The RAM-7 assault rifle is one of the newest weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 1, and we’ve put together the top five best loadouts and attachment combinations for several different play-styles.

The December 3 release of Season 1 in Modern Warfare was the start of the most significant post-launch content drop in Call of Duty history, introducing several new maps, modes, a Battle Pass, and two new weapons – the RAM-7 and Holger-26.

The RAM-7 is officially described in-game as a “fully automatic bullpup assault rifle with a compact design that lends itself to close-quarters engagements.”

The weapon is free to everyone on all platforms, but players do need to grind a bit before unlocking it, as it’s available only after Tier 31 of the Season 1 Battle Pass is reached. Or, of course, there’s always the option of purchasing Tiers to unlock it right away.

For those who have already unlocked it, or are close to doing so, we’ve built some great classes that you can use for a variety of play-styles, including run-and-gun, slower and long-range, balanced for objective modes, stealthy, and Overkill.

Best run-and-gun RAM-7 class (SMG build)

Infinity WardThe best fast-paced SMG-style build for the RAM-7 in Modern Warfare.

ATTACHMENTS

  • Barrel: FTAC 13.5″ Compact
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Stock: XRK Ultralight Hollow
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Sippled Grip Tape

SECONDARY – Combat Knife

PERKS

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Battle Hardened

EQUIPMENT

  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

FIELD UPGRADE: Dead Silence or Tactical Insertion

Running and gunning isn’t exactly the easiest play-style to adopt in Modern Warfare, especially with an assault Rifle. However, the RAM-7 has a combination of attachments that essentially turn it into an SMG, which helps with being aggressive.

Mobility is paramount with this kind of style, so it’s been maximized with this build, at the expense of Range and Control, which aren’t necessary if you plan to fly around the map.

Double Time is the perfect Perk 1 for this class, while Stim will help you heal quicker than average so you can get back in action faster. As for the Field Upgrade, Dead Silence is the right choice because it offers a speed boost in addition to silencing footsteps. However, Tactical Insertion isn’t a bad option either as it’ll all you to spawn closer to where the enemies are.

Best slower and long-range RAM-7 class

ATTACHMENTS

  • Barrel: XRK Ranger
  • Optic: Integral Hybrid
  • Stock: FTAC Equilibrium
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip
  • Rear Grip:  Rubberized Grip Tape

SECONDARY – M19 Handgun

PERKS

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: High Alert
  • Perk 3: Tune-Up

EQUIPMENT

  • Lethal: Claymore
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

FIELD UPGRADE: Stopping Power Rounds

For those who’d much rather sit back, play slow, and attack enemies long-range, this class is built for you. It’s very much the opposite of the previous one – Accuracy, Range, and Control have been given massive boosts, all at the expense of Mobility, which isn’t needed.

The Integral Hybrid scope is ideal for this kind of setup because it gives you both a standard scope for regular gunfights and a zoomed-in scope for better accuracy at a more extended range.

Since players will more than likely be aware of your position, E.O.D. ensures you can’t be killed with a single explosive; High Alert will notify you if you’re being aimed at from a different area, and Tune Up will let you get Stopping Power Rounds faster.

You can use a Claymore to protect yourself from any weak-side pushes, and if things become too messy, you can always pull out your Smoke Grenade to create an opportunity to escape.

Best balanced RAM-7 class (for objective modes)

Infinity WardThe best-balanced build for the RAM-7 in Modern Warfare.

ATTACHMENTS

  • Muzzle: Compensator
  • Barrel: FORGE TAC Eclipse
  • Stock: XRK Ultralight Hollow
  • Underbarrel: Tactical Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

SECONDARY – JOKR Launcher

PERKS

  • Perk 1: E.O.D or Quick Fix
  • Perk 2: Ghost or Pointman
  • Perk 3: Battle Hardened

EQUIPMENT

  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

FIELD UPGRADE: Trophy System or Tactical Insertion

As far as attachments go, this is probably the most balanced that the RAM-7 can be set up. Accuracy, Range, Mobility, and Control are all boosted, some more than others, and there are no stats that are in the red.

This weapon build can be used in pretty much any class, but the one we have here is built to excel in objective-based game modes. The JOKR Launcher might not be something most players carry as a secondary, but it can provide very effective countermeasures against enemy kill-streaks.

As for the Perks and Field Upgrade, the choices presented are based on two different objective play-styles – direct objective play and flanking.

