You can choose many weapons before deploying into Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, but if you’re headed into the higher tier zones, you want to have the best tool for the job. I’ll review the best gun for MW3 Zombies in this guide.

What is the Best Gun to Use in MW3 Zombies?

The best weapon to use in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies is the DG-58 assault rifle. Overall, the Wonder Weapons are the best weapons in the game, but that’s a given. You can’t reliably get a Wonder Weapon every time you load into a match, so you need a guaranteed alternative in your primary slot. That’s where the DG-58 truly shines.

Compared to other rifles in MW3 Zombies, the DG has a ton of damage in each burst. Once you Pack-A-Punch the gun, it turns into a 6-round burst that decimates any enemies in your path. Because Zombies is all about taking down large mobs in a train and then running again, having a weapon with burst damage is a massive boon. Just make sure to have an extended magazine ready to go.

For a great alternative, I would run the Holger 556 as one of the most versatile weapons in Modern Warfare 3. This weapon hits nearly as hard as the DG-58 with a little less accuracy requirement. Fully automatic weapons can be great for trains, and the Holger has almost as much damage as the DG.

In the best-case scenario, you can use a schematic to craft a Ray Gun and then place the DG-58 in your secondary slot. This is the best combo in Zombies to take down any boss or tear through the hordes.
