takes us back to the times of the Second World War, where the action of the first parts of the series took place. In addition to the single player campaign, the game has multiplayer and battles with hordes of zombies. In this guide, we’ll share the best weapons for these modes.
As is often the case, it will not work to call one particular weapon the best – a lot depends on the situation on the battlefield and your tactics. As part of this article, we will tell you about the most effective firearm for different distances. Note that the balance may change over time, as patches and additions will be released for the game. They will add new rifles to Call of Duty: Vanguard and may slightly change the characteristics of existing weapons.
In addition, the effectiveness of rifles and machine guns directly depends on the installed modules. We will tell you more about them in the description of the weapon.
Best Submachine Gun in Call of Duty: Vanguard – MP-40
Submachine guns are suitable primarily for players who prefer to be constantly on the move. The high damage combined with the rate of fire makes the MP-40 one of the best weapons at close to medium range.
The most effective modules for the MP-40:
- Silencer M1929… It increases accuracy and reduces the sound of shots, so you won’t show up on enemy radars.
- Handle “Carver”… It reduces recoil and increases accuracy when shooting without aiming.
- 317-mm barrel “Krausnik” 04B… This module increases accuracy, reduces sight fluctuations and weapon sway.
- Drum magazine for 64 rounds… This is the maximum magazine size for this weapon.
- Shrapnel ammunition… Your shots at the legs of enemy players will make it impossible for them to run. In addition, after your hits, opponents will not be able to heal for some time.
- Cloth handle… It reduces recoil when firing from the hip, increases aiming speed and reduces the delay between the end of a run and the opportunity to open fire.
- Folding butt “Krausnik”… It increases movement speed and reduces the delay between the end of the sprint and the start of shooting.
- Sight “Krausnik” ISO1M… The optimal choice for close distances.
Most useful skills:
- Stability… It reduces the influence of other factors on travel speed.
- Full ammunition… Adds 2 additional magazines for the submachine gun at the very beginning of the battle.
Best Automatic Assault Rifle in Call of Duty: Vanguard – STG44
This assault rifle is a versatile weapon with high damage, suitable for battles at any distance. At close range, it is slightly inferior to a submachine gun, and at long range – to a sniper rifle, so the STG44 is useful primarily in situations where the situation on the battlefield is constantly changing.
From the modules it is worth installing:
- Muffler MX… Thanks to it, the sound of the shots will become quiet, and you will not be displayed on enemy radars.
- Redi M3 handle… It reduces the delay between the end of the run and the start of shooting, increases the speed of aiming and movement.

- Drum magazine for 45 rounds… This is the maximum magazine capacity for this weapon.
- Fragmentation cartridges… After your bullet hits the enemies, they will not be able to heal for a while. If the shot hits the opponent’s leg, then he will lose the ability to run.
- Cloth handle… It increases aiming speed, reduces recoil and delay between sprint and firing.
- Without butt… If you remove it, then your movement and aiming speed will increase, as well as the delay between the end of the run and the start of shooting will decrease.
- Kollimator MK. 3… This sight provides an aiming factor of 1.35, but does not obstruct the view.
Most useful skills:
- Substantial damage… Thanks to this skill, the area of the enemy’s body will increase, a hit on which is considered critical.
- Full ammunition… You will receive 2 additional shops at the very beginning of the game.

Sniper rifles are a great choice for long range combat. The best of them is Kar98k. The low rate of fire is more than compensated for by the huge damage – if you hit the head or upper body, you will kill the enemy with one shot.
