The AMR9 tends to struggle with recoil control, especially at longer ranges, so that’s the main area I’ll be focusing on with my loadout. First, the Purifier Muzzle Brake S is in place to reduce horizontal recoil, making the AMR9 bounce less from side to side when you’re shooting. Next, the Sakin ZX Grip and XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop are equipped to further reduce recoil, with the handstop also adding a little mobility.

Moving on, the Wolfhound Carbine Stock increases gun kick control as well as recoil control. The AMR9 Enforcer Long Barrel also boosts recoil control but it primarily improves bullet velocity and damage range.
