Vanguard’s 3-Line Rifle is a weapon players may be familiar with, featuring back in Call of Duty: WWII. With the correct loadout, this rifle can really damage at long and medium ranges, so here are the attachments and perks you should use to make the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout.

Sledgehammer Games released their Vanguard Multiplayer Beta for PlayStation users over the weekend, allowing Call of Duty fans to get to grips with the new game finally.

Along with Kill Streaks and Field Upgrades, players also got to use a variety of weapons.

One of those Vanguard weapons is the 3-Line Rifle, a fast-firing sniper rifle that is every long-range specialist’s dream, especially when using the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout.

Call of Duty: Vanguard 3-Line Rifle
  • Barrel: 270MM Voz Carbine
  • Stock: ZAC Custom MZ
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
  • Proficiency: Awareness
  • Kit: Deep Breath

First off, the 270MM Voz Carbine barrel will help improve the ADS speed for the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout, allowing players to get off those quickscopes while also retaining accuracy. Although this attachment does decrease some of the weapon’s damage range, we’ve found the pros outweigh the cons.

The ZAC Custom MZ stock will further improve the 3-Line Rifle’s ADS speed while also providing additional recoil control, allowing players to stay on target and get shots off as quickly as possible.

Moving on, we have the Leather Grip, a great attachment for this sniper as it provides even more ADS speed. These ADS speed improvements are vital for the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout, as the weapon is extremely heavy and slow without them.

As for Ammo Type, we’ve opted for the FMJ Rounds, which, if you didn’t know by now, improve bullet penetration so that you can retain damage through walls and other objects.

When it comes to the proficiency slot, Awareness will help greatly when using the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout, or any long-range weapon in general, as it allows you to spot enemies more efficiently.

Lastly, but definitely not least, we have the Deep Breath kit, which allows players to hold their breath longer and stabilize their aim when looking down the sights and getting off more precise shots with the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle.

Best Perks to run with Vanguard 3-Line Rifle

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: High Alert
  • Perk 3: Overkill

For the first perk, Ghost is a must for any sniper loadout, as staying hidden and keeping your location discreet is vital when it comes to holding down lines of sight with a sniper.

For the second perk, High Alert is a great option, as it will give you information on when an enemy is aiming at you, allowing you to relocate or locate the enemy and take them out.

Our final Perk choice is Overkill, which allows the player to carry two primary weapons, an important Perk for a sniper loadout as it means you can carry an SMG or something close range for when you find yourself in a more close-quarters engagement.

How to unlock the 3-Line Rifle in Vanguard

The Call of Duty: Vanguard beta gives you immediate access to the 3-Line Rifle through one of the default classes.

As we’re currently in the Beta stage for Vanguard, the full release may be slightly different, and players might have to do more to unlock the weapon, but we’ll update this guide as more information is released.

Best alternatives

Some alternatives to the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout are the Kar98k, another great sniper choice, or the MG42, a strong long-range LMG that can do serious damage at range.

There is no doubt that players will find success against their opponents if they step onto the battlefield with the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout equipped.

Best Kar98k loadout for CoD: Vanguard Beta

The Kar98k is a lightning-quick Sniper Rifle in Call of Duty: Vanguard, so here’s the best loadout with Perks and attachments to fit.

Call of Duty: Warzone players will be instantly familiar with the Kar98k Sniper Rifle, and it’s now back in its natural habitat in World War II. So we’ve assembled an excellent class for you to gear up and dominate with, so here’s our best Kar98k Vanguard loadout.

With the level of variation and accessibility in CoD: Vanguard’s maps, there will be plenty of opportunities for players to snipe.

If the 3-Line doesn’t take your fancy, or you want to default to a recognizable gun, then the Kar98k should do the trick nicely. It’s a rapid rifle with plenty of firepower, so here’s how you can make it a formidable beast in Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Beta.

Best Vanguard Kar98k loadout

Best Vanguard Kar98k Gunsmith loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: MK. 2 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 560MM LWS03K
  • Optic: M1913 Variable 4-8x
  • Stock: Short Stock
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8MM Jaeger 3 Round Mag
  • Ammo Type: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Shrouded
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

For the best Vanguard Kar98k loadout, we will slap on the MK. 2 Stabilizer as it peps up the weapon’s range. To complement the muzzle, the Krausnick 560MM LWS03K gives us what we’re looking for with a healthy ADs boost while not sacrificing other stats too much.

Our ideal optic is available early on in the M1913 Variable 4-8x as it gives us two valuable options to switch between with ease, and given that we want a lot of speed for the best Vanguard Kar98k loadout, the Short Stock negates a lot of that ADS time while boosting movement speed.

The Heavy Foregrip is perfect for quickening spring-to-fire time to get your eye down that sight faster when using the best Vanguard Kar98k loadout. The 8MM Jaeger 3 Round Mag reduces the ammo capacity slightly but boosts ADs and reload quickness. The Subsonic rounds keep you mostly minimap-free when firing.

Attaching the Fabric Grip boosts our vital speed stats more so. Shrouded is an OP proficiency that can reduce sniper glint, and to finish off, Fully Loaded gets us one starting bullet back per mag.

