Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Best Guns Pre-Season 1
As always, the best way to know if a weapon or its corresponding customization/blueprint is right for you is by taking it out for a test run and deciding for yourself. Our list serves to give you a good starting point.
Best Assault Rifle: M4
The M4 remains a tried and tested and dependable weapon in Modern Warfare 3, and our pick as the best assault rifle. When paired with the recommended Tempus Hightower 20″ barrel and Schlager PEQ Box IV laser attachments, it becomes a force to be reckoned with.
Best Battle Rifle: BAS-B
The BAS-B is an ideal weapon for medium-range combat, as it can deliver substantial firepower when equipped with the right attachments. With regards to the latter, our recommendation is to go with the Bruen Venom Long Barrel and a 30 or 45 Round Magazine for improved range and firepower.
Best Submachine Gun: Striker
The Striker is most effective in the close to medium range, where it is among the best weapons available in the game. In terms of attachments, it is recommended to use the Lachmann MK1 Light Stock and the Striker Recon Long Barrel for enhanced mobility and bullet speed/range.
Best Shotgun: Lockwood 300
The Lockwood 300 is the most powerful and effective weapons for use in the close range. To make the best of this gun, attach it with the Maelstrom Dual Trigger, allowing it to discharge both of its shells simultaneously and turning it into a one-shot weapon. There is some risk/reward involved here, but the payoff makes it worth it.
Best Light Machine Gun: Pulemyot
The Pulemyot stands out with an impressive time-to-kill, a solid fire rate, and minimal recoil, and is, therefore, a good option for the medium to long range. In terms of attachments, it is recommended to use the 762B Bullpup Conversion Kit to give it some Assault Rifle-like properties.
Best Marksman Rifle: MTZ Interceptor
The MTZ Interceptor strikes a worthwhile balance between long range potential and close range effectiveness, eliminating the need to shuffle between two different weapons. In terms of attachments, it is recommended to use the Bruen TR-24 Assault Grip, MCW Blackjack Stock, and Monolithic Suppressor to further enhance the aforementioned balance.
Best Sniper Rifle: Kv Inhibitor
The KV Inhibitor is an excellent choice for landing one-shot kills over longer distances. When equipped with attachments that enhance its bullet velocity and range, it becomes as the ideal choice for long range sniping.
