Quickscoping is an essential part of any Call of Duty game, but you need to have the right class to make it a truly effective option. He’s everything you need to create the best Vanguard quickscoping loadout, including attachments, perks, and more.

Sniping is a Call of Duty staple and it’s remained just as powerful in Vanguard. The game has a wide selection of powerful Sniper Rifles for you to use. Since launch, players have been able to use the Type 99, 3-Line Rifle, and Kar98k

We recommend going with the Kar98k since it’s the quicker option. This rapid rifle comes with plenty of firepower, and you can equip it to create the best quickscoping loadout in Vanguard Season 3.

As this is a quickscoping loadout, we’ll prioritize speed and accuracy when adding attachments. For the muzzle, we’ve gone for the L Brake for its +1 accuracy, along with the Krausnick 560MM LWS03K barrel which provides a healthy ADS boost.

We went with the M1913 Variable 4-8x optic as it gives us two valuable options to switch between with ease, while the Short Stock lets you move faster and negates a lot of ADS time.

The SMLE Pistol Grip is our underbarrel of choice, as it not only increases your Sprint-to-Fire time by 11% but also increases hip-fire accuracy by 4%.

The 8MM Klauser 3 Round Mag and Fabric Grip are perfect for quick reloading and improved ADS speed, while the Lengthened ammo type will really help you pack a punch when you hit your enemies. Finally, the Quickscope proficiency improves your accuracy after ADS, while Fully Loaded will keep you stocked up with ammo.

Best Perks & Equipment for quickscoping in Vanguard

Vanguard Perks

Best Perks

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

For Perk 1, Ghost is a solid choice as it keeps you hidden from Spy Planes, enemy intel, and Field Mics as long as you’re moving. You’ll be able to pull off some effective flanks with this Perk equipped.

If you prefer the traditional minimap where unsuppressed fire is shown, you can’t go wrong with the Radar Perk.

And finally, Double Time doubles your Tactical Sprint time and increases crouched movement, allowing you to quickly dart around the map to keep the element of surprise.
