The focus of this build is to amplify the recoil control and damage range to fully take advantage of the high firing rate of this weapon.

To start off this loadout, select the ZEHMN35 Compensator Flash Hider, which improves horizontal and vertical recoil while giving a slight boost to firing aim stability. It also provides the added benefit of shortening radar pings.

Next, select the Princeps Long Barrel. This greatly helps with bullet velocity and range, allowing you to be more effective at longer distances.

To further improve recoil control, go with the FTAC MSP-98 Handstop, which provides a small boost to vertical recoil, and increases aim walking speed and movement speed to improve your mobility.

For optic, we recommend choosing the fan favorite MK.3 Reflector or Slate reflector for quicker target acquisition if you don’t like using iron sights.

Finally, the Folding Stock is an excellent choice in this build as it boosts recoil control, gun kick control, and firing stability at a small cost to aim-down-sights (ADS).
