Call of Duty: Vanguard is turning back the clock. Leaving behind Black Ops Cold War’s 1980s era and Modern Warfare’s near-future setting, Vanguard is bringing gamers back to World War II.

WWII games are always popular with fans thanks to their historical setting, the rustic time period, and, most importantly, the weapons. WWII weapons are satisfying to use for a variety of reasons and none might be more fun than the MP-40 submachine gun.

Used by the Germans in WWII, the MP-40 has become a staple in all WWII games for its overall success rate. It’s back with a vengeance in Vanguard, marking its territory as one of the best overall guns in the game at the outset.

Here are the best attachments for the best gun in CoD: Vanguard so far.
