Top 5 Assault Rifles And Class Setups In Call of Duty: MW3

Look at this list if you’re looking for the top 5 assault rifles and class setups in Call of Duty: MW3


Activision has recently released its newest edition to the long and historic Call of Duty series with Modern Warfare 3. The game has taken the player base by storm and has everyone talking about it. Be it about the game's numerous bugs, poorly made campaign, or rushed release, the gaming community has been thrilled about the multiplayer and in no time started grinding for the best weapons and attachments. With the movement in multiplayer significantly improved, players have been swarming the matchmaking queues to get started.

The weapons and attachments are another aspect that makes the multiplayer of MW3 so good. Due to the increase of player's health points from 100 to 150, the average time-to-kill has gone up significantly. This has players looking for strong weapons with the best load-outs to use in multiplayer.

So let's look at the best weapons based on performance and their efficiency-increasing load-outs in the current meta for CoD MW3.

Top 5 Assault Rifles and Class Setups

With a huge arsenal of weapons in the game, it's safe to say that there is something for everyone. But if the target is to win games consistently and perform at the top of the scoreboard, look no further than the weapons below and carefully craft the setups as mentioned to maximize the weapon's performance.

Keep in mind that these are the weapons that are the best in the current meta but are subject to change as Activision always adds new weapons and balances out the old ones to keep the game changing.

5. MTZ-556

The MTZ-556 is one of the first rifles you are given access to as a player and doesn’t demand a large grind to get it compared to the other weapons. It can be a very fun gun to use in many situations and come out on top of others almost every time consistently. It is very versatile and strong in all departments. One of the key features of the MTZ is the magazine size and solid rate of fire, which are great for bigger maps and game modes.

Make sure you use the following attachments:

  • ShadowStrike Suppressor
  • MTZ Drifter Heavy Long Barrel
  • MK.3 Reflector
  • 50 Round Drum Magazine
  • Bruen Heavy Support Grip

These attachments help increase the low bullet velocity and damage range of the MTZ. The Long Barrel and Support Grip almost eliminates any sort of horizontal recoil.

4. MCW

The MCW is probably one of the most reliable guns in the game right now. It has very good stats in all categories and is preferred by almost every high-level player. It is especially good at mid and close-ranged fights. The MCW is very easy to use and with the new TTK, the rate of fire will be highly effective.

Make sure you use the following attachments:

  • Komodo Heavy Muzzle
  • KR Midnight 13-Inch Barrel
  • MK.3 Reflector
  • 5.56 High-Velocity Rounds
  • RB Claw-PSL Grip

This setup will boost the bullet velocity and effective range of the gun as it is weaker in longer ranges. The Heavy Muzzle as well reduced horizontal recoil by 27% giving the user more accuracy and control.

3. DG-58

The first burst rifle on the list is going to be the DG-58. It is probably the best burst weapon compared to all the other guns in the game, even the FAMAS. It has a high rate of fire and is very mobile. You can run and move at very high speed with this weapon and even while firing you can keep that momentum flowing. The fire rate and movement combined can allow for high-kill count games and also let you reach your killstreaks faster.

Make sure you use the following attachments:

  • ShadowStrike Suppressor
  • CDG T-25 Light Barrel
  • MK.3 Reflector
  • Extended TP-9 Buttplate (recoil control+, sprint fire+)
  • XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop (strafe+)

The Light Barrel here is crucial as it improves the Movement Speed and effective damage range. It also improves bullet velocity giving you an edge in longer ranges. The TP-9 Buttplate also improves recoil and movement and the BW-4 Handstop improves the strafe movement while firing.

2. SVA 545

The SVA received a major buff in the Day-1 patch giving it a higher place on the list. Before the buff, it was still a good rifle but now it is almost the favorite of every competitive player. The damage on the weapon especially after adding the attachments is very high and results in a fast TTK. It barely has any recoil either making it very easy to use. If you burst fire the weapon then the first few bullets will be much faster and later the rounds slow down.

Make sure you use the following attachments:

  • ShadowStrike Suppressor
  • 45 Round Magazine
  • MK.3 Reflector
  • Mane V6 Stock
  • XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop

The 45-Round Mag shines in larger maps and game modes when enemies just keep coming at you every few seconds. The Stock improves the recoil making it almost non-existent and the Handstop Grip improves the movement.

1. Holger 556

This gun is so good that it is already banned in competitive play. Overall the Holger has very low recoil and is very satisfying to use. This also has one of the highest damage-per-round to the head in the game. So it is very easy to eviscerate anyone trying to take a fight with this. Basically with a headshot and 2-3 additional shots anywhere on the upper torso, the Holger will get you a kill.

Make sure you use the following attachments:

  • Chrios-6 Match Barrel
  • 5.56 High-Velocity Rounds
  • MK.3 Reflector
  • Morn-20 Grip
  • XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop

These attachments work on improving the recoil and effective damage range of the gun. The Barrel will increase the range and also increase the bullet velocity. The Handstop Grip also increases mobility. The High-Velocity Rounds also boost the Holger's bullet speed to 914 m/s, which is very high.
