Best SVA 545 loadout in MW3

A reincarnation of the AN-94

The SVA 545 is the first assault rifle you unlock in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but this certainly doesn’t mean it should be the AR you stick with for multiplayer. While the SVA 545 does have its positive traits, you need a solid loadout for it to be worth using in MW3.

If you recognize the SVA 545, then you likely either played Black Ops 2 or Black Ops 3. The rifle is a version of the AN-94/KN-44 from those games, and it actually performs roughly the same. It even has the quick-burst feature, which lets you deal more damage with the first two bullets every time you fire the weapon. As such, the SVA 545 has massive killing potential in MW3, but only if you hit your shots and use the strongest set of attachments for the AR.

To see the best loadout for the SVA 545 in MW3, check out the guide below.

  • Barrel: STV Precision Barrel
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: Mane V6 Stock
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: Demo 650 Grip

The point of this loadout is to increase the SVA 545’s recoil control and damage range, as those are the two areas it needs the most help. The SVT Precision Barrel helps with bullet velocity and damage range while the Mane V6 Stock and Demo 650 Grip take care of any recoil control concerns.

Finally, the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop provides some mobility for the SVA 545 in case you need to snap onto an enemy in close range. I have also equipped the MK. 3 Reflector optic, but you can use another red dot sight or even the iron sights if you feel more comfortable with those. If you use the iron sights, you can use your freed-up attachment slot on a muzzle or ammunition.

And that does it for the best SVA 545 loadout in MW3. You won’t be able to get the same power as you would from using something like the Holger 556, but the SVA 545 is a fun gun to use in multiplayer, especially if you take advantage of the quick-burst feature.
