Best Itra Burst Vanguard class loadout: Attachments, Perks, Proficiency, Setup

Vanguard Itra Burst loadout

The Itra Burst is a powerful Assault Rifle in CoD Vanguard capable of knocking foes down with a single well-placed shot. Here’s an optimal loadout build to help you get the most out of this deadly burst-fire weapon.

Unlike most Assault Rifles in Vanguard, the Itra Burst isn’t full-auto as the name implies. Rather than holding down the trigger, this burst-rifle fires three shots at once, meaning precision and timing are key.

While burst-fire weapons are often overlooked in CoD, the Itra Burst is no slouch. Just a single shot can take down targets from mid to long-range, and it’s even more lethal with the right attachments equipped.

Here’s the best Itra Burst build to make this unique burst-rifle one of the most feared Assault Rifles in Vanguard.

With the right loadout, the Itra Burst can one-shot everyone.


  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Botti 300MM CXII
  • Optic: MK 18 Sunfilter
  • Stock: Perfetto Padded Grip
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: 8MM Jaeger 32 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: On-Hand

Without any upgrades equipped, the Itra Burst has some noticeable downsides. Its ADS speed is fairly slow, as is the overall rate of fire. With damage already quite high, these are the key areas you want to focus on improving with the right build.

With that in mind, the Recoil Booster Muzzle is first on the list. The name is a little inaccurate here as this attachment actually improves your fire rate instead. While it does come with some negative effects, this Muzzle only impacts horizontal recoil, not vertical, so your shots will still be mostly on point.

Next is the Botti 300MM CXII Barrel, an attachment that appears to be outright broken at this stage. Not only does it provide a huge 40% improvement to recoil control, but it also comes with an absurd 1591.9% boost to damage range. Simply put, this attachment is a must-pick and will ensure you delete enemies at medium to long-range.

When it comes to choosing an Optic, it’s purely down to personal preference here. If your playstyle is more aggressive, quick and easy scopes are ideal. If you prefer to sit back and play patient, longer-range scopes are for you. We’ve gone with the MK 18 Sunfilter as a middle-of-the-road option to give a slight zoom without any negative effects.

Certain attachments provide minor effects while others completely change the gun.

As one of the more significant attachments in this build, the Perfetto Padded Grip Stock comes with some major positives and negatives. On one hand, it provides huge recoil boosts, keeping your bursts as accurate as possible. On the other, it comes with a big hit to your sprint to fire speed.

That’s where the SMLE Pistol Grip Underbarrel comes in to counteract the Stock. While the previous attachment makes your sprint to fire speed 30% worse, this Underbarrel brings it back to just 10% slower than default.

This gives you the most precise loadout possible, with just a small downside to mobility.

In terms of Magazines, there isn’t a clear standout option for the Itra Burst. Most come with severe negative effects that can’t be justified. As a result, the 8MM Jaeger 32 Round Drums are the only viable option, providing a small bump in mag size, with only half a second added to your reload time.

Making your shots all the more powerful, the Lengthened Ammo Type is another must-pick attachment for the Itra Burst. Bullet velocity is always important and this option provides a massive boost to the stat.

Bullet Velocity is too important to neglect in Vanguard.

Next up is the Stippled Grip Reap Grip for further recoil control. This attachment keeps your initial shots on target, making each burst that much more accurate and allowing you to one-shot enemies at medium range.

Last but not least come the weapon perks in Proficiency and Kit. For the former, Vital is just too powerful to ignore. By expanding critical hitboxes, you can effectively one-burst enemies even when aiming for the chest. 

Moreover, the On-Hand Kit provides a slight buff to mobility, letting you recover from equipment usage even quicker than usual.

Best Itra Burst Vanguard class (Perks, Equipment, & Field Upgrade)

Equipment typically boils down to personal preference, but there are a few key items you need for this Itra Burst build.
  • Perk 1: Ghost
  • Perk 2: Radar
  • Perk 3: Double Time
  • Secondary: Machine Pistol
  • Lethal: MK2 Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stim
  • Field Upgrade: Armor

When it comes to building the rest of your Itra Burst loadout, selecting the appropriate Perks, Equipment, and Field Upgrades are all essential as well.

As with just about any Assault Rifle class, Ghost, Radar, and Double Time are among the obvious picks. Staying off enemy minimaps while gaining as much intel as possible will help tally up the kills.

As for Double Time, getting out of spawn and into the action as soon as you can is always handy.

You likely won’t be using your secondary all too often, but having a fully automatic weapon on standby definitely helps. That’s why we’ve settled on the Machine Pistol as a last resort for close-range fights if your magazine runs dry.

For Equipment, the standard MK2 Frag Grenade is effective no matter what situation you’re in. Similarly, Stim is crucial in Vanguard to keep you on your feet. After taking damage, Stim will get you right back in the fight with full health and Tac Sprint.

Wrapping up the build is the Armor Field Upgrade that just can’t be overlooked for any build in Vanguard. Adding to your overall health is simply too powerful and thus, another must-pick in this loadout.

Choosing the right Field Upgrade could be the difference between a win and a loss in Vanguard.

So there you have it, our optimal Itra Burst loadout in Vanguard. With this setup, you should be one-bursting from just about any range with near-perfect accuracy.

With this build coming from the recent CoD Vanguard Beta, there’s every chance things change ahead of launch.
