The six submachine guns currently available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer are not the strongest, to say the least. While most of them are extremely weak, there are a couple, including the Striker-9, that have a decent loadout in MW3.
The Striker-9 is the 9mm version of the regular Striker, which is perhaps the worst SMG to use in multiplayer. However, the Striker-9 is much stronger, featuring terrific handling, recoil control, and fire rate. If you want to truly take the Striker-9 and turn it into a meta choice, though, you need its absolute strongest set of attachments.
To see the best loadout for the Striker-9 in MW3, check out the guide below.
Best Striker-9 loadout in MW3
- Muzzle: Purifier Muzzle Brake S
- Barrel: Striker Elite Long Barrel
- Stock: Striker Factory Stock
- Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
- Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
This loadout for the Striker-9 is all about ensuring you have high recoil control while maintaining strong mobility. The Purifier Muzzle Brake S, Striker Factory Stock, and Sakin ZX Grip all ensure your recoil will be minimal at best while the Striker Elite Long Barrel helps out with bullet velocity and damage range as well as accuracy.
Finally, the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop adds some mobility so you can still use the Striker-9 effectively in close-range gunfights. You’ll find this loadout has very little recoil, amazing sprint-to-fire time, and can kill enemies with four-five bullets at most ranges.
