The Type 100 is often overlooked in favor of the MP40, but players are now discovering its incredible power. Here are the attachment and Perks to create the best Type 100 loadout for Vanguard Season 2.

Aside from Season 1’s inclusion of the Welgun, Vanguard’s SMG meta hasn’t changed since launch. This has turned the Type 100 into an absolutely underrated monster of a weapon.

The two most popular Vanguard SMGs are without a doubt the MP40 and Welgun, but the Type 100 SMG has started making waves thanks to its incredibly fast time-to-kill.

We’ve put together the best attachments and Perks for a versatile, fast-killing Type 100 loadout.

Best Type 100 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Warubachi 134mm Rapid
  • Optic: Sakura Short Irons
  • Stock: Warubachi Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 40 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Fleet
  • Kit: Quick

This Type 100 is built to quickly dart around the map, taking down multiple enemies by surprise. To start, we’re going with the attachments that will make the Type 100 a menace at medium distances with the Warubachi 134mm Rapid, F8 Stabilizer, and 8mm Kurz 40 Round Drums.

These three attachments will make the Type 100 a highly versatile SMG as your bullets will continue to deliver incredible damage at greater distances.

Unfortunately, these attachments will reduce the Type 100’s ADS speed and movement speed, but the Warubachi Skeletal and Sakura Short Irons will make up for that. These attachments will still allow the Type 100 to feel like a fast SMG.

To keep it accurate, we’ve added the M1930 Strife Angled foregrip to allow you to stay on target when moving. The Lengthened ammo type will once again ensure that the Type 100 hits hard both at close-range and medium-range.

And finally, the Fleet Proficiency and Quick Kit will provide a boost to movement speed which will help counteract the attachments that reduce the Type 100’s speed.

Best Perks to use with Type 100 in Vanguard

  • Perk 1: Fortified
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Lightweight

For the first Perk, we’ve opted for Fortified. Explosive damage in Vanguard can prove incredibly annoying to deal with. With Fortified equipped you’ll be able to withstand explosive damage and continue to play as an aggressive SMG.

Next, Forward Intel will increase your mini-map size and show you exactly where enemies spawn. Controlling the map is extremely easy, and YouTuber JGOD even called it “completely broken.”

And finally, Lightweight will allow you to run faster, so you can quickly push enemy spawns to help your team control the map.

How to unlock the Type 100 in CoD: Vanguard

To unlock the Type 100 in Vanguard, you need to hit Level 39, which makes it one of the game’s later weapon unlocks.

This will likely take several hours, but you can use our guide on how to level up fast if you want to speed up the process.

Best alternatives to the Type 100 in CoD: Vanguard

If you haven’t unlocked the Type 100 yet or it isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty of other viable options. The Welgun is arguably one the most powerful SMGs in the game, and the Whitley LMG has been the most dominant Season 2 weapon in the game.


And that’s everything you need to be an absolute menace on Vanguard’s maps with the Type 100.

Modern Warfare 2 leak reveals editions & early PlayStation beta

Vanguard in-game files from the Season 3 Reloaded update have leaked Modern Warfare 2 edition options and open beta info.

Published

on

Data miners have discovered in-game files added to Vanguard with the Season 3 Reloaded update that provides information concerning Modern Warfare 2 editions and the open beta.

On May 24 the Season 3 Reloaded update for Vanguard went live, and while new content like the H4 Blixen and Sphere map is exciting, there was yet another surprise hidden in the update.

It turns out data miners have leaked in-game Vanguard files that provide information concerning Modern Warfare 2 editions. These files have shed light on what each edition could bring to the table, as well as which platform will get early access to the MW2 Open beta later this year.

While this information has not been confirmed by Activision, the following info concerning Modern Warfare 2 pre-order content was found in Vanguard’s in-game files:

Standard Edition content

  • Modern Warfare 2
  • Early access to open beta
  • Other items to be announced

Cross-Gen Bundle content

  • Cross-Gen version of Modern Warfare 2
  • Early access to open beta – first on PS4 & PS5
  • Other items to be announced

Vault Edition content

  • Early access to open beta
  • Battle Pass (1 Season) + 50 Tier Skips
  • Red Team Operator Pack – Ghost, Soap, Price, Farah Operators
  • FJX Cinder Weapon Vault
  • 10 hours 2XP, + 10 hours 2WXP
  • Ghost Legacy Pack – 12 Operator Skins & 10 Weapon Blueprints

It seems all three pre-order editions grant players early access to the open beta, and we’ll keep you posted once we know when pre-orders commence and when the beta will occur. The cross-gen bundle also confirms that MW2 will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

Another key piece of information revealed by this leak is that PS4 and PS5 players will receive access to the open beta first. We already know that PlayStation exclusivity will not last forever, once the Microsoft deal to acquire Activision officially goes through, but at the moment it is good news for PlayStation players.

