Barebones Kills in MW3 might be hard to come by, if you’re used to kitting your weapons out with top-of-the-line attachments.

There are loads of kill-types and challenges that require them in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. One of them you'll come across in hopes of unlocking more gear in MW3 is Barebones Kills.

Simply put, a Barebones Kill in MW3 is one you earn with a gun that has zero attachments. Nothing can be added to the weapon, and once you get a kill with it, you'll have a Barebones Kill added to whatever tally you've got going.

Now that we have answered the "what," let's go over the "how." It can be simple, but also difficult depending on the weapon and the circumstances where the Barebones Kills are needed in MW3.

Easily enough, you just need to make a loadout where the primary weapon is without a single attachment. From there, you dive into a multiplayer game and start using that weapon.

Here are some tips on how to get these kills without the extra help attachments deliver:

  • Camp. It is a legitimate strategy and the best way for you to catch opponents off guard for a Barebones Kill in MW3.
  • Play the objectives as you normally would. Enemies will surely be there for you to pick off.
  • Utilize equipment such as grenades, stuns, and flashbangs. These can soften up the opposition for you to take them out.
  • Play longer or larger game modes, like Domination or Ground War. A certain kill threshold won't end the game, so you've got plenty of time to get yours.

Good luck, and stay tuned to esports.gg for more esports news and Call of Duty coverage.
