There is a wide range of pistols to choose from in Call of Duty Vanguard, with each of them possessing a variety of characteristics that make them the best secondary weapon to use in multiplayer. One handgun that is proving extremely popular is the Klauser, armed with a semi-automatic firing mechanism and described as "more effective at range than other pistols."
With strong mid-range performance and impressive mobility levels, the Klauser could well be the best pistol in the entire game. With that said, here are the best Klauser attachments to equip and the best Klauser loadout to use.
How to Unlock
The Klauser is the penultimate pistol to unlock in Vanguard multiplayer. The pistol becomes available once Level 35 has been reached meaning it may take a while to get hold of. To speed up the process, use some Double XP Tokens to get your hands on it as quickly as possible.
The Best Klauser Attachments in Vanguard
As the Klauser will act as a secondary weapon in the loadout, it's important to maximise stopping power and accuracy to guarantee the kill on any opponent that's been weakened by your primary weapon or to deal plenty of damage if you find yourself low on ammo.
- Muzzle: No. 3 Rifle Brake
- Barrel: Fitzherbert 200mm BL
- Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
- Trigger Action: Rapid Action
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
- Proficiency: Brace
- Kit: Quick
As with most pistols in Vanguard, all ten attachment slots don't need to be filled to upgrade it. The Rifle Brake, Stippled Grip, and Brace Proficiency ensure that initial accuracy levels are at their highest, making it very easy to land those opening shots effectively. For a slight boost to the Klauser's fire rate, the Rapid Action Trigger allows you to compete with any weapon in close-quarters combat.
The Best Klauser Loadout in Vanguard
Once the attachments have been equipped, it's time to focus on filling out the rest of the loadout to guarantee success on the battlefield. By selecting the best Perks, Equipment, and Field Upgrade, racking up kills with the Klauser has never been easier.
- Perk 1: Ninja
- Perk 2: Tracker
- Perk 3: Double Time
This set of Perks suits the Klauser's qualities perfectly. Ninja silences your footsteps to avoid alerting any opposition to your location while Tracker highlights any nearby footsteps in red, making it very easy to track down any nearby enemies. Last and by no means least is Double Time. With double the length of Tactical Sprint, hurtling around the map at breakneck speed has never been easier. Just remember to move slower when heading round a corner where an enemy could be lurking.
- Lethal: Thermite
- Tactical: Stim
Thermite is proving extremely popular in Vanguard thanks to its fiery explosion that depletes the health of anyone nearby in seconds. If the Thermite doesn't score a kill, finish the job with a few shots from the Klauser. As you'll be up close and personal with the opposition on a regular basis, Stim is essential to stay alive for longer. Use it when on the verge of death to regenerate your health as fast as possible.
- Armor Plates
With plenty of close-range encounters likely to take place, the extra protection provided by the Armor Plates can often be the difference between scoring your next Killstreak or being sent back to your spawn point. The recharge rate is slow so be sure to use them where there's plenty of action.
The Best Klauser Blueprint in Vanguard
The Klauser has yet to receive a blueprint but as soon as it does, we will be sure to update this guide with the best one to use and how to unlock it.
Is the Klauser Good in Vanguard?
The short answer is yes. I found myself easily outgunning several opponents with this Klauser build and even scoring the odd elimination from longer distances. If you want the best pistol for your loadout, then give the Klauser a go!
