Modern Warfare 2 is now the main focal point for Call of Duty fans for the next two years, and with the game being in full release now, players are amped to check out all the weapons.

One weapon that is back yet again is the M16, and this powerful AR has been rather popular during the limited time beta.

We're going to runover the best loadout players will be able to use within Modern Warfare 2 for the M16.

The Best M16 Loadout In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

The M16 is one of the best ARs within Modern Warfare 2 and it features a ton of the qualitys that we've seen from previous iterations of COD.

With this weapon offering high damage, we're going to build a loadout that improves the accuracy and recoil control of the weapon along with other features.


  • Muzzle
    • Forge-Tac Castle Comp
  • Barrell
    • None
  • Optic
    • Cronen Mini Red Dot
  • Laser
    • None
  • Amumunition
    • None
  • Stock
    • Demo Fade Pro Stock
  • Underbarrel
    • VX Pineapple Vert Grip
  • Magazine
    • No Magazine
  • Rear Grip
    • Sakin ZX Grip

This class is designed to give you the most nibble weapon in all sorts of fights by increasing its recoil control and ADS speeds whenever possible.

The Muzzle provides more damage range, so you can ensure you're doing its best at the ranges you're fighting in, with a bit extra to boot.

As for the Barrel, its one of the slots with the most to both gain and lose. Whatever way you build it, something suffers. So, in our eyes, it's best to focus on recoil/accuracy.

An Optic is down to preference, we have the Cronen Mini Red Dot, but if you prefer the iron sights, you can pick up a front barrel instead.

The selected Stock provides the most benefit, sacrificing small amounts of movement speed to dramatically increase accuracy.

Our Underbarrel is the best option with no drawbacks, adding a small buff to the ADS speed.

With the Rear Grip, I find Leather Grip a solid option with no draw backs - giving another small buff to ADS speed.


Any secondary is fine for now!
