This is thanks to MW2's new weapon platform system, which some players have found a bit confusing. So read on for everything you need to know about unlocking the LA-B 330, an important step on the road to completing your ideal arsenal.

How to unlock the LA-B 330 in Modern Warfare 2

To unlock the SA-B 50, you need to complete the following steps in order:

  1. Level your profile up to Rank 7. This will unlock the SP-R 208, the base gun for the Bryson Long Rifle platform.
  2. Progress the SP-R 80 to Level 13 to unlock the SA-B 50.
  3. Rank up the SA-B 50 to Level 16 to unlock the LA-B 330.

The LA-B 330 sits halfway up the Bryson Long Rifle weapon tree, so more more information on unlocking the other guns on the platform, see our unlock guides for the SA-B 50 and the SP-X 80. The latter is the best sniper rifle in the game and is probably the reason you want to be advancing through this platform in the first place, so you might also want to check out our best SP-X 80 loadout while you're here!
