Unlocking the BAS-P
Unlike many firearms in MW2, the BAS-P is not unlocked through overall progression or by leveling up a specific weapon. Instead, the BAS-P is a season pass reward for the Season 1 battle pass.
Within the battle pass, unlock four basic rewards in sector A6, at which point the BAS-P will be available to unlock.

MW2 – Best BAS-P Loadout
The BAS-P features the same weapon platform as the M13B Assault rifle, but its performance is highly distinct. Where the M13 focused on stable fire at mid-range and further, the BAS-P is an SMG that deals high damage at closer distances while retaining stealth through subsonic ammo.
The BAS-P is not an all-around damage-dealing tool, but a specialized weapon for picking off opponents quickly and quietly.
