The Vanguard Type 11 is a viable mid-to-long-range weapon, especially with the right attachments and Perks. Here’s the best loadout for it.

The Type 11 is a strong LMG option for players in Call of Duty: Vanguard. In order to get the most out of the weapon, we’ve listed the best attachments and Perks to use with it.

Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s Multiplayer has a variety of maps to play on. Sometimes, picking the right weapon for the map you are playing is key to victory.

For those looking to gain an LMG option in their custom classes for those mid-to-long-ranged maps, the Vanguard Type 11 is a great choice. Lighter than most of the other LMGs in the game, the Type 11 gives players some versatility in playstyle.

Here are the best attachments and Perks to use with it.

Best Type 11 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Sakura 261mm
  • Optic: MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 90 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Firstly, as the Type 11 is the lightest LMG, we’ve chosen the F8 Stabiliser to improve the accuracy at the cost of added weight. The MK 3 Sunfilter and Stippled Grip combine nicely together to help improve the recoil and accuracy of the weapon.

The impact of added weight does decrease the sprint to fire speed and hip-fire accuracy, but we’ve countered that with the Sakura 261mm barrel and Removed Stock. These both increase your overall mobility and speed with the Type 11.

To further improve the aim down sight speed, we’ve used the Mark IV Skeletal underbarrel. This will ensure you are able to get your shots off quickly and accurately. The Lengthened ammo type will also help you get the first shot on your enemy, increasing the weapon’s bullet velocity.

Lastly, we have the 6.5mm Sakura 90 Round Mags, Fully Loaded kit, and Sleight of Hand proficiency. These together will not only allow you to reload less, with a whopping 90 round magazine, but also give you enough ammo to start and increase the slow reload time of the LMG.

Best Perks to use with Type 11 in Vanguard

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Radar
  • Perk 3: Double Time

You can’t go wrong with Ghost in Call of Duty Games, especially Vanguard. Most players are using the Field Mic and some sort of Spy Plane/Intel, so this Perk is vital for keeping you off the map.

For the second Perk, we’ve gone with Radar. As the Type 11 is more of a mobile LMG, you’ll be running around a lot with it. Radar will keep you clued up on where the enemies are, which is great for positioning.

Lastly, our third Perk is Double Time. Of course, the Type 11 is an LMG, but because of its versatility, you have the option to run and run. Double Time is great with this loadout as it allows you to reposition fast and effectively.

How to unlock the Type 11 in Vanguard

The Vanguard Type 11 LMG is unlocked by players when Level 37 is reached. This isn’t very early on, so if you want to use it, you’re going to have to grind.

Best alternatives to the Type 11 in Vanguard

If you’re looking for a more heavy LMG that can pack a punch at range, try out our best MG42 loadout.

Or, if you’re looking for the opposite, we have a great loadout for the Automaton, which is a great close-range Assault Rifle.

There you have it, that’s our best Vanguard Type 11 loadout with all the attachments and Perks you’ll need to dominate. For more, check out our piece on the secret pay to win weapon blueprint in Vanguard.

Vanguard August 11 update patch notes: Dev Error & attachment exploit fixes

Vanguard’s August 11 update patch notes delivered bug fixes for an attachment exploit and a Dev Error issue in Season 4 Reloaded.



Sledgehammer Games have provided a Vanguard update on August 11 that patched a weapon attachment exploit and fixed a Dev Error bug in Season 4 Reloaded.

Vanguard devs Sledgehammer Games continue to update the game and provide players with fresh content. In addition to a playlist update arriving on August 11, players were also treated to a new update that provided a fix to several of the game’s latest bugs.

The update covers both multiplayer and zombies game modes as certain bugs were hampering the fun. A particularly annoying Dev Error should no longer plague players following the August 11 Vanguard update.

Vanguard Dev Error & attachment exploit fixes

Vanguard Season 5 is fast approaching, but before we get a brand-new season of content with new weapons, maps, and Operators, Sledgehammer are dedicated to fixing current issues.

It seems an unintended exploit was allowing players to combine attachments from other weapons to achieve combinations that should not be possible. This would result in overpowered weapons running amok and the devs were quick to nerf the issue.

In addition, players will no longer have to deal with DEV ERROR 10308 that occurred on the USS Texas map.

