  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Jonsson 9″ RMK
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Karlsson Padded Coz
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 9mm 72 Round Mags

  • Kit: Quick

Our best H4 Blixen (Carl Gustaf) Vanguard loadout is fairly similar to our Warzone version, with the build increasing the gun’s damage and mobility. As the majority of engagements in Vanguard favor close to mid-range firefights, we’ve utilized attachments that help keep it competitive in these scenarios. 

First up is the Recoil Booster and Jonsson 9″ RMK. These two attachments raise the SMG’s fire rate, ensuring you’re dishing out as much damage as possible. In fact, the H4 Blixen can quickly chew through ammunition, so we recommend using the 9mm 72 Round Mags.

The increase in fire rate does come at a cost to accuracy, but this weakness can be covered up by using the Karlsson Padded Coz and M1941 Hand Stop. Because of the added accuracy increase, the Slate Reflector is a perfect choice. 

Not only is it one of the cleanest Optics in the game, but it is also the best option for close-range firefights. After all, having an Optic that doesn’t hinder your vision and ADS time is incredibly important. 

In order to raise the H4 Blixen’s ADS speed and overall mobility, the Fabric Grip, Fleet, and Quick are the best options. So, if you enjoy going for sneaky flanks or aggressively rushing down your foes, then be sure to equip these attachments.

While you’ll primarily be using the H4 Blixen in close-range engagements, the added bullet velocity from Lengthened does make hitting distant targets easier – an area that can prove vital on Vanguard’s larger maps.

Our H4 Blixen Vanguard loadout uses a number of popular Perks.

Perks & equipment

  • Perk 1: Fortified
  • Perk 2: Forward Intel
  • Perk 3: Lightweight
  • Secondary: Machine Pistol
  • Lethal: MK2 Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade

The best H4 Blixen (Carl Gustaf) loadout uses Fortified, Forward Intel, and Lightweight as its Perk choices. Fortified reduces the damage done by enemy explosives and fire, which gives you more survivability. 

Next up is Forward Intel. This perk enables you to instantly gain knowledge on enemy locations without the need to run any reconnaissance Killstreaks. Knowing enemy spawn rotations and avoiding any backstabs is extremely useful, so this Perk is a must for high killcount games.

Rounding off the list is Lightweight. As the H4 Blixen favor close-range firefights, this class greatly benefits from the added mobility of gained from Lightweight. Simply tear around the map and use the added speed to run rings around your foes. 

Having access to MK2 Frag Grenades is always nice, particularly when you need to flush out pesky campers. While the H4 Blixen’s 72 Round Mags will give you plenty of ammunition, the Machine Pistol can get you out of a tight situation.

Lastly, both the Stun Grenade and Armor Field Upgrade maximize your survivability, enabling you to turn the tide of even the fiercest of firefights.
