Best AMR9 loadout and class setup in MW3

A fast-firing SMG with great potential to become meta.

In Call of Duty MW3, the AMR9 is an SMG you can unlock and upgrade by grinding the game. I found this weapon to be exceptional at close range, but it has a few drawbacks that can be mitigated with the proper attachments.

The AMR9 is a fast-firing SMG lacking in damage, accuracy, and range. To unlock this weapon, reach level 29 by progressing through the game. Purchasing the Vault Edition instantly unlocks two blueprints for the AMR9 SMG, and you can use both after unlocking the loadout option in-game. Despite its drawbacks, you can equip certain attachments to improve this gun's all-round performance. Here are the attachments I use for the AMR9 SMG in Call of Dut MW3.

  • Barrel: AMR9 Enforcer Long Barrel
  • Muzzle: EXF Huntress 90
  • Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Ammunition: 9mm Armor Piercing

The weapon's iron sights look similar to the Fennec-45 from MW2, which is why I recommend not using an optic attachment for this gun. The circular iron sights allow you to aim precisely at opponents, so it's better to use a different attachment instead of the optic. The AMR9 has a tight hip-fire spread, making it a decent weapon for running-and-gunning opponents. I recommend selecting a Stock, Rear Grip, or Magazine setup to swap out any of the attachments mentioned above.

As for the best class setup, it depends entirely on your preference and playstyle. I like to use Smoke/Stun Grenades to enter rooms and navigate around tight corridors. Likewise, Proximity Mine, C4, and Claymore are decent for players who prefer a camping playstyle. Here is the best class setup for the AMR9 SMG:

  • Secondary WeaponFTAC Siege or DG-58 LSW
  • Vest: Infantry Vest or Engineer Vest
  • Tactical: Smoke/Stun Grenade or Battle Rage
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife, Proximity Mine or Semtex
  • Field Upgrade: Ammunition Box or Portable Radar
  • Gloves: Scavenger Gloves
  • Boots: Tactical Pads
  • Gear: Ghost T/V Camo or Blacklight Flashlight
