The LM-S weapon as seen in Modern Warfare 2

The LM-S is a gun that's fairly new to the Call of Duty games, but the marksman rifle has clearly made a splash. In this guide, we'll go over the best Modern Warfare 3 LM-S loadout.

Based on the real-life Heckler and Koch PSG1, the LM-S rewards accuracy with its decent damage. It's good at long and medium range, making it a good choice for players who prefer to stay back and have steady aim.

Before we get into the loadout guide, find out which marksman rifle is the best in the game. We can also recommend a great loadout for the Riveter, and have plenty more on offer in our Modern Warfare 3 walkthrough hub.

What is the best Modern Warfare 3 LM-S loadout?

Modern Warfare 3 isn't out yet, so we couldn't possibly say what would work best with the LM-S. Marksman rifles almost always function best with a scope, though, and a reduced recoil will help land successive shots.

We can't do much more than speculate right now, though, so will update this guide after using the gun in-game.

Best Modern Warfare 3 LM-S attachments

It's not long now until the game launches, so you'll need to wait just a little longer before we can share the best LM-S attachments in Modern Warfare 3. If we were to speculate, we would say that a marksman rifle like the LM-S will perform better with a scope with a decent range rating and a sturdy grip would dull some of the weapon's recoil.

Best Modern Warfare 3 LM-S perks and equipment

If you want to be at the top of the scoreboard consistently, you'll need some good perks and equipment. We've browsed the list of everything currently in the game and shared options that work best with the LM-S below.


  • Vest: Engineer
  • Gloves: Marksman
  • Boots: Covert sneakers
  • Gear: Ghost T/V camo

The engineer perk best fills the vest slot. Aiming down your sights at enemies will mark them for teammates, field equipment recharges faster, and enemy equipment/killstreaks can be seen through walls.

A fairly obvious choice, the gloves slot is best suited to the marksman perk. It reduces your sway and flinch while aiming down sights, especially useful with a marksman rifle like the LM-S.

You're sure to get more kills if enemies are unaware of you, making the boots' best option the covert sneakers. These make your footsteps silent, letting you get into a position with enemies none the wiser.

Finally, the gear slot. There are plenty of options, but the ghost T/V camo is best for sneaky players. It conceals your location from enemy UAVs, radar sources, and heartbeat sensors; enemies won't know where you are until they're in the crosshairs.


  • Lethal: Claymore
  • Tactical: Flash grenade

Marksman rifle users are most effective when rooted into one high-up spot, and covering your flanks is vital. This is where the claymore comes in handy, as it will kill any enemies trying to rush your blind spots.

The flash grenade is well suited to players that roam and even those that stay in one place. Using it will disorient a nearby enemy and slow them down, letting you line up an easy headshot.

Is the Modern Warfare 3 LM-S meta?

The meta is constantly shifting and difficult to predict, especially before launch. If accuracy ends up being the deciding factor in most gunfights, the LM-S' high damage per shot will definitely make it a popular choice.

That's everything you need to know to get ahead with the LM-S in Modern Warfare 3. While you're here, get the latest intel on loadouts for the Haymaker, Gutter Knife, and Lachmann 762.
