Modern Warfare 3 provides players with a wide array of weapons, featuring both new additions and those carried over from MW2. Although SMGs and ARs are commonly favored in the meta, some not-so-popular weapons can become formidable contenders with the right attachments.

Given the extensive arsenal, some MW3 weapons bear a resemblance to guns from previous rebooted titles, such as the TYR and the Basilisk. Much like MW2’s revolver, the TYR in Modern Warfare 3 excels as a close-range powerhouse.

So, to get the most out of it, here’s the best TYR loadout for MW3, including all attachments, Perks, Equipment, and more.

  • Ammunition: 12.7X55M High Grain Rounds
  • Trigger Action: Ali’s Regret
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo TYR

To kick off the best TYR loadout for MW3, we picked the ZIU-16 Heavy Long Barrel in order to improve the gun’s damage range, bullet velocity, recoil control, and gun kick control. Combined with the 12.7X55M High Grain Rounds Ammunition, it further boosts both damage range and bullet velocity.

Then, the FJX DIOD-70 Laser will enhance sprint-to-fire and ADS speeds as well as aiming stability. The Ali’s Regret Trigger Action will improve the fire rate, aiming idle sway, and trigger response time, and this will help you get your shots rapidly.

Lastly, the Akimbo TYR Rear Grip is the key to this loadout. When using revolvers, having two simultaneously available provides a dual opportunity to eliminate the enemy and help out for any missed shots.
