What is the best MW3 Cor 45 loadout? This pistol appeared at first glance to be locked during the Modern Warfare 3 beta, but we’ve discovered a handy little trick so you can equip and use it to double-tap opponents.

With the Modern Warfare 3 release date finally upon us, we’ve uncovered the best MW3 loadouts for the current meta. With the Modern Warfare 3 Cor 45, we’ve been two-shotting enemies much to their surprise – and ours.

The Gunsmith preview of the best Cor-45 loadout in Modern Warfare 3.

Best Modern Warfare 3 Cor 45 loadout

  • Aftermarket Parts: XRK IP-V2 Conversion Kit
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: FTAC RS-9 Stealth Angled Grip
  • Laser: KR HX-15 Laser Light
  • Ammo: .45 Auto AET Rounds

The conversion kit is the most important part of a handgun loadout, almost turning the pistol into an SMG with a massive increase to fire rate, bullet velocity, and damage range. This comes at a sacrifice to aim down sight (ADS) speed, but it’s worth it for it’s quick TTK. The FTAC RS-9 Stealth grip is then the best choice to add to prevent a further hit to ADS, while improving accuracy.

This muzzle does further impact ADS speed, but it’s another necessary evil for the sake of its increased recoil control and, most importantly, its suppression. While the laser might give you away, at least the suppression prevents you from being spotted by radar, so you’re less likely to be caught off guard.

The laser light might make you visible to enemies, but with the speed and damage in this Cor-45 loadout, it shouldn’t matter too much – especially with those .45 Auto AET Rounds further increasing damage. With Quick Grip gloves, this is likely to be your secondary weapon, and you can pull it out when you’re in a tricky close-combat situation, meaning the laser is rarely seen.

Best MW3 Cor 45 perks and equipment

  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Deployable Cover
  • Vest: Demolition Vest
  • Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Lightweight Boots
  • Gear: Bone Conduction Headset

As this is your secondary weapon, the Demolition Vest is the best choice here, enabling you to carry at least one of everything else. You also need to think about which primary weapons pair well with this lightweight pistol. We recommend the MW3 MCW loadout as a great choice, as the class setup is built to be extra speedy and mobile, suiting the Cor 45 loadout perfectly. The Quick-Grip gloves then allow you to switch between the two seamlessly.

Since you’re going to be using this at close-range while you’re navigating the map, the Bone Conduction Headset is a great partner for this loadout as it will help you hear nearby opponents before they hear (or see) you. The Deployable cover is a great way to draw enemies in closer.

This somewhat underused, very underestimated MW3 Cor 45 loadout will change your approach in battles, especially in the tighter MW3 maps such as Rust, where you need to be able to react fast and deal damage quickly. If a snappy pistol isn’t quite your thing, try the best MW3 MTZ 762 loadout, or look at what we’ve discovered are the best MW3 assault rifles in the game overall.
