Best Striker 9 loadout for Ranked Play in MW3

An underrated off-meta SMG for Ranked

The Striker 9 is not considered a meta submachine gun by many players in the Call of Duty MW3 community. However, if you’re looking for an off-meta option to use over the Rival-9 in Ranked Play, the Striker 9 has a lethal loadout.

The Striker 9 already has strong mobility right out of the gate, so this loadout aims to improve the SMG’s overall recoil control. The L4R Flash Hider starts us off with this in mind, which boosts the horizontal and vertical recoil control of the Striker 9. Then, the Lachmann Recon Series Stock also adds recoil control and gun kick control.

The next attachment, the DR-6 Handstop, adds some mobility into the mix so you can keep up with the Rival-9 at close range. For the fourth attachment slot, I have the MK. 3 Reflector optic, which might seem odd for an SMG, but it works great on the Striker 9. Finally, the Striker Elite Long Barrel rounds out the loadout, which improves bullet velocity, damage range, and accuracy.
