When it comes to building the best meta weapon loadout in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded, one cannot go wrong with the HRM-9 SMG. It was added to the game with the mid-season update and despite being a new gun, it instantly became a fan-favorite. The SMG is perfect for close-quarter encounters and boasts a superior fire rate and damage profile, making it the go-to gun for almost all maps in the game.

However, on its own, the SMG does little good. To get the most out of the HRM-9 SMG, you must equip attachments and create a proper class around it that helps leverage its strengths while minimizing its weaknesses. That said, in this guide, we’ll take a closer look at the best HRM-9 meta loadout to use in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded.

To make the most out of the HRM-9 meta weapon loadout in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded, it is highly recommended to use the following attachments:

  • Barrel: Princeps Long Barrel
  • Muzzle: Colossus Suppressor S
  • Underbarrel: Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum
  • Stock: Folding Stock

Here’s how these attachments will affect the SMG:

Princeps Long Barrel gives a huge boost to the damage range and bullet velocity, making the SMG ideal for mid-range engagements. Furthermore, this barrel attachment stabilizes the aim, which makes it easier to shoot the targets.

Equipping the Colossus Suppressor S is a fantastic way to stay off the radar when shooting. However, unlike most other suppressors in the game, the Colossus also assists in recoil control, which, once again, will make the weapon more accurate.

Kimura RYN-03 Vertical Grip also stabilizes the aim. But it comes with many additional benefits. For instance, it helps with gun kick control as well as recoil control. This enables you to spray down your targets without missing any shots.

50 Round Drum is a must-have attachment for this SMG. Since it boasts a fast fire rate, you will be running out of bullets pretty quickly. Hence, having this attachment equipped ensures that you don’t end up reloading in the middle of a gunfight.

Finally, the Folding Stock. It also makes the weapon more accurate by controlling the recoil, and the gun kick and stabilizing the aim. This stock will come in handy when you’ll be shooting down targets that are quite far from you.

Using the right attachments to build the HRM-9 meta weapon in Modern Warfare 3 is only half the task. You must create a proper class setup and use Perks to maximize its potential. Hence, it is advised to use the following:

Perk Package

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Assault Gloves
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Gear: EOD Padding

Equipment

  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: A.C.S

Using this Perk Package will ensure your survival against many hazards. The Infantry Vest will increase the Tactical Sprint duration, making it easier to run away from your targets or chase them down. The Assault Gloves ensure that you don’t lose any accuracy points while jumping or mantling over obstacles.

Covert Sneakers ensure that enemies don’t hear you running around as they eliminate your footsteps. This makes it easier for you to flank your enemies and take them down without them knowing about your whereabouts. Finally, the EOD Padding protects you from enemy lethal equipment by reducing the damage taken. This is great for holding sites in game modes like Domination or Hardpoint.

As for the Equipment, you cannot go wrong with the Stim. It heals you up quickly, allowing you to join the fight without wasting a second. The Frag Grenade is one of the best lethal equipment in Call of Duty games. It can be thrown far off to eliminate unsuspecting targets, cook it for a quick close kill, or bounce off walls to reach areas that other lethal equipment cannot reach.

Finally, the A.C.S Field Upgrade is great if you prefer playing objective-based game modes such as Hardpoint or Domination. Simply drop it off at one of the sites and let it collect the points for you and the team as you go about your killing spree.


Best secondary to HRM-9 meta weapon loadout in Modern Warfare 3

To supplement the HRM-9 meta weapon loadout in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 Reloaded, it is advised to use a pistol such as the TYR. It performs exceptionally well at long ranges if one can connect the shots. Needless to say, it is considered a pocket Sniper Rifle by the community, and its damage-dealing capabilities at range certainly prove them right.

However, if you don’t wish to use a Handgun, it is advised to use the Overkill Vest and equip the Riot Shield instead as it may save your life by protecting you from being shot in the back.
