Modern Warfare 3 went live on November 10 and Assault Rifles are emerging as the most dominant picks, similar to the meta in recent Call of Duty titles. Here’s the best DG-58 AR loadout in MW3, with all the attachments and more, that’ll let you finish enemies at medium to long ranges.

Modern Warfare 3 brings a ton of new content into the Call of Duty franchise, like the Armory Unlocks, Aftermarket Parts, and the iconic maps from MW2 2009. While the new features and maps are always exciting, many in the community are always looking to build the most optimal loadouts with the new weapons.

When it comes to the new guns, Assault Rifles are proving to be the go-to primaries, thanks to the versatility offered by them. The DG-58 is a burst AR and was one of the most dominant weapons right after MW3’s launch, however, the devs were quick to nerf it in the November 21 update.

Despite the nerfs, the DG-58 remains a viable option to run in Modern Warfare 3, so here’s its best loadout including all the meta attachments, Perks, and Equipment.
