Raven Software just launched the Warzone Pacific update and with it came a host of new weapons. With the introduction of Caldera and Vanguard being integrated into Warzone, it has been an eventful update so far. A lot of players are not sure about which loadout to pick with all of the options that are available right now.

FaZe Clan’s Ean “Booya” Chase shared his favorite loadout on Twitter and it has been picked up by a lot of players dropping into Caldera for the first time. The NZ-41 assault rifle seems to be the go-to option for a lot of players. While the mid-range weapon does not feel all that great in Vanguard Multiplayer, it absolutely destroys everything in Vanguard Royale. With that said, find the best Vanguard Royale loadout to use in this guide!

  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: Orbweaver 360mm BC
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: LOR Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 9mm Sakura 45 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Rubber Grip
  • Perk 1: Brace
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

The NZ-41 does not boast of the highest range for an Assault Rifle but it hits harder than any other weapon in its category. The F8 Stabilizer and Carver Foregrip are must-haves if you want to boost the weapon’s recoil and accuracy.

The LOR Reinforced Stock can feel weird as it boosts the initial firing recoil but it diminishes recoil when using the NZ-41 for a sustained fire which can be handy at range.

Best Vanguard Royale Loadout

If you are using a long-range weapon like the NZ-41, you need to pair it with a close-range SMG like the M1928 or the MP40  to complement your primary weapon. If you don’t like using SMGs, you can opt for the Combat Shotgun which has an absurd range for a close-quarters weapon.


  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped

EOD is a defensive Perk that reduces incoming damage from non-killstreak explosives and fire. Overkill and Amped on the other hand allow you to pull out your SMG in sticky situations and fire away at your enemy without needing to rely on your NZ-41.


  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stun

The Throwing Knife and Stun Grenade combo never gets old for any player that likes to use a long-range weapon like the NZ-41. Stun your enemy with the nade to slow their movement and aim. Follow up by aiming your Throwing Knife dead center at your enemy to one-shot them.

Is the NZ-41 Good in Vanguard Royale?


The NZ-41 might not be meta in Vanguard Multiplayer but long-range weapons are lethal in Vanguard Royale. If you are comfortable with the G16 2.5x Optic on the NZ-41, you will be able to secure kills at medium range without putting yourself in danger. A balance pass is likely to drop in the near future but until Raven Software addresses the outliers in the current meta, the NZ-41 is going to be king.
