Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Best Rival-9 Loadouts

Create an SMG with no recoil with these powerful Rival-9 builds.

Compared to its previous version, MW3’s RAM-7 features the same recoil and attachment options as MW2019, although its damage profile has been slightly altered to account for MW3’s increased player health. This guide will showcase multiple RAM-7 builds that make this assault rifle a powerhouse, ranging from accuracy configurations to strafe builds for more aggressive players.

  • -Reload Quickness
HVS 3.4 Pad (Stock)
  • +Gun Kick Control
  • +Recoil Control
  • -Sprint to Fire Speed
  • -Sprint Speed
  • -Movement Speed

This RAM build is perfect for Warzone. Just swap the 40 Round Mag attachment for a 60 Round Drum. The suppressor can also be replaced with an optic of your choosing.

As with the RAM in 2019, this version has an immense amount of visual recoil and poor aiming stability without any attachments. This build aims to make the RAM far more accurate by using recoil control and aiming stability attachments. Fortunately, we can do so without harming our ADS speed and with a minimal hit to the RAM’s sprint-to-fire delay.

The XRX Coremark 40 Heavy Barrel provides an immense boost to the RAM’s aiming stability while also increasing the gun’s effective range and recoil control. The HVS 3.4 Pad nearly eliminates all visual recoil from the RAM, and the SL Skeletal Vertical Grip lowers the vertical recoil while improving our ADS speed. Throw on a suppressor and a magazine extension, and you have a devastating assault rifle with minimal recoil.

Season 1 has added the Assassin Vest to the sandbox, and it’s easily the strongest vest option in the game. For the cost of your Field Upgrade, you gain the effects of MW2’s Ghost perk, hiding you from enemy radar at all times; you don’t need to move to trigger this perk. Additionally, your kills no longer leave death skulls for the enemy team. It’s an absurdly powerful vest that should be unlocked as soon as possible.

This vest pairs exceptionally well with Covert Sneakers, muffling your footstep audio to make your character virtually untraceable. EOD can be replaced with virtually any perk, but this perk is useful for clamping enemy explosive damage. The Commando Gloves let you reload on the move, and Stims allow you to immediately heal after a gunfight. The rest of your loadout is down to preference.

The TAQ Eradicator is one of Modern Warfare 3’s strongest LMGs, especially with this build.

  • +Aim Idle Sway
  • +Firing AIm Stability
  • -Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
  • -Sprint to Fire Speed
  • -Movement Speed
  • -Aim Walking Speed

Thanks to the RAM’s suite of attachment options, you can create a powerful strafe build that turns this gun into an AR/SMG hybrid. The SO Klondike-45 Long Barrel greatly improves your strafe speed and handling stats at the cost of stability.

That stability penalty is countered by the SZ 1mw PEQ Laser and Hunter-5 Stock Pad. The stock does reduce your strafe speed, but only slightly. The FTAC MSP-98 Handstop further improves this build’s strafe speed, giving you a strafe speed of 3.3 m/s. Equip the Shadowstrike Suppressor to finish the build. If you dislike the RAM’s iron sights, you can put on any optic in its place.

We’ll be recommending the same loadout as our previous build for this strafe configuration. The Assassin Vest with Covert Sneakers is simply too good to pass up for nearly all Multiplayer weapons, the RAM included. If you want to improve your strafe speed further, you can trade Covert Sneakers for Stalker Boots, although we find the muffled footsteps of Covert Sneakers to be far more valuable.

Tac Stance RAM-7 Build

RAM-7 Build
Attachment Pros And Cons
Corvus PEQ Beam-5 (Laser)
  • +Hip Recoil Control
  • +Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
S-37C DL Breacher Device (Muzzle)
  • +Melee Damage
  • +Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
Cronen Grooveshot Grip (Underbarrel)
  • +Aim Walking Steadiness
  • +Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
Demo Flak Comb (Comb)
  • +Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
  • +Recoil Control
  • +Gun Kick Control
Motion-Tac Pad (Stock)
  • +Hipfire and Tac Stance Spread
  • +Sprint to Fire Speed
  • +Movement Speed
  • +Sprint Speed
  • -Gun Kick Control
  • -Aiming Idle Sway
  • -Firing Aim Stability

Our final RAM build is tailored towards tac stance, making this an ideal build for completing camo challenges on the RAM. We spec heavily into hipfire and tac stance accuracy with all five attachments: the Corvus PEQ Beam-5, the S-37DL Breacher Device, Cronen Grooveshot Grip, Demo FLak Comb, and Motion-Tac Pad.

You can technically get more tac stance accuracy by swapping the S-37 DL Breacher Device for Haste XV Grip Tape, but you’ll gain a noticeable recoil penalty. We don’t find the extra 0.1 degrees of accuracy worth the added recoil, but feel free to try it for yourself.

Even with no suppressor equipped, the Assassin Vest and Covert Sneakers are too good to pass up. Staying off enemy radar until you shoot is invaluable for aggressive gameplay, and the muffled footstep audio from Covert Sneakers ensures that you can get close to enemies in the first place. Run EOD or Tac Mask to counter Lethals and Tacticals, respectively.
