Despite being a MW2 weapon, the Lockwood MK2 Marksman Rifle has emerged as a very strong option in MW3 multiplayer. Here’s the best Lockwood MK2 loadout for MW3, including all the attachments and Perks.

MW3 multiplayer has a ton of weapons to use, including powerful MW2 weapons. Among them is the Lockwood MK2 Marksman Rifle, which has become an incredibly popular pick in Season 3 competing with several MW3 weapons.

We’ve put together the best Lockwood MK2 loadout to use in Modern Warfare 3 and MW2, along with the ideal attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Best MW3 Lockwood MK2 loadout attachments

  • Barrel: 25″ Buffalo Barrel
  • Optic: Slimline Pro
  • Comb: Lockwood Merciless
  • Muzzle: Nilsound 90
  • Lever: Longhorn Lever

To begin the best Lockwood MK2 loadout in MW3 and MW2, we’ve picked the 25″ Buffalo Barrel which I found drastically improves the gun’s movement speed and bullet velocity to make it feel much snappier on close-quarters maps.

This pairs nicely with the Nilsound 90 Muzzle and Lockwood Merciless Comb, to further buff the bullet velocity as well as sprint-to-fire and ADS speed. This makes the Lockwood MK2 incredibly mobile, making sure you get your shots in before the enemy can react.

Then, I opted for the Slimline Pro Optic to easily target enemies at a variety of ranges, paired with the Longhorn Lever, making rechambering between each shot quicker.

Best MW3 Lockwood MK2 loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Vest: Engineer
  • Gloves: Marksman
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Gear: Ghost T/V Camo
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

As for the best MW3 Lockwood MK2 loadout Perks, we’ve chosen the Engineer Vest, which will allow you to easily spot the enemy Equipment, Field Upgrades, and Killstreaks, and provide a faster Field Upgrade recharge time.

Then, the Marksman Gloves are essential for the Lockwood MK2, allowing for reduced sway and flinch while aiming down sights. We’ll combine this with the Stalker Boots to boost strafe and ADS movement speed.

The Engineer Vest will grant you two pieces of Gear, so I picked the EOD Padding which is great for preventing explosive damage, and the Ghost T/V Camo which protects against enemy UAVs, allowing you to sneak up on opponents.

As for Equipment, we’ve selected the classic Stun Grenade to concuss enemies and attack them while they’re off guard. Keep in mind that the Engineer Vest replaces your Lethal Equipment with two Tacticals, so you’ll have two of these grenades to use.

Lastly, the Trophy System will improve your exposure to enemy explosives while trying to pick enemies from afar.
