The SVA 545 offers up a unique gimmick that other weapons don’t have in Modern Warfare 3, which is two quick shots fired on the first pull, followed by a standard rate of fire. Using the weapon can feel odd, but I have a great loadout that makes the AR feel controllable and powerful in MW3. Here’s the best SVA 545 Loadout for Modern Warfare 3.

Best Loadout for the SVA 545 in Modern Warfare 3

  • Barrel: STV Precision Barrel
  • Muzzle: L4R Flash Hider
  • Underbarrel: Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip
  • Stock: FT TAC-Elite V3 Stock
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector

Most assault rifles can do better with the Phantom-5 Handstop but this loadout aims to keep the odd recoil of the SVA in check. Hitting your initial two shots is integral to the weapon and the following shots tend to start getting horizontal. All of the pieces in this build help to keep the shots controlled without hurting too much of the ADS speed.

Of all the vests, the Infantry Vest is the most boring and effective. It doesn’t remove a perk like the Gunner Vest and allows you to move faster due to the cooldown on Tac Sprint. The only other tough choice for perks is the Boots slot because there are some powerful options. Lightweight and Tactical Pads are both enticing, but having silent footsteps is hard to beat.

How to Unlock the SVA 545 in MW3

To unlock the SVA 545, you need to reach level 4. The custom loadouts unlock after level 4, so you have some time to test other weapons beforehand. However, there is no SVA in the default loadout, which means you can’t level the weapon until you reach 4 or you pick up the weapon off the ground.
