This best Automaton Vanguard class loadout guide is here for those who want to make sure they're using the fully optimized version of the top-tier assault rifle in the fresh weapon meta in pubs.

With Season 1 of Call of Duty: Vanguard just weeks away, the Automaton has surely emerged as one of, if not the best assault rifle to use in the game. On paper, the Automaton is the best AR in Call of Duty: Vanguard thanks to its broken TTK across all ranges. Here are the attachments to use for the best Automaton class loadout in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best Automaton Vanguard Class Loadout: Which Attachments to Use

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Barrel: Zac 600MM BFA
  • Magazine: 6.5MM Sakura 45 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Frangible
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Stock: Zac Skeletal
  • Proficiency: Frenzy
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The MX Silencer is a great muzzle to use here as it improves the Automaton's Accuracy while also adding Sound Suppression.

With the underbarrel, we went with the Carver Foregrip as it helps out with the gun's Recoil Control and Hip Fire Accuracy.

Next, the Zac 600MM BFA barrel is a great option to further boost the Automaton's handling, as well as reduce its scope sway and gun bob.

For the magazine, we'd go with the 6.5MM Sakura 45 Round Mags attachment as it provides a whopping 20 extra bullets per mag.

We'd also go with the Frangible ammo type as it delayed enemy healing and slows them if hit in the leg, which will likely happen a lot with a medium-to-long-range gun like this.

While the optic ultimately comes down to personal preference, the Slate Reflector is a great sight for this weapon.

Add on the Fabric Grip as well as it improves the Automaton's ADS and sprint-to-fire speeds, as well as benefits its hip fire recoil recovery.

We also recommend adding the Zac Skeletal stock to improve the movement speed and steadiness while aim walking, as well as help out with its Initial Accuracy and Recoil.

Lastly, for the Automaton's two weapon parks, we'd opt for Frenzy and Fully Loaded to allow you to stay as aggressive as possible.
