The Vargo S assault rifle (AR) is the latest gun arriving to the Vanguard arsenal as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update. Although the attention of Activision has turned to Warzone, there's still plenty of new content making its way to multiplayer and zombies.

Described as an AR that trades "firepower for improved accuracy and fire rate," there's a high chance it could provide a much-needed change to the current metagame. The Vargo S becomes the 11th AR to appear in Vanguard which is annoying for fans hoping for the return of classic WWII weaponry.

Thanks to the Gunsmith, there are numerous ways to configure the Vargo S to suit all styles of play and to extract the highest levels of performance. With that said, find the best Vargo S Vanguard loadout along with the best attachments to use in our handy loadout guide.

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

Fortified increases resistance to any incoming explosives while Forward Intel adds red boxes to the minimap. The boxes allow you to see where the opposition is spawning which is particularly useful in objective game modes such as Hardpoint and Domination.

Lastly, we've gone with Double Time for an increased Tactical Sprint length for some faster movement speed.


  • Frag Grenade (Lethal)
  • No. 69 Stun Grenade (Tactical)

The trusty combination of a Frag and Stun Grenade is arguably the best to use in Vanguard. Cooking a Frag to perfection allows you to deal even more damage to nearby opposition while the Stun Grenade slows movement enough to score some incredibly easy kills.
