This best STG44 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 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 STG44 has surely emerged as a strong option since the beta. Here are the attachments to use for the best STG44 class loadout in Call of Duty: Vanguard at launch.

Best STG Vanguard Class Loadout: Which Attachments to Use

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Barrel: Krausnick 220MM Rapid
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 30 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Stock: Krausnick S11S Folding
  • Proficiency: Slight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Recoil Booster is a great muzzle to use here as it improves the STG44's rate of fire, and consequently, its time-to-kill (TTK).

With the underbarrel, we went with the M1930 Strife Angled as it helps out with the gun's accuracy, aiming stability and aim walking steadiness.

Next, the Krausnick 220MM Rapid barrel is a great option to further boost the STG44's fire rate.

For the magazine, we'd go with the 7.62 Gorenko 30 Round Mags attachment as it provides a huge boost to the gun's recoil control and accuracy.

To make up for the 7.62 Gorenko 30 Round Mags' bullet velocity and range trade-off, go with the Lengthened ammo type as it essentially cancels that out.

Something that helps out with two statistical categories new to Call of Duty in Vanguard, the Stippled Grip rear grip improves the STG44's recoil recovery, and initial accuracy and recoil.

We also recommend to add the Krausnick S11S Folding stock to improve the weapon's sprint to fire and movement speeds.

Lastly, for the STG44's two weapon parks, we'd opt for Slight of Hand and Fully Loaded to allow you to stay as aggressive 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.
