Best MCW Loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone

The ACR is back to claim the throne.

The old ACR is back in action and what a splash it has made. From the first few weeks of the Beta to through the entire preseason, into Season 1, and even into the start of Season 2 the MCW has dominated. So we’re taking a look at its best loadout for your viewing pleasure.

Best MCW Attachments

In Warzone the MCW has a diminished popularity compared to MW3 since its damage fall-off range is shorter than most other ARs. Its accuracy and mobility allow it to keep pace with some of the best weapons but players will notice the slightly less damage per shot over long distances.

With some choice attachments, we can shore up that weakness by giving the MCW the best damage range improvements that the gunsmith has to offer.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: KR Midnight 13″ Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Round Magazine
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x

Our muzzle is an obvious choice since the MCW already has an excellent recoil pattern it doesn’t need to rely on the JAK BFB. The VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor offers a damage range increase, velocity, and some recoil sprinkled on top.

The KR Midnight 13″ Barrel sacrifices some recoil which is already covered by our muzzle attachment in exchange for higher damage than other barrels and a small increase in mobility.

For a last increase to our stability, we have the Bruen Heavy Support Grip underbarrel which drastically helps with control so we have less chance to miss our shots.

Finally, we have the 40 Round Magazine which is a must-have for Warzone, and the Corio Eagleseye 2.5x as the cleanest optic.

Best MCW Perks

Our Warzone perks are a baseline for players to utilize and adapt to their playstyle, do not hesitate to switch out a perk or two for your own.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: Resolute

Picking proper perks for our Warzone loadout is essential to make this class work. Some work much better than others, especially in the current Warzone meta, so creating a solid combo isn’t that hard. Double Time and Resolute are on slots one and four. Double time gives us better tac sprint speed and refresh, while Resolute boosts our movement speed when someone is shooting at us. Combined, they provide us with much-needed mobility.

On the other hand, Battle Hardened and Tempered will help us with survivability. Tempered is locked in slot three as the best perk, so don’t change it. However, you can swap out Battle Hardened for E.O.D. if you prefer having explosives resistance.

Best MCW Attachments

The MCW has been on the top of MW3 multiplayer for so long now that it’s a given that its best build is likely to change often to compensate for the constant nerfs it receives. Despite all the hate, it still rocks a crazy good recoil pattern, high damage, and incredibly high mobility for an Assault Rifle.

Recently, the MCW took a hit from Activision that increased its ADS time and Sprint to fire speeds, so it’s natural for us to shore up those nerfs with a few choice attachments.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Barrel: Kimura Silentshot Integral Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Magazine: 40 Round Magazine
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Rear Grip: RB Rapidstrike Grip

To start us off we use the Kimura Silentshot Integral Suppressor for its ability to keep us off the minimap and the drastic increase to our ADS speeds and sprint to fire speeds at expense of some damage range. Losing a little damage is whole irrelevant since the MCW has enough stopping power to wipe teams with one magazine.

The XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop is perfect for increased mobility, ADS speeds, and a nice buff to our recoil control which will take a hit from our next attachment.

By sacrificing some recoil control and stability the RB Rapidstrike Grip vastly increases ADS speeds and Sprint to fire speeds to the point that the MCW can outperform SMGs in CQC engagements.

Our optic of choice is the Slate Reflector as a clean sight, and finally, the 40-round magazine to wipe teams without reloading.

Best MCW Perks

The MCW is already 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

We start with the Quick Grip Gloves to allow the MCW’s incredible mobility to not be a hindrance; the gloves allow you to draw your weapon as if you’re imitating Clint Eastwood. The Climbing Boots allow you to traverse vertical ground without any risk of fall damage and with incredible speed. Finally, we add the Tac Mask to reduce its effects to keep you safe from pesky flashes or stuns.

And there you have it, the best MCW loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. Also, stick with us at Twinfinite for all the latest news on Call of Duty and Warzone.
