The best MTZ-556 loadout in Modern Warfare 3 beta

A strong contender in the AR class

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 beta has been dominated by two weapons: the MCW assault rifle and the Striker submachine gun. These guns are modeled after the ACR and the UMP-45, which made them popular to begin with, but it also helps both are incredibly strong. However, this doesn’t mean other guns, like the MTZ-556, don’t also have a place in Modern Warfare 3.

The MTZ-556 doesn’t appear to be a direct replica of any previous guns in Call of Duty, as far as I can tell. It’s a standard assault rifle that shoots fairly fast and has a strong damage range. Where it slightly falters is in its recoil control, which you will want to mitigate by using the MTZ’s best set of attachments in multiplayer.

To see the strongest loadout for the MTZ-556 in Modern Warfare 3, check out the guide below.

Best MTZ-556 loadout in the Modern Warfare 3 beta

  • Barrel: MTZ Drifter Barrel
  • Optic: MK.23 Reflector
  • Stock: RB Crotalus Assault Stock
  • Underbarrel: Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip
  • Rear Grip: Bruen TR-24 Assault Grip

The overall goal of this loadout for the MTZ-556 is to increase its recoil control while not totally tanking its mobility. The MTZ Drifter Barrel slightly increases mobility while the rest of the loadout is focused on improving accuracy. The Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip is especially important when it comes to reducing horizontal recoil.

The optic I have gone with is the MK.23 Reflector, which is more commonly referred to as the ELO Sight. This gives you a classic red dot and a clear picture, but you can swap it out with something else if you don’t prefer the look.

The MTZ-556 might not be as strong as the MCW, but it can certainly hold its own in the Modern Warfare 3 beta.
