COD: Modern Warfare 2 – The Best Combinations For M16

The variety of guns and weapons in the Call of Duty franchise has always been one of its strongest points. The action-packed series has relied heavily on its grand battle persona which has allowed the game to remain a fan favorite. With Modern Warfare 2 in Open Beta Access, there have been several guns, both old and new.

One of the all-time classics is the M16, which is a pretty nifty weapon to have during combat. Players can get the rifle from the Gunsmith, but it will only serve you the best after the perfect loadouts are set. Therefore, you will need to know about what kind of facilities to get the M16 in order for it to become an unstoppable force.

Given the fact that the M16 makes use of three-rounds burst shots, it can get a handful to manage. However, it is still a nifty option to have from a variety of distances in the game.

Therefore, you should be not be too quick to dismiss it from your selection. In that regard, it will be crucial to make use of the damage inflicted by the burst firing of the M16 which will help your cause.

Now that we are all aware of what options go together with the M16, it is time to get down into the details and see how they benefit us. 

Coming to the scope, the best one for large distances is the SZ Reflex as it betters stability. For medium distances, choose the Cronen Mini Red Dot which gives greater mobility and scoping power. Finally, the Hybrid Firepoint is as mentioned, a hybrid of the distances as it has interchangeable zooming and holo scope.

When it comes to minimizing recoil, you should go for the Forge-Tac Castle Comp that settles well with the rear holds meaning you have stability. The chances of shooting from the waist alongside controlling recoil increase if you opt for Lock Grip Precision-40 or the VX Pineapple Vert Grip.

The perks category, as the name suggests, will boost your capabilities. For example, Double Time betters your running speed, E.O.D increases protection from explosions, and Overkill allows you to bring along another primary weapon which you can interchange when in combat depending upon the situation.

However, if you choose a secondary gun option, then the likes of Expedite 12, X13 Auto, and FSS Hurricane became available for longer distances. For something shorter, go for the KASTOV-74u or the M4.

When it comes to selecting the stock, the Demo Fade Pro Stock and Ordnance Ravage-8 are made for players who are always mobile in the game. On the other hand, Corio Precio Factory is the go-to option if you want extra stability.

The final list of perks and combinations includes Battle Hardened which is a great choice against tactical combat. Scavenger makes sure your ammunition stack is constantly full. I used this with Fast Hands which decreases the time taken to reload which makes it a great combination.

Hardline is a great choice for achieving your Killstreak goals while Ghost makes you escape the eyes of the enemies. Semtex is a nice option for having many kills together at once, given that the tactical guns are necessary for stunning and shocking.  

Quick Fix restores health very fast and Spotter makes sure you are aware of where your enemy is hiding or located. However, you can even change up Spotter to High Alert, which will let you know whenever your opponents detect you. 

Thus, that is all about the combinations and load-outs you will need to have for the M16. Of course, you will have to make some hard choices given that there are a limited number of options.

Nevertheless, you can build up a number of combinations so as to choose from what works best. The game is built on how better you can maximize your abilities to take down the enemies.
