Best guns in CoD: Vanguard Alpha

There are four main weapons that people are using in Champion Hill. The STG44, MP-40, BAR, and M1942 are by far the best weapons available for players to use.

Content creator JGOD got some early access to the game, and has gone through and created a rough estimate of these four gun’s TTK. (A reminder that these are estimates, and may not account for armor or other factors.)

According to JGOD’s testing, the MP-40 has the fastest TTK in Champion Hill.

As shown in his chart, the MP-40 has the fastest TTK at 293. Although this weapon does not have the fastest rate of fire out of these four, it has low recoil and is easy to use.

Although the MP-40 has the fastest TTK, it still comes down to preference as the BAR is another weapon that does a lot of damage but has a lower rate of fire. You can test any of these weapons out in your games, or try something else like the snipers if that fits your playstyle more.
