The best Gorenko loadout enhances the gun’s accuracy.
  • Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel: 240MM ZAC Rapid
  • Stock: ZAC Custom Precision
  • Underbarrel: GF-59 Flashlight
  • Magazine: 13MM AM 10 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: FMJ Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Focus
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The best Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle loadout is tailored around boosting the gun’s accuracy and ammo count. First up on the list is the F8 Stabilizer muzzle and ZAC Custom Precision stock. Both of these attachments greatly increase the Gorenko’s accuracy, while also adding damage and reducing recoil. 

Meanwhile, Focus keeps your shots on target even when you’re being hit by enemy fire. This greatly reduces any frustrating deaths that come from flinching. 

ADS speed is also incredibly important, especially in Vanguard, where the smaller maps require a quick trigger finger. Fortunately, the 240MM ZAC Rapid and Fabric Grip boost ADS and movement speed, which enables you to quickly zap onto your target’s head. 

Running out of ammo with your primary can prove troublesome in Vanguard, so we’ve kitted the Gorenko out with the 13MM AM 10 Round Mags. Not only does this give you the maximum amount of rounds, but the addition of Fully Loaded will also ensure you never run into ammo issues.

Adding to this is the FMJ Rounds. These bullets come with added penetration, which enables you to shoot through walls and kill enemies that are hiding behind cover. Lastly, the GF-59 Flashlight makes spotting enemies easier, highlighting their nameplates across larger distances. 

Best Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle Vanguard class (Perks, Equipment & Field Upgrade)

Our Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle loadout uses Vanguard’s meta perks.
  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Tactician
  • Secondary: Machine Pistol
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: No 69 Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Tactical Insertion

The best Gorenko loadout uses Ghost, Forward Intel, and Tactician as its perk choices. Just like previous CoD titles, Ghost keeps you hidden from Spy Planes and enemy equipment, which enables you to stealthily take down your foes. 

Next up is Forward Intel. This perk is arguably the most powerful in the game as it enables you to instantly gain knowledge on enemy locations without running any reconnaissance killstreaks. 

Tactician enables you to resupply your No 69 Stun Grenade. This can prove invaluable in close-quarter scenarios or when you need to make a quick getaway. Due to the slower fire rate of the Gorenko Anti-Tank Sniper Rifle, you’ll want to pick Machine Pistol as your Secondary.

This deadly pistol comes pack with a fast rate of fire and decent accuracy, making it highly reliable in close-range scenarios. Lastly, Tactical Insertion enables you to instantly spawn at your previous location, which can be incredibly useful if you wish to get back to a advantageous spot.
