Call of Duty Modern Warfare: The top 5 hidden gem weapons (PS4, Xbox One & PC)

Call of Duty players have always had their favourite weapons; for this year in Modern Warfare, the guns that come to mind are the M4A1, MP5, AX-50 and the 725 Shotgun.

However, this is only four out of 40 weapons. RealSport is here to uncover the secret beasts and hidden gems that players should seriously consider using in this year's Call of Duty Modern Warfare.

Jump To

FAL (Assault Rifle)

Ahh, the infamous FAL makes its return to yet another Call of Duty. Although you don't see it on the map as often as you should. It seems that CoD fans are sleeping on this version, which should not be the case.

The FAL is a semi-automatic battle rifle with a high rate of fire for faster follow up shots.

If equipped with the right attachments and used by a player who has a good trigger finger, then you can quickly rack up killstreaks.

BURST: A quick-fire dream


  • Barrel - XRK Marksman
  • Stock - FORGE TAC Stalker
  • Underbarrel - Operator Foregrip
  • Rear Grip - Stippled Grip Tape
  • Perk - Burst

Having these attachments equipped will allow the FAL to be accurate and powerful over long range.

With the Burst Perk equipped, this will change it from a semi-automatic to a burst, allowing for those who are not quick on the trigger to feel the power.

Kar98k (Marksman Rifle)

Thats right, the Kar. When the right attachments are unlocked and utilised, this gun changes from okay to amazing.

The Kaar98k however, does take skill to be successful with and earn kills. The Kar is a Bolt action rifle chambered in 7.92 Mauser. It's a WW2 relic that is extremely lethal in the hands of a rebel marksman.

These attachments turn the weapons into one of the best Snipers in the game and become a dream for quickscopers:

MARKSMAN: This requires pinpoint accuracy

  • Barrel - Singuard Custom 25.1"
  • Optic - Sniper Scope
  • Stock - FTAC Sport Comb
  • Rear Grip - Stippled Grip Tape

These attachments increase damage, aim down sight speed and accuracy. The fifth attachment slot can be filled with whatever floats your boat.

RPG-7 (Launcher)

BOOM: It's never fun to run into an RPG


The Launchers in Call of Duty Modern Warfare are very rarely used and are not only extremely fun, but very useful in a handful of situations.

Whether this is clearing out a Hardpoint or clearing a flag in Ground War, the RPG-7 is the weapon that can be used to do this with ease. Oh and not to forget its a bunch of fun to use!

With the RPG being a secondary weapon this gives you the option to use a primary to help in all situations where the Launcher cannot.

P90 (SMG)

The P90 is an automatic bullpup submachine gun with a unique top mounted magazine, which holds ample high velocity 5.7 x 28mm ammunition.

This weapon should be used far more than it is on Call of Duty Modern Warfare as it is a beast.

With high ammo capacity, fire rate and incredible accuracy for an SMG, this gun is a melt machine. Using these attachments will only amplify this:

RAPID FIRE: The P90 has been effective for a long time

  • Muzzle - Monolithic Suppressor
  • Stock - Fly Strap
  • Underbarrel - Rubberized Grip Tape
  • Rear Grip - Stippled Grip Tape

Once again the fifth attachment is entirely your choice, but we here at RealSport would suggest a perk of some sort would be your best bet.

M19 (Handgun)

The M19 is most definitely an undiscovered gem in the Handgun class. Why? This is most people when they think Handgun automatically think .50 GS (Deagle).

But when the M19 is compared to its competitors it will outperform most of them.

The semi-automatic 9mm pistol has excellent stability with a rapid cycle rate allowing those with a strong trigger finger to fire lots of bullets in a short amount of time - securing those kills that your primary couldn't.

These are the attachments we suggest using:
