There are a plethora of viable close-range weapons in Vanguard and the Einhorn Revolving is at the top of the pack. Here’s the best class to use if you’re looking to shut down those enemy SMG players.

The Einhorn Revolving shotgun is a prototype build that crosses the mechanics of a six-shooter with the big boom of a traditional pellet-loaded shotgun. While that mix seems odd at first, the final result is a vicious crowd-controller that can keep up with any other shotty in the game.

If you’re tired of being picked apart by those speedy MP-40 players consider trying out our carefully curated Einhorn loadout.

The Einhorn Revolving is a terror in the short-to-medium range.
This Einhorn loadout can easily rack up the killstreaks.
  • Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
  • Stock: Klauser S2
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: 12 Gauge 5 Round Cylinder
  • Ammo Type: Buck and Slug
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

This loadout is focused on maximizing one-shot potential so that each pull of the trigger can be focused on a new target.

Our choice for the M97 Full Choke and SMLE Pistol Grip is all about making sure your aim and pellet spread are exactly aligned so that you’ll only have to take one pop at the enemy to secure a kill. The 12 Gauge 5 Round Cylinder adds some range to an otherwise limited loadout, which should help players from feeling trapped in any long hallways or fields without cover.

Our picks for the Fabric Grip, Klauser S2 stock, and Slate Reflector optic are all about maintaining a good balance between hipfire and ADS accuracy, as you’ll need to rely on both to get the most out of this setup.

The Sleight of Hand proficiency and Fully Loaded kit picks are necessities on the Einhorn, as the gun’s slow reload time and limited ammo pool would otherwise eat away its potential.

  • Secondary: Klauser Pistol
  • Lethal: Mk2 Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

All of the perks for this loadout are about maneuvering quickly and under the radar, keeping you safe while you stalk your prey.

Using Ninja will keep you silent as you zoom around the map, making sure no opposing players get the drop on you first.

The extended sprint distance of Double Time plus the early danger warning of High Alert should also keep you relatively safe while you close the distance on enemy teams.

Adding the Klauser pistol as a secondary leaves some room for taking long-range gunfights, as the pistol has the best-in-class range in terms of sidearms, and the smoke grenade will be handy when you inevitably need to make a quick get away from a bad situation.
