Best Vanguard G-43 loadout

Although a semi-auto Tactical Rifle, Call of Duty: Vanguard’s G-43 can be turned into a full-auto monster with the right attachments. Here’s are the attachments and Perks you need to make the best G-43 loadout.

The Gewehr 43 is a classic WW2 weapon, and Vanguard’s G-43 lives up to the name. Although it’s a powerful semi-auto Tactical Rifle, it can be converted to full-auto with the right attachments.

Here are the best attachments and Perks to maximize the G-43’s potential in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best Vanguard G-43 loadout attachments

Best Vanguard G-43 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Wyvern 570MM Full-Auto
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Fitzherbert Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8MM Klauser 20 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Proficiency: Tight Grip
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This Vanguard G-43 loadout takes advantage of the Wyvern 570MM Full-Auto barrel to become a rapid-fire monster, competing with Assault Rifles and even SMGs at close-range.

We’ve opted for the MX Silencer to improve the G-43’s accuracy, reducing the bloom mechanic’s effect. Then, the fan-favorite Slate Reflector for a clear picture when aiming.

You’ll want to be snappy and accurate with the G-43, so the Fitzherbert Reinforced barrel vastly improves your ADS speed and initial accuracy. Then, the Tight Grip Proficiency and Carver Foregrip will make sure it stays accurate when maintaining fire too.

You’ll find that the G-43 runs out of ammo rather quickly, so we’ve added the 8MM Klauser 20 Round Mags to give you some extra bullets. And the Lengthened ammo increases the bullet velocity, making the rapid-fire feature even more powerful.

And finally, the Pine Tar Grip further improves recoil control, and the Fully Loaded Kit ensures you have plenty of ammo.

Best Perks to use with the G-43 in Vanguard

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Demolition

To start, we’re going with the Ghost Perk. There will be a ton of Spy Planes deployed over the course of a match, and as long as you’re moving, Ghost will keep you hidden.

Next, we’re going with Forward Intel which is arguably broken. It shows exactly where an enemy spawns, allowing you to rush them before they expect it.

And finally, Demolition gives you an extra piece of lethal equipment and tells you exactly where it’s going to go.

How to unlock the G-43 in Vanguard

Best alternatives to Vanguard G-43

There are plenty of viable alternatives to the G-43. The STG44 is already making waves for its two-shot potential, and we’ve called the Automaton the best gun in the game.

JGOD reveals Vanguard weapons you need to rank up before Warzone Pacific Caldera

Call of Duty expert JGOD has revealed the 10 weapons he think will make up Warzone’s meta when Pacific Caldera releases.

JGOD and Warzone Pacific

Warzone’s new Pacific Caldera map will release in a matter of days, and players are already thinking about a possible weapon meta. Call of Duty expert JGOD has been doing the same thing and picked out 10 weapons players should rank up before December 8.

Vanguard has now been out for almost a month, and players have been unlocking and ranking up weapons ever since. We already know that Vanguard’s weapons will be added to Warzone, meaning players can use them on the new Pacific Caldera map.

Warzone’s meta regularly changes, and we expect Vanguard Season 1 to bring an enormous change. Now, CoD expert JGOD has picked out 10 guns he thinks players should rank up before the update.

The YouTuber has used a few key characteristics to come up with this list: fire rate, ease of use, recoil, and magazine capacity to determine damage-per-mag. While some weapons may have a great time-to-kill, they may fall short in one of the sections above.

JGOD mostly picked out SMGs as weapons to level up, as their fast rate of fire makes them extremely viable. Of course, some assault rifles also made the list, while he also picked out some LMGs to use too.

JGOD’s 10 Vanguard weapons to level up for Warzone

The 10 Vanguard weapons you need to level up are:

  • Automaton
  • Volk
  • PPSH-41
  • Sten
  • M1928 Tommy
  • Type 100
  • MG42
  • DP27
  • Type 11
  • G-43
  • 1911
  • Machine Pistol

In terms of weapons that JGOD would prioritize, the Automaton seems like a good shout to become a meta weapon, as it has a high rate of fire, low recoil, and the biggest magazine size in its class.

Of course, we’ve seen in the past that guns that do well in multiplayer don’t necessarily perform in Warzone, so be prepared to see a shock weapon dominate the meta.


In the meantime, check out our best Vanguard guns ranked list to make sure you’re using the most powerful weapons in the game.

Dev Error 5537 is a particularly frustrating glitch that is keeping Call of Duty: Vanguard players from enjoying the game, and here’s how you can get around this error code.

CoD: Vanguard brought plenty of fun new content after its release on November 5, but players have also reported a few problems such as overpowered killstreaks and teleporting Attack Dogs.

There is also an error code that many fans have encountered known as dev error 5537, which is crashing the game and frustrating the Vanguard community. However, there are a few ways to get around this problem.

How to fix CoD: Vanguard dev error 5537

CoD: Vanguard players encounter the dev error 5537 while changing their Operator’s appearance in the multiplayer menu. When this happens, the game crashes without saving the changes to the outfit.

It’s unclear why this happens and Sledgehammer Games have yet to implement an official fix for this glitch. The good news is that there are different methods you can use when trying to fix this error.

Verify the CoD: Vanguard game files

If you encounter this error in Call of Duty: Vanguard on PC, then the problem could be that one of the game files is corrupted. You can figure out if this is the case by verifying the game files.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Launch the Battle.net client
  2. Select Vanguard, and head to Options
  3. Click Scan and Repair
  4. Wait for the scan to finish

If the game files are corrupted then you can implement the fixes recommended by the scan, although this could happen automatically. Once that’s done, restart the game and see if the error remains.

Update the graphics driver

You might be seeing this error message because the Operator skins menu is too much for your system’s graphics driver. In order to get around this problem, you should try updating it and then playing again.

Here’s how to update the graphics driver:

  1. Download and install Driver Easy
  2. Run the software, and select Scan Now
  3. Wait for the scan to complete
  4. Install the crommended updates
  5. Restart CoD: Vanguard

Avoid changing your Vanguard Operator’s outfit

If all else fails, you can just avoid altering your Operator’s outfit appearance and wait for Sledgehammer Games to implement a proper fix for the problem in a future update patch.

This isn’t the most convenient option so hopefully, the other methods will have resolved the issue for you. The developers will need to look into Dev Error 5537 and come up with a proper solution.

Vanguard Zombies trick to level up weapons fast

Reddit user justanotherguy_171 highlighted this trick in CoD: Vanguard subreddit. It involves loading into a game and playing for a couple of minutes before leaving. Then you can into Vanguard Zombies to repeat this.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Hop into a game of Vanguard Zombies
  2. Eliminatie all the zombies in starting spawn
  3. Enter a “Transmit” portal and take out all 21 zombies
  4. Leave the game and rejoin to repeat these .

This will let you earn approximately 2,000 weapon XP in just a couple of minutes of playing. You can keep repeating this process to earn about 60,000 an hour and even more during Double XP weekends.

Vanguard’s primary weapons have 70 levels and you take around 150,000 XP to complete. This can several hours and players have previously complained about the “ridiculous” slow weapon XP leveling in the game.

This neat trick will help speed up that process quite a bit. Call of Duty data expert JGOD JGOD, who has maxed out all his Vanguard weapons, has also made use of this strategy in Vanguard.

This tactic will be extremely useful when trying to unlock the Atomic camo, so be sure to try it out the next time you hop into the game to earn some serious weapon XP quickly.
