The strongest AMR9 loadout in the Modern Warfare 3 Beta excels in close-range gunfights, making short work of opponents in multiplayer.

Out of all the SMGs in MW3, it's by far the most underappreciated, but that doesn't mean it can't perform in your matches. Equipped with solid TTK and movement stats, it's well worth adding this gun to your loadout list if you have a meta AMR9 MW3 loadout.

So, let's jump into the best AMR9 loadout in the Modern Warfare 3 beta, so you have the best shot at reaching the sought-after nuke killstreak.

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Barrel: Tectonic Herald Light
  • Stock: Tectonic Tactical Ultralight
  • Optic: MK. 23 Reflector

First of all, equip the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor muzzle to your AMR9 to ensure you're gunfire is undetectable on the radar. This is key in multiplayer, or you run the risk of enemies hunting you down once they see your location on the minimap.

Following this, the Tectonic Herald Light Barrel is a brilliant choice as it provides aim walking steadiness and most importantly, a boost of movement speed. To take the gun's agility to the next level though, you'll need the Tectonic Tactical Ultralight stock.

Next up, you'll want to use the MK. 23 Reflector optic so all your bullets hit the mark during close-quarter combat.

Finally, the 50 Round Mag means you'll never run out of ammo during an intense skirmish, and can easily take down another foe before having to reload.

  • Gloves: Quick Grip
  • Boots: Lightweight
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Vest: Infantry


  • Lethal: Grenade
  • Tactical: Battle Rage
  • Field Upgrade: Munitions

Creating the best AMR9 setup begins with Quick Grip Gloves so you can quickly switch to your secondary. Following this, Lightweight Boots are a must for SMG users as they increase your movement speed. Paired with the Infantry Vest for the tac-sprint enhancement, you'll be unmatched on the mobility front.

When it comes to Gear, EOD Padding is best so you don't get taken down by frustrating non-killstreak explosives.

For top-tier equipment, go with the classic Grenade, Battle Rage for aggressive pushes, and of course, a trusty Munitions Box so you never run out of ammo.

How to unlock the AMR9 in MW3

In order to unlock the AMR9 in the Modern Warfare 3 Beta, you'll need to reach level 21. This shouldn't take too long, especially if you dive into the Moshpit playlist.

While the AMR9 is powerful, it's hard to ignore that it sits at the bottom of our best SMG rankings in MW3 at the moment.

So, if the weapon just isn't fitting your style of play, in my opinion, you should test out the class Striker. Known as the UMP45 back in the OG days of MW2 (2009), this lethal SMG has top-tier mobility and a devastating TTK.

For a full breakdown of the best Striker loadout in MW3, here's our dedicated guide, which should help you rack up countless killstreaks in the beta.
