Pay attention to those who come in deep Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer at the moment, there is a certain attachment that takes over the game mode at the moment because of how fast the time to kill becomes on weapons it can be found on. As it is right now, it is safe to say that it needs its damage adjusted a little bit, so try to get the most out of it while you can!
We are talking about, of course Vital skill, an attachment that requires a weapon rating of 50 before it is available for use. The way it works is simple – it extends the critically affected areas from only to the head to the entire upper body – making it easier to do large amounts of damage per. shot.
As Dorrani explains in his video showing the attachment of a number of weapons, this drastically lowers the time it takes to kill other players in all areas. All you have to do is aim guard at the top half of an enemy and chances are you will melt them.
The skills are only available on a small selection of weapons right now, across multiple weapon types. These are the STG44 assault rifle, the ITRA Burst assault rifle, the Type 100 SMG, the M1 Garand sniper rifle and one of the snipers. To see it in action, the video embedded above has dedicated a lot of time to showing this attachment – so watch it for yourself to see the damage you can do.
As pointed out in the video, this skill is great on any weapon it can be found on, but it is the automatic rifles and smgs that get the most out of it as the sniper and sniper rifles are already killing so fast. We recommend equipping the Vital skill as soon as possible if you use any of the above weapons.
If you’re looking for a list of the best weapons to use in Call of Duty: Vanguard (spoiler, STG44 is there if you want to push for Vital), we have a list of the top five right here for you to read through . While we’re at it, there’s another combination of attachments that seriously increases the power of the MP40, which you can also find out more about.
