Best gun in MW3?

I know a lot of people are going to say the ACR, MP7, PP90 etc.. but after 9 months and messing with my class a bit I've come to the conclusion that the MK14 is far and away the best gun in MW3. The gun itself has no weaknesses other than its semi auto fire rate. I don't think my trigger finger is very good, and the gun appears to perform miracles in my hands. It's got the range of a sniper, and the CQC ability of a shotgun, and it flat out dominates at mid range. All the guns that are the "best" have some kind of draw back, but not the MK14. Don't believe me? Give this class a shot

 

MK14 RDS+ Rapid Fire

MP9 Silencer

C4/Portable

 

Scav Pro/QuickDraw Pro/Stalker Pro

 

2: Marksman Pro

4: SoH Pro

6: Assasain Pro

 

I've played with this class for the last hour, only one MOAB but 30+ kills every game in KC.

    The best gun = the gun you do best with.

     

    Saying any particular gun is simply the best does not make a lot of sense.

     

    I do the best with : PM9, USAS, Model, M4A1, ACR (thermal), PPM90, M16 (very close to this order)

     

    Aside from the ACR, I doubt anyone would say that my list would be anywhere near the "best guns"

     

    And I do like your class, but I do fine with the MK14 not using that setup (In fact, I would not do any better with it).

     

    Some people may find that class very useful, but it is up to the individual skill of the player.

     

    (no disrespect intended, as it is a good post and could help some people... but best? think not... some people down right suck with the MK14)

      Good reply RL and so very true.  I can do well with almost ANY weapon in this game, if given time to practice with it and level it up.  Once you have a weapon to a certain level, you have a general feel for which situations results in more kills and you start putting yourself in those situations. 

       

      If your running shotties, don't run out into the open, stay to the sides and near buildings to avoid long range gun battles.  If running SMG or AR, you can pretty much do whatever you want with the correct setup.  Long range, short range, it really doesn't matter as long as you have the correct proficiency and attachment selected for the gun fights you want to participate in.  LMG's I try to stay as far from the enemy spawn as possible and it's the same with sniper rifles, no need to try anything close range with these weapons. 

       

      OP:  Every weapon in this game could be considered the best weapon.  I never used the PM9 throughout the entire time I prestiged.  Using it now and I consider the damn thing way OP, I can hip fire anyone across the map, don't believe me?  Give it a go yourself and get back at me.  Don't aim with it, hip fire only!!  Close range, long range, that thing is a beast!!!!!!!!

        Agree 100% ... it is stupid (and was pre-patch as well.. now it is just mega-stupid)

         

        I saw a clip from monkeylord and thought "I have to try that"... I have not looked back and got the gun gold twice.

         

        My "goto, try-hard, I am gonna tear things up" class.

        Anything (I use HL)

        Steady AiM

         

        Specialist: SOH, Anything, Anything

         

        Run around hip-firing and get multi-kills all day.

         

        Does that make the PM9 the best gun?

        • Re: Best gun in MW3?
          wridtrvlr

          The PM9 is becoming my go to, "I'm going to get these guys back" class.  I thought the MP7 was the easiest SMG to get headshots with and was wrong.  Its the PM9.  Even hip firing the thing I get tons of headshots with it!!

           

          I still have a love for my P90 though, maybe b/c it was practically the only weapon I used while going through the prestige levels. 

          • Re: Best gun in MW3?

            This gun (PM-9) I've found is probably best hip-fired at all times..lol. I wish I would've saved it, but I got an 'across the map' hip-fire kill and I'm talking 200 yards and landed the headshot to boot.

        I've used the PM9 a little bit. I know you mainly play HC, so I'm thinking that's why you find it so easy to hipfire, in core it's more of a longer range shot gun. Definitely has its niche, but it's got some major weaknesses

          You need to use it more. Seriously you have no idea about how the PM9 works. It's a gun thats best in the hands of people who move a lot where you need a  gun that'll consistantly drop 3-5 people with one long sweep burst.

          • Re: Best gun in MW3?

            Lmao me move? If I move I might be inclined to pick up tags and actually play the objective lol

              Yeah but on the same hand this is the reason your opinions on weapons are pretty much void. Like most non-movers you lean towards certain guns nowt wrong with it but you learn very little about the gun you're actually using. I'm always surprised when people don't see the MK14 as a run and gun weapon.

