Looking for the best MW3 Ranked Play sniper rifle class? We have the elite loadout that can one-shot enemies in the competitive playlist.

Fans were disappointed when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launched without Ranked Play back in November. Without the mode, players have been stuck playing pubs as they eagerly await their turn to play Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, and Control under the CDL ruleset. Now, over two months later, the time has finally come—Ranked Play is headlining MW3 Season 1 Reloaded.

As fans begin their climb from Bronze to the Top 250, they will need the best classes for every meta weapon in MW3, including the S-Tier Rival 9 SMG and MCW Assault Rifle. Plus, those looking to run a sniper will need a third class, perfect for Search & Destroy.

Will Snipers be in MW3 Ranked Play?

Yes, snipers will likely be in MW3 Ranked Play. Although they were GA'ed by the professional Call of Duty players, and therefore not featured in the CDL, you will still be able to run one in Ranked Play.
Of course, you will only want to pull out a sniper in Search & Destroy, not in Hardpoint and Control.

What is the Best Sniper in MW3 Ranked Play?

The best sniper in MW3 Ranked Play is the KATT-AMR Sniper Rifle. If you have played a lot of Call of Duty: Warzone throughout Season 1, then you will be quite familiar with the OP weapon. With the right attachments, the KATT-AMR can one-shot an enemy in both multiplayer and Battle Royale.
