The Longbow might not seem like it’s a great Zombies weapon on paper, but the sniper absolutely shreds through undead hordes thanks to its top loadout of attachments. If you haven’t given the Longbow a chance yet, I highly recommend you do so, as quickscoping zombies with it is some of the most fun you can have with any weapon.

To see the best loadout for the longbow in MW3 Zombies, keep reading my guide below.

Best Longbow loadout in MW3 Zombies

  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Bolt: SA-M Quickbolt
  • Rear Grip: Nought-Z3 Grip

The name of the game with this loadout is mobility. Nearly every attachment is focused on some form of mobility, as this helps massively with killing zombies quicker. Speaking of quicker, the one non-mobility attachment on the loadout is the SA-M Quickbolt, which boosts your fire rate so you can get shots off faster. As for mobility, I have the FSS OLE-V Laser, No Stock, and Nought-Z3 Grip all equipped. These attachments improve aim down sights speed, sprint-to-fire time, and movement speed.

The final attachment is the Slate Reflector optic, which I think is a better alternative than the default scope. You are free to mix and match with the optic slot, though, as everyone will have different preferences.

Best Class Setup for the Longbow in MW3 Zombies

To put a bow on your loadout, I have some recommendations for the best second weapon slot, equipment, and Field Upgrade you should use with the Longbow.

Weapon Slot 2

  • A close-range weapon (WSP Swarm, TYR, Haymaker, etc.)


  • Lethal: Molotov
  • Tactical: Experimental Gas/Cymbal Monkey/LT53 Kazimir

Field Upgrade

  • Frenzied Guard

And that does it for the best loadout for the Longbow in MW3 Zombies. You will be surprised at just how strong and enjoyable this sniper is, especially against lower-level zombies.
