The MP40 has dominated in Call of Duty: Vanguard since its launch, and it's no surprise that the submachine gun has broken into the competitive scene. Although it's the first submachine gun that players will unlock in Call of Duty: Vanguard, it remains the most powerful.
One of the defining features of the MP40 is just how strong the weapon is as a base weapon. The only other weapon that is comparable, in terms of default power, is the STG44. Other weapons can come close, but they need plenty of levels and attachments. On the other hand, the MP40 begins strong and finishes at the top as well.
The best attachments for a competitive MP40 in Call of Duty: Vanguard
With so many attachments to choose from in Call of Duty: Vanguard, it can be hard to tell what the best combination is. On the MP40, all of the slots are useful and there are some universally selected options. Some attachments are up for discussion and each one in the loadout is listed below.
Best attachments for a competitive MP40:
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Krausnick 317mm 04B
- Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
- Stock: Krausnick 33m Folding
- Magazine: 9mm 24 Round Fast Mags
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Kit: Quick
- Proficiency: Brace
While the Krausnick 317mm 04B is a universally equipped barrel, the muzzle that goes on it is subject to change, depending on the player. In this loadout, the recoil booster is the best option, as it adds +2 fire rate at the cost of accuracy. The equipped barrel will compensate for that loss and more in terms of control and range.
Then there are the grip attachments, which also have varying options. For the underbarrel, the Carver Foregrip will give the MP40 recoil control and more hip fire accuracy; which are both fantastic in Call of Duty: Vanguard. Stippled Grip handles on the rear grip will give the weapon even more control. With that added control, players can equip a folding stock for even more speed on the MP40.

The passive attachments are fairly simple across the board on the MP40. Lengthened bullets are a must-have in Call of Duty: Vanguard due to the +3 bullet velocity increase. Brace will offer players more control over the weapon on initial shots, and Quick will give the loadout more sprint speed. Overall, this loadout will provide players a competitive edge in Call of Duty: Vanguard.
