Best AMR9 Loadout in Modern Warfare 3 Pre-Season

In Modern Warfare 3, the AMR9 is a fully automatic SMG with a 9mm chamber. Based on our experience during the beta and on the first days of multiplayer, the gun currently stands out as by far the best weapon for those who like to turn up the heat and bring the battle up close and personal. The SMG excels at close to mid-range combat, allowing you to quickly adapt to the situation while closing in on the enemies. It is characterized by excellent manoeuvrability, mobility and solid damage output. And the best thing? Based on your preferences, you can use it both offensively and defensively. Hence, no matter if you’re holding your ground or rushing in, there is a build for you. Check out the best AMR9 attachments based on your preferred playstyle in MW3 pre-season:

Best Offensive AMR9 Loadout

  • Underbarrel: XTEN TX-12 Handstop

The Best MW3 AMR9 Class Setup – Lethal, Tactical, Gear, Perks

  • Vest: Engineer Vest
  • Secondary: Renetti
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions Box
  • Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Tactical Pads
  • Gear: Bone Conduction Headset
  • Gear: EOD Padding

Engineer Vest is essential as it allows you to be prepared for any explosives, which is a must for close-quarters combat. Quick-Grip Gloves are simply all-around great gloves, which are even better with this close-range build, where every second can mean the difference between life and death. Tactical Pads is my personal pick, as I tend to slide a lot. If that’s not something you do, you can swap them for something that better suits your needs. Bone Conduction Headset will give you that crucial information to be the first one to react. Finally, we chose EOD Padding for safety reasons.
