The best Striker 9 class in Modern Warfare 3
The best accessories for the Striker 9
- Mouth: Sonic S silencer
- Barrel accessory: XRK Edge BW-47 handguard
- Magazine: 40-round magazine
- Rear handle: Sakin ZX handle
- Stock: FSS Priority tactical stock
We start this Striker 9 class with the Sonic S Silencer. If this submachine gun is extremely mobile, it still has a decent range that is interesting to improve, also with a small velocity buff that cannot be refused.
To never be surprised at the corner of a corridor, opt for the XRK Edger BW-47 Handguard gun accessory, which offers a nice bonus to ADS and sprint-to-fire speed, in order to win in reactivity.
Next, it’s time to tackle weapon control, which is often the weak point of submachine guns. With the FSS Priority Tactical Stock and the ZX Grip, your Striker won’t slip out of your hands and you can easily keep your target in the sights.
Finally, we opt for the 40-round magazine which is not too much given the nice rate of fire of this SMG.
The best assets and equipment with the Striker 9
- Vest: Infantry vest
- Gloves: Commando Gloves
- Boots: Hedging shoes
- Equipment: Anti-detection camouflage
- Tactic: Battle Rage
- Lethal: Semtex
- Combat Upgrade: DCE
In terms of assets, we opt for the classic mobility trio: Infantry vest, Commando gloves and Cover shoes. This combination gives you better tactical sprinting, the ability to reload while sprinting, and covered footsteps.
Since the sound of footsteps is not the only way to be spotted in MW3, we choose the Anti-detection Camouflage, which will take care of hiding you from nasty radars.
If many players choose a grenade duo, we recommend trying Battle Rage on your SMG classes. The huge stat boost given can make the difference in many situations. As for equipment, a good old Semtex will do the trick.
Finally, we recommend the DCE improvement, which will take care of capturing the objectives for you. With such a mobile weapon and class, you have better things to do than hang around at a checkpoint!
