Best KV Inhibitor loadout in MW3

A semi-automatic monster

There are three new sniper rifles in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and only one of them is a semi-automatic weapon. That would be the KV Inhibitor, which is arguably the best out of the bunch in MW3, mainly thanks to its top loadout.

The KV Inhibitor has an extremely high damage range along with a decent fire rate and mobility, making for an all-around great sniper rifle regardless of your playstyle. However, in order to get the most out of the KV Inhibitor, you need to use its strongest set of attachments for multiplayer.

To see the best loadout for the KV Inhibitor in MW3, keep reading my guide below.

My loadout for the KV Inhibitor mainly focuses on mobility with a slight boost to damage range and bullet velocity as well. The Kastovia JEK-40 Barrel, Ivanov Wood Stock, Skeletal Vertical Grip, and Broadside Factory Grip all boost mobility in one way or the other. Some of those attachments also improve recoil control, which is important for a semi-auto weapon.

Finally, I have added the .338 Magnum Spire Point ammunition, which boosts damage range and bullet velocity while only lowering bullet penetration. I opted not to replace the optic on the KV Inhibitor, as I feel its base sight is a solid enough option to keep as is. However, you can always use something else in place of another attachment if you wish. I suggest replacing the underbarrel if you decide to go that route.
