The PlayStation (Weekend 1) Modern Warfare III Beta is well underway with Xbox and PC (Weekend 2) set to join it within the week. There is already a clear winning when it comes to Meta with the Rival-9 SMG that stands leaps and bounds above the competition. So let's get straight to it.

Best Rival-9 Build

  • Barrel: Rival-38E Fire Starter Barrel

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor

  • Optic: MK. 23 Reflector

  • Magazine: 40 Round Mag

  • Underbarrel: Edge BW-4 Handstop

Adding the Rival-38E Fire Starter Barrel and the Edge BW-4 Handstop will give a boost to movement speed, ADS time and Sprint to Fire speed making this an aggressive, fast moving loadout.

The return of the Monolithic Suppressor means players will remain off the mini-map allowing them to move around fast, but also undetected.

Best Perks & Equipment for Rival-9

  • Vest: Infantry

  • Gloves: Commando

  • Gear: Ghost T/V Camo

  • Boots: Covert

  • Lethal: Semtex

  • Tactical: Flash Grenade

  • Field Equipment: A.C.S

These Perks & Equipment focus on maximizing speed and movement. Infantry Vest will buff Tac Sprint by reducing its cooldown and extending its duration and the Commando Gloves allow you to reload whilst sprinting.
