Compared to the ISO and the TAQ-56, the Kastov 762 will likely fall flat in high-stakes matches where everyone is fighting for another SR boost. That doesn’t mean you can’t use this in Ranked Play though, and with the right build, it can erase some players off the map in COD Modern Warfare 2.
What this rifle lacks in fire rate, it makes up for in raw power. You’ll notice it sits somewhere in between the two current meta assault rifles. What really holds it back is the control of the weapon, but we can fix that with our Ranked Play loadout guide for Modern Warfare 2.
COD MW2 Ranked Play – Best Kastov 762 Loadout
If you’ve seen our ISO Hemlock build, then you’ll notice that this is similar in nature. The main similarity is the lack of a barrel because we can’t afford the mobility hit on the barrel options. Otherwise, it’s a fairly standard build and you can find all of the required pieces below.
Kastov 762 Ranked Play Loadout:
- Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip
- Stock: Markeev R7 Stock
- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro or Irons
Without a barrel, we want to focus on our recoil control attachments first. The Sakin Tread-40 muzzle and the FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel are crucial to ensuring that our bullets don’t climb to the sky and that we can stay on target. For the Kastov, other grips don’t perform as well in terms of accuracy.
Next, we want the Demo-X2 Grip rear grip for an extra recoil boost without many negatives. You can add a mobility grip, but you’ll likely suffer for the choice. Instead, use the Markeev R7 Stock for tons of ADS speed and some additional sprint speed on this clunky rifle.

Our last slot for the Kastov 762 in MW2 Ranked Play is the optic. You can leave this empty if you like the iron sights, which will save you some ADS speed. Otherwise, the Cronen Mini Pro is one of the best options for an optic when you want precision and speed in COD MW2.
