Sniping is a Call of Duty staple and it’s remained just as powerful in Vanguard. The game has a wide selection of powerful Sniper Rifles for you to use. Since launch, players have been able to use the Type 99, 3-Line Rifle, and Kar98k
We recommend going with the Kar98k since it’s the quicker option. This rapid rifle comes with plenty of firepower, and you can equip it to create the best quickscoping loadout in Vanguard Season 3.

As this is a quickscoping loadout, we’ll prioritize speed and accuracy when adding attachments. For the muzzle, we’ve gone for the L Brake for its +1 accuracy, along with the Krausnick 560MM LWS03K barrel which provides a healthy ADS boost.

We went with the M1913 Variable 4-8x optic as it gives us two valuable options to switch between with ease, while the Short Stock lets you move faster and negates a lot of ADS time.
The SMLE Pistol Grip is our underbarrel of choice, as it not only increases your Sprint-to-Fire time by 11% but also increases hip-fire accuracy by 4%.
The 8MM Klauser 3 Round Mag and Fabric Grip are perfect for quick reloading and improved ADS speed, while the Lengthened ammo type will really help you pack a punch when you hit your enemies. Finally, the Quickscope proficiency improves your accuracy after ADS, while Fully Loaded will keep you stocked up with ammo.
Best Perks & Equipment for quickscoping in Vanguard
- Perk 1: Ghost
- Perk 2: Radar
- Perk 3: Double Time
For Perk 1, Ghost is a solid choice as it keeps you hidden from Spy Planes, enemy intel, and Field Mics as long as you’re moving. You’ll be able to pull off some effective flanks with this Perk equipped.
If you prefer the traditional minimap where unsuppressed fire is shown, you can’t go wrong with the Radar Perk.
And finally, Double Time doubles your Tactical Sprint time and increases crouched movement, allowing you to quickly dart around the map to keep the element of surprise.
- Lethal Equipment: Gammon Bomb
- Tactical Equipment: No 69 Stun Grenade
For equipment, the Gammon Bomb is an effective Lethal as it explodes on impact. Then, to limit the enemies’ vision and movement, the No 69 Stun Grenade is perfect.
How to unlock Kar98k in Vanguard Season 3
The Kar98k is unlocked at Level 43 in Call of Duty: Vanguard. So, it takes some time to get your hands on this weapon and you’ll need to play through several matches to level yourself up.

Modern Warfare 2 fans beg devs not to add the “most annoying thing ever” from Vanguard
CoD fans have revealed which Vanguard feature they don’t want Infinity Ward to include in Modern Warfare 2’s release.
Modern Warfare 2 will feature a plethora of content when it arrives, and Call of Duty players are hoping that one “annoying” Vanguard feature won’t be included in the game.
As the game’s release date draws near, Call of Duty players have revealed what Vanguard content they don’t want to see appear, including one particular feature that has been heavily criticized.
MVP voting in Vanguard has been criticized because it stops the game and makes players watch animations. The Redditor claimed that whenever this pops up, they instantly shut the game off.
Mysterious-Aerie6654 stated: “I can’t believe anyone would think players would enjoy this. I can only play 1 game on Vanguard before I close it down for a few weeks. Seriously though, if MWII has MVP voting then I won’t buy it. That is how strongly I feel.”
Many of the commenters in the thread agreed with this, stating that Vanguard’s MVP voting isn’t fun to sit through and that the Modern Warfare 2 developers should not add this feature to the upcoming title.
According to one poll, 75% of Vanguard players want the removal of the MVP screen, and one user in the thread even described the system as the “most annoying thing ever” for making the in-game menu inaccessible when it pops up.
A few users felt that the MVP voting system can be integrated into the game in a less frustrating way if the Modern Warfare 2 developers are willing to make a few changes to how it works.
One suggestion was that rather than having everyone vote for the best player, the game should automatically put that up on the screen based on the most kills, most captured, most points, and highest K/D.
At the time of writing, Infinity Ward have not confirmed this feature for Modern Warfare 2, so it remains to be seen whether or not it will be in the Call of Duty title when it finally arrives. We’ll be sure to let you know if they announce MVP voting for the game.

