The Best KG M40 Class And Loadout In Vanguard


Vanguard has entered Season 2 and a brand new weapon is available for players to wield - the KG M40 Assault Rifle.

This Swedish Rifle is very accurate and consistent in its damage, making it a solid weapon in the vast open spaces of Vanguard.

Here's the best loadout for the KG M40 in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best KG M40 Class Vanguard

With a staggering, 10 attachments to pick on your weapon, you're truly spoilt for choice.
When choosing your attachments, you'll want to consider what attachments will improve this weapons weak areas and how you tend to play.
The KG M40 is an overall decent weapon, but like most in Vanguard/Warzone, it suffers from some fatal flaws that are holding it back when it's all said and done.


  • Muzzle
    • Recoil Booster
  • Barrel
    • Reisdorf 720mm Shrouded
  • Optic
    • Slate Reflector
  • Stock
    • VDD 22G Padded
  • Underbarrel
    • M1930 Strife Angled
  • Magazine
    • .30-06 60 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type
    • Lengenthed
  • Rear Grip
    • Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1
    • Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 2
    • Fully Loaded
This setup is tailored to getting up close and personal with enemies, mainly due to the oversized ammo you'll have, along with the increased firepower and ADS time.
The Muzzle we've chosen is one of the best ones for the KG40 as it increase its rate of fire without comprimising too much on recoil control.
Your Barrel choices are more limited, but while the 700mm offers some decent range, allowing you to pierce enemies from further distances with this weapon.
Your Optic comes down to preference in my opinion, but a nice clean optic will never do you wrong. - the Slate Reflector is far more at home in a multiplayer like Vanguard
The Stock choice will see you lose out on some accuracy, but you'll gain back some of the lost sprint to fire speed with this Stock, and your overall movement speed will increase.
The Underbarrel choice is a straight forward choice, with the M1930 being the clear cut favorite due to the recoil control that comes with it.
If you don't equip a Magazine attachment, that's entirely up to you, but we highly recommend the 60 Round Drum mag here for the added damage.
Of all the Ammo Types, Lengenthed is without a doubt the best and most players are running this ammo type - it increases the bullet velocity making sure your damage range stays intact.
Another attachment that you can change our depending on personal preference is the Polymer Grip for the Rear Grip. It'll help with the control of any recoil.
Your Perk 1 is a preference call - but we've gone for Sleight of Hand as the reload time can be sluggish.
Lastly, your Perk 2 will again come down to preference. Most of them don't do much, so Fully Loaded starts your player fully geared up!


I would go with the RATT Pistol as it's a fast firing, reliable option when you need a quick weapon swap.

You can easily opt for Overkill and pick one of the many great SMGs Vanguard has to offer.

Lethal & Tactical

  • Sticky Bomb
  • S-Mine 44

The Sticky Bomb is great for quick throws and warding off advancing enemies while the S-Mine will watch your back if you're a more defensive player.


  • Ghost
  • Radar
  • Lightweight

Ghost will keep your hidden from UAVs while Radar will give you a better idea of where the enemy are.

Lightweight will help to overcome any issues with sluggish movement speed.
