Best Modern Warfare 2 FSS Hurricane loadout: The best FSS Hurricane class setup and attachments

Here's the best FSS Hurricane loadout in Modern Warfare 2

Looking for the best FSS Hurricane loadout in Modern Warfare 2? The FSS Hurricane is one of a whopping nine SMGs available in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and one of the very strongest in our opinion. With its high base damage and its roomy 50-round magazine, it's one of the most reliable guns for mowing down enemies at close range one after the other.

If you want to make the most out of the FSS Hurricane, you've come to the right place. Below we'll walk you through the exact attachments you need to craft the very best FSS Hurricane loadout in Modern Warfare 2 in the Gunsmith. We'll also give you our recommendations for the ideal secondary weapon, perks, and equipment to use alongside your FSS Hurricane.

Unsure what gun to choose in Modern Warfare 2? Confused which weapons pair best with one another? Look no further. The answers to your questions (and more) lie within the video above.

If you want a zero recoil FSS Hurricane build, you'll be pleased with the below results. With these attachments, you'll have a FSS Hurricane loadout that turns this SMG into an absolute laser, allowing you to win fights even over Assault Rifle distances with the power and consistency of this fast-firing SMG.

Here's the best FSS Hurricane loadout in Modern Warfare 2:

  • Muzzle: XTEN Black Kite
  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16"
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot

The FSS Hurricane has access to a lot of attachments relating to recoil control, but the combination I've found works the best is the big bulky XTEN Black Kite on the Muzzle, and the FSS Cannonade 16" Barrel. This ensures extremely smooth recoil and extra range, with the benefit of a silencer to boot.

We're not done yet turning the FSS Hurricane into a laser though. The FTAC Ripper 56 further stabilises the recoil, as does the Sakin ZX Grip. You might consider this overkill, but try it out. You'll fall in love with the smoothness.

Finally, add your choice of close-range Optic. Here we've opted for the Cronon Mini Red Dot sight, which gives us a very clear visual for mid-range engagements as well as close quarters combat.

Best secondary weapon

The FTAC Recon is an ideal weapon to pair with the FSS Hurricane. Despite its amazing accuracy the FSS Hurricane's damage still falls off at mid-range; but the FTAC Recon is a powerful semi-auto Battle Rifle that can delete enemies at mid or long range with ease. It also packs enough of a punch that you can land a shot on an approaching enemy before switching to your Hurricane to finish them off. The two guns work extremely well together.

Best perks and equipment

If you want to make the ideal class setup for the FSS Hurricane, first you'll need to equip your setup with the Overkill perk so you can carry the FTAC Recon alongside the Hurricane. After that, take the Double Time perk to give yourself the mobility you need to excel with an SMG loadout.

As for Bonus and Ultimate perks, Fast Hands is an excellent choice for any SMG-centric loadout - particularly one which requires you to switch quickly between two primary weapons. And Quick Fix is a great option for keeping you alive in the heat of back-to-back close-range encounters. Add to this a good old fashioned Frag Grenade and Flashbang for suppressing enemies and getting kills around corners, and you've got an extremely strong setup for your Hurricane.

That's a wrap on this FSS Hurricane loadout guide, but that's not all we have to offer when it comes to Modern Warfare 2's guns.
