LMGs are in an odd place in MW3, unable to match the mobility of SMGs nor the versatility of Assault Rifles. That said, if you build to the strength of LMGs, you can do a lot of work with these hefty weapons. Let me show you the best Pulemyot 762 build in MW3: Attachments, loadout, and perks.

Best Pulemyot 762 Attachments in MW3
LMGs favor a less mobile playstyle and one where you can reliably get the drop on your opponents. We can’t match the mobility of smaller weapons, so we build for other attributes instead. These are the attachments I recommend:
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Muzzle: Colossus Suppressor L
- Magazine: 75 Round Belt
- Stock: Ivanov Bluff Heavy Stock
- Barrel: Invoker Light Barrel
I’ve experimented with a few Optics and found I can best keep track of my targets with the Slate Reflector. This Optic has a wide-sight picture and a bright dot reticule.
There’s a case to be made for a magnifying Optic, but I didn’t find I needed one in most cases in multiplayer.
Colossus Suppressor L
I’m usually a fan of the Shadowstrike Suppressors, as there are no stat penalties for using them. The Colossus Suppressor L negatively impacts our ADS speed, but we gain a significant boost to Recoil Control.
Other Attachments in this build fix our ADS issues, and the Recoil Control helps tame this LMG’s brutal kick. If the ADS penalty is a dealbreaker for you, the Shadowstrike is a great alternative, but the increased Recoil is noticeable.
75 Round Belt
The 75 Round Belt drops our magazine size significantly but gives so many buffs it’s well worth it.
This Magazine grants huge buffs to ADS and Sprint to Fire speed, so we don’t immediately lose in a quick gunfight. The ADS Speed buff also offsets the penalty from our Muzzle choice. We also gain bonuses to Reload and Aim Walking speed.
The Magazine size drop from 150 to 75 is a big deal, but 75 rounds should be enough to get the job done in most situations.
Ivanov Bluff Heavy Stock
LMGs are infamous for their brutal kick, and the Ivanov Bluff Heavy Stock helps to tame it. This Stock grants buffs to Gun Kick and Recoil, and we also gain a small bonus to Sprint to Fire speed.
The penalties are minor, as we’re not trying to run around the map with the Pulemyot 762. This Stock makes a huge difference, and you can immediately see the benefits in the Firing Range.
Invoker Light Barrel
I didn’t want to hit the build with more movement penalties for our Barrel attachment, so the Invoker Light Barrel is a perfect choice.
The Invoker boosts ADS, Sprint to Fire, and Movement speed at the cost of Recoil Control. In my testing, the handling penalties aren’t too noticeable, and the weapon still shines at holding lanes and engaging targets across the map.
I know the popular saying in gun builds is, “It fires like a laser!” but after the first few shots, the Pulemyot 762 really feels like one with this attachment combo.
Best secondary, tactical, lethal, and field equipment for Pulemyot 762 build
- Secondary: COR-45
- Tactical: Stun Grenade x2
- Field Upgrade: Comm Scrambler
These are personal preferences, but the COR-45 is a decent sidearm, and the Stuns are among the best tactical grenades in MW3. I swear by the Engineer Vest, which is why I’ve recommended double stuns.
You can employ a less mobile playstyle with the LMG, and the Comm Scrambler is an excellent Field Upgrade to lock down an area. Remember that the Scrambler radius is visible on the map, but your opponents won’t know precisely where you are.
Best Gloves, Boots, Gear, and Vest for the Pulemyot 762 build
- Gloves: Marksman Gloves
- Boots: Stalker Boots
- Gear: Ghost T/V Camo
- Gear: Bone Conduction Headset
- Vest: Engineer Vest
The Marksman Gloves are great in this build as we adopt a slower playstyle and patrol long sight lines.
I’m usually an avid user of the Covert Sneakers, as I love being able to move silently. That said, the Stalker Boots are a good choice if we get into 1v1 battles, as we can strafe faster. I’m typically an aggressive player and go with the Covert Sneakers on every build, but the Stalker Boots are arguably the better choice.
The Ghost T/V camo keeps us off UAVs, which is useful no matter what gun we use. Finally, the Bone Conduction Headset should warn us if an enemy player sneaks into our backline.
LMGs feel slow and sluggish compared to SMGs and Assault Rifles, but they can still hold their own. Problems arise when you try to use an LMG like the smaller weapons, but if you can adjust to the playstyle, there’s a lot of fun to be had with the chunky guns of MW3’s roster.
