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. As Season 1 nears, 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
- Optic: Nydar Model 47
- Stock: Shiraishi T100
- Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
- Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
- Rear Grip: Leather Grip
- Proficiency: Vital
- 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 Mark VI Skeletal and Leather 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 Loadout in Vanguard
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.
- Perk 1: Ghost
- Perk 2: Radar
- Perk 3: Lightweight
Ghost is essential in order to conceal your location from any enemy Spy Planes while Radar gives you the ability to spot any unsuppressed gunfire on the minimap. While many may opt for Double Time, we've selected Lightweight for a further increase in movement speed, which is significant when in close proximity and the slightest move can make all the difference.
- 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 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.
The Best Type 100 Blueprint in Vanguard
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.
