • Battle Hardened
  • Scavenger
  • Cold-Blooded
  • Ghost

This perk package is based on setting up in a small area and taking out your enemies from surprising angles.

While players may find where your shots are coming from soon, having the ability to stay off their radars as you quickly whittle down their numbers is a great idea.

However, you can check out every perk in Modern Warfare 2 if you want to be more agile and in mid-range gunfights.

Best Lachmann-762 Base Perks

  • Battle Hardened
  • Scavenger

Battle Hardened is a great choice as it will reduce the effects of enemy tacticals such as Flash, Stuns, EMPs and more. It also makes you immune from Snapshot Grenades, making it an essential perk for your loadout.

Scavenger will help you keep stocked up, so any enemies you defeat will replenish your supply of ammunition. Although not essential, it certainly helps when you’re close to getting your killstreaks.

Best Lachmann-762 Bonus Perk

  • Cold-Blooded

Cold-Blooded helps you hide further from enemies, by making you invisible to AI targeting systems as well as thermal optics.

You’re also hidden when running from one location to another, as you won’t trigger Tactical Cameras, Spotter Scopes, or Recon Drones.

Best Lachmann-762 Ultimate Perk

  • Ghost

Finally, the best ultimate perk for this loadout is Ghost. Being hidden from pesky UAVs is a blessing, since they’re an easy killstreak to get for all players, and they can become a nuisance to Sentinels.

This can also be exchanged for Birdseye. Your mini-map will be further zoomed out, and UAVs or Radars will show you the direction of your enemies, so you know when to strike. As an additional bonus, you also get a personal UAV sweep upon unlock.

Best Equipment to Use With the Lachmann-762

The best equipment to use with this Lachmann-762 loadout is:

  • TacticalShock Stick
  • LethalDrill Charge

Using a Shock Stick can disrupt opponents, making them easier to kill and halt their progress on objectives.

Our lethal of choice is the Drill Charge. While it can be fairly situational, having the ability to defeat (and further deter) other Sentinels or take back your camping location is worth the Drill Charge taking this slot.

Modern Warfare 2 Portable Radar

Best Field Upgrade For the Lachmann-762

The best Field Upgrade to use with the Lachmann-762 in MW2 is the Portable Radar.

This can help you track anyone who may be quickly entering your vicinity, and prepares you for a close firefight. It pairs better with the Birdseye ultimate perk.

However, you could also use the Tactical Cameras, as they’ll monitor your close area. This means you can track enemies approaching your destination, as well as anyone who is about to enter your sights.

Best Alternatives to Lachmann-762 in MW2

While the Lachmann-762 is an extremely dangerous weapon to be on the receiving ends of, there are a few alternatives that are equally strong:

  • FTAC Recon – This Battle Rifle has slightly higher damage than the Lachmann-762 at base value, losing some fire rate and range. But this can be quickly brought up using the right loadout.
  • TAQ-V – This dependable and excellent Battle Rifle has incredible recoil control, with high damage and decent accuracy. It’s a great choice for anyone who finds the recoil on the Lachmann-762 too high.

There are plenty of other weapons and platforms in Modern Warfare 2, so you should take a look and see which one may suit your needs.
