The SVT-40 is a Marksman Rifle in Call of Duty: Vanguard with the ability to be one of the more dominant guns in multiplayer. However, players have overlooked the SVT-40 in the early weeks of Sledgehammer Games’ shooter. While some might scoff at the arduous process to level it up, it is worthwhile it to take the time to grind. This top SVT-40 loadout is worth it.

Unbeknownst to many players in the community, the SVT-40 can actually be turned into a miniature sniper rifle. Players can pick enemies off one by one on almost any map in Vanguard with the correct set of attachments. The gun might not be much use on maps like Dome or Shipment, but any medium-sized map is a playground for the SVT-40.

Best SVT-40 loadout in Vanguard

Using the right set of attachments, players can make the SVT-40 a one-shot kill machine. Here are the specific attachments to make that happen:

  • Muzzle: L Brake
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 800mm B03
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: .303 British 10 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

The two most important attachments that players will want to use on the SVT-40 is the Kovalevskaya 800mm B03 barrel and the Vital Proficiency. The barrel expands the one-shot kill area of the SVT-40 and also adds recoil control and accuracy. The Vital Proficiency increases the critical hit area.

The rest of the loadout helps with recoil control, flinch resistance, bullet velocity and mobility. Players have a true jack-of-all-trades weapon on their hands if they take the time to rank it up in Vanguard.
