Launchers in Call of Duty: Vanguard certainly have their place as a secondary weapon in a multiplayer loadout thanks to their huge amounts of explosive damage against vehicles, Killstreaks, and players that get a little too close. As the start of Season 1 nears, one of the launchers available is the Panzerschreck, and it's capable of packing a deadly punch if accuracy can be maintained while using it.
Unlike the M1 Bazooka, the Panzerschreck fires 88mm explosive rounds and comes with a small viewing window to ensure it hits the intended target. In this guide, find the best Panzerschreck loadout to use in multiplayer.

How To Unlock The Panzerschreck
The process of unlocking this particular launcher is incredibly straightforward. Like every other weapon in the Vanguard arsenal, the Panzerschreck can be unlocked by levelling up. If the unlock level has remained unchanged since the beta, players can get their hands on it at Level 28.
The Best Panzerschreck Loadout in Vanguard
With no attachment slots available for the Panzerschreck, the key to succeeding with the launcher revolves around choosing the best Field Upgrade, Equipment, and Perks along with a precise primary weapon.
- ITRA Burst
This may be an unorthodox choice but the ITRA Burst assault rifle is incredibly accurate thanks to its burst-fire mechanism. For the best attachments to equip, check out our definitive ITRA Burst loadout guide.
- Perk 1: Ghost
- Perk 2: Tracker
- Perk 3: Tactician
Ghost conceals your location from any enemy Spy Planes patrolling the skies when you're moving while Tracker highlights any nearby footsteps which is perfect for tracking down some opposition to destroy with the Panzerschreck. For our third Perk, Tactician is a strong choice thanks to its ability to restock tactical equipment every 30 seconds. Never running out of stun grenades sounds like a good idea.
- Lethal: Thermite
- Tactical: Stim
Thermite is a heavily underrated piece of lethal equipment in multiplayer. The fierce fire that burns once it hits a surface is capable of weakening an opponent in the blink of an eye, leaving them easy pickings for the Panzerschreck to finish off. With a lot of bullets flying all over the place, it can be very easy to get caught in the crossfire but with Stim instantly regenerating whenever needed, you can stay in the action for longer.
- Supply Box
Due to a lack of ammunition for the Panzerschreck, the Supply Box is a must if you plan on using the launcher for a prolonged stint of a match. Place it on the ground to get access to more rockets to deal even more damage!
