What is the best Modern Warfare 3 FTAC Recon loadout?

  • Perks: Overkill / Assault / Lightweight / Hijacked IFF Strobe
  • Grenades: Frag / Smoke

Best Modern Warfare 3 FTAC Recon attachments

The gunsmith contains all kinds of different attachments that will enhance the performance of the FTAC Recon. After numerous tests, we've found five that are guaranteed to make an impact:

  • Barrel: Bull Rider 16.5"
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Demo Precision Elite Factory
  • Underbarrel: Chewk Angled Grip
  • Rear Grip: XTEN Grip

The FTAC Recon excels in mid-range combat which is why we've gone with the Bull Rider 16.5" barrel to improve bullet velocity and range alongside recoil control. For even more control, the pairing of the Demo Precision Elite Factory stock and Chewk Angled Grip make the rifle extremely easy to control when attempting to score those tricky longshots.

Up next is the XTEN Grip for reductions to sprint-to-fire time and aim-down sight speed. Although the FTAC Recon isn't the lightest of weapons, the faster reaction times make all the difference.

Best Modern Warfare 3 FTAC Recon perks and equipment

Perks

  • Vest: Overkill
  • Gloves: Assault
  • Boots: Lightweight
  • Gear: Hijacked IFF Strobe

Since the FTAC Recon is a great mid-range weapon, we feel that the Overkill Vest would be a great fit for the gun. Faster weapon mobility and being able to reload while running will make these mid-range rifle attacks far more effective.

We chose Assault Gloves to go with the FTAC Recon so that players can run and jump to their target quickly. Once again, this is a mid-range gun and it will be better if players can get closer to their enemy before pulling the trigger.

Lastly, the Lightweight Boots are so players can run quicker and get to their enemies faster,

Equipment

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

Players won’t have to think too out of the box with a gun like the FTAC Recon. Since it specializes in mid-range attacks, easy kills with the Frag Grenade and distractions with the Smoke Grenade should make for a fun combo.

Is the Modern Warfare 3 FTAC Recon meta?

Since the Modern Warfare 3 FTAC Recon is a mid-range weapon, we think only the hardcore fans will go for this. Multiplayer makes it really easy to get shot up, so players who can get closer and deal damage with the FTAC would be really impressive.
