The Call of Duty Vanguard weapons list is a stacked one, as players still come to grips with the game's full arsenal of weapons. Vanguard reintroduces a roster of WW2 era weaponry, while still hosting a wide variety of weapon types. With some old favourites and new entries, we've got a full breakdown of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons lists including all SMGs, ARs, LMGs, Marksman Rifles, Snipers and Shotguns that you can use in both Vanguard and Warzone. Let's get into it. 

Call of Duty Vanguard Weapons List: Assault Rifles

The assault rifle is an easy way to get started in Call of Duty Vanguard weapons, and it looks like Vanguard is ready to maintain this versatility. Medium-range, big damage, reasonable recoil management - the AR has it all, and will do you many favours on the mid-to-large maps that Vanguard has to offer. Here's every assault rifle coming to the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons list:

  • STG44
  • Automaton 
  • ITRA Burst 
  • BAR
  • AS44
  • NZ-41
  • Volkssturmgewehr

Call of Duty Vanguard Weapons List: SMGs

Few things are easier to do in Call of Duty than lay waste to your foes with an SMG. The tiny firecrackers are wonderful at short ranges, and if you can keep your aim up around the tough recoil, you'll fill your enemies with more holes than Leerdammer and with enough time to spare to do the same to your next victim.

Here are the known SMGs appearing as part of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons:

  • MP-40
  • Sten
  • M1928
  • Owen Gun
  • Type 100
  • PPSH-41

Call of Duty Vanguard Weapons List: LMGs

This one's for you tanks. The Light Machine Gun might be heavy and sluggish, but it makes up for it with sheer firepower and immense ammo capacity. If you're in it for the long haul and you don't mind trailing behind your teammates letting them absorb enemy rounds before you get in there and get some vengeance, then the following are for you.

Here are the LMGs you can expect to wield in-game as part of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons:

  • MG42 
  • DP27
  • Type 11 
  • Bren

It's all well and good to go in all guns blazing, but if you've got the patience for it, a sniper or marksman rifle could make you the unsung hero of the game. Perfect from picking off baddies from afar or pulling off a tasty trickshot, these weapons will help you get the upper hand before your enemies even know you're there.

Here are the snipers and marksman rifles that are a part of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons:


  • 3-Line Rifle
  • Type 99
  • Kar98k

Marksman Rifles

  • G-43
  • M1 Garand
  • SVT-40

Few things in shooters are more satisfying than getting close enough to an enemy to blast them with a shotgun and turn them into a red mist. The short range devil is great for making short work of your enemies, and tearing through individuals at amazing speeds.

Here's the known shotguns that are a part of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons:

  • Einhorn Revolving 
  • Combat Shotgun
  • Gracey Auto
  • Double Barrel

Call of Duty Vanguard Weapons List: Pistols

The absolute most trusted sidearm, the pistol is a classic for a reason. Easy to switch to, easy handling, and a few bullets to kill - there's few guns that are more straightforward. An easy fallback if you run out of ammo or are lying in hiding, the pistol will get you out of a jam with ease.

Here are the pistols we can expect in the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons:

  • Ratt
  • Top Break 
  • 1911 
  • Klauser 
  • Machine Pistol

Call of Duty Vanguard Weapons List: Melee

If you fancy playing it cocky and getting some kills that'll make your enemies kick themselves, there's no better way to do it than with a melee weapon. Black Ops Cold War had a lot of fun with its silly melee weapons, and there's every chance that Vanguard could follow suit later down the line.

For now, though, here is the one melee weapon in the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons:

  • FS Fighting Knife

Call of Duty Vanguard Weapons List: Launchers

Fancy some big damage? Want to take out three enemies at a time? Or do you just want to make a big mess? Well, good news - the launchers are back for Vanguard, and they're gearing up to do more damage than ever.

Here's every launcher we know is coming to the new Call of Duty Vanguard weapons list:

  • M1 Bazooka
  • Panzerschreck
  • Panzerfaust
  • MK11 Launcher

That concludes the list of all of the Call of Duty Vanguard weapons that you can shred through multiplayer lobbies with. All of these weapons will also be available in the new Warzone Pacific map
