FaZe Swagg shows off “broken” Vanguard PPSH-41 loadout

FaZe Swagg has unveiled his loadout for the PPSH-41 SMG in Call of Duty: Vanguard, claiming it as “broken.”

FaZe Swagg PPSH-41 loadout

The fan-favorite PPSH-41 SMG returns in Call of Duty: Vanguard, and FaZe Swagg believes he has the best loadout for it.

Vanguard has a wide array of SMGs to choose from. The MP40 has been trending a lot recently, but there’s another classic Call of Duty weapon that just might take its place.

The PPSH-41 returns in Vanguard, but it is quite different from the Cold War variant. FaZe Swagg’s recent video showcased this weapon, as well as what attachments you can use to make it “broken.”

FaZe Swagg’s “broken” Vanguard PPSH-41 loadout

faze swagg shows off PPSH
  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: ZAC 300MM
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Kovalevskaya Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8MM Nambu 71 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Tight Grip
  • Kit: Quick

Let’s start with the Mercury Silencer, as this will not only keep your bullets silenced, but also help with recoil control. To counter the reduction in damage range, the Lengthened Ammo Type will increase bullet velocity.

Next, the ZAC 300MM barrel, Carver Foregrip, Tight Grip, and Stippiled Grip will all combine to improve the weapon’s recoil control, recoil recovery, and hip-fire accuracy.

The 8MM Nambu 71 Round Mags will help you take down multiple targets without having to reload. This is especially essential as the Vanguard PPSH-41 has an extremely fast fire rate.

To increase your mobility with this close-ranged beast, you’re going to want the Quick kit and Kovalevskaya Skeletal stock. These will make you faster with the weapon so that you can stay on the move and gun enemies down.

This is the loadout that FaZe Swagg is using for “one of the most popular guns of all time.” Unlike the previous variants, the Vanguard PPSH-41has an “insanely fast fire rate,” making it one of the best SMGs in the game.

The PPSH-41 is a monster up-close, as FaZe Swagg says it is “absolutely bizzurk,” killing enemies extremely quickly. Players will have to grind for this weapon though, as it is unlocked at Level 51.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has finally introduced a round-based map with Season 4’s reimagining of Shi No Numa. There’s another complicated Main Quest to complete, so here’s a step-by-step guide to the Easter Egg.

After Black Ops Cold War Zombies’ success, Treyarch returned to develop Vanguard’s Zombies mode and continue the Dark Aether storyline. However, with a lack of classic features and a new non-round-based format, players slammed the mode for its “embarrasing” lack of content.

The devs added many classic features with Season 2’s Terra Maledicta, but players were still desperate to see round-based return. It finally has with Season 4’s Shi No Numa, and brought a brand-new Main Quest Easter Egg with it.

Here’s a full guide to building the new wonder weapon, completing the Main Quest Easter Egg, and beating the boss.

How to complete Vanguard Zombies Shi No Numa Easter Egg

Like any Call of Duty: Zombies Easter Egg, players will need to complete a series of complex objectives to solve the Main Quest such as finding objects around the map and building the Wonder Weapon.

  • Read more:

Thanks to YouTuber MrDalekJD, we’ve got the full breakdown of how to complete the Shi No Numa Easter Egg.

Wunderwaffe in Shi No Numa

Build the Wunderwaffe DG-2 Wonder Weapon

  1. Head through the Flogger Courtyard and open up the Fishing Hut, then pick up the Weapon Barrel on the shelf right of the door.
  2. Go to Comm Room Exterior and find the generator, then insert the Weapon Barrel.
  3. Head inside the Comm Room itself and follow the prompt to ‘Check Radio’ to the right of the door.
  4. Go back to the generator and finish the round, then complete the Defend the Radio Tower objective.
  5. After this is done, collect the Weapon Barrel from the generator. Then, head back to the radio and pick up the Charged Vacuum Tube.
  6. Go through to the other room inside the Comm Room area and collect the Electrical Fuse Part from a table.
  7. Find the Storage Hut and spend 1000 Points to activate the trap. It will malfunction, so wait around and insert the Electrical Fuse. Once it works, funnel zombies through the trap until it’s fully charged.
  8. Play until Round 15 where Zabala will spawn inside the main hut. Lead her to the Tesla Machine in the Excavation Room and try to let her lightning attack hit it until you get the prompt to pick up the Charged Vacuum Tube beside it.
  9. Head back to the Storage Hut and craft the Wunderwaffe DG-2 at the bench behind the trap.

