Old-generation weapons from MW2 are making a resurgence in the new Warzone and Modern Warfare 3. While some players are enamored by the brand-new weaponry, some are looking back to older firepower for the next META definer. The SMG we’re looking at right now is the VEL 46 and its best loadouts.

Best VEL 46 Attachments

Players may remember the VEL 46’s reign during Warzone 2 as it dominated most lobbies thanks to its extremely fast fire rate, high damage, and supreme mobility. This may not be a surprise but the VEL 46 is still a complete monster in Urzikstan. Don’t let this META-defining SMG gather dust on your shelf.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Barrel: Schlager RV-B
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop
  • Magazine: 50 Round Magazine
  • Laser:VLK LZR 7MW
  • Rear Grip: ZLR Combat Grip

Since we need to squeeze out as much damage as possible we first slip on the Schlager RV-B barrel for better range and bullet velocity. The XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop is an obvious next choice giving us some stability improvements while offering some good handling improvements. To continue that trend we also use the VLK LZR 7MW laser for the best mobility we can get out of the VEL 46.

Finally, we have the 50-Round Magazine that has enough ammunition spare to take down an entire enemy squad and the ZLR Combat Grip for some final touches on stability.

Best VEL 46 Perks

For perks, we list generic ones that can be switched in and out to your preferences. But for those looking for a good all-rounder perk package, then look no further.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: High Alert

For our perk slots 1 and 2, we use Battle Hardened and Double Time, they are almost a must-have pair. Battle Hardened protects you from the constant flashbang or concussion spam that Warzone players are adapting to. Double Time increases your Tac Sprint duration and recharge time so you can traverse Urzikstan with some safety.

We prefer Tempered in slot 3 as it gives us a faster plating time, utilizes more efficient plates, and frees up some backpack space for grenades, flashes, or other gadgets. As our last perk, we use High Alert as an option to give you much-needed information and save your life from unwanted sniper fire.

Best VEL 46 Attachments

The VEL 46 fits into MW3 as neatly as the WSP Swarm, overwhelming opponents with enormous bullet fire and fast mobility. Its recoil is almost nonexistent but with some changes can be a little unruly. The beauty of the VEL 46 is that it can be built in many ways, focusing on stability and recoil control, or mobility and handling, it’s the perfect weapon for new and old players alike.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: HMRES Mod Suppressor
  • Barrel: Lach-DX 203MM
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Rear Grip: ZLR Combat Grip
  • Stock: VEL A-568 Collapsed

Keeping ourselves off the minimap in MW3 is a very important factor, so we use the HMRES Mod Suppressor, which rewards us with better bullet velocity for longer-ranged fights. The Lach-DX 203MM is similar increasing our range, damage, and recoil control. For some mobility improvements, we have the DR-6 Handstop and VEL A-568 Collapsed Stock for unparalleled movement speed and ADS speeds.

Finally, the ZLR Combat Grip makes its return to combat some of the recoil that we’ve added to the VEL 46.

Best VEL 46 Perks

we have pieces of body armor that grant unique bonuses just like perks. The VEL 46 needs to be paired up with mobility perks that will facilitate its gameplan.

The best Perks are as follows:

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

The Infantry Vest is one of the best you can get, increasing your Tac Sprint duration and recharge time for quicker movement through the maps. Our Commando Gloves ensure that we stay on our feet even when reloading; the unique ability of these particular gloves. Combat Sneakers, meanwhile, remove the footstep audio (Dead Silence), allowing you to catch enemies off-guard as you full sprint your way into their spawn.

To top it all off, we have EOD padding that will keep you safe from stray frag grenades or the firepower of killstreaks that threaten to end your streak randomly.

And there you have it. That’s the best VEL 46 loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. Be sure to stick with us at Twinfinite as we continue to cover all the latest developments surrounding the Call of Duty franchise.

I love almost every type of video game, and when I'm not playing them, I'm writing about them... a lot. I have too many favorites to list so feel free to ask about them! Long live Ugly Sonic and the Resident Evil 3 Remake (this is a meme btw).
