When it comes to finding the perfect optic for your loadout in Modern Warfare 3, the search can be overwhelming. While the previous game, Modern Warfare 2, had its share of optics, the Cronen Mini Pro dominated in multiplayer and the Aim-OP V4 ruled Warzone. However, MW3 is upping the ante with a variety of optics to choose from. And with the beta available this weekend exclusively on Playstation, gamers have their first chance to try them out. We’ve tested all the available optics, and we think we’ve found THE one for multiplayer: the MK. 23 Reflector.
Why MK. 23 Reflector?
The MK. 23 Reflector is gorgeous. Not only does it take up very little screen space, but its laser dot is also perfectly sized, making it ideal for precision aiming. As people dive into the MW3 beta and start creating their own setups, we predict that many will discover how clean and efficient this optic is.
How to Unlock the MK. 23 Reflector
Unlocking this optic is incredibly easy, especially in the beta version of MW3. All you have to do is level up the MTZ-556 Assault Rifle to level 2. The MTZ-556 is the first assault rifle you unlock and is a really solid gun to begin with, making the leveling-up process quick and painless.

What to Expect in Warzone
Warzone will adapt to MW3 in December 2023, bringing all the new weapons and attachments. Since visual recoil seems to be low in MW3, higher zoom scopes like the VLK 3.0 and Axial Arms x3 may become meta in the new Warzone map, Urkzistan.
Don’t Miss Out on the MK. 23 Reflector
As the MW3 beta unfolds this weekend, a golden opportunity presents itself for gamers to dive into the plethora of new optics and find their perfect setup. The MK. 23 Reflector stands out among the rest for its clarity, precision, and minimal screen space. As gamers, we’re always on the hunt for those marginal gains that could make the difference between victory and defeat. This optic could very well be that edge you need.
And with Warzone adapting to MW3 in December, the MK. 23 Reflector is not only a strong contender for multiplayer modes but could also become a meta-defining optic in Warzone. Coupled with the low visual recoil in MW3, this optic could finally enable gamers to make full use of higher magnification scopes in Warzone.
