Assault rifle fans have some decent variety at the outset of Call of Duty: Vanguard, Sledgehammer’s World War II first-person shooter. The Volkssturmgewehr is one of several options thus far.

In Vanguard, “Volkssturmgewehr” translates from German to “People’s Assault Rifle.” In-game, it’s described as “quick and mobile, this is the lightest automatic rifle, allowing great movement but with low control.”

Unlocked as the seventh assault rifle in the game, the Volkssturmgewehr has solid base stats. It flourishes with mobility, but as the game says, struggles with control. Thankfully, with up to 10 attachments available to equip on the gun, you can rein in its kick with just a few quick steps.

This is the best way to equip your Volkssturmgewehr in Vanguard.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 428MM 05V
  • Optic: Nydar Model 47

  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 45 Round Drums

Like most assault rifles, these attachments help increase things like recoil, range, and damage. Mobility can be sacrificed, especially with the Volkssturmgewehr, considering that it already has strong movement speed and the best mobility in class.

The optic is swappable with others, all dependent on personal taste. But the rest of these attachments are recommended for a specific reason. Some of them are quite high level, though, so stick with the grind at the beginning and level it up ASAP to grab these and turn it into a strong weapon in Vanguard.
