FSS Hurricane in Modern Warfare 2

If you’re looking for a top SMG in the Modern Warfare 2 beta, the FSS Hurricane is the gun for you. We’ve put together the best FSS Hurricane loadout for Modern Warfare 2 to make sure you dominate those early matches.

The Modern Warfare 2 beta is most players’ first chance to go hands-on with Infinity Ward’s latest game, as they prepare for the October 28 launch. This small slice lets fans get to grips with all of the new features, from the revamped Gunsmith to a host of devasting new killstreaks.

It’s also an opportunity to test out some of Modern Warfare 2’s new weapons to get an idea of what to use once the full game drops, and the new FSS Hurricane is proving incredibly popular already.

But before you consider taking the SMG for a spin, you’ll need the best FSS Hurricane loadout for Modern Warfare 2, complete with all the attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Best Modern Warfare 2 FSS Hurricane loadout attachments

  • Receiver: FSS Hurricane
  • Muzzle: Xten Razor Comp
  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16″ Barrel
  • Stock: Demo Fade Pro Stock
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple Vert Grip

With the best FSS Hurricane loadout, this SMG can be much more than just a close-range weapon. The base version of this weapon packs a punch, but its recoil makes it tough to use if the enemies aren’t right on top of you, so our build concentrates on keeping it steady.

We start with the FSS Cannonade 16” Barrel to buff the damage range and velocity, ensuring the Hurricane can hold its own at mid-range too.

Next, we’ve gone for the Xten Razor Comp, which keeps both vertical and horizontal recoil in check to drastically improve accuracy. Pairing this with the Demo Fade Pro Stock and Sakin ZX Grip will make landing shots easier than almost any other weapon in its class.

Last but not least is the Pineapple Vert Grip, which should completely eliminate visual recoil, so you’ll be lasering enemies with maximum precision.

Best Perks and equipment for Modern Warfare 2 FSS Hurricane

There are some solid Perk packages in Modern Warfare 2, but we recommend creating your own selection to achieve best FSS Hurricane loadout. In the Base Perk slot we’ve got Double Time and E.O.D, extending the duration of tactical sprints to help you get in the face of enemies and soak up explosive damage from rogue grenades.

Fast Hands is the best choice for a Bonus Perk. Since the Hurricane can chew through ammo quickly, boosting reload speeds lets you get back in the fight as soon as possible. Last up, Ghost is a must-have Ultimate Perk, hiding you from radars so you can push the other team undetected.

When it comes to Equipment, Flash Grenades are ideal for getting the drop on unsuspecting enemies, while Semtex can be effective on objective-based modes like Domination for clearing flags quickly.

  1. Use the M4 until it reaches level 13.
  2. This unlocks the FTAC Recon, equip this to your loadout.

Alternatives to the FFS Hurricane in Modern Warfare 2

If the FSS Hurricane isn’t working out, consider switching to the Lachman Sub, which is arguably the best close-range SMG in the game right now.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something that can still hold its own at short and mid-range, the KASTOV-74u is a solid option.
