This best MP-40 Vanguard class loadout guide is here for those who want to make sure they're using the fully optimized version of the top-tier SMG in the fresh weapon meta on day one.

It's week one with Vanguard multiplayer officially here, and needless to say, players are already trying to figure out what the best guns to use are. While there will surely be plenty of back-and-forth over what the meta weapons will be as players gradually get more matches and gunfights in, the MP-40 has surely emerged as a strong option since the beta. Here are the attachments to use for the best MP-40 class loadout in Call of Duty: Vanguard at launch.

Best MP-40 Vanguard Class Loadout: Which Attachments to Use

  • Muzzle: Marauder Flash Hider
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Barrel: VDD 189MM Short
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Stock: Krausnick 33M Folding
  • Proficiency: Unmarked
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Marauder Flash Hider is a great muzzle to use here as it conceals the MP-40's muzzle flash, while also helping out with its recoil control.

With the underbarrel, we went with the SMLE Pistol Grip as it helps out with the gun's sprint-to-fire speed and hip-fire accuracy.

Next, the VDD 189MM Short barrel is a great option as it adds two pros new to Call of Duty in Vanguard — less damage falloff at long range and increased limb damage.

For the magazine, we'd go with the 7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags attachment as it provides a huge boost to the MP-40's recoil control and accuracy.

To make up for the 7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags' bullet velocity and range trade-off, go with the Lengthened ammo type as it essentially cancels that out.

A solid option with no drawbacks that gives another small buff to the MP-40's ADS speed, the Leather Grip is a great option for the rear grip.

We also recommend to add the Krausnick 33M Folding stock to improve the weapon's sprint to fire and movement speeds.

Lastly, for the MP-40's two weapon perks, we'd opt for Unmarked and Fully Loaded to allow you to stay as aggressive while on the move as long as possible.

With the 10th slot being the optic, it ultimately comes down to personal preference, but it's likely best to just leave it off for the best possible ADS speed.
