The XRK Stalker is one of the newer snipers added to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 and Battle Royale mode, Warzone. And with the right loadout, you can decimate any team, whether it be long to mid-range firefights or CQC in tight spaces. And with it comes the best RAM-7 loadout too. Before we dive into the best XRK Stalker Class and Loadout in MW3. There are a few things you need to know.
You’ll need to unlock a few attachments in the Gunsmith and equip them such as the muzzle, bolt, under-barrel, stock, mag, and grip. The muzzle will ensure that you’re out of the enemy’s radar when taking your position and lining up shots. The grip will help with gun kick control and faster ADS time. While extra mag will serve as a lifeline.
In addition, you’ll need a few extra tactical equipment and gear to make sniping a breeze. The munitions box will help along with a few proximity mines to take out any unexpected visitors.
The XRK RAM-7 Assault Rifle is your backup in the best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3. When the enemies, get up close and personal, the RAM-7 will blow enemies to smithereens. But how do you equip two primary weapons at the same time in MW3? To equip this additional primary weapon, you’ll need the Gunner’s Vest which gives you the Overkill perk for some reason (the in-game description doesn’t list the Overkill Perk for this Vest), allowing you to equip two primary weapons. And that pretty much wraps up the best XRK Sniper Meta for Call of Duty MW3 Season 1.

Best and Fastest XRK Loadout in MW3 – Primary Weapon: XRK Stalker Class Setup
This Class setup is ideal if you’re looking to replace the SP-X 80 and try out something new. To be fair, the XRK Stalker is kind of the new Sniper Meta for MW3 and Warzone. The XRK Stalker can one-shot enemies, owing to its maximum damage. But without digressing any further, let’s get into the fastest and best XRK Stalker Class setup.
Rear Grip: Bruen Lynx Grip Improves ADS For The Best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3
The Bruen Lynx Grip greatly improves flinch resistance and aiming idle sway. While the walking speed is reduced, it’s pretty much mandatory for this setup.
Bolt: XRK Stalker Light Bolt Ramps Up Rechambering Speed for the Best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3
As the XRK Stalker features a slow rechambering speed by default, you’d need to go with the XRK Light Bolt to up the rechambering speed, improve handling, and get tons of follow-up kills.
Stock: Helix LV Light Stock Bumps Up ADS For The Best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3
The Helix LV Light Stock is your best bet for a quick-scope XRK Stalker build, as it dramatically increases your ADS (Aim Down Sight) speed. But the only downside is a smaller impact on the XRK Stalker’s recoil.
Optics: Stock XRK Stalker Optic
For this build, we’re going with the base XRK Stalker Optic to make sure the sniper works as intended for mid-range and long-range shots in your preferred line of sight.
Laser: Schlager PEQ BOX IV
If you have the space for it, go for the Schlager Box IV, but considering you’re going to run out of space, you might as well skip the laser attachment.
Barrel: Stock Barrel
While other barrels may improve ADS, recoil control, and movement speed, you’re better off sticking to the Stock Barrel to get those one-shot kills. Alternatively, you could stick to the SP-X 80 if you’re looking for a faster quick-scope one-shot sniper rifle.
Muzzle: VT-7 SpiritFire Suppressor XL Completes Our Fastest Stalker Loadout in MW3
To make up for the lost recoil control, consider opting for the VT-7 SpiritFire Suppressor XL. It increases your projectile-based bullet velocity as well as range. But takes a minor toll on your ADS Speed. Also, this suppressor prevents you from being located or spotted on the radar.
Magazine: 7-Round Mag
Considering the XRK Stalker class setup is a bit difficult to master, having the 7-Round Mag with 14 rounds in reserve gives you a slight edge if you mess up–in contrast to the base 5-Round Mag with 15 Reserve Rounds. If your accuracy is a tad bit off, the additional 2 rounds could save you in a life-or-death situation in MW3.
Best and Fastest XRK Stalker Class Loadout and Setup in MW3 – Secondary Weapon: RAM-7 Class Loadout
The XRK RAM-7 formerly known as the TAR-21 made a return from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019, and it’s a pretty powerful assault rifle that spits out rounds on the go. With the right setup and attachments, it’s ideal for CQC scenarios. For this loadout, we went with the heat-wave camo. But players are likely going to opt for the RAM-7 Forged Camo, which requires you to kill 10 enemies while aiming down sights (ADS) and sliding.
If you get spotted and enemies come running to your position, you can take them out within a split-second with our fastest RAM-7 Class Setup and Loadout. To make the most of this assault rifle, make sure you’ve unlocked it in the A7 section of the Battle Pass and grinded XP to achieve Level 27.
