There are plenty of strong light machine guns in Call of Duty MW3, but the Bruen MK9 is one of the more underrated weapons in the class. The classic LMG can deal a ton of damage, has no glaring weakness, and has helped me go on quite a few long killstreaks in multiplayer. However, to get the most out of the Bruen MK9 in MW3, you need its best overall loadout.

To see the best loadout for the Bruen MK9 in MW3, keep reading my guide below.

Best Bruen MK9 loadout in MW3

  • Muzzle: Shadowstrike Suppressor
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: STIP-40 Grip

Since the Bruen MK9 doesn’t have the strongest mobility, this loadout aims to improve that area while not hampering its other stats. This starts with the Shadowstrike Suppressor, which has no negatives and keeps you off of the radar when firing. Next, the DR-6 Handstop improves all areas of mobility and doesn’t reduce your recoil control while the 60 Round Mag greatly boosts mobility.

The STIP-40 Grip increases recoil control and doesn’t negate any of the added mobility from the DR-6 Handstop or 60 Round Mag. Finally, I have the Slate Reflector equipped as my optic of choice, but you are free to use any other sight you feel more comfortable with.
