There always seems to be at least one overpowered shotgun in every Call of Duty game, and Call of Duty Vanguard is no different. In small maps like Das Haus and the imminent Shipment, one shotgun is completely blowing people away – the Gracey Auto.
While the base weapon isn’t much to write home about, this unbelievable Gracey Auto shotgun loadout makes it one of the best Vanguard guns. With this combination of attachments, you have a huge magazine for racking up multi kills, ridiculous damage numbers, and lightning-fast sprint speed and movement. This Gracey Auto shotgun build was first revealed to the world in a viral clip, showing streamer ‘Zexafy’ getting a V2 Rocket in less than 30 seconds using this lethal full-auto killing machine.
If you want a bit of advice, it’s this – level this thing up ASAP and use this Gracey Auto class before it inevitably gets nerfed in a future Vanguard update. It’s a monster, but it will probably soon be tamed. Our how to level Vanguard weapons fast guide will help you unlock those attachments in no time at all.
Here’s the best Vanguard Gracey Auto class for blasting your way around some of the smaller multiplayer maps.
Vanguard Gracey Auto class
- Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
- Barrel: Chariot 33” Sport
- Optic: M38/ Slate 2.5X Custom
- Stock: Ragdoll P-Wire
- Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
- Magazine: 12 Gauge 10 Round Drums
- Ammo Type: Buck and Slug
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
- Proficiency: Gung-Ho
- Kit: Quick
This is the same monstrous Gracey Auto Vanguard class used in Zexafy’s notorious clip.
The absolute key here is the proficiency and kit combo. Gung-Ho allows you to hip fire while sprinting and Quick gives you a massive movement speed boost. Pair that with the Lightweight perk as well and you’ll be zooming around the map.

Elsewhere, the 12 Gauge 10 Round mags give you ample bullets and speedy reload speeds, while the Buck and Slug rounds improve your range. The Chariot barrel also helps with range, and the M97 Full Choke muzzle tightens your bullet spread to maximise the damage dealt by accurate shots.
A very valuable attachment is the Fabric Grip which gives you a boost to your hip fire capabilities (because if you’re ADSing with this thing, you’re doing it wrong).
Equally valuable are the SMLE Pistol Grip and Ragdoll P-Wire stock, which both give generous increases to sprint to fire time.
This Gracey Auto shotgun class is built for one thing – close-range carnage. For racking up ridiculous kill counts on small maps, there really is no better tool for the job. For larger maps that require effectiveness at all ranges, you can’t go wrong with a good STG44 Vanguard class.
