Vanguard’s 3-Line Rifle is a weapon players may be familiar with, featuring back in Call of Duty: WWII. With the correct loadout, this rifle can really damage at long and medium ranges, so here are the attachments and perks you should use to make the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout.
Sledgehammer Games released their Vanguard Multiplayer Beta for PlayStation users over the weekend, allowing Call of Duty fans to get to grips with the new game finally.
Along with Kill Streaks and Field Upgrades, players also got to use a variety of weapons.
One of those Vanguard weapons is the 3-Line Rifle, a fast-firing sniper rifle that is every long-range specialist’s dream, especially when using the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout.
Best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle Gunsmith loadout attachments
- Barrel: 270MM Voz Carbine
- Stock: ZAC Custom MZ
- Rear Grip: Leather Grip
- Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
- Proficiency: Awareness
- Kit: Deep Breath
First off, the 270MM Voz Carbine barrel will help improve the ADS speed for the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout, allowing players to get off those quickscopes while also retaining accuracy. Although this attachment does decrease some of the weapon’s damage range, we’ve found the pros outweigh the cons.
The ZAC Custom MZ stock will further improve the 3-Line Rifle’s ADS speed while also providing additional recoil control, allowing players to stay on target and get shots off as quickly as possible.
Moving on, we have the Leather Grip, a great attachment for this sniper as it provides even more ADS speed. These ADS speed improvements are vital for the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout, as the weapon is extremely heavy and slow without them.
As for Ammo Type, we’ve opted for the FMJ Rounds, which, if you didn’t know by now, improve bullet penetration so that you can retain damage through walls and other objects.
When it comes to the proficiency slot, Awareness will help greatly when using the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle loadout, or any long-range weapon in general, as it allows you to spot enemies more efficiently.
Lastly, but definitely not least, we have the Deep Breath kit, which allows players to hold their breath longer and stabilize their aim when looking down the sights and getting off more precise shots with the best Vanguard 3-Line Rifle.
Best Perks to run with Vanguard 3-Line Rifle
- Perk 1: Ghost
- Perk 2: High Alert
- Perk 3: Overkill
For the first perk, Ghost is a must for any sniper loadout, as staying hidden and keeping your location discreet is vital when it comes to holding down lines of sight with a sniper.
For the second perk, High Alert is a great option, as it will give you information on when an enemy is aiming at you, allowing you to relocate or locate the enemy and take them out.
Our final Perk choice is Overkill, which allows the player to carry two primary weapons, an important Perk for a sniper loadout as it means you can carry an SMG or something close range for when you find yourself in a more close-quarters engagement.
