With Season 3 of Call of Duty: Vanguard, two new weapons entered the fray in multiplayer. Arguably the more noteworthy is the Nikita AVT assault rifle, which is unlocked at tier 31 of the Season 3 Battle Pass. While players will have to grind, or pay, to get the weapon, they won’t be sorry they did. The Nikita AVT has a powerful loadout in Vanguard that can be used in any manner of situation in multiplayer.
However, just like acquiring the base weapon itself, players will also have to grind to unlock the necessary loadout attachments. Some are unlocked fairly late in the Nikita’s leveling cycle, so players should try and make use of Double Weapon XP as much as possible. Once they get the Nikita AVT to max level, though, they can take on any gun in the game with its top loadout.
For a full look at the Nikita AVT’s loadout in Vanguard, keep reading below.
Best Nikita AVT loadout in Vanguard
The Nikita AVT has the fastest fire rate of any other assault rifle in Vanguard multiplayer. This means that if players can control the rifle, they can kill enemies in the blink of an eye. The top loadout for the Nikita AVT helps to manage any recoil it has while also improving its base mobility and further strengthening its fire rate.
- Muzzle: Recoil Booster
- Barrel: Kovalevskaya 546mm Sniper
- Optic: Slate Reflector
- Stock: ZAC MS
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 7.62x54MMR 45 Round Mags
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
- Proficiency: Brace
- Kit: Fully Loaded
The Recoil Booster starts off the loadout to make the Nikita have an even faster fire rate. This is followed by a few attachments to lower the rifle’s recoil so players can focus on shooting enemies straight. There are also some attachments that improve mobility so players can use the Nikita as a mini-SMG if they wish.
