Best Gorenko loadout for Vanguard Season 1

Vanguard’s Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle is the most powerful Sniper Rifle in the game, and we have the best loadout, class, attachments, and perks to get the most out of it.



Gorenko Vanguard Season 1

The Gorenko Sniper Rifle is one of five new weapons coming to Vanguard in Season 1. Here are the best attachments and Perks to create the best Gorenko loadout.

Players can expect to get their hands on a ton of new content throughout Vanguard Season 1 including maps, Operators, and Perks.

Of course, Vanguard players will also be able to test out several new weapons. Five new weapons will make their way to Vanguard over the course of Season 1. One of these is the extremely powerful Gorenko Sniper Rifle

This Anti-Tank Rifle packs a punch and as its name suggests it is fully capable of penetrating sturdy defenses. These are the best attachments and perks to create the best Gorenko loadout.

Best Vanguard Gorenko class

Gorenko attachments
  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: 240MM ZAC Rapid
  • Stock: ZAC Custom Precision
  • Underbarrel: GF-59 Flashlight
  • Magazine: 13MM AM 10 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Focus
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

These attachments are meant to boost ADS speed and accuracy. Most Sniper Rifles in Vanguard are naturally slow to aim in. The Fabric Grip and 240MM ZAC Rapid increase movement speed and ADS speed. This will prevent you from getting caught in an unfavorable position. 

Meanwhile, the weapon’s noticeable recoil needs to be tamed. The F8 Stabilizer and Zac Custom Precision stock will contribute to stabilizing this weapon’s recoil. With these attachments, players will be able to lock in some important double kills. Increased damage range and accuracy will also come into play with these attachments. 

The GF-59 Flashlight is one of the most important attachments for the Gorenko. It will highlight enemy nameplates at a greater distance. This is essential for Sniper players who look to deal damage from a distance. 

The 13MM 10 Round Mags should ensure that you won’t require a reload too often. With 10 rounds at your disposal, you can cause a ton of destruction before needing to reload. Fully Loaded will give you all the ammo you’ll ever need. While FMJ Rounds will further increase the damage potential of this weapon by being more effective through walls.

Sniper players are usually easy targets due to their inability to move freely when aiming down sight. Focus will reduce flinch from enemy bullets ensuring that you nail your target when engaged in a gunfight.

Best Perks to use with Vanguard Gorenko

Gorenko best perks
  • Perk 1: Intuition
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Double Time

Intuition is one of two new Perks that have arrived in Season 1. This perk will alert players when enemies are nearby, even through walls. Sniper players often leave their backs wide open due to their focus on what’s ahead of them. This Perk will activate and alert Sniper players when an enemy is trying to flank their power position.

Forward Intel will let you know where to aim the Gorenko as it reveals enemy spawn locations. Lastly, Double Time will allow you to get to those power positions as quickly as possible. 

How to unlock Gorenko in Vanguard

Gorenko Vanguard unlock

Unlocking the Gorenko is a simple task. Players must reach Tier 31 in the Battle Pass in order to unlock the Sniper Rifle. Battle Pass progression increases by playing Vanguard and Warzone Pacific. 

As with most seasons, players who are not interested in grinding toward Tier 31 can purchase Battle Pass skips which will make unlocking the Gorenko easier. 

Best Vanguard Gorenko alternatives

While the Gorenko is powerful, it doesn’t necessarily suit fast players who aim to quickscope their way to success. If you’re looking for a more mobile Sniper Rifle, the Kar98k is an excellent choice. 

If you’re still looking for a long-range weapon but Sniper Rifles aren’t for you, check out the Automaton Assault Rifle

It will be interesting to see how the new weapons arriving in Season 1 stack up against the current weapons. The Gorenko’s damage range and power will likely make it an ideal choice for Warzone Pacific

Warzone’s frustrating demon gun glitch is back in Vanguard

Vanguard weapon camos are being plagued by the infamous demon gun glitch which fills the screen with ruined textures.



Demon Gun Glitch in Vanguard

The demon gun glitch is one the most infamous bugs in Warzone and now reports are coming in of it ruining the textures of weapon camos in Call of Duty Vanguard again.

Warzone Pacific players have had to repeatedly deal with the frustrating demon gun glitch that blocks their screens with distorted textures, making it impossible for them to accurately aim their weapons.

This glitch has popped up at complete random numerous times and is now causing problems in CoD Vanguard again, as players are reporting the textures on their weapon camos being reduced to polygons.

Reddit user ‘EPURON’ encountered this glitch when using a weapon camo that was part of the Godzilla vs King Kong event. They then shared a clip showcasing this in the Vanguard subreddit.

