Looking for the best Modern Warfare 2 Cronen Squall loadout? You’ve come to the right place. A selection of new weapons have made their way into Modern Warfare 2 Season 5, including the long distance, high damage Cronen Squall battle rifle.
If you go through our MW2 and Warzone Season 5 weapons list, you’ll see a couple of new additions. These new weapons are a breath of fresh air for the new season, giving players new weapon options to take into battle. So in this guide, let’s go over the best Modern Warfare 2 Cronen Squall loadout.
Best Cronen Squall loadouts and attachments
- Barrel: HR 6.8 Barrel
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
- Comb: SAB Comb
- Magazine: 50-Round Drum
After using this new battle rifle, and we are confident that the above loadout will keep you in the fight in even the most intense matches. To make the most of the Cronen Squall, it’s a case of balancing high damage and recoil control.
To go over the attachments, let’s start with the HR 6.8 Barrel. This helps tame some of the Cronen’s unwieldy recoil by giving you more control, while also upping damage range, hip fire accuracy, and bullet velocity to get in kills faster. Similar to the HR 6.8, the idea with the FTAC Ripper 56 is to give you better recoil stabilisation and a smoother recoil pattern.
The Sakin ZX Grip also brings more recoil control, while the SAB Comb boosts ADS and sprint to fire speed. The 50-Round Drum magazine is fairly self-explanatory, giving you more ammunition to work with and more kills between reloads.
Best Cronen Squall Class Setup
- Secondary: SMG or pistol
- Tactical: Stim
- Lethal: Semtex
- Perks: Battle Hardened and Double Time, Fast Hands, Quick Fix
- Field Upgrade: Munitions Box, Dead Silence, Trophy System
Unlocking the Cronen Squall in MW2
You will need to get 30 headshot Operator kills with battle rifles to unlock the Cronen Squall in Season 5. The Cronen Squall should features in DMZ as a lootable weapon that you can extract and add to your armoury. This has been the case for previous Battle Pass weapons, so we expect the same for the Cronen Squall in Season 5.
