The best FSS Hurricane loadout in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 makes this SMG a standout choice for various close-range playstyles. While this is one of the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts right now, you'll need to put in some serious effort to unlock the FSS Hurricane by levelling up the M4 Assault Rifle first. We've got all the details on this versatile SMG below, including how exactly you unlock it and our picks for the best attachments to build the ultimate MW2 FSS Hurricane loadout. Get this thing in your arsenal early as it's one of the best Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 guns.

How to unlock the FSS Hurricane in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2

The FSS Hurricane is part of the broader M4 Platform, so you will need to spend some time with Assault Rifles before this SMG becomes available. To start, you'll want to equip our best M4 loadout in Modern Warfare 2 and level the AR to 20. That will then unlock the powerful but sluggish FTAC Recon, for which you'll need to level up to 16 – if you're hoarding any Modern Warfare 2 double XP tokens, now is the time to use 'em! Once you've done that, the FSS Hurricane will be available, and you should unlock all of its most vital attachments by level 12.

  • Barrel: FSS Cannonade 16"
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Rear Grip: XTEN Grip

When it comes to building the best FSS Hurricane loadout for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, you want to prioritize your ADS and Sprint-to-Fire speeds, recoil steadiness, and both the accuracy and control of your hip fire. It's that balance between aimed shots and reactive hip-firing that help define the FSS Hurricane, making it a weapon that is both capable of going against an Assault Rifle at range and lethal for taking down enemies who swing around corners at speed. 

While the best Vaznev-9K loadout in Modern Warfare 2 arguably makes for the best all-round SMG in the game right now, if you can get your FSS Hurricane together with these Gunsmith attachments, it becomes a viable alternative. It's a fast and snappy weapon that'll make short work of individual enemies; and if you want to rocket through the Modern Warfare 2 mastery camo challenges, this build is perfect for that. 

Best Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 FSS Hurricane class build

  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence 
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Base Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Base Perk 2: Scavenger
  • Bonus Perk: Hardline
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix

When I'm running the FSS Hurricane, it's usually because I want to be as sweaty as possible. Taking the Hardline Perk may seem like a bit of a waste, but reducing a Killstreak cost by one kill is great to have if you're opting to push enemies hard and make short, sharp impacts. Pair this up with Quick Fix, which begins health regen after you get a kill, and Scavenger to ensure you're still ready after your first set of kills. While you could pair the FSS Hurricane up with a fantastic Marksman Rifle, it's probably best to avoid the Overkill perk and instead pair it with our best P890 loadout in Modern Warfare 2 for a reliable sidearm.

When it comes to Warzone, an SMG might not be the best choice due to the massive variation in range seen in Al Mazrah, but that doesn't mean you can't effectively lock down buildings and other close-quarters areas with this loadout. For the Perk Package, I suggest the Specter Package for a stealthier, run-and-gun loadout. Alternatively, if you want to fill in the FSS Hurricane's range gaps with a Marksman or Sniper Rifle, you'll need the benefits of Overkill from the Weapon Specialist Package.
