Call of Duty Vanguard’s finest loadout and building STG44 can wreak havoc in multiplayer, creating a versatile attack class that allows you to powerfully overcome any foe in front of you, especially when combined with the right perks, powers, and gear. However, choosing the right STG44 loadout and build is not easy, choose the attachments and priority when creating your build. We’ll go over our thoughts on the best Vanguard STG44 loadout and build for you right here.
Best Vanguard STG44 loadout
Any build forces you to prioritize and deal with aspects of the weapon, but we had the best of luck turning the Vanguard STG44 into a proper rifle, taking it out of its unique form and building Built on damage, accuracy, and range. There’s a bit less SMG in its DNA right now, but it’s a powerful mid-to-long range machine and anything in your sights is likely to lose whatever skirmish you put them in.
The only downside here is that a lot of the attachments involved are high-level ones that you won’t get to for a while. However, STG44s are still quite dangerous without them, and you can increase their power as you go on.
Vanguard STG44 attachments and build
- Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
- Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
- Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
- Magazine: .30 Russian Short 30 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened (or FMJ)
- Optic: G16 2.5x
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
- Stock: VDD 27 Precision
- Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
- Kit: Fully Loaded
The goal here is to build long-distance power, boosting kill times as high as possible while being able to hit enemies at a distance. Its downside is that it interferes with short-range fire rates and ADS, not to mention that the gun is now a bit harder to control in terms of recoil. However, that’s more than just making up for it – it’s a headshot gun that can catch between targets and effectively knock them down with incredible efficiency.
Secondary weapon and loadout
Now that you’ve created your primary killing machine, it’s worth noting what’s around it. As for secondary weapons, you have a lot of options, but a pistol is probably wise to cover short-range battles until you can kill an SMG or shotgun to kill one of them. Try out the Machine Pistol with attachments that emit rate of fire, rapid-fire accuracy, and general spray-based tactics.
For perks, you want to use reliable generic options: Ghost is a must-have, then pair it with Radar – you want to be able to avoid close-up confrontations if possible because So combining stealth with greater awareness will help keep you fighting at a healthy distance. For your third perk, try Scavenger (the Vanguard STG44 tends to chew ammo) or use Overkill and strap a close-range primary weapon to your back, like the MP40 or the Combat Shotgun.
As for gear, just choose your preferred combat-oriented explosive, as you will often be in direct gunfights (this is one of those things that doesn’t matter too much and is actually delicious). Once you’ve got all that set up, you’ll have the STG44 reaching its full potential – and honestly, there’s not much that can compare.
