Best SVA 545 loadout and attachments in MW3

  • Muzzle: HMRES Mod Suppressor
  • Barrel: Authority IV Short Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Chewk Angled Grip
  • Stock: Skelly Folding Stock
  • Rear Grip: Citadel Grip
  • Optic: MK.3 Reflector

For our attachments, we’re going to pick the HMRES Mod Suppressor. This will give us some bullet velocity, and keep us off the radar. Since the SVA 545 fires in short bursts, being silent improves your odds of racking multiple kills. Our barrel choice is the Authority IV Short barrel, which gives us additional movement speed, aim walking speed, and steadiness. For our Under barrel, we have the Chewk Angled Grip. This overall gives us a lot of additional control over our gun.

The Skelly Folding stock gives us more mobility. Our rear grip is the Citadel Grip, which gives us a very important aim down sight speed, and some more overall control. Consider a 45 Round Mag if you aren’t securing kills or if you want to tackle multiple opponents without reloading ammunition. As for the scope, don’t be picky. The MK.3 Reflector is a good pick if the usual iron sights aren’t to your liking in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3.

Best SVA 545 perks and equipment in MW3

  • Vest: Infantry
  • Gloves: Scavenger
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Boots: Lightweight
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Flash Grenades
  • Field Equipment: Comm Scrambler

For our perks, we’re going with the Infantry vest. This gives us increased tac sprint duration. The Overkill or Gunner vest lets you carry two primary weapons, letting you bring a sniper rifle or shotgun alongside the SVA 545. So consider it for some extra versatility if you don’t value tac sprint. Then for the Gloves, we’re using Scavenger to keep our ammo reserves topped up. For the gear slot, EOD Padding is our pick, as it will help keep you alive against random grenades that are thrown around the map.

Finally, for our Boots, we’re using Lightweight ones to further boost our tac sprint duration. You could also go with Stalker Boots for better ADS move speed if that’s your style. Here’s how to get strafing kills in MW3 to improve your survivability.

For our equipment, we’re picking the Semtex (or Frag Grenades) for our Lethal, Flash grenades for our tactical, and the Comm Scrambler for our Field Upgrade. Munitions box might help if your allies don’t pick this valuable equipment. These are pretty standard choices, and you can’t go wrong with them. Pick and choose what best fits you.
