Modern Warfare 2 Guide – Best secondary weapon in Ranked Play

You’ve likely seen numerous players using a combat knife in Search and Destroy, but it’s also required in Hardpoint and Control. The reason we use a melee weapon instead of a pistol is to increase our mobility. Whether you want quick routes in Search and Destroy or must be the first to reach the Hardpoint, the combat knife is essential.

Without it, you’ll notice that you’re slower to reach your goals, which can be disastrous. You must be able to switch quickly between a speed boost and your primary weapon. Having said that, the X12 can still be a great secondary option in some cases.

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, snipers should almost always have the X12 with a quickdraw grip as a backup weapon. You don’t need to prioritize quick routes, and the backup weapon can save your life in an emergency. However, in comparison to other weapons, the pistol has far too many disadvantages.

That brings us to the end of our guide to the best secondary weapon to use in Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play. Keep in mind that this is merely a suggestion and that the ultimate choice is yours. You are free to use either of the two methods above, depending on your preferences.
