EM2 Best Attachments Class Setups & Gunsmith Loadouts Cold War

This EM2 guide will take you through the best attachments and top 3 class setups for the weapon. Aswel as diving deep into the weapon stats and discussing what makes the weapon effective.

The EM2 is a fully automatic Assault Rifle that was released in Cold Wars Season 5 as part of the Battle Pass. 

The EM2 has an impressive damage range with a built-in scope for accuracy. The weapon’s strong point is its very low recoil combined with decent damage. 

Weapon background

The EM2 is the first of its kind we’ve seen in a Call of Duty title. However, the weapon is real and was used by British forces for a brief period in 1951.


  • Damage: 48
  • Rate of Fire: 535RPM
  • Recoil: Low

Looking at the stats above we can see that the EM2 assault rifle will melt people in an average of 4 shots. Landing a headshot will drop the weapon to a 3 shot. The ROF is standard here for all Cold War Assault Rifles. The Recoil is quite manageable even without a grip. However, this is subjective and every player handles recoil differently.

So without further ado let’s discuss the EM2 Best Attachments Class Setups…

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the EM2 in Cold War are the:

  • 25.8″ Task Force Barrel
  • Stanag 40 RND mags
  • Grip of the player’s choice.
  • Dropshot Wrap

The Task Force Barrel adds a tonne of effective damage range and bullet velocity. The Stanag 40 RND mags add additional ammo giving you 40 rounds per mag. Finally, a grip will help with countering recoil. Any grip should work fine. 

Best Class Setups

Class 1 – All Out Warfare

The All Out Warfare class setup is great for both stealthy and aggressive players. It is in fact setup for both playstyles.


  • Suppressor
  • 25.8” Task Force
  • Foregrip
  • Stanag 40 RND
  • Dropshot Wrap

Class Setup

This class setup is perfect for those players that love to go balls deep and stay in the action. Were using Perk Greed here to max out our perk selection. The Stimshot is a trusty tactical because it helps us get back into the action faster.

  • Secondary: Magnum
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket/ Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger/ Quartermaster
  • Perk 3: Ninja/ Spycraft 
  • Lethal: C4
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Field Mic
  • Wildcard: Perk Greed

Class 2 – EM2 Ranger

This class setup maximizes bullet velocity while preserving the weapon’s usability. Even with these attachments it still has a decent ADS time and sprint to fire speed.


  • 27.4” Ranger Barrel
  • Infiltrator Grip
  • Stanag 40 RND Mag
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock

Class Setup

The remainder of the class setup is a great class to use when playing objective-based game modes such as Domination and Hardpoint. Similar to the class above, we use Perk Greed to maximize perks. The AMP63 akimbo here is lots of fun. It’s funny hearing people rage when you melt them.

  • Secondary: AMP63 Akimbo

  • Perk 2: Scavenger/ Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja/ Ghost
