Call of Duty expert WhosImmortal has revealed which underrated Vanguard Assault Rifle is the perfect weapon choice for the new Fortune’s Keep map in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Warzone Pacific Season 4 brought a change of scenery with the addition of the Fortune’s Keep map, and players have been wondering which weapons are most effective on this brand-new island.

Warzone expert WhosImmortal showcased some of the most powerful weapon loadouts that you can utilize on this map, and the best one is actually a Vanguard Assault Rifle that’s vastly underrated.

According to WhosImmortal, the AS44 Assault Rifle is an amazing choice on Fortune’s Keep because of its solid TTK and impressively quick fire rate. The TTK can be maximized with the right attachments to make the weapon work like a Warzone SMG.

However, this would increase the weapon’s recoil, so WhosImmortal went for a solid mid-range weapon build instead. He revealed which attachments you can use to create the best AS44 loadout on Fortune’s Keep.

WhosImmortal’s Warzone AS44 loadout for Fortune’s Keep

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 615mm
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Kovalevskaya Custom
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50-round mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip 
  • Perk: Gung-Ho
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

WhosImmortal’s AS44 loadout starts off by boosting the weapon’s accuracy and effective damage range with the MX Silencer muzzle and Kovalevskaya 615mm barrel. The muzzle has the added benefit of keeping you off the map.

The M1941 Hand Stop underbarrel, Polymer Grip, and Kovalevskaya Custom all provide accuracy buffs. You can then equip the G16 2.5x optic to take advantage of the improved precision and pick off enemies from a distance.

The 7.62 Gorenko 50-round mags will grant you plenty of ammo to eliminate multiple enemies, and Lengthened will boost your bullet velocity, allowing you to secure kills insanely fast.

Fully Loaded ensures that you start off with the maximum amount of ammo while Gung-Ho will allow you to fire your weapon, use equipment, and call in scorestreaks while sprinting.

This weapon currently has a low pick rate of 0.58 on WZRanked, and WhosImmortal described the AS44 as an “experimental” choice. However, it’s still extremely effective and worth trying out when you land in Fortune’s Keep.
