Vanguard’s DP27 can be a lethal weapon of choice for players who like an LMG. Here are the best attachments and perks you can use for the Vanguard DP27.

Vanguard has an abundance of weapons for players to choose from. Whether you like SMGs, Assault Rifles, or even the Riot Shield; Vanguard has an option for you.

The Vanguard DP27 is a strong LMG option with great range and power, especially when combined with the following attachments and perks.

Best Vanguard DP27 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 604MM
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: ZAC S2M
  • Underbarrel: Mark IV Skeletal
  • Magazine: 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Mercury Silencer gives the DP27 some slight recoil control. This is definitely needed as the fire rate is surprisingly fast for an LMG. The Slate Reflector optic will also help you stay on target, especially as the iron sights aren’t the best.

Next, the ZAC S2M, Fabric Grip, and Mark IV Skeletal will all improve the Vanguard DP27’s ADS and sprint to fire speed. These attachments are vital, as the weapon is an LMG, so these stats definitely need boosting.

The Lengthened Ammo Type and Kovalevskaya 604MM barrel will increase the DP27’s bullet velocity. This allows the weapon’s bullets to hit the target faster.

Sleight of Hand is a must with this weapon, as you will find yourself reloading quite a lot thanks to the fast fire rate. Further, Fully Loaded will mean you spawn with full ammo, so you won’t have to worry about running out when on a killstreak.

Lastly, the 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans will give you even more ammo in a clip. This is great as you will be able to take out multiple enemies without even having to reload.

Best Perks to use with the DP27

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Piercing Vision
  • Perk 3: Lightweight

Ghost is a classic Call of Duty perk, and its benefits are obvious. Ghost will make you undetectable by Spy Planes, enemy intel, and Field Mics while moving. It will also reduce the effectiveness of Local Informants, which is one of the strongest Killstreaks in the game.

The next Perk is Piercing vision, which is great for LMGs in general. As you will likely be spraying through objects a lot with the DP27, this perk will highlight enemies you’ve suppressed for a short time. This is great for finishing kills through walls and smoke.

Lastly, Lightweight will counter the reduced movement speed caused by the LMG. This will keep you fast on your feet, allowing you to reposition effectively.

How to unlock the DP27 in Vanguard

In order to unlock the DP27, players must reach Level 18 in Vanguard’s Multiplayer.

Luckily this isn’t too high of a level, but some of the attachments and perks in the loadout are. If you want to level up fast, check out our guide.

Best alternatives to Vanguard’s DP27

The MG42 is another great LMG in Vanguard, but if you’re looking for something more close range, why not check out the M1928.

Portable Redeploy Balloon coming soon in Warzone Season 4

Warzone Season 4 will offer players another way to get around the map, with Portable Redeploy Balloons set to arrive later in the season.

Published

Warzone players are set to receive another way to get around Caldera in Season 4, with Portable Redeploy Balloons scheduled to arrive later in the season.

Warzone’s Caldera has undergone a major facelift for Season 4, with plenty of map changes designed to make it easier and more enjoyable to play. Despite that, the island is still huge, and getting around without a vehicle can be a frustrating experience.

One of the ways that Raven attempted to combat this issue was by taking inspiration from another battle royale. Apex Legends fans instantly recognized Warzone’s Redeploy Balloons, which allowed players to zip up a rope and get launched into the air.

Since their introduction in Season 2, these balloons have been in specific places that players needed to head to. That’s set to change later in Warzone Season 4.

Portable Redeploy Balloons will give players the chance to fly into the air at any time, as long as they have one of these useful tools in their inventory. They can be placed anywhere on the island, and will immediately allow for some great rotational movement.

They won’t hang around on the map forever though, as they will despawn after a certain amount of time, although the length of their existence hasn’t been confirmed just yet.

Players will also be able to destroy them, which could stop enemies from getting away, or stop opponents from following you.

Unfortunately, Portable Redeploy Balloons won’t be in Warzone with the Season 4 patch, with Raven confirming that they would arrive “later in season.”

It’s possible we may see this item in the mid-season update, but the developers didn’t give an exact release date, so as soon as we know we’ll be sure to update you.

