BAS-B Battle Rifle in MW3Activision

Modern Warfare 3 offers plenty of brand-new weapons to try out, and the BAS-B Battle Rifle is emerging as a powerful meta choice. Here’s the best BAS-B loadout in MW3, built with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Modern Warfare is underway, featuring 37 new weapons, much to the excitement of Call of Duty fans worldwide. While Assault Rifles like the Holger 556, DG-58, and more were dominating the early game meta, Sledgehammer was quick to nerf these weapons, before Season 1‘s kick-off.

The BAS-B is a strong option for mid to long-range engagements, however, following the nerfs to popular ARs, this Battle Rifle is emerging as one of the best weapons in MW3.

So, if you’re looking to run the best BAS-B loadout in MW3, here are the optimal attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best MW3 BAS-B loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: TY-LR8
  • Barrel: Bruen Venom Long Barrel
  • Laser: SZ 1mW PEQ
  • Optic: Mk. 3 Reflector
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Tactical Vertical Grip

To build the best BAS-B loadout in Modern Warfare 3, we’ll focus on improving the accuracy for this BR, so we kick off with the TY-LR8 Muzzle which helps bring the horizontal recoil under control. Then, the Bruen Venom Long Barrel helps with bullet velocity, damage range, and accuracy, making it the perfect mid-long range choice.

The SZ 1mW PEQ Laser provides the much-needed aiming stability. Then, the Bruen Tactical Vertical Grip helps with aiming stability and kick control, making the recoil much easier to manage. Finally, the Optic choice is up to you, but the Mk. 3 Reflector is extremely clean.
