Here’s our recommendation for the best STG44 you can use in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone:

Attachments for STG44 loadout Warzone and MW3

  • Muzzle: Casus Brake
  • Barrel: Heinrichter C70
  • Optic: Jak Glassless
  • Stock: DR79 Combo Stock
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

The STG44 is a powerful assault rifle that exhibits a controllable recoil pattern with hard-hitting shots and clear iron sights. To further enhance the weapon’s performance, we’ve decided to add handling and mobility improvements to create a snappy mid-range weapon.

We kicked off our STG44 class setup with the Casus Brake, which a muzzle attachment that is is known for its effectiveness in reducing recoil. Although it offers excellent recoil control, it may have a drawback regarding increased visibility on enemy radars.

To further improve the weapon’s range, we’ve decided to use a Heinrichter C70 attachment for the barrel slot, making the firearm more effective for distant fights. Thankfully, it also takes care of the other crucial aspects such as bullet velocity.

You should also keep in mind that STG44 has a lot of visual recoil, which is why we strongly recommend avoiding the use of the iron sight. Instead, you can use an optic attachment such as Jak Glassless to gain a clear line of sight and reduce the visual recoil.

Finally, the DR79 Combo Stock brings down the overall horizontal and vertical recoil of the weapon, making it easier for you to control its recoil, especially during continuous fire.

The best part is it also improves the mobility, meaning you can have much better movement speed when this attachment is equipped.
