Best Holger 556 loadout in MW3

The best AR in multiplayer?

There are six assault rifles in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but a few of them stand head and shoulders above the others. One of those top-tier rifles is the Holger 556, which has a fantastic loadout in MW3.

The Holger 556 is arguably the best weapon in all of multiplayer, featuring virtually no weaknesses and massive killing potential at any range. It’s so powerful that the professional players in the Call of Duty League banned themselves from using it in scrimmages or official matches. Luckily, we as the community are not restricted by such rules.

Below, you can see the exact loadout the pros were using that caused the Holger 556 to be banned in the CDL in MW3.

Best Holger 556 loadout in MW3

  • Muzzle: T51R Billeted Brake
  • Barrel: Chrios-6 Match
  • Stock: RB Addle Assault Stock
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: Morn-20 Grip

This loadout is all about maximizing the Holger 556’s already strong stats. Recoil control is dramatically increased with the attachment selection, as the T51R Billeted Brake, Morn-20 Grip and RB Addle Assault Stock are all about keeping accuracy high. Then, I have also improved mobility with the use of the XTEN Phantom-5 Handshop.

Finally, the Chrios-6 Match barrel slightly boosts damage range and bullet velocity to complete the loadout.

And that does it for the best all-around Holger 556 loadout in MW3. If you haven’t tried this gun out yet, I highly recommend you do so if you want to see some high-kill matches.
