Best Holger 556 Loadout in MW3 Ranked Play

The Holger 556 is strong at any range in MW3, but it’s especially dominant at long range. The rifle features almost no recoil and can kill in a few bullets no matter how far away your enemy is. Furthermore, all of these strengths are amplified by a set of key attachments for the Holger 556.

  • Muzzle: Casus Brake
  • Barrel: Chrios-6 Match
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: RB Addle Assault Stock
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop

With this loadout for the Holger 556, I’ve prioritized recoil control over mobility. The Holger is primarily a main AR weapon, so you won’t be fighting too many enemies at close range. The loadout begins with the Casus Brake muzzle, which reduces horizontal recoil, and the Chrios-6 Match barrel, adding some extra damage range and bullet velocity.

Moving on, the RB Addle Assault Stock provides more recoil control, while the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop offers boosts to accuracy as well as mobility. If you want more mobility, I suggest swapping the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop for the DR-6 Handstop. Finally, the MK. 3 Reflector is my optic of choice, but you could also run the Quarters Classic Reflex or Slate Reflector if you wish.