You’ll have to discern which edition is right for you, but there’s no denying that the Vault Edition comes with a ton of interesting Operator and weapon cosmetics. In addition, the 50 Battle Pass Tier Skips and double weapon XP will be valuable as you attempt to level up early on.

Vanguard Season 3 has arrived at its halfway point, with the majority of players having had time to unlock the new Nikita AVT Assault Rifle and M1916 Marksman Rifle, and earn a few of the new Ranked Play rewards.

Season 4 is next-up, but before that update, Season 3 Reloaded has brought some new content. This update brings a new SMG and a new multiplayer map, so here’s everything we know including the full patch notes.

H4 Blixen SMG arrives in Vanguard Season 3 Reloaded

The H4 Blixen SMG will be the final of four Warzone and Vanguard Season 3 weapons to arrive following the midseason update. If you’re interested in testing the weapon, check out our guide on how to unlock H4 Blixen SMG in Vanguard.

The devs revealed that the weapon is a slow-firing SMG that performs incredibly well at medium-range. While fast SMGs tend to be preferred in Vanguard, the H4 Blixen could turn out to be a top Warzone weapon.

Vanguard Season 3 Reloaded brings Sphere map

Vanguard’s Season 3 update brought the chaotic Mayhem map, styled after a Godzilla-themed movie set, and the Season 3 Reloaded update is set to bring the Sphere map.

Sphere will take the action to an underground weapons lab hidden beneath a coal mine. It seems players will have to juggle between two floors of the map. On the top floor, players can find the remnants of a coal-mining village. Meanwhile, the secrets of the weapons lab are hidden underground on the bottom floor.

New Vanguard Operator Kim Tae Young

The third and final member of Task Force Harpy will be coming to Vanguard alongside the midseason update.

The new H4 Blixen SMG is her preferred weapon, which means you’ll want to enter the battle as Kim Tae Young if you want level up the weapon as fast as possible.

Vanguard players furious with lack of content in Season 3 Reloaded

While Warzone received a ton of Season 3 Reloaded updates, Vanguard players feel they’ve been completely ignored by the mid-season update.

Published

on

While Warzone has received a ton of game-changing content with the Season 3 Reloaded update, Vanguard has barely received anything and furious players feel like they’ve been ignored.

While Call of Duty games receive major content drops with the seasonal updates, there’s almost always a ‘Reloaded’ mid-season update that brings even more content, bug fixes, and balance tweaks.

Warzone players are delighted with Season 3 Reloaded’s huge content drop, bringing an Underground Transit System, new game modes, and more, but not long after feeling ignored by the Operation Monarch event, Vanguard players have been left disappointed with the lack of content.

Raven Software and Sledgehammer dropped the Season 3 Reloaded roadmap on May 23, revealing a ton of new content for Warzone. Players felt the Vanguard section was particularly sparse, with the Sphere map being the only piece of Vanguard-exclusive content.

Vanguard Season 3 Reloaded will also bring the new H4 Blixen SMG, a new Operator, and new bundles  — but these are all shared with Warzone. To compare, Black Ops Cold War Season 3 Reloaded brought the 80s Action Hero event, Standoff to multiplayer, Duga to multi-team modes, Zombies updates, and more.

Twitter user ‘xFleXy_’ shared the content discrepancy between Vanguard and Warzone, and said they’ve “never seen a COD so poorly supported.” This was shared on the Vanguard subreddit where players vented their frustration.

“How tf is this ok?” asked one user. “They don’t even try to hide the fact they do not care about the traditional multiplayer community. Warzone is their bread and butter, and we should absolutely be livid about this.”

“Why couldn’t they add a map/gamemode from COD WW2 or something?? I feel like that would be pretty cool,” suggested u/NebNegreb.

A handful of players commented that it’s only a mid-season update, but Cute_Cookie563 said: “factor in that the actual season 3 update last month was tiny (one map, 2 guns?) and in total barely nothing new has happened this season.”

Many of these players believe that Sledgehammer Games have given up on Vanguard and are hoping that Modern Warfare 2 will be chock-full of traditional multiplayer updates.
