Best Weapon Classes in Week 1 of Modern Warfare 3

November 15, 2023 6:02 PM

The meta is starting to form for competitive play, but still, different weapons and attachments are being trialed. The main SMG that is being used in the practice series right now is the Rival-9. It is very hard to run more than one SMG on certain maps but still serviceable in the right hands. The second SMG that has been used at times is the Striker 9. This weapon has been rarely used but is still seen in use by EriKBooM and Vivid at times. With more reps in respawns, it'll be interesting to watch the usage rates of both the SMGs in the meta currently.

The AR meta is far more cemented currently in Modern Warfare 3. Players are mostly using the MCW as the main AR but also using the MTZ 556 as a flex gun. Going back to Black Ops 4, that competitive season saw a Main AR, Flex AR, and Main SMG meta be formed and fans have yearned for that to return. With the current weapons, this may be the closest we've come to getting back a 3-gun meta.

Below are 15 weapon classes that professional players have been using during Week 1 of Modern Warfare 3. Each uses different attachments to get the most out of the weapon in differing situations. Give them all a try and let us know which weapon classes you like the best!
