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)

Re: Best gun in MW3?

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.

PM9 with rapid fire and ext mags

Scavenger

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?

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.

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.

<3 that gun

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.

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.
