From Assault Rifles to SMGs, there’s an option that is bound to suit every playstyle. However, one of the fan-favorite features in MW3 is the return of the 16 iconic maps from the original MW2, which has prompted several fans to dust off their Sniper Rifles and quickscope like it’s 2009 again.

  1. XRK Stalker
  2. Longbow
  3. KV Inhibitor
  4. KATT-AMR

Excluding Carry Forward weapons from Modern Warfare 2, there are four Sniper Rifles in Modern Warfare 3 at the moment. Before the Season 1 update, the Longbow was the clear favorite of the bunch, but the inclusion of the XRK Stalker switched the situation, making the latter the ultimate favorite for quickscoping in MW3.

Meanwhile, the KATT-AMR is a fantastic Sniper, but its heavy nature and slow ADS speed make it a nightmare for quickscoping in MW3. The Longbow is the most lightweight Sniper in MW3, while the KV Inhibitor is somewhere in between the two launch Snipers.

Best quickscoping weapon & attachments in MW3

  • Weapon: XRK Stalker
  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor XL
  • Barrel: Fission 60 Barrel
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Stock: Helix LV Light Stock
  • Optic: SP-X 80 6.6x

For the best quickscoping class in Modern Warfare 3, we recommend starting with the XRK Stalker thanks to its impressive range and damage, alongside its similarity with MW 2019’s beloved Kar98k.

As for the attachments, we’ve gone for the Sonic Suppressor XL and Fission 60 Barrel to drastically buff the bullet velocity and range, allowing you to quickly snap onto enemies.

Next up, the FSS OLE-V Laser and Helix LV Light Stock combo will significantly improve the aiming stability, aim down sights, and sprint-to-fire speeds, ensuring you can rush around the map and land the first shots.

  • Gloves: Marksman Gloves
  • Boots: Stalker Boots
  • Gear: Bone Conduction Headset
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

When it comes to Perks and Equipment, it’s best to start with the Infantry Vest for quickscoping in MW3, as it buffs Tactical Sprint and makes you more mobile. Then, Marksman Gloves will make it easier to recover due to their flinch resistance as well as control your sniper rifle due to the reduced sway.

Next up is Stalker Boots, which increase your ADS movement speed, as well as strafing speed, making you much tougher to hit. We also recommend the Bone Conduction Headset to hear footsteps better.

The Throwing Knife is back as a piece of Lethal Equipment in MW3, which makes it one of the best options in the game as it grants an instant kill at any range. Also, Flash Grenades are great as Tactical Equipment as they can disorientate enemies while you move in for the kill.

As for Field Upgrade, Dead Silence is great for getting up close to enemies to secure quickscopes easily without the use of Covert Sneakers.
