The Rival-9 is one of the best close-range SMGs in MW3, so it’s no wonder why so many players have been using it in their loadouts.
Here’s the meta Rival-9 loadout to use in Modern Warfare 3 so you can eliminate your enemies in the blink of an eye:
|Attachment||How to Unlock|
|Monolithic Suppressor S (Muzzle)||Rival-9 Level 7|
|Rival 38-E Fire Starter Barrel (Barrel)||Rival-9 Level 16|
|MK. 3 Reflector (Optic)||MTZ-556 Level 2|
|Chewk Angled Grip (Underbarrel)||Longbow Level 11|
|Rival Vice Assault Grip (Rear Grip)||MTZ-762 Level 6|
This Rival-9 build helps increase the weapon’s range and accuracy, while also keeping it fast enough for you to move around your enemies quickly.
Despite this, the Rival-9 is still very much a close-range weapon and can struggle at mid-distance due to its high recoil and even higher fire rate!
Best Secondary, Perks, Vest & Equipment for Rival-9 Loadout
As the Rival-9 is perfect for super-close-range combat, you will need Perks, Vest and Equipment for an aggressive playstyle, alongside a Secondary Weapon that has decent range.
