The AMR9 submachine gun in Warzone.

Since it was buffed in Season 1 Reloaded the AMR9 has remained a strong option and that hasn’t changed for Season 3 either. Here is the best AMR9 loadout to win more gunfights in Warzone and dominate up close.

At the start of Modern Warfare 3’s lifespan, the AMR9 was a remarkably average weapon. It was outperformed by not just most MW3 weapons but even a few MW2 guns too.

However, a buff in Season 1 Reloaded saw that change overnight with it quickly becoming one of if not the best SMG in Warzone. It has continued to be a top-tier option since thanks to its ease of use and low recoil.

Even so, it can be difficult to build properly for various reasons. To help you avoid making a sub-par loadout we’ve put together this best AMR9 loadout to use in Warzone.

  • Barrel: Tectonic Micro Integral Suppressor
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Magazine: 50 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Phantom Grip

What is going to set using the AMR9 apart from other SMG’s is how easy it is to maneuver around with. Your speed and overall movement will be a breeze, and further attachments will help with this.

The DR-6 Handstop is going to give you an enhanced weapon stability and movement speed, while the Phantom Grip will boost the ADS Speed. Further, the Slate Reflector is going to improve your precision and efficiency with the weapon.

The Tectonic Micro Integral Suppressor will give you an element of stealth to help you get the drop on your enemies with ease.

Finally, the 50 Round Drum is going to give you the ability to spray a lot of bullets in one round, giving you a better chance of taking out your enemy, or several in one go.
