The Riveter is one of the stronger close range weapons you can equip in Call of Duty MW3 Zombies. However, the shotgun can be even more lethal when you throw on the right loadout of attachments.

To see the best loadout for the Riveter in MW3 Zombies, keep reading my guide below.

Two primary stats are buffed with this loadout: damage range and mobility. For mobility purposes, I have equipped the FSS OLE-V Laser and the Demo D50 Buffer Tube stock. Both of these attachments increase aim down sights speed and sprint-to-fire time without compromising too much else. Your movement speed is also slightly boosted, allowing you to escape some zombie hits.

As for damage range, the SA Draven-20 Long Barrel and .410 Gauge Ball ammunition provide all the help you’ll need. The Gauge Ball ammunition does mean you need to be a little more precise with your shots, though. Finally, the 30 Round Mag rounds out the loadout, giving you access to 60 bullets in each magazine once you Pack-A-Punch the Riveter.

Best Class Setup for the Riveter in MW3 Zombies

Your class isn’t complete until you equip a secondary weapon slot, equipment, and Field Upgrade, so use my recommendations alongside your Riveter loadout.

And with that, you have completed your class for the Riveter in MW3 Zombies. The shotgun has a fantastic loadout and can kill just about any zombie in the blink of eye once you start to upgrade it.
