The Type 11 is a strong LMG option for players in Call of Duty: Vanguard. In order to get the most out of the weapon, we’ve listed the best attachments and Perks to use with it.

Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s Multiplayer has a variety of maps to play on. Sometimes, picking the right weapon for the map you are playing is key to victory.

For those looking to gain an LMG option in their custom classes for those mid-to-long-ranged maps, the Vanguard Type 11 is a great choice. Lighter than most of the other LMGs in the game, the Type 11 gives players some versatility in playstyle.

Here are the best attachments and Perks to use with it.

Best Type 11 loadout attachments

Type 11 in Vanguard
  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Sakura 261mm
  • Optic: MK 3 Sunfilter
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 90 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Firstly, as the Type 11 is the lightest LMG, we’ve chosen the F8 Stabiliser to improve the accuracy at the cost of added weight. The MK 3 Sunfilter and Stippled Grip combine nicely together to help improve the recoil and accuracy of the weapon.

The impact of added weight does decrease the sprint to fire speed and hip-fire accuracy, but we’ve countered that with the Sakura 261mm barrel and Removed Stock. These both increase your overall mobility and speed with the Type 11.

To further improve the aim down sight speed, we’ve used the Mark IV Skeletal underbarrel. This will ensure you are able to get your shots off quickly and accurately. The Lengthened ammo type will also help you get the first shot on your enemy, increasing the weapon’s bullet velocity.

Lastly, we have the 6.5mm Sakura 90 Round Mags, Fully Loaded kit, and Sleight of Hand proficiency. These together will not only allow you to reload less, with a whopping 90 round magazine, but also give you enough ammo to start and increase the slow reload time of the LMG.

Best Perks to use with Type 11 in Vanguard

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

You can’t go wrong with Ghost in Call of Duty Games, especially Vanguard. Most players are using the Field Mic and some sort of Spy Plane/Intel, so this Perk is vital for keeping you off the map.

For the second Perk, we’ve gone with Radar. As the Type 11 is more of a mobile LMG, you’ll be running around a lot with it. Radar will keep you clued up on where the enemies are, which is great for positioning.

Lastly, our third Perk is Double Time. Of course, the Type 11 is an LMG, but because of its versatility, you have the option to run and run. Double Time is great with this loadout as it allows you to reposition fast and effectively.
