Best WSP-9 Loadout in MW3 Ranked Play Season 3

A great close-range option for SMG users.

In a recent update, the WSP Swarm was banned from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) Ranked Play. If you want to replace the WSP Swarm with another SMG, look no further than its brother, the WSP-9. Here is the best WSP-9 loadout in MW3 Ranked Play.

Best WSP-9 Loadout in Ranked Play

The WSP-9 shoots much slower but packs a stronger kick compared to the WSP Swarm. It features roughly the same mobility, but thanks to the slower fire rate, it also has better accuracy. We’ll be taking advantage of these strengths to make the best possible WSP-9 loadout for Ranked.

  • Barrel: WSP Ortac Long Barrel
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: WSP Classics Factory Stock
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: Marauder Grip

My chosen barrel for the WSP-9 is the WSP Ortac Long Barrel, which restricts the use of a muzzle. However, thanks to the increased accuracy, damage range, and bullet velocity of the barrel, a muzzle isn’t really required for the loadout. Following the barrel, I have the WSP Classics Factory Stock and Marauder Grip equipped, both of which improve recoil control and aiming stability.

For mobility purposes, the DR-6 Handstop is all you need. The underbarrel boosts aim down sight speed, sprint-to-fire time, and movement speed, giving you terrific handling with the WSP-9. The final attachment on the loadout is an optic, the MK. 3 Reflector. You’re free to use another red dot sight of you’re choosing, of course, but the Reflector is the pick for most competitive players.
