Thanks to the "Pick Ten" system returning in Vanguardthe SVT-40 can be crafted and moulded to fit your preferred playstyle. Wondering what the right attachments and perks to get there are? Then read on for our guide to the best Vanguard SVT-40 loadouts.

Interested in a different marksman rifle? Check out the links below for our other marksman rifle loadout guides:

The SVT-40 marksman rifle is described in-game as a "high-calibre semi-automatic battle rifle. Especially effective with headshots." This soviet semi-automatic rifle is less accurate and mobile than the other guns in its class but makes up for it with its high firepower. The SVT-40 can one-shot to the torso more consistently than even some sniper rifles.

With Vanguard's Gunsmith, there's not a weapon in the game that can't be adapted and tuned. The base SVT-40 may struggle with speed and accuracy, but that does not have to be permanent. With the right attachments and perks, it's possible to nearly max out the SVT-40's accuracy and gain a decent boost to speed — all while maintaining its above-average firepower.

The following SVT-40 class setups will change how you view this marksman rifle forever.

Vanguard Best SVT-40 Loadouts: Mid-Range Monster

best-vanguard-svt-40-loadouts-mid-range

In a marksman's hands, the SVT-40 can beat out even the STG 44 and Automation and mid to long-range. This mid-range focused Vanguard SVT-40 loadout prioritizes the SVT-40's accuracy and speed, while also transforming it into a one-hit kill weapon. With the Vital proficiency and the Kovalevskaya 800mm barrel, headshots and shots anywhere on the torso are one-hit kills, even from distance. Shots to the limbs will require two bullets to put an enemy down, but that's still one of the fastest time to kill rates in all of Vanguard.

Unlike a traditional sniper rifle, the SVT-40 can be built for speed without a major hit to firepower or accuracy. Removing the stock will increase your speed across the board, enabling nimble movement around the Vanguard maps. Finally, this particular Vanguard SVT-40 loadout is designed for serious flinch resistance, allowing you to take some damage and still return fire accurately. All in all, this Vanguard SVT-40 loadout will strike fear into your opposition.

  • Muzzle: L Brake
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 800mm
  • Optic: MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: .303 British 10 Rounds
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Vanguard Best SVT-40 Loadouts: Counter Sniper

best-vanguard-svt-40-loadouts-counter-sniper

Marksman rifles are excellent choices to counter those pesky snipers. While not as potent and pinpoint as a sniper, marksman rifles like the SVT-40 are far more well-rounded across the board. 

This best Vanguard SVT-40 loadout is perfect for fighting back against snipers while having the adaptability to fight at close to medium-range if needed. With the 1229/Slate 3.25x Custom optic equipped, SVT-40 users can bounce between a 1.35x and 3.25x magnification at any time. This SVT-40 class setup won't net you many one-hit kills, but its fast fire rate and insane accuracy/recoil control allow for quick two-tap kills at any range. 

Marksman rifles are designed to fill the gap between an assault rifle and a sniper — and that's exactly what this Vanguard SVT-40 loadout does. Get the best of both worlds with this hybrid SVT-40 Gunsmith setup.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: ZAC 730mm Precision
  • Optic: 1229/Slate 3.25x Custom
  • Stock: Crown Padded
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: .303 British 10 Rounds
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Focus
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Vanguard Best SVT-40 Loadouts: Perks And Equipment 

The SVT-40 is at its best when the user can keep their distance and fight from range. For that reason, we suggest pairing your Vanguard SVT-40 loadout with the Vanguard perks of Ghost, Forward Intel, and Double Time. Ghost will keep you hidden from enemy intel, while Forward Intel will inform you of what direction your opponents are likely coming from. Lastly, Double Time will give you that extra boost in order to reposition and evade SMG and shotgun users trying to get too close.

As for equipment, we recommend an MK2 Frag Grenade/S-Mine 44 pairing combined with the Armor Plates Field Upgrade. The S-Mine 44 can be placed down as a way to protect and warn you of incoming enemies, while the MK2 Frag Grenade is great for finishing off opponents that are hiding behind cover. The Armor Plates Field Upgrade will provide you with some additional health, allowing you to survive non-lethal sniper shots.

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Double Time
  • Secondary: Machine Pistol
  • Lethal: MK2 Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: S-Mine 44
  • Field Upgrade: Armor Plates

That's all the information you need to create the best Vanguard SVT-40 loadout. Marksman rifles are often underutilized and underrated, but with the right attachments and perks, the SVT-40 rivals even the most popular of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons.
