Best JOKR Loadout in Modern Warfare 2

The JOKR launcher is an explosively powerful subweapon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The JOKR’s barrage of missiles can be so powerful, you’ll wish its ammunition weren’t in such short supply.

Still, this rocket launcher is extremely good in its specific area, taking out vehicles and killstreaks with accuracy and ease. It’s a great alternative to the slightly less refined PILA.

The JOKR trades out the reliable, versatile backup of the X12 and X13 Auto subweapons for brief bursts of damage that can have a huge impact when used at the right time.

The JOKR’s ammo is extremely limited, with a single rocket per clip and only one rocket in reserve. While this ammunition can be restocked in a variety of ways, by default you are unable to rely on the JOKR launcher as a primary weapon. 

When wielding the JOKR, finding the right time to unleash its rocket barrage is crucial. Pick the targets that will have the most impact to bring down, whether they be killstreaks, vehicles, or a large chunk of the opposing team all bunched up together.

You’ll want the rest of your loadout to be performing at the top of its game when wielding the JOKR launcher. Overclock drastically increases how often you’ll be able to use your field upgrades. Take along an upgrade that’s complimentary to the JOKR or its primary weapon and you’ll begin to see much greater rates of success for your loadout.

Stun Grenade 

A piece of equipment that serves as a versatile option for offense or defense, blinding enemies and leaving them temporarily vulnerable. 

Throwing Knife 

An additional option for dealing lethal damage, that can function as a second subweapon of sorts, compensating for the JOKR’s low ammo count. The Throwing Knife is also considerably quieter than a barrage of rockets, allowing you to dispatch enemies quickly without giving away your position.

A long-range, brutal Battle Rifle that allows you to pick enemies off with highly accurate fire. While its efficacy may dwindle in close-up firefights, the FTAC Recon will let you control engagements from a distance. 

Lachmann Sub 

A fast, deadly option that excels in most encounters. Though slightly weaker than it was initially, the Lachmann Sub still excels as a primary weapon, and the JOKR launcher will pair well as an additional option.
