Best MTZ-556 Attachments

The MTZ-556 could have been one of the strongest ARs in the entire game, but unfortunately, it suffers from an incredibly strong recoil and reliability. Unlike a similar weapon, the BAS-B, slipping on accuracy-focused attachments helps with this weakness but unfortunately doesn’t solve the issue. But while we wait for a buff from Activision, we can help this weapon as much as possible.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: Komodo Heavy
  • Barrel: MTZ Drifter Heavy Long Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

As stated above the MTZ-556’s recoil is especially unruly so we focus our attention on addressing that issue. The first step is the Komodo Heavy muzzle to nullify some gun kick and horizontal recoil. To help with Warzone’s long sightlines we use the MTZ Drifter Heavy Long Barrel, it increases accuracy and drastically boosts our damage range. Continuing the trend of recoil control, we use Bruen Heavy Support Grip for better accuracy.

Finally, we have the Slate Reflector as our clean optic and the 50-round drum for enough ammunition for long gunfights.

Best MTZ-556 Perks

For Perks, we are going to be listing our general perk package that will help you dominate Warzone, but feel free to change any to your preferences.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Temepered
  • Perk 4: High Alert

Having Sleight of Hand has saved my life more times than I can count, it is the underdog of this package but I recommend it highly. Double Time is a must-have for all players as it allows us to sprint across Warzone’s long sightlines with ease. Tempered is a fantastic perk that restores you to full HP 33% faster than your opponents and frees up some backspace as armor plates have better mileage.

Finally, High Alert is an unsung hero in this slot, it protects you, warns you, and allows you to outplay countless opponents. I cannot stress the strength of this perk.

Best MTZ-556 Attachments

The MTZ-556 is the very first assault rifle players are presented with at level 1 and, much like the M4, it can still dominate. It has high accuracy at all ranges and a very competent TTK that will have your enemies dropping to the floor in record time.

But thanks to MW3’s Gunsmith, there is so much more we can do to make this weapon one of the greatest. You may be happy or sad about it, but Sledgehammer Games has decided to remove weapon tuning so there will no longer be any need to detail tunings on our loadouts.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: HMRES Mod Suppressor
  • Barrel: MTZ Clinch Pro Barrel
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
    • All optics are personal preference in most cases.
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Rear Grip: Bruen TR-24 Assault Grip

Our attachment list starts with the HMRES Mod Suppressor and much like all suppressors we increase our damage while keeping ourselves hidden from the mini-map. The MTZ Clinch Pro Barrel and Bruen TR-24 Assault Grip are the perfect pair of increased ADS speed and softened recoil for those longer engagements. Finally, the 50-Round Drum allows you to gun down foes without reloading, and the MK. 3 Reflector is a personal choice but can be replaced by any optic of your choice.

Best MTZ-556 Perks

Perks are not what you used to know them as. We now have different pieces of body armor that give you specific and unique bonuses that you can mix and match. The MTZ-556 is a lightweight and fast weapon, so we have chosen perks/gear that will continue highlighting that advantage.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Quick Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Climbing Boots
  • Gear: Tac Mask

Quick Grip Gloves are going to be the best gloves you can get your hands on for almost all engagements. You’ll be drawing your Assault Rifle from sprinting at blinding speeds and catching many opponents off-guard. Climbing Boots are the perfect pair for high mobility builds. Swinging around vertical engagements like Spider-Man, while negating the risk of any fall damage. Finally, the Tac Mask gives you some much-needed safety against Flashbang/Concussion equipment spam.

And there you have it, the best MTZ-556 class for Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. Be sure to check out our related Call of Duty content below for guides, news, and updates.
