Call of Duty Vanguard STG44 best class setup, attachments, and more

What are the best attachments for the STG44 in Call of Duty Vanguard? Here's everything you need to know about the Vanguard STG44 best class.

 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 STG44 loadout is usable.

The STG44 is a classic Call of Duty weapon that’s featured in several games across the entire franchise. In fact, only the M1911 had made more appearances over the years when Vanguard was released. As an assault rifle introduced during the Second World War, it’s no surprise that the German weapon once again returned to shred in Call of Duty Vanguard.

Being Vanguard’s entry assault rifle, the STG44 was a very popular weapon, especially as players had the chance to get used to it even before Vanguard launched thanks to its early debut in Warzone.

But what is the best Vanguard STG44 class out there? With ten attachment slots for you to customize, there was an awful lot of choice. However, we found a great loadout that worked wonders whether you were holding zones in Hardpoint or clutching up in Search and Destroy.

Best Vanguard STG44 class

The best CoD Vanguard STG44 loadout was:

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: VDD 760MM 05B
  • Optic: MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 45 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This monstrous STG44 Vanguard class was built to improve the two key aspects everyone looked for in a strong assault rifle: accuracy and damage.

Attachments like the F8 Stabilizer and the VDD 760MM O5B barrel helped keep things smooth and steady when you were beaming from a long distance, while the Lengthened ammo type gave you a big boost to bullet velocity.

The Vital Proficiency also increased the area for critical hits, meaning you could dish out big damage more often, while Fully Loaded gave you plenty of ammo in reserve for when you were gunning for killstreaks. After all, the last thing you wanted was to have your streak curtailed because you ran out of ammo.

While movement speed and ADS times were a little low, this STG44 class setup was perfect for someone who enjoyed 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 were unlocked at the upper end of this weapon’s levelling system, however, so it did take some grinding to unlock them all – and still will if you’re journeying back into this older CoD title today. However, our handy guide to fast weapon levelling in Vanguard should help you out.

While it wasn’t always the top dog in the meta, the STG44 always stayed a competitive fan-favorite throughout Call of Duty Vanguard’s time in the spotlight.
