The WSP Stinger is the lone fully automatic secondary weapon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, if you count only new weapons. While you might be tempted to try the WSP Stinger out in MW3, you likely won’t be able to succeed with it unless you’re using its best loadout.

Compared to other secondaries, the WSP Stinger is tough to use, primarily due to its high recoil control. If you want any chance of killing enemies with the pistol, you need a few specific attachments equipped.

To see the best loadout for the WSP Stinger in MW3, keep reading my guide below.

Best WSP Stinger loadout in MW3

  • Muzzle: T51R Billeted Brake
  • Barrel: HISS Short Light Barrel
  • Stock: WSP Rampart-IV Stock
  • Magazine: 32 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Marauder Grip

This loadout for the WSP Stinger is all about trying to bring down its high recoil. By default, the Stinger kicks straight up when you fire it without any attachments equipped. The T51R Billeted Brake is the best muzzle to reduce vertical recoil while the HISS Short Light Barrel provides some extra damage range so you can kill a little faster with the Stinger.

The WSP Rampart-IV Stock further brings down recoil while the Marauder Grip improves overall accuracy, making the Stinger shoot as straight as possible. Finally, I have the 32 Round Mag equipped, as the Stinger’s fire rate is so high you run out of bullets too quickly with other magazines.

I decided not to use the Akimbo attachment for the Stinger, but you can opt to use that if you want to keep your gunfights extra close-range. Otherwise, my loadout is the most optimal for all forms of gunfights.
