January 11, 2024: After some testing, we've got all the intel on the best Modern Warfare 3 Bruen MK9

The best Modern Warfare 3 Bruen Mk9 loadout will be crucial if you plan on using the LMG in multiplayer matches. This gun first appeared in 2019's Modern Warfare, but it returns for the latest instalment to stake its claim to the MW3 meta.

The Bruen Mk9 in Modern Warfare 3 is an undeniably burly gun, meaning mobility is low but sheer firepower is high. If you plan on using it, be prepared to play more of a suppressive role, due to just how hefty the gun is.

Before we get into the best MW3 Bruen Mk9 loadout, be sure to brush up on how to change loadout in the game. We've also got a full Modern Warfare 3 gun list, plus a campaign walkthrough.

What is the best Modern Warfare 3 Bruen Mk9 loadout?

  • Perks: Gunner / Commando / Stalker / Mag Holster
  • Grenades: Frag / Flash

This Bruen Mk9 build doesn't address the mobility but it does enhance damage output and recoil control in mid-range and long-distance engagements. The perks help strafing and aim-down sight speeds while the combination of utility is great for dealing some extra damage throughout a match.

Best Modern Warfare 3 Bruen Mk9 attachments

The Modern Warfare 3 gunsmith features a huge range of attachments capable of gearing the Bruen Mk9 to suit any style of play imaginable. After testing various combinations, we've settled on this set of five:

  • Barrel: FT Ferocity LR Barrel
  • Optic: Slimline Pro
  • Stock: Lane-56 Stock
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: Bruen Q900 Grip Wrap

The improvements to bullet velocity and range come from the FT Ferocity LR Barrel to minimise any damage drop-off at longer distances. The only attachment that addresses recoil is the Lane-56 Stock. Although there's plenty of kick, it's still easy to control the Bruen Mk9 in Modern Warfare 3.

Enhancements to faster aim-down sight and sprint-to-fire come from the DR-6 Handstop and the Bruen Q900 Grip Wrap. The faster reaction times make it very easy to lock on to any targets with the crystal-clear view provided by the Slimline Pro optic.

  • Vest: Gunner
  • Gloves: Commando
  • Boots: Stalker
  • Gear: Mag Holster

To improve your speed and manoeuvrability, we've gone for Commando to let you sprint while reloading, and Stalker to improve your ADS speed and speed while aiming.

Reload time is also a problem with the Bruen Mk9 in Modern Warfare 3, so the Gunner and Mag Holster perks will provide crucial boosts to your reload speed.


  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade

Since the Bruen Mk9 is best used as a suppressive weapon to provide covering fire and lock down contested areas, we've gone for equipment that helps with that objective. A handy Frag Grenade can flush out any enemies behind cover, while the Flash Grenade impairs them while you land the killing blow.

Is the Modern Warfare 3 Bruen Mk9 meta?

It seems unlikely that the Bruen Mk9 will be meta in Modern Warfare 3. As with many other LMGs, it's just a bit too cumbersome and heavy to help out in fast-paced battles.
