Best Vanguard Lienna 57 loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Frei 432mm Shrouded

We’ve built the best Vanguard Lienna 57 loadout to boost its fire rate and almost completely remove its recoil. We’ve kicked off the loadout with the Recoil Booster Muzzle to increase its fire rate and the Frei 432mm Shrouded Barrel to counter the Muzzle’s recoil increase.

Optic choice is down to you but we’ve opted for the Slate Reflector for a clear picture at all ranges. Next, combining the Naukmann GMK-2 Stock and M1941 Hand Stop will almost completely remove any recoil the Lienna has.

These attachments are necessary to use the 5.6mm 36 Round Mags as they hurt the Lienna’s accuracy to increase its damage and range. Using Lengthened Ammo will improve its ranged effectiveness even further.

All of these attachments make this Lienna 57 loadout rather slow so the Fabric Grip helps with ADS speed and sprint to fire time. Finally, Tight Grip ensures it remains accurate when holding the trigger and Fully Loaded gives you all the ammo you need.

Best Lienna 57 loadout Perks & Equipment

Forward Intel Perk in Vanguard
  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Ninja
  • Lethal Equipment: Mk2 Frag Grenade
  • Tactical Equipment: No69 Stun Grenade

Like most Vanguard loadouts, the Lienna 57 benefits from the classic combination of both Ghost and Ninja. You’ll be completely hidden from enemy UAVs and you can safely move around the map without your footsteps giving away your position. We’ve also equipped Forward Intel to see exactly where the enemy team is spawning.

For Equipment, the Mk2 Frag Grenade is perfect for chucking into objectives, and a well-placed No69 Stun gives you information and slows down enemies it hits.
