Best gun in MW3 – Your weapons list and perks setup

By Alan Ng - Nov 8, 2011

Modern Warfare 3 is finally here. We’re guessing that most of you are just spending the first few hours on the game now after picking it up at a midnight launch, but there are also a lot of you who picked up MW3 early.

If you have gone straight into multiplayer, we want to know which guns stand out from the rest at the moment, and your list of best weapons and perks for the game. As stated numerous times before, we do this with every Call of Duty game released (BOps here, MW2 here), so now it is time for fans to list their best weapons, highest kill / death ratios and strategies for Infinity Ward’s third Modern Warfare 3 game.

From our initial feedback on the game so far, it looks like the Type 95 assault rifle is proving to be a popular early choice for MW3 fans. Similar to the FAMAS, it is a three-burst rifle which has the ability to take an opponent out with just one burst. For those few who have even reached level 50 on multiplayer already, you’ll be delighted to hear that the fan-favorite ACR is once again featured in MW3. This was one of the most popular weapons in MW2, and we’re willing to bet that most of you will choose the modified ACR 6.8 rifle in MW3 as your choice for best gun at the moment.

So what about your best perks as well? It may be too early to tell since this requires a good playthrough of the game, but two possible candidates for best perks in MW3 could be the Blast Shield, which provides resistance against Flash and Concussion grenades and also Marksman, which identifies targets at long distance.

If you want to share your input on this, list your best weapons, perks and equipment below using our traditional format. I’ll put an example for you below to get you started. Is Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer the best Call of Duty game to date? We look forward to hearing your expert setups.
