Here’s the best MP40 loadout and class build for Vanguard’s multiplayer – can it live up to previous iterations?

Vanguard’s MP40 – Submachine Gun

Thanks to its history in Call of Duty titles, the MP-40 has become a trusted Submachine Gun for many players over the years. It’s popped up in Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, World at War, multiple Black Ops games, Advanced Warfare, WWII, and now it’s going to appear in Call of Duty Vanguard.
