The BAS-B is the best battle rifle in the MW3 Beta, and this loadout for it significantly decreases its recoil.

Despite its lower fire rate, it can kill very quickly at long range, making it a perfect gun for the War game mode.

The Rival-9 absolutely dominates close-range gunfights and suits a very aggressive playstyle. However, it is not as versatile as other SMGs like the Striker, as its range is limited.
