CoD: Vanguard Best Ranked Weapons
10. DP27 – Best LMG from CoD Vanguard
The Pizza Gun or the UFO, or whatever you want to call it, is a uniquely looking LMG that has a lot of stuff in its frame. While the MG42 has a better rate of fire and a much bigger clip, the DP27 hits a lot harder, maintains the same accuracy, and feels like a better LMG.
9. G-43 – Best Sniper Rifle in CoD Vanguard
Semi-automatic rifles have always been a thing in the Call of Duty franchise with the G3 lighting up Call of Duty 4, and more recently the DMR has become popular in Cold War and Warzone.
The G-43 takes the crown in Vanguard because it’s so precise you can’t help but love it. It’s one of those amazing weapons that excels in its default form, but once you start putting attachments in it the G-43 really starts to take shape.
8. ITRA Burst
A regular Call of Duty Burst Pistol is next, and the ITRA Burst offers an interesting dilemma compared to the past few years – due to the number of bullets it fires.
Traditionally, the burst weapons in the series hammer 3-round chains in rapid bursts of fire, but the ITRA Burst rips through the rulebook and fires 4 rounds at a time with its standard 20-round magazine. Basic math shows this to be a very risky and rewarding weapon to use, but if you use it correctly, the ITRA Burst is very effective.

7. Combat Shotgun – Best Vanguard Shotgun in CoD
You could argue that some of Vanguard’s maps were basically designed for the combat shotgun, and you should really have fun with it.
It offers admirable range, a decent rate of fire for a pump shotgun, and like any pump shotgun it hits harder than a herd of running bulls. If you don’t like using the Combat Rifle as your primary weapon, this would be a great secondary with the Overkill perk equipped.
6. Kar98k – Best CoD Vanguard Sniper Rifle
A weapon that will be familiar to many who have dabbled in Warzone at some point, the Kar98k is the sniper rifle of choice for many, and the same will likely be true for Vanguard.
The key to the Kar98k’s incredible success is its speed as its ADS time is formidable for such a long range weapon, and it can almost hit anyone. As long as you have a box of ammo or extra ammo with you, Vanguard offers much more sniper-friendly maps to keep you going crazy.

The Volkssturmgewehr, or Volk for short, is one of the few pistols that sacrifices accuracy for speed – in large part.
Its base stats already have the weapon’s rate of fire at a high level, especially compared to some ram assault rifles. But the gun thrived in the Vanguard beta, and the Sledgehammer games saw no reason to tinker with this finely balanced gun.
Check out our best Volk loadout.
4. Type 100
The Type 100 is a lot of fun to use because it’s a very solid weapon, and also has the potential to get even better than it already is.
As the Call of Duty streamers show, the Type 100 can turn into a two-hit beast, and some players already think it’s Vanguard’s best SMG. Unless you use the best accessories in the game, we don’t think it has the firepower of our best SMG, we’ll get to that shortly, but if you use it enough it might just be the best. for you .
3.MP-40 – Best SMG from CoD Vanguard
No, you read that right, the MP-40 is not in our top two, and we’ll get to that shortly. But the MP-40 well deserves its third place because it has all the features needed to make it the best SMG in the game.
He had a reputation for being unstoppable in previous Call of Duty games – looking at you World at War – and he easily retains that identity in Vanguard. Highly accurate, even at long distances, and if you manage to unlock and equip the extended magazine, it can fire even longer in crucial fights.

The STG44 only comes in at number two on our ranking list, and it’s very worthy of its place, as most Call of Duty: Vanguard players will attest.
Most lobbies will usually have at least half of the players using some form of STG44 loadout because it’s an amazing assault rifle. It has everything you need from an AR: superb damage range, impressive recoil control, and stopping power enough to make the enemy team cry. It’s a pretty much flawless weapon. But why isn’t he first on our list?

1. Automaton – Best Assault Rifle in CoD Vanguard
Because the Automaton AR has all the qualities of the STG with the added quality of being a little faster. Sleep on this weapon at your own peril, the Automaton is so underrated and many don’t give it a chance.
One of its redeeming traits is its easy-to-learn recoil pattern because even without attachments it rides a tiny bit in a straight line. It’s super easy to use, super easy to kill with a ton of kills, and for our money it’s the best weapon to use in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

This covers our in-depth review of every weapon in Vanguard with a full ranking of all of them. While there are almost 40 weapons in the game already, we expect Sledgehammer Games to continue adding more as the seasons go by.
