Best FSS Hurricane Loadout In MW2

Hurricane mw2
Talal Musa Updated on by

With many Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) fans opting for the sturdy M4, the FSS Hurricane is easy to snub and is buried amongst the game’s default loadouts.

At first, it’ll feel like a typical MW2 SMG – a high rate of fire, varied bullet spray and limited damage at long distance. Over time though, you’ll soon pick up some of its advantages – be that its larger than normal 50-capacity magazine, or its rate of fire, which manages to be not too fast and not too slow.

The Hurricane is obviously best in close quarters and excels in confined corridors in the Museum map. This means it suits aggressive players who prefer rushing in for lethal damage, rather than those who enjoy sitting back and playing defensively. If you’re adept with the M4, then the Hurricane may be worth a try.

The Hurricane is not available right from the off in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and will require you to reach level 16 with the FTAC Recon in order to unlock it. However, once unlocked, leveling it up is pretty easy, with its stock sight providing ample of accuracy for close to mid-range encounters.


There are few areas that the Hurricane doesn’t excel in, namely longer range combat – so you’re a sitting duck if you’re caught in one of the open areas.

Make sure to hug the walls and edges of the map to avoid being caught out. Its reload time is also longer than you think, so always take cover when reloading – there is a millisecond delay once the clip is reloaded before you can fire, which can catch you out.

Modern Warfare 2 – Best FSS Hurricane Loadout

The perfect Hurricane loadout compensates for its lively recoil whilst tackling range issues

We’ve picked out the following as the best attachments to tame the FSS Hurricane SMG and create the best loadout. The focus here is isolating the gun’s two major weaknesses – control and range. By blending the right barrel with reinforced control in key areas, the Hurricane becomes a far more useful mid-range weapon, whilst not sacrificing its core CQC ability.

Equip the following attachments:

  • FSS Cannonade 16″ Barrel
  • XTEN Razor Compensator
  • 5.7X28mm Hollow Points
  • Demo Quicksilver Stock
  • XTEN Grip

FSS Cannonade 16″ BarrelRange

The FSS Cannonade 16″ Barrel will add some much-needed range to the SMG, whilst helping T-up a damage increase.

The XTEN Razor Compensator Control and Stability

The Hurricane is a lively SMG with a frantic recoil that is hard to control, especially at long range. This compensator adds much-needed recoil control, to provide more accuracy.

5.7X28mm Hollow Points – Damage

To add more stopping power and a slight damage increase, aim to upgrade standard ammunition to Hollow Points. A hollow-point bullet will expand on impact, causing a more deadly hit – so your enemies will certainly feel the difference.

The Demo Quicksilver Stock and XTEN Grip – Mobility and Control

Both of these attachments help reinforce mobility and control – and improve recoil for longer-range confrontations.
