What is the best MTZ Interceptor loadout? The MTZ Interceptor is a marksman rifle that excels in mid-to-long-range firefights, capable of eliminating enemies with a single shot. Our best MTZ Interceptor loadout concentrates on reducing gun kick, further increasing the effective range, and giving you a large magazine capacity.
The Modern Warfare 3 release date is here, and there’s no better time to figure out what your favorite MW3 gun is. The marksman rifle class fills an interesting niche within the multiplayer realm; their slow rate of fire doesn’t cope well with close-range encounters, but the staggering power of each semi-automatic shot can dominate the mid-range. Pair our Modern Warfare 3 MTZ Interceptor loadout with one of the best MW3 SMGs and you’ll be unstoppable.
Best Warzone MTZ Interceptor loadout
- Muzzle: T-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
- Barrel: MTZ Longshot Pro Barrel
- Optic: Ares Clear Shot
- Stock: MCW Blackjack
- Magazine: 20 Round Mag
The MTZ Interceptor is incredibly powerful – able to down an enemy with full plates in two shots (three if they’re all body shots). We’ve complemented that damage with attachments that bring the recoil down to near zero, enabling you to let loose and be confident that your shots will hit. The T-7 Spiritfire Suppressor, MTZ Longshot Pro Barrel, and MCW Blackjack are there to stabilize the weapon, bringing the recoil and gun kick right down, while also adding range and bullet velocity into the mix. The Ares Clear Shot is a sight that couples a zoomed optic with a red dot, allowing you to adapt to any combat scenario.
Best Modern Warfare 3 MTZ Interceptor loadout
- Barrel: MTZ Blackthorn Barrel
- Optic: SZ Mini
- Stock: FTAC Heavy Hunter Stock
- Rear Grip: MTZ Factory Rear Grip
- Magazine: 20-Round Mag
With the power of the MTZ Interceptor being as it is, you won’t need many shots to take down an enemy. Therefore, we don’t need to worry too much about recoil, so we’ve added the MTZ Blackthorn Barrel which helps bullet velocity and range. It also has improved aim idle sway, which is perfect for waiting out the perfect shot. We’ve added the MTZ Factory Rear Grip to help with this, too.
The FTAC Heavy Hunter Stock, despite its name, actually lightens the weapon by increasing your movement speed and aim walking speed. Which optic you use, or even whether you want one at all, is pretty much up to personal preference, especially since most have a similar boost to range and accuracy. That said, we recommend the SZ Mini thanks to its small dot, which aids accuracy.
The 20-Round Mag slows the ADS time, but by doubling up your magazine size, you won’t have to reload as much and can help you keep the pressure up in heavy firefights.
Best MW3 MTZ Interceptor perks and equipment
- Lethal: Proximity Mine
- Tactical: Smoke Grenade
- Vest: Overkill vest
- Field Upgrade: Trophy System
- Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves
- Gear: Mission Control Comlink
You’ll find that staying stationary is the key to getting the best out of the MTZ Interceptor. Once you’ve found the perfect spot to pick off freshly spawned enemies, lock down your position with the Proximity Mine and the Trophy System.
The Mission Control Comlink makes it easier to reach your killstreak rewards, and the Quick-Grip Gloves allow for instant switching to your secondary weapon if your enemy gets a little too close for comfort. Speaking of that second weapon, the Overkill vest is essential for pairing the MTZ Interceptor with an SMG, but you can’t equip boots with it.
