This next best Vanguard MG42 loadout will be all about raining fire down on the enemy from a distance. This build isn't actually too much slower than the run 'n' gun, but excels in accuracy with minimal recoil. So sit back, mount your MG42 and let the bullets to the rest of the work.

  • Barrel: Krausnick 450mm B42MG
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
