In Call of Duty: Vanguard, one of the best SMGs for players to use is the M1928 – or as it’s often known as, the Thompson. The M1928 offers a large magazine with a high fire rate, and with ten attachments at your disposal, you can build one of the best weapons in the game.
But which attachments do you need for the ultimate M1928 Vanguard class? Well, we don’t know the full picture yet, but if you’re currently playing the Vanguard beta you’ll have access to around half of the attachments available for the M1928, and players have already been making some pretty powerful classes.
We’ve been scouring around for the class we think is the best, and we reckon we’ve found it. It also comes from one of the most trusted and wise figures in the Call of Duty scene: Seth ‘Scump’ Abner. The veteran CoD esports pro is often regarded as the best SMG player of all time, so why wouldn’t you listen to Scump when it comes to making the best M1928 class.
Best M1928 Vanguard class
- Muzzle: Quicksilver Silencer
- Barrel: CGC 14.5” Shrouded
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: CGC Wire Grip
- Underbarrel: M1930 Madson
- Magazine: None
- Ammo Type: Subsonic
- Rear Grip: Leather Grip
- Proficiency: Steady
- Kit: Fast Melee
This is the setup Scump uses for his M1928 class in Vanguard. It’s a pretty well-rounded class, but it does sacrifice some accuracy for better speed and movement stats. It’s the perfect SMG for fast, aggressive players
The Subsonic ammo means that you can fly around the map and rack up kills without detection, while the CGC Shrouded barrel gives you improved hip fire accuracy – aiming is overrated.
While there is a net loss when it comes to accuracy and aiming stability, the M1930 Madson underbarrel helps keep that loss to a minimum.
While this certainly isn’t the best pick for slower players that like longer-range battles (try our STG44 Vanguard loadout, if that sounds like you) this M1928 build is perfect for those that like to be on the move and get up close and personal with the enemy.
