Modern Warfare 3 Steady Aim Perk Guide
In this Modern Warfare 3 Steady Aim perk guide, we will be discussing
everything you need to know about this perk, including how to unlock it, what it and the pro version do, and
the best builds and strategies for using this perk.
Modern Warfare 3 Steady Aim Perk - How to Unlock & Function
The Steady Aim perk occupies Perk Slot 3 and is unlocked in multiplayer by reaching level 30. This particular
perk makes firing from the hip more accurate.
The pro version of the perk is unlocked by getting 80 kills while shooting from the hip with Steady Aim active.
The pro version allows you to shoot faster after sprinting.
Note that being able to use your weapon again after using equipment or grenades is part of Quickdraw Pro, not
Steady Aim Pro.
Modern Warfare 3 Steady Aim Perk - Best Builds and Strategies
Naturally, Steady Aim is a great perk for anyone working on a hip-fire build. This would be a build that was
something like dual-wielding machine pistols (Akimbo) or using a silenced Sub Machine Gun along with Steady Aim and
This helps you keep off the map so you can sprint around and when you encounter players in head to head fights,
you can strafe them and shoot from the hip. You also sneak up on a lot of players this way.
Steady Aim Pro also synergizes well with Quickdraw Pro. If you happen to run into an enemy when sprinting,
usually if that enemy is any good they are going to take you out. Steady Aim Pro lets you pull your gun out faster,
and Quickdraw allows you to aim faster.
Combined, these can save you a lot of time and actually allow you to defeat lesser-skilled players that you
might happen to bump into when sprinting.
In essence, any class that uses Quickdraw (which is a lot of them) can get a lot of use out of Steady Aim. An
example of this would be a Type 95 class (one of the most popular Assault Rifles in-game) consisting of Sleight of
Hand (or Scavenger) with Quickdraw and Steady Aim pro.
The build mentioned above is a great class for players of mid-high skill levels who can make the most out of the
extra second they are afforded with Steady Aim Pro and Quickdraw.
Steady Aim also really does help steady bigger guns when fired from the hip at close combat, such as Assault
Rifles and even Sniper Rifles. The Type 95 really does well with Steady Aim equipped and is like a mini-shotgun, as
a direct hit from its 3-round burst takes down an opponent in one hit.
Finally, you should use Steady Aim if you want to Akimbo (i.e. dual wield) Machine Pistols. These can be used as
a secondary on any Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, or LMG and essentially are as powerful as a shotgun.
Modern Warfare 3 Steady Aim Conclusion
For most people, Steady Aim should be your perk of choice for Perk Slot 3, especially if you are using Quickdraw
in Perk Slot 2, as these two synergize very well.
Builds focused on shooting from the hip need to use Steady Aim every time. On the other hand, Stalker is a great
perk, especially since it can increase your strafing speed, so it is definitely a tough decision you will have to
make between these two perks for non-hipfire builds.
For these builds, I recommend using Steady Aim if you are using Quickdraw. Without Quickdraw, I really do not
see a choice but to go with Stalker. Otherwise, you will put yourself at a severe disadvantage against other
Assault Rifle users who are working with either Quickdraw or Stalker.
