The best P890 loadout for MW2 multiplayer

#Guides

If you’re searching for the best P890 loadout in MW2, look no further. It will deliver quite the finishing blow.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has a weapon for just about everybody. If you're a long-range fanatic, you'll find several snipers and marksman rifles to suit your needs. Maybe you enjoy tighter combat. Then there are a plethora of shotguns at your disposal. And perhaps you have a mixed playstyle that sees you often switch to your sidearm to finish off those pesky enemies trying to escape. If that's the case, then the P890 is the pistol for you. The best loadout for the P890 in MW2 makes it a devastating two-shot kill if you land them to the upperbody, along with great handling so you won't get caught off guard while rounding a corner.

How to unlock the P890 and its attachments

With any weapon loadout, you'll have to gain access to the weapon first. Thankfully, the P890 pistol is available from the start. It stands alone in the BRUEN 890 Weapon Platform. You can use it immediately when you purchase MW2 and dive into its multiplayer modes. Be sure you do that, because you'll need to level it up to unlock its attachment slots.
When the P890 reaches level 11, all of its attachment slots are open for use. To get to that level, you simply need to gain XP with the weapon. A Double Weapon XP token will make it faster or you can rack up kills in modes like Invasion or Ground War if you don't have one. That should raise its level very quickly.

After you have unlocked all of the attachment slots and have the appropriate attachments available, you can put together the following loadout:
  • Barrel: Matuzek Cottonmouth Barrel
  • Laser: FJX DIOD-70
  • Trigger Action: BRUEN MG80 Trigger
  • Rear Grip: FJX DVF60 Grip
  • Ammunition: .45 Auto Hollowpoint
The attachments make for the best P890 loadout in MW2 as it receives buffs to several of its attributes. The pistol is upgraded in its damage, fire rate, range, accuracy, and handling. Recoil control and mobility see slight reductions, but this is a close-range weapon. You should have no problem adjusting for those negatives in situations where pulling out the P890 is necessary.
