The STG44 has already proved to be one of Vanguard’s best weapons, and FaZe star Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson has revealed the perfect “two-shot” loadout to dominate multiplayer lobbies.

Call of Duty: Vanguard offers almost 40 weapons for players to rank up and unlock the elusive Atomic camo for. The classic STG44 is the first Assault Rifle you unlock, and it’s already gained a reputation as one of the best in the game.

FaZe Swagg has been dropping V2 Rocket nukes with the STG, so he showed off the best possible STG44 loadout for dominating multiplayer matches.

Faze Swagg said he built his Vanguard STG loadout with the help of a pro-player, and it “kills in two shots.” With this build, he effortlessly dropped a Nuke and got almost 130 kills on Hotel Royal.

Here are all the attachments in FaZe Swagg’s “two-shot” STG44 loadout:

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD 760MM 05B
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Underbarrel: M3 Ready Grip
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 30 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: On-Hand

FaZe Swagg built this STG to two-shot enemies in the chest, thanks to the combination of the .30 Russian Short 30 Round Mags and Vital Proficiency. The magazine increases its range and damage, and then the Vital Proficiency allows it to deal headshot damage when hitting the upper chest.

For the rest of the build, Swagg used attachments to increase its accuracy and range. The VDD 760MM 05B barrel further increases its effectiveness at distance, and the Lengthened ammo gives it much more bullet velocity.

The Mercury Silencer, Stippled Grip and VDD 34S Weighted stock further increase accuracy and the M3 Ready Grip improves ADS speed, making the gun faster.

And finally, he runs the Slate Reflector sight for close-range precision, and the On-Hand Kit to use equipment quicker.

And that’s everything you need to recreate FaZe Swagg’s STG44 loadout and chase those V2 Rockets yourself.
