The M1 Garand is one of three marksman rifles in Call of Duty Vanguard, boasting the accuracy of a sniper but with a much faster fire rate. The M1 Garand operates best at mid-range and begs you not to try using it up close. A popular gun of choice, it may come as no surprise that it is one of the only two weapon blueprints from Vanguard that has been unleashed early in Warzone – the other being the STG44.
But we’re not here to chat battle royales – we’re to bring you the best M1 Garand loadout for Vanguard’s multiplayer modes. In Vanguard, you can take full advantage of the new attachment system, which offers ten whole slots of customisation, to improve whichever aspect of the gun you so desire.
That’s a lot of choice and something you’ll need to seriously take some time over when working out how to slay with this Vanguard weapon. With ten attachments, you should be able to create a class that excels in the battlefield. So, what’s the best M1 Garand class right now? That’s a question we’re going to try and answer for you with our suggestions below.
Here’s the best Call of Duty Vanguard M1 Garand class we’ve found.
Best M1 Garand Vanguard loadout
- Muzzle: Mk. 2 Stabilizer

In our opinion, this is one of the best M1 Garand class setups in Vanguard. The Mk. 2 Stabilizer is the preferred muzzle of choice here as it’ll improve the accuracy of your gun, which is something you’ll need when playing at a distance. It comes at the price of hip fire accuracy, but that’s okay for this class, as you’ll be playing at the M1 Garand’s preferred mid-to-long-range.
The .30-06 16 Round Drums meanwhile offer an extension to an already impressive feature of the M1 Garand (a bigger mag size than similar weapons) by making it even bigger. It’s a handy addition given that you’re unlikely to take your opponents down in just one shot.
We also need to remember that the M1 Garand is not a sniper and therefore will not dish out the same damage as, say, the best Kar98k Vanguard class. Equipping the Hollow Point ammo to your M1 Garand class is very handy as it ups the damage when hitting limbs. So, you don’t have to be as accurate with your shots to still take down your opponents.
So, there it is, the best M1 Garand class for Call of Duty: Vanguard. If you jump into one of Vanguard’s smaller multiplayer maps, you may need something a bit more suited to close-range fights – oh look, a lethal MP40 Vanguard class, that’ll do nicely.
