Best TR-76 Geist Loadout in Warzone & Modern Warfare 3

The TAR-21 is back!

The TAR-21 was reintroduced as the TR-76 Geist in MW2 right before the release of MW3 and yet this Assault Rifle is not ready to bow out like some of the other gen weapons.

Best TR-76 Geist Attachments

At first glance the TR-76’s fire rate is somewhat of a hindrance as it impacts recoil control quite heavily, however, thanks to some of the new attachments introduced in MW3 we are confident we can eliminate many of this AR’s weaknesses and build on its strengths. With the correct gadgets we can match all the best Assault Rifles this season.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85
  • Barrel: Bruen Bridle Heavy
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Rear Grip: STIP-66 Grip
  • Magazine: 45 Round Magazine

On our first step to nullifying the TR-76 Geist’s recoil, we have the Lockshot KT85 that reduces vertical, horizontal, and gun kick a drastic amount. To continue the trend we have the Bruen Heavy Support Grip and STIP-66 Grip for a trifecta of attachments to help control and reduce the recoil of this assault rifle.

Our barrel of choice is the Bruen Bridle Heavy for its giant increase of damage and range, so that you’re able to take down enemy squads regardless of range. Finally, the 45-round magazine is a must-have for Warzone and the increased health system. Together, the TR-76 will look and feel like an MW3 weapon.

Best TR-76 Geist Perks

Our perks are recommended for Warzone in general and are mostly irrelevant to the weapon you’re using. Here we detail our all-around perk package for any player.

The best perks are as follows:

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

Sleight of Hand’s faster reload has saved my life countless times, now it has entered Warzone’s META and I can confirm it’s a fantastic pick for those rocking snipers or sluggish secondaries. A must-have perk for Warzone is Double Time, there is no justification to now run this passive in the BR environment.

Tempered offers us a unique ability to plate up 33% quicker than opponents while needing almost 33% fewer plates than any other squad. You’ll find so much more bag space for other gadgets like smokes or grenades. Finally, High Alert is a wonderful pick as it can simultaneously save your life and give you much-needed information on enemy positions.

Best TR-76 Geist Attachments

The craziness of MW3’s multiplayer can only be joined and not controlled, for the TR-76 Geist to compete with that environment, we need to lean into mobility. Whether it’s the close quarters maps or the game modes, you’ll need to be on your feet and ready for every fight.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: Bore 490
  • Barrel: LOC.2 Short Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Pivot Vertical Grip
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Rear Grip: Tactical Grip Tape

The Geist is known for its strong recoil so we stick on the Bore 490 to mitigate that annoying shake as much as possible. The LOC.2 Short Barrel and Tactical Grip Tape bring the AR into the MW3 META of fast-paced chaos. Our Bruen Pivot Vertical Grip helps with more recoil control and stability so our shots aren’t uncontrollably hitting the ceiling.

Finally, we all want a clean optic so our choice is the Slate Reflector but feel free to swap in your own if you have a preferred sight.

Best TR-76 Geist Perks

Perks are the cherry on top of a loadout, you’re guns are sorted, your equipment is primed and ready, and all you need now is to select passive abilities to help you achieve a certain game plan.

The best Perks are as follows:

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

The best Vest right now is undoubtedly the Infantry Vest, it offers faster Tac Sprint duration and recharge so you can blitz your way through the maps like an unstoppable force. Commando Gloves allow us to reload while running and can help us reposition and escape certain gunfights.

Covert Sneakers remove combat noise for sneaky plays and EOD Padding protects you from random grenades or killstreaks heading your way.
