January 3, 2024: Season 1 is in full swing and we've updated the best SVA 545 loadout along with the strongest attachments.

The best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 loadout is bound to turn a few heads as players continue to hunt for the very best weaponry to use in Sledgehammer Games' latest release.

Modern Warfare 3 contains an extensive range of assault rifles (AR) to choose from. With many sharing similar characteristics, determining whether the SVA 545 is capable of slotting in amongst the best guns and weapons can prove tricky. However, with a strong combination of attachments equipped, it can shred through the opposition with ease before Season 1 reaches the halfway stage.

Before we take a closer look at the best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 loadout, check out our other guides revealing how to slide cancel and the selection of maps available in multiplayer.

What is the best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 loadout?

Although this build only provides a slight improvement to damage output, the main focus is to transform the SVA 545 into a laser beam armed with minimal recoil.

There's just enough kick without any attachments for it to become hugely frustrating during matches, so this combination manages to tame any recoil that could distract you from the target.

Best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 attachments

The gunsmith contains a huge variety of different attachments that are perfect for optimising the best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 loadout to suit any style of play. But, after discovering a set of five that's perfect for mid-range combat, we ended up topping the scoreboard on a regular basis. Here's the full attachment list:

  • Barrel: Incursion XII Long Barrel
  • Optic: MK. 23 Reflector
  • Stock: Mane V6 Stock
  • Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip

The main focus of this set of attachments is to create minimal recoil and enough range where the SVA 545 can compete in all mid-range and long-distance gunfights. The Incursion XII Long Barrel kicks things off with initial recoil control and a slight boost to bullet velocity and damage range.

Up next is the MK. 23 Reflector optic, which is perfect for focusing on the target. Continuing the recoil reduction are the Mane V6 Stock, the Demo-X2 Grip, and the Bruen Heavy Support Grip.

All of the recoil control may seem excessive but when you're attempting to hit the head of a faraway opponent, it makes all the difference.

Best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 perks and equipment

The next step to building the best Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 is to select the perks, equipment, and field equipment that complements the AR. Here are our recommendations.


  • Vest: Infantry
  • Gloves: Commando
  • Boots: Stalker
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Field Equipment: Trophy System

Infantry is arguably the best vest to select in Modern Warfare 3 thanks to the increased Tactical Sprint duration and refresh rate it provides. Commando gloves grant you the ability to reload while sprinting around the map, while Stalker boots improve strafing and aim-down sight speed, which is excellent for outplaying any enemies with some jinks to the left and right while firing the rifle.

Lastly, EOD Padding rounds off our perk choices. Grenades are bound to land near you while capturing an objective, and the increased resistance allows you to stay in the fight for longer.


  • Lethal: Breacher Drone
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade

The Breacher Drone explodes in close proximity to an opponent, perfect for clearing a heavily populated area of the map or a group of enemies attempting to capture an objective.

It's hard to go wrong with a Flash Grenade unless you hit yourself with it! Throw it around a corner to see if anyone is waiting for you to make a play, or to blind anyone who's managed to spot you.

Is the Modern Warfare 3 SVA 545 meta?

It's hard to tell whether the SVA 545 can slot into the early Modern Warfare 3 meta. Although the laser-like recoil is useful, it feels like you need to put a lot of rounds into the target to secure the kill. It's a fun weapon to use but there are better ones available.
