Best COR-45 loadout and attachments in MW3

  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Trigger Action: XRK V21 Heavy Match
  • Rear Grip: Granular Grip
  • Laser: FJX DIOD-70
  • Ammunition: .45 Auto High Grain

To start, we recommend using the XRK V21 Heavy Match to increase the weapon’s fire rate and sprint-to-fire speed. The Granular Grip helps with gun kick and recoil control so it’s great to pair this with the COR-45’s high rate of fire.

Then we have the FJX DIOD-70 Laser which can improve the COR-45’s aim speed and sprint-to-fire speed. While the pistol’s default ammo is pretty good, the .45 Auto High Grain ammo is better when dealing more damage to unarmored enemies. As for the optic, anything works but I’m partial to the Slate Reflector. This rounds out the best COR-45 loadout in MW3.

This loadout provides a balanced approach to making the most of the COR-45. It’s optimized for close to medium-range encounters, ensuring you have a competitive advantage in multiplayer matches. Whether you’re aiming to boost your Kill Death ratio or simply enjoy using this weapon in MW3, this loadout has you covered.

Best COR-45 perks and equipment in MW3

  • Vest: Demolition Vest
  • Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Stalker Boots
  • Gear: Trophy System
  • Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Frag Grenade

The Quick-Grip Gloves let you swap weapons faster, letting you react to threats better. As for the Stalker Boots, it makes you harder to hit with better strafe and ADS movement speed. In the grenades department, you can’t go wrong with the stun and frag combo. And thanks to the Demolition vest, these resupply every 25 seconds. These perks and equipment should give you an edge in close-range engagements and help you win more matches in MW3. 

Pairing the Overkill perk with a pistol doesn’t make much sense in MW3

This perk, offered by the Gunner vest, lets you carry 2 primary weapons. If you’ve decided to carry a pistol, other vests like the Demolition vest are a better pick in Modern Warfare 3.
