The DM56 is an accurate and lethal marksman rifle in Call of Duty MW3 Zombies, but it needs the right loadout to be effective against the undead.

The DM56 has high damage and low recoil by default, but there are ways to increase both of those stats to make the marksman rifle even stronger. However, increasing those stats comes at the cost of mobility, so we’ll have to address that stat as well. You’ll also want to ensure you have the largest magazine possible so you can kill as many zombies as you need to before reloading.

The loadout begins with the Chrios-6 Match barrel, which boosts aim down sights speed and sprint-to-fire time so you can get your gun up quicker. Then, the Holger Recoil Pad comes into play to improve recoil control and gun kick control. However, you do lose some recoil by using the 5.56 NATO High Grain Rounds, but you gain extra damage range in exchange. The final two attachments on the loadout are the 40 Round Mag and the classic Corio Eagleseye 2.5x optic. If you Pack-A-Punch the DM56, you gain access to 80 bullets in each magazine.
