The UMP is back in the form of the Striker, and it’s easily one of the best weapons in Modern Warfare 3. Like any other weapons in the recent Call of Duty games, though, you need to utilize the best attachments. Here’s the best Strike loadout in Modern Warfare 3.

Best Attachments for the Striker in MW3

Here is the best loadout for the Striker in Modern Warfare 3:

  • Barrel: Striker Recon Long Barrel
  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spitfire Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
  • Stock: Lachmann Nemesis-10 Stock

The goal with this loadout is to maximize the Striker’s mobility and ADS speed while also ensuring the weapon is versatile. If you don’t want to use the Suppressor, you can opt for an optic instead or throw on some High Grain ammunition for more of a punch.

Best Striker Class and Perks in MW3

Here is the best class for the Striker in Modern Warfare 3 with perks and equipment:

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

Covert Sneakers and Ghost are the main ways to stay mobile on the map. The sneakers hide your footsteps, while Ghost ensures you remain hidden from UAVs while moving. There is no better way to encourage fast-paced gameplay in MW3, and I can’t recommend these perks enough.

How to Unlock the Striker in Modern Warfare 3

You can unlock the Striker once you reach level 4 in Multiplayer. This is the minimum level you need to reach for custom loadouts and you can easily reach it within a match or two. And if you want a headstart on weapon XP, try out the weapon in the default loadouts section.
