COD: MW3 – Best Rival-9 Loadouts

Alright, gearheads and trigger-happy comrades, brace yourselves for the return of the Scorpion EVO, now reincarnated as the Rival-9 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This SMG’s got a fire rate that’ll make your head spin, a decent damage output, and just enough kick to make those long-range showdowns a tad tricky. But fear not, my fellow warriors, for we’ve got a bag full of top-tier attachments to turn this beast into a precision instrument.

Accuracy Rival-9 Build

Behold, the precision dance of attachments that transforms the Rival-9 into a mid-range sharpshooter.

AttachmentPros And Cons
MK. 3 Reflector (Optic)

EXF Close Quarters Assault Stock (Stock)+Gun Kick Control, +Recoil Control, -Aim Down Sights Speed, -Sprint to Fire Speed, -Sprint Speed, -Movement Speed

Now, why this concoction, you ask? The Rival-9 may boast a snappy time-to-kill up close, but its unruly recoil can ruin a long-distance tango. This setup, my friends, aims to fix that. The Rival-C Clearshot Barrel, a barrel wizardry of sorts, extends the effective range and reigns in that unruly recoil. Attach the Rival Vice Assault Grip and the EXF Close Quarters Assault Stock, and voila! A 25% recoil reduction symphony, allowing you to dance with foes at 25-50 meters like a seasoned ballroom pro. Slap on your preferred optic for the finishing touch.

For the speed demons and strategic players out there, this loadout, sans suppressor, demands the Infantry Vest for a sprinting marathon, Marksman Gloves to withstand flinching, and Tactical Pads for that epic slide.
