In Call of Duty: Vanguard, the G-43 is an average tactical rifle that gets outclassed by many other weapons. It’s a single-shot weapon that can deal a moderate amount of damage and has a decent loadout. It hasn’t broken into the meta because there’s always been stronger options, but that narrative might change with Warzone Pacific. The gun has a powerhouse loadout for medium-range gunfights.
Caldera is a terrific map for longer-range weapons like the G-43. There are multiple spots that feature long sightlines, perfect for a tactical rifle. Of course, players still need to know how to deal enough damage, while keeping a steady recoil, to maximize their potential with the G-43 in Warzone Pacific. The tactical rifle’s recommended loadout is viewable below.
Best G-43 loadout in Warzone Pacific
The one downside to using the G-43 in Warzone Pacific is that it takes a bit too long to eliminate an enemy. Its damage range potential simply isn’t high enough to knock down enemies in a few shots at long-range. That said, the G-43’s top loadout focuses on medium-range engagements while also keeping it proficient up close, if the situation calls for it.
- Muzzle: Mercury Silencer
- Barrel: Wyvern 570mm Full-Auto
- Optic:1229/Slate 3.25x Custom
- Stock: Wyvern Skeletal
- Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
- Magazine: 6.5mm Sakura 20 Round
- Ammo Type: Lengthened
- Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
- Perk: Tight Grip
- Perk 2: Fully Loaded
The most noteworthy attachment on this loadout is the Wyvern 520mm Full-Auto barrel. This turns the G-43 into a fully-auto weapon, which takes away its ability to stay on target at long-range. While there are attachments to increase recoil control, like the Mercury Silencer, M1941 Hand Stop and Polymer Grip, the G-43 is still best-used at close to medium-range.
The Wyvern Skeletal is in use to increase the G-43’s mobility by boosting sprint-to-fire speed. Players will be able to pull their gun up much quicker than before. If they decide to use the G-43 in close-range, they can use the smaller optic on the 1229/Slate 3.25x Custom scope. If they’re at a longer-range, though, they can opt for the 3.25x zoom scope. The G-43 offers the best of both worlds in Warzone Pacific.
