The MW3 Warzone meta is brutal and requires non-standard solutions when it comes to weapon loadouts. Pro players know very well which loadouts work the best, but I’ve collected the Top 10 best loadouts pros use in CoD: Modern Warfare 3‘s Warzone mode.

What are the 10 Best Pro Loadouts for MW3 Warzone?

10. WSP Swarm SMG Close Range Loadout

  • Muzzle: L4R Flash Hider
  • Barrel: WSP Reckless-90 Long
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: FSS Fortress Heavy
  • Magazine: 100 Round Drum

This pro loadout is based on one of the lightest SMGs in MW3, which offers high mobility, great accuracy, and high damage. It works especially well due to the WSP Reckless-90 Long barrel attachment, which increases bullet velocity and the range of your weapon, which is a crucial element in Warzone engagements.

9. BAS-B Battle Rifle Long Range Loadout

  • Muzzle: Jak BFB
  • Barrel: Bruen Venom Long
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5X
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Ggrip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

On its own, BAS-B doesn’t need an optic attachment. It performs particularly well at midrange without one. But if you want to give this weapon increased accuracy at longer range, then I highly recommend the Corio Eagleseye 2.5X optic. Add the Bruen barrel and under barrel attachments for extra accuracy.

8. AMR9 SMG Sniper Support Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor S
  • Optic: Mk. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: Wolfhound Carbine
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Ammunition: 9mm High Grain Rounds

An effective team in Warzone must have a sniper for long-range engagements and a sniper supporter, who eliminates hard-to-get targets at closer range. This loadout is truly versatile, as it can function in both sustained firefights and during short encounters, where AMR9’s time-to-kill (TTK) will play a huge role.

7. MCW Assault Rifle Sniper Support Loadout

  • Muzzle: Jak BFB
  • Barrel: Second Line Mammoth Heavy
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Conversion Kit: Jak Raven Kit

This particular loadout is one of the best hybrid sets I’ve seen when it comes to combining the sheer power of the MCW asault rifle with the high mobility of the Jak Raven conversion kit, which turns your rifle into an SMG. That’s why you can freely utilize this kit for supporting your sniper, as it combines all the best elements from both of those types of weapons.

6. SVA 545 Assault Rifle Long Range Loadout

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: STV Precision
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag
  • Ammunition: 5.45 High Grain

If you’re asking yourself why anyone would use an assault rifle for long-range engagements instead of a marksman rifle or a sniper rifle, then be sure to check out this loadout. I love it. It’s designed specifically to enhance the Hyperburst perk of the SVA 545 rifle, making the first two bullets shoot simultaneously, which is a perfect scenario for long-range engagements.

5. KATT-AMR Sniper Loadout

  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor XL
  • Barrel: Zang-34
  • Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal Spire Point Rounds
  • Bolt: Ephemeral Quickbolt

I prefer a classic approach to sniping with an actual sniper rifle. The KATT-AMR sniper rifle is very powerful on its own, but it lacks the speed of fire, which is critical in Warzone mode. Fortunately, I discovered the Ephemeral Quickbolt attachment on one of the top meta players’ loadouts, significantly improving this rifle’s fire rate.

4. AMR9 SMG Close Range Loadout

  • Barrel: Tectonic Micro Integral Suppressor
  • Optic: Mk. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: Demo D50 Buffer Tube
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip

The primary goals of this pro loadout are to increase the AMR9’s magazine capacity, range, and recoil control. While the Demo D50 Buffer Tube increases mobility, the MK.3 Reflector optic improves target acquisition. The recoil is significantly improved by the Sakin ZX Grip. Last but not least, the Tectonic Micro Integral Suppressor enhances precision in close-quarters combat.

3. RAM-7 Assault Rifle Long Range Loadout

  • Muzzle: Jak BFB
  • Barrel: Cronen Headwind Long
  • Stock: HVS 3.4 Pad
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Magazine: 60 Round Drum

This pro MW3 loadout retains good mobility, but I think it’s suited mostly for long-range engagements. The Jak BFB muzzle attachment helps you stay under the radar by suppressing sound and reducing muzzle flash. More precise shots at longer ranges are now possible because of the improved bullet velocity and range of the Cronen Headwind Long barrel.

2. HRM-9 SMG Close Range Loadout

  • Muzzle: L4R Flash Hider
  • Barrel: Princeps Long
  • Stock: Folding Stock
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

I like this loadout because it increases accuracy and agility without compromising close-range efficiency too much. The L4R Flash Hider and Folding Stock modifications, which help manage gun kick and recoil, increase accuracy. The Princeps Long barrel decreases aiming idle sway and increases bullet velocity and range.

1. Pulemyot 762 LMG Long Range Loadout

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor L
  • Barrel: Jak Annihilator Long Barrel
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x
  • Stock: Command D-15 Recoil Reduction Pad
  • Conversion Kit: Jak Annihilator Bullpup Kit

The goal of this loadout is to increase both the Pulemyot 762’s mobility and long-range capabilities. The JAK Annihilator Bullpup Kit makes this weapon feel more like an assault rifle. The JAK Annihilator Long Barrel, on the other hand, makes it possible to fire precise shots across extended distances. The rest of the attachments support these priorities for the best meta loadout in Warzone right now.

That’s it for my list of the 10 best loadouts the pros are using in MW3 Warzone. Stay tuned for more CoD MW3 tips and tricks articles, including how to fix MW3 Warzone menu loop bug and how to fix MW3 Warzone fetching online profile error.