          It's true you have to have the right gun for the right situation, but I've used the PM9 extensively while playing DZ as well and had similar results with it.  The key is to never ever aim with it, well almost never.

          The PM9 isn't meant for every situation but it is quite deadly in core when you can keep the engagements midrange or closer and can hipfire it.  I usually use it with silencer and extended mags but rapidfire is also a nice choice.  I prefer the silencer though because the firerate is already so high and it keeps me off of the radar. It makes for great rushing gun.

            I picked up a PM9 with silencer and extended mag off the ground the other day and it felt pretty lethal.

            Although I can't shake the habit of having range on the thing.

    Many people will disagree with your post since they do not possess the skill necessary to use the MK14 effectively. Most players revel in the fact they can point their gun somewhere and spray until their magazine is empty. The MK14 is a great weapon, provided you know how to use it well. I've used it well enough to get the 2500 kills title with it but I'm not great with it. I would say it's a great camper weapon but I think the Type 95 still holds that high honor.

      Yeah assumptions never do work out to well using an MK14 is easy as it's just an easier to use version of the RSASS

      Run and gunning with an MK14 is ~meh~ due to it's power and ability to not only hip fire the thing but also spam fire it and get doubles and trips.

      The PM9 is a monster pure and simple and as for it being a "skill less gun" people thought it was unpowered enough to require a buff.

      Reality vs personal perception is never pretty

    Two guns that meet that and more are the P90 and the MP5. Using the P90 on dome I got 25 kills and 9 deaths my score was 2700 and we crushed them 65-8.

    On Dome a round where you beat the enemy 65-8 with straight up run and gun is rare. The round before that seatown MP5 only 21 kills but only 5 deaths score was 2700 and we won 65-9.

    Chraged around bakara with the MK14 nailed 35 kills 20 deaths (KD 1.75) score 4340 and a 65-31 win.

    Any gun can be the "best gun" if the person coming at you with it has taken the time to learn all the aspects of their weapon including the cheap kill options.

    The best gun in every COD game for me is the gun that cuts through the lag most efficiently. That's typically a favorable combination of firing cadence and stopping power.  In MW3 I've found that it's the PP followed by the SCAR and (since the buff) the UMP. 

     

    The semi-auto AR's would almost always be the best gun in these games in a perfect environment.  But with the constant connectivity issues I have, I just can't afford to use the MK14 when half my bullets aren't registering...

     

    It's also not the best gun for the run-n-gun play style I employ.  But even on bigger maps it just get clobbered by lag.  Give me the SCAR in that situation...

    I agree MK14 is the best Assault Rifle for sure, however generalising it as the best gun is not right because to be honest some of the pistols are really good. MP142 is a great pistol &amp; so is the USP.45, Personally I can get about 20-30 kills with Pistols lol!! So I like Pistols!!

     

    Back to your Q!

     

    I use MP7 w/ Kick/Range/2attachments + Silencer/extended mags.

    Secondary: RPG/SMAW/MP9 depends on my mood.

    C4 (Da Best) &amp; Emp Grenade (Handy Against Sentries &amp; IMS in one shot)

    Perk 1: Slight of Hand Pro

    Perk 2: Assassin Pro (Da Best)

    Perk 3: Stalker Pro/Steady Aim Pro/Dead Silence (Sneak up)

     

    Strike Packages: Predator -> Attack Heli -> Any 9+ upto Jugg.

     

    But utilising any gun is OK!

     

    The Key to success is the strategy you play with the gun. SMG's are mobile/pack a punch so I always flank &amp; R@pe them from Behind. Then sweep back &amp; forth. Rinse &amp; repeat :)

     

    LMG's I use w/ Support for cover fire, Sprays &amp; defensive.

     

    Snipers: Either L1... Or MSR, Bolt action is just more nice 8-) .. Any sniper with Heartbeat sensor &amp; Radar you can be mobile &amp; fully alert.

     

     

    So, Overall.. There is not "best gun" or "God Class" it's How you Play!!

     

    P.S. Use the PM-9 it's soooo fun!!! - MOABed with PM-9 Once!!