If you’re one to always jump into the objective head-on, then E.O.D, Pointman, and Trophy System are the way to go. However, if you want flank around the objective and catch enemy teams off-guard, Ghost, and Tactical Insertion might be the play here.

Best stealthy RAM-7 class

Infinity WardThe best stealthy build for the RAM-7 in Modern Warfare.

ATTACHMENTS

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FTAC 13.5″ Compact
  • Stock: XRK Ultralight Hollow
  • Underbarrel: Tactical Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Granulated Grip Tape

SECONDARY – 0.50 GS Handgun

PERKS

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Ghost
  • Perk 3: Spotter

EQUIPMENT

  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

FIELD UPGRADE: Dead Silence

Sometimes players want to play faster-paced but don’t have the gun-skill to accommodate it. That’s where this stealth class comes into play. Much like the previous build, this RAM-7 setup is very balanced, and it also has the bonus of bullet suppression, so it’s harder for enemies to track where you’re shooting from.

Mobility is essential for a play-style like this since you don’t want to stay in one place for too long, so Double Time is the ideal Perk 1. Ghost will help you stay undetected by UAVs while Spotter, the Perk 3, will allow you to avoid any Claymores or other lethal traps opponents may have hidden.

Best Overkill RAM-7 class

Overkill has always been a great Perk in Call of Duty, even more so in Modern Warfare. Since there is no pick-10 class system in this game, players can carry two fully-maxed out primary weapons in a single class.

The key to a good Overkill class with the RAM-7 is first to decide which build of the gun you want to go with – the SMG-style, the one that maximizes long-range potential, or the balanced one.

Once you choose, you then have to pair it with another weapon that has the opposite primary function. Meaning, if you go with the run-and-gun RAM-7, you should pair it with a longer-range weapon, like a Sniper Rifle or Marksman Rifle.

However, if you choose to go with a longer-range RAM-7 build, then you would do well to pair it with an SMG that shreds at close range, like the MP7 pictured above. In either case, the rest of the class, in terms of Perks 2 and 3, Lethal, Tactical, and Field Upgrade is up to you, although going with Amped will help speed up weapon swapping.

There you have it – the five best classes and attachment setups for the new RAM-7 assault rifle. Now, load back into the game, build some of these in multiplayer, and let us know what you think!

Why Clayster flipped off CDL on-broadcast during Royal Ravens matchup

James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks flipped the bird to the Call of Duty League moments before the New York Subliners took on the Royal Ravens. Here’s why the veteran was all too frustrated before his latest matchup.

As players got settled into the lobby for the second week of CDL action in 2021, something clearly ticked off NYSL. There was visible frustration from the players before they kicked off the opening map.

Coming off a difficult 0-3 loss to the Los Angeles Thieves a week prior, the lineup was looking to rebound with a bang. Before they got their boots on the ground, however, a key moment from the previous week was broadcast for the world to see.

The CDL stream revealed Clayster’s heated comms after the disappointing loss. This private matter shouldn’t have been aired at all, according to Clay, let alone moments before their next match.

So, he took out his frustration the only way he could: flipping the bird on-stream.

“I had complained last time about showing my cam when I was super upset with my team,” he explained. “So I was pretty upset with them airing my after-match comms.”

Despite the 0-3 scoreline, NYSL’s series against the LA Thieves was one of the closest all week. The Hardpoint came within nine points, SnD went to a round 11, and Control went the distance as well.

Understandably, Clayster was fairly heated after the extremely close series that very well could have been a 3-0 in their favor.

“That was really bad guys,” he said in the now-public aftermath. “I don’t know what the f*** I watched. That was so stupid. We’re up 5-3 in the Search and we can’t close it out?”

This moment was captured on the broadcast last week but the comms were only just revealed today. Frustrated with the CDL running it without permission, Clayster stuck his middle finger up the next time his camera was on-stream.

“It was basically a nice little screw you before the match,” he said.

“I don’t appreciate that. I’m going to be having a talk with the league. If they’re going to make us sit here, I think it’s a little unprofessional to use the comms in the video. Especially right before we play a match.”

The NYSL vs Royal Ravens series begins at the 1:31:50 mark below.

While the video could have brought the team down, they didn’t let it get to them. NYSL dominated the Royal Ravens to rebound with a lopsided 3-0 win in Week 2.

If the League does try to punish Clayster, it looks like he’ll be alright: the official Subliners account tweeted “we’ll pay his fine” in response to the situation.
