Best Longbow loadout for Ranked Play in MW3

The best quickscoping option for Ranked

The Longbow is currently not the meta sniping option for Ranked Play in Call of Duty MW3, but it’s easily the best quickscoping choice. If you want to use the Longbow in Ranked, though, you are out of luck, as the sniper is restricted in the mode. However, if you want to use the Longbow in a competitive way, I do have its best loadout for that purpose.

As you might expect, this loadout is centered around mobility to give you the best chances for quickscoping success. You want to ensure you’re aiming for the upper body of enemies, though, as you will see a ton of hitmarkers if you don’t. To help with that, however, I added the Pro-99 Long Barrel to the loadout, which boosts bullet velocity and damage range.

There’s also the SA-M Quickbolt to increase your rechambering speed, or fire rate. The rest of the attachments, the DR-6 Handstop, No Stock, and Nought-Z3 Grip, all improve your mobility stats.

Best Class Setup for the Longbow in competitive

Finally, I have all of the additional items you need for your Longbow class, which follow the Ranked Play ruleset.

  • Infantry Vest

Secondary Weapon

  • Renetti

Perks

  • Gloves – Marksman Gloves or Quick-Grip Gloves
  • Boots – Covert Sneakers
  • Gear – Tac Mask or EOD Padding

Equipment

  • Lethal – Frag Grenade or Semtex Grenade
  • Tactical – Stun Grenade or Smoke Grenade

Field Upgrade

  • Trophy System

And with that, you’re ready to start quickscoping in competitive modes in MW3. I highly recommend only using a sniper in Search and Destroy when playing competitive unless you want some angry teammates.
