Fans of high fire-rate submachine guns in Call of Duty got a special gift this week with the launch of Vanguard’s Season Two Reloaded update.

The Armaguerra 43 is the World War II FPS’s latest addition, and the SMG is looking to be a strong option for close-range encounters. It’s strong at the outset, but it’s made even better once it’s unlocked, leveled up, and tweaked in the Gunsmith.

While it sports a wildly high rate of fire, the Armaguerra is weak in the damage department. Its magazine is also pretty small relative to its fire rate, but these issues are fixed quite quickly with some key attachments to help turn it into a beast up close.

Here’s a strong loadout for the Armaguerra in Vanguard.

Screengrab via Activision:
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Imerito 550MM 03P
  • Optic: Shiraishi Custom Type 15
  • Stock: Imerito SA Folding
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 75 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This loadout’s key is the 8mm Kurz 75 Round Mags, which turns the high fire-rate SMG into an absolute bullet hose that will rain hell on unsuspecting enemies inside of Vanguard’s close-quarters maps.

SMG and objective players will find a lot of fun to be had with this build, which admittedly hammers the weapon’s speed and movement but increases its firepower and ability to dole out a wild amount of damage up close.
