Best Fennec 45 Attachments

Modern Warfare 2 weaponry has been left behind in most cases and players are unsure whether they wish to pick up such old toys, but I’m here to show you one particular weapon that can be unleashed in MW3 and Warzone. The highest fire rate of its class, fast TTK, and surprisingly manageable recoil make the Fennec 45 a good gun from the get-go, but with some choice attachments, we can push it even further beyond!

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Barrel: Fennec Covert Force
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Magazine: 45 Round Magazine
  • Ammunition: .45 Auto Overpressured

We start off the list with the Fennec Covert Force to keep ourselves off the minimap and help with recoil, damage range, and accuracy, this will reduce ADS speeds but we will compensate. We compensate with the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop and the VLK LZR 7MW. The latter increases handling, ADS, and accuracy, while the former further helps ADS, movement speed, and recoil control.

The 45 Round Magazine is an obvious choice for Warzone with the health increases and squad sizes, then we also have the .45 Auto Overpressured for some extra stopping power. All in all, this loadout keeps the Fennec competitive with other SMGs and contends with the WSP Swarm for TTK and fire rate.

Best Fennec 45 Perks

Perks for the Fennec 45 are simply the general perks you should pick up as they offer the best bonuses for all types of play. However, many can be swapped out for your personal preference, but for those looking for a good package, here’s ours.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Temepered
  • Perk 4: High Alert

Faster reload speed can be the difference between life and death, so that’s why we take Sleight of Hand. Swapping to your secondary is always quicker, but what happens when both weapons are out of ammo? The Tempered perk is incredibly cost-efficient in many ways. Firstly, you can plate up to full with two armor plates which is a value increase of 12 – 15%. You can also plate up to full health 33% quicker, which can turn the tides of battle in your favor.

Finally, High Alert is an unsung hero in the new Warzone, offering you information on enemy positions and protecting your life when it matters the most.

With its incredible fire rate, it’s no wonder the Fennec 45 performs well in the chaos of Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer. Whether you are sending wave after wave of bullet fire at your enemy or breaking their ankles with its high mobility, this SMG won’t let you down. Thankfully, the maps introduced in MW3 fit this low-range SMG perfectly and bridge the gap between the META-defining weapons. But to bring this old dog to the new era we need to make some strategic changes.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: XRK Sandstorm
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Magazine: 45 Round Magazine
  • Rear Grip: Fennec Rubber Grip

We start with some much-needed recoil control; the XRK Sandstorm, helping us to control the unruly beast that is the Fennec 45. Next up the best underbarrel attachment for SMGs, the XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop, increases recoil control, ADS speeds, and handling, into the perfect package. Our VLK LZR 7MW laser further helps with accuracy and control while again increasing ADS speeds.

Finally, we have the 45-Round Magazine to keep us chugging out bullets for as long as possible and the Fennec Rubber Grip for one last boost to ADS speeds as the stat is incredibly important in the chaotic MP.

Best Fennec 45 Perks

Perks are now specific pieces of body gear that can be swapped in and out to suit the needs of a Class. Since the Striker is a fast-paced SMG, we want our perks to facilitate that slippery movement.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Scavenger Gloves
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Gear: EOD Padding

Our vest of choice is, of course, the Infantry Vest increasing our Tac Sprint recharge time and duration so we can rotate across the map quicker than our opponents. SMGs are ammo devourers but the Fennec 45 is the most egregious sinner in this case. So we slip on our Scavenger Gloves to keep the snowball rolling and the kills coming. Combat Sneakers removes footstep sound (Dead silence), allowing us to slip in and out of enemy territory without anyone knowing. Finally, EOD padding protects us from grenades, incendiary bullets, and killstreaks.

And there we have it, the best Fennec 45 Loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. Be sure to stick with us at Twinfinite for more Call of Duty related guides, news, and updates!
