COD MW3 is a popular shooting game that many players expect. To get a better gaming experience in this game, we should know about it. The following article will give you a detailed introduction to all the gears in COD MW3, which will help you make a better game strategy.



The vests are one of the main components of how your gameplay is approached, so they are a very important aspect of your setup. There are six vests in total, each with their unique benefits:

  • Infantry Vest: Gives you three equipment slots of tactical lethal in your field upgrade and three gear slots of gloves, boots, and gear. It increases the tax sprint duration and reduces your refresh time for that.
  • Engineer Vest: Gives you two tactics and a field upgrade spot, but no lethal. You also get four gear slots with gloves, boots, and two gears. Spots enemy equipment, field upgrades, and kill streaks through walls. Aiming down sights highlights them for the team. Faster field upgrade recharge is also a bonus for that.
  • Gunner Vest: Gives you three equipment slots, two primary weapons, your tactical, your lethal, and your field upgrade, but no secondary. You also only get two gear slots, so just gloves and gear. This lets you play with max ammo and improved reload speed. Duplicate effects don't stack, though; if equipped with the running sneakers with your boots, you gain the effects of lightweights. You can mix and match things to get bonuses, but certain bonuses will not stack there.
  • Demolition Vest: Gives you four equipment slots, one tactical, two lethal, and a field upgrade. You also get your standard gloves, boots, and gear with this. This allows you to resupply lethal and tactical equipment every 25 seconds.
  • CCT Comms Vest: Gives you one equipment slot, and that's just the field upgrade; no tactical and lethal here. But you get four gear slots, two gear, boots, and gloves. This increases the duration enemies stay on the radar and zooms out the radar for you and nearby allies. Enemies you kill drop Intel packs to generate a ping on the radar for you and nearby allies. So it's like a mini UAV. If you equip this with a Data Jacker as a gear, you gain the effects of the Mission Control Commlink.
  • Overkill Vest: Gives you two equipment slots, tactical and lethal, but no field upgrade. You get three gear slots for your gloves, boots, and gear. This allows you to have increased weapon swap speed reload while sprinting. If equipped with the Quick Grip or Commando gloves, you get the effect of marksman gloves.

  • Climbing Boots: Increase climbing and mantling speed and reduce fall damage.
  • Running Sneakers: Increase the tax sprint duration and reduce the refresh time.

  • Threat Identification System: Allows you to, while aiming down sights, automatically ping enemy locations in your crosshairs.
  • Data Jacker: Enemies you kill drop a smartphone. Collecting the smartphone generates a radar ping.

  • Hijacked IFF Strobe: Makes you undetectable by AI targeting systems and does not highlight in enemy tactical cameras or Recon drones, so it's cold-blooded.

All base camos are shared on MW2 and MW3 guns, except for the completionist camos, which are specific to their game's weapons. There are also Mastery challenges and Mastery camos for MW3 multiplayer. To get these camouflages, we can use COD MW3 CP to buy them directly, which will help us build a unique character in the game.
