If you do quickscope shots in Call of Duty, that means you’re a high-level skilled player in the lobby. Not camping with a sniper rifle and trusting your aim for a one-shot takedown isn’t something that every player does in the game. However, with Modern Warfare 3‘s new movement system, more players are trying to quickscope with sniper and marksman rifle loadouts and classes. Regardless, you can’t just do quickscopes with any rifle in the game, and it’s essential to know which perks and attachments you use. Here’s the best quickscope class/loadout in Modern Warfare 3 – MW3.
Best Quickscope Loadout in Modern Warfare 3
- Barrel: 22.5″ Elevate-11
- Laser: Corio Laz-44 V3
- Stock: PVZ-890 Tac Stock
- Bolt: FSS ST87 Bolt
- Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4
Unfortunately for the MW3 fans, the best sniper rifle that has the highest ADS speed is a weapon from MW2. The SP-X is the only weapon that can one-shot enemies when hit to the upper body. The Modern Warfare 3 sniper rifles are too heavy for a rushing quickscope playstyle, and other quicker marksman rifles like SA-B won’t one-shot the enemy targets.
So while the SP-X is the only option for setting the best quickscope loadout/class in Modern Warfare 3, it does need some essential attachments to be the ultimate quick SR we need. First, we need a 22.5″ Elevate-11 barrel. This add-on compacts the SP-X while giving it the least penalty on damage and bullet velocity.
The next attachments for maximizing the ADS speed are the Corio Laz-44 V3 laser and the PVZ-890 Tac Stock. These are the essentials for the best quickscoping class/loadout in Modern Warfare 3 – MW3, but with two remaining attachments in hand, we can tweak the SP-X to make it even quicker.
Use the FSS ST87 bolt attachment so that you can rechamber the bullets faster. This will give you a second chance if you miss your first shot. Then, pick the Forge Tac Delta 4 as the optic for your weapon. I have tested out many scopes on the SP-X and other sniper rifles in the game, and the Forge Tac Delta 4 seems to be the best sniper scope that you can hit quickscoping mid and close-range shots while with it.
Perks And Gear For Quickscoping Class in MW3
- Quick Gloves
- Tactical Pads
- Mag Holster
- L/R Detector
Using the CCT Comms vest, you’ll be granted access to pick one additional gear. First, you can have the Quick Gloves for a faster weapon switch. Then, you can have the Mag Holster for quick reloading action and the L/R Detector to get notifications if enemies aim at you from the rear side. The star of the perks show, however, is the Tactical Pads gear.
The key difference between MW2 and MW3 is the movement system, and with Tactical Pads gear, you can take full advantage of the new settings. You’ll slide farther, and more importantly, you are allowed to have full ADS while sliding, which is essential for sniper rifles like SP-X that don’t have the tactical stance. This will make the best quickscoping class in Modern Warfare 3 – MW3.
