Vanguard Weapon Setup Guides - The Volkssturmgewehr

Call of Duty: Vanguard launched with a ton of classic WWII guns. But for every gun, we have an astonishing amount of attachments to choose from, and we can use ten at once. So, where do you even begin? What attachments do you need? Don't worry, we'll give you all the answers in our Vanguard weapon setup guides. And today: the Volkssturmgewehr.

The Volkssturmgewehr or Volk is a little hard to control while you grind out for attachments but it's quick (which is rare in Vanguard) and it's got a solid TTK. This gun is extremely solid on shorter distances and is definitely worth trying.

Check out our best weapons in Vanguard for an idea of how well the weapon places. Needless to say, it's high enough that we think this makes a solid choice for any player to start leveling.

The Volk Attachment Setup

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Krausnick 428MM 05V
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Reisdorf 22V Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Handstop
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 45 Rnd Drums
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Volk is kinda strange and needs some time to get used to. If played correctly however, it is really fun to use. Here is our complete ranking of all ARs in Vanguard.

The Equipment & Perks On An Volk Loadout

From what we've played so far, the meta loadout will look something like this:

  • Secondary Weapon: Machine Pistol
  • Lethal: Thermite
  • Tactical: Stuns
  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Radar
  • Perk 3: Demolition
  • Field Upgrade: Armour Plates

The above will almost certainly be the multiplayer meta for a Volk loadout unless they make serious balance changes. The Armour Plates in particular are in need of a nerf, but whether one comes... we'll have to wait and see.
