Best Striker Loadout in MW3 Pre-Season

Described as “hard-hitting and controllable”, this SMG chambered in .45 auto is one of the best options for the MW3 launch if a lot of close-range engagements is your playstyle. With this weapon you will want to play aggressively and be one step ahead of your enemies. Hence, it is a perfect SMG for tight corridors and constrained areas. This SMG offers one of the best damage outputs in its class, while keeping the mobility of an SMG. However, the gun’s recoil is rather strong, and that’s something we want to work on. With that said, here’s what we think are the best MW3 Striker attachments for the perfect loadout in pre-season:

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip
  • Barrel: Striker Recon Long Barrel
  • Stock: Lachmann MK2 Light Stock
  • Optic: Slate Reflector

This MW3 Striker loadout enhances the Striker’s performance in terms of damage, accuracy, and recoil management. The VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor boosts the Striker’s damage range and lowers its recoil, while the Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip adds more recoil stability. The Striker Recon Long Barrel improves the Striker’s damage range and bullet speed, while the Lachmann MK2 Light Stock decreases its ADS time and sprint-to-fire time. The Slate Reflector optic is a versatile optic for the Striker, offering a clear sight of the battlefield at both short and long distances. This setup is suitable for players of all skill levels, and it can be used to excel in various game modes.

The Best Striker Class Setup in Modern Warfare 3 Pre-Season

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions Box
  • Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Stalker Boots
  • Gear: Bone Conduction Headset
  • Gear:EOD Padding

For this Striker loadout, we recommend using Frag and Flash as your tactical and lethal equipment. They are reliable and adaptable to different scenarios. Quick-Grip Gloves are the optimal choice for gloves in the current meta. They offer a significant advantage over other options. Stalker Boots enhance your mobility and agility while aiming and strafing, which is crucial for this build. EOD Padding provides some extra resistance to explosive damage. Lastly, the Bone Conduction Headset is a game-changer in terms of sound awareness. It will help you hear your enemies better and react faster.
