Underused Vanguard SMG Revealed to Have a Higher TTK Than Most Meta Weapons

Activision

The Sten SMG was revealed to have an insanely high TTK by popular Warzone content creator WhosImmortal. The Sten was initially introduced in Call of Duty: Vanguard, but quickly fell off players radars due to it not fitting in the current Warzone meta.

The gun is currently so far out of the Season 4 meta, WZranked, a popular website for players to look at stats and current meta, shows that the Stern has a pick rate of less than 0.5%. With less than one percent of players using the Stern it's no wonder why the gun is WhosImmortal's hidden gem.

What makes the Sten so effective, is that the gun has a great time-to-kill (TTK). It does extremely high damage and is great in close quarters. Here's the loadout:

- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: SA 65mm Rapid
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Gawain Parra
- Perk: Acrobatic
- Perk 2: Quick
- Rear Grip: Taped Grip
- Magazine: 9mm 50 Round Mags
- Ammunition: Subsonic
- Underbarrel: M1915 Steady

While the Sten is great in close-range encounters, it's not effective in any other scenarios. Players should run a Sten loadout with Overkill, so they can pair the SMG with guns that are effective at longer ranges such as the AS44 or Grau 5.56.
