Vanguard’s DP27 can be a lethal weapon of choice for players who like an LMG. Here are the best attachments and perks you can use for the Vanguard DP27.

The Vanguard DP27 is a strong LMG option with great range and power, especially when combined with the following attachments and perks.

Best Vanguard DP27 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 604MM
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: ZAC S2M
  • Underbarrel: Mark IV Skeletal
  • Magazine: 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The Mercury Silencer gives the DP27 some slight recoil control. This is definitely needed as the fire rate is surprisingly fast for an LMG. The Slate Reflector optic will also help you stay on target, especially as the iron sights aren’t the best.

Next, the ZAC S2M, Fabric Grip, and Mark IV Skeletal will all improve the Vanguard DP27’s ADS and sprint to fire speed. These attachments are vital, as the weapon is an LMG, so these stats definitely need boosting.

The Lengthened Ammo Type and Kovalevskaya 604MM barrel will increase the DP27’s bullet velocity. This allows the weapon’s bullets to hit the target faster.

Sleight of Hand is a must with this weapon, as you will find yourself reloading quite a lot thanks to the fast fire rate. Further, Fully Loaded will mean you spawn with full ammo, so you won’t have to worry about running out when on a killstreak.

Lastly, the 7.62x54MMR 105 Round Pans will give you even more ammo in a clip. This is great as you will be able to take out multiple enemies without even having to reload.

Best Perks to use with the DP27

  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Piercing Vision
  • Perk 3: Lightweight

Ghost is a classic Call of Duty perk, and its benefits are obvious. Ghost will make you undetectable by Spy Planes, enemy intel, and Field Mics while moving. It will also reduce the effectiveness of Local Informants, which is one of the strongest Killstreaks in the game.

The next Perk is Piercing vision, which is great for LMGs in general. As you will likely be spraying through objects a lot with the DP27, this perk will highlight enemies you’ve suppressed for a short time. This is great for finishing kills through walls and smoke.

Lastly, Lightweight will counter the reduced movement speed caused by the LMG. This will keep you fast on your feet, allowing you to reposition effectively.
