Modern Warfare 3  is the latest installment in the long list of Call of Duty games we have over the last couple of decades. This latest entry in the series has brought forward several improvements from its predecessor and has also carried forward fan-favorite game modes and other features. This first-person shooter has always impressed us with its arsenal of weapons and the trend seems to continue with this newest title as well.

This guide will specifically focus on one of the most potent marksman rifles in the game which is the MCW 6.8. This gun is deadly at medium range and it can inflict colossal amounts of damage on hostiles. Here’s how you can unlock it during the beta.

Unlocking the MCW 6.8 in Modern Warfare 3 Beta

During the first week of the beta, players were limited with a level cap of 20 but as we enter the second week, this limit has been raised to level 30. As you continue levelling up you will unlock various rewards that the game offers. So if you have your eyes set on the MCW 6.8, you can get access to it as soon as you reach level 25.

If you are struggling to level up you might want to attempt daily challenges, mission objectives, and also team up with friends to secure more wins under your belt, which leads to gaining more XP.

Best Loadouts for the MCW 6.8 in Modern Warfare 3

Once you have gotten your hands on the MCW 6.8, you must equip it with several attachments that will turn it into a beast when it comes to picking mid to long range gunfights. Here’s what you need to add to the rifle:

  • Barrel: Tempus Predator Precision

  • Stock: MCW Lancer Tactical

  • Magazine: 30 Round Mag

  • Rear Grip: RB Talon-X3 grip

  • Optics: Corio Eagleseye 2.5x

These attachments will provide you the best chances while you are picking fights at long ranges, although it loses a bit of its versatility when it comes to medium range. If you are looking for attachments better suited at mid-range combat, add these:

  • Barrel: Orchestra-40 Short Heavy Barrel

  • Stock: MCW Lancer Tactical Stock

  • Magazine: 30 Round Mag

  • Rear Grip: RB Solarflare 35 Grip

  • Optics: KR V4 1X Riser

Apart from equipping Frag and Flash grenades as standard, you can also use secondary accessories like a Gunner vest that will give you an extra slot for a main weapon, which comes in handy considering the fact that your combat scenarios change dynamically, depending on the map.
