Best Search and Destroy Class in MW2

While Warzone might dominate much of the talk about Call of Duty these days, a sizable population still enjoys the multiplayer modes of the yearly releases, including Search and Destroy. Here's a look at the best class loadout players can use in the fan-favorite mode.

Best weapon to use in Search and Destroy in Modern Warfare 2

In a mode like Search and Destroy in MW2, where players only have one life, it's essential to have the right weapon for the right situation. It seems like most players have settled on the TAQ-56 Assault Rifle as being the best weapon. This is a loadout that should work out great in Search and Destroy.

  • Barrel: 17.5" Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Stock: TV Cardinal Stock
  • Rear Grip: FSS Combat Grip

When it comes to weapon accessories, a lot of it does come down to personal preference, and players will want to tinker around with what works best for them. There are alternatives to using the TAQ-56, such as the M4, Kastov 762, or even the MP5 for SMG fans.

Best secondary weapon to use in Search and Destroy in MW2

The secondary weapon doesn't always come into play in Search and Destroy, but players must ensure they have something viable here. The Combat Knife makes players run faster when equipped, so that's always a good choice.

Players who want to use a weapon in this slot can opt to use something like the Basilisk with the Akimbo attachment. This makes it work a lot like a shotgun at close range, making it very strong when things get up close and personal.

Best Search and Destroy perks in MW2

The best perks to use in Search and Destroy in MW2 are the following:

  • Double Time
  • Fast Hands
  • Bomb Squad
  • Ghost

These are a good assortment of perks to choose from, as Double Times gives the speed buff, Fast Hands allows reloading while sprinting, Bomb Squad makes it easier to survive explosives, and Ghost makes the player invisible to UAVs. There are some other perks to choose from, but players can't go wrong with these four.

Perks have been an important part of Call of Duty for years, which is now different in Modern Warfare 2. A popular perk in other game modes would be Overkill, a perk that gives players the ability to carry two primary weapons, but that's not the case in Search and Destroy. Instead, players want to focus on Double Time as their first staple, as that increases sprint time and crouching movement speed.
