For those diving into Call of Duty Vanguard multiplayer, the MP40 will be one of the first guns you’ll get your hands on. It’s also convenient that it’s one of the most powerful, too. The best MP40 class in Vanguard packs a serious punch, and allows you to zip around the map and make use of its fast time to kill.

Not only is the MP40 a bit of a menace on the battlefields of Vanguard, it’s also a fan-favourite weapon and a classic gun in any WW2-era shooter. Expect to come up against a fair few MP40s during the first few weeks of Vanguard.

With the new attachment system, there’s a mind-boggling ten attachments for you to bolt onto your MP40, so it can be hard figuring out what the best possible setup is. Well, we’ve scoured the loadouts of Call of Duty players to see what they’ve been running, and we’ve found a great MP40 class for you to try.

Here’s the best MP40 class in Call of Duty Vanguard.

best MP40 Vanguard class

  • 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 is all about tearing around Vanguard’s maps and shredding at close range. With boosted movement speed and ADS times, you’ll be moving like a mosquito and racking up plenty of kills as you go.

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

The Fabric Grip will also give 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.

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

If you’re a slower, more methodical player, maybe this STG44 Vanguard class would suit you a little better. However, if you love tearing about with an aggressive playstyle, the MP40 is a great option.
