Cronen Mini Red Dot

The Cronen Mini Red Dot is a clear choice for the title of Best Optic in MW2. Right from launch, players have been enamored of its simple display and ease of visibility. Useful in most all situations, the Cronen Mini Red Dot is an incredible accuracy-boosting tool.

Cronen Mini Pro

The Cronen Mini Pro is incredibly similar to the Cronen Mini Red Dot, offering similar streamlined sights and thin sight borders. The Mini Pro features a wider frame than the red dot, but the choice of one over the other mostly comes down to preference rather than any real gap in usefulness.

SZ Holotherm

The SZ Holotherm is easily one of the best optics you can use in MW2. This orange colored optic not only provides a great view without any glint, but also allows you to toggle between activating your thermal effect. So as MW2 weapons specialist JGOD highlights in his breakdown, should you lose sight of an enemy in a smoke cloud, you can toggle your thermal view and pinpoint them in a heartbeat.

XTEN Angel-40

Despite a significantly chunkier frame than the Cronen Optics, the XTEN Angel-40 sits near the top of the pack due to its long-range utility and in-scope distance tracking.

Best Sniper Optic in MW2

Per the MW2 and Warzone 2 weapons specialist known as JGOD, the best sniper optic is that of the Raptor-FVM40. Not only is the scope really clean when aiming with it, but when holding your breath, it also places its red dot right where the bullet will land if the shot is taken.

This bullet drop indicator is massive because it essentially rules out any guessing you need to do when aiming from far out. Considering JGODs expertise on MW2 weapons, we highly recommend you trying this optic out for any of the snipers you wield.
