You can argue that Call of Duty weapons are iconic, and they are kind of broken and overpowered, but if there is one fact that you cannot deny, it is that SMGs completely dominate Call of Duty meta. They are a completely different beast and a weapon archetype that has its play style.
SMGs are designed to combat close-range to middle-range opponents, but with a precise loadout, you can outrange some rifles too. Sniper rifles, on the other hand, well, they are something else.
But SMGs are just a little behind, and the fact that you can engage more vigorous opponents with better weapon archetypes proves that SMGs should be used more often.
MX9 is one of the more underrated and niche pick in the Call of Duty sandbox, but don’t let this fool you, this weapon packs solid attachments and perks. You have to try it once.
Best MX9 Loadout Modern Warfare 2
MX9 belongs to the AUG AR family, but it does not belong to the AR archetype. This is a submachine gun designed to shred and do the job as quickly as possible.
Your opponents will die before they can blink or think twice about why they even decided to play this game. AUG is quite an iconic weapon type, and even in games, their weapons are quite popular.
To be effective with an SMG, you need to know how SMGs work or how should they work. In the right hands, you will come victorious in every close combat gunfight if you know what you are doing with your SMG.
so keeping that in mind, you need to organize your loadout in a way, that amplifies your SMG performance. We are looking forward to low recoil management, quick movement while handling an SMG, and improved range.
The best possible loadout for MX9 you can equip is
- Stock: Bruen STB 556 Stock
- Comb: FTAC C11 Riser
- Muzzle: AVR-T90 Comp
- Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip
- Magazine: 32-Round Mag
Allow me to explain why this loadout works so much better than one could expect.
The 32-round magazine hits the sweet spot between having enough ammo to get yourself enough kills and not hurting your reload speed.
The only thing that might not work in your favor is fewer ads time while using this particular mag but it’s an SMG, hip-fire your way through the sudden ambushes.
FTAC C11 Riser is the perfect choice for high handling and an increase in mobility. Gives you a fair reason to go for an aggressive run and gun playstyle
For muzzle attachment, AVR-790 Compensator helps maintain and reduce the horizontal spread of the weapon as well as lowering the vertical kick.
Underbarrel grip attachment Bruen Q900 grip noticeably increases sprint-to-aim speed, which means that as soon as you stop running, you can immediately aim down your gun without any delay.
And for the final addition, Bruen STB 556 Stock completes your SMG and turns it into a laser machine. Significantly reduces the recoil and considering how SMGs shoot fast, the initial kick can be distracting in a gunfight. So anything that helps tone down the recoil helps.
Best MX9 Loadout: Perks And Equipment
Perks are iconic and crucial parts of modern warfare PVP arenas. These perks further enhance your gameplay and provide extreme benefits that you can’t help but build your loadouts accordingly. Who wouldn’t love damage resistance or complete ghosting in a PVP match where you are invisible on the enemy radar?
A huge advantage over your opponents and in some cases, it’s broken but that’s the fun. MX9 is already a fantastic weapon if you are already done with building its most optimal loadout but now, with a careful selection of perks and types of equipment? You will experience something amazing in your next PvP match.
Let us start with the base perks. These perks are passive abilities and they do not require any activation or some kind of trigger. You will benefit from them for the entire duration of the match.
One of the best combinations of two base perks you can use is battle-hardened and double-time. Double time increases your sprint duration and battle-hardened reduced the incoming damage or debuffs for throwable projectiles like flash grenades, and grenades.
For bonus perks, always go for a fast hand because of the high swap speed they provide. You can switch your weapons considerably quickly, just like Captain Price said, switching to your secondary is always faster than reloading.
And the final ultimate perk, Ghost is your top pick. You are undetected on enemy radar and UAVs so in case, you want to go the sneaky route and ambush your unprepared opponents, this perk is fantastic.
For basic equipment, it’s all upto your playstyle and how you engage someone in a gunfight. Frag grenades and flashbangs will not be useless in any combat scenarios as they provide you additional assistance and lethality during firefights. I suggest you try using these with MX9.

Just play and have fun, while you gather XP. MX9 belongs to the AUG family so you have to reach level 40 to unlock this weapon archetype.

Farm kills in PVP matches for XP or you can use XP boosters that grant additional bonus experience points. The same goes for weapon attachments, once you unlock a weapon you have to use it in its bare form, and as you play further, you upgrade your weapon attachments.
The most boring part is, that the best attachments take the longest to unlock. So have fun playing while you are grinding for the best upgrades.
