The best MW3 RAM-9 loadout will have you firing on all cylinders with one of the top SMGs in the game. Here are the best attachments, Perks, and Equipment for the RAM-9 in Modern Warfare 3 Season 3.

Modern Warfare 3 has many SMGs to choose from, and some fit the meta better than others. Following Season 3’s buffs and nerfs, the RAM-9 received a nice buff to its sprint-to-fire speed, making it even more popular.

So, here are the attachments, Perks, and Equipment to create the best RAM-9 loadout in Modern Warfare 3 Season 3.

Best MW3 RAM-9 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider
  • Underbarrel: SL Skeletal Vertical Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Retort 90 Grip Tape
  • Stock: HVS 3.4 Pad

Taming the MW3 RAM-9’s recoil and getting some firing aim stability was vital when using the weapon, so we’ve chosen the ZEHMN35 Compensated Flash Hider, which improved accuracy and allowed me to hit more shots with ease.

Then, the SL Skeletal Vertical Grip gives the SMG a boost in handling with an improvement to ADS and sprint-to-fire speeds, as well as some vertical recoil control.

To keep you stocked up on ammo in the clip, the 40 Round Mag is perfect for taking on multiple enemies in quick succession. The HVS 3.4 Pad Stock offers some much-needed gunkick and recoil control to maintain accuracy, while the Retort 90 Grip Tape provides more of the same with a boost to control.

  • Vest: Ninja Vest

As for Perks, we’ve opted for the Ninja Vest to pair with the best RAM-9 loadout in MW3. The Vest will eliminate your footstep sounds – a huge bonus that has become one of my favorites.

Next up, the Lightweight Boots will keep you nice and nimble. Then, Ghost T/V Camo is a vital Perk, as it keeps you hidden from enemy UAVs as long as you stay moving.

When it comes to Equipment, we’ve chosen the classic Frag Grenade and the Flash Grenade, a combination that’s still effective, even after all these years.
