How to Decrease Bloom in Vanguard

As players continue to get to grips with Call of Duty Vanguard, many have been left frustrated by the hidden inclusion of the bloom mechanic which has recently received a nerf. Otherwise known as ADS Spread, bloom means that some shots will not reach the intended target which is certainly annoying during the course of a match.

As Season 1 approaches, there are some ways in which levels of bloom can be reduced, ensuring high levels of accuracy are maintained at all times. In this guide, find out everything about Vanguard's bloom mechanic along with some hand tips on how to reduce it.

What Is Bloom?

Bloom is a mechanic that's included in several shooters that makes bullets travel in different directions as you continue to fire a weapon, with the pattern blooming like a plant. Fortnite players will be familiar with bloom but for Call of Duty, the mechanic is a new addition, much to the annoyance of players.

To minimise bloom in Vanguard, attachments that influence levels of accuracy can be equipped in a bid to keep the bullets on target but with so many to select, it can be tricky to find which are the best to use.

Best Accuracy Attachments in Vanguard

To save you the hard work of sifting through every single attachment, we've headed into the Gunsmith for the STEN SMG and found this set of attachments that will provide significant improvement to accuracy levels.:

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Muzzle: No. 3 Rifle Brake
  • Muzzle: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Muzzle: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Stock: Hockenson S33S Padded
  • Rear Grip: Grooved Grip
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip

As long as the accuracy stat bar is showing green, the levels of bloom will be better than the base version of the weapon you're using.

There you have it, that's absolutely everything you need to know about decreasing bloom in Vanguard multiplayer! For more useful guides, check out the best FOV settings to use along with our definitive LMG tier list.
