Custom Holger 556 Attachments
Best Holger 556 Attachments – [Captured By Me]
Here are all the attachments you will need to make the best Holger 556 loadout in MW3: 

  • Muzzle: EX-01 Match Compensator 
  • Barrel: Cross-X Short Barrel 
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Tiger Grip
  • Magazine: 40 Round Magazine 
  • Stock: RB Addle Assault Stock 
  • Faster TTK
  • Aiming Stability
  • Recoil Control
  • Increased Bullet Velocity


  • Reduced Aim Walking Stability
  • Slight Decrease in Sprinting Speed


The first attachment you have to equip is the EX-01 Match Compensator Muzzle, which will grant you some needed Firing Aim Stability. The Cross-X short barrel will help you regain the decreased mobility and handling of the weapon after you attach the muzzle. 

The FTAC Tiger Grip increases the accuracy statistic of your Holger 556. Having it as your rear grip is essential because you will need that extra boost on your control over the Aim Idle Sway. Hip Fire Accuracy also gets a two-point increase.

Important: You need to switch to the 40-round magazine for the Magazine because your Default Magazine for Holger 556 is just 20 rounds. The additional 20 bullets will make much difference when battling multiple opponents.

The last attachment to add to your loadout is the RB Addle Assault Stock. As of now, your attachments aren’t that bad on their own, but this was a last-minute edition for me. The stock actually improved the recoil control to the point that it became a 0 recoil weapon.  

Class Setup

Best Holger 556 Class Setup – [Captured By Me]
The following is the best class setup of perks and equipment I recommend keeping for Holger 556: 

  • Secondary Weapon: Renetti Handgun
  • Tactical Equipment: Scatter Mine
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions Box
  • Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Stalker Boots
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Vest: Demolition Vest

For the secondary weapon, I use the Renetti pistol. It is extremely reliable and can be switched from a burst type to a semi-automatic secondary weapon. Scatter Mine is a great Tactical Equipment, especially when you want to cover a large area with mines. Y

  • Semtex is the best lethal equipment you can have for this loadout.
  • The Semtex grenade sticks to anything you throw it at, so you might as well aim it at the opponent. If you’re lucky, you can even get a squad wipe!
  • Munitions Box is a great Field Upgrade, as it comes in handy when you run out of bullets and need a quick resupply.
  • Quick-Grip gloves increase the swapping speed between your weapons, so you can easily switch to the Renetti when you run out of bullets for your primary Holger 556. 
  • Stalker Boots provides you with an increase in Strafe in ADS Speed. The increase will help you better avoid bullets and fire back simultaneously.
