A staple of Russian weaponry

With Vanguard now in the wild for players to enjoy, users are exploring the many weapons available and there's been some new weapons introduced into the weapon pool that players have flocked too.

The AS44 is one of the ARs within the game that have gathered a lot of players attention and rightfully so, as the weapon is a powerhouse with the right attachements.

Here's the best loadout for the AS44 in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Best AS44 Class for 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 AS44 is one of the ARs within the game, and has one of the higher rate of fires among the other rifles, but suffers from low ammo.
With this said, we've created a nice loadout for the AS44 which should yield some fantastic results when used correctly.


  • Muzzle
    • F8 Stabilizer
  • Barrel
    • Empress 400mm
  • Optic
    • Slate Reflector
  • Stock
    • Zac 12B Custom
  • Underbarrel
    • M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine
    • .30 Russian Short 60 Round Drum
  • Ammo Type
    • Lengthened
  • Rear Grip
    • Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency
    • Gung-Ho
  • Kit
    • Fully Loaded
This setup is tailored for a wide range of battles when using the AS44, as while we noted above the weapon deals great damage, it does burn through ammo faster than most ARs.
So, we've added the extended mag and some other attachements that should enhance the performance of this weapon, so you can use it up close, or at longer distances.
There's some Muzzle attachments that are decent for the AS44, but we've chosen the F8 Stablizier is null out some of the increeased recoil the weapon has at the start.
Your Barrel choices are decent, and while we were tempted to make the AS44 burst fire, we've opted for the Empress 400mm. Allowing players to gain some more accuracy.
Your Optic comes down to preference in my opinion the Salte Reflector is one of the best within the game.
For Stock, the options bascially come down to whether or not you're going to want more speed or more recoil recovery. We've opted for the rather perk, as the Zac 12B Custom does a fantastic job at this.
The Underbarrel option is one that's subject to change depending as there's some decent options here once again. We've chosen the M1941 Hand Stop, for the benefits allocated to recoil and accuracy for the AS44.
The Magazine attachments are rather poor for the AS44, and with the weapon using a lot of ammo regardless, opting for the 60 Round Drum is the best route to go.
We've gone with the Lengthened rounds for this setup, none of the other options are really useable. But, if you want, you can experiment with the FMJ or Subsonic rounds!
More recoil buffs comes into play with the Rear Grip choice we've opted for with the Stippled Grip.
Your Proficiency also has some poor options for some reason, so for the added benefit of firing while sprinting, we've chosen Gung-Ho.
Your Kit option is going to be Fully Loaded, as you're going to need all the ammo you can have with the AS44.


I would go with the Machine Pistol, simply because it's regarded as one of the best pistols within Vanguard. As well, you're going to need something fast if you run out of ammo in a pinch.

Lethal & Tactical

  • Thermite
  • Stun Grenade

Termite's are one of the best letahls to use within Vanguard, they're rather annoying to go up against and deal incredible damage to opposing players.

While on the flipside, the Stun Grenade is a classic tactical to use, and will help you taking objectives.


  • Ghost
  • Piercing Vision
  • Double Time

Ghost will keep you off the enemy radar while is always viable at any given time.

Piercing Vision is highly regarded as the best secondary perk, as you'll be able to see enemies through walls essentially.  

The third perk is Double Time, allowing you to sprint for longer durrations at a time.

Field Upgrade

  • Armor Plates

This Field Upgrade is bascially as the name entails, it gives players an added boost of health in the form of a armor plate the player will equip. This can be life or death changing given the situation, and espcially so if you're rocking an AR or SMG.
