At the outset of Call of Duty: Vanguard, there are three guns that dominate the meta.

Everyone knows about the STG44 and MP-40, but the third gun being used by pros and sweaty gamers everywhere is the Automaton. The second unlocked assault rifle offers a higher fire rate than other ARs, making it formidable in up-close encounters.

Even some Call of Duty League pros, the best CoD players in the world who are paid for their gun skill, are using the Automaton occasionally in tournaments and scrimmages. That’s how you know it’s legitimate.

Here’s how CDL pros are using the Automaton early on in Vanguard.