Best Perks to run with Kar98k class

high alert perk in cod vanguard
  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: High Alert
  • Perk 3: Overkill

Ghost will possibly be the most selected Perk in all of Call of Duty: Vanguard as it can effectively shield you from Spy Planes, Field Mics, and Enemy Intel.

We’ve opted for High Alert for the best Vanguard Kar98k loadout as sniping is fun and a sneaky practice, but if you’re taking enemy players out, they’ll be hunting you. High Alert will inform you that you’ve been seen and perhaps give you a second or two to retreat before your Killstreak is ended.

Finally, Overkill is a necessity for a Sniper Class such as this one. No matter how good the Kar98k is, you’re going to get into some sketchy situations out on the battlefield, so you’ll need a solid AR or SMG to swap to quickly.

How to unlock the Kar98k

Like other weapons in the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta, most players have not had the chance to line up some headshots with the Kar98k as it’s not unlocked straight away.

With the knowledge that most Warzone players main a Kar as their Sniper Rifle, Sledgehammer Games decided to make the Kar98k a Level 26 unlock for Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best alternatives

If sniping and long-range gameplay isn’t your style, or you need a great gun to make Overkill worth it, then we have some options besides the best Vanguard Kar98k loadout.

The Volk is another fast and furious choice weapon selection for players to choose, or if you want something quite solid overall, the MG42 slays as well.

And that’s the best Vanguard Kar98k loadout you can run! Be sure to check out all of the other weapons, Perks, and Killstreaks in the Beta.

CoD: Vanguard will continue the tradition of field upgrades, and here is a list of the ones available for players to dominate their enemies with in-game.

As far as loadouts go in Call of Duty, players can take an awful lot with them onto the battlefield. In addition to two firearms, players can mix and match three perks and two pieces of equipment.

On top of that, CoD: Vanguard is once again allowing the use of Field Upgrades. These are a unique third piece of equipment that operates on a cooldown. Where players have a limited number of lethal and tactical equipment, Field Upgrades are limitless and give players various bonuses.

Here are all of the CoD: Vanguard Field Upgrades currently known.

CoD: Vanguard Field Upgrade List

As of right now, there are only five known Field Upgrades in CoD: Vanguard. More upgrades could be added later or when the game releases. For comparison, Warzone and Cold War currently have seven Field Upgrades.

Supply Box

The classic Field Upgrade, Supply Box, returns in Vanguard. The player throws down a box of Ammo and Equipment for themselves and their teammates to stock up. The box explodes when shot. This Field Upgrade has a fast recharge rate.

Armor Plates

Armor Plates function exactly as they do in Warzone. Using this Field Upgrade allows players to take a few more hits before going down. Armor Plates have a fast recharge rate.

Goliath

A new Field Upgrade, Goliath, is a small remote-control bomb that players can drive like the RCXD. Players can drive this tank-like bomb for 30 seconds before it explodes, or they can detonate it early. The Goliath has a slow recharge rate.

Field Mic

The Field Mic operates as a stationary UAV that covers a minimal area. Players who pass through this area will be marked on the map briefly. The Field Mic has a slow recharge rate.

Dead Silence

Another classic Field Upgrade, Dead Silence, allows you to move without making any noise. This buff only lasts for a few seconds but should be long enough for you to flank your enemies without being detected. Dead Silence has a fast recharge rate.

Call of Duty Vanguard Goliath Field Upgrade

Those are all of the CoD: Vanguard Field Upgrades that are in the game currently. However, there will likely be more to come in the future. Although, players aren’t too happy with some of the ones we have now.

Call of Duty: Vanguard will introduce various changes to the franchise’s beloved Multiplayer, one of which seems to be a crazy amount of weapon camos.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has enjoyed its final weekend of the Multiplayer Beta, which officially ends September 21. Not only have players be able to get to grips with the new gameplay, but players have also been able to provide the developers with feedback.

Having said that, players weren’t able to explore the weapon camos on the Beta, but recent leaks have revealed some pretty exciting details.

Although the game is set to release on November 5, players already have a decent idea of what to expect on launch, thanks to the Multiplayer Beta and the recent leaks surrounding the game’s Zombies mode.

Now, thanks to renowned Call of Duty leaker ZestyCODLeaks, some pretty interesting details surrounding camos in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Call of Duty: Vanguard camos leak

The leak claims that Vanguard will have “an ASTOUNDING 245 camos PER GUN.” This is an unprecedented number when it comes to Call of Duty Camos, and it’s by far the most seen in the Multiplayer experience, if it’s true.

Using the STG-44 and MG42‘s code in the Vanguard files, Zesty has worked out that each gun will have around 245 camos.

The leak also suggests that there will be Mastery, CDL, and perhaps even Zombies camos for every weapon in Vanguard.

Lastly, Zesty also revealed the type of challenges players can expect to be doing when trying to unlock this insane amount of camos.

Like previous Call of Duty games, players will be doing challenges like crouch kills, assists, and kills with no attachments. However, some new challenges in the mix will take advantage of the Point Blank mechanic, which allows players to shoot out of cover.

That’s all for this CoD: Vanguard camos leak. For more, check out all of the Vanguard Ammo Types players can use to dominate their enemies.
