Best Striker Loadout and Class Setup in Modern Warfare 3

The Striker is an unbelievable SMG. Here’s how to make it even better

The Striker is an extremely powerful SMG in Modern Warfare 3. With the right attachments, you can turn it into the best SMG in the game. Having an edge in close-quarters combat is essential in MW3, but the Striker is also capable at medium to long ranges, even putting up a fight against some ARs.

The Striker can easily take down enemies at close ranges with its high damage and easy to control recoil, making it the best pick from all the SMGs available in Modern Warfare 3. However, with so many attachments to choose from in Modern Warfare 3, it can be confusing when it comes to creating the best loadout. So we’ve got you covered with the best loadout and class setup for the Striker.

Best Striker Loadout in MW3

Striker MW3

Striker MW3

  • Barrel: Recon Long Barrel
  • Muzzle: XTEN Razor Comp
  • Underbarrel: SL Skeletal Vertical
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip

This Striker loadout starts off with the Recon Long Barrel which improves the weapons bullet velocity and damage range, making it rival some ARs in medium-range gunfights. However, this has a minor trade-off in movement speed, something you gain back with the No Stock attachment. The SL Skeletal Vertical underbarrel is excellent as it improves your recoil making it much easier to control, and the Sakin ZX Grip adds a little boost to movement speed and ADS Speed.

This combination of attachments makes the Striker the best SMG in Modern Warfare 3, allowing you to perform at all ranges and rack up an unbelievable number of kills.

Best Perks & Equipment

  • Vest: Infantry
  • Gloves: Commando
  • Gear: Ghost T/V Camo
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: A.C.S

These perks and equipment are the best in Modern Warfare 3 as they increase your movement and speed, complementing the Striker perfectly. The Infantry vest is a must as it boosts your Tac Sprint duration and decreases the cooldown. Next, the Commando Gloves allow you to reload while sprinting, ensuring that you can truly be a run-and-gun SMG player. The Covert Sneakers and Ghost T/V Camo go hand in hand, allowing you to stay off radars and also making your footsteps much quieter.

The A.C.S Field Upgrade is extremely underrated, and it also helps with ranking up fast in Modern Warfare 3. This Field Upgrade allows you to capture points and objectives by placing down this device, which then gives you the freedom to roam and get more kills.

The Lethal and Tactical are completely up to personal preference, but we like the Semtex and Stun Grenade. While Battle Rage is a great alternative to the Stun, it seems to have been nerfed from the beta and therefore we’re opting for a more support based Tactical.

The Striker is extremely easy to unlock in Modern Warfare 3 as it is one of the first weapons you get at Level 4. This is also the same level that you unlock the ability to create a class, so it should be the first class you make.
