 Call of Duty Vanguard is no longer supported with additional content or significant updates, and players have largely moved on to more recent releases. Nevertheless, Vanguard’s multiplayer is still available and this loadout is usable.

The MP40 was one of the first guns you could get your hands on in Call of Duty Vanguard multiplayer. It was also convenient that it was one of the most powerful, too. The best MP40 class in Vanguard packed a serious punch and allowed you to zip around the map and make use of its fast time to kill.

Not only was the MP40 a bit of a menace on the battlefields of Vanguard, but it was also a fan-favorite weapon and a classic gun in any WW2-era shooter.

With the new attachment system, there was a mind-boggling ten attachments for you to bolt onto your MP40, so it could be hard figuring out what the best possible setup was.

Best MP40 Vanguard class

The best CoD Vanguard MP40 loadout was:

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 221MM 01B
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Momentum
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This MP40 class was all about tearing around Vanguard’s maps and shredding at close range. With boosted movement speed and ADS times, you could move like a mosquito and rack up plenty of kills as you go.

While attachments like the F8 Stabilizer did help to keep your accuracy at a decent level, it was rare that you’d be doing much mid or long-range shooting with this MP40 anyhow.

The Fabric Grip gave you a boost to your hip fire recoil control, so even at closer ranges you could probably get away with not aiming down your sights at all. This made you pretty sprightly, which was perfect for making your enemies’ heads spin.

The Momentum Proficiency also added more incentive to be aggressive, offering boosted movement speed immediately after a kill. Fully Loaded also meant you had plenty of ammo in your back pocket for going on big streaks.

If you were a slower, more methodical player, this STG44 Vanguard class would have suited you a little better. However, if you loved tearing about with an aggressive playstyle, the MP40 is a great option that held a steady spot in the meta for quite some time.
