No Call of Duty game is complete without at least one sniper that is primed for quickscoping and Modern Warfare 3 is no different. There are three new snipers in the game, and one of them is perfect for speed when you have the right loadout to go along.

Four of the attachments on this build are meant for ADS speed, sprint-to-fire speed, and overall mobility. The goal is to scope in as fast as possible and the Longbow has no equal in how fast you can aim down sights in the sniper rifle category. On other loadouts for the Longbow, I wouldn’t usually use a laser because the ADS speed is so high already. But in a quickscope build, the visible aspect won’t matter and it means more speed for us.

The SA-M Quickbolt is the only part of the attachment list that isn’t meant for ADS speed. Instead, it offers a faster fire rate. If you plan on getting kill chains at the speed of light, then the faster fire rate is almost mandatory. On the off chance that you think the weapon is better without it, you can add a mobility rear grip attachment instead.

Best Quickscope Sniper Perks and Equipment in MW3

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Assault Gloves
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Gear: Ghost T/V Camo
  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade or Semtex
  • Field Equipment: Trophy System
  • Sidearm: Renetti

Perks are the only important part of this setup and you just want to make sure you can move around undetected. After you start firing they’ll know you’re attacking, but the quickscope loadouts should tear through them before they can react.
