Vanguard’s two-shot Type 100 loadout exposed by streamers

Vanguard type 100

Call of Duty players are quickly realizing that the Type 100 may soon dethrone the MP-40 for the title of best Submachine Gun in Vanguard. 

Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Type 100 is mowing down the competition. Much has been said about Vanguard’s fast TTK, and the Type 100 is yet another Submachine Gun that could abuse this mechanic. 

Upon Vanguard’s release, players immediately flocked to the MP-40 as the preferred Submachine Gun. The Type 100 may have it beat in terms of raw power. Equipped with the correct attachments, this weapon has the potential to two-shot kill your enemies.

This isn’t the first occasion of broken weapons appearing in Vanguard. During its launch week, many players complained about an STG 44 loadout that similarly killed enemies in two shots. 

Suffice it to say, most Vanguard players are upset at the fact that Assault Rifles and Submachine Guns have two-shot kill potential.

As far as the Type 100 is concerned, there is a pretty big catch to producing the two-shot kill. In order to perform a two-shot kill, players must target an enemy’s chest.

In the video below, you can clearly see the Type 100 eliminating a target with two shots to the chest from some distance. 

Weapon balancing has been a hot topic of conversation lately. Vanguard is still in its early days and we can expect the weapon meta to be affected by future patches. 

Sledgehammer has already addressed certain bug and glitch fixes in their most recent patch. Vanguard players should expect a patch to address weapon balancing sometime soon.
