Attachment Advice for Multiplayer
Now that we’ve covered the fundamentals, let’s break down the different attachment categories and what you should consider when outfitting the MG 82 in Multiplayer:
Optic: The Optics here mostly fall in the 2x–4x range, so first determine where in the midrange you expect to encounter most of your fights, and don’t hesitate to change it up for different maps and situations. If you’re fighting up close, consider sticking to the iron sights and saving an attachment.
Muzzle: In large-scale fights, especially in outdoor locations, muzzle-flash concealment can save you vital seconds before the enemy spots your location. To avoid taking any penalties, we suggest the Flash Guard 5.56.
Barrel: There’s a lot of versatility here. Improve your shooting move speed for better evasion while firing or opt for a greater effective damage range if you plan on fighting from far out. Support-minded players should consider the 17.5” Cavalry Lancer for an anti-vehicle damage boost.
Body: With this weapon’s hefty ammo pool and fast fire rate, you can get in some decent hip-fire attacks using some of the attachments here. When positioned at long range, try the SOF Target Designator to spot enemies farther out.
Underbarrel: The Foregrip, Field Agent Grip, and SFOD Speedgrip are all solid choices for improved recoil control, with minimal penalties in the latter two. If the gun kicks too much for your liking, try one of these.
Magazine: Holding 100 rounds at a minimum, the MG 82 is just fine with its basic Magazine. If the slow reload times are getting to you, try the 125 Rnd Speed Mag or Vandal Speed Loader.
Handle: Speed Tape is a good first choice, helping to counter the weapon’s slow aim speed. Try the Serpent Wrap for an even bigger boost once you’ve leveled the weapon up a bit, or even the Airborne Elastic Wrap if you don’t mind the penalty to shooting move speed.
Stock: Give your Aiming Movement Speed a welcome boost with the Tactical Stock, and if you don’t mind poor hip-fire accuracy, upgrade to the SAS Combat Stock to put some real zest in your step.