Throughout the clip, the textures on the weapon camo were glitching, and the Redditor was unable to see anything through the optic when aiming down sights. They described the glitch as “polygon madness.”

While the textures looked bad when aiming down sights, they looked even worse in the killcam that played after the player was taken out. At that point, the entire screen was blocked by the glitch.

EPURON explained in the comments that this is their first time encountering the Demon Gun Glitch, and others brought up the times they had to deal with it back when Vanguard first launched.

This glitch has become infamous among Warzone Pacific and Vanguard players since it pops up repeatedly to cause mayhem on their screens and still hasn’t been removed for good after multiple update patches.

Vanguard August 11 update patch notes: Dev Error & attachment exploit fixes

Vanguard’s August 11 update patch notes delivered bug fixes for an attachment exploit and a Dev Error issue in Season 4 Reloaded.



Vanguard Terminator skin update patch notes

Sledgehammer Games have provided a Vanguard update on August 11 that patched a weapon attachment exploit and fixed a Dev Error bug in Season 4 Reloaded.

Vanguard devs Sledgehammer Games continue to update the game and provide players with fresh content. In addition to a playlist update arriving on August 11, players were also treated to a new update that provided a fix to several of the game’s latest bugs.

The update covers both multiplayer and zombies game modes as certain bugs were hampering the fun. A particularly annoying Dev Error should no longer plague players following the August 11 Vanguard update.

Vanguard Dev Error & attachment exploit fixes

Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded

Vanguard Season 5 is fast approaching, but before we get a brand-new season of content with new weapons, maps, and Operators, Sledgehammer are dedicated to fixing current issues.

It seems an unintended exploit was allowing players to combine attachments from other weapons to achieve combinations that should not be possible. This would result in overpowered weapons running amok and the devs were quick to nerf the issue.

In addition, players will no longer have to deal with DEV ERROR 10308 that occurred on the USS Texas map.

Vanguard August 11 update patch notes



  • USS Texas 1945
    • Addressed an issue that caused DEV ERROR 10308 to occur.


  • Seasonal Challenges will no longer be marked as complete if the requirements are unmet.


  • Addressed an exploit that allowed players to achieve unintended Attachment combinations.



  • Vargo-S
    • Addressed an issue that prevented the Survivalist camouflage challenge from tracking when using specific magazine attachments.
  • Push Dagger
    • Addressed an issue that prevented the Plague Diamond and Dark Aether camouflage and challenge requirements from being visible in the loadout menu.


  • Addressed a rare issue where players could become stuck in spectator mode when joining a match in progress as the joined player leaves.

Activision apologize for using artist’s design in now canceled Vanguard & Warzone skin

Activision have scrapped an unreleased Warzone and Vanguard skin after using an artist’s work without permission.



Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded skins

Activision admitted to the major misstep of using an artist’s work without permission. The original art was to feature in an upcoming Vanguard and Warzone skin that has since been axed.

Major content drops like new seasons or midseason updates deliver weapons, maps, and changes to Call of Duty games, but they also tend to bring brand-new skins to enjoy. Vanguard and Warzone have seen some noteworthy skins that certainly got players talking.

After all, who could forget the Armored Titan, or Godzilla and King Kong skins? At the start of Season 4 Reloaded, players also received a new Terminator crossover. However, teasers for Season 4 Reloaded also hinted at a mysterious wolf-like skin.

After the wolf skin was teased in an official Call of Duty blog post, it was later inexplicably removed and replaced from the very same post. It turns out, Activision used content that did not belong to them in order to create the aforementioned skin.

When the wolf skin was first teased, it certainly generated a ton of buzz, or rather raised a ton of eyebrows. The anthropomorphic Operator definitely sticks out in a WWII-era Call of Duty game. Nonetheless, fans were excited at the prospect of running around as a wolf in Warzone.

Unfortunately, that idea won’t come to fruition as Activision have confirmed that they completely removed the skin from their planned content drop for Season 4 Reloaded.

It seems Activision overstepping bounds is the reason behind the skin’s cancelation.

An artist claimed that the wolf skin, also known as Samoyed skin, was stolen without their permission. In a strange turn of events, Activision has issued an apology, seemingly confirming the artist’s claims.

In a statement, Activision admitted that they “regrettably erred in our process and have removed this imagery from the game,” apologizing for the misstep.

While fans may be disappointed to lose their chance at slaying in a furry wolf skin, most would agree that if the artist’s claims are legitimate, the greater injustice was corrected as nobody should have their work stolen without credit.
