The Volk hasn’t received the fanfare that other weapons have in Vanguard, and yet it still absolutely ruins the opposition. Find out how to make the best Call of Duty: Vanguard Volk loadout with complete attachments and Perks.

Vanguard has a ton of interesting and varied weapons for players to try out. Not only that, but the return of the 10-attachment Gunsmith system makes for a lot of different loadouts.

Since the Volk is a brand new weapon to CoD, many players are likely going to want to try it out. With that being said, here’s our best Volk Assault Rifle loadout in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best Vanguard Volk Gunsmith loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Krausnick 428MM 05V
  • Optic: State Reflector
  • Stock: Reisdorf 22V Adjustable
  • Underbarrel: MK6 Para
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 45 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Defender

The perfect starter attachment is the F8 Stabilizer muzzle as it sacrifices less important attributes to increase range and decrease recoil. Whereas the Krausnick 428MM 05V is the best barrel as it also helps range and recoil.

Our Optic choice has to be the State Reflector. It’s just so clean and wide, offering tremendous visibility, and the Residorf 22V Adjustable boosts the vital gun stats.

The MK6 Para retrieves some of that lost ADS speed, the additional firepower of the .30 Russian Short 45 Round Drums is too good to pass up, and Subsonic rounds keep you hidden on the map.

A go-to attachment for many guns is the Stippled Grip as it improves recoil and centering at no cost, Sleight of Hand helps us reload our .30 Russian Short 45 Round Drums a bit quicker, and Defender can lock down even more precise shots.

Best Perks to run with Vanguard Volk

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Radar
  • Perk 3: Tactician

Ghost is a perfect Perk One pick in Call of Duty: Vanguard as its ability to hide you away from Spy Planes, Field Mics, and Enemy Intel is too valuable to pass up.

Potentially the most effective Perk in Vanguard is Radar, as it helps to sniff out any enemies firing weapons on the minimap that ordinarily wouldn’t show up.

Our Volk loadout has a lot of ammo and rounds to use, so it might be beneficial to go for Tactician for quicker equipment restocks. This will allow you to drop more MK V Gas grenades and Molotovs.

Best alternatives to Vanguard Volk

Vanguard has more than enough options to keep the gameplay interesting, and we have picked out one or two that should help you to shake things up.

If you want consistency and one of the top meta picks, then you can never go wrong with the all-around beast that is the best MP-40 loadout. If you want something a bit different, then the MG42 is an underrated monster of a weapon that can definitely cause some serious damage.
