The best Vanguard Bren loadouts can take this LMG from a sub-par choice to an absolute monster. Vanguard reintroduced the "Pick Ten" system, and with it the ability to transform every aspect of the Bren. With the right attachments, loadouts, and perks you can dramatically improve this guns performance, turning it into a two-shot kill laser. If you're looking to achieve that then we've got the best Vanguard Bren loadouts that promise to transform this LMG. 

Prefer a different LMG? Check out the guides below for our other LMG loadout guides:

The final LMG that Vanguard players unlock, the Bren does not stand out at first glance. The stats are average and there’s nothing really unique about the gun. However, some finely tuned modifications with the Call of Duty Gunsmith unleash the Bren’s full potential. Not many Vanguard weapons benefit as greatly from the Gunsmith’s detailed customisation as the Bren does.

The best Vanguard Bren loadouts will enhance the British LMG’s firepower, speed, accuracy, and ammo capacity. By combining all of the right attachments, the Bren can receive major boosts to these stats with relatively minor penalties. So, if you want to try out the Bren and don’t know where to start, this Vanguard Bren loadout guide is for you.

Vanguard Best Bren Loadouts: Run 'N' Gun

With the right attachments, the hefty Bren LMG can be transformed into a lightweight, poor man’s Death Machine. This Vanguard Bren loadout sacrifices recoil control and accuracy in exchange for firepower and speed. Removing the stock makes the Bren almost feel like an SMG while attachments like the Recoil Booster muzzle, Oak & Shield 690MM Model 2B barrel, and Lengthened ammo increase overall firepower and fire rate. Topped off with a 100 round drum, this Vanguard Bren loadout will mow down hordes of enemies with ease. This run 'n' gun Bren loadout lacks consistency at longer ranges, but has solid hip-fire accuracy and can compete at mid-range.

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Oak & Shield 690MM Model 2B
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: .303 British 100 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Brace
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Vanguard Best Bren Loadouts: Objective Camper

The base Bren isn’t the most reliable weapon at mid to long-range, but fitted with select attachments making up the best Vanguard Bren loadouts, it feels reminiscent of a laser beam. The attachments listed in this particular Vanguard Bren loadout focus on maximizing the LMGs accuracy, recoil control, and firepower. This objective camper Bren loadout is great for setting up shop in one location and holding it down. It will be near impossible for enemies to breach your setup if you manage to mount the Bren on a piece of cover. Simply hold down the trigger as you unleash a barrage of devastating gunfire on your opponents.

  • Muzzle: G28 Compensator
  • Barrel: Queen’s 705MM Royal
  • Optic: MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock: Oak & Shield 12B
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: 303 British 100 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Brace
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Vanguard Best Bren Loadouts: Perks And Equipment 

The Bren’s immense firepower and seemingly endless magazine make it a mammoth of a weapon. However, enemy players will focus on you when they hear and witness the endless gunfire coming from your direction. For that reason, it’s best to design your Vanguard Bren loadout with Call of Duty Vanguard perks and equipment that will make you tankier. For example, Fortified and the Armor Plates Field Upgrade will allow you to eat some extra bullets and grenades before going down.

As for Perk 2 and 3, Forward Intel will inform you of which directions enemies are coming from while you hold down an objective and Double Time will let you move around the Vanguard maps at a faster pace.

Finally, the Bren is bulkier than its assault rifle and SMG counterparts, so it's important to use secondaries and grenades that you can pull out and use quickly.

  • Perk 1: Fortified
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Double Time
  • Secondary: Machine Pistol
  • Lethal: Gammon Bomb
  • Tactical: No. 69 Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Armor Plates

You now have all the information you need to create the best Vanguard Bren loadouts. While the Bren gets less love than Vanguard mainstays like the STG44 and MP-40, it is still a very capable choice among the Vanguard best LMGs
