LMGs are deadly at long range in Modern Warfare 3 and the DG-58 LSW is one of the strongest in its class. Here’s the best DG-58 LSW loadout in MW3, including the attachments, Perks, and Equipment needed to make the most powerful build.

Modern Warfare 3 features the biggest launch lineup of weapons in the series to date, with even more still to come. Among the 37 new guns on offer, players can choose from fast-firing SMGs, deadly Sniper Rifles, and much more.

LMGs have emerged as fan favorites in the early MW3 meta, with the Pulemyot 762 dominating lobbies. But the DG-58 LSW is another extremely effective choice for those who want a little more mobility, without sacrificing too much firepower.

Here is the best DG-58 LSW loadout in Modern Warfare 3.

Best MW3 DG-58 LSW loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Barrel: Wudi Long Barrel
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Comb: FSS Last Stand Comb
  • Ammunition: 5.8×42 High Grain Rounds

We begin our best DG-58 LSW loadout in Modern Warfare 3 with the Komodo Heavy Muzzle, for improved recoil control and bullet velocity. Next up, we’ve gone for the Wudi Long Barrel, adding extra stability during gunfights, as well as a boost to the overall damage range and bullet velocity.

Although lighter than other weapons in its class this is still an LMG, but the FSS Last Stand Comb improves the ADS and sprint-to-fire to make it feel more mobile like an Assault Rifle. For the Optic, the MK. 3 Reflector is a clean sight that’s become the meta pick early on in MW3.

Finally, the 5.8×42 High Grain Rounds ammo provides one last buff to the range and bullet velocity, making the DG-58 LSW a monster over long distances.
