Our Call of Duty: Vanguard SMG tier list for November 2021 is here to break down which of the guns are the best to use as players begin to dive into the new title's multiplayer for the first time.

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. So far, there are 38 different weapons to use, including seven assault rifles, six SMGs, four shotguns, four LMGs, three marksman rifles, three sniper rifles, five pistols, four launchers, and two melee tools. Here is a breakdown of the best SMGs to use in Call of Duty: Vanguard in November 2021.

Call of Duty: Vanguard SMG Tier List November 2021

S Tier

Sitting alone in S Tier is the MP-40, which is likely the best gun in the entire game at the moment. With a weapon as important to the WWII era as the MP-40, it appears Sledgehammer Games made it a point of emphasis for the SMG one of the strongest guns in the game.

A Tier

  • Type 100
  • PPSh-41

In A Tier are two SMGs that are also outstanding in those close-to-medium range fights, but perhaps need the right attachments in order to get there. Once fully kitted out, the Type 100 and PPSh-41 can surely go toe-to-toe with any gun in Vanguard.

B Tier

  • Owen Gun
  • M1928

The Owen Gun and M1928 group together nicely in B Tier as although they can be very deadly in the right situations, that lack of versatility does keep them for being ranked higher. While the Owen Gun is the best SMG to use at longer ranges, the M1928 just might be the best SMG to use on compact maps like Das Haus.

C Tier

  • Sten

Lastly, the Sten sits alone in C Tier for now due to its troublesome recoil pattern and decent time-to-kill.
