The Marksman Rifle can be a great alternative to a Sniper Rifle as it offers increased mobility while still packing a punch, which allows for a more aggressive playstyle compared to camping with a Sniper. Here are all of the launch Marksman Rifles in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 ranked from worst to best.
4. KVD Enforcer
The KVD Enforcer is a great Marksman Rifle in Modern Warfare 3 with impressive damage, accuracy, recoil, and mobility. It is capable of one-shot killing your enemies while also being very versatile to not be solely a long-range weapon. With the right attachments, you can increase the ADS and movement speeds, making it a weapon you can confidently put in your loadout.
The MTZ Interceptor is a great choice if you’re looking to use a Marksman Rifle in your loadout, but it does suffer from one major flaw in its accuracy and recoil. By using the right attachments you can tame these and make it a very viable option, especially when combined with the 20 Round Magazine so you have plenty of ammo to take care of your opponents before needing to reload.
2. MCW 6.8
The MCW 6.8 is known for being a very reliable and stable Marksman Rifle while also boasting incredible damage output. It is unlocked at level 25 so it shouldn’t be too long until you can add it to your loadout, which is something you should consider. With the right attachments, you can improve the recoil and flinch resistance while also expanding the magazine size. One of the best attachments is the Kimura Silentsho Integral, which makes it so you won’t be detected when firing, meaning your position won’t be given away when you are camping in an area and picking off your enemies.
Every Marksman Rifle has its pros and cons and they are all viable in one way or another, but the DM56 is the most well-rounded of the group, making it the best choice for those who don’t want to use most of their attachments trying to tame whatever issue the weapon has.
The DM56 boasts a good level of damage and fire rate and excels at medium to long-range engagements. Attachments such as the Chrios-6 Match and Ster45 Skyfury Compensator help to increase ADS speed and mobility, while the Slate Reflector can help to boost its range and make it a great long-range alternative to a Sniper Rifle.
