Best Type 100 Vanguard loadout

The best Type 100 loadout is capable of dishing out huge amounts of damage.
  • Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
  • Barrel: Warubachi 134MM Rapid
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Warubachi Skeletal
  • Underbarrel: M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short 30 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The best Type 100 loadout is tailored around boosting the gun’s firepower and ammo capacity. First up on the list is the M1929 Silencer – a staple choice on Vanguard meta SMGs. This muzzle keeps your shots silenced and increases the gun’s accuracy, while the M1930 Strife Angled underbarrel also improves this area even further. 

Having attachments that aid the Type 100’s accuracy is incredibly important, especially since they help counter the recoil from using the .30 Russian Short 30 Round Mags. However, the added damage, bullet velocity, range, and penetration from this Magazine are well worth the tradeoff. 

Adding to the damage range is the Warubachi 134MM Rapid barrel, which helps give you a fighting chance during mid-range firefights. The Slate Reflector also provides you with a clean sight without any obstructions to your vision.

The Type 100’s main damage increase comes from both the Hollow Point rounds and Vital Proficiency attachments. Not only do these increase limb damage, but they also apply the headshot damage bonus to bodyshots. This greatly increases your DPS and turns the Type 100 into an absolute monster. 

Meanwhile, the Warubachi Skeletal and Fabric Grip enhance the gun’s ADS speed and overall mobility, enabling you to aggressively rush down your foes and react to incoming threats. Pair this with Fully Loaded and you have an SMG that can mow down multiple enemies in the blink of an eye.

Next up is Radar. Lots of players are still unsure of how to be properly suppressed and silenced in Vanguard. So Radar will help flush out players that aren’t properly hidden from the minimap when firing.

Lightweight is a great choice for any close-quarters loadout as it enables you to quickly close the gap, while the added movement speed makes you harder to hit. The Machine Pistol is also a solid secondary and can deliver plenty of kills if you run out of Type 100 ammo.

Lastly, both the Stim and Dead Silence help maximize your movement and survivability, enabling you to turn the tide of even the fiercest of firefights.

Here are a few tips on how to maximize our best Type 100 Vanguard loadout:

  • The field upgrade “Dead Silence” completely removes your footstep audio from the equation. During this limited window, you can either choose to flank enemies, escape sticky situations, or make a stealthy play for the objective.

Also, remember to always develop a playstyle that feels the best for you. With that said, if you’re still struggling to succeed with the Type 100, these tips should be helpful.
