The Best Basilisk Loadout in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0

The Basilisk pistol is a secondary weapon and sidearm in Modern Warfare 2 that can be unlocked at level 39. It is much different than the other pistols for its high damage and great range, but has a low magazine.

“A double-action revolver firing .500 Cal rounds, the Basilisk kicks hard but hits harder,” the game’s description of the gun reads. “Unstoppable in the right hands.”

Here is how you want to build your Basilisk:

  • Ammunition: .500 Snakeshot
  • Barrel: 10.5″ FTAC Arrow
  • Laser: REVO-LSO 7MW
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo Basilisk
  • Trigger Action: Bryston HTA

The Akimbo Basilisk is important for dual wielding two of the revolvers, while the .500 Snakeshot will boost the damage for both weapons. Dual wielding does affect other stats, which is what the other attachments make up for.

The REVO-LSO 7MW laser improves hip-fire accuracy since you cannot aim down the sights while holding two weapons, the Bryston HTA increases fire rate, and the 10.5″ FTAC Arrow helps both accuracy and range to close the gap between you and the enemy.

That is the best Basilisk loadout in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0. Be sure to check our other Modern Warfare 2 loadout guides such as the MCPR-300 sniper rifle, the Lachmann-556, and the M4 assault rifle.
