The best Vanguard STG44 loadouts are the perfect starter kits, which is just as well as it is the first assault rifle you'll have access to. Vanguard has brought back the iconic Pick Ten System, allowing you to customise and mould any weapon to your preferred playstyle, and the STG44 is surprisingly variable thanks to it. Let's get right into the action with the preferred attachments and perks that make up the best Vanguard STG44 loadouts. 

If you are looking for more assault rifles, check out our other Vanguard guides. 

In Call of Duty Vanguard, the gunsmith options are more elaborate than ever before, having moved from the classic "Pick Ten" mould of the decade-old Black Ops 2 to now having a colossal 10 slots for your primary weapon alone. With an infinite number of combinations for your Vanguard STG44 loadout, there will be ample opportunity to craft the weapon as both a meddlesome mid-range maniac and a long-distance destroyer, boasting a steady rate of fire whilst packing a punch with each projectile round.

So, here's our guide to get craft the best Vanguard STG44 loadouts, including the best class set up and attachments.

With the STG44 not quite being able to outgun SMGs in their prime range in a straight gunfight (eliminating the player skill factor), you'll still be able to get quite personal and behind enemy lines with a swift mid-range adaptation of your best Vanguard STG44 loadouts. Adding attachments that will add movement speed, lower ADS and sprint-to-fire times, and increasing bullet velocity to your class set-up will benefit you greatly. 

For your mid-range Vanguard STG44 loadout, you'll want these attachments:

  • Muzzle - MX Silencer
  • Barrel - VDD 320mm 02B
  • Underbarrel - Carver Foregrip
  • Optic - Slate Reflector
  • Stock - Krausnick S11S Folding
  • Proficiency - Nerves of Steel
  • Kit - Surplus
  • Rear Grip - Stippled Grip
  • Ammo Type - Lengthened
  • Magazine - N/A

For the more reserved players that prefer an anchoring role in multiplayer, the long-distance Vanguard STG44 loadout is more up your street. Switching out speed for effective damage range, less recoil, and a cleaner optic, will give you the maximum chance of piecing up high killstreaks.

For your long-distance Vanguard STG44 loadout, you'll want these attachments:

    • Muzzle - MX Silencer
    • Barrel - VDD 760mm 05B
    • Underbarrel - Carver Foregrip
    • Optic - Slate Reflector
    • Stock - VDD 34S Weighted
    • Proficiency - Vital
    • Kit - Fully Loaded
