Best Vanguard G-43 loadout attachments

Best Vanguard G-43 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Wyvern 570MM Full-Auto
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Fitzherbert Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8MM Klauser 20 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Proficiency: Tight Grip
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This Vanguard G-43 loadout takes advantage of the Wyvern 570MM Full-Auto barrel to become a rapid-fire monster, competing with Assault Rifles and even SMGs at close-range.

We’ve opted for the MX Silencer to improve the G-43’s accuracy, reducing the bloom mechanic’s effect. Then, the fan-favorite Slate Reflector for a clear picture when aiming.

You’ll want to be snappy and accurate with the G-43, so the Fitzherbert Reinforced barrel vastly improves your ADS speed and initial accuracy. Then, the Tight Grip Proficiency and Carver Foregrip will make sure it stays accurate when maintaining fire too.

You’ll find that the G-43 runs out of ammo rather quickly, so we’ve added the 8MM Klauser 20 Round Mags to give you some extra bullets. And the Lengthened ammo increases the bullet velocity, making the rapid-fire feature even more powerful.

And finally, the Pine Tar Grip further improves recoil control, and the Fully Loaded Kit ensures you have plenty of ammo.

Best Perks to use with the G-43 in Vanguard

Next, we’re going with Forward Intel which is arguably broken. It shows exactly where an enemy spawns, allowing you to rush them before they expect it.

And finally, Demolition gives you an extra piece of lethal equipment and tells you exactly where it’s going to go.
