Not everyone is an AR man and there is a huge fan for SMGs in Call of Duty games. This year’s Call of Duty Vanguard is no different and like every year, we are getting some new SMGs to play with. In this guide, we will discuss the best SMGs available in the newly released Call of Duty Vanguard.

Call of Duty Vanguard Best SMGs

At launch there are 6 SMGs available in the game:

  • MP40
  • Sten
  • Type 100
  • Owen Gun
  • PPSH-41
  • M1928


Hands down the best SMG in the game is MP40. While we are still trying to figure out what the best setup for this weapon is, even the base version alone without any attachments is killer. The best attachments would be the ones that increase bullet velocity and speed up your reload times.

Type 100

Type 100 is aim over damage which means you will be doing less damage but your aim will be steady as a rock. Type 100 is best used in bigger maps where you need to fight at short to medium range. Use attachments that increase mag size and further boost your accuracy.

Owen Gun

Owen Gun will surely be an acquired taste in Call of Duty Vanguard. It has a low rate of fire but its effective in long-range combat due to its high accuracy and damage range. If you want something that nails your targets at long range, this SMG is for you. However, at short range, you will be bested in most cases against the MP40.
