Dragunov Best Class Setups & Best Attachments Modern Warfare

This guide goes in-depth and looks at the Dragunov Best Class Setups & Best Attachments in Modern Warfare. We look at the weapon stats such as damage, range, and rate of fire.

The Dragunov is the semi-automatic sniper rifle in the game. It is definitely the worst sniper compared to the HDR or AX50.

However, it does have the advantage of having a much higher fire rate because of its semi-automatic chamber system. 

In this guide we suggest the best attachments to use when running the Dragunov. We also give our 3 best Dragunov class setups to dominate with the sniper.

Weapon background

The Dragunov is a Call of Duty classic. It literally appeared in every COD except Black Ops 3. It is a close cousin to the AK47 Assault Rifle. Both weapons were built during the Soviet Russia era.


  • Damage: 1 shot kill close range
  • Rate of Fire: Semi-Auto
  • Recoil: Low
  • Range: Close to medium range

We can see from the information above that the Dragunov sniper takes out enemies in close range with 1 shot. The weapon will fall off to 2 shots and medium to long-range.

We recommend using the weapon more like a marksman rifle and focus more on close to medium range combat.

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the Dragunov in Modern Warfare are the:

  • 510mm Compact Barrel

These attachments combined really speed up your ADS time. However, the Tac Laser gives away your position so it should only be used when using the weapon in very close range.