Best Vanguard Zombies weapons to use in Season 4’s Shi No Numa
You’ll need the best weapons to survive Vanguard Zombies’ Shi No Numa, so here are the top five weapons you need in Season 4.
Vanguard Zombies has been given a welcome breath of life with Season 4’s round-based Shi No Numa remake. You’ll need the best weapons to survive, so here are the top five weapons in Vanguard Zombies.
After a poorly-received launch, Vanguard Zombies finally added a classic round-based experience with the Season 4 update. Shi No Numa has returned, bringing the Wunderwaffe Wonder Weapon and a new Main Quest Easter Egg.
Whether you’re looking to last as long as possible in Der Anfang or Terra Maledicta, or want to achieve the highest round you can in Shi No Numa, you’ll need the best weapons. While almost any weapon can be viable, we’re counting down the top five you should equip in Vanguard Zombies Season 4.
Top 5 best Vanguard Zombies weapons
With the right Covenants, the Panzerfaust Launcher will be able to decimate any zombie that comes at you in Vanguard Zombies thanks to its huge splash damage.
You’ll find the Panzerfaust pretty ineffective for the first few rounds, but keep visiting the Altar of Covenants until you equip the Legendary Death Blow, Explosives Expert, and Critical Expertise.
Combined, you’ll get more rockets back for any critical hits, you’ll get critical hits for body shots, and you’ll be completely immune to your Panzerfaust’s splash damage. With this, you can just run around and blow up any zombie in sight.
4. Whitley LMG
While it doesn’t have the same raw damage output as some of the other weapons on this list, its low recoil and high fire rate allow it to shred through Zombies extremely fast. It becomes especially powerful when Pack-a-Punched, so make sure you upgrade it as soon as possible.
3. Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle
The Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle will reward accurate Vanguard Zombies players with its headshots dealing incredibly high damage.
Equipped with the Death Blow Covenant, you’ll keep getting ammo back for every headshot you land, making up for its low magazine size. You may struggle when surrounded by hordes of the undead, but there are few weapons that’ll chew through a Sturmkreiger’s armor faster.
2. Combat Shotgun
The Combat Shotgun is the perfect weapon when starting out in Vanguard Season 4’s Shi No Numa thanks to its high damage and quick reload.
The Combat Shotgun deals devastating damage per shot, and thanks to its magazine, you’ll be able to reload almost instantly. With how luck-based finding the right Covenants can be,
It only gets better as the rounds go on and you start unlocking Covenants. Like all of the weapons on this list, the Death Blow Covenant is vital thanks to it keeping your ammo topped up at all times.
1. Einhorn Revolving
The Einhorn Revolving Shotgun is by far the best weapon you can use in Vanguard Zombies thanks to its devastating damage and high fire rate.
The Einhorn’s only drawback is its incredibly long reload, but that can be easily countered by picking up the Death Blow Covenant. With almost unlimited ammo and a semi-automatic fire rate, you’re completely set up for success and will make short work of any enemy that gets in your way.

When is Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded? Terminator crossover, Vargo-S & more
Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded is set to be the game’s next major update, so here’s everything we know so far including the possible start date
Vanguard Season 4 has arrived, but we’re never too far away from the next batch of new content. The next major update is Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded, so here’s everything we know about it so far, including the expected release date.
Vanguard Season 4 is in full swing, and players are still getting to grips with all of the new additions. The update came with a host of new weapons and even saw the return of the classic Shi No Numa map in Zombies.
Things never stay the same in CoD for too long, though, and Season 4 Reloaded is set to bring even more new content to the game. These mid-season updates tend to mean more new weapons, game modes, and weapon balancing changes, and Season 4 is expected to be no different.
Here’s everything we know about Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded so far, including when it will get underway.
- Expected Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded release date
- Vanguard Season 4 reloaded Vargo-S Assault Rifle
- Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded Terminator crossover
Expected Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded release date
Sledgehammer Games haven’t announced exactly when Season 4 Reloaded will begin, but we expect it to be during the week commencing July 25.
This date falls at the halfway point of Vanguard Season 4, so it seems likely that the mid-season update will drop around then.
We’ll be sure to update this section as soon as there is the official word from the developers.
Vanguard Season 4 reloaded Vargo-S Assault Rifle
While players were treated to both the Marco 5 and UGM-8 at the beginning of Season 4, there are still some announced new weapons that are yet to be added. The Push Dagger should drop in the coming weeks, whereas the Vargo-S Assault Rifle will likely headline Season 4 Reloaded.
New guns can often completely change the meta, so Vanguard players will be eager to get their hands on the prototype Cold War Vargo 52.
We’ll have to wait and see how the Vargo-S feels, but the devs have already said it has a “high-fire rate, steady aim through sustained fire, and a quick reload.”
Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded Terminator crossover
After initially teasing the crossover before the beginning of the new season, the Season 4 Batlle Pass announcement on the Call of Duty blog confirmed that Terminator cosmetics are coming in the mid-season update.
Both the T-800 and T-1000 Terminators will arrive as Store Bundles for players to purchase, although they will only be available for a limited time.
The T-800 is the iconic machine first played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the classic 1984 movie. Meanwhile, the T-1000 is a shapeshifter made from Mimetic Polyalloy liquid metal, most commonly associated with Robert Patrick in T2.
That was everything we know so far about Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded, we’ll be updating this page with any new announcements so be sure to check back for the latest information.
