The AMR9 is a trending SMG in MW3 due to its fierce offensive capabilities. When set on full auto, it can penetrate through its target and knock it down within a blink. AMR9 can completely dominate at close range if you keep your aim accurate and equip it with the right attachments.

I recommend using the following attachments for AMR9:

  • Barrel: Tectonic Micro Integral Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop
  • Stock: Hellhound Carbine Stock
  • Rear Grip: Sakin ZX Grip
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Increased Movement Speed
  • Sprint to Fire Speed
  • High Bullet Velocity
  • Improved Vertical Recoil
  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Optic Favors close-range

The main focus is to make the AMR9 a close-range beast, and these attachments will help enhance the base stats of the weapon. To make the weapon silent and undetectable by radars in close range, I use the Tectonic Micro Integral Suppressor. It helps me to take down enemies off guard without getting in sight. 

To control the recoil of the weapon while firing full sprays, the XRK Edge BW-4 Handstop and the Hellhound Carbine Stock will do the job. Although using these attachments affects ADS speed a bit, the significant improvement in recoil control is worth the trade. Finally, to improve the accuracy of AMR9, I use the Sakin ZX Grip, which further helps in weapon handling and vertical recoil control. 

As the iron sight of AMR9 is not that impressive, I recommend using an Optic for a better view. In my case, the classic Slate Reflector works best as I prefer a single dot on the optic sight. 

Best Perks And Equipment

The following are the best Perksequipment, and secondary weapons for AMR9 in MW3:

  • Secondary: Renetti
  • Vest: Demolition Vest
  • Gloves: Commando Gloves
  • Boots: Running Sneakers
  • Gear: Bone Conduction Headset

In multiplayer quick mode matches, you have to deal with continuous action, and in that case, it is optimal to have a backup option. If your primary runs out of bullets, instead of reloading, you can quickly swap to your secondary pistol and fire those last shots to take your opponent down. In that case, the classic Renetti will be the most suitable choice.

In the Perks section, I use the Commando Gloves and the Running Sneakers as they help me increase the tac sprint duration and reload weapons while sprinting. The Bone Conduction Helmet helps me identify enemies more easily and keeps me alert against nearby opponents. Lastly, I use the Demolition Vest as it is one of the best Vests in MW3 and resupplies Lethal and Tactical equipment every 25 seconds.

For equipment, I use the following: 

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Munition Box

Nothing works well for me other than the classic frag-stun combo, so I always carry them in my Lethal and Tactical slot. The frag helps me clear out an area or take out multiple enemies smoothly, while the stun grenade helps me rush on campers and catch them off guard. 

For Field Upgrade, I use the munition box to have an extra ammo supply that could be useful for the allies. 

My Take On the Best AMR9 Loadout

My Steam Profile and MW3 Hours

Rival 9 is undoubtedly one of the best choices in the SMG category for close-range interactions. Whenever I feel like playing Quickmathches, especially War Mode, I use this AMR9 loadout, and it never disappoints me.

While AMR9 is a reliable choice in close-quarter combats, it is not that impressive when the range increases. If you’re against a sniper in long-range combat, you will be at a huge disadvantage. So, make sure to use the weapon accordingly and use its capabilities the right way.
