All Vanguard weapons in Warzone Pacific will retain their 10 attachment customization option, unlike Modern Warfare and Black Ops weapons, which are designed with far fewer customization options in mind.
That doesn't necessarily mean these weapons will be broken or always better, but it does mean that Warzone players who choose them will have more options to fine-tune their loadouts to suit their needs.
The STG44 was one of Vanguard's flagship pre-season assault rifles, being both extremely popular and quite effective, so we have no doubt that it will pose a serious threat on the Caldera map as well.
If you want to make sure your first few days on the island will be victorious, check out the best STG44 class setup for Warzone Pacific Season 1.
Best STG44 Warzone Pacific Season 1 Loadout
Use these attachments for the best STG44 Season 1 loadout.
- Muzzle: F8 stabilizer
This will improve the accuracy and damage range of the weapon at the expense of sprint speed when firing and hip fire accuracy.
- Barrel: VDD 760MM 05B
This gun will add much needed stability by reducing the recoil of the STG44. Your ADS speed will be slightly reduced, but nothing alarming.
- Optical: Zeiss G16 2.5x
Our choice is Zeiss G16 2.5x, but you can also go for something like the ZF4 3.5x or the M38/Slate 2.5x. It really comes down to personal preference, but keep in mind that this is a mid-range build.
- Store: VDD 27 Accuracy
The VDD 27 Precision will help us with horizontal recoil control, further emphasizing our goal of minimizing recoil in this build.
- Sub-barrel: M1941 hand stop
We continue to improve recoil control while increasing weapon accuracy. This will reduce hip fire accuracy, but we don't have to worry about that with this class setup.
- Magazine: .30 Russe Court 30 Rnd
It increases bullet speed and range, as well as bullet penetration and damage. What's not to like?
- Ammunition type: Elongate
With its huge bonus to bullet speed, the extended ammo type is essential.
- Rear handle: Dotted handle
If the recoil reduction is not already enough, the Stippled Grip will help us recover from recoil faster as well as be more accurate at the start.
- Skill: sleight of hand
We like the faster reloads it provides, but this slot can be more open to change, and you can choose a different skill if there's something you particularly want to cover or think is your weakness.
- Pencil case: fully charged
You'll start the game with max spare ammo, a very useful kit in our opinion.
There you have it, the 10 attachments for the best STG44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1, and possibly one of the best class setups in the entire game right now.
There's nothing particularly standout about this build, we've molded it towards mid to long range effectiveness, it does insane damage and has high accuracy while being much easier to control compared to its vanilla version, thanks to the several attachments that we've added.
We think this build is probably the safest option to kick off Warzone Pacific Season 1, as you'll definitely find it useful in many situations, as it covers a wide range of possible combat scenarios you'll encounter on Caldera.