While most users would go for the WSP Swarm, we’d prefer to opt for the RAM-7 here.
Barrel: XRK Coremark 40 Heavy Barrel
Since you’ll run into enemies in tight spaces mid-match, the XRK Coremark 40 Heavy Barrel will come in handy to improve idle sway, recoil control, and gun-kick control. This will ensure that your shots line up perfectly.
Underbarrel: SL Skeletal Vertical Grip Improves Recoil Control For The Best RAM-7 Class Loadout in MW3
The SL Skeletal Vertical Grip improves ADS, Gun Control, and sprint-to-fire speed, making it a game-changer for CQC.
Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor Keeps You Out of Enemy Sights For the Best RAM-7 Loadout in MW3
For the muzzle, we’re going with the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor for the same reasons as before. It’s undetectable on the radar, improves recoil control, and significantly improves bullet velocity and damage.
Optics: MK.3 Reflector Keeps Things Clean For the Fast and Best RAM-7 Loadout in MW3
Since this is a CQC build for the fastest XRK Stalker Loadout, you’d need a clean optic, such as the MK.3 Reflector, which gives you a clear sight picture and a simple dot reticle in the center.
Stock: HVS 3.4 PAD Wraps Things Up Neatly With Tight Gun Kick Control For The Best RAM-7 Loadout
For the stock, we’re going with the HVS 3.4 PAD. While this might affect your sprint speed, it provides better accuracy, gun-kick control, and better recoil control.
Best XRK Stalker Loadout Class and Setup in MW3: Tactical Equipment
If you’re under fire and wounded and need to flee the scene, the Stim will recover your health, stamina as well as movement speed.
Lethal: Proximity Mine
The Proximity Mine has been around since the dawn of the ancient COD Multiplayer. It’s pretty much needed when you’re holding down a position or outpost on the high ground, taking out unsuspecting enemies in the process.
Field Upgrade: Munitions Box
Considering you’re using the XRK Stalker, paired with the RAM-7, you might run out of ammo on the go. That’s where the munitions box comes into the picture, giving you some well-needed rounds as well as one piece of tactical equipment that you’ve used up.
Best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3: Perks
Vest: Gunner Vest and Overkill Vest
After reaching player level 20, you’ll unlock the Gunner Vest. The Gunner Vest is OP as it gives you the Overkill Perk. It’s kind of surprising because the game doesn’t mention this fact in the Vest’s description.
It’s the quintessential piece of gear to tie the best and fastest XRK Stalker Class Setup and Loadout together.
The Gunner Vest’s Overkill Perk allows you to equip the XRK Stalker and the RAM-7, both of which are primary weapons. As a side bonus, it allows you to hop into a match with max ammo.
Optionally, you could also use the Overkill Vest, which gives you the same set of perks as the Gunner Vest.
Gear: Bone Conduction Headset
While players were complaining about not hearing enemy footsteps in MW2, Sledgehammer introduced the Bone Conduction Headset in MW3. This makes it easier to isolate enemy footsteps and enemy gunshots, that is if your cover gets blown using the Best XRK Stalker Class Setup.
Unfortunately, you need to reach level 24 on the progression track to unlock the Bone Conduction Headset.
Gloves: Quick-Grip Gloves for the Best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3
For the fastest and best XRK Stalker Class and Loadout, the quick-grip gloves are a no-brainer. MW3 is much more fast-paced than ever before. The Quick Grip gloves make swapping between the RAM-7 and the XRK Stalker Sniper a Breeze.
Is The Best XRK Stalker Loadout in MW3 The New Meta?
All-in-all, the XRK Sniper packs quite a punch, especially when dealing with enemies in the medium and long-range line of sight. Aiming Down Sights and quickly, quick-scoping can become a breeze. The damage alone and the XRK’s penetration factor make dealing with enemies hiding behind walls pretty reliable.
With the right equipment, attachments, and secondary weapon, the XRK Stalker Class is pretty much OP and the new Meta in MW3 and Warzone Season 1. But don’t be afraid to tinker around with your class setup and loadouts.
But the XRK Stalker has a few new sniper classes to compete with–we’re talking about the KATT-AMR quickscope meta loadout in MW3 and Warzone. There’s a lot of talk regarding which Sniper Rifle is the best – The XRK Stalker vs the KATT-AMR? Let us know in the comments below.
We’d also recommend the OP Tyr Conversion Aftermarket Kit but the officially named JAK Beholder Rifle kit is currently bugged and doesn’t show up for players(Sledgehammer pls fix). With that said, stay tuned for more guides, updates, the best weapon loadouts, bug fixes, and more MW3 news at EsportsNext.
