Striker Build MW3 – The Striker SMG, aka the UMP-45 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, is a compact powerhouse that continues to shine even after some mid-range nerfs. If you’re a fan of the “run and gun” approach and prefer close-quarters combat, the Striker is a fantastic choice that can outshine even the best Assault Rifles in MW3. To help you dominate with this playstyle, here’s the best Striker SMG Loadout and Class Setup to run alongside in COD: MW3!

In this loadout, our main focus is on mobility and handling, while we work to minimize the SMG’s horizontal recoil. Here are my recommendations for the best attachments to boost your Striker’s performance in MW3:

Attachment ChoiceReason
Muzzle:Purifier Muzzle BrakeFor better horizontal recoil control and overall stability while firing.
Barrel:Striker Recon Long BarrelTo make the SMG a bit more versatile in those occasional medium to long-range duels. Also helps with the gun kick and firing aim stability.
Underbarrel:Chewk Angled GripFurther reduces horizontal recoil, making the recoil even more predictable.
Rear Grip:TacgripIncreases sprint-to-fire speed, making your weapon ready for action more quickly. Ideal for an aggressive playstyle.
Stock: No StockEnhances mobility and essentially makes your SMG faster and more responsive, perfect for close-quarters combat.

Note: Running these five attachments means you’ll have to rely on the gun’s iron sights since there’s no room for an optic. This shouldn’t be an issue once you get used to it, as the Striker’s iron sights are quite practical, and magnification isn’t crucial for this SMG.
