The STG44 is a classic Call of Duty weapon that’s featured in several games across the entire franchise. In fact, only the M1911 has made more appearances over the years. As an assault rifle introduced during the Second World War, it’s no surprise that the German weapon has once again returned to shred Call of Duty Vanguard players.
Being Vanguard’s entry assault rifle, the STG44 is currently very popular. Players coming over from Call of Duty Warzone will also take a liking to the STG44, seeing as it’s already been sneakily released in the battle royale in the form of weapon blueprints.
But what is the best Vanguard STG44 class out there right now? With ten attachment slots for you to customise, there’s an awful lot of choice out there. However, we think we’ve found a great class setup that will see you beaming your way to some Hardpoint wins or clutching up in Search and Destroy.
Without further ado, here is the best Vanguard STG44 class setup.

This monstrous STG44 Vanguard class is built to improve the two key aspects everyone looks for in a strong assault rifle: accuracy and damage.
Attachments like the F8 Stabilizer and the VDD 760MM O5B barrel help keep things smooth and steady when you’re beaming from long distance, while the Lengthened ammo type gives you a big boost to bullet velocity.
The Vital Proficiency also increases the are for critical hits, meaning you can dish out big damage more often, while Fully Loaded gives you plenty of ammo in reserve for when you’re gunning for killstreaks.
While movement speed and ADS times are a little low, this STG44 class setup is perfect for someone who enjoys picking foes off from a distance, rather than running and gunning (we’ve got an MP40 Vanguard class for that, by the way).
A lot of these attachments are unlocked at the upper end of this weapon’s levelling system, so it may take some grinding to unlock them all. However, our handy guide to fast weapon levelling in Vanguard should help you out.
While we’ve got to wait a little while before we can enjoy the Vanguard ranked mode, we can already see a setup similar to this working for the STG44 in the competitive arena.