Still, with the new Fortune’s Keep map, a Terminator crossover, and new Macro 5 and UGM-8 weapons, there’s plenty of new content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into in the meantime.

Vanguard players are sick of “similar” weapons after Season 4 roadmap reveal

Vanguard players have called for more variety in the post-launch weapons after seeing the roadmap for Season 4.

Published

on

Brand-new weapons have steadily been rolling out into CoD Vanguard with each new update. But after it was announced that Season 4 will add yet another SMG and LMG to the game, players are calling on the devs to mix it up a bit.

Vanguard Season 4 is set to drop on June 22, and it’s set to mark the return of classic Zombies map Shi no Numa, and the fan-favorite Gun Game mode. It’s also coming with two brand-new weapons on day one, with more to come later down the line.

The Marco 5 is a dual-wield SMG that emphasizes hip-fire, while the UGM-8 is a lightweight LMG that promotes mobility.

New weapons are always welcome, but some Vanguard players are tired of the devs adding similar guns in each update and have demanded more variety in later seasons.

Following the announcement of the Season 4 roadmap, which features Marco 5 SMG and UGM-8 LMG on launch day, Reddit user Theworldrotates posted to criticize the new weapons.

“We do not need another SMG. Back to back, we’ve gotten similar function LMGs,” said the OP. “How about a new Shotgun or Assault Rifle?”

They accompanied the post with a screenshot of some of the other weapons that have come since Vanguard’s release. The H4 Blixen, Armaguerra 43, and Welgun have all been added post-launch, all of which are close-range SMGs that “look similar and act similarly.”

Other commentators pointed out a number of iconic WWII-era weapons that are still missing from Vanguard’s roster that would work well as Battle Pass unlocks.

“Wtf are these guns? I want the FG-42 and the Springfield. And I’m pretty sure Arthur is holding a Lee-Enfield on the box art, lol,” said one Redditor.

“How about Lewis gun, M1 carbine, FG-42, Grease Gun, Lee Enfield, m1903 Springfield, M1941 Johnson, MG-15, MP-28, or even a Winchester lever-action?” replied another.

A new Assault Rifle is coming later in Vanguard Season 4 in the form of the Vargo-S. However, it’s hard to argue that SMGs, in particular, have dominated the post-launch content.

With a few more seasons left before the release of Moder Warfare 2 later this year, fans will be hoping that the developers look elsewhere and add a wider variety of classic guns.

PlayStation Plus games lineup: All PS Plus Extra & Premium titles

Sony have revealed the lineup of games that will be available with the new and improved version of PlayStation Plus.

Published

on

The PlayStation Plus subscription service will undergo various changes, and here’s a list of PS Plus games you can expect to have access to following the overhaul.

Throughout the months of May and June, Sony will be rolling out a revamped version of PlayStation Plus. The core concept for the service will remain unchanged but Sony are introducing subscription tiers to PS Plus.

This means the massive catalog of games available to PS Plus subscribers will depend on which of the three options you select. We’ll go through the different tier options below, and detail all the PS Plus games that will be available at launch.

PlayStation Plus changes & tiers explained

PlayStation Plus has always offered an all-encompassing service to those who subscribe. That’s all going to change as players will soon have the chance to choose between three different tiers. Essentially, you’ll be able to choose the tier that best suits your needs.

PlayStation Plus Essential is the lowest tier on offer and it is the option that is comparable to the current service. If you’re happy with your current PS Plus subscription and are not interested in new features, Essential is the way to go.

If you’re looking for more content like a massive library of games, then you’ll want to look into the Extra and Premium tiers. Extra will grant you access to a catalog of PS4 and PS5 games, while Premium will also add PS3, PS2, PSP, and PlayStation libraries to the mix.

To find out which tier is right for you and how much each tier costs per month you can visit the PlayStation blog that details the changes coming to PS Plus in the summer of 2022.

All PS Plus games list: Premium & Extra catalog

While the focus is definitely on PlayStation games whose studios are affiliated with Sony like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Uncharted, you’ll also be pleasantly surprised to see third-party titles available via PS Plus.

Games like Mortal Kombat 11, NBA 2K22, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are not out of reach for players who opt for PlayStation Plus’ Extra or Premium tiers. You’ll be able to access this incredible library of games seen below for a monthly fee.
