This particular Rival 9 build is especially dominant on the map Shipment. A smaller map like that is perfect for an SMG like the Rival 9.

Paradox pairs the Rival 9 with the Renetti Akimbo as his secondary, and loads out the class with the most optimal equipment to get the job done.

Starting off the best Rival 9 loadout MW3 with the muzzle, he goes with the Monolithic Suppressor S. This muzzle makes the user undetectable by radar and gives a nice double boost to recoil control.

Moving to the underbarrel, he chooses the DR-6 Handstop. This attachment gives a double increase to aim walking speed and aim-down-sight speed in addition to a smaller bump tp sprint-to-fire, and movement speed.

The MTZ Marauder is slotted into the stock slot. This attachment provides large improvements to gun kick control, aiming idle sway, and firing aim stability.

He loads the weapon up with a 40 round mag for the 10 extra bullets, allowing you to get just one or two more eliminations in before reloading.
