The highly anticipated arrival of Call of Duty: Vanguard has delivered a new single player campaign, multiplayer maps and modes, and a new Zombies experience. With Season One just around the corner, there will be even more content to look forward to. For now though, the AS44 is a rifle that can be unlocked once you reach level 33. Following this, you can begin using the AS44 to unlock all the attachments needed to build a viable class in Vanguard’s multiplayer.
The AS44 assault rifle is suited to close-quarter combat and medium range firefights. Thankfully, the weapon already has a good amount of speed behind it, suiting its play style. Making the most of its fast fire rate can propel you to the very top of the lobby leaderboard. However, if you have tried out the weapon already, you will quickly realise that because of its fast fire rate, it has a lot of recoil. Therefore, this class will predominantly focus on improving the accuracy and stability of the gun.

To begin, the F8 Stabilizer improves your accuracy and damage range. Then, the Zac 12B Custom will give your AS44 class multiple benefits that will stabilize your gun overall. The aiming stability will be significantly improved as well as your flinch resistance, recoil recovery, and initial accuracy and recoil. Reinforcing the flinch resistance can be done by using the Polymer Grip, while gaining more accuracy and recoil when sustaining fire. Using this alongside the Zac 650mm Precision Barrel will make your gun even more accurate and controllable. Although it hinders damage dealt to an opponent’s body, it increases your vital damage by 70%. As a result, making the most of the added accuracy to achieve headshots will take enemies down in a flash.
With the AS44, accuracy is key
Next, the M1930 Strife Angled Underbarrel continues to tone down the recoil of the assault rifle. More accuracy, aiming stability, and aim walking steadiness will prove to be useful, especially if you need to use the gun at a longer range.
In terms of a magazine, the .30 Russian Short 60 Round Mags increases your magazine capacity, allowing you to take down even more enemies. Additionally, equipping the Lengthened Ammunition Type attachment will grant 30% extra bullet velocity when firing those extra bullets.
Both the Sleight of Hand Proficiency and the On-hand Kit will assist you to get back into the action quicker. Faster reload speed and equipment dexterity is beneficial to assault rifles most suited to close and medium range combat, just like the AS44. Finally, the Slate Reflector is a reliable option when selecting an Optic to make the most of the increased accuracy.
This AS44 class in Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer can be a fun way to switch up your play style from the traditional assault rifle role.
