Following on from my Black Ops gun analyses last year, here are analyses for MW3 guns.

Disclaimer - these ratings are all my opinion. They are by no means the definitive analysis for each gun.

Assault RiflesEdit

M16A4Edit

Damage - 45-25

I haven't used this much, but it's basically a general-purpose, 3-round-burst assault rifle. Really not much else to it than that. Main competitor is the Type 95, which is unlocked later on. Nothing really special about this weapon at all.

Rating - 7/10

M4A1Edit

Damage - 42-20

M4A1 is a low-recoil, medium damage weapon. This makes the M4A1 very good at mid-long range encounters, but it falls a bit short in CQB. Overall, a really quite good starting weapon and a good way to be eased into the game.

Rating - 8.5/10

SCAR-LEdit

Damage - 35-20

The SCAR-L has very low recoil, a reasonable fire rate, and reasonable damage. This makes it well-suited to mid-range use, but can be used with success at pretty much any range.

Rating - 8/10

CM901Edit

Damage - 49-25

The CM901 has high damage, low recoil, and a low ROF. This makes it excellent for any range, which allows it to fit any ticket and any role. Out of what I've used so far, the CM901 is one of the best weapons.

Rating - 10/10

Type 95Edit

Damage - 55-20

The Type 95 has stupidly high damage at close quarters which allows it to kill in 2 shots. What's more, it's a 3-round burst weapon, so it's really quite hard to not land a kill at close range, even when hip firing. It also has low recoil which allows it to perform well at long range, even if it becomes significantly weaker damagewise.

Rating - 9.5/10

G36CEdit

Damage - 40-25

The damage of the G36C falls in at a midway for assault rifles, which makes the G36C probably the best assault rifle to fit all roles necessary. It has low recoil, and a fast ROF. Good weapon to use.

Rating - 9/10

ACR 6.8Edit

Damage - 40-30

The ACR 6.8 possesses high damage at long range, has a mediocre ROF, and low recoil. Best at long ranges, but can effectively be used at any range. Very similar to the M4A1, but the lower recoil makes this a better choice.

Rating - 9.5/10

M14Edit

Damage - 75-49

M14's very high damage enables it to serve as pretty much an unscoped sniper rifle with large damage dropoff at range. It has low recoil, and extremely high accuracy. The only problem is the firecap, which is rectified with Rapid Fire. A good gun to use to take a break from all the other automatic assault rifles.

Rating - 8.5/10

AK-47Edit

Damage - 49-25

Analysis from Crazy sam10

The AK47 is a so-so weapon. It's a great CQC powerhouse, but don't even bother going long range unless you feel confident. It needs kick if you want it to go out to further ranges.

Rating - 7/10

FADEdit

Damage - 30-24

Sub machine gunsEdit

MP5Edit

Damage - 42-20

MP5 is a medium damage, quick-firing SMG with medium recoil. As an SMG, it only performs well at short-mid range, and suffers a lot at long range. A good weapon nonetheless due to it's close range prowess.

Rating - 8/10

UMP45Edit

Damage - 49-17

The UMP possesses very high damage at close range, and has a reasonably fast ROF and reasonably low recoil. However, it is pitifully weak at long range, and is extremely ineffective at any range beyond mid-range encounters.

Rating - 7/10

PP90M1Edit

Damage - 42-17

The PP90M1 will kill in the same amount of shots as the UMP45, and has a higher ROF and lower recoil. But it still is very weak at long range, and should not be used out of mid-range combat. In its optimum ranges, it performs very well.

Rating - 8/10

P90Edit

Damage - 42-20

-haven't used this yet-

Rating - N/A

PM-9Edit

Damage - 35-20

Low recoil, high ROF, and good damage for an SMG. The PM-9 remains effective even outside of mid-range.

Rating - 8.5/10

MP7Edit

Damage - 35-20

Sniper RiflesEdit

Barrett .50calEdit

Exactly the same as it is in the previous 2 installments. High recoil, high damage, 10 round magazine.

Rating - 8/10

L118AEdit

Same stats as the Barrett, but bolt-action, so pretty much useless.

Rating - 6/10

DragunovEdit

A very, very weak rifle with a lot of recoil. Does not perform well at any range, due to the high recoil and inability for a 1-shot kill to the chest.

Rating - 5/10

AS50Edit

Similar to the Barrett with lower recoil and smaller magazine. It uses an awkward low-zoom scope that can be a help in closer ranges, but makes the rifle less useful at longer ranges. Still a good weapon to use.

Rating - 7.5/10

RSASSEdit

Same damage as the Dragunov, but with far less recoil, and a larger magazine. When this is used prone, it does not have any noticeable recoil, so it is extremely easy to control chokepoints. Actually a very, very good weapon.

Rating - 9.5/10

MSREdit

Analysis from Crazy sam10

The MSR has good mobility, mid-high recoil, a fast reload, bad penetration, and an average scope time. The MSR also has good damage allowing for frequent one-shot kills.

Rating - 7.5/10
