Although there's not a lot of content arriving in the Season 3 Reloaded update for Vanguard, the arrival of the H4 Blixen submachine gun (SMG) is a significant addition to the ever-expanding arsenal of weapons. While the Season 3 Reloaded patch notes take care of any bug fixes, all eyes are on the new SMG and how it performs.
Despite featuring a slower rate of fire compared to other SMGs in the category, the H4 Blixen is capable of eliminating a player with three bullets which gives it an incredibly fast time to kill.
Thanks to the Gunsmith, there's a huge variety of attachments to select in order to improve its performance even further. With that said, find the best H4 Blixen Vanguard loadout along with the best attachments to use in this guide!

|Underbarrel||SMLE Pistol Grip|
|Magazine||9mm 72 Round Mags|

This particular set of attachments improves all areas of the H4 Blixen, allowing you to tame the tricky recoil pattern and maintain focus on your intended target.
Best H4 Blixen Vanguard Attachments
We decided to take inspiration from the MP40 and adapt the build to improve recoil levels as well as expand the existing ammo capacity. Here are the best H4 Blixen Vanguard attachments to use in multiplayer.
- Muzzle: Strife Compensator
- Barrel: Jönsson 9" RMK
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: Bergström MB
- Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
- Magazine: 9mm 72 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Proficiency: Fleet
- Kit: Quick
This combination of attachments tames the recoil enough so you can control the pattern easily. The 72 round magazine is arguably the star of the show, enabling you to eliminate huge numbers of opposition without the need to reload. For some additional mobility, the Fleet and Quick proficiency improve movement and sprint speed, giving you the ability to navigate the map as fast as possible.
Best Vanguard Perks and Equipment to Use With H4 Blixen
With the best H4 Blixen attachments ready to go, we can build the rest of the loadout using a combination of Perks and Equipment that will improve performance. Here's what we recommend.
- Fortified (Perk 1)
- Forward Intel (Perk 2)
- Double Time (Perk 3)
This set of attachments covers all bases. Fortified provides resistance to incoming explosives while Forward Intel instead of Radar allows you to see where the opposition is spawning thanks to the red squares on the mini-map.
Last and by no means least is Double Time. The increase in Tactical Sprint length makes navigating the map extremely easy and maximises any mobility advantages you have when using the H4 Blixen.
Is The H4 Blixen Good in Vanguard?
After a few matches, I can safely say that the H4 Blixen is the best post-launch gun in Call of Duty Vanguard. Its incredible mobility combined with immense power makes it surprisingly versatile at longer distances without losing any familiar SMG characteristics.
It excels at close-quarters alongside dealing plenty of damage in mid-range combat meaning it can contend with the MP40.
