Best Loadout for the XRK Stalker in Modern Warfare 3

Here are the best attachments for the XRK Stalker in Modern Warfare 3:

  • Barrel – Fission 60 Barrel
  • Bolt – XRK Stalker Light Bolt
  • Muzzle – Ster45 Skyfury Compensator
  • Rear Grip – Bruen Lynx Grip
  • Stock – Tac 840C Stock

The damage is through the roof on this sniper, so the attachments will focus on range, recoil, and accuracy to make them fly true. The Fission 60 Barrel will help increase range, and also aiming idle sway combined with the Bruen Lynx Grip.

The Ster45 Skyfury Compensator will decrease recoil, while the Tac 840C Stock will increase movement speed to offset the other attachments. The XRK Stalker Light Bolt will decrease the time that players will rechamber after each shot, and it can fire more in less time.
