The best MW2 PDSW 528 loadout is a rapid-firing, close-quarters menace. Provided your aim is even half-decent, you’ll be quickly decimating foes. The classic P90 SMG is known as the PDSW 528 in Modern Warfare 2, so don’t overlook the bullpup submachine gun while looking for your next favourite weapon.
Even when you think you have found your new battle companion in the FPS game, you need to make sure it’s set up correctly, with the new Gunsmith system changing the way you unlock some attachments. On base stats alone, you might think the PDSW 528 doesn’t stack up against some of the best MW2 SMG, but add the following upgrades, and your opponents won’t be able to get out of the way fast enough.
Best MW2 PDSW 528 attachments
The best MW2 PDSW 528 loadout is:
- Muzzle: AVR-T90 Comp
- Barrel: 17″ Corvus Prorange
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Rail: Integrated Reflex Rail
- Laser: Stovl Tac Laser
The PDSW 528 is a strong bullpup SMG with a fast fire rate, but you cannot add a mag to this style of SMG, with the attachment replaced by a rail option instead. Thankfully it comes with 50 rounds by default, which should be enough to take down at least two enemies in one clip. We’ve picked attachments that aim to improve the PDSW’s handling, accuracy, and recoil control.
With this in mind, we’ve started with the AVR-T90 Comp muzzle, which significantly increases horizontal and vertical recoil control with little compromise. This muzzle takes a while to unlock in the Gunsmith, though, requiring level four with the Vaznev-9K, which is quite far into the Kastovia platform. In the meantime, the FTAC Castle Comp is an acceptable alternative, available reasonably early in the M4 weapon platform upon raising the Icarus 556 to level ten.
The 17″ Corvus Prorange barrel improves damage, range, and accuracy, with only a slight hit to handling. Then you can add the FTAC Ripper underbarrel to take those accuracy upgrades even further. Add the Stovl Tac Laser to aid hip fire accuracy and recoil control slightly. Don’t add an optic to this weapon. Instead, we’re going to finish this loadout with the Integrated Reflex rail, which blocks optics but comes with its built-in.
With this optimised build, we’ve transformed the fast PDSW 528 into an incredibly accurate machine. Now that this loadout is ready to go, you can look at some of the other best MW2 guns to decide which you’d like to add as your second weapon in the multiplayer game. And don’t forget to set up the best MW2 loadout with the right perks, even making that weapon a second primary with the popular Overkill perk.
