For the best Chimera loadout, you equip the VLK LZR 7mW laser, Bruen Flash Grip rear grip, and Ravage-8 stock. These will boost the ADS and sprint-to-fire speed, heavily enhancing the gun’s agility for a more responsive feel during close-range encounters.

The FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel enhances recoil stability and increases hipfire accuracy, allowing you to precisely hit your targets whether you’re aiming or not.

Best weapons to pair with the Chimera in MW2

Lockwood MK2 

This Single-shot Marksman Rifle compliments the Chimera’s aggressive AR style perfectly, allowing you to line up headshots and pick off distant foes with the Lockwood rather than committing to moving to their position to take them out. 

Basilisk Handgun

Without the aid of the Overkill perk, the Basilisk is a formidable sidearm choice that can be swapped in for the Chimera in a pinch. The Basilisk can finish off foes already damaged with the Chimera but can deal enough damage on its own merits as a full replacement if ammo is scarce.