Vanguard August 11 update patch notes



  • USS Texas 1945
    • Addressed an issue that caused DEV ERROR 10308 to occur.


  • Seasonal Challenges will no longer be marked as complete if the requirements are unmet.


  • Addressed an exploit that allowed players to achieve unintended Attachment combinations.



  • Vargo-S
    • Addressed an issue that prevented the Survivalist camouflage challenge from tracking when using specific magazine attachments.
  • Push Dagger
    • Addressed an issue that prevented the Plague Diamond and Dark Aether camouflage and challenge requirements from being visible in the loadout menu.


  • Addressed a rare issue where players could become stuck in spectator mode when joining a match in progress as the joined player leaves.

Activision apologize for using artist’s design in now canceled Vanguard & Warzone skin

Activision have scrapped an unreleased Warzone and Vanguard skin after using an artist’s work without permission.



Activision admitted to the major misstep of using an artist’s work without permission. The original art was to feature in an upcoming Vanguard and Warzone skin that has since been axed.

Major content drops like new seasons or midseason updates deliver weapons, maps, and changes to Call of Duty games, but they also tend to bring brand-new skins to enjoy. Vanguard and Warzone have seen some noteworthy skins that certainly got players talking.

After all, who could forget the Armored Titan, or Godzilla and King Kong skins? At the start of Season 4 Reloaded, players also received a new Terminator crossover. However, teasers for Season 4 Reloaded also hinted at a mysterious wolf-like skin.

After the wolf skin was teased in an official Call of Duty blog post, it was later inexplicably removed and replaced from the very same post. It turns out, Activision used content that did not belong to them in order to create the aforementioned skin.

When the wolf skin was first teased, it certainly generated a ton of buzz, or rather raised a ton of eyebrows. The anthropomorphic Operator definitely sticks out in a WWII-era Call of Duty game. Nonetheless, fans were excited at the prospect of running around as a wolf in Warzone.

Unfortunately, that idea won’t come to fruition as Activision have confirmed that they completely removed the skin from their planned content drop for Season 4 Reloaded.

It seems Activision overstepping bounds is the reason behind the skin’s cancelation.

An artist claimed that the wolf skin, also known as Samoyed skin, was stolen without their permission. In a strange turn of events, Activision has issued an apology, seemingly confirming the artist’s claims.

In a statement, Activision admitted that they “regrettably erred in our process and have removed this imagery from the game,” apologizing for the misstep.

While fans may be disappointed to lose their chance at slaying in a furry wolf skin, most would agree that if the artist’s claims are legitimate, the greater injustice was corrected as nobody should have their work stolen without credit.

We’re past the Season 4 halfway point of Call of Duty action, and there’s still plenty of time to level up, prestige, and unlock weapons before Modern Warfare 2. Here are the full dates for the next Warzone and Vanguard Double XP weekends.

XP has been a vital component of Call of Duty’s multiplayer for many years. It’s the quintessential upgrade mechanic that allows you to increase your in-game level and provide you access to better gear and attachments.

Vanguard and Warzone Pacific carried on from where Cold War and Warzone left off by giving players limited-time windows of opportunity to increase the XP they can earn.

Vanguard & Warzone Double XP dates

Call of Duty players can get Double XP by taking advantage of the Double XP promotional events that Activision put on.

Thanks to the Raven Software Trello board, we know when the next Warzone & Vanguard Double XP events are:

  • Double XP event – All platforms: Thursday, August 4 – Thursday, August 11
    • Double Weapon XP and Double Battle Pass XP

These special Double XP events are coming as part of Vanguard & Warzone’s Season 4 Reloaded. With major weapon buffs and nerfs, changes to the Fortune’s Keep map, and the new Vargo-S AR there is plenty of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

What time does CoD: Vanguard & Warzone Pacific Double XP start?

Here’s a full list of the usual Double XP event’s start time & dates in some of the key timezones:

  • PT – 10:00 AM
  • CT – 12:00 PM
  • ET – 1:00 PM
  • BST – 6:00 PM

These special Double XP events usually occur during a weekend, as it naturally gives players the most time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.

If you’re worried about slow progression for Vanguard and Warzone’s Battle Pass, the active Double XP event will no doubt give you a great boost to unlock all the Season 4 Reloaded rewards.
