For those diving into the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta, 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 over the beta weekend.
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 pro 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.

This MP40 class was being used by three-time Call of Duty world champion Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, and it’s designed to give you maximum speed and agility, while not compromising on accuracy.
If you love flying around the map as an aggressive SMG player, this is the perfect build for you. If you’re not, then give it a go anyway – it’s a class worthy of a true champion.
While Crimsix decides to run his MP40 with no optic, using just the default sights, we’ve suggested using the clean Slate Reflector optic, but that’s also down to personal preference.
So there you have it, one piping hot MP40 class for you to use in the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta. Check back in when the full game releases in November and more attachments become available, as you can bet players will work out an even stronger MP40 loadout.
