However, there's still plenty to recommend this gun, particularly if you're in the market for something that's good over long distances but more lightweight than a sniper rifle.

Read on for everything you need to know to unlock the LM-S marksman rifle, including details of how it interacts with MW2's new weapon platform system.

How to unlock the LM-S in Modern Warfare 2

The LM-S is part of the Lachmann & Meer weapon platform in Modern Warfare 2. In order to unlock the LM-S, you need to complete the following steps:

  1. Level up your profile to Rank 16 to unlock the Lachmann-762, the base gun on the Lachmann & Meer weapon platform.
  2. Progress the Lachmann-762 to Level 16 to unlock the LM-S.

To level up a weapon, you need to use it often in multiplayer matches in order to gain proficiency in it. See our guide to levelling up fast in Modern Warfare 2 for tips on how to advance through the ranks quickly. Once you've unlocked it, be sure to check out our guide to the best LM-S loadout.

The LM-S sits at the end of its branch of the Lachmann & Meer weapon tree. But f you're so inclined, you can double back on yourself to unlock weapons on several other branches, such as the Rapp H.

For more guns on the Lachman & Meer platform in Modern Warfare 2, be sure to take a look at our unlock guides covering the Lachmann-556 and Lachmann Sub (a.k.a. MP5).
