Despite the array of new Call of Duty: Vanguard content, the majority of players will be familiar with the gunsmith. Although it has made a return, you can now use up to ten attachments on your weapons for the first time. Therefore, it can be difficult to find the best combination to take to the battlefield. Making a solid Sten class will give you a submachine gun that you can rely on in Call of Duty: Vanguard, even more so with the best attachments.

The Sten is best suited to the kind of battles where you are getting up close and personal with your opponents. With the different types of combat pacing in Call of Duty: Vanguard, you can definitely find yourself in a lot of these fights. More specifically, the gun is best suited to small scale maps such as Hotel Royal and Eagle’s Nest. Here, you will find yourself in plenty of close-quarter engagements. To create the best class, there will be a focus on speed and accuracy, particularly hip fire accuracy.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Sten class

  • Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
  • Barrel: Hockenson 174mm B11S
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Stock: Gawain Para
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Proficiency: Frenzy
  • Kit: On-Hand
  • Optic: Slate Reflector

To begin, the M1929 Silencer Muzzle provides you with sound suppression, meaning your shots will stay undetected from the mini map. At the same time, the attachment will boost your accuracy. Also, the Hockenson 174mm B11S Barrel is useful for a submachine gun such as the Sten, as it increases your hip fire accuracy, recoil recovery, and hip fire recoil recovery. Pairing this with the Carver Foregrip Underbarrel will further boost your hip fire accuracy and recoil control. As a result, your gun will be super accurate when you are taking on close-quarter engagements.

How fast can you go with the Sten?

In addition, taking speed into consideration is important when you are running and gunning with a submachine gun. Equipping the Gawain Para Stock will see you experience added sprint to fire speed and movement speed. Then, the Polymer Grip betters your flinch resistance, accuracy, and recoil during sustained fire, when you find yourself face to face with an opponent.

In terms of an Ammunition Type, Lengthened is one of the best options in this category. Granting you an extra 30% bullet velocity with no drawbacks makes it hard to overlook. Another attachment that you do not want to miss out on is the Frenzy Proficiency. This will immediately regenerate your health once you get a kill, so nothing can stop you in your tracks. You can reinforce this by using the On-Hand Kit for equipment dexterity.

To complete your Vanguard Sten class, the Slate Reflector is a clear sight that will allow you to take out enemies with precision. Moreover, if you find yourself in medium range fights, this can prove to be useful. However, if you prefer to use the weapon without an Optic, the build will be just as strong.
