Best MCW build in MW3


    The ACR from the original MW2 (2009) returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 as the MCW assault rifle. It’s one of the best weapons to use during the MW3 multiplayer beta thanks to its top-notch accuracy and range. Here is an MCW loadout guide with the best builds, perks, and equipment.

    Best MCW Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) Build

    • Barrel: 16.5″ MCW Cyclone Long Barrel
    • Optical: Whiteboard reflector
    • Ammunition: 5.56 high grain NATO
    • Magazine: Mag 40 round
    • Back grip: RB Rapidstrike grip

    As mentioned above, MCW has great accuracy due to its direct recoil tracing, which can be controlled very easily. Therefore, I have prioritized accessories that improve the weapon’s damage range and bullet velocity, namely Cyclone Long Barrel and High Grain ammunition. You can then attach an extended magazine to help you stay in gunfights longer, especially in the Ground War game mode.

    The MCW assault rifle’s iron sights do not provide a clear image of the target and can be obstructive, therefore I suggest using a low zoom optic such as the Slate reflector or the MK.23 reflector. Finally, you can use the RB Rapidstrike rear grip to gain some additional handling stats, i.e. ADS and sprint speeds to shoot. If you think the recoil control should be better, use the RB Talon-X3 Grip instead. You can even skip the rear grip entirely and use the VT-7 Spirit Fire Suppressor Muzzle accessory for stealth.