Collect the Cypher Wheel Parts & start the Ceremony

  1. After you’ve loaded into Shi No Numa, follow the on-screen prompts to open the door in either the Comm Room or Storage and head to the Dig Site.
  2. Find the Cypher Wheel Parts (glowing circle objects):
    • On a table by a bunk bed in Dormitory
    • On the table in front of the Pack-A-Punch at the Dig Site
    • On the table to the left of the Max Ammo Box in Doctor’s Quarters
  3. Head back to the Doctor’s Quarters Exterior and stand in front of the glowing Monolith in front of a tree.
  4. Allow a Boom Schreier to run in front of the Monolith and kill it at the right time to blow away the vines.
  5. Press the interact button to insert the Cypher Wheels into the Monolith.
  6. Head to one of the red stones at the edge of the Doctor’s Quarters Exterior area and Start the Ceremony. If you’re playing co-op, each player will need to interact with a different one at the same time.
  7. Look out for glowing blue Zombies, let them approach the island the Monlolith is on, and kill them with the Wunderwaffe. If you don’t kill enough, simply play until the next round and try again.
Flogger Trap in Vanguard Zombies Shi No Numa map

Collect Zombie Blood & find Mirror Fragments

  1. Activate the Flogger Trap and head into the Flogger Courtyard, letting the trap fling Zombies towards the deactivated Perk Fountain. Once enough Zombies have been killed, you’ll actually have to drink the Zombie Blood.
  2. Using the temporary speed boost from the blood, find the red orb in either the Mess Hall or spawn room. Follow the red orb until it stops, and then pick up the first Mirror Fragment. However, you’ll need to do it again if the blood effects wear off before you pick it up.
  3. Drink the blood again, then find the map inside the War Room. Look for the X over a location, then head there and look for the mirror piece (you might need to shoot it down).

Follow & shoot glowing blue orbs

  1. Ensure you have everything you need for the fight ahead.
  2. Head back to the Dig Site POI and place the Mirror Fragments at the altar in the middle.
  3. Follow the prompt to energize the podium. If playing co-op, each player will need to interact with a different podium.
  4. Keep an eye on the glowing blue orb as it floats into the air and flies towards one of the four huts. Chase after the blue orb and look for it outside the map, shooting it three times as it relocates.
  5. Make your way back to the Dig Site and follow the prompt to Summon Echo.

Defeat Echo in Shi No Numa Zombies

  1. After the boss fight has begun, look for the glowing blue zombies again. Allow them to reach the bottom level of the dig site and kill them with the Wanderwaffe.
  2. Once enough glowing blue zombies have been killed, a large bubble will form over the area. Make sure you’re inside and once Echo enters the bubble with you, deal as much damage to her as possible until she becomes immune.
  3. The second stage will begin which is exactly the same as step #1, except you’ll be using the Wunderwaffe to kill glowing blue Boom Schreiers instead of regular zombies. Once you’ve killed enough, stay inside the bubble and keep wailing on Echo until she becomes immune again.
  4. Allow the glowing blue Sturmkriegers to reach the lower level, and kill them with the Wunderwaffe until the bubble appears again. One last time, batter Echo with everything you’ve got until she’s dead.
  5. You’ll get the end cut scene and some rewards such as a unique Calling Card.

And that’s everything you need to do to complete Vanguard Zombies’ Shi No Numa Easter Egg!
