The best setup for the M16: The Modern Warfare 2 beta enters its second week. On the second weekend, players on PC and Xbox can finally throw themselves into the new shooter. First, you need early access. Here we explain how to get early access codes for the “Modern Warfare 2” beta for PC and Xbox. In order to really get going, we recommend the M16 with the following setup:

  • Mouth: Forge-TAC Castle Comp (4th estuary)
  • Shaft: Demo Fade Pro Stock (2nd Shaft)
  • underflow: VX Pineapple Vert Grip (3rd underrun)
  • visor: SZ Mini / Cronen Mini Red Dot (1st and 2nd visor)

How to unlock the M16: To unlock the M16 in Modern Warfare 2, you must level the 556 Icarus LMG to level 12. You unlock the light machine gun when you get the M4 to level 18. We have a good setup for the M4 for you here: Best Weapons in the Modern Warfare 2 Beta

How to play the M16: The M16 excels in mid-range combat. With the setup we’ve listed here, you’ll be able to kill your opponents with just one burst. But you have to do without a fast ADS time (Aim Downsight). So you can’t run berserk through the Modern Warfare 2 beta and smash everything in your path. Proceed with more caution and avoid fighting in tight spaces if possible. Here you are clearly at a disadvantage against the MP5 in the “Modern Warfare 2” beta.
