Best Type 100 Vanguard Loadout

With several submachine guns (SMG) to choose from in Call of Duty Vanguard, choosing the very best one to use can be rather complicated, especially since each of the six SMGs feature very different characteristics. One of them that is beginning to appear in the loadouts of players is the Type 100. With Season 3 on the horizon, this SMG has come close to usurping the MP40 as the best SMG in Vanguard.

Armed with minimal recoil levels and impressive mid-range capabilities, Type 100 outperforms other SMGs in this area, meaning that you don't necessarily need to get up close and personal with the opposition to achieve success. With that said, find the best Type 100 attachments to equip and the best Type 100 loadout in this guide!

How To Unlock

As this SMG is one of several that's part of the base arsenal, simply reach Level 39 to get your hands on the SMG and begin working your way through the ranks to unlock the huge range of attachments that are on offer.

Best Type 100 Attachments in Vanguard

Having tested numerous combinations in a bid to counter the sluggish aim-down sight time, we came across this particular build which allows you to react to any oncoming opposition as quickly as possible.

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Warubachi 134mm Rapid
  • Optic: Sakura Short Irons
  • Stock: Warubachi Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 40 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Fleet
  • Kit: Quick

This attachment combination may look unassuming but the increases in ADS speed are much more noticeable when it comes to zooming in on a target. The Warubachi Skeletal and Stippled Grip are widely responsible for this boost, while the rest of the loadout focuses on overall levels of stability to ensure nothing hiders your accuracy when firing upon a target.

Best Type 100 Vanguard Perks and Equipment

Once you've prepared the Type 100 attachments, don't forget to fine-tune the rest of the loadout to maximise your slaying ability. Everything from the best Perks, Equipment, and Field Upgrades can increase numerous elements of your gameplay, including levels of awareness and more opportunities to deal more damage.


  • Fortified (Perk 1)
  • Forward Intel (Perk 2)
  • Double Time (Perk 3)

Fortified increases explosive resistance which is handy considering the huge number of grenades that will head your way during a match. Forward Intel is particularly useful thanks to the red squares that show the enemy spawn location on the minimap.

Lastly, we've selected Double Time for an increase in Tactical Sprint length that allows you to navigate the map faster.


  • Lethal: Gammon Bomb
  • Tactical: Stim

The Gammon Bomb explodes on impact and can often be quicker than switching to a secondary weapon. As most submachine gunners will be heading right into the thick of the action, choosing Stim is a no-brainer thanks to the instant health regeneration it applies.

Field Upgrade

  • Field Mic

It's strange to see several players overlook the Field Mic as it's an incredibly useful tool to view any opposition that could be in the nearby area. Place it in the corner of a Hardpoint hill for a complete view of anyone attempting to take control.

So far, the Thunderhead blueprint is the best that's available for the Type 100. The dark green camo blends in well with various scenery on the majority of maps and the attachment combination is a quick and easy way to succeed with the SMG.

Is The Type 100 Good in Vanguard?

Without any attachments, there are several better options that are better than the Type 100 but if you stick with it, I can guarantee that it becomes one of the stronger SMGs in the category.
