Warzone expert Isaac ‘IceManIsaac’ Hamilton has revealed which Vanguard weapon is the best Assault Rifle choice in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

The Warzone Pacific meta underwent major changes after the Season 4 Reloaded update brought a plethora of weapon balancing changes, and now players are looking for the best guns to use.

Call of Duty pro IceManIsaac was examining the new medium-range meta and then revealed which surprising Vanguard Assault Rifle players should try out after dropping into a game of Warzone.

According to IceManIsaac, the STG44 Assault Rifle is an “old meta that has come back with vengeance,” as many professional players are now using the weapon in their tournament loadouts.

He praised the weapon’s recoil, TTK, and movement speed, which make it extremely viable for eliminating enemies quickly during medium-range engagements. IceManIsaac then revealed the best loadout for the weapon.

IceManIsaac’s STG44 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop 
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip 
  • Perk 1: Nerves of Steel
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

IceManIsaac’s loadout focuses on bringing the STG44’s recoil under control with the help of the VDD 34S WeightedM1941 Hand Stop, Hatched Grip, and Nerves of Steel. Once the weapon is more accurate, the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x can be used to take out distant enemies

The 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags will give you enough enemies to eliminate them all. The Lengthened ammo type will buff bullet velocity so you can instantly shred through your foes. Finally, Fully Loaded ensures that you have the max amount of ammo.

With these attachments equipped, you’ll be able to dish out some serious pain extremely fast with the STG44. So, be sure to try this loadout when dropping into Caldera, Fortune’s Keep, or Rebirth Island.
