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

Starting off the best Sidewinder loadout MW3 with the muzzle, he goes with the Rattleback Deadeye 16″ Barrel. This muzzle gives a big boost to gun kick control and recoil control along with bullet velocity and rage and aiming idle sway.

Moving to the underbarrel, he chooses the Kimura Ryn-03 Vertical Grip. Double increase to the gun kick and vertical recoil control is the main reason for the selection along wit hthe aiming idle sway and firing aim stability it provides.

For the optic, Paradox goes for the Slate Reflector due, but says it’s all about preference.

The RB Regal Heavy Stock is slotted into the Stock slot. This attachment provides large improvements to aiming idle sway, gun kick control, firing aim stability, and even a little aim-down-sight speed bump.

And lastly, he puts on the RB Borealis Grip in the rear grip slot for the increase to firing aim stability, along with gun kick and recoil control.
