Modern Warfare 2: How To Get The Best Optic In The Game

To become a formidable threat in "Call of Duty" multiplayer, practice plays an undeniable part. The series is known for its frantic pace and for players' need to rely on both instinct and reaction time to outdo their opponents. In "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," all of these prerequisites are still in play, but players can get an extra performance boost by equipping user-friendly loadouts and the attachments to go with them.

In "Modern Warfare 2," some loadouts seem all-around better than others. For example, an M16 loadout, complete with specific attachments and perks, appears to be one of the most effective in the game. Yes, players will individually tailor many loadouts towards specific playstyles or roles within their squad. However, there seem to be some objectively stronger attachments that will aid players in extracting the most out of their in-game performance. This is especially true when it comes to optics, which must provide good visibility when aiming down a weapon's sights at an enemy. Out of all optics in the game, one seems to stand above the rest. Here's how players can unlock it and use it themselves.

Use the Expedite 12 to unlock the Cronen Mini Pro

Judging by the consensus in the game's online community, the favored optic for "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" seems to be the Cronen Mini Pro. The optic is essentially a circular red dot sight with a blue reticle instead of a red one. It provides tons of visibility and seems to have a clean layout when aiming down sights. For YouTubers like Aurvi and AscendAR, it is by far the best in the game. And unlocking it isn't that hard.

To unlock the Cronen Mini Pro, players must equip and use the Expedite 12 shotgun as their primary weapon and get the gun to the seventh level. Game modes like Team Deathmatch, Domination, or any other options with respawns should be the preferred method of quickly leveling up the Expedite 12 so players don't run out of opportunities for kills after a first death. After reaching the seventh level with the Expedite 12, players will unlock the Cronen Mini Pro and be able to equip the optic on any compatible weapon of their choosing.
