The Best MCW 6.8 Builds In MW3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has four new marksman rifles for players to try, most of which are quite powerful in the hands of an accurate player. The MCW 6.8 is arguably one of MW3’s best weapons in this category, featuring minimal recoil, one-hit headshots, and a full-auto conversion kit that turns the gun into a battle rifle.

Unlock this year’s Interstellar mastery camo by completing these Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer camo challenges.

If you can handle the weapon’s recoil, you can use the MCW 6.8 to great effect in both core Multiplayer and Warzone. But to make the MCW 6.8 a true powerhouse, you will need the right build. This guide will showcase two builds that push this weapon to its limit, featuring a powerful stealth build and a full-auto variant that uses the MCW 6.8’s unique conversion kit.

The MCW 6.8 is already a fantastic marksman rifle without any attachments, but you can make this an excellent stealth weapon with a few attachments. Use the Shadowstriker Suppressor L to completely hide your minimap icon while firing, and then pair it with your choice of optic for easy headshots.

The weapon does have a small amount of recoil, but this can easily be fixed with the RB Claw-PSL Grip. This greatly reduces the gun’s recoil at the cost of aiming stability. You can compensate for the stability reduction by using the SL Warforged Precision Stock. Throw on the SL Skeletal Vertical Grip for more ADS speed, and you have the perfect mid-range marksman rifle.

Loadout Recommendations

Perks
Vest Assassin
Gloves Marksman Gloves
Boots Covert Sneakers
Gear EOD
Equipment
Secondary Preference
Lethal Throwing Knife
Tactical Stim

A suppressed weapon won’t do much without the use of Ghost or the Assassin Vest. We opt for the latter since it makes you invisible to enemy radar at all times, even while stationary. Throw on Covert Sneakers to muffle your footstep audio, and enemies will struggle to find you. For gloves, we use Marksman Gloves to reduce incoming flinch.

You can replace EOD with Hijacked IFF Strobe if you want to hide from enemy killstreaks and equipment.

As for your equipment, we recommend Stims to recover your HP quickly and Throwing Knives for quick one-hit kills when an enemy gets near you. Your secondary should cover close-range duels. Any fast-firing pistols, such as the Renetti and WSP Stinger, are ideal for this loadout.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Season One Battle Pass in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3!

Full-Auto MCW 6.8 Build

MCW 6.8 Build
Attachment Pros And Cons
MCW 6.8 Full-Auto Conversion Kit (Aftermarket Part)
  • Full-Auto Fire
  • +Magazine Capacity
  • +Movement Speed
Nydar Model 2023 (Optic)
Shadowstrike Suppressor L (Muzzle)
SL Skeletal Vertical Grip (Underbarrel)
  • +Aim Down Sights Speed
  • +Vertical Recoil
  • +Gun Kick Control
  • +Sprint to Fire Speed
  • -Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
  • -Horizontal Recoil
R8 Crotalus Assault Stock (Stock)
  • +Recoil Control
  • +Gun Kick Control

This build converts the MCW 6.8 into a full-auto marksman rifle. The MCW 6.8 Full-Auto Conversion Kit will lower your damage to 53 per upper torso hit and 58 per headshot, but the weapon will now fire in full-auto at 400 RPM. It’s effectively a battle rifle with a shockingly fast reload speed.

There is a noticeable increase to the gun’s recoil with this conversion kit installed, so we recommend using the RB Crotallus Assault Stock. It more or less removes the added recoil from the conversion kit. Throw on the Shadowstrike Suppressor L, an optic, and the SL Skeletal Vertical Grip to complete the build.

We’re recommending the same loadout for this build. The Assassin Vest pairs nicely with the Shadowstrike Suppressor to keep you off enemy radar, and Covert Sneakers will muffle your footstep audio to make flanks much safer. Marksman Gloves help minimzie the increased flinch marksman rifles receive, and EOD makes Lethal Equipment far less dangerous.
