Modern Warfare Reflex weapons and perks guide

Don't customize your class until you've read our tips for choosing the best equipment

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex presents a heap of possibilities in its expansive online mode, but it can be difficult to know where to start. The Create-a-Class option unlocks at level 4 %26ndash; here%26rsquo;s our guide to some of the best weapons and perks, and some advice on how to use them.


AK-47

There%26rsquo;s a reason the AK-47 is the world%26rsquo;s most famous gun: balance. It%26rsquo;s powerful and useful at close or long range, making it a good all-round weapon for beginners. Works well with the silencer attachment, too.

G3

Unlocked at level 25, the G3 is worth the wait: it has an outstanding rate of fire. Equip the ACOG or Red Dot sights %26ndash; unlike with other rifles, using these won%26rsquo;t reduce the amount of damage you inflict.

MP5

Available right from the start, this is actually one of the best guns you%26rsquo;ll come across. With a high rate of fire and a negligible amount of recoil, this is a dependable weapon in almost every situation.

AK-74U

Acquired at level 28, this is much more powerful than the MP5, but can be harder to aim as a result. Accuracy worsens when you equip an attachment %26ndash; the best way to counter this is with the Steady Aim perk.

RPD

LMGs can be great %26ndash; they have an incredible firing rate, and they%26rsquo;re great fun %26ndash; but the reload times can be agonising. Sleight of Hand is a must, and Stopping Power is recommended to offset its low power.

M40A3

A highly accurate sniper rifle, even if it%26rsquo;s not the most powerful of the bunch. Use the ACOG scope and the Stopping Power perk and you%26rsquo;ll be practically unstoppable, and every other player on the map will hate your guts.

M21

Unlocked at level 7, this is less impressive than the M40A3, except in one important respect: it%26rsquo;s a semi-automatic. The ability to fire in bursts is handy for players with less confident aim, particularly beginners.


USP .45

This is a starter weapon, but it%26rsquo;s still a great choice of pistol thanks to its large clip size and relatively high power. It works well with a silencer, making this a good back-up weapon for lurking sniper classes.

Desert Eagle

This is much more powerful than the USP, and an undeniably cool pistol to wield. However, it%26rsquo;s not without drawbacks: the Eagle%26rsquo;s quite a loud gun, it%26rsquo;s impossible to fit a silencer, and there%26rsquo;s a massive amount of recoil.
