The Cooper Carbine Assault Rifle was added to Vanguard with the Season 1 patch, and we’ve got the best attachments and Perks to create the best Cooper Carbine loadout.

Vanguard Season 1 brings a host of fresh content to the game, with new operators, multiplayer maps, and Warzone’s Pacific Caldera map.

As always, a new season also means new weapons, and players will receive five new ways to kill enemies over the course of the first season. One of the most interesting of these is the Cooper Carbine, an Assault Rifle with the characteristics of an SMG.

Whether this gun will completely change the meta remains to be seen, but we’ve got the best attachments and perks to create the ultimate Cooper Carbine loadout.



Best Vanguard Cooper Carbine class

Vanguard Cooper Carbine loadout
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: 22″ Cooper Custom
  • Stock: Cooper 54RS
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: .30 Carbine 45 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This loadout is perfect for aggressive players. The Recoil Booster will give your gun an improved fire rate, while the 22″ Cooper Custom barrel and Cooper 45RS stock improves accuracy and controllability. The Carver Foregrip is great for recoil control, while we picked the .30 Carbine 45 Round Mags but feel you can choose whichever you prefer.

The Hollow Point ammo type increases damage to limbs, which is lethal when combine with the Vital proficiency for increased critical hits. Pine Tar Grip helps with recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, while we always prefer the Fully Loaded kit to start with max ammo.


Best Perks to use with Vanguard Cooper Carbine

Lightweight perk in Vanguard
  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Lightweight

For Perks, Ghost is always a great option, keeping you hidden from enemy Spy Planes. Forward Intel is also useful, as it lets you know where the enemy is spawning and can help you create traps for enemies.

Finally, the Cooper Carbine is great for aggressive players, so teaming it with Lightweight will help you get around the map quickly.


How to unlock Cooper Carbine in Vanguard

Unlocking the Cooper Carbine is pretty straightforward. Players just need to reach Tier 15 of the Warzone & Vanguard Season 1 Battle Pass.

This can be accomplished by playing matches, or by purchasing the Premium Battle Pass, which unlocks the first 20 Tiers immediately.

Best Vanguard Cooper Carbine alternatives

While the Cooper Carbine does feel like an SMG, some players will prefer the MP-40 or Type 100, which are the best guns in the class.

If you feel like you are not able to kill enemies at range, the Automaton or STG-44 are the best Assault Rifles in Vanguard.


The Cooper Carbine is new to the game, so we’re not sure how it stacks up against other weapons. If you want to see how your favorites perform, check out our full Vanguard best weapons ranked list.
